Why man thinks the Kingdom of God is a battlefield?

12 11 2011

Last time I talked about what the Kingdom of Heaven is, and as I looked on the internet I found most images associated with the Kingdom of Heaven dealing with war. I was overcome with remorse because this is truer than I want to admit.

 

The devil wants us to think the Kingdom of Heaven is a battlefield where good and evil wrestle for dominance. Therefore He works in the hearts of man to bring so much turmoil that we agree with his premise.

 

How do you and I find the truth, we have to go to the bible, where we see it associate not with wars, but with feasting (Matt 8:11). In Matt 11.12 we see the kingdom of Heaven is forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it. In the Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible associates this forcefulness with spiritual striving, not war.

 

What is spiritual striving? It is seeking earnestly those things which are of value to God. This is something as much internal as it is external, so we must be willing to look within ourselves and our own actions as well as looking at the war which rages around us.

 

After the shock wore off about how many people see the Kingdom of Heaven, I began asking the Lord to forgive me and mankind for walking in step with the enemy rather than staying in step with God. The Kingdom of Heaven is more than an angelic place where good and evil wrestle, it is a place where we find peace and rest, both here and for eternity!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,
