Whose Kingdom?

“Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25
As we look at the Kingdom of Heaven we understand that not all are part of the Kingdom of Heaven, there is another kingdom. It is not popular to talk about Satan, but Satan is very much active in the world today.
Today many people struggle to believe that there is a God, many more accept that there is a God but cannot accept that there is a Devil. Society plays loosely with the idea of demons and the devil. For them it is comic book ideas.
The problem becomes when we in the church also dismiss the idea of there being a spiritual world. The passage in Matthew 12 makes it very clear that there is two kingdom. As Christians we are part of God’s kingdom. We cannot be part of another kingdom.
Living in the world often feels as if we are in a different kingdom, certainly God’s kingdom does not completely reign in this world – though that will happen later. What we can know is that God will have the ultimate victory.
Whenever you consider the Spiritual world it is comforting to know that God is stronger, it might be a difficult time, but God is always the one who comes out on top.
Let us give Him the glory.
