Kingdom of God or Religion part 2

The last time we talked about Jesus being a King and that He is a King of a Kingdom. That was the message he came to bring to the world. However we have turned his message into a religion that we call Christianity. Many people have misinterpreted the bible's message about a relationship that Jesus paid for us to have with God into some form of religion. We have many different kinds of religions in the world, all with the same premise of us trying to be good enough to get to God. God wanted and accomplished getting mankind to come through faith, by sending his Word and wrapping it in flesh and calling him Jesus the Messiah, or Jesus Christ. Religion tells us that we need to keep a set of rules or rituals to please God. God's standard is perfection! Religion or religious rituals sooth our conscious in some ways. Some people say that Christianity (as a religion) is the right religion to get to God. Religion will never give you the peace that Jesus came to bring to the world. Religion will never give you the assurance that God is pleased and that you will spend eternity with him. They give the promise that if you keep a set of rules or do a set of rituals that you will be with God, that's not the truth! Jesus is the way, and the truth and the life that we all are seeking. Jesus never claim to start a religion that people should follow. Jesus is not a religious leader, He is a King! In America we have hundreds of different denominations / groups / that teach different things that will get us to heaven. they even have their own rules and rituals that you must do in order to be a part of their church / denomination. Then we have our own religions, I don't want to throw stones so I won't name them. Religion will not get you closer to God, only the Lord Jesus can do that for whosoever will call out to Him. Only He can show you the way back to God. God sent you here, and has a plan for you to carry out. In our next blog I will show you how the 66 books of the bible came into being and how they all point to a King that came and a King that is coming! are you ready??
