The Message

Christianity is part of the Kingdom.

The Kingdom of God is something with distinct and independent existence preached by Jesus Christ, and those who are part of it must be in total submission to the rule of the Father as stated by the Son. To be born again is a requirement to become sons of God. God’s Kingdom, as presented to us, consists of God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and all the children of God who have entered the Family of God through God’s calling, being born again is spiritually becoming a new creation, and receiving God’s Holy Spirit, and through repentance, God wiped out all the sins “forgiven and forgotten.” It is a blessing that the grace of God anointed us to be part of the Trinity.

Christianity is divided into various denominations; Catholicism is the largest among the three branches of Christianity. Catholic (Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Catholic Evangelicals); 2nd largest division is Protestantism, separated from the Catholic Church in the 16th century during the Reformation with the belief that salvation is only through faith in Jesus, his sacrifice as payment for the sins of humanity, and his death and resurrection.

The third with significant members is Orthodoxy. The Orthodox Church believes the Holy Spirit proceeds only from God the Father, unlike the Catholic Roman Church believes the Holy Spirit proceeds from God the Father to Jesus Christ the Son and does believe that the Pope has supreme authority over the Christian faith, which the Orthodoxy does not believe.

The word Catholic was acquired from the Greek word that means universal. Catholic evangelicals, which might be new to you, means Christian believers who consider themselves Catholic and Evangelical and do not submit to the Pope. Father, guide us more to trust You, to depend on You, and to love You more without a single mustard seed of doubt. Father, your goodness and richness are unreachable; you are great and faithful to your word. When you say it, You will do it. Father, You are a great provider; you proved it through the work of the Son Jesus. Thank you, Father, for everything we have.
