"Kingdom of God" or Religious Restoration?


During my Christian career I attended a Pentecostal church, Assembly of God church, Evangelical, (non denominational) church, Reformed Christian church and Full Gospel Baptist church. I have been to several synagogues as well.

Years ago I attended a black church a couple of times in Rochester, NY with a friend and his family. I remember the black church experience with vivid detail. While sitting with my friend and his family a rather large, black woman caught "The Holy Ghost"

I thought she was having a seizure. She was dancing chaotically, hands raised screaming eventually falling down  rolling around on the floor! She knocked over several wooden pews injuring an elderly couple (taken away in an ambulance)

The "Black Church" to this 9 or10 year old kid, (Me) was "Crazy!"
I wrote in my book, UnColoring Race, "The black churches always seemed angry to me."

My friend Samone explains

The Miracle of Israel is a simple one really...The Kingdom of God is being restored

The one thing that every church/synagogue of my experience has in common are people. For centuries people gather to learn. Whether traditionally or curiously people are drawn to believe in God or the gods. [I will come back to this in a moment]

Since the time of Nimrod and the tower of Babel and according to the scriptures, God scattered the people. Long before Jew or Gentile. Differing languages are introduced to the cities and the people as a result of Nimrod building a tower, creating his own kingdom. He was a "Mighty" hunter or warrior.
Strongs Exhaustive Concordance offers the word -gibbor- meaning, powerful; by implication, warrior, tyrant. In Arabic similarly: one who magnifies himself, behaves proudly, a tyrant, who is bold, audacious. According to some of the material I have studied through various teachers, rabbis, pastors etc, Nimrod enslaved people or hunted people for the purpose of slavery. All of these characteristics oppose why God created Life.......Moses was a deliverer from the religion that enslaves

Nevertheless, kingdoms are brought forth, nations are born. Jewish tradition amplifies 70 nations born after the flood, Click Here....Equally, the book of 2 Chronicles confirms 70 bulls to be sacrificed representing 70 nations.

2 Chronicles 29:32 The number of the burnt offerings which the assembly brought was seventy bulls, one hundred rams, and two hundred lambs: all these were for a burnt offering to Yahweh.

So we have kingdoms and people gathering, hold this thought for a moment

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any animal of the field which Yahweh God had made. He said to the woman, "Has God really said, 'You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?'"

Adam and Eve were gathered together listening to the the serpent, "Interpret" what God commanded. Not only is he interpreting God but he acknowledges God. Both Adam and Eve (based on the simple text, did eat!)

Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die."

Good (ṭō·wḇ) beautiful, best, better, bountiful, cheerful, at ease, fair word, be in favor,
Evil  (wā·rā)  adversity, affliction, bad, calamity, displeasure, distress

However we look at what occurs here the three beings move away from what God has said, ordained, or commanded.
Ordain (diatassó, Greek) to arrange thoroughly, i.e. to charge, appoint

In the beginning God ordained rules to govern what he was bringing forward. He commanded that which is to be and it was. The light shined, the water roared, the heavens presented the "Glory of God" while even the dirt responded. Their was no religious order to what he was doing.  He went on to offer Adam a land agreement. Adam broke the agreement. Interestingly enough and from the simple text, a third being encouraged him to do so using the very thing God commanded both to not eat of.

To summarize: God purposed people to live within his precepts granting to the first two people the ability to bring forth a family, which would produce cities, nations/kingdoms, in the promotion of  life. Mankind, through Adam and Eve chose to go their own way embracing good and evil. This interpretation produced death. A continuation of opposition if you will....Day and Night, Man and Women, Water and Dry Land, Heaven and Earth, Life and Death [Interesting to consider huh?]

Consider: Virtually every religious system known throughout humanity has asserted itself by bringing together people either willfully, forcefully [under threat of death], manipulation, murder and most importantly  interpretation. None do so having never broken the commandments of God, not one. Today's "Waxed Cold" societies all oppose God's order: Thou shall not commit adultery, men shall not lay with men etc, etc, etc! God does not have 36,000 churches or synagogues within his kingdom....Judaism has become a fluid conversation concerning Talmudic writings
God has the land of the Garden, or Mount Moriah/Olives, Jerusalem, and a plan.

Nevertheless Zechariah 8:23 is not a misprint!
I would suggest to you that God pronounced Kingdom edict or LAW when directing Adam prior to the creation of Eve. Adam, being in covenant, broke covenant which is what the Satan was hoping to accomplish. We see this very same attempt when reading the account of Jesus (Yeshua) in the wilderness. Again, Satan used food while Jesus quoted Kingdom Law remaining in covenant. He did not argue religious theology or entertain debate. Similarly, thou shalt not Kill, Covet thy neighbors wife, etc, etc, etc. (These are not interpretive. Satan faced legal precedent in the order of how God governs. Thus his debate never realized during this discourse. The Satan is over rated in comparison to the hearts of men....Ya think?

"And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'"…Matthew Chapter 4

The issue has never been about racial or gender identity, religious authority or theological dissection. God is establishing parameters that support...LIFE. Knowing that a new Heaven and a New earth were part of the process even before men fell becoming "Hunters" of one another.
Love thy neighbor, take care of the widows, the poor, the orphan insure life! These precepts guide people back towards the plan......Life has one thing in common...people! So too does death!

My show in development, The Jeff Morton Report will be about the restoration of men and women to what God is doing. As a result, what are YOU doing to advance the Kingdom. I hope to avoid gathering people for religious discussion or theological debate! What God is doing has not been revamped, recycled, restructured, or amended. My hope is to encourage a paradigm shift from religiosity to Kingdom preparation.
If we all did what God commanded the debate would not govern our individual positions I would suggest that our individual positions would be supported by liberty
The Bible speaks often about "Thy Kingdom Come" It never speaks about "They Religion Restored!"

James 1:25 But everyone who gazes into The Perfect Law of Liberty and continues in it, he is not a hearer who heard what is forgotten, but is a doer of the works, and this one shall be blessed in his work.

Now about what we are doing to share, teach, and consider the Kingdom of Messiah in this earth.
