Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” (John 18:36 ESV)
Иисус отвечал: Царство Мое не от мира сего; если бы от мира сего было Царство Мое, то служители Мои подвизались бы за Меня, чтобы Я не был предан Иудеям; но ныне Царство Мое не отсюда. (От Иоанна 18:36 Russian)
Dear Father in heaven ~ thank you Lord for the many proofs of your invisible and powerful presence in our lives on this another new day. We do not deny the existence of wind since we can experience the comfort of a gentle breeze as well as the destructive and power of wind storm. Open the cold hearts of many cynics, critics and doubters to the very real nature of your Spirit in the seen and unseen world of ours. Bless all the citizens of the Kingdom of Christ who are presently living in this created world as part of the visible and invisible Church for which Christ died. Drown out the noise and effectiveness of those false teachers who elevate themselves to the place of a puppet king over the glorious kingdom of Christ, whom we serve with loving devotion. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
