We have sent astronauts into outer space, and have sent many, many satellites to orbit the earth. We have also sent exploratory probes that have travelled for years and thousands of miles through our galaxy.
However we have yet to make the discovery of the place called heaven, and the kingdoms of God and the Spirit. They must be…they have to be out there somewhere! Don’t they?
No astronaut has seen them. No telescope has spotted them. None of our fields of radio wave listening devices have heard anything that would reveal their source.
They are not to be found.
You can’t get there from here!
Jesus said something so startling that the people of his generation could not comprehend it. He said that the kingdom of heaven is within you. He spoke of an everlasting kingdom that would have no end! He said it would stand when all else was long gone and forgotten.
He also said that God was a spirit and must be worshiped in Spirit and in truth.
Kingdom of heaven, worship in Spirit and truth, evidence we cannot see. Truly not of this world.
We have trouble comprehending all this as well. We often fail to realize the reality of the new dimension that we believers have been born into. The heavenly realm of the Spirit. Joined to Christ, joined to his Spirit…not of this world.
We are now led by the Spirit, and walk in the Spirit, and are empowered by the Spirit.
The only way to get there is in Christ! You believe and receive!
Otherwise, you can’t get there from here!
Have you arrived?
