The message of the Kingdom of God was the central message of Jesus’ teaching during his three-year ministry. The Book of Acts: Is the Story of what happens after the resurrection. The church is birthed. Jesus leaves to go to the Father and the Holy Spirit comes. The church age has begun, from now on the main world changing tool God will use will be the Ekklesia (church) the called out ones. This is the way the Kingdom of God advances today.
We know him as "Doubting Thomas" because of his reaction to the first reports brought to him about Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Sometimes it’s our own failure that makes us begin to doubt. Thomas had run away when it counted most. I love the fact that the door to the place where the disciples were was locked- but Jesus makes a way through locked doors that you thought no one could get through. We have all the information we need but our faith has not been activated.
People that finally come to a place of Genuine Change have to wrestle through several barriers. Stop hiding behind religious tradition or excuses for delay, the time for change is now. If you hear God’s voice today do not harden your heart. Come to the living water and stop trying to satisfy your thirst with temporary substitutes.
