Lessons for Life
Our blog articles uncover the pattern for guaranteed success found in scripture. Read the posts below and begin living the successful life you were created for.
Everything we do has a Kingdom application and a Kingdom functionality. Wherever we are, we are to represent and to birth the Kingdom into those situations. We are to present the face, the plan and the Kingdom will of our God everywhere.
The Kingdom is where the power, the authority, and the dominion of Heaven reside on the earth. The Kingdom is the government of Heaven. This is where we go to access all of Heaven on the earth. Just as Jesus explained in His miraculous acts, He was engaging His Kingdom realm while He was on the earth. We also must engage His Kingdom realm. There is no other way.
Faith is the currency in the Kingdom of our God. Our acquisition is through our Faith. Faith is the imagery we create, and imagery that we see and what we confirm in our imaginations. We must believe and we must trust completely in what He and His Word declares to be true and to be accurate and we must present it to our mind (imagination) until we internalize the reality in our spirit.
In last week's blog, we discussed the fact that it has been our Creator and Designer's plan all along to replace the present unworkable systems of this world with His Kingdom System. How will this come about? "...'Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!'” -Hebrews 12:26 TPT
In last week's blog, I mentioned God's amazing promise that His Kingdom System is to replace the order and the ungodly systems that dominate our world today. Let's examine this a little further.
The Kingdom of God operates as a realm (a different level of reality) and as a reign (a more powerful rule and authority). This realm and this reign represent a greater power and a higher authority than the present realm and the present authority of this present tangible world in which we live.
The Kingdom of God has been described as “God’s total order, His total provision and His complete system and answer” for all of humanity’s needs. The Kingdom is presented and expressed as a higher realm or a greater dimension of reality than the realm we experience daily on our planet, the earth.
How important is our connection with this higher realm for our engagement with the greater authority that is there for the success that Jesus described, and that Jesus taught was to be our life experience now? It is essential. We cannot achieve the success we are designed to enjoy unless we engage Heaven and Heaven’s realm.
Can we engage this power and this authority to impact our situations, our circumstances, and our relationships now to bring them into alignment and into agreement with what our God says about our earthly experience? Yes, yes, yes.
Jesus changed those who heard Him and who believed in him, who accepted, and who engaged in His message. He changed them radically. How did He change them? At the sound of His voice another dimension and its greater authority were engaged, and the reality of this present world and humanity’s present world experience were changed forever.
In everything He did, and everywhere He went during the time while He was on the earth, Jesus personified the Kingdom of God through His representation and through His embodiment of the values, the principles, and the demonstrated precedents He displayed. Jesus modeled and represented the Kingdom of God vividly.
The message of Jesus was completely and totally about the Kingdom realm, and the dominating power and conquering authority that are contained in this dimension that is provided to humanity by their having access to this dimension. We have access to the realm that Jesus operated in. He was declaring that this access was and is now available on the earth.
