The Kingdom Of Power How To Demonstrate It?

The plan of God is for us to rule and to have dominion here on earth, to effect Gods will and purpose, by establishing and demonstrating His Kingdom, and its power, here and now!

 Luke 17:20-21  20 Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you."

 THERE ARE QUESTIONS WE NEED TO ANSWER  FIRST:

  • What is the Kingdom of God?

  • What does it have to do with you and with me as a believer?

  • What does it have to do with my needs, my calling, and my purpose?

  • Why did Jesus put His Kingdom within us?

  • How can one be armed and able to move in power in the Kingdom of God?

    When we say Kingdom of God, it is the Greek word “basileia” (bas-il-i-ah) which means the “Government of God”, it also means the rule and reign of Christ; it is the foundation of Gods power, it is where His power is manifested!  Everything and everywhere the King rules is called dominion or territory – it is the place where the King has influence and where His will is being done!

    When Jesus was to end His Abba Father prayer, He said, “For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever, Amen!

    These are the three elements of Heaven:

  1. KINGDOM is the Government of heaven,

  2. POWER is the Ability of that Kingdom,

  3. GLORY is the Atmosphere of the Kingdom!

    When we pray “Your Kingdom come”, we are asking that His Government, His Influence, His Rule, His Power and His Glory to fall into our territory -- our lives, our families, our church, our cities, our nation!

    When we pray “Your will be done”, we are asking that God would effect His Government in these territories through His Power!

    Acts 1:3 After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the Kingdom of God.

    Jesus spoke more about The Kingdom Of God, than He spoke about the Church, 69 times – His last teachings to His disciples before He went back to heaven was about His Kingdom!

    Jesus only spoke about the church twice, first was when He would build it, (Mat.16:18) and second was when there were quarrelling going on (Mat. 18:17)!

    Luke 17:21 says:   “The Kingdom of God is within you”

    Every time Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God, there are five things that could not stand in His presence: sickness, sin, demons, poverty, and death! They always flee!

     Jesus is telling us that we should not be looking for a physical structure where we could find the Kingdom, for it is right inside of us, its address is your person! If the Kingdom of God is “within us”, then, these five things we mentioned should not be able to stand or to rule in our lives!

     From Genesis to Revelation, it has always been, and will always be the ‘will’ of God to bring His Kingdom and demonstrate it here on earth!  Many Christians want to go to heaven, but Gods mandate is to bring His Government here  to earth, we were misinformed!   We have been taught that the purpose of God was to bring us all to heaven, although that is true, it’s not the whole truth!

     The plan of God is for us to rule and to have dominion here on earth, to effect Gods will and purpose, by establishing and demonstrating His Kingdom, and its power, here and now!

    The plan of God is to build His Kingdom through the Church – to establish His Government everywhere through you and through me!  But the problem is; many have that Church mentality instead of the Kingdom mentality;   The church mentality is often contained and limited, often just within her own walls;  But a Kingdom mentality is an “expansion mentality”, the Kingdom of God must expand!

    Sadly, many today know more about their organization or church structure than the Kingdom structure of God; that’s why there is no Government of God, this always result in chaos and confusion!

     If we don’t have a Kingdom mentality, we can never be used by God in these last days because we are in a poverty, sickness, lack, get rich, and quarrelling mentality! And sad to say, this is the condition of many churches today!  The Kingdom of God is not subject to the Church of God, but rather the Church is subject to the Kingdom of God under the headship not of a Pastor or Bishop, but under the Headship of the King of Kings!

    We have come to a period in history when everything is being speeded up by God, but many are unable to catch up with what God is doing today!

     Why is it hard for many to be where God is today?

    It is because many have an earthly mindset instead of having a heavenly mindset!

    James 4:4 You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

    Col 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

     We all need a renewing of our minds!

    What is the difference between the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God?

    When we say The Kingdom of Heaven, we are talking about the place where God lives, where He rules the universe, where He makes His decrees – nothing happens in heaven and in earth until heaven declares it! The Kingdom of Heaven is the place of Gods Throne is, it is where Jesus is seated on His Right side, and where the Holy Spirit dwells! It is where all the decisions are made to rule this universe; this is where The Triune God decided to save you and me from all our sins!

    But The Kingdom of God is different – it is His will and His dominion being exercised and fulfilled on earth as it is in heaven! The Kingdom of God is the extension of that Throne on earth, as it is in heaven!

    Wherever or whatever place on earth that the will of God is being exercised and fulfilled, that place is The Kingdom of God! If you want His Presence, His Influence, His Love, His Power, His Wisdom, His Blessings to come into your home, your family, your children, your business;

    If you want heaven on earth…

    DO THE WILL OF GOD!

  • OBEY THE WORDS OF GOD!

  • THE POWER OF HIS KINGDOM WILL MANIFEST;

  • IT WILL BE HEAVEN ON EARTH!

    When the will of God is not being implemented in your home, then it is the enemy’s will that is happening there! There is sin, fear, lack, and even poverty, there is no peace but there is constant strife, there is no order, only chaos and confusion – nobody wants to stay in that house!

    But the moment you do the will of God, everything will begin to change, the atmosphere will be renewed – there will be joy, peace, love, understanding, fellowship – you will have heaven on earth!

    I WANT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN MY LIFE!

    HOME!,  FAMILY!,  CHURCH!,  BUSINESS!,  COMMUNITY! ,  NATION!

    WHAT ARE THE QUALITIES OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

    John 18:36 Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."

    The Kingdom of God is not of this world, it’s from another place – that means it’s not natural, its Supernatural, it is more powerful and it is invisible! The Kingdom of God that is within us, is not from this earth, but from another world – it is above and beyond us! That’s what ‘Super’ means; above and beyond!

    If that government lives within me, that means I am above sickness, above recession, above depression, above poverty, above crisis and lack! It doesn’t mean there will no more battles – there will be – but you are above and beyond any battle that you may encounter, we are assured of victory!

     1 Cor 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.      

     1 Thess 1:5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.

    P O W E R!

    P O W E R!

     This is what this generation needs, this is what they are looking for! They don’t just need words, they need power – demonstration! We need power to be able to live holy and righteous lives!

    “Sawa na ang mga tao sa puro salita; sawa na sa corruption, sawa na sa mga buwaya na puro sarili lang ang mahalaga!”

    You don’t have to be a Bishop, or a Reverend, an Apostle or a Prophet – the Kingdom of God is within you – you only need to be updated, regenerated, activated for His power is already in you!

    You can pray for the sick, the poor, the demonized, the oppressed, the depressed, because you are above it, you have the power and authority…

    YOU ARE A GENERAL IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

    When you pray “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done” a war happens, there is a collision in the heavenly realms! The VICTORY has been assured – we are more than conquerors! The assurance comes because you are a child of the King, you are a citizen of heaven! Heaven is backing you up!

    CITIZENS OF HEAVEN!

    A GENERATION AFTER GODS OWN HEART!
