Even though we are in such close proximity to God, because He is Spirit, we would never know He was there apart from revelation. That revelation comes by way of the incarnation of God in the person of Jesus Christ. He is the doorway into the kingdom.
In an earlier article, I wrote, “…if we are wrong in our understanding of the theology of God, then all of our other doctrines are equally as wrong. The knowledge of God is fundamental and foundational to all other beliefs.” I believe the same thing is true of our understanding of the kingdom of God and how Jesus fits into God’s plan for that kingdom.
