God has a reason and a motive to why He does what He does. Everything God does is for a purpose. There is a motivation behind all of God’s creation. God made everything and everything has a source. If you take a plant out of the soil and set it on a table you have removed it from its appropriate environment. When something is not in its right environment it begins to die. It’s a law. Take a seed and sit it on a window seal and it will not do anything; but put it in the right environment, the soil, and it will sprout. So God made our bodies out of the dirt and our bodies require things from the source it came from which is the earth. So our bodies need oxygen, food and water from the earth. Even when we leave the earth for a little while during space exploration we have to take part of the earth with us in order to sustain the body. We can see this clearly and is a revelation to us. God also made our spirit, in the image and likeness of God He created it. Just like the body must be connected to its source, the earth, to live- so must our spirit be connected with its Source, God, to live. When we disconnect things from their source they begin to die immediately. It may take some time for this to become evident… but the effects of this separation will manifest. They manifest in our own lives and can be seen clearly from our current state as a society. We need to be reconnected with our Source and with His kingdom. LORD, may Your kingdom come, Your will be done, ON EARTH, as it is in Heaven.
In January 2011 we went to Dominican Republic to do mission work. Our focus this trip was on a small area known as “Little River”. We were able to feed almost 200 families and make a difference in many lives. Most importantly the gospel of the Kingdom was preached!
Colony • a group of people sent to a new land in order to influence and impact the settlement with the culture and ways of the parent country from which it was sent and is subject to.
Are you demonstrating the ways of Heaven in your life? Can people see you and know you’re from another country?
There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.
NASB (Emphasis Added)
What laws do we live under? The laws of God? Or do we overrule God’s laws with man’s ways.
If you’ve kept up with our video lessons, you will know we have been studying on the “purpose of prayer”. I haven’t been able to do another video yet on prayer because the Lord has really been speaking to me about obedience. Without obedience we drift into sin because we violate God’s laws and our prayers cannot be heard because of iniquity.
There is a dangerous teaching that must be addressed and only those who really want to be citizens of His kingdom will hear instruction. Jesus said “If ye love me… keep my commandments.” The question is… why are we not?
Because of grace?… ahhh but grace is misunderstood. We define grace as if it is the opposite of law.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
The problem lies with our misunderstanding of law. See there are two laws. There is sacrificial law which was abolished with the coming of Jesus and there is the laws of God which never change. The law said we should die because of sin but God gave us grace from the condemnation we were born under so that we could live.
Live how? If we are under grace why can we not just rob all the banks, covet our neighbors things and take what we want, commit adultery and kill anyone we don’t like? …after all we’re not under the law we’re under grace… Does that make sense? No.
Grace in the Greek comes from the word “charis” where we get “charismatic” which is ability.
So what has He given us ability to do? To walk in newness of life, to be forgiven, to become a holy vessel unto Him.
He did not give us grace so that we can… continue in sin perpetually without consequence. Where did we get this definition? A judge grants you mercy not so that you can do whatever you want, but so you can be given the ability again to fulfill the law. You cannot decide to become a legal law abiding citizen when you’re still a convict. You have to come before the judge and plead.
Thanks be to God Who gave us grace, not to make a mockery of His kingdom, but to be out from under the law, the judgment we deserved, in order to be able to continue in His grace forgiven for the old and being obedient to His commandments.
I have a video I will be shooting this week and will have it online shortly afterward. I pray His knowledge will bring revelation to your spirit and awaken His purpose in you. The Lord is calling His people to return to Him, to return to His ways, His laws, His commandments and experience the full weight of His kingdom in our lives.
-For the Kingdom
Continuing with the study on the purpose of prayer, we dive into scripture that will bring understanding to God’s purpose for mankind for communication through prayer. This lesson will help you to begin understanding, why should we pray?
Many will read this title and think they know what this post is about- but most will be wrong. The question I ask is not about Heaven or Hell but about Heaven or Earth?
So where are you going? I think I need to clarify this question some more. I ask this question in the sense as when you get ready and head for the door and your wife, husband or family member asks “Where are you going?” This question implies ‘You know you belong here so why are you trying to leave here?’
Christianity has become a “Ready to Leave” mindset- so I ask again “Where are you going?”
Actually this does not only apply to Christianity but to many other religions. The Muslims who sacrificed their lives on 9/11 did it because they thought they would leave earth and go to heaven. Many Christians believe they get saved so that when they die they can leave earth and go to heaven.
The bible consistently points to God’s purpose in placing humans on earth in order to impact earth with the culture of the country of heaven until earth becomes just like heaven. Is this false doctrine? Look what Jesus taught the disciples when He was asked how to pray.
So if God is so purposed in putting us on earth- why are we trying to leave so bad? Why did He not keep us in heaven to begin with since we came out of God. (John 1) If that’s, where most believe, our ultimate goal is?
Why did David say “the heavens are the Lord’s but the earth He has given unto man”?
Why did Daniel see in the end times the Saints with a kingdom where they would rule forever?
Why did Jesus pray to the Father about the disciples “Do not take them out of the world but leave them in the world”?
Why does the New Jerusalem city come ‘down’ from heaven to earth?
Why do the meek inherit the earth… and not heaven?
Why if God wants us in heaven so bad does He make a new earth?
Religion makes us lazy cowards and that’s not a kingdom mentality. God put us here for a reason. He heals your body naturally and supernaturally because He so committed to His purpose. He HAS to have you on earth in order to use you- so maybe the question should be-
Why do you not want to be used?
We pray “God use me!” then we say “Lord, hurry and come and take me to heaven.” How confusing is this- God’s thinking ‘Well which is it!?! Do you want to be used or leave earth?’
Study God’s word. Does your prayers and beliefs line up with the kingdom of God?
So how is life currently looking?
Are you above or beneath? Are you the head or the tail? Are you the lender or the borrower?
If your apart of the colony of the kingdom then you’re supposed to be above, the head, and lenders only… ONLY!
So- if you’re in the kingdom and you’re not above, the head and lenders only- Get ready for change- because your status is illegal in the kingdom so something has to change.
If you don’t expect that- don’t expect anything to change. If you expect to be broke, enjoy being broke. You activate your faith for what you believe. But my prayer is
“LORD, LET THY KINGDOM COME, LET THY WILL BE DONE- ON EARTH– JUST AS IT IS IN HEAVEN- THROUGH ME AND IN MY LIFE.”
In this lesson we study when the bible says the kingdom will come. Is the kingdom now? Where is the kingdom? We also take a look at the prodigal son parable. Who are you? Are you the prodigal son who has returned and received gladly what your father has given you? Or are you the religious elder son who has been saved a long time but never takes on the purpose your father meant for you to have?
