Repent: The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand

Outcasts from the Garden of GodDeceived by an erroneous conception of ourselves and our good, we become outcasts from of the garden of God and are cut off from the tree of life. Lost in the mental and emotional labyrinth of the carnal mind and shackled by an ever increasing burden of guilt and sin, we struggle to redeem our past and secure our future, but to no avail:

“Those who try to make their life secure will lose it, but those who lose their life will keep it”  (Luke 17:33).

The agenda of the carnal mind is clearly a losing proposition—a dead-end street if ever there was one.  Turn Toward the LightBut by the grace of God we are born again— not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible (I Peter 1:22-25) —as we become aware of the “I Am” presence and begin drinking freely from the fountain of living water that flows just beneath the surface.  This life-giving water is always available— and only available —here and now!  And it is, indeed, freely available—whosoever will may come!  All that is necessary is to repentto turn from our time-bound, mind-made sense of self and abide in Christ (the Divine presence within us which is always the same—yesterday, today, and forever).  In the process, we lay aside the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (cf. Genesis 2 and 3). Thus it is written:

    • judge not (Matthew 7:1; Luke 6:37);
    • resist not evil (Matthew 5:39);
    • be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).

“Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).
