Suppose you lived in the poorest nation in this world, yet you were an ambassador of the richest nation, it makes sense that you would not be subject to the poverty of the nation in which you represented your government.
But imagine that you, the ambassador, went out of the embassy and someone hit you on the head and you lose your memory and forget you are an ambassador! From that point on, you become subject to the poverty of your host nation.
Your poverty will persist until you regain your memory and come to an awareness that you are meant to be sustained by the wealthiest nation in existence. This is no parable. This is the true position of humanity. Every person on earth originates from God’s kingdom. The process of being born is analogous to being hit on the head such that you lose your spiritual memory of the kingdom of heaven.
The life you live on earth from your birth is a life unconscious of the original kingdom you come from. The day you come to an awareness that you need God and the salvation He offers through His Son Yeshu’a is the day that you begin to regain your spiritual memory. From that day on (if the process is not hijacked by the enemy of your kingdom) you gradually disconnect yourself from this world and its economy and culture and reconnect yourself to the economy and culture of your home nation-the Kingdom of God.
Remember, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us”-2 Corinthians 5:20.
