Self promotion does nothing for the kingdom:
When people accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, repent, and turn from sin they become the temple of God. God had 2 physical temples that were destroyed, but because of what Jesus did we are now spiritual temples that can't be destroyed. The mission of the two witnesses is to build the temple of God. How do you build the spiritual temple of God? You tell people the good news(gospel) of what Jesus did so that they may be saved and become a temple, and all the temples combined are one temple for all are one in Jesus Christ. If you read the book of haagai and zechariah it shows joshua and zerubbabel building the temple. These two books show the two witnesses in the end, those books show the physical rebuilding after the destruction of Israel but the two end times witnesses rebuild the spiritual temple, same story just spiritual instead of physical. So if someone is promoting themselves and calling people idiots, stupid and such they are not building the temple of God they are tearing it down. Look at yourself and see are you building the temple of God by telling others of Jesus or are you tearing down the temple by promoting yourself and not even mentioning Jesus? Accept Jesus as savior today, become a temple, and encourage others to be part of the kingdom.
2nd corinthians 6:16:
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
The beast and the false prophet build the physical temple but the two witnesses build the spiritual temple(tell people about Jesus is building the temple). Those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, repent, and turn from sin are the temple of God
:o) The first key to the kingdom of heaven within is to know thy self
. The first lock upon the gate is the one towards seeing who we are and what we are
, whatever it may be. Once that locked is breached, the soul moves inward and upward toward wonder, beauty, joy, grace, and ecstasy. No other person than you can unlock that gate. You must do it
. Your hand must be on the key. And the key itself is made of the metals of honesty and sincerity coupled with a willingness to face whatever you see and learn about yourself with humility and courage.
And you know The little things, the big things, and the millions of in-between things. At the end of the day, Is Always how did you handle it all?
The best and only judge of your actions, feelings, and thoughts is YOU, the judge that resides in the chambers of the heart, the doorway to the Kingdom of Heaven within. For that judge—the only judge that has earned the right to observe you, guide you, and love you unconditionally—is the Christ and it is in the chambers of your own heart that His Whispers can be heard.
