KTM FAITH LESSONS

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.
