And as Americans better understand what perpetuates our artificial differences based on skin color, we all come together to end those differences once and for all. His ensuing life experiment in attentiveness to presence and reality of God was the outcome of a will in the Kingdom of God exercising it’s authority to bring the mind into the Kingdom. And once the kingdom of God on earth arrives, perhaps even socialism might work! That may not have even been the first time; she has responded to my “rhetorical” questions by making headlines jump out of newspapers and magazines that seemed all too coincidentally apt. We do not identify as gay Christians, preferring to use the term "same-sex attracted" (find out why). It is my task to help people who know nothing about any of this to open gently to what is actually going on in ways that are hopeful and feel manageable. I feel that she is also wishing me to be aware of her, especially lately. Some in the Roman church were demanding the right to “eat and drink” regardless of how it affected others. I of course look forward to those posts as well. The objects move in relationship to one another. We are both the soil and the seed. Dear Roberta, I’m at the point in my life where I feel that I’m ready to hear the truth of it all. I think about what that means and how, when, and if I share my new insights and with whom.

But if you were just now learning that God is a Collective of Perfected Beings at the highest vibration of the Consciousness which is all that exists, and your own mind is part of that vast eternal Consciousness and God works in your life through your primary spirit guide, and by the way you wrote a life plan before you were born and your guide is trying hard to help you hit all the marks that you set for yourself but of which you are not consciously aware… if you knew none of it and then you suddenly were told all of that, your mind would go on tilt! Nowhere in Scripture are we ever told to "build the Kingdom of God" here on earth. Once, the disciples asked Him. Even with the consciousness of all humanity vibrating now in such deep fear that upper-level beings who are not in bodies warn that our survival as a species is at risk, you still can see that human impulse toward unity and universal love.

So I’m certainly feeling ready for this next step of contacting my primary guide. This is lovely to read, dear Raneil. That the kingdom of God can be equated with the sphere of salvation is evident in John 3:5–7, where Jesus says the kingdom of God must be entered into by being born again.

It started slowly as I realized a lot of the ideas I encountered in other religious traditions both echoed and at the same time contrasted with my own traditions. While the Kingdom is primarily an end-times event, there are ways that the Gospel Message can have an effect on us today. That is why my Fun books are so gentle and so accessible.

As Paul put it. Kingdom living has to do with activating spiritual authority because the kingdom of God is within you. Ah. I have often imagined what a truly enlightened world would be like. Our time here has one ultimate objective—to worship and glorify God in order to be His witnesses, pointing men and women to faith in Jesus Christ (1Pe 1:17–19). I see the point here in not wanting to overwhelm people who know little or nothing about what’s going on, but anyone who is interested enough to even be on this forum most likely will have no problem accepting the existence of spirit guides. For instance, the Israeli Jews and Palestinian Muslims, whose narratives run counter to each other, would be able to see the shining souls in each other.

I’m looking forward to reading your blog on spirit guides. And the only way to create a society that is based in love and kindness will be for us to so transform the universal human mind that all humanity will be, like those earliest Christians, beautifully “of one heart and soul.”. The working power of Satan is lies (Joh 8:44), which manifests in unbelief and sins against God. If you get closer to your guide, be prepared to be completely baffled at first (in a sort of good way)!😃. Daniel and his friends showed us how to live a kingdom lifestyle in a lost world.

Scott, based on what appears to be common experience, our guides are probably already in contact with us and we’re just too busy to realize when it’s happening. The people of God are always pilgrims. The Kingdom was preached among a distinctly Jewish people living as an oppressed minority group within the Roman Empire. There is abundance in the Kingdom of God. Tolstoy used to say that the only time humans will live in an egalitarian, peaceful and just society is when they love each other. This earth is not our home; we are pilgrims just passing through this world (1Pe 2:11). We don’t always know how it works. They believed that the only way to solve an intractable problem is to first rise above that problem. To enter the Kingdom of God, we must surrender our will to God’s will and receive Jesus as our savior. Tune in to Roberta’s Podcast. A higher understanding, a transformed awareness, that moves beyond the kind of thinking that typifies the problem, is needed.

When Jesus stood before Pilate, He was accused of making Himself a king (Luk 23:2). So I feel that when we become beings of great love, gratitude, forgiveness and empathy this world will be utterly transformed.
