Jesus for President (Part 1)

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-29-55-am

I’m officially sick of politics.

Lies. Deception. Failure to follow through on definite promises. The same old slogans. Selling hope but delivering the opposite. Outdated leaders that don’t understand the people. ‘The better of two evils’ is often how we describe the candidates.

And us Aussies don’t like any of our leaders. We’ve had something ridiculous like 6 prime minsters in the last 7 years (a new record mind you). We just can’t make our minds up. Nobody truly leads with authority. Nobody really makes us want to follow them. The real issues aren’t being properly addressed.

Can I hear an amen?

We just want a fair shake of the sauce bottle. But there’s certainly an aspect where we have to just put up with it. Attempting to overthrow all of the world’s governments is not a good idea. I repeat: not a good idea.

We should consider our government and authority with respect, praying they rule justly. Yet, their rule is just temporary. No government is lasting, secure or faultless.

“The kingdom of heaven is near” – Jesus (Mark 1:15)

Except this one.

Here we have Jesus putting in his ballot paper. Publicly declaring to everyone his full confidence in this kingdom. The line has been drawn.

And even more than that, Jesus promises nothing in this world can rival this kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:10-11). Not some cheap knock-off or temporary rule of a government with an average leader.

This is the real deal.

Now, we place a lot of different thoughts onto the word kingdom. Medieval stuff like castles, knights, and drawbridges with shark infested waters. But kingdom in its simplest form is just a shortened form of King’s Dominion. 

The activity and reign of the King.

So when Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is near, it can actually be taken literally. Jesus was physically with the people. Therefore, the kingdom was literally near. So if we want to find out what this kingdom is all about, we should look to the activity of the king. We should look to the works and words of Jesus.

Let’s find out how worthy a candidate this Jesus is.

_________________________________________________________________

Without trying to be too blunt, there’s seriously no competition in the race for best PM and government when Jesus is in the picture. And in the end, our vote doesn’t determine his rule and reign. This baby is happening.

The ball is in your court to decide whether you want to be part of His government. So without further ado, here’s Part 1 of why Jesus is by far the best leader the world has and will ever see:

  • He is a down-to-earth, humble, servant hearted leader.

Down-to-earth is defined as practical, humble, unpretentious and reasonable.

Jesus defines down-to-earth in more ways than one. First of all, Jesus literally came down from heaven to earth (John 6:38). I honestly don’t know what is more down-to-earth than that.

Secondly, Jesus didn’t take up heaps of sweet privileges as a king might be expected to. He was born in a stable to a poor couple. A carpenter, hard worker. He experienced the common struggles of man. Not pretentious or snobby at all. Jesus experienced life, all of the pain and suffering that comes with it.

Jesus is down-to-earth personified.

jesus-with-a-child

Furthermore, Jesus came in complete humility and servant leadership.

He hung out with the lowest. He fed the needy. He healed the sick. He washed the disciples feet. Jesus took the humble position of a slave by consistently looking to the needs of others (Phillipians 2:4-7).

And what’s crazy is that Jesus literally redefined humility. No joke.

Around the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire was flying on all cylinders. And to them, any form of humility was a sign of weakness. According to John Dickson (historian), humility in roman culture was odd and regarded as a perversion of natural order.

However, historians have observed a new word that “coincidentally” began circulation around the time Jesus died. This word was lowered (or humility). Interestingly, it was used in a positive sense to define a form of greatness.

Considering the roman culture of the time, this new definition was extremely odd. Completely counter cultural. Historians have found no way to explain this radical redefinition except for one conclusion:

Humility without Jesus doesn’t make sense.

  • He cares for all people

You would think someone as famous, complete, and sought after as Jesus wouldn’t have time for those on the fringes of society.

Wrong.

He looked to all people. The liars, the prostitutes, the injured and disabled, the children, the ordinary, the people of authority. Jesus identified with these people. He spent time with them. Ate lunch with such people.

Why does Jesus consistently look to the lives of the outcasts?

Jesus was ushering in his kingdom and its values. In his kingdom, there is no hierarchy or social ladder. Everyone is equal. Jesus said the greatest in his kingdom will take the humble and lowly position of a child (Matthew 18:4).

Essentially Jesus is referring back to the beatitudes, where he stated those who are poor in spirit and realise their need for God will inherit the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:3).

IMG_2609

How awesome that is. To enter into God’s kingdom, we don’t need to be wealthy. We don’t need to have great social presence, or heaps of awesome skills. In fact, we can be the complete opposite.

All God requires is we position ourselves as we are – flawed, lowly, ordinary – and put our faith in him. God accepts and loves everyone who comes to him, evidenced through the works of Jesus.

Anyone is welcome into his kingdom.

  • He rules with justice, fairness and authority

Many times history records people who were amazed by the way Jesus led.

After Jesus finished preaching the sermon on the mount, it records the crowds as being ‘amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority – quite unlike their teachers of religious law’ (Matthew 7:28).

The people recognised something different about Jesus. This Jesus dude actually cared about the people, unlike the religious teachers. That was the first difference they noticed.

Never had the world seen humble, servant leadership coexist with absolute authority.

What they also saw was that he wasn’t some wishy-washy, tolerate everything sort of guy. Despite his loving nature, his policies were hardline. Uncompromising.

They didn’t see a man that just knew his policies well, but exemplified them perfectly. They saw a man that didn’t just claim to love all people, but actually loved them. They saw a man that stood for justice not just in word, but in action.

Jesus led by example. And the world hasn’t been the same since.

    “The kingdom of heaven is near” can also be translated as “The kingdom of heaven is within you”. We must become the image of Jesus and reflect Him into the world. The responsibility lies with us. The meaning of “the kingdom within” is mysitcal in every sense. If one partakes of the the Holy Eucharist then they can be assured that Jesus Christ, in the literal sense, is within, and we become Him as we allow Him to reign in our hearts – Our will becomes His will and the will of the Father. There is no distance between us and heaven – nothing can separate us from the love of God except our own sin. He expects us to allow His power to work through us and affect/effect the world around us. Jesus also said “My kingdom is not of the is world” and was upset with the Jewish expectation that the coming of the Messiah did not mean an earthly king.

      I have read that different translation. Essentially thought, I believe they both come back to the same core of Jesus. You were spot on when you said we must become the image of Jesus and reflect Him. To follow in the footsteps of Christ is imperative – though we will never do so perfectly. Thanks for your time Heart of Gold! 🙂

    I think there is the literal, the metaphorical and the allegorical. The Kingdom of Heaven is near can relate to our own open hearts accepting Jesus as God manifest hear on earth but true we should also be inspired and be Christ-like in order to create a true Kingdom but no-body gives a shit? Maybe all will fall and a heavenly paradise will emerge some day from this madness.

        Mark 11:12 KJV “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” – There is a certain tension between resting/trusting in God’s sovereignty and proactivity/vigilance involved in following Jesus. Much like the reformers in the past, when history calls for it, we must step our with a certain zeal to enforce His will. Not on our own strength but as the Holy Spirit leads us and by His grace. It’s like when godly men fight for justice. I see voting the same way, it’s like making a stand for God’s Kingdom. 🙂

        I see what you mean now. You are right – we definitely have no promises that we will avoid suffering in this life. Much the reverse. Jesus himself went through intense suffering so that we could have access to the Kingdom. And he calls us to follow him, not just into death but also life. What a huge task and promise we have. Thanks heaps for your time Riz! 🙂

    Hi Jonathan, Christians in America have a great capacity for mixing faith with nationalistic zeal as if God is in covenant with America in the same way He was/is with Israel. So our elections have heavy religious overtones for many. I keep trying to remind Christians that we became citizens of Heaven and we’re now ambassadors for our King, not patriotic zealots of the earthly nation we happen to be passing through.

    Yo! I just wanted to come by and say that this was an awesome, AWESOME insightful read, and totally true! It’s unfortunate here in America (it’s awesome that you’re in Australia, by the way) how our leadership somewhat reflects the way we are as a country. I say “somewhat” because, as with any group of people, a part does not entirely reflect the whole all the time. It’s a mess over here, but just as you so wonderfully pointed out in this post, there IS an ultimate leader who far and away is much better to turn to.

    Jesus yo.

    I was on youtube the other say, and a pastor put something in perspective for me: the kingdom of God is here and we are citizens of Heaven sent here to colonize the earth. So for instance wherever the British colonized, British citizens were sent to establish it’s Kingdom, and the current occupents had to then learn British language and customs. We as citizens of Heaven have authority to do the same as we are establishing the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Sadly it seems the world infiltrates the church, and the church becomes like the world instead of the other way around.

    Furthermore, Jesus is a king and heaven is a kingdom, thus making the bible political rather than religious. And how fitting is that at this time? Idk, it was definitely something to think about .

    Good stuff. I had some similar thoughts about the upcoming election in the US, where I live. I won’t lie — it’s a full-on mess over here, but it only serves to remind me with each passing day that I actually belong to the heavenly Kingdom and not to any earthly country anyway. I love how C. S. Lewis talks of this earth as “enemy-occupied territory.” That, at least, becomes clearer with each passing year although it comes as no surprise for any student of God’s Word. We can all know what’s coming may not be comfortable, but it will be good because He is good.

    Love the insight on humility. Very interesting — hadn’t heard that before. I am often struck with a fresh wave of awe when I am reminded in a new way just how astonishing Jesus’s life and sacrificial death truly was. It is the single most incredible act of love and humility possible. May I never take that for granted!

I am so very glad to know — in fact getting your blog came on a very good day actually when I was really just still confronting Christians this side of the pond — and so tired of speaking — but you have encouraged me along with the comments from others — that there are young people striving to know who Jesus really is, to serve Him as King, and to speak truth to others.

    Christ for King and President, or the Ones whom follow his ways! God is raising up his Kingdom; it consists of the most unlikely candidates. The first will be last, and the last will be first. Is the world ready for the True Kingdom? Everything has to change, then the Kingdom will be established. The Kingdom is within, or at hand, according to Jesus in the scriptures. However, we need to make it on “earth as in heaven.” Thy Kingdom come on earth! God is waiting on us. We need to spread the news of the True Kingdom. Thanks brother for sharing your faith. Keep writing…. We are taking over the internet for the Kingdom. I prophesy to your blog: Be mighty in the Lord, your words are inspired by the Holy Spirit. Go and write my words in the crevices of the internet, until it is overwhelmed with truth, hope, faith, love, and my glory! Your heart is like that of David’s, your hands are like the scribes off old….but now you deliver my words differently. My Word will take over all platforms, websites, pages, forums, blogs, emails….including Google, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress…. My Word will be pressed….My Word will be googled, and blogged, and tweeted…. Bring out the trumpet, and proclaim My Name to the World. I own the world-wide web….I created it through Words, symbols, code, and languages. Make my words simple, and my messages clear. Use your creativity to take over the darkness, the lies and deceit. Stay on board my ship and watch! The Lord of Hosts decreed a plan, in the beginning was the Word…. In the end is the Word. The Word is Now, the Kingdom is at hand, and my Elect have been chosen. They will deliver my Words through prophet utterances and many tongues.

    I believe that was a message to you. The Lord delights in your spirit because it is part of the One Spirit. You have been a blessing to many, so receive your reward! God is still leading me to prophesy: The Spirit says, my words are truth and abstract, as a slice of the sea…you can’t see or feel, but you can visualize or imagine it. My Words are vibrating the thoughts into existence. I am Vibration! I am Sound….I am Light…. “I Am” is my Name. I am that I am…. You are what you are. We are One! One is taking over “www” and “https” and “.com”…… One new language, the eternal language of 💘 love, liberty, life. The Trinity of words have confused

        Sorry….having technology issues. “To live,” is to “🗽 liberty.” How do you differentiate between the words of life…. God is Love, Life, and Liberty. God is Spirit, and Spirit is Truth; Words are spirit and truth; therefore, God is Truth. The truth will set you free, or give you liberty, so the three “L” words are One.

        I am truly sorry for taking up so much space in your comments; however, I do feel led by the Holy Ghost….. If you are offended in anyway by my words, please let me know. I believe that my words and God’s words are, often, the same. God speaks to everyone in the same way, through Spirit. Spirit is hard to describe with words, but easy to describe by feelings and emotions. Empathy is my language. Imagine no words, how would communication happen? Spirit to spirit, heart to heart, mind to mind….how can you seperate spirit, heart, and mind? The Word is sharp….it divides soul and spirit, and feelings and emotions. Thoughts produce feelings, the combination of the two create emotions. The fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Self-Control….. Faithfulness…. Can you hear, feel, perceive, and taste God? Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, you can move mountains, perform miracles, and blog your heart out. I give you credit for speaking the Truth, and I pray God uses you expose the darkness and enforce the Light. Maybe you can do a guest blog on (LLL). I need some quality content, and I see that you can deliver. I am proud to call you a brother. I want to award you with the honor to write on my blog. Don’t take this lightly….I have only one other guest blog, and she wrote a poem for my Twin’s memorial. I have bragged about a few people and acknowledged them on (LLL), but I want to give you a chance to testify. The inspiration of the hour by ______ your name or website, or link, or blog, or page. Thanks for letting my speak into your life. Please, consider copying this message, and sending it back to me by gmail or somewhere I can copy it. I feel that the world needs to hear this! I wonder why I can’t copy and paste this from my phone, is it something about WordPress…..or does my phone have a brain of it’s own?

        Appreciate the offer to write on your blog. But I think I might stick to what I know over here. Praying that the primary goal in my writing is not to draw people to this blog, but the word of God (Matthew 4:4). All the best with your work mate! 🙂

        I appreciate your humility, but God takes pleasure in us, God is using you to manifest the Word. Do you believe in partnership with the Almighty One? We are more than just servants, we are sons and co-heirs with Christ. I feel what you are saying though, all good gifts come from God. Keep using your gifts for the Kingdom, he is allowing us to establish the Kingdom on earth, what an honor! Be blessed my brother!

      #LLK! May all attention be directed to Christ. Who humbled himself in full obedience to God the Father (Philippians 2), and who finds pleasure in giving us the Kingdom (Luke 12:32). What a King! What a Saviour!

    “Washing feet” means “washing hands”. People need to wash their hands before having a meal. Who wants to wash his feet before having a meal?

      Washing feet before meals and bed was a custom of the times. The Bible is not wrong in saying there was washing of feet – that was actually quite normal. What wasn’t normal was the person of highest honour doing the washing!

        If you’re telling the truth, tell me why Bible never mentions washing of hands. Should one wash his hands or his feet before having a meal? Unless you suggest ancient people used to eat with their feet!

        As I have stated, this was a custom of the times. I realise it may seem weird. But this is a well known fact of the culture back then. Look it up if you have the time 🙂 The issue of whether he washed feet in this story is never in question. But who knows – perhaps they washed their hands in this process too.

    How down to earth Lord Jesus is!!! “He came from heaven to earth”; could there be a better description?

    Wow, this description strikes me. I have a prayer. May the saints be like Christ: “down to earth”.

    Lots of Jesus to you Dear Bro.
