Luke 17:20-21 and when he was demanded of the Pharisees when the kingdom of God should come , he answered them and said, the kingdom of God
cometh not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo here or Lo there; for behold the kingdom of God is within you.
Jesus spoke those powerful words 2000 years ago and yet the Christian world has been lead to believe you have to wait until you die in order for one to enter in the kingdom of God( this is a big lie) My dear friends, if you don’t find God on this side of life it is impossible for you to find God on the other side of life that is to say life after death.
What was Jesus referring to when he said in Luke 20:21.
The kingdom of God is within you” let me make a long story short: The very life we are living is God’s life. For God breathed the breath of life in man and then he became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 that’s why the very life we are living is God’s life, it is divine life because it came directly from God and that life can only be lived in Joy and Peace, when it is lived in the here and now . To live this life any other way is living in hell. But sleeping humanity- unconscious mankind has been lead to believe that our lives belong to us and we only give this this life to God when we die.
Furthermore, we believe that our ego ( I, ME and My ) is who we are and 24/7 we are devoting all of our life energy thinking about our past and what should have been and then this ego throws us into the endless possibilities of our future and again our consciousness is thrown from the past to the future back to the past again and again.
While true life and lasting peace and contentment escapes from us because we are allowing our consciousness to live in an illusionary mental world created by our ego,( I, Me and My) and in the course of 24 hours the consciousness a being who is asleep experiences so many different heavens and hells, he dies a thousand times and he fears anything that is a threat to his existence. However when you bring your consciousness in the here and now you have truly entered into the kingdom of God where there can only be Peace because the ego( I, ME, My) cannot exist in the here and now. The moment you allow I, ME or My in the here and now you have left the kingdom of God.
The here and now is literally a shelter from the storms of life and the cares of this world. The here and now or the present tense is where God resides he cannot live in our past because the past is dead, nor can God live in our future because the future does not exist, therefore God who is alive can only be alive in the present , the here and now. That’s why there is so much fulfillment in the here and now because only when we are in the present Can we be one with God in the here and now and only in the present does God reveal himself and his purpose, for you and everybody and every living thing . Each and every moment consciously lived in the here and now draws one closer to God and all of his divine virtues.
Laughter, Joy, Peace and contentment spontaneously erupts from deep within the here and now. When human consciousness is focused on the here and now it like a Swimmer that has taken a dive under water or Its like coming from the outside of life to the inside of life …its like taking a cool shower on a hot day.
