Many Will Miss the Kingdom Gate Because Their Thoughts Are Elsewhere

gatesI received this reminder from the Lord:

“There are still so many following the gospels of men, based on speculations and news journalists. While it is good to know and prepare, in so doing many, many have fallen by the wayside in their devotion and prayers and spending time with Me.”

“Then I send messengers to the people and they act as if it does not apply to them, but yet all the news and worldly things My people will follow like they are gods. They even add My name to it!”

“Be careful. I know My true servants whom I have sent. They do not always deliver a nice message of peace, or those things which people just LOVE to hear, but never take to heart. My servants speak of things to come, warning when danger is near, of righteousness and holiness, which are very lacking, and of correction.”

“Keep guard over your hearts. You should be preparing for your bridegroom to come, entering into the gates with thanksgiving and praise. Those who know Me should make themselves ready, for I come shortly and many will miss the Kingdom gate because their thoughts are elsewhere.”

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood and has not sworn deceitfully.
7 Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in!
8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. (Psalms 24:4, 7-8)

Please read Psalm 24 in its entirety as it is a beautiful Psalm to the King of Glory.

In His Service,
Bette Stevens

The body is a physical place that houses both holy and unholy spirits. Jesus cast demons (darkness) out of people. We are the house of the holy spirit (light). Unfortunately because of unbelief, religion, and humanism, we’ve allowed the world (darkness) into these human (earthly vessels). The light is in the darkness.
The tabernacle of Moses was a physical place. Outer court (flesh), inner court (soul), and the holy of holies (spirit). From a spiritual perspective that is how we are designed. Unfortunately, as long as our soul (mixture of light and darkness) and flesh are master we are out of alignment. The flesh has to be circumcised, and the soul (mixture) has to be brought under control. Our spirit (one with his spirit) must be master, our soul a bond servant to the master, or you could say crucified to self.
proper alignment
spirit-soul-body
out of alignment
soul-body-spirit
The flesh was corrupted in genesis 6, and had to be killed, thus Noah and the flood.
The soul is a reflection of the law, Moses to Jesus
Jesus is a reflection of the spirit
Jesus till now is a reflection of the church, soul in transition to spirit
The millenium is the spirit, kingdom of god in fullness, heaven on earth

I find it interesting that we think the kingdom of god is heaven. Can you imagine a people whom have the revelation that the kingdom of god, the holy of holy, heaven on earth, the garden, holy spirit, and Jesus through the holy spirit, is in your belly. Did you know God wants it out of your belly and moved into a permanent place, called your temple. Imagine the sacrifices we’ll have to make, to make that move. David had the priests do a bull sacrifice every 6′ to get it into Jerusalem. In Mathew 25 there are the 5 wise and the 5 foolish. Both are asleep waiting for the groom to show up. The wise have their extra oil (annointing), the foolish have to go back out and get more oil. Annointing takes time. You don’t just go get it. Is the church annointed? Don’t think so. The groom will show up to those whom know him. The foolish won’t recognize him. For he won’t be in an organization or your typical church. He’ll be in an overcomer, a remnant, a bride. Maybe we’ll actually have to have a relationship with this Jesus. Maybe we might have to do it his way. We might just have to get up early in the morning and see what he’s doing (dreams, visions), or do what he’s doing. We might really have to believe what he said, “I will never leave you or forsake you”. I know a lot of christians whom are waiting to be raptured out of hear when tribulation begins. We will need to know the Lord, and his voice in order to survive this next season. Otherwise it could mean death to you, and your family. If an angel, or the Lord comes to you in the… Read more »

Good word of reminder Bette and Linda. Don I’ve come to believe Kingdom of God is not a location but a state of being. Romans 14:17 “The kingdom of Heaven is righteousness ,peace and joy in the holy Spirit”
Paul demonstrated we carry Kingdom of God within us–even in midst of persecution he still had righteousnes peace and joy in Holy Spirit. as Kingdom of God is a state of being.

I’ve also come to realize “eternity is not a length of time but a relationship. John 17:3, “And this is eternal life that you may know the one true God and His son, Christ Jesus.

Thank you, Daniel and AMEN . . . Romans 14:7 (Kingdom of Heaven) and John 17:3 (relationship with Jesus).

As long as we are still living in our flesh and blood body we are still holding onto the promises of God by faith, but the day is coming when we will leave our bodies to enter into the realm of eternity where faith is no longer needed because we will see Him face to face. So even though we have entered the kingdom of God by faith, we have not yet received the full manifestation of what has been promised. We must stay on the path and endure to the end to receive our inheritance. Then we can enter the gates of God’s eternal kingdom. So we have the deposit now, which is the Holy Spirit living in us, but we do not yet have the full manifestation.

This article is a warning to many who are in danger of losing their inheritance and failing to enter into gates of heaven. It is a very real danger and not something to be dismissed or taken lightly, which is why we are instructed to work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

The gifts and callings of God are without repentance. Jesus said for all the father have given me are mine. No one can snatch them out of my hand. We are in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved, not of works, it’s a gift of God, lest any man boast!

No one else can take our salvation away from us, but at any time we can choose to turn away from God because He gave us a free will to make our own choices. This is why we have been instructed to choose whom we will serve (Joshua 24:15). The idea that we are somehow “locked in” to salvation regardless of our choices is contrary to many scriptures, which I have documented in this post: http://z3news.com/w/bible-studies/exposing-the-false-doctrine-of-once-saved-always-saved/

This Word also goes with the call for the Body of Christ to remove the idols in our life (that is anything we turn to before Jesus . . . or actually focus on more than Jesus). That also was a reminder to the Body of Christ the LORD had me write up in a recent blog post:

‘Many will miss the Kingdom gate because their thoughts are elsewhere’
Would you please clarify? Does that mean not go to heaven? What does that mean?
Not as a point of contention, just trying to understand.
Thanks

Dave,thanks for asking…My point in being is this”:::yes we like to watch the things like the stock markets,and know what s coming in prophesy,but the Lord is saying,if you get so caught up in all the world events ,and you don’t focus on Me and really have a deep relationship with Me,then yes,you or anyone could miss the Kingdom……This is satans strategy is to get people so focused on the deceptions and what is going on around the world that we miss what God is saying and we are not ready………

With respect, Bette, it is possible that you did not answer the question Dave may have been asking. It seemed to me that you simply said the same thing a second time. So let me be more blunt: As you see it, or as God has revealed it to you – does “missing the Kingdom gate” mean (1) going to hell instead of heaven?; (2) going to some “lower” level of heaven, where one is in heaven but sees God rarely?; (3) not having the kingdom of God inside you as described in scripture? – meaning not being able to act in the Spirit for miracles, healing, etc.?; (4) not living in the New Jerusalem on Earth for the millennial reign?; (5) something else? I would really like to understand what you are saying here. Thanks!

Pharisse’ seek a sign – His children only need know He is LORD OF ALL. HE alone has the power to heal, deliver and restore all who will,cry out to Him. Thank you Bette. We must continue to speak His truth. Remaining silent is not an option for the children of God.
