“Your kingdom come. Your will be done. On earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
There is no spiritual Switzerland.


Switzerland is a neutral country, according to Wikipedia - The Swiss Confederation has a long history of neutrality — it has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815—and did not join the United Nations until 2002. It pursues, however, an active foreign policy and is frequently involved in peace-building processes around the world.

Switzerland made a decision to sit out all regional or international conflicts by not making alliances with warring nations. Other nations have honored Switzerland’s policy of neutrality and not invaded them. They do have a military but has only deployed their forces when they perceived threats of invasion from neighboring nations.

There is however, no spiritual neutrality. Contrary to what some seem to believe, you are either in the kingdom of evil or the kingdom of God.

To which kingdom do you belong?

It depends on who you have chosen as your king! Everyone serves a king! Either you serve God or you serve the evil one who is the ruler of this world. And, unless you have renounced evil, repented of your sins, turned from sin, and began to love and obey God you are not of His kingdom.

The significance of Christ’s death on the cross was to provide you and me with the choice of which king we would serve. His death and resurrection made it possible break free from the kingdom of darkness and have power to step into God’s Kingdom.
You have the power to let His kingdom come to you or you can oppose His kingdom by stubbornly refusing to surrender to His will.

Switzerland is great for chocolate and cheese and yodeling but you can’t go there spiritually. Don’t even try!
