Daily Manna - Day by Day

Jesus told Pilate, “My Kingdom, is not of this world” (John 18:36). Things haven’t changed. It’s still not a part of this world. Jesus also said, “The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation” (Luke 17:20). It can’t be observed, because it doesn’t come forth, at least initially, on the natural realm. It’s not of this world. You might ask, “Well, won’t the Kingdom be established on earth?” The disciples asked Jesus a similar question after His resurrection, “Lord, wilt Thou at this time restore again the kingdom of Israel?” And He answered, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His own power.” There is a reason why the Lord doesn’t want our focus to be on the natural realm of the earth. We need to keep our attention on the thing at hand, what God wants to do right now. After Jesus told His disciples that it was not for them to know about an earthly kingdom, He added, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me….” What God was going to work in them was more important, and so it is now. His Kingdom must first be established in us. 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. Our focus must always be on the present, what God is doing now. If Satan can get your focus on the future, he can keep you separated from what God wants to do in your life now.  ...more
