What is the Kingdom?
The Kingdom of God has always been a touchy subject, as it relates to Christians. As humans, we find it difficult to believe in something we can't see; therefore, we tend to relate the Kingdom of God to our local church, the building. This is why Jesus came to break up the traditions of men and their religious theologies, and introduced the Kingdom of Heaven which is the awakening of us!
Everything we need to become the person we were created to be, is within us and not in the four walls of a church. We ARE the church! When we congregate as believers, whether it's at a church, a conference or attend a seminar, the goal should be to empower the individual to know one's purpose in God. Accepting your purpose will allow us the ability to go out into the world and dominate! Then WE, become a light to the world that cannot be hidden and God shall receive glory for his Kingdom. So what is the Kingdom? Great question!
The Bible is clear that the Kingdom of God is a literal government, that has been established in the earth through us. Mainstream Christianity does not teach the same message that Jesus Christ taught, which was repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand (Matthew 10:7) Repent, meaning to turn away from and change our mind because a new form of government is here. AMEN! We believe that the biggest crisis in the church is identity crisis, as well as not knowing and understanding what the Kingdom of God is and how to operate within it. We have to first realize that we were all predestined with a specific assignment, to accomplish the King's agenda. In our daily dependence upon God, in which the Holy Spirit guides us, shall result in our transformation into the Image of Christ. Furthermore, the number one goal of a citizen in a Kingdom is to please the King. Psalms 37:4 says: to "delight in the Lord and he shall give us the desires of our heart". The laws of a Kingdom are the way by which one is guaranteed access to the benefits and privileges of the king and his Kingdom. Violations of Kingdom laws can place one at odds with the King and interrupt a favorable position with him. These violations can cause us not to live abundantly within his system. In this article, we want to share with you that the Kingdom of God is literal and has the same components of the Kingdoms here on earth. Here are a few examples: 1. All Kingdoms have to have a King (our king is Jesus Christ and He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords). 2. All Kingdoms must have a territory (our King owns the earth and everything that's in it). 3. All Kingdoms have a constitution or laws (our constitution is the word of God, the Holy bible). 4. All Kingdoms have citizenship (we are joint heirs with Christ. In God's Kingdom we are only managers. Our king gives us ruler-ship, but NOT ownership). 5. All Kingdoms have a military (In our Kingdom we have angels that watch over and are assigned to each and every one of us). This is why in our constitution in (Matthew 6:33) says "seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you). Most of today's believers are seeking everything the world has to offer and making it their God. In fact, all he wants us to do is believe that his Kingdom exist and be willing and obedient to his commands. By doing so, we will become who we were created to be and live our lives more abundantly.
