Jesus declares in Matthew 18:…
.
3) “TRULY I TELL YOU, UNLESS YOU CHANGE, AND BECOME LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN, YOU WILL NEVER ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!” [NIV]
_______________
.
THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM
.
.
If you will… imagine the spirit and the mindset of an innocent child, and the spirit and the mindset of God, as if listening to the TUMBLERS drop, within an old-style mechanical safe (wherein, money and other valuables are stored!)!
.
Before the arrival of DIGITAL SAFES there were MECHANICAL SAFES (ANALOGUE SAFES!… if you will) that “safecrackers” attempted to open, through the careful audio detection of the movement of TUMBLERS within them, that… WHEN PROPERLY POSITIONED WHEN TURNING/ MOVING THE SAFE’S “COMBINATION MECHANISM (like that, of the lock, for a student’s school locker!)”!… would release the “locking mechanism” of the safe’s door; and thereby, avail access to the contents of the safe!
.
Simply said… God has said (metaphorically speaking!… i.e., using my analogy here!), that we SHALL NOT ENTER INTO HIS KINGDOM, unless we, CAREFULLY LISTEN TO THE “SPIRITUAL TUMBLERS” OF HIS KINGDOM’S DOOR MOVE!… IN EXACTLY THE ORDER IN WHICH THE TUMBLERS ARE TO BE ALIGNED!… so that we may “UNLOCK” THE “SPIRITUAL MECHANISM” THAT SAFEGUARDS/ LOCKS THE KINGDOM’S DOOR! For!… unless we hear EXACTLY WHERE, AND HOW THESE “SPIRITUAL TUMBLERS” ARE SITUATED WITHIN THE “SPIRITUAL MECHANISM” OF THE KINGDOM’S DOOR, WE WILL NOT BE GIVEN ACCESS TO THE “CONTENTS OF THE KINGDOM”!… AS WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO “OPEN THE KINGDOM’S SPIRITUAL DOOR”! But, what we’re to be “LISTENING” for, aren’t “MECHNICAL TUMBLERS”, but rather, THE AGAPE LOVE WITHIN GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT! And it’s that AGAPE LOVE, THAT/ WHICH IS THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM!… AND WITHOUT WHICH, WE WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS!

Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
