Matthew 3:1-2 “In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”
John came to a religous people who were in a religous system and says you are not going to be able to take your religous mindset and mash the kingdom through it.
Everyone of us has a filter. It may be a heathen filter, baptist filter, pentecostal filter, strict filter, lenient filter, or other. Nevertheless, everyone has one. The difficulty lies when we try and take something we learn from the Word of Yahweh and slam it through the filter we already have in place. Not understanding that the kingdom cannot pass through your current filter because the kingdom is a filter all to itself. John is saying that you will have to remove what you have already learned up to this point and you will now have to have a kingdom mindset. Then everything you hear Yahweh say will go through a kingdom filter instead of you trying to see it through what you’ve been through or what you’ve already been taught up to this point.
Here’s to expanding the kingdom through the filter exchange program!
