“9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God.” 1 Cor. 6:9-10
When the believing sinner is Born Again, when we are created a new creature IN Jesus Christ, we take on the moral characteristics of the Kingdom of God. Old things pass away and all things become new because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our heart.
Our sin nature which ruled and reigned our heart is isolated by the power of the Holy Spirit because our faith was placed in the Cross of Christ. The Grace of God flows uninterrupted as long as our faith remains in Jesus Christ and Him crucified for ALL that we receive from God.
For some, they have been told the their sin is acceptable in the Kingdom of God. They have been told that their drinking, their homosexuality, their living with their boyfriend/girlfriend is perfectly fine but this is simply not so. These things are not the moral characteristics of the Kingdom of God but of the world and it’s system. Don’t be deceived.
The Spirit of God will draw whosoever wills to believe upon the Cross of Christ closer to holiness and righteousness if that is what they seek. You will know them by their fruit.
“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
Seek Him and you will find Him. Choose this day to deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Him. Forsake the religious traditions and vain philosophies and be determined to know nothing else among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Souls are at stake. Because you go under the banner of Christianity, the world has it’s eyes on you. Are you representing the morality of the Kingdom of God or bringing reproach?
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
