Three Key Kingdom Dynamics

Jesus delivered the Kingdom through a new exodus, a new return from exile & by returning to dwell amongst His people.
He dwells with us & in us through the Spirit (John 14:23; Romans 8:12-17).
As a result of that His kingdom ministry now continues through His people.
A people passionate for the kingdom (Matthew 6:33) who persistently pray (Matthew 6:9-10) for it to come in power.
Passion combining with prayer to lead us to practical action.
The people of God declaring & demonstrating the Kingdom of God.


And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven ]is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Matthew 107-8

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14

There is always an imperative for the people of God to be Going (Matthew 28:16-20).
Jesus sent forth His first disciples & He now sends forth us.
Each one of us is authorised & anointed, equipped & empowered through the Holy Spirit
Through words, works & wonders we make known the Gospel – the good news of Jesus.
As the kingdom comes salvation, healing & deliverance will break forth.
Heaven’s justice, joy & peace comes to this earth.

Our passion inspires & drives us on. Prayer prepares the way.
Practical action must then follow. We GO in Jesus name.
As we go, we must be faithful to proclaim & the demonstrate the kingdom of God.
Proclaiming Jesus in mission & ministering in His name & power.
Witnesses to the world. Starting locally & moving globally.

The Kingdom of God advances as the people of God GO.
Forceful (people with serious intent) men & women laying hold of it (Matthew 11:12).
We must be prepared to spiritually battle against the world, the flesh & the devil to see the Kingdom come.
The message of Jesus & the Kingdom of God are the hope for the world.
You & I are tasked with making it know.
Let us go with courage, conviction & confidence for there is power in the name of Jesus.

Amen!


For Reflection

  • How ready & prepared am I to GO?
  • In what ways have I experienced & encountered the power of God moving through me to others?
  • Meditate upon our assignment to declare & demonstrate the kingdom of God..

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the power that You have invested in the Name of Jesus,
And for the great hope that the gospel & kingdom provide & deliver.
Jesus thank you that You minister to me & through me,
To make Your Name & the Kingdom known.
Holy Spirit lead me & guide me to declare & demonstrate the kingdom,
Help & strengthen me as I make Jesus known.
This I ask in, & through, Your mighty Name.
Amen
