492 KINGDOM OF CITIZENS.

 1 Kings 10:4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built,

1 Kings 10:5 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.

1 Kings 10:6 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.

1 Kings 10:7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.

1 Kings 10:8 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.

A Kingdom is represented by its citizenry.

Every kingdom has a ruler, rules, and an accepted conduct. Every citizen of that kingdom will show his citizenry by his adherence to its conduct.

Even the smallest details tell people where you are from and to whom you submit.

Those citizens, which do not adhere to the accepted conduct of their Nation, are showing everyone else that they do not want to be a citizen of that nation.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 What a person says does not necessarily define his citizenry. His whole life can be observed and used to understand which nation he wishes to belong.

Australians sound like British subjects but have rejected their heritage and Queen.

Acadians sound like French citizens but most have never set foot in Europe.

Many people claim Christianity but reject Christ, His words, and His conduct.

Faithful citizens of any nation will be the most trusted and dedicated for the wellbeing of their nation. They will not be angry at their rulers, dissatisfied with their citizenry, nor spiteful to their fellow countrymen.

Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

If any nation is to survive, its citizens must unit and care for one another or it will not stand.

Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

All of a nations citizens must have the same mind, obey the same rules, support each other in (if not love, at least) deep concern for the other’s welfare.

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Of course, I am writing this to the Christian church but the principals apply to any nation or peoples.

America – if you do not unit together and agree, you will cease to be a nation.

Canada – if you do not become Canadians, we will not be united when trouble comes to our door.

Christians – if you do not subject yourself to Jesus and His commandments, you will not be a part of His heavenly kingdom.

Trouble comes from within because we do not see, nor care, for our brothers and sisters in ________________ (insert your country, group, gender, race, nationality, organization here.)

It is God’s principal that in order to stand, the CITIZENS must unit!

A strong nation is not made up of backbiters, complainers, or selfish angry show-offs. (In other words, there is no example of a strong nation in the world today.)

Trouble is coming from within our borders because we ignore our neighbours and don’t know our citizens. Everyone is screaming for their rights without knowing that their rights are directly connected to their giving those around them the respect, which they themselves want.

We are a people of ‘me first’ and ‘to hell’ with everyone else.

AND, now to the church; most people who call themselves ‘Christian’ are not. The Bible is clear on this point.

John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

1 Samuel 12:14 If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:

1 Samuel 12:15 But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers.

  John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

You will know the Christian nation by its love, peace, joy, faithfulness, humility, service to its master, Jesus Christ, etc.; in other words by its fruit.

Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

(I’m sorry, but I must say something about what I heard in the Canadian news this week.

I am glad that the Anglican church is called the Anglican church because there are no Christians there who can support their acceptance of a queer relationship in their midst and not reject that lifestyle.

To spit in God’s face and call it ‘love’ simply means they love each other and their sexual preference more than they care for a benevolent and merciful creator.

God will give them their place with those who hate Him, when their time comes.

AND, this will probably be the only warning they will get from me.)

THE Christian nation will love God first, His son, and each other by obeying God’s every word, doing the acts of Jesus and caring, sacrificially, for each other. Then, we will extend our hand of friendship to those other wicked people, in the hope that they will come to learn the truth; while we be careful NOT to be caught up in their wickedness.

 Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

The wicked will have no place of prominence in or authority over, the Christian nation church. It’s citizens will be faithful to our Christ, to the death.
