Kingdom of God

Kingdom Passport

Introducing the “Kingdom Passport Project”

Every human is a migrant! Some flee from bombs and destruction, others flee from religious or political repression, but most people flee from the traumas of their own past.

KP_Cover_w_StickerThe urging question is, “where to run?” Europe is not really the promised land. Where is the country that so many people feel homesick for, without ever having been there? This booklet addresses that best kept secret of the world.

We are launching a new missionary project that aims at explaining to the above mentioned migrants of all three categories how to become naturalized citizens of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. The goal is not to make more proselytes for the religion of Christianity, but to seed into them the Gospel of the Kingdom in such a way, to directly become “citizens of heaven” (Phil 3:20), without the detour of man-made religion. The readers are encouraged to start “Kingdom communities”, explained in the booklet, with the imagery of the Ark. While the entire world increasingly drowns in a whirlpool of events, the house-boats of God do swim! They are the earthly beachheads for the colonies of the Kingdom of heaven, and provide the only firm and secure ground in a world seemingly spinning out of control. This message is also an important topic for the post-Christian societies of the cultural West, which is facing economic, political and moral challenges of dramatic proportions. That is why there is no better way to prepare ourselves for the future than to become determined citizens of the most fascinating domain that will dominate the future of the world ̶ the unshakeable Kingdom of God (Heb 12:28).

This project is different from the classical evangelistic tract distribution which usually aims at leading people to a conversion and membership of a traditional church. This is explicitly an apostolic sowing initiative. Instead of a come-message, this booklet contains a go-message that can and should spread virally. We will only be able to harvest what we have sown. Let us therefore, give this world a new kind of seed! Jesus Christ said it like this: “This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be proclaimed to all people groups, and then the end shall come.”

We distribute these 28-pages, passport size (A6) booklets for free in various languages. The electronic versions can be downloaded at the website www.kingdompassport.eu. It contains the basic, minimum information of the Gospel of the Kingdom. At the end of the booklet we include the most important Laws of Christ, so that anyone can know beforehand what legal framework he can expect in his new home country and start living by it immediately.

We invite anyone who is interested to become a partner in this project. You could help by posting the Kingdom Passport pdf file on your website. Please let us know if you want to be a translator, a distributor, a sponsor (for printing, translation, logistics), or an intercessor of this project. If we want “to harvest without ceasing” (Gal 6:9), we need to start sowing a seed that multiplies itself. And only the seeds of the Kingdom can do that.

Our dear America – Where do you go from here?

Dear readers, for this post we don’t invite comments. But you may send an e-mail to the address in the pdf file attachment below. Thank you for your understanding.

…We sense that God is saying something important today about the amazing future of America from his Kingdom perspective.

In 2008, God has been challenged by a man standing up in public, preaching to the cheers of a huge crowd: “Yes we can!” We watched it; we saw the tears of excitement in the eyes of the people; the statements were received as if coming from the Messiah himself, and the electoral rallies had all the flavor of a religious revival. “Yes, we can” is the exact opposite of the King of kings saying: “Without me, you can do nothing!”

If God is the one who “deposes kings and raises up others” (Dan 2:21), does it really matter what are the names of the current puppets set in place by God that advance both the New World Order and the Kingdom of God?
Neither Herod, Pilate or Cesar were truly important for the development of the Kingdom. That is exactly why Kingdom people do not play in the Second League, but the First, the one that matters. The one that puts the Kingdom first, and everything else – including their own nation – second.

What Is The Cost Of Your Faith?

We just came back from India and met some very nice people; people who risk and pay very heavy prices for their faith and who can still smile with great joy and pronounce what a privilege and honor it is for them to meet us. We ask them to tell us their love story, their passion and their vision.

Here is a story that we just heard: A young family father of two small children along with his wife has a passion for the Indian Gypsies. He is a gypsy himself who follows Jesus. So far he has led over 100,000 gypsies to Christ, baptized them and discipled them. There are 80 million gypsies altogether in India. So he does not consider 100,000 a number to boast about. He encourages them to do the same to others what just happened to them. We asked him how he lives and he answered, “I have everything, food to eat, place to stay and a car to be mobile.” He lives in a rented hut and his car, (300,000Kms on it), looks like it just comes straight from the scrap yard. In his broken but understandable English he said that he is dead to all these material things. He has Jesus and that is everything. Therefore, he goes to his own kind who are considered as outsiders and untouchables and totally isolated from other people groups in the country to bring them Everything – Jesus!

In India, there is no lack for Christian crusades backed up by Western money. I have seen enough show and exaggeration in India when it comes to number of hands raised for a commitment to follow Jesus. The same crowd goes to the next crusade and the same hands go up again for the same commitment. I have seen how the crowd is asked by the organizers of such crusades to raise their hands and wave. Quickly, the many cameras flash on them and the videos run its film. Then the next thing I see is those very same pictures in the newsletters and monthly Christian magazines with captions that say 100,000 people have raised their hands to follow Jesus. Sickening!

Back to the gypsy man: I wanted to know how real are his numbers and more than the numbers I wanted to know how serious they are in following Jesus. For one thing, there is no money from the West to back him up. With his head shaking left and right in a good Indian manner he says in his Indian accent, “money is needed sir, but not the most important. These people are ready to die for the one who died for them. If you are going to die, why need more?”

Stunned about the simplicity of the gospel, the depth of their faith and the price they are willing to pay for their faith, I come back to Germany and with speechless tears thank God for this great privilege and honor to meet such people. Mt. 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. True that! This man is very poor in his human spirit and that enables him to not only long for the riches of the Kingdom, he owns it.
