40 Days to Change Your Mind

Since Passover 2018 we have been making the journey towards Pentecost each and every Saturday in worship. The children of Israel were invited to make a 40 day journey to a land that "flowed with milk and honey" yet they could not seem to wrap their minds around such a phenomenal change of life. YHWH was fully expecting them to make the transition in a hurry so that their old mindset would not contaminate their new environment. Instead, Israel turned a 40 day journey into a 40 year saga.
Similarly in the New Testament following the same time frame from the death of Christ until Pentecost, Jesus challenged the disciples to change their minds in 40 days.
Acts 1:1-3 makes this very clear. Jesus spends these crucial days speaking to them concerning the most difficult part of the transition; thinking kingdom.
Jesus doesn't focus on subjects like prayer, giving, fasting, casting out devils or even the healing the sick, He focuses on the kingdom. Not that the other subjects are not noteworthy or necessary. However, any of those other subjects without the understanding of the kingdom will simply produce another religious pious posture and not success in the advancement of the kingdom.
Throughout the ministry of Jesus as recorded in the gospels, He only uses the word "church" or ekklesia in the Greek 3 times. Conversely, He uses the phrase kingdom of heaven or kingdom of G-d more than 125 times. What does that tell us? Jesus' focus was the kingdom of G-d of which He is the King of kings. This means that the modern Christian experience is focused on the wrong thing. It is paramount in this hour to shift our focus from the church to the kingdom!
Here's the mantra that I have adopted some years ago: I am the church! I am a member of the body of Christ. I am a facilitator of the kingdom of G-d on earth.
Let's follow the ministry of Christ and promote the kingdom and stop promoting  ourselves (the church)!

I have nothing against any religion, I respect the difference of each and everyone. There are chances in life for us to meet others and share their beliefs. We don't have to disrespect or discriminate them. We all have on our beliefs and we just have to listen to them or ignore them in a very nice way. I hope that even if we have different religion, different beliefs and different Deity, we can still unite as one. We are living in one world and we our own laws where we have equality.

I admire your passion for following the ministry of Christ. It is indeed true that people nowadays tend to worship themselves above all others. You can see a great example of this in social media. A lot of people are always trying to boost their ego by posting photos about how well they are doing, or how great they are compared to others. We should always keep in mind that God will always be above all and that’s the reason why we should always stay humble.
