Luke 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

I cannot take a photograph of the kingdom of God and show it to you. The only way you can see what it is like to be in the kingdom of God, is for you to be here yourself.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

You cannot enter the kingdom of God, except through spiritual rebirth.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus’ teachings did not persuade everyone who heard Him? Why did He deliberately veil His glory? On that day when the full glory of Jesus is revealed, every person will know the truth of His majesty, thus they will give Him the honour that is rightfully due to Him.

Philippians 2:9-11
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;
11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Before that day, we must have faith. By “faith” we do not mean “blindly gullible.” God has precisely calibrated this world so that each man and woman has a choice. When you stand at the judgment seat, you will have no excuse that you did not know any better.

When we see the full glory of God, it will be too late to make the choice. Faith will no longer be an option, since the choices will be erased by the glaring, undeniable light. The Holy Father wants His children to choose to love Him. Without that choice, there is no true love.

This world gives us the knowledge of good and evil. We can see the beauty and majesty of God’s creation. And we can see that paradise has been ruined by sin. Our loving Provider has made a new paradise where sin will not enter. We can choose life or death, blessing or cursing. Choose life.
