Kingdom People

"For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.' Isaiah 6:5. To capture a vision of the kingdom truth is to catch the vision of the King Himself. All understanding of the kingdom of God begins in knowing, in seeing Jesus the king. "Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord (Hosea 6:3) That I may know Him (Phil. 3:10) Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up and the seraphim declared holy is the Lord of Hosts and the whole earth is filled with His Glory. When we see Him, His glory fills OUR earth. We then are able to show forth that glory wherever we go. We pray thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. We must allow His good pleasure to give us the kingdom. We do this by acknowledging that every good thing which is in us in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6 tells us that the sharing of our faith is effective by acknowledging that. The wise man built his house upon a rock. That is kingdom principles. Which are simply Christ in us, the hope of glory. Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, adds all the promises of the kingdom to us, but we must believe that what He said is true.

He said that He had made us holy and righteous in His sight. Colossians tells us that we were alienated in our MINDS. He has redeemed us into the full stature of Christ. In order to walk in kingdom power we must believe what He says about us.
We have allowed condemnation to keep us from performing the works of the kingdom. For too long we have said we are unworthy or not good enough to work for the kingdom. We have not prayed enough, fasted enough, etc. Not true! He said we are righteous in His sight, through the blood of Jesus only.

Faith is the key to all the kingdom. We have to press in through faith. "Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached and everyone is pressing into it." Luke 16:16 By pressing, the word indicates an urgency and determination. The gates of hell cannot prevail against us. We are more than conquerors in Him. Every where our foot steps, we carry the kingdom. We are joint heirs with Christ and have all the capabilities that He had. All Heaven backs us. As all heaven backed Jesus.

Please realize that the precious blood of Jesus is not to be taken lightly. By saying we must do more to be holy is doing just that. We are to live a holy lifestyle, yes, but Christ in us is how we do it. Not of our works, but His.

Let us renew our mind to His precious Word and allow HIM to come forth in us.
