We desperately need heavenly politics

Forget Trump and Hillary–America desperately needs the living, resurrected Jesus. Here’s my paraphrase of Jesus’ words in Matthew 3:2:

“Line up your attitude, thoughts, words, and actions with God and His will (rather than with your feelings, desires, compulsions, and traditions) for His kingdom (His government and authority) is here, offering an alternative so that we can go beyond human leadership, anger, pride, panic, prejudice, violence, fear, crookedness, bullying, and hate.”
(“Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” –Matthew 3:3, NKJ)

Vote for Jesus! Make Him Lord (absolute Master) of your life. Follow and obey Him 24/7/365. Keep His presence, passion, and fire burning in the center of your heart! Demonstrate and proclaim His power, presence, and love, everywhere you go.

Heavenly politics? When we come together in Jesus’ name, deny self by laying down our plans, opinions, and agendas, and let Him personally lead and direct the meeting; we enter into the government and control of God rather than the government and control of man. This is a manifestation of heavenly politics — the kingdom of God — the will of God being done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Have you ever been to a Jesus city council meeting? (America desperately needs Jesus’ city council!) Amazing things happen when Jesus’ city council (ekklesia) meets together! (In the Greek New Testament Jesus said: “I will build My ekklesia.” Ekklesia is the name of the city council in ancient Greek city-states.) The “gates of Hell” cannot prevail against Jesus’ city council. Learn more about ekklesia here.

Jesus is Lord

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
