Jesus Christ is truth and sets us apart for God's use only by the spirit of truth revealed through the words of life, the gospel of the Kingdom of God. Hear a small nugget from His truth.
Jesus Christ is alive and well now all over the earth. He stands at many church doors knocking to come in and be free to transform His people into Kingdom disciples. We, His body should be as alive and well and as sent into the world as He was. We, the church need to come away with the Lord and be transformed again from our soul powered traditions of religion. We need to surrender our control of church to the Holy Spirit who is the only one who knows how to build it God's way. God is not after a successful church according to the methods of man on the earth or the culture of the day in which we live. He is after an apostolic church that is focused on the whole body of Christ being matured into His stature, downloaded from heaven with His power and saturated with His love to reach the world with the gospel of the Kingdom of God.
He now rides, in the spirit realm, the white horse of Revelation 19, across this world as the mighty warrior but soon coming visible, conquering King of Kings, Lord of Lords. So we, His body, must mount up with Him and ride now letting Him hold all the reins. We, His body, are to hold only the sword of His redemption, as the words of God are alive in us and in our mouth. As Revelation 5 reveals the Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed to open the books of the final act on the earth and the Kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our Lord. Likewise we, the church are to walk with the Lion and prevail against the gates of hell. As the Kingdom of God is revealed in us and given to us we are to arise and shine bringing all glory, honor and power unto the King of Kings. We are to know and to encounter the very presence of His throne.
We, the entire body of Christ, are to reign with Him in His authority as kings and priests. As Jesus ascended to heaven He gave gifts to the church for one purpose and with one mission; they are to mature the whole body to be ministers and disciples of the Kingdom of God. These gifts are the leaders designated by God to build the foundation of the church on Jesus Christ alone. These are teams of men and women who lead from the heart, not as Christians in another class or as Kings and Queens in the Kingdom. There is no class in the Kingdom of God, as all are equal in worth. They are to be honored for their works sake as it is a great work with much travail to mature the body until Christ be formed in them. Jesus Christ has washed us in his blood and made us (all) kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever (Rev.1:5).
Oh so sweet is the executor of the Kingdom who lives in us. He the person of the Holy Spirit directs our steps and empowers our lives for the greater works of Christ, to bring forth 30, 60, and 100 fold fruit of the Kingdom and glorify our Father. The Holy Spirit of God in you, the church, woos you to live and decree before your Father in heaven whose name is hallowed, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Oh how the Father's heart aches to give His Kingdom now to His remnant people on the earth. It is an undiscovered country to most of His church. We, the church, have lived in the religious system so long we cannot see the Kingdom. In this undiscovered country of the Kingdom of God on the earth are many inheritances for His people. Inheritances that were not pressed into and not taken by force and went to the grave unclaimed and are now falling from heaven for this generation of Kingdom disciples who will pay the price, press, and persevere until there is a breakthrough to destiny on this earth and beyond. The Father has many new inheritances to give as well. Prophesy to the inheritances that have gone to the grave to be resurrected in His living body today and receive them. In my Father's house are many mansions, mansions of spiritual and natural goods, the King's riches, inheritance's, abundant refuge places, and deep communion. There is a tangible ache of the Father's heart to give the Kingdom to His children.
The Father's heart aches to see the church come out of the religious activity, which actually kills the very life and move of His Kingdom on the earth. The Kingdom of God is about real God-life on the earth, not just good life, not just about the weekly professional successful services, great programs, writing books and marketing messages, or even the cultural methods of an institution that we call church. The church is to be the Kingdom of God in the kingdoms of this world and be passionately in love with the King of Kings. The Kingdom is about knowing the King and doing His will; it's about turning the injustices of this world to justices, destroying the works of the devil and bringing the equality of a full measure of the stature of Christ into His whole body on the earth. It is not about setting up kingdoms of religious activity ruled by a few. It can almost be audibly heard, as the Lord says, "prophesy to the wind that these dead bones of my church will arise again to my Kingdom." Prophesy that dead works and inheritances that have gone to the grave will be resurrected to His greater works now in His disciples on the earth. Prophecy that dry bones will be restored, that all the body will be put together on these resurrected bones and my glorious church will arise to usher in His soon coming. The spirit and the bride say "Come, Lord Jesus".
The battle is great for the Kingdom of God to come in His church. The church was born out of the Kingdom. The devil will rage much more over Kingdom activity than he rages over regular church attendance, or religious activities. The religious spirit will war against the Kingdom of God and many are the adversaries, but this revelation imparted into His church is a great effective door that has been opened to us from heaven. Our prayers now for one another daily and our exhortation for one another daily are critical.
"By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place, which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God." Hebrews 11:8-10
If we see the promise of the Kingdom then as they did in Abraham's day (verse 13) we must embrace the promises of the Kingdom, and confess them, and live like we are strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
"For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country, And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they come out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is and heavenly; wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God for he hath prepared for them a city." Hebrews 11:14-16
We must daily remind ourselves and decree what is truth, the gospel of the Kingdom, as our spirit needs to develop its hearing by our words of faith. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying and decree it!
Pray with me if you can,
"Father help me to seek first and foremost, with all my heart, soul, and strength the King, the person of Jesus Christ. Give me grace to seek earnestly to live and move and have my very being only in Christ, and to cast far from me all fear of man, for it is Your good pleasure to give me the Kingdom. "
So be it!
