The Second Coming of Christ is Inside of ManSubmitted by No.7 on Sun, 03/31/2013 - 22:09
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.Luke 17:20-21
In the spirit of Easter many nice Christian people tell others things like "Christ will come again" or "I can't wait until Jesus comes back". I just want to clear one thing up, Jesus told us he was coming back inside us. That's how I interpret it anyways, that Christ will rise again as the Holy Spirit inside of man.
I was drawn towards the liberty movement mainly because it has become impossible to ignore the Governments encroachments on our liberties. I am fueled by the notion that so many of my ancestors fought and died for the liberties that our Government is trampling upon. I thought this was the most worthy cause because of the history, but in the process I forgot the tragic history of early Christians.
Not only did Christ die for our sins, but all of the disciples and thousands of other Christians and other religious activists have been slaughtered for their religious beliefs. So, in the same way I am moved to spread the message of liberty I should also be moved even greater to spread the message of Christ and spirituality.
The rise of Christianity and the accuracy of the Gospels is truly an amazing accomplishment given the extreme persecution of Christians in early Christian history. Seeing that this religion rose above thousands of others into a world power and that thousands of people were willing to die just to believe in Christ, it seems that Christianity is a valid and special religion. In the same way, I believe America is a special country because America was the first and perhaps the only country established "under God" where People "assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them". Our country was founded under the guidance of God and our founders (like the early Christians) accomplished the impossible when they defeated the British and established the United States of America.
I think Jesus wanted us to find God inside ourselves and share our thoughts and prayers with others. In John, Jesus goes in the temple angry at those doing business in the house of God.
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
In my opinion this means that our body is our temple, and it's up to us bring Christ back to the Earth. Several ancient Christian sects taught that Jesus was a man who became God rather than the traditional thought that Jesus was God who became a man. Since Jesus told us himself that the kingdom of God is within man, we must rise to our destinies in protecting our life, liberty, and country from those who wish to take inalienable God given Rights.
God Bless Each and Every One of You, Happy Easter
