5 Things We Are Not!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on April 11, 2018 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Grace to you Kingdom Citizens and peace be unto you. Greetings from the Lord Jesus, our King, who has so richly blessed us freely with all things to enjoy! It is so good to be in a country where we are free to worship God, the Father, by way of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Last month we looked into facts about who we are in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son, and how not to forget all of His benefits as we march along in this life doing the will of the king. I would be remiss not to mention some of the things we are not. In the midst of the storms in life there are some vital things we should know that we are not to be. I am talking about the attitudes that we are not supposed to have. Christ gave us the beatitudes that we are suppose to have in Matthew 5. You know; blessed are the meek and such right?



Well, while you are behaving as the King told you, here are some things to not be as you use your courage to enter into and enjoy your inheritance, which is the Kingdom of God. So many people read the bible and never come up with what the bible is about. Therefore, never teaching what it is about leaves the purpose of the bible to whosoever to interpret and inevitably leading to abuse of the Word. The word ‘bible’ means a collection of books so there is nothing to suggest what the book collection is about.



Once you know what the bible is about you will understand Jesus and His mission to the world. The reason I bring this up now is because in order to put your faith on a matter you must know the will of God. His purpose for the bible is important so that you will activate your faith toward the goals of the king. It is improbable that the God of all the universe would leave a book to those He desires to obey Him, for our own good, and yet at the same time make the book impossible to understand. This is why I teach the kingdom of God, because it reveals so much to the church for its vitality. Yet in this country where kingdom government is not taught there is very little to glean from Jesus when He speaks of the kingdom of Heaven and the kingdom of God.



The bible is about a King wanting to expand His territory by His children so that what goes on in His kingdom can be shared and enjoyed wherever His form of governing is obeyed. God being the King of the earth sent his Son to the earth so that His kingdom can dominate any government of the world. As money is the currency that makes the world go round, faith is the currency that makes the spirit-world go round. Jesus preached and taught the kingdom of God and told His disciples to do the same so that the government of the kingdom can be appropriated by all who believed.



That said, as Jesus told us, “Blessed be the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” There are some attitudes that we should not have as we are believing God to show up strong on our behalf. When you recognize that you are spiritually deprived because of so many things going wrong in your life you will soon learn to call on God because you know that He is the only one who is capable of fixing anything. The government that you live in is bogged down with red tape and can’t respond quickly to anything you vitally need. In between the time you ask God to be involved and the time you see the answer you will go through a battery of tests to prove your faith. Paul mentioned some things that might be plaguing you but he also prescribed an attitude for those moments, and I call them “Things You Are Not.”



We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;” 2 Cor. 4:8-9


You may be troubled on every side, but You Are Not in distress!


Because of who you are in Christ Jesus you may be experiencing anguish all around you but because the living Word is on your lips and in your heart it is like Jesus is with you in the room saying “I got this.” The peace of God garrisons around your heart telling you His angels are all around you so you simply declare the protection they provide and that the wisdom of God is at your disposal keeping you calm and quiet from within. Others will not understand the grace you walk in at that moment. They believe you should be in panic mode. They believe you are a fool to stand there and trust God. “Can’t you see the storm? Can’t you see the waves? What’s wrong with you? You must have done something wrong!” they say.



No, you didn’t do anything wrong. You are standing on the living Word of the King whose Word is law! There is nothing better and if you were smarter than Christ wouldn’t you have demonstrated it by now? You are confident and your knower knows!



You may be perplexed confounded and confused, but You Are Not in despair!

You are in Christ Jesus and that means you are in the kingdom of His dear Son. You have been translated into the covenants of promise and you are not without hope or God in this world. You have unlimited access into the knowledge and council of the Most High God and in fact you are family. The blood of your joint heir and counselor floods the very presence you’re standing in. Your enemy is shouting complex variables at you but you panic not for your father knows where you are and has already made a way of escape, so you rest in that. You can hear the Father tell you that it may not be comfortable but I have you right where I want you so that you can meet this person or see that situation differently so that the others who are watching you can see the example of trusting God. They heard you speak the Word you are standing on and they can tell by the way the circumstances are changing in your favor that God is watching over His Word to perform it! Can you be comfortable with God’s just In time? Yes you can because even if God has not done it for anyone else he will do it with you if your faith is in the God of the blessing and not the blessing itself. You know that you were the example God wanted to use at that moment in time.



You may be persecuted and oppressed, but You Are Not forsaken!

You are in Christ and you have accessed all that God is. You have command of The Living Word on your lips. You simply call to God's remembrance what He said. You have kept His Word and you have claimed your citizenship which is better than membership. You have claimed His kingdom as your home country so now you behave with confidence that God has never lost sight of you. You rest. You gave up ownership long ago because the King owns everything and He can take whatever from whomever and give it to you. A new ‘it’ in fact. A better ‘it’ and paid in full! The enemy becomes frustrated with your anointed demeanor and leaves you alone for a while……...don’t concern yourself though……..he’ll be back and you are more than ready. In fact you are more than a conqueror.



You may be cast down or dismayed, but You Are Not destroyed!


Things may not look like they are going to work out for you this time but you are In Christ Jesus and you are not moved by what you see for you are commanded to walk by faith and not by sight. That is a command not a suggestion. In fact you are designed to live by faith. Your access to the kingdom depends on it. You are born of incorruptible seed. Your progenitor is God Himself and He has given you His Word, His Name, His Blood and His Spirit! What lack ye yet? You have that treasure in earthen vessels and you know it. The armour you are dressed in is scary to the enemy. He doesn’t know who's behind that armor. Your helmet of salvation makes you instantly in the Kingdom of God's dear son. That breastplate of righteousness lets you know that you are made complete in Him with nothing missing and no parts needed. Just wield the power, energy, ability, and authority He has blessed you with. It is impossible to destroy the ancient of Days in you. Grace and peace has been multiplied in you through the hearing of the Word you have spoken with your mouth and now those who hear you are changed through your faith. They are are now speaking the Word of His grace which is now building them up and giving them their inheritance among all them who are sanctified indeed!



You may be living in the flesh but It is NOT you!


Read and listen to this in your spirit:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”  Gal 2:20 (KJV)


You see it is no longer you that lives, but it is The Christ, the living anointed King, living in you through His mighty Words on your lips and heart. No it is no longer you but Him in you. The life you are now living is being carried out by the impartation of the Word and its ability to live in you my friend. To the same measure you give to it will be the measure returned back to you so there are no limits except the ones you put on yourself. Yes we talked about what you are not but believe and know that through the testing of your faith it is all working together for your good because you love God and are the called according to His purpose. So what do you do with that kingdom citizens? Flow.



I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!” Ps. 138:2 (Amp) Classic

Don't Forget Who You Are!

Grace be to you Kingdom Citizens!

May God's peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions, and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in the full knowledge of God and of Jesus our King Lord!


Of his purpose he gave us being, by his true word, so that we might be, in a sense, the first-fruits of all the things which he had made.” James 1:18 Basic English Bible


Let us be reminded child of God as we walk by faith and not by sight in His word that, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. God purposely made us by His Word and if His Word is incorruptible then we are incorruptible. Let that sink in for a minute. If you are born again by receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior then you are family and naturalized kingdom citizens. All those of us who are afraid that hell my be in our future need to know that we are born again of incorruptible seed. Every seed produces after its own kind. That is the law of Genesis. Don’t be confused about who you are. The Spirit of God used the same DNA of God to make you, and graced you to do what He has commanded you to do. To make man, God breathed (Spirit) from himself into man (physical). Everything else He made from the dust of the ground.


And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Gen 2;7 (KJV)


Adam was made in God's image and likeness. The word ‘image’ means to have the moral and spiritual nature and characteristics of a thing. The word ‘likeness’ means to function like God. When a human being doesn’t function like God designed him to function it is called malfunctioning. Man was born for rulership and not religion. God doesn’t need religion. Religion came in chapter 4 after God made Adam in chapter 1 and 2 of Genesis. Those are the chapters that God said, after He made everything that was made, said… “It is good.” Notice the statement “It is good” had no religion in it. Selah.


God functions by faith and love therefore we are to function that way. Faith works by love so then our love-walk keeps our faith life active. If the enemy can lure you into bitterness and strife then your faith will fail to function and you will be in danger of malfunctioning and will be susceptible to sickness and disease. The bible says that bitterness is rottenness to the bone and since the life of the flesh is in the blood, which is produced by the bone, then cancer can be a result of bitterness.


We are supposed to guard our hearts with all diligence because from the heart flows the issues of life. You cannot guard what you do not know you have. Our hearts are the production centers of our environment so faith must be healthy and engaged for every citizen to flow and function as His King creator has so designed us. Look at the king Solomon talk to his son about the heart.


My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Prov. 4:20-23


God has called Himself King of the earth, and therefore His form of Government is called a kingdom. A King owns everything in his kingdom so that makes the king Lord of his territory. Let's look at this a minute for proof.


For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises in a skillful psalm and with understanding.God reigns over the nations; God sits upon His holy throne.” Psalms 47:7-8 (AMP) (underlining my influence)


When you know the way the government acts you can gauge if your behavior will be accepted or not. The Kingdom of God has laws that govern that kingdom and when you know that you have rights and privileges there, you can proceed with confidence if your behavior is right. The king’s word is law, and if the king says to attend to His word and incline your ear to what he says you would be wise to do just that. When the king says to not let His words depart from your eyes and to keep them in the midst of your heart it would be extremely wise to do so. If you think yourself too busy what will happen is that you will begin to make excuses for not performing the assignment you were put on earth to do. This is inexcusable.


Why would God create you for rulership, leadership and to master and control without purpose? Everything God creates has purpose and in the Words of Jesus “Are not you worth more than they.” Matt 6:26. The king tells us why this instruction of attending to His Word is so important. The king says that His Words are life to them that find it, and health to all their flesh. I can’t then believe those of us out there that say that God does not will to heal all who come to him! Obviously they don’t read His Word nor do they know the mind of the king. He (the king) tells us that His Word is life, and health. Attend to that He says. You know when we get our minds on the purpose of the king we then can know if our behavior is right or not.


To not believe healing and health to be God's will is to not consider Him as King but only God who sits on High, and looks Down low. God has given us the knowledge of His kingship for a purpose. The purpose is that we will know how He will govern a matter on the Earth. The reputation of the king is most valuable to him and the same goes for God Almighty! He cares what others think of Him because as a man thinks in his heart so is he. If you are not sure what His will is be sure your faith won't take you any further because faith can only be exercised where the will of God is known!


If you are not sure what the will of God is then consider the will of The King. Why? The reason why is because God chose the king position and the governing kingdom as the way He functions in the Earth. Jesus said to take the gospel of the Kingdom to the world on the earth. This keeps religion out of the picture because kingdom was way before religion. The king’s will is to influence the territory with his intents and purposes to create a lifestyle of morals and culture to its citizens. Sickness, disease and poverty is NOT what he wants to promote because you can’t produce His assignment and purpose if you are sick and broke. This really is common sense but it seems that common sense is not so common! Health care is one of the major components of any government and if our king's government cannot even handle sickness and disease then how can we expect the God component of His Life to take us to heaven and live free from sickness and disease? The same is true with where our financial well being is concerned. If God can’t keep you up while you are tithing then how can He keep you and all of heaven up in the afterlife? If God is failing you here then what makes you think He won’t fail you there? He promises this to you as king…..


Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]—To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).” Jude 1:24-25 (AMP)


Don’t believe the scorners who say that healing is not for everyone and that any other blessing from the king of the kingdom is not for everyone. Believing them (the scorners) will produce confusion and doubt.


Is not this the Carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not His sisters here among us? And they took offense at Him and were hurt [that is, they disapproved of Him, and it hindered them from acknowledging His authority] and they were caused to stumble and fall. But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor (deference, reverence) except in his [own] country and among [his] relatives and in his [own] house. And He was not able to do even one work of power there, except that He laid His hands on a few sickly people [and] cured them. And He marveled because of their unbelief (their lack of faith in Him). And He went about among the surrounding villages and continued teaching.” Mark 6:3-6 (AMP) (Underlining my emphasis)


You have been born again and now you are a new creature. You cannot forget what manner of man you are now. You are born again this way. I am not talking about that famous song either. You are now carriers of the Blessing of Abraham and have every right to be healed and delivered. Jesus has told you to now lay hands on the sick and cast out devils. Jesus told you now that the power to tread on serpents and scorpions and all of the ability of the enemy is yours. What will you do with that? That is God's will, or Jesus went about breaking God's will all over the place because He was healing all, and taught all that healing is in the Abrahamic covenant. In the above verse they were hurt because they didn’t see Him as the One who would be sent from God. To them He was flesh and blood but not holy.


How do you see Him? Do you see Him as your blood brother? Do you see Him as your Advocate? Do you see Him as your covenant keeper? Do you see Him as the One who sent the Holy Spirit to be in you and by your side? Do you see Him as the One seated at the right hand of the Father for you? Do you see Him as King? Do you see Him as a joint-heir?


You are fellow heirs of the same body partaking of the kingdom through the Word. You are the one He paid the price for your redemption and now you can partake of the grace of the throne. You are the natural born citizen of heaven and tongues have been given as your language of that kingdom. You are now blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. You are the one with power and authority to represent His name and reputation. You are the one who has power to take His Word and create the environment necessary for your success. You are the one He told to: ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, to knock and the door shall be opened! You are the one who has a ministry of angels to protect you as you remain a law abiding citizen of His Kingdom.


You are the one with that unique assignment that He equipped you for and will finance. You are the one that if you will be patient for the process of faith to work will see all things work together for your good and those around you. They will know that you truly have advantages they know nothing about, but just be like your king and continue on teaching the gospel of the kingdom. Flow.

Character of Kingdom Faith!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on February 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Grace and peace be to you and peace be multiplied to you via the revealed knowledge of God and His Kingdom which is given to us by faith in His Name!


Last month I talked about Faith for Kingdom life and I trust that it was a blessing to you. I hope that you pass it forward to all that will hear and take time to understand it. This month we are looking into the character of faith which is exemplifed in those who champion the kingdom of God through faith and patience. This is done by revelation of Jesus and what He actually meant when He declared “Seek first the kingdom of God and His way of doing things so that all the things we seek for in this life will be added to us without fail or toil.” (My paraphrase of Matt. 6:33)


A person of Kingdom life will use their faith by priority. First things first. You can avoid many pitfalls in life if obedience is given to the King of the kingdom because He (the king) is then responsible for the outcome of your faith. Remember that Jesus is the author and developer of our faith. Seek first means to seek first. Each day poses problems of its own so our King tells us to take no thought for tomorrow. He wants our focus on faith for kingdom life today. First things first. When you know the mind of the king you will know what His hands are doing because you sought Him out the first thing this morning. Now you move with confidence because you and the Governor (The Holy Spirit) have communed over His Word in prayer and worship. What? You haven’t done that yet? No wonder you can’t see your way through the chaos and ignorance the world is proposing.


The character of faith in a man of the kingdom believes God beyond his or her intellect. He or she does not wait for the hard times to arrive before they start trying to believe God for deliverance. This really shouldn’t have to be said but….God is really great and He’s smarter than any of us. He has set all of creation in motion and obviously knows how to sustain it. So the person of faith in the kingdom of God moves by priorities and the principals God, our source, has set up. This will stop anxiety in its tracks! Hear Paul say:


Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephes. 3:20-21(KJV)


The Word “power” in that verse is the Greek word “Dunamis” and it means the potential to do anything. That power is at work in us as we wield our faith lavishly before the Lord of Glory. Our mind doesn’t need to know everything to walk by faith. Our soul should prosper as we learn of things going on around us but when it comes to God we must allow our imagination to flow free from worry and the kingdom of God is designed to do just that. There may be a problem though that arises that Jesus talks about where effective living is concerned. Jesus named out distractions, issues, and false opportunities that can arise for the Word’s sake. Look at Luke 8:


And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.” Luke 8:14-15 (KJV)


The kingdom of God is here to take you between what I call the Amen and the There It Is. The problem you will face will be the answer from your own mind. Therefore the Word must be the final answer on any subject. It gives you wisdom to protect your journey from your own mind that says… “I can’t possibly see how this or that will happen!” Cares, riches and pleasures can keep us from thinking beyond the box. Faith for kingdom life takes us to our future and brings things in the future right into our present and all our intellect will challenge this the whole way. If you know what the will of the Lord is then you are well on your way to maintaining a stable and consistent faith life. Faith is the currency of the Kingdom of God so spend your faith lavishly today and everyday.


The character of a man of faith in the God of the kingdom will value the worth of the Word of the Kingdom because God has has put His Word above His name. Even if the Word you hear seems too good to be true just know that it is good and and that it is true. You may not believe that you have power to tread over the scorpion and the serpent and over all the ability of the enemy but just put it to the test and you will find it to be true. I challenge you to act it out and that will cause you to believe.


Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16


“The law (word) of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.” Psalms 119:72

The Word of the King is always law. Our job is take that word and make it legislation and policy here on the earth and in the world.


“As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.” John 6:57


Right now you may not believe that devils are subject to you through Jesus’ Name, but be of good courage. Use His name over devils and you will see this to be reality in your life. You may not yet believe that the sick will recover when you lay hands on them but if the Word of the king is big in you, a holy boldness will come upon you and the sick will recover. You may not believe yet that you can call things that be not as if they were but if you know the Word on the matter then you will find yourself imitating God like dear children. You will start speaking to the mountain and telling it to be removed and it shall obey you! I know…. I know that at this point you may start to buck and spit about all this. That’s perfectly okay. You are experiencing what the world of psychiatry calls “cognitive dissonance.” It’s what happens when your religion meets new knowledge and you start reaching back to keep your old teachings because of the various comfort zones you may be in. It's what happens when God's Word hits your ignorance.


And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:5 (KJV)

Paul in the book of Ephesians put it this way:


“This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:” Eph. 1:17-18


Because of the blindness of the heart our understanding can be darkened and we can end up alienated from the life of God and His kingdom. This is a result of a lack of purpose for knowing what the bible is about and embracing religion over kingdom life. Don’t be willing to yield to the thoughts of religion so that you can stay comfortable. Ask the Lord King…..”If that is you, bid me come.” You will find that the water is just fine. The wind may still be blowing and the storm may still be raging but you have a Word from the King that you can live on just as Jesus lives of the Father. Don’t allow cognitive dissonance to be your defense against the Truth of the Word. God’s reputation is on the line for He has placed His Word above all His Name!


I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!” Ps. 138:2 (Amp) Classic Bible


And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14 KJV

Faith for Kingdom Life!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on December 7, 2017 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Grace to you kingdom citizens and royal priests of the Most High!


The Kingdom of God is our inheritance for which Jesus came to give via the Father’s will. Most people are postponing the kingdom until they get to heaven. They who do such things are not honoring God. They are indeed grieving the Holy Spirit and don’t even know it. What we postpone will never be appropriated and we could miss out on our harvest because of failure to recognize it.



The Law and the Prophets continued until John came: from that time the Good News of the Kingdom of God has been spreading, and all classes have been forcing their way into it.” Luke 16:16

- Weymouth Bible



Jesus said that the law and the prophets continued to be preached until John the Baptist, but from that time on the kingdom of God is preached. I am not sure if you noticed but that would include our present time and even after that. So if the church we attend is not preaching the kingdom of God we may want to rethink where to attend meetings seeing how we must obey the Lord if we say you love Him.



And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” Matt. 17:1-5



In the above passage we see the actual changing of the guard between the law and the prophets and the kingdom of God. Moses represents the law and Elias or Elijah, in our language, represents the prophets. Jesus represents the door to the Kingdom and the king Himself. If we are to use our faith for kingdom life we must first yield to what our king says about it. Faith can not be exercised where the will of God is not known and if we have failed to acknowledge the facts about the kingdom of God then faith will more than likely be abused. Faith must be in the King of the kingdom and the blessings will take care of themselves. Remember that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of the things not seen. God the Father is the source of all things so faith in Him is the substance of the things hoped for. In fact the word Father is the word source. Jesus told us to call God our source.



Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.” Acts 3:24-25 (KJV)



Now the kingdom of God should be preached so that people can actually partake of what the prophets saw. Jesus tells us as children of Abraham that we have a right (civil) as citizens of heaven to all the promises of God. He gives us practical concepts to use right here on earth to access this kingdom government. Faith is that tool, currency or power we are to use to engage the kingdom. He showed us over and over how that, by faith, we can access the power to reign in life despite the form of government we might be living in. If we would only listen and adhere to what is being said by the king then we could avoid the stress of worrying whether God will keep His Word or not. We should know what His hands are doing because we know Him.



Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Matt 7:7-11



In the verse above we see that Jesus is showing us how to use our faith. He tells us that everyone who will ask, seek and knock will get results but then He shows us the nature of His source. He shows us that the Father is not out to trick us. He is not trying to show us who’s boss. He is showing us that God will give us exactly what we ask for but that He might send us to seek knowledge first or use our courage to step through the doors of opportunity or in fact use all three methods. I have found that all three have been necessary most of the time. You will always win by doing what our King has said to do.



While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Cor. 4:18



What are we to do in the meantime? We are to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Jesus looked to the resurrection from the dead while He was going toward the cross for our sins so that we might, with joy, engage the kingdom. Faith is 24/7 and 365! We can access it at anytime for free. When I say free--I mean cash can not buy faith. Faith is given to everyone but it is only on the believer. Money may run out but faith is always available and inexhaustible. It may cost you to increase in learning. It may cost you to use your courage at the right place and the right time but if you are willing to be in an uncomfortable place to be in the will of God then you will see all things working together for your good because you love God and because you are the called according to His purpose.



Jesus says that the process of faith is first the planting of the seed then it's the waiting time. First the blade comes up and that can be exciting within itself. The blade must be nurtured and protected. It is the small evidence that the process is working. This should be expected and we should be looking for it. It is different for everyone because everyone is different but you can recall other’s testimonies to help you glean more faith-food to get you through the blade stage. Notice that we do the planting. If you do not want oranges then don’t plant orange seeds. Plant the desired seed. That’s what you are passionate about. That’s the seed you are going to stand through adversity for. That’s the seed that you are willing to be fully persuaded that whatever comes I will maintain my stand for the complete answer. No compromising here. You are deciding that you will not be distressed, in despair, nor forsaken and not destroyed. You know that you have committed this to the Lord and fully expect to see your hope manifested.



Jesus said that when anyone hears the Word of the Kingdom and understands it not then comes the wicked one comes to take away that which was sown. That means that wisdom dictates that we learn more and more about kingdom government and living so we can repeal the efforts of the enemy from trying to make stick to us what we do not want or need. We will need to become established in some things to help us when the storms of life come to snatch the Word of faith from our hearts. We have planted our seed and now it’s the waiting time. You should then be getting ready to put in the sickle when the full corn in the ear arrives.



You can’t do that if you fail to get established on the Word, the Name, the Blood, the Spirit, the Kingdom, the Covenant and the Blessing. You just can’t ask for things from the government of God and not expect to walk in the laws that govern that kingdom. That’s why Jesus said to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the things you are praying for will be added to you without fail or toil because God knows you have need of those things. Walking by faith and not by sight is not for the faint of heart but it is not complicated when you know what the bible is about. Trying to understand faith without knowledge of the King, His family and His will to expand His kingdom will lead you to abuse of faith and result in depression and much anxiety. Be willing to learn and adhere to The Word of the kingdom and things that were confusing to you will start clearing up. Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water which is the Word. Through Jesus, we who are citizens, have access by one Spirit to the Father and the Father gives us the kingdom as our inheritance. I like what Paul says……...



But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ." 2 Thes. 2:13-14



Through sanctification and the belief of the truth we are called by the gospel of the kingdom to the obtaining of the King Jesus our Lord! The Spirit sets us apart for a specific purpose and now we are to use our faith for the grace to reign in His kingdom in this world and the world to come! Flow.



I trust that this Word of the kingdom message has been a blessing to you. Pass it forward to increase your harvest of hope and expand the kingdom territory.

Kingdom Mandate!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on November 14, 2017 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Grace to you child of God and peace be unto all the citizens of the kingdom and the household of God! I am very excited to release this portion of insight into Kingdom of God concepts as we go on to know the will of the king in our lives!


Jesus gave us the will of His Father when he said that...


God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believed in Him should not perish but have everlasting life, for God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.”John 3:16-17



Yes, God sent His Son into the world to save it not to condemn it. Jesus said that He is the light of the world and that He has sent us as lights into the world as His father sent Him. We can allow religion to overtake our thinking to the point where we don’t want anything to do with the world. If the Father sent Jesus, and He did, then as the Father sent Jesus and Jesus sent us then we must go as we were sent. He didn’t say to go and have church! He didn’t say to go and have choir days and usher days and even Pastor anniversaries. I am not against those things. I am saying those things wouldn’t even be necessary if this mandate of the King was obeyed.



And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matt. 24:14



We are supposed to take this gospel of the kingdom into the world as a witness to all nations so that the end can come; Matthew 24:14. Instead we are taking the gospel of the cross, the gospel of grace, the gospel of faith, the gospel of prosperity and without even mentioning what it is all for. The purpose for all of the aforementioned gospels is to bring those to us now through the kingdom of God so that your assignment will be plain to you. When you don’t know your purpose, abuse is inevitable. The purpose for faith, prosperity, grace and the cross is to enable us to experience and colonize the earth with the kingdom of God.



How do we do that? I am glad you asked. When we receive Jesus Christ as our King Lord we are translated into His kingdom and are entered into citizenship of Heaven right then and now. The kingdom has been available to everyone since before the foundations of the world.



Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”  Col. 1:12-14



Now as citizens we must be trained to be kings since we know nothing about kingdom life and this new (to us) form of government. We have been trained to only know Jesus as Savior and Lord and thus we are grateful for the forgiveness of our sin and our sins. That, however, is not the fullness of the blessing. We must come to know Jesus as our Christ the anointed King. Without kingship authority we don’t have the right to use our faith, grace and the cross because all power must be authorized by the King. This is why Jesus said “I never knew you” when people said ‘didn’t we cast out devils in your name and prophesy in your name?’ You see, you need the authority of the King to go about on His behalf. Not knowing Jesus, as king doesn’t profit you nor those of us who are taught by you. Jesus was born king, died as king, suffered as king and was made alive as the risen King by the power and authority of the Father God who is the King.



Without authority you can have all the potential, energy and ability in the world and still be futile where God is concerned.



And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Luke 4:5-8

 



 


You see, Jesus could say get thee behind me satan because He knew you must have authority from God to legally use the “kingdoms of the world” on God's behalf! Jesus knew that satan was an illegal alien holding the keys of man's authority temporarily until the legal one with authority would come to claim what was rightfully His.



But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” Gal. 4:4-7



Now that we are no longer servants but sons we must realize that we are sons of the king via the anointed King Jesus. The king has the sceptre to give authority to anyone he chooses. Jesus was given the sceptre of righteousness to point at anyone He chooses to appoint to either come to Him or go out for Him. Satan didn’t have authority from God to move on His behalf even if he did have the power and the abilities to run governments.



But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Hebrews 1:8-9



Jesus was and is anointed above His fellows plus He has authority to wield that power and assign any delegate or ambassador to go in His Name and speak and do on His behalf. Earlier I asked “How do you take the gospel of the kingdom to the world and colonize the earth?”



Now that we recognize that Christ is King we should quickly understand that this is a matter of state. Now that puts all the acts of the kingdom here on earth where the world is. The world is the governing institutions of man on the earth, and Jesus, as king, has come to speak to these institutions through His royal family. Each family member has gifts, talents and proclivities that the world needs but they must be trained to rule and reign from the throne of God and not the opinions of man. We are called ambassadors as a matter of state. In fact the Secretary of State is the Chief of ambassadors that go to foreign courts and present the will of the President in the USA. Likewise, the Lord Jesus Christ is chief ambassador over the kingdom of God citizens (ambassadors) and we are to take the will of the King to the world and rise up in the ranks becoming the decision makers and policy changers.



The ambassador can never speak his/her personal opinion on policy. The ambassador must only speak the position of the country they represent. Jesus showed us how that was done by only saying what the Father said.



For I have not said it on my authority, but the Father who sent me gave me orders what to say and how to say it. John 12:49- Basic English Bible


Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.” John 5:19-20



That is the position of the State or country from which Jesus was from and He was talking to heads of state who understood that statehood talk. That is not Christianity, Islam or Hindu…..That is Kingdom and the will of the king of heaven. Jesus said that government is here now! Jesus didn’t come to bring religion. He came to bring the will and purpose of the king from His country here. I heard a preacher say that Jesus didn’t come to blend in, He came to take over! Thats a good place to shout right there folks so I’ll wait.



Notice in the passages above that Jesus brought two things to mind. 1. He only said what His Father King said and how to say it. 2. He only did what His Father King did. We have so many church splits because we argue over doctrine, policies, procedures and dress codes! As if we are even allowed to do that in Kingdom government. We have no voting in Kingdom government! We can’t decide who was born this or that way. We can’t change kingdom law and policies. It's either the king’s way or the highway...period. Religion tries to live right so they can go to heaven whereas Kingdom citizens live right so they can keep the kingdom's government blessing on them on earth.



An ambassador knows the difference between kingdom and religion, between culture and rituals, between colonization and fellowship, between access and ownership, between citizenship and membership. An ambassador knows He is fellow heirs of the same body and partaking of the promises in the Blessing through The Word always because his King is good: for His mercy endureth forever!

John 3:16 Revealed!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on September 22, 2017 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (1)

Grace to you today and peace be unto you through the Lord Jesus our King. I trust that you will be empowered and fired up as you look deeper into this powerful verse from the Kingdom of Heaven.


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17


All of my life I have been taught that John 3:16 was the scripture to prove that there was a great opportunity to go to heaven because God was going to save all who believed in Him through Jesus. I believed in Jesus because of that verse. I believed in heaven because of that verse. I could quote verse 16 and 17 at anytime and anywhere even when I was just 4 years old. I would quote that verse when it was time for the children to recite bible verses in Sunday School.


John 3:16 & 17 gives the purpose for God sending His Son and that should be very plain to see. What I didn’t know was that John 3:16 had another view to see it from. I also found that there was much insight to be gained by just understanding the definitions of a few words. I knew Jesus as my Lord and Savior as a young adult and all my training for ministry taught the very same thing. What I didn’t have any knowledge of was Jesus being Christ and what the purpose for His Christendom was. All my time as a Christian I knew I was supposed to teach His Word and help others proceed with confidence in their walk of faith for victory in their lives. THEN... I met Christ! Have you met Him?


The Holy Spirit made things very clear as I learned of Christ. I found out that He was the Anointed One sent from God to remove burdens and destroy yokes but that was not the fullness of the blessing that I have now come to know. God is so good and I know now that He is the great planner of all times and not only that He will bring His plans to fruition through His family. The term Savior speaks to His redeeming work of God's plan to restore man to Himself through the blood and the cross of Jesus our Lord. The word Lord is the word owner and that speaks to His right to claim what belongs to God. The word Christ speaks to Jesus’ position of governing rule which is King. If you’d like to go more in depth about this subject please download our podcast that covers the fact of Jesus as King at KingdomTimeMinistries.org


Once you see that Jesus, as your anointed King you then have access into His kingdom for what king is it that doesn’t have a kingdom and territory? This will help you understand what Jesus’ purpose was and what your assignment is!


The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalms 24:1


First of all let's get a couple of things straight. In order for us to have dialog we have to know terms and what they mean otherwise everytime I use the term you may never know what it is I am actually talking about. The word world is different from the word earth in that verse above. It’s the same word that Jesus used when He said “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.” The word earth is the word Terra and it means the planet with the rocks and minerals and oceans. The word world is the word kosmos and it means the governing systems or institutions of man on the earth. So the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof plus the world (governing systems of man on the earth) and the people that dwell within it! Get it? Let's look at another verse to see if we can understand what satan was offering Jesus.


And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.” Luke 4:5 (KJV)


Kingdoms in the verse above is the same as governing, ruling, royal power or dominion! So satan took Jesus up onto a high mountain to show Him the vastness of the governing institutions that he would give to Jesus if He would bow down to satan and worship him. Now let’s fit the theme verse in here for sake of comprehension.


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17 (KJV)


The enemy was offering something he temporarily possessed not knowing what Jesus’s purpose was really for.


But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” 1 Cor. 2:7-8 (KJV)


Jesus said that God sent Him into the world not to condemn it but to save it through Him. That is powerful kingdom citizens and on point. Knowing this people; what shall we do? Jesus said that He was the light of the world and then He sent us out to be lights unto the same world He was sent. Now you can guess what your assignment is. He told them that they are now the light of the world! That’s the same world that satan was showing Jesus he had control of. Now Jesus has it and has given us power over it!


And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:” John 20:20-22 (KJV) Underlining my emphasis


Jesus proclaimed the blessing of peace and sent them to continue what He was doing. Jesus was and is the Son of God but not the only one now as He has commissioned us to move and groove on His behalf. Even after He had risen from the dead and appeared to His Apostles He kept teaching the Kingdom of God. What a marvelous sight to behold! The Master showing Himself to them with infallible proofs and empowering them to use their faith to walk out their assignments.


Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:” Acts 1:2-3


We are to take the gospel of the Kingdom to all the world. The governing systems of the world are to be invaded by those who know who they are. Religion is one of those institutions we are to invade. The greatest enemy Jesus faced was religion and that’s what put Him on the cross! We are kingdom of God citizens not church members! The world doesn’t even want religion. The world is trying to gain control and that’s what the kingdom gives you….control. Jesus even had a hard time with the disciples because they didn’t believe that others had seem him since He was raised from the dead! He upbraided them and set them back on course. Religion doesn’t have a king because you must do what the king says or else! Religion uses words like prophets and lord. A king is greater than lord and by getting to know Christ it introduces you to The King because that’s what He was born and anointed to be!


Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:14-15


I trust that this Word of the kingdom message has been a blessing to you. Pass it forward to increase your harvest of hope and expand the kingdom territory.

Managing Kingdom Assets! pt 2

Posted by Paul and Loretta on September 22, 2017 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Greetings Kingdom Citizens!

Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and Jesus, The King Lord!

There is a law given by Jesus that “Whosoever has shall be given and to him that has not from him shall be taken away.” This law should really be adhered to as we walk by faith in our citizenship of the Kingdom of Heaven. This speaks to how we manage our lives and how we are to expect our Father to respond to our prayer life. Jesus gave us this law many times in the Word.


And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure[of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force],” Mark 4:24-25 (Amplified Bible)


In the above verse we see that our King uses this law where revelation is concerned. Management of revelation, where the Holy Spirit is opening insight to what has already been there, is vital. In fact it is crucial as to how we grow up in the spirit. Jesus tells us to consider carefully what we are hearing. We must realize that no one knows more about any subject than our Lord and Savior, The King, because He was there when everything was created.


The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deut. 29:29 (KJV)


We must learn to manage revelation knowledge as a Kingdom Asset. Why? If we fail to manage it by not passing it on to our children and our children’s children the revelation will be withdrawn from our family and church. What will our King find when He returns to earth? The Lord even said “will I find faith on the earth?” If He came today what would He find? What does the church look like now? It’s filled with broken homes, bankruptcies, religious clashes, war, depression and disease! It’s not too late as all we need to do is decide who knows best and obey.


But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Hebrews 10:32-36 (KJV) Underlining my influence:


Call to your remembrance when you first received revelation of speaking in tongues and how that made you feel when you realized that experience was a real part of the Kingdom of Heaven? Remember when you first realized that Jesus Christ really was Lord? You manage revelation the same way when you hear the Word of The Kingdom. The first time you heard it, it didn’t dawn on you that the Kingdom of God was for you right now but that it was only for those who died and went to heaven. Then you heard it again and you still didn’t really hear it yet but then…..


Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the wayside.” Matt. 13:18-19 (KJV) Underlining my influence.


You notice The Word is called by our King “The Word of The Kingdom! The Word of The Kingdom is like saying the Word on The Kingdom. If the parable of the sower is for us in the here and now then so is the Word of The Kingdom. Manage that and keep that revelation because flesh and blood did not reveal that to you but the Father which is heaven. Hallelujah!


If you can manage revelation more will be given but if you fail to manage it you will lose it. Whatever you fail to manage you will lose. Revelation will sustain you through good and hard times. Once you got revelation that by the stripes of Jesus you were healed your spirit lit up because now you know that you have an health care system in place by your kingdom government. As a citizen of the country of heaven you have every right to claim your healing. However, just knowing that doesn’t heal you. You must claim it (your healing) as yours in the presence of your enemies. Your mouth must be engaged because that’s where the power is! Now you can manage to pass that onto your friends and family members!


Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV)


Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will bring to our remembrance what He has said to us. That is vital to hearing what the King has said and whatever the King says is law! If it is law, and it is, then it can be counted on and adhered to. To manage revelation is life! To manage it wisely and pass it on is kingdom building. God will always back that up!


Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matt. 5:19 (KJV) underlining is my emphasis


Listen to our King say that whoever does and teach the commandments is considered great in the kingdom. Managing kingdom assets has its rewards! What will you do with this?


Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.” Psalms 119:49-50 (underlining is my emphasis)


The psalmist said that by remembering the Word (revelation) that the Lord gave him was his comfort in trouble. This is how he managed life in crisis and chaos. This was how he maintained through good times and bad. He managed to perform this and his life (spirit) was quickened! Managing the king’s assets well is vital to your kingdom life. Know that.


But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”  Jude 1:20-21 (KJV)


You may be saying…Yes brother Williams, all that is fine and good but I am poor. I do not have any assets to manage. What am I to do? One of the first things you can do is manage your mouth which controls your whole body. Manage to put the Word in your mouth and speak it out loud with your mouth in the first person. For more info on that visit our website @ kingdomtimeministries.org for the 5 Minute Audio lessons that will help you to build yourself up. This way you can obtain some revelation for yourself to manage. Then realize that God has already taken care of the matter of the case of the poor right here:


And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.” Luke 6:20


The Anointed King said that “Blessed are the poor.” Why? Because they have been chosen to have access to the kingdom of God. They have access to the government of heaven with the king’s blessing! Get that please! Stop looking at what you don’t have and agree with the king. Manage that revelation. It doesn't mean Jesus wants you to stay poor. That means to cheer up as the king has your back and has already made provisions for all of your needs. My Government will take great care of you He says.


Give ear, my dear brothers; are not those who are poor in the things of this world marked out by God to have faith as their wealth, and for their heritage the kingdom which he has said he will give to those who have love for him?” James 2:5 (Basic English Bible)


God has marked out the poor to have faith as their wealth and as an inheritance-The Kingdom of God! Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of what you don’t see. Faith is the provision that your new government will bring to you when you make a demand on it. Jesus said that the rich will have a hard time trusting in the kingdom of God because they can see their wealth but the poor have unlimited access to all that the kingdom has because in a kingdom the wealth is common to all it’s citizens! Blessed are the poor because they need only put a demand on the rights and privileges of their government! If you are poor, to the standards of whatever country you are from, you are blessed by the Father who has marked you out to use your unlimited imagination and add faith to it in His Word and bring forth good things!


Hear what our King says about managing kingdom assets. If you fail to manage a little bit, you fail to manage much. That is the law of the kingdom! Instead of bucking the system by not allowing the king to reign over you, join into it and decide to enter into citizenship by obeying the King Jesus!


I trust that this Word of the kingdom message has been a blessing to you. Pass it forward to increase your harvest of hope and expand the kingdom territory.

Greetings Kingdom Citizens


Grace be unto you and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and through Jesus Christ our Lord. God has allowed me to speak from my heart and it feels so much better than trying to fit a mold others have tried to put me in. Take heed that you become who God has made you to be. Walk in the fulness of the blessing for your life and thank you for allowing me to be me.


And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.” Luke 16:1-3


On our podcast we are teaching on the subject “Managing Kingdom Assets” because it is the power to sustain momentum in your favor through good and hard times. There is a law of the kingdom that states that whatever you fail to manage you will loose and whatever you succeed to manage you will not only have more to manage, you will also have abundance. In the scripture above Jesus is telling us of a master that had a manager that was wasting his master’s goods and was caught doing it. The manager was told by the master to bring in his accounting records because he was fired. You see he was about to lose what he failed to manage and he thought to himself “What shall I do because I can not dig, I am too ashamed to beg.”


I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.” Luke 16:4-6


The manager decided to use a tactic that would gain him favor for his boss and himself so that when he was fired he would have habitation until he got back on his feet. What he decided to do was to cut his master's clients bills in half! Now before you jump on this manager’s case let's see what his master said.


And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.” Luke 16:8


The master gave praise to the unjust manager because he had done wisely after he was fired. He used a way to get more accounts for the master because word got out that his prices were the best in town. The manager would have favor in other places because of the deals he had made for others who owed debts. Just think if someone came to you and cancelled half of all the debt you have now? You would be ecstatic wouldn’t you?


Joseph managed well what was put in his hand and that managed to get him out of prison to the palace:


And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.” Genesis 39:2-5


Joseph’s management skills were evident because the blessing was on everything he put his hands to do. If you are in Christ Jesus you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. This means that as a citizen of the kingdom you have access to The Blessing and you should be able to proceed with confidence as you manage what has been put in your hands. The word “manage” means: to administer, conduct, dominate and govern. The more you are willing to administer, conduct, dominate and govern what He has put in your hands, the more God will put in your hands to do and He will equip and finance your efforts. The key is to be willing and then move as He says move either through His Word or through His voice. Managing the assets that are in your possession sustains you through the good and the bad times.


[Put first things first.] Prepare your work outside and get it ready for yourself in the field; and afterward build your house and establish a home.” Proverbs 24:27 (Amplified Classic Bible)


The above verse is like pre-fabricated homes. All the measuring for the basic forms of the home are predetermined. The home is built, in parts, at another facility then brought on the construction site so that the builder simply follows the blueprint and constructs. In the Old Testament, builders would have the stones shaped and blocked before they brought them to the site to build. Then they would have the stones brought over to lay in place so that the whole area would not be filled with hammering and chiseling and all manner of noises. A good manager of kingdom assets shows forethought so as to gain the confidence of fellow-workers who have to flow with the manager’s concepts and strategies.


For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.” Matt. 25:14-15


Here the owner gave his money-managers capital to trade with. He gave them the money to get it started. This is critical to knowing the mind of the Lord. They didn’t have to earn the money, it was put in their charge as he went off to another country. In kingdom governing that meant that the King was going to expand His territory. He distributed the money according to their ability to manage. This will also help us understand the mind of our King Lord. Whatever He puts in your hands He believes that you are well able to manage it.


There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear (manage) it.” 1 Cor. 10:13 ‘parenthesis is mine’

I used that particular scripture to show you that God gives us the ability to manage even in the hour of temptations, trials and tests.


The managers who knew the mind of the Lord went and made the money work and in fact doubled the money initially seeded. The owner commended the managers that did that and gave them ten and five times more to manage. You know the story. The manager, who knew the mind of his master, failed to manage what was put in his hands because he was afraid. Like Joseph and the blessing on him, when you manage well what is put in your charge, the favor of God will be on you. When you are afraid to walk by faith and manage as you have been taught then you will lose whatever you were managing. This is a law and it can not be reversed.


And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.” Matt. 25: 25-29 (KJV)


Adam lost what he failed to manage. Moses lost what he failed to manage. Solomon lost what he failed to manage. Esau lost what he failed to manage. Judas lost what he failed to manage. Even satan will fail what he managed to gain by pushing ignorance into our lives once we regain management through our King Jesus and Lord. In fact the tactic of our enemy is ignorance. If the enemy can keep us unwilling to manage our families, marriages, time and energy he can keep us from walking in the plenty and staying in lack. Just look at what would happen if we could just manage to give to the poor:


Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is he who considers the weak and the poor; the Lord will deliver him in the time of evil and trouble. The Lord will protect him and keep him alive; he shall be called blessed in the land; and You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of languishing; all his bed You [O Lord] will turn, change, and transform in his illness.” Psalms 41:1-3 (Amplified Classic Bible)


See if you can identify all the blessings in this verse just for giving to the poor. Protection and deliverance from your enemies is good enough as we manage the assets the King has given us. It doesn’t hurt either to be sustained, refreshed, and strengthened as trouble comes. Healing is in our government constitution as we give to the poor as well. That verse is loaded isn’t it?


He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?


Hear what our King says about managing kingdom assets. If you fail to manage a little bit, you fail to manage much. That is the law of the kingdom! Instead of bucking the system by not allowing the king to reign over you, join into it and decide to enter in citizenship by obeying the King Jesus!


I trust that this Word of the kingdom message has been a blessing to you. Pass it forward to increase your harvest of hope and expand the kingdom territory.

Receiving Your Authority and Wielding Your Power!

Posted by Paul and Loretta on June 30, 2017 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (2)

Greetings Kingdom Citizens,

Grace be to you and peace be multiplied through the revealed knowledge of God. Thank God for all that He has done for us through the substitutionary work of Christ Jesus our Lord.


This letter is inspired by the news I am seeing on television and the amazing ignorance Kingdom of God believers are displaying to me as I ask them what the kingdom of God is. I never hear a Word on the subject from the religious organizations that broadcast weekly or even daily. It seems to me that since Christians call Jesus their Lord and Saviour they should do what He says to do. Paul was absolutely correct when he said…..


For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:16-17


Paul was using his authority, by Jesus Christ, to use his power in the world on the earth. The word authority means “The legal right to command or act as the authority of a prince over subjects. Power; rule; or sway.” Paul was not ashamed of his king's instructions to influence the world. You can not use authority you don’t know you have. Most Christians don’t know that the kingdom of God is for them today at all. Yes Jesus died for your sins and was raised for your justification. Yes Jesus has blessed you to go to heaven after you die. Yes Jesus has given you the ear of the Father so that you can ask Him for anything in His name and it will be given to you. Yes the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin but why was it done? Was all that done so that you can now endure as a good soldier until the end? Was all that done so that you can shout hallelujah and not get struck down by lightning because of hypocrisy? Was all that done so that you can now go to a building without the sense of guilt, inferiority or condemnation?


Well when you read “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ” as “I am not ashamed of the gospel about Jesus” then the above paragraph is all you will get from the Word. Paul was not mincing words when he wrote the term “gospel of Christ.” That term means “the gospel of the anointed King and His Kingdom.” There is no such thing as an active king without His kingdom. A kingdom is the governing influence of a king over His territory. A king must have territory to rule or govern or he is not a king. A king must have citizens and his reputation depends totally on how his citizens are faring.


As a citizen of the kingdom of God it is vital to not be ashamed of who you are, the gospel that He preached about where He was from and the power granted to you by your king. Jesus was sent here to not only tell us about the place He was from but also to tell us of the fact that we can have access to that place right now in order to dominate our environment. Our king and Lord grants us citizenship and permission to wield our power.


And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;” Luke 22:29


Hear the King on the matter. He has given citizenship to us which is authority and permission to use the dominating power over His territory. Jesus said to the disciples that were wielding their power over demons and sickness not to rejoice that the demons were subject to them rather rejoice that they were kingdom citizens of heaven:


And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:18-20


The king gives us authority to speak and act on His behalf. Our assignment is to take our citizenship to the world and bring heaven to earth to change chaos into peace with The Word in our hearts and mouths. The Master Himself said that He was sent here for this very reason.


And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.” Luke 4:43 (Underlining is my emphasis)


People were filled with sorrow and pain. They were distressed and angry about the way things were going with their government. Isn’t it strange that today when you look around the world that you can see so much of the same thing happening today. Stress is the new cancer these days as it seems to be embraced as something to have for an excuse to get certain medications.


And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Gen. 1:26


Jesus came to give us control over the chaos of the world and its governments. The kingdom of God is the government of Heaven and God rules there but He has given us dominion here on earth. Adam lost kingdom access and was put out of the garden because of it. Jesus came to give it back. The problem is that so many Christians don’t want to be ruled by anyone so they forfeit the very thing they want to go to heaven for…..citizenship. The king demands submission to authority so that we can wield the power that He gave us over the works of the devil. Jesus is Lord but Christ is King and His kingdom governs our lifestyle, cultures and morals by influencing us with His will, intent and purposes. When we teach only Jesus as Lord and leave out Christ as king we remove the power of citizenship away from the right here and now by postponing it until we All Get to Heaven. We can not appropriate what we postpone.


We have been appointed or conferred a kingdom and it is royal. The kingdom is so worth it Jesus said that it’s worth selling all you have to gain access to it. Jesus was telling us that the form of government we are in can not be trusted and that His government won’t break through and steal from you. Do you know any government you can trust?


Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” Matt. 6:19-20


It is not wise to lay up treasures in a country you are not from so our king was telling us to put our treasures in our home nation, the Kingdom of God, so that our assets can be safe from corruption. It was dangerous enough for our Lord and King to even say ‘don’t lay up your treasures here.’ There was already a king in authority where the jews were so Jesus’s life was on the line. I heard this teaching all my life through the religious organizations I grew up in and hearing it now with the understanding of kingdom life I fully understand the ramifications Jesus faced daily. We can’t wield any power we have been granted if we don’t know what authority we have or the components of what that authority is.


That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,” Eph 1:17-19


The Father of glory wants us to know what is the hope of His calling. That means that ignorance is an enemy of our kingdom walk of faith. He wants us to know what the riches of His glory are in the inheritance of the saints. Our wealth is in our inheritance and it must be opulent. The Word riches in the greek language means wealth, money, possessions, abundance and valuable bestowments! Are you ready for that? Are you really ready to read and know more? The Father of glory wants us to know that there is more than enough in our inheritance not to be concerned about most of the things we concern ourselves with. He said that it is in us! Say what? In us? Yes indeed. Let's keep looking at this a bit.


The next thing the Father of glory wants us to know is what the exceeding greatness of His power toward us is. The Word power there means miraculous potential power and that is for those of us who believe. I like to say that the kingdom of God is for everyone but is only on the believer. That power is to the full extent of the working of His mighty power. The Word working in verse 19 is the greek word power but this power is where we get the word ‘energy’ and it is pronounced energiah. So the miracle-working power toward us is from the full extent of His energy. This energy is from His mighty power. The Word mighty is the word power also but it means ‘ability to perform anything!’ The last Word power there in verse 19 is the greek word ‘kratos’ and it means dominion.


So through the spirit of wisdom and revelation God can have us know the wealth that is available to the saints through the miraculous power that is full of His energy to perform anything through His authoritative dominion! In fact verse 19 is indeed the power verse of the bible. This power is all in Christ Jesus or the Kingdom of His dear Son! So God has, through Christ, granted us authority to wield our power over the works of the devil and we need to intimately know this and proceed with confidence. How powerful is that? So in verse 19 alone ‘In Christ Jesus’ we have Potential, Energy, Ability, and the Authority to wield it!


I trust that this Kingdom Faith message has been a blessing to you and like all good things pass it forward to anyone you think this could help. Don’t keep it to yourself. Don’t worry if you think someone will judge you for doing so. Just be great in the kingdom of God.

Royal Privileges in The Kingdom of God

Posted by Paul and Loretta on May 13, 2017 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Grace to you kingdom citizens!

May the blessing of peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit as light of the glorious gospel of the Kingdom dawns on you.

In every nation, especially kingdoms, there are covenants, promises and privileges. The king's family has royal privileges that come with being family. In the kingdom of God if any man be In Christ he is a new creature and behold all things are new. Being in the family has privileges that others do not have. In the kingdom of God everyone is family and all family members have access to the royal privileges that assist us to walk in this newness of life right here on the earth and in the world. Jesus, our king and Lord, tells us how to produce fruit in His kingdom. Now that you know that Jesus has conferred citizenship upon us (if you read last month's faith lesson) we should know how to use the privileges granted us as the royal family. The next scripture gives us great insight on how to lay hold and flourish in His kingdom in a daily manner.


I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” John 15: 1-7


Look at this version of verse 4:

Be in me at all times as I am in you. As the branch is not able to give fruit of itself, if it is not still on the vine, so you are not able to do so if you are not in me.” John 15:4 - Basic English Bible


The word “husbandman” means manager or farmer. The King, as farmer, is always looking to increase and expand his territory. Jesus is God's True Vine for us. As long as we stay in Him and He in us we can ask what we will. The key is to have His Word abiding in us. The Word of the kingdom is the Word of our Lord and as we stay kingdom-minded His kingdom can take great care of us. This is not a going to heaven or hell issue, this is a kingdom of God on earth issue. This is His will kingdom citizens and if we would only submit to His will we will find that God always backs His Word because obedience is the key entering the Kingdom!


I will give worship before your holy Temple, praising your name for your mercy and for your unchanging faith: for you have made your Word greater than all your name.

Psalm 138:2 - Basic English Bible


The Word declares that the Word of God is above His Name. This puts God’s, as king, reputation on the line. When the king's name is on the line you can rest assured that the king will do whatever it takes to keep His name good. God is so good that He put his name on the product! We are His products! We are His workmanship created in the kingdom of his Son! His Word then is a Royal Privilege for all of His family!


For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.” Eph 2:10- American Standard Version


God is the Master and we are the masterpiece. His Word is our royal privilege to use on His behalf and He has backed it with His Name. That makes His name another royal privilege for His family. With His Name we can step into His presence without the sense of guilt, inferiority or condemnation! We are His workmanship of His own will therefore He takes the responsibility of our upkeep. That is why He has given us His kingdom so we can have access to His royal privileges and to go ahead and be who He has created us to be. We are free indeed. His Word and His Name give us access to any component of His Kingdom. He did not stop there.


To make all this legal to satisfy eternal justice God gave us the Blood of His Son. This makes us legal immigrants to flow in the world on the earth because Jesus was given an earth-suit through the womb of Mary. When He spilled His blood anyone with an earth-suit could also have access to whatever He accomplished on the cross.


Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21


I also like this version of that verse:

Now may God who gives peace, and brought Jesus, our Lord, up again from among the dead--even Him who, by virtue of the blood of the eternal Covenant, is the great Shepherd of the sheep-” Weymouth Bible


For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matt 26:28


Now His blood is a Royal Privilege to all those in the kingdom of God's dear Son. All those in the kingdom are Royal Family and legal to use dual citizenship on the earth because we are in the World but not of the world. This should remove all shame from the game. No more is shame on any who professes the kingdom of God because it is legal. Shame is under the curse of the law and we are redeemed from the curse of the law. Now we can walk this whole earth and no matter what government we are in the kingdom of God is the great government we can live by.


The Blood of Jesus is the royal privilege that gives us access to the King of Glory’s covenant of promises! We were strangers from the covenants of promise that God gave Abraham. Through the blood of Jesus, the royal privilege to the covenants of promise are ours to access as family! The King has promised that He would be God to all who call upon His Name!


Remember that at that time you were separated from Christ [excluded from any relationship with Him], alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise [with no share in the sacred Messianic promise and without knowledge of God’s agreements], having no hope [in His promise] and [living] in the world without God.” Eph. 2:12 (AMP Bible)


Now that we are in the kingdom of His dear Son we have no excuse to have a low esteem problem! Why? Because we have access to the Royal Privileges of Family. Let us not be like the eldest brother of the prodigal son who stayed back and didn’t enjoy the privileges of the royal family. Let's not have a pity party about who is being blessed while you see nothing great happening for you. At least the prodigal son went out beyond his borders. He made the mistake of removing himself from the true vine by joining himself to a different country to be a citizen of that country. Jesus said that we must abide in the vine. Don’t join yourself to a different country. You can be there but stay connected to the Kingdom of God. Keep the Word of the constitution in your mouth and in your heart.


A few days later, the younger son gathered together everything [that he had] and traveled to a distant country, and there he wasted his fortune in reckless and immoral living. Now when he had spent everything, a severe famine occurred in that country, and he began to do without and be in need.” Luke 15:13-14 (AMP Bible)


You must remain a citizen of the kingdom of God and you can not do that without Him. You will lose access to your royal privileges. This does not mean being a member of a church. This is citizenship not membership. This is kingdom royalty not religious hierarchy. This is about access, not ownership. We must keep our head up not because we are stuck up or snooty but because we have a royal culture to manifest here on the earth. We are not slaves but Sons! We are friends and brothers of Jesus, not subjects. There are no step-children in the kingdom of God and the wealth is common to all. The rights of royal privileges should be acted upon and delighted in. People will see your calmness in crisis and wonder what you know. People will see that you are not in despair when it looks like there’s no hope and wonder what you see.


We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair; hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone]; struck down, but never destroyed; always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown in our body.” 2 Cor. 4:8-10 (AMP Bible)


You never have that sense of being alone because He is in you. You never have the sense of anxiety because the greater one lives on the inside showing you the Word of the kingdom that you have already deposited and calmly telling you to “walk this way, give to that person, don't approach that person, stand still for now.” Your obedience is vitally key for kingdom life. Oh, if you only knew what you have you would be full of confidence. If you only knew that if you taught others this you’ll be called great in the kingdom!


This is all possible through the joy of what you know from the inside out via the Spirit of God. Access to the Holy Spirit and His indwelling is a Royal privilege. He (The Spirit of God) will guide you and comfort you and show you things to come. He (The Spirit of Truth) is the governing influence of the King and you are His territory. He will never speak of Himself but will speak what He is told from Jesus. It’s like living in the governor's mansion! He will assist you with your new natural language of Heaven (tongues). You get all this and more plus you can flow in it as you walk by faith in the kingdom of God and not by sight.


But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Romans 8:9-11


The Kingdom of God is invisible and yet it is as real as the earth you walk on. The privilege of His Spirit is so vital to kingdom life that Paul said that if you don’t have the Spirit of Christ (The King) that you are none of His or in other words have anything to do with Him.


But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him [and is not a child of God]. vs 9 (AMP Bible)


This brings us full circle doesn’t it? The True Vine must stay attached in order for we, the branches, to flourish and bring forth fruit. This is the law of potential. The seed when planted has roots and the roots become trees that have fruit that have seeds that have roots that have trees that have fruit that has seeds……..


For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Rom. 8:13-14


So there you have a partial list of the Royal Privileges that are yours to flow in. Don’t labor just flow. It should be as natural as being a citizen of the country you now live in. What are they?


The Word, The Name, The Blood, The Everlasting Covenant and The Spirit.


I trust that this Kingdom Faith message has been a blessing to you and like all good things pass it forward to anyone you think this could help. Don’t keep it to yourself. Don’t worry if you think someone will judge you for doing so. Just be great in the kingdom of God.
