His Rest is a place, His kingdom is a place too. His Rest is The Secret Place where Jesus reigns. The Rest is the kingdom where the rested entered by Faith in Jesus’ NAME. This Rest, which is the Kingdom is our Goshen- it is ‘the safe place’. The Rest is our Canaan, the place of abundance and peace. Shalom reigns in the Kingdom- the peace that surpasses human understanding.
Jesus spent most of His ministry days introducing this place, the Kingdom of God. All the parables and stories that He ever told was to illustrate how things work in that place, the Kingdom which is His Rest and which also represents His secret place.
The kingdom, the Rest of God has come and we lay hold of it by faith in Jesus’ Name.
There is no heavy burden in the Kingdom. The rested are not burdened by the same burdens that burden the unrested.
“Do not be equally yoked together with the unbeliever” the Bible recommends. We have an easy yoke, and that yoke is to just believe. In the Kingdom, the rested just rest in the Secret Place of the Most High, in the place where Immanuel remains with them forever!
Only the rested can live in Eden, the land of utopia because only the rested see it. The Kingdom is Eden, Canaan, and Goshen, the Old Testament pictures of that which was to come, that which has come. “The Kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is’, or There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”- Luke 17: 21 (NIV). It is just a function of seeing it. So how do we see it?
“In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see The Kingdom of God unless He is born again”- John 3: 3 (NIV). Mutant John, also said in the 12th and 13th verse of the first chapter of the Gospel he wrote as inspired by the Holy spirit, that for as many as they are that Received Him( Jesus) that believed in His Name, He ( the Father), gave the right to become children of God. Children born, not of the will of man but children born of God (The SPIRIT). It is a genetic thing. In John 3, Jesus told Nicodemus that that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit, is Spirit. In other words, a child of a goat is a goat, and the child of God is a God. It is a genetic thing. Therefore if I were to translate John 3: 3 I’d translate it thus : In reply Jesus declared, “ I tell you the truth, no one can see The Kingdom( the Rest, the Secret place, The Eden, the Canaan, The Goshen) of God unless He is a mutant ( genetically changed by the Spirit of God), God’s own Gene.
The kingdom is God’s family. The members of this family are the Jesus clones because they were created and predestined to be like Him. Paul wrote to mutants in Rome and said…for those who God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers, and those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified –Romans 8: 28-30 (NIV).
Kingdom people are LIGHTS because The Kingdom is that of LIGHT…. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us to The Kingdom of the Son He loves. Colossians 1: 13
In the kingdom we the mutants are not wrestling but resting.
In the Kingdom, mutants are brides and Jesus is the Groom. Therefore they obtain their demands in the Name of The Groom because they have received the Name of Jesus, the Groom. Their demands are as powerful as His. The Name of Jesus is a mutant License because His Name is LEGAL! – Even King David who was no mutant knew that. Yesterday, He demanded Goliath’s head from him in the name of God. Today, the Name is more excellent and more specific, Jesus! EVERYDAY JESUS RULES IN THE KINGDOM!
