The remarkable thing about Jesus is that He was, so to speak, crucified on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Yet by doing so he turned it into the tree of life. Jesus undid the death sentence that was passed on all when Adam and Eve ate the fruit which makes all ‘surely die.’ But anyone who eats Jesus lives. Jesus and the cross should be seen together. It’s the cross of Jesus that put death to death. It was Jesus the person who turned death into life. It’s the resurrection from the death of that cross that gives us His life. Jesus is the resurrection and the life in person. He is life itself.
There is a culture of love and life that flows from Jesus. This is the new creation and the Kingdom of God. Jesus makes alive, families, churches, society and the nations. He joins the entire creation by love and fills all things with His life. The new creation lives in Jesus and He is its life.
The Kingdom of God’s Son is the life of Jesus in you, in the people and in all things. This Kingdom is magnified and multiplied as people live in Jesus rather than in things. Particularly does it advance when Jesus is the life of His people rather than religion an attempted life. This is why we are moving from the church age to the Kingdom age. When Jesus is entirely the life of Believers this will be the church Jesus has built. The church that is the manifestation of Christ in His people is the Kingdom of God. They are one and the same and nothing of man or the Enemy will be able to thwart its advance.
