Kingdom of Heaven

Body
Do you think that more and more people are getting confused about our Creator? Are we claiming victory in Jesus without doing what He said? The instructions He gave us are to get us away from our self as man to Him. We are supposed to be like God. Not with our selfrighteousness but His righteousness. Let’s don’t try to speak things into existence with our own words. This could be witchcraft. Wait upon the Lord. Do what is commanded of us and expect nothing. Just say we are an unprofitable servant. We are just doing what we are told. Everything we are asking of Him requires faith. Luke 17:5-9 And the apostles said unto the LORD, Increase our faith. And the LORD said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. Let’s remember to look at faith as part of having victory in Jesus. After all, He said it is impossible to please God without faith. Let’s do what Jesus said to do and expect nothing
