There is the life in the Father’s Kingdom, and there is the life on the planet earth; and just like it is when we attend a parade here on the earth, we enjoy our time being at the parade as it is a part of our life on the earth. The earth is the earth, as it still has all of everything going on, good and bad, but while we are at the parade, it seems as though all is well for now. And I was doing some reading as I quite often do from the best selling book of all times by far, yes his truly, the life of the book, the Word. I come to find out that there is no parade in any where that can rival a parade in the Kingdom City: and I just read that the streets alone are made of pure gold: say no more, white flag, parade game over. And it is nice reading all about the here and the after, and of all of the great things that are to come for us who just love the Lord. I have also come to learn that the Father wants us in our place at the parade now, and that the place that he has for us is in progress now: we do not have to wait for heaven to come in order to be at a kingdom parade now. We fail short because we just conclude that we have to get out of earth first before we can get to the kingdom parade stuff later; and that is not true according to the book: Luke 18:28-30, “Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.” If you are going to do whatever it takes to do for the Father, then the Father wants to give you your roses while you yet live. lol. I’m sorry, there I go again: I just couldn’t let that phrase pass me by, give me my roses while I yet live on the earth Father, please. Oh, we don’t have to say please like that, but I wanted to show my humility to the world that I have when it comes to speaking with the Father. He’s my best friend, and sometimes I make sure to say things so that the world knows that I don’t have that friendship twisted.
And listen, I know that it’s insulting to explain to you how to enjoy being at a parade on the earth since we do it so successfully over and over again. And I apologize in advance for that because I am not trying to insult anyone’s parade abilities. However, it’s not what you do at the parade that I want to remind you of, but it’s what you do before you get to the parade that are the things that allow you to enjoy it once you are there. The things that you do before you go enjoy the parade on the earth, are the same things that you must do if you are going to enjoy a parade from the kingdom already in progress while you yet live on the earth. Plus, Peter says those things for us in Luke 18:28-30, for he knows from experiencing doing those things here on earth for himself; and better yet he received confirmation directly from his truly, the living Word himself while the living Word was still living in the flesh here on the earth, that we will receive our Roses here on the earth while we yet live if we do these things for the kingdom of God’s sake. So what is it that you do before you get to be at the parade in progress here on the earth, and/or to be at a parade in progress from the Kingdom while here on earth. Oh, I didn’t say it was easy: some of the things are more easier for some to do than for others to do. So let’s look again at what the Apostle Peter, and the Lord Jesus talked about: Luke 18:28-29, “Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake.” The first thing that Peter says is that we have left all, so the first thing that you must do is to leave all things and/or people behind that can hinder you from doing anything called on you to do for the sake of the parade. And the second thing that Peter says is that you must follow the directions given for the parade once all the hindrances have been left behind. So let’s say that you’re at a parade on the earth, and depending on the type of parade for example: a Mardi Gras parade may require that you leave the babies behind if you plan on following it, while a Macy’s Day Parade would encourage the babies attendance as following its structure is more doable for the small and less aggressive; and for safety reasons they will have participants leave behind any larger balloons if the winds are forecast to gust at high speeds. And let’s say you’re at a parade from the kingdom while on the earth, and depending on the type of parade for example: an operation of full faith, power faith, working of miracles, and gifts of healings coming forth for you to follow to deliver a baby three weeks early against the attending Doctor’s consent may require you to leave behind and out, everyone you know except the mama because there can be no room for doubt and disbelief if you plan on following the operation through the end. Now on the other hand to finally stand up to abusive behavior by leaving it behind, and walking away from it after years to follow the life plan that God has for you will receive support, and favor from the many. Your peace and joy at either parade is dependent on what you leave behind for the sake of the parade, and by all in which you are willing to follow through to the end of the parade. Oh by the way, I have been to five or six Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans, leave the babies at home if you want to do more than just holler, throw me some mister! lol. I try.
