This title is a take off of Jesus’s statement of “The Kingdom is now, but not yet”
This message has been talked and preached about for last 70-80 years, but it has misguided in it’s interpretation. Without getting into why it was wrong or what was wrong, we will say that it is starting to be put in the right perspective in people and is being taught or preached to the right avenue. There are alot of people that are spreading the word of God in the right direction, but they are missing a key ingredient to make the storyline complete and actually the ingredient that will put the whole story together.
The beginning. The beginning of creation! Creation was and is what God wanted. It always was. This is the only thing He wanted. To be with His creation. If this aspect of the storyline is not started with in telling the rest of the story as to God is again bringing us back to the beginning of creation and setting us up in the Kingdom of God as like the Garden of Eden.
The page has been turned and the real story is being shared to us that God is working in the world to tell his story to all and for all to know and become apart of it. It will be a joyous day when it comes and Heaven will truly be again here on earth!!

With times of our society now in the United States we would think that the ‘Church’ would have a dominate universal message to All of it’s people stating what the whole world is facing in their lives
But I have doubts that that is what is happening.
I feel that, it is the same old message of what ever the season is, on what the message is this week. Why can’t the ‘Church’ see the world to use as the actual instrument of what God was pointing to as the crescendo of evil in the world by mankind to rise against it and seeing that God’s reign is there for a purpose. This should be on every ‘preacher’ in the pulpit in every church in the world, every week,every day til Christ comes back to claim His Bride!
Just to make things clear, this is not a U.S. problem, its a world issue. This is to be considered a universal problem of all christianity to realize, it needs to ‘see’ the dark battling the ‘light’. God’s light will shine everywhere, there will not be any darkness to be found! God is Sovereign. God is in control. His people,His kingdom and His Sovereignty will be reality!
God is Good.

I hate to do it, but I feel I must.
I have to steal a saying in our society that is very prevalent in the news,heck it is the news. What is worse, is that I must mix it with religion.
Yes, IS there FAKE NEWS IN CHURCH?
Yes I said it.
I want to come at this from two angles, there should’t be one angle,let alone two, which is sad.
The first one is ‘Do Pastors or clergy make up things,or points in their sermons to prove a point? What!? How could this be? Why, would a clergy do this? About what would he use ‘fake news’ to make a point?
Let’s go to the second angle, How would the ‘church’ know? This is so hard to tell which one of these is the worst, but I lean towards the second. (Maybe this is the reason ‘we’, the ‘church’ are where we are at now)
Does anyone every study the bible, let alone read it anymore? My observations have led me down the path that says reading is down, and studying is way down. Now, you should notice that if you correct the second, it will fix the first in time.
God’s people must know him in an intimate way as to not see when something is said or done that is not of God. That is our DNA to be of God and his word.
God’s people for to long have just taking their teaspoon of the ‘message’ on sunday morning and assumed it would get them bye, let alone they thought it might be wrong. God is holding us accountable to know his word and what it means. I challenge you today to know God’s word and hold it close to your heart to know that it is good, and not Fake News.

I have used this analogy before to show the subtlety of the old testament’s message, but I will use it again.
Have you seen the picture’s that if you look at them right at first you cannot see anything of value in the picture, this is the way we look at the old testament now, it is only for face value. The stories of the old testament are interesting and morally relevent but there is more to them than that at the first glance.
As with the picture on the wall that you cannot see anything without looking deep into the whole picture that you see a story that God has woven for us to see with an amazing message.
What is truly amazing with the old testament is that once you see the whole story that is being shown to us, you will now just be able to see it instead of the ‘face value’ aspect of the old testament. You will even start to see the pieces all fit together of all the things you have read or going to read in the OT.
Story lines in the newspapers are a ‘standard’ in the industry. So it is, in the bible. The old testament is the foundation of God’s message to us, until we ‘SEE” it, the ‘new’ will not make sense to us.
