Your place in the Kingdom
There are two main Kingdoms that we concern ourselves about; The heavenly Kingdom, and the World Kingdom. Let me rephrase, there is one Kingdom to be concerned about and the other we just need to be made aware of.
First, the heavenly Kingdom is where God resides. It is operating already, the way that a Kingdom should. God is the King and he has business. He thinks, strategies, makes decrees, laws, and gives out orders. He is a planning King and a creative King. He has advisors, ambassadors, knights, a royal court, and servants. He has everything that a King should have. His Kingdom is unified and strong. He rules justly, with love, with grace, and with mercy.
The adversary, (also known as Satan, Lucifer, or that lying serpent the Devil) also has a kingdom. His kingdom is the World. He will not be a just ruler, and he does not love you like God loves you. His Kingdom goal is to get spirits to worship him forever on this earth. His ultimate goal is to reign with us as his servants and to keep us away from our kingdom inheritance. Why? Because he became very jealous when he found out what God’s plan for us really were. He was very jealous and did not agree with the Master artist’s painting strategy.
Remember, there will always be those people who stand behind you and say “I don’t like it!, I don’t get it!” But know and understand this: anything that goes against God’s plan is considered to be evil. I know that our definition of evil warrants images of witches flying on brooms or stirring cauldrons, however, evil means it is not for God’s purpose. If something is not for God’s purpose, then it is good for nothing.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor; wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
The world is not for God’s purpose. It uses man’s selfish nature to bring worship to the love of wealth. This love of money then enslaves the mind to work for it all the days of man’s life. Instead of man working for God’s purpose, he advances the world agenda. This is evil.
God is telling me right now that there are levels in heaven. It is a city of different planes. What you do on earth today is going to determine your access to the different levels of heaven. You will also be completed in heaven. You will still need to grow in your eternal purpose. We are learning in this age the mindset, the currency, the language, the laws, and the culture of the Kingdom. We don’t want to stick out like sore thumbs for eternity. We must get ourselves together in order to learn our place in the kingdom.
Imagine what the heavenly Kingdom looks like? Imagine what it smells like? What will your service be in the Kingdom? What will you be in charge of? What can God trust you with? Meditate on this all day long. Have faith that what you imagine will come to pass.
