The Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God is where God has dominion, it is where He is sovereign.
The Kingdom of God includes every realm that is under the complete rule and reign of God. The realms of heaven are under the sovereign rule of God as well as the earth (Ps 103:19; Ps 47). The Kingdom is governed by the very nature of God, such as; Love, peace, righteousness, and justice (Rom 14:17). It is full of creativity, wisdom, joy and life. There is no death, lies, arrogance, deceit, or hatred. The Kingdom is eternal, which means it is ‘now’ as much as it is future (Ps 145:13).
The Kingdom Invading Earth
The Kingdom of God is invading the earth through the sons of the King.
The earth has been given to man to have dominion – it is his domain, given by God, to rule in a way that reflects the greater Kingdom of God (Ps 115:16). After his resurrection Jesus declared, “All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me” (Matt 28:18). Jesus had won back authority over the earth from Satan (Rev 1:18). What was lost in the Garden of Eden had now been recovered by the first-born Son, the first of many who will come after Him (Rom 8:29). Now the sons of the King are exercising their God given mandate to have dominion over the earth and bring the atmosphere of heaven to earth (Matt 6:10).
God’s Invasion Strategy
Heaven has invaded the believer, who becomes and agent of change on the earth.
As a believer you are seated in heavenly places with Christ – you are in the Kings domain (Eph 2:6). You carry the Kingdom within you (Lk 17:21). Wherever you go, whom ever you speak with, whatever you do, you influence the world around you with the atmosphere of heaven. The Kingdom is infiltrating every sphere, wherever believers are in society. From political leaders to scientist, business people, social workers, entertainers, educators, mums, dads and children. Every Kingdom carrying believer is invading the world around them with hope, love, peace, and joy as they destroy the works of the Devil just like their big brother Jesus (1Jn 3:8).
The Kingdom is not limited to the Church; the Church is only part of the picture (Matt 13:1-52). The Kingdom is much more expansive and far reaching than our Sunday services or prayer meetings. The Kingdom is advancing wherever you go.
So 'go' into all the world, pulling on the resources of heaven to conform the earth to heavens likeness (Mk 16:15). It is the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom (Lk 12:32)- it's what the world has been waiting for!
