KTM FAITH LESSONS
|Posted by Paul and Loretta on February 27, 2017 at 5:20 PM|
Grace and peace from God the Father and Jesus our King Lord! I hope you have experienced kingdom life in the year 2016. I vow to stay with all of you who partner with our ministry. We have seen so many different ways our King’s governing influence has moved on our behalf as we claimed everything we had in our possession as His. We rebuked the spirit of ownership that this democratic government has produced.
We encourage you to take on a component of a kingdom which provides you the benefit of what you possess is His and rebuke the spirit of ownership. This attitude will free us from worry big time and bless us to have faith for today! In fact let me spell it out for you as this was not in my notes. One of the components of a kingdom is that the King is always Lord. The king owns everything in his kingdom and has full access to everything in his territory. If the king owns everything in the kingdom then all the citizens are stewards of the kingdom and not owners. The upkeep of all property is the owner's (King’s) responsibility! You should be getting this by now and in fact if you’d like to shout a little bit go ahead…. I’ll wait.
If the responsibility is on the owner then all the steward does is alert the king that there is a need in the kingdom then the government takes care of the upkeep. Like Jesus said to His disciples when He needed a ride for the evening’s inauguration ball; “If anyone should ask why you are losing the ass just say the LORD (owner) has need of it.” Now you say when that need arises: “Hello God. We have a need in the kingdom. Dispatch the help we need for this or that in Jesus name.” Now put the worry of its upkeep behind you.
The king looks bad when you look bad. If you are doing the work God sent you to do, which is to rule your circumstances with royal power and sovereign influence, then as kingdom citizens access to the governor (The Holy Spirit) is unlimited as you assume the role of ambassador. What would you be able to do in this federal government of ours if you had unlimited access to the governor of your state? Think of all the power a governor has in a state. He or she is a little president. Now think if that governor is the Holy Spirit of God’s kingdom. How much access to what God is thinking and what powers do you think are granted to the Holy Spirit? What would be impossible to the Holy Spirit? Now think about His indwelling in you. Now you can understand this verse.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” Eph. 1:3
We are truly blessed of the Lord (owner) who graces us with His authority and honor to carry His Word and the Spirit of the King. We can truly know that our government will take great care of us. We do not have to beg. We need only to use our faith and believe in our hearts by confessing with our mouths! The governor will guide you to this truth for you to act on from the inside out which is the way the kingdom of God influences people to turn from darkness to light. This is how we turn from ignorance to revelation knowledge. We can compare spiritual truth to spiritual as our constitution tells us.
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” 1 Cor. 2:12-13 KJV
Look at this version…….
“This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.” NIV
Our governor is on the inside explaining kingdom life to you as you are taught kingdom words! This is kingdom influence. Indeed this is the power of kingdom life. Our governor wants us to know the things that are freely given to us of God. Religion wants to make it all a complete mystery held in the dark dungeons of the religious hierarchy. No way brother. Not today. Today it is given for us to know the mysteries of the kingdom and to dominate our environment with faith-filled words from our King.
“And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.” Luke 8:10 KJV
Take a look at the NIV:
He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, "'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.” Luke 8:10
The kingdom life is given to us through revelation and not outside information. Knowledge of the secrets have been given to us, His citizens, and wisdom to use those secrets come from the governor of the kingdom. When we are behaving like we are still citizens of the world then we are abusing our citizenship and are behaving as aliens of the commonwealth of our government.
“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:” Eph. 2:12
Paul says that there was a time when we were without the King and the wealth that was common in His kingdom. We had no covenant to claim and no way to expect anything good. In fact we were without God. We should not continue to act like we have no governing influence to help us navigate through this life more effectively. How sad it must be for God to see us grovel in the muck and mire trying to get a healing or a job or clothing.
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 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
He that has an ear to hear please glean from the Master and King what He completely expects from us. Do you want to be called least in the kingdom? Not me. The king's word is law and Jesus, our King, has the same right of honor. Treat His word as law and His kingdom will treat you like the royalty you are and will withhold nothing. In fact no good thing will He withhold from them who walk uprightly. Don’t walk in the counsel of the ungodly nor stand in the way of the sinner, nor sit at the seat of the scornful. Meditate on the Word day and night and you will make your way prosperous and have good success. In fact in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy path! Any questions?
