Two Kingdoms

Two Kingdoms
by Judy Hitson

Colossians 1:13 NLT For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,

Do you know when or if you were transferred to the Kingdom of God’s Son?

Without a shadow of a doubt, on October 25, 1979, I was rescued from the kingdom of darkness and transferred into the Kingdom of God’s Son. It was a dramatic conversion that morning as I was driving to work in my car. While listening to Christian radio, I told the Lord, “I feel like my prayers are not getting further than the ceiling.” When the music stopped, the radio announcer said, “That’s right folks. All you need to do is ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart.” I had asked Him many times in my life but this time my heart was desperate to surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ. In an instant, I knew I received the Holy Spirit. He instructed me to veer off the road. Instead I drove toward the intersection where I ended up in a car accident. In time, I understood what had happened. I was filled with the Holy Spirit. My testimony verse is Ephesians 5:18 NLT Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit. This verse disturbed me until I experienced it. I knew what it was to be drunk with wine, but being filled with the Holy Spirit was a new beginning for me.

Where do you stand in regard to the two kingdoms? Are you walking in the light as He is in the light by His Spirit who gives life?

The contrast of the two kingdoms is stark, from darkness to light and from death to life. Consider the following verses before the Lord.

John 8:12 NLT…….Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.

Acts 26:18 NLT to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

John 5:24 NLT “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

Romans 8:6 NLT So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.

 Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, help me be active in the kingdom work You have for me by Your Spirit and finish well. Amen.


  1. Your story made me smile this morning!!! This is an important story for all people who feel like their God isn’t interested enough to answer our prayers. Oh, if only people would share their stories, like Judy, so others would know to ask our Jesus to come into their hearts and rule! May this story go out to all who need it and want Him!
    P.S. Did you get a DUI?
