The Upsidedown Kingdom

Published on 5/21/2015

Paradox or Truth?
I used to be intrigued by the expressions, "the Kingdom of God is an upside down Kingdom" or in Christendom, "the first shall be last and the last shall be first". But the most intriguing is "one must die in order to live". Wow! How is that possible, I thought. Well, our Creator would not have us ignorant of the things that are truly important to living an abundant life.

What does Nature and the world around us teach?
In order for a corn seed to grow it must be planted in the soil. After a period of time, the seed dies. It actually decays. But then, out of that dying come another new corn plant that grows up, produces new corn and the cycle continues and continues.

But what about you and me?
Let's look at it from two perspectives. The natural and the spiritual. First the spiritual: Given that the spiritual (that which cannot be seen but is more real and substantial than what is seen) consider the human mind. It is the mind that controls our natural body functions. Applying the "corn analogy" one must bury the negative, debilitating influences of our past so our minds are free and clear to think clearly, to dream, to create untold possibilities, using the untapped mental capacity that is lost when we carry negative baggage, holding on to the past. But when we let it die, new life is possible.

New life

And the natural...
For those who are in the Kingdom of God and who die a natural death, like the corn, is buried but at the appointed time, will be raised a glorified body and will forever be with our Redeemer.
