KTM FAITH LESSONS
|Posted by Paul and Loretta on November 14, 2017 at 2:20 PM|
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!
