Christ the King, Christ the Kingdom: A study on perfection and righteousness that can only come from above

The repeating verse 3:31
The repetitive wake up call

When the Lord keeps on waking me up at an exact time, one can guarantee He is sending me a message
My apostolic mentor in Heaven is John the Apostle. I have met him a few times. In fact my beloved and I were swept up one day to a feast in Heaven where he sat at my right side. There were other participants there too. However this is not about him or the others today. It’s about the verse that is relevant.

John 3:31
He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.

This is a fascinating verse as it speaks of John the Baptist attempting to tell his followers that the arrival of the Messiah heralds his own exit as he too will become a follower. But what is amazing is the fact that he refers to Jesus as being an extraterrestrial. From above From Heaven. Something no Jew would be able to believe as all felt He would come as a terrestrial King.

Jesus was to to repeat this to Pilate

John 18:36-37
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?”
Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

When praying for His disciples
John 17:16-17
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

Luke 17:20-21
The Coming of the Kingdom
Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Colossians 1:27-28
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Christ is the Kingdom
Boom

In Him in Us never will He forsake us

Hebrews 13:5
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

He is pure, Holy, complete and perfect. Imagine Him finding His home in you and you in Him

Two sacrifices in the Jewish faith He represents.
Atoning for our sins and
Making us righteous afterwards

Mind boggling.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

No wonder He can never leave us if the Kingdom of God, Jesus, is within us and we are within His Name, made righteous by Him. Once reborn, He will never leave us.
The importance of rebirth in Him is therefore fundamental to be a vessel carrying Him

The unveiling of us as sons and daughters by default reveals His light to all.
What God opens no man can shut
The Sons are thus revealed in kingship and through their faith. He only requires us to believe and all will follow.

Remember He cannot look at us the way we think
Habakkuk 1:13
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,
and canst not look on iniquity:
wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,
and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
He sees us as perfect.
When we enter the Holy of Holies we cannot see imperfections on ourselves ( quote from my earthly mentor, Dr O).
Boom!
