The True Kingdom
To truly understand and enter into the Kingdom of God will require that we first be unplugged from the Matrix with its false religious system and counterfeit kingdom. It will require an open heart and an open mind to the fresh downloads of Heaven. The minute we become unplugged we begin to enter into a Kingdom dimension and recognize the Matrix for what it is. Those who refuse to become unplugged from the system inadvertently become agents and advocates of a false kingdom within this Matrix, opposing the true Kingdom of God in the earth. While these people are not necessarily our enemies, the system they ascribe to and represent surely is. It is a system which perpetuates blindness and deception. Many Christians are still waiting for the great deception and falling away, but that day has already come and gone. Deception isn’t coming; it’s already here, and has been for quite some time.

What is the Matrix?
If you’ve read this far and still haven’t seen the movie, you’re probably very anxious at this point to discover what the Matrix is. As Neo also discovered after finally meeting with Morpheus, it is very difficult to explain exactly what the Matrix really is. Here is how Morpheus explained it to Neo:
“Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”
“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

Recently, the Lord has been reminding me of the 1999 hit movie called The Matrix. It was a movie that took the entertainment industry by storm and totally revolutionized film-making with its spectacular visual effects, using a ground-breaking technique called bullet time that allowed the viewer to explore a moment progressing in slow motion as the camera appears to orbit around the scene at normal speed. But the true value of this movie is not its ground-breaking visual effects, cast of actors, or success at the Oscars. For me, what sets this movie apart and gives it great value are the powerful prophetic truths or principles embedded within the storyline and communicated so profoundly on film. It is one of those movies, I am almost convinced, was written and produced through divine unction.

As Nicodemus is left in wonderment trying to process this new doctrine being taught by Jesus, the “born again” (or born from above) principle is reaffirmed again for the third time, this time with the plural pronoun for you (v. 7), indicating that the principle was to be applied not just to Nicodemus, but to the entire religious company of believers in Jerusalem—the center of worship and religious expression.

Jesus’ answer to Nicodemus’ concealed question or heart of uncertainty is very “matter of fact” and emphatic. The words truly truly or “verily verily (KJV) or “most assuredly” (NKJV) are rendered from a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew word āmēn. He is basically giving double affirmation to a profound and infallible truth: Unless one is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God (v. 3).
