The Good News I have received, and now begin to spread, is the result of the spiritual understanding and spiritual maturity gained from Seeking First the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33). The Good News itself is the information on how to participate in your own salvation (as a co-laborer with The Father in Heaven); thereby, beginning the process of becoming what you were created to be, for and in The Kingdom of Heaven. The Good News also includes the thought process needed to understand your life, the lives of those around you, as well as how it all fits into the overall purpose of The Father in Heaven for His plan for Man on Earth. While the information within the Introduction to The Master’s Degree reflects what was gained from my transition of being led from out of the World and into Discipleship, the Good News of The Kingdom of Heaven reflects my transition from being led out of Purgatory and into The Kingdom of Heaven.
Purgatory is the housing location for Discipleship, serving as the gap between the World and The Kingdom of Heaven. While the word purgatory may conjur up negative images and thoughts, it is actually a very positive word. The word purgatory is built using the root word purge, the preposition at and the suffix –ory. The definition of the word purge is: to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable…the suffix -ory means: place for, serves for. Therefore, while the dictionary definition of purgatory means an intermediate state after death for expiatory purification; a place or state of punishment, from The Kingdom of Heaven perspective, purgatory is a place of learning, where, by counting it all joy (James 1:2-3), positivity and patience is built to understand how to view life, the World (and those in it) and the value it all has to and for The Kingdom of Heaven.
Seeking First The Kingdom required presenting my life a Living Sacrifice. In doing so, my sacrifice resulted in my spiritual ‘death’ to and in the World. As a result, the impurities of being in the World require purging in order to become purified to enter The Kingdom of Heaven. During this purging moment of time, I was able to spiritually see and hear what The Father in Heaven was showing and saying to me. By redirecting my focus, away from the World and those within it, to keeping my mind stayed on Him (Isaiah 26:3), I received revelation and insight regarding The Father in Heaven, His plan for us on Earth, and how we are to go about aligning with His Will to become who we were created to be…what I received was The Good News, and this blog will be a place (sharing face-to-face with those who are led across my physcial path, and any other avenue I am led to) that I will share what I have received.
I will share why purgatory was necessary; I will share how moments in my life, filtered through Kingdom Seeking understanding, led to my current understanding and how such efforts are transferrable; I will share how to activate that which was placed inside you before you were born; I will relate how the activities in Heaven (BEFORE Earth) translate not only to the activities of the World, but also how they assist in moving towards The Kingdom of Heaven; I will share how the thought process is built to sustain itself and continually grow for entry into and eternal growth within The Kingdom of Heaven. What I have received, I will share, and I look forward to the value it has on/in each and every person.
While I have merely skimmed the surface of a very deep, yet comprehendable subject matter, I will provide greater articulation for each topic introduced here. Feel free to leave a comment and/or ask questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
