Recognizing Jesus Christ’s Kings

By Carl Marshall

The two responsibilities that we are given in this world are to enrich the life of our body, and spirit. Our body‘s desire may not be that of our spirit, which at that time, we may have already given privilege to the evil one, who uses such opportunity to interfere with the life we lead. In the beginning Adam and Eve had only one temptation, and that was a fruit tree in the garden of Eden, but today, we are overwhelmed with temptation. The price for sin is death, but Jesus Christ has paid that price, and has given us our day of independence. As babes we are not able to choose whether or not to be born, but being born of the spirit is our choice. Observe the foundation of Christian living (we must believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, Second is to have faith, and third, we carry our cross, but must follow only the Son of God) our needs are met by faith but not all our needs are known by us. God knows all our needs and so he told us to baptise because there is a need for it.

If we are baptised by water and the Holy Spirit, we will experience the Kingdom of God but is God’s Kingdom separate from the church? God’s Kingdom is certainly not separate from the church, since that it is in us; it gives us power to stand against “principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). Notice the uniqueness of the church, it is the foundation of Christian living, which is our responsibility but the Kingdom of God is authorized by Jesus Christ. Nicodemus asked the question, “can a man enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered him by saying “that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the spirit is spirit” (John 3:6), which is to say the birth of the flesh is distinct from that of the spirit. Thus, the two phase natures of baptism fulfill God’s promise to us that he would put within us a new heart and a new spirit (Ezekiel 36:26). Being born of water prepare us for such promise.

So then we see that being born and being born-again is separate, though we are innocent at the beginning of each life; a child is innocent, and so are we when we have received a new heart and spirit. The growth of a child depends on their leader, but so many have been led into the darkness of this world. Anyone that experiences the Kingdom of God is truly baptized, and unlike the children that are led into the darkness of this world, we are led to do the will of God. In this world, the will of God and the darkness of it is manifest spiritually. Therefore, the nature of sin still remains in our body, and it affects our souls but if we live according to the will of God then both soul and body will be in good health. The life after baptism is without boundaries and as the body becomes familiar with its new heart and spirit, our burdens are nailed to our cross as we live faithfully in Christ. Fighting the good fight of faith will lighten our burden as this is the way of Jesus, our Christ.

The law for the Kingdom of God must be known prior to being born-again, because such a life is not given a second chance (Hebrew 9:27). In the Old Testament, Moses laws were the guidelines, but today, Jesus Christ is the law.

Therefore, all things, whatever you would that someone should do to you, do you even so to them, for this is the law and the prophets (Matthew 7:12).

In other words note the things that you would do, and not the things that others do to you. Such a philosophy is for the children of God to love each other with the love of Jesus Christ. Realize the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) that it is the nature of Christian living. There cannot be any laws against it but neither are there any laws against witchcraft. In Matthew 7:15-20, Jesus zoomed us in on false prophets and the fruit they bear. He describes their fruit as grapes of thorns or figs of a thistle. False prophets will note the things that others do to them and retaliate in a suchlike manner, usually sorcery because laws are not set against it.

All the kings in Christ lives the life, Salvation. Salvation is strengthened by the testing of our faith. Observe that which Jesus said, “I will build my church” with the life, salvation and Paul said, “we are the buildings,” which occurs only by faith. Realize that it is communion with Jesus Christ that make us the church. Peter who stood steadfast in his faith is the foundation of it. It is through Jesus Christ that we are made one with his twelve apostles.
