GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

Before we move further, let's get an understanding of the word "Kingdom."
What is it about?
In understanding the concept of Kingdom, it is needed for one to have the Kingdom mindset. A kingdom mindset knows what the kingdom is and how it functions down here on planet earth. In accordance to Oxford dictionary meaning, the Kingdom is the spiritual reign or authority of God. During Jesus' ministry on earth, he illustrated to us what his kingdom is.

Jesus never preached or taught on healing. He never held programs to raise money. Jesus was obedient to his father and stayed on course with the message. Everywhere Jesus went, people were delivered.
Jesus focused more on his teaching about the Kingdom and he gave parables to better communicate his speaking into the minds of his listeners.

WHAT DOES THE SCRIPTURES NOT SAY ABOUT THE KINGDOM?
1. It is not a geographical realm with clearly defined boundaries, such as those that separate Nigeria from Benin republic and Ghana. The Kingdom, therefore, is not to be identified with any one nation or political body Luke17:20-21.

2.The Kingdom of God is not that place we call heaven - at least not yet!

3. The Kingdom of God is not the church. The church is the people through whom the reign of God's presence and power is made manifest.

4. The Kingdom is not a place. It is not a static thing, but a dynamic and living reign.
It is not an issue of land, but of Lordship!

5. The Kingdom is not about material prosperity but prosperity; "All other things shall be added unto you"(Matthew 6:33b)


WHAT DOES THE SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT THE KINGDOM?

1. The Kingdom of God is the presence of powerful lordship of the person of the King himself: Jesus! John 18:36

2. The Kingdom comes wherever Christ is acknowledge. It is known and seen as his subjects are saved, his enemies vanquish, and his ways are obeyed producing the Kingdom life!

3. The Kingdom of God is anywhere, anything, anyone over whom Jesus Christ exercises lordship.

4.The Kingdom is in power and not just in words.

5. The Kingdom is the King reigning in men through our hearts and minds. Luke 17:20-21

CASE STUDY:
Looking critically to the book of Daniel, we can essentially connote the graphical picture of this everlasting kingdom known as the kingdom of God.

Daniel was a devoted man and a man of influence, who was unsatisfied with what easily diverts men's attention from God.
He was a respected, influential entity in an empire that can be referred to as the Utopia of the world at that time; Babylon.
This man filled with burden, navigated into eternity and stumbled on something so vast and ambiguous. His prayer caused ripples in the spirit of the most powerful man at that time; King Nebuchadnezzar and this led to a dream that dived across time (Daniel 2).

In this dream, we see an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance which represented Empires and Kingdoms of men. Expatiating on the figures, we are going to see what each of these parts of this figure represents:

1. The head of Gold: Daniel 2:38, tells us that this head of Gold, was Nebuchadnezzar (Babylon).

2. The chest and arm of silver: Daniel 2:39, this part reviewed the Medo-Persian Empire. This empire was glorious in its time, it was also known as the Achaemenid Empire (550BC- 330BC). This empire was forged by Cyrus the great; its domain spanned over 3 continents: Asia, Africa and Europe.

3. The belly and thigh of bronze: 
Daniel 2:39, this part represented the Greek Empire (Greece). Movies helped to capture a myopic, graphic picture of the beauty of the Greek culture.
Ancient Greece is considered by most historians to be the foundational culture of Western Civilization. Greek culture was a powerful influence in the Roman Empire, which carried a version of it to many parts of Europe. Ancient Greek Civilization has been immensely on language,politics, educational systems, philosophy,sport (Olympics),art,and architecture of the modern world.

4. The legs of Iron: Daniel 2:40; And the fourth kingdom [Rome] shall be strong as iron, since iron breaks to pieces and subdues all things; and like iron which crushes, it shall break and crush all these. You see that the fourth kingdom that emerged was the Roman Empire. Rome was as strong as iron, it broke nations and subdued them; As iron wears out as it breaks things, so as Rome was broken as it broke nations. The once great empire of Rome was broken into fragments known as the feet of iron and clay.

5. The feet of Iron and Clay: Daniel 2:41-43; Reveals to us that the legs of Iron was divided into feet's of Iron and Clay. Roman Empire was divided into 2 parts/provinces: Western Roman Empire and Eastern Roman Empire. From these provinces encompasses the Eastern Roman Empire, Kingdom of Italy, Kingdom of the Visigoths, Kingdom of the Vandals, Kingdom of the Romans, Kingdom of the Moors and Romans, Alamannia, Armorica, Sub-Roman Britain. Countries of today that were parts of the Roman Empire are Algeria,Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Hungary, Italy, Jersey, Liechtenstein, Libya, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Tunisia, United Kingdom, and Vatican City.

Looking from Daniel 2:44-45, we see that a stone cut without hands, descended upon this statue, and destroyed it and then this stone became a mountain.

Daniel by revelation, told us that this stone was the kingdom of God that later became the mountain that filled the whole earth. Notice that the kingdom started out as a stone, like a small seed that men in their own understanding will see insignificant, but this stone grew into a mountain which was immovable and it filled the entire earth.

There is a kingdom that wasn't built by man, but by God. Jesus said, "I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18)

There is an eternal kingdom and it calls for men of all status to be a partaker,men who are ready to align to bring this light to every sector of the economy. Jesus said,"Occupy till I come." (Luke 19:13)

The question is, Are you a kingdom ambassador ? Are you a dispenser of his glory? The spirit and the bride say, "come."

Remember; the law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. (Luke 16:16)

There is a CALL unto the Kingdom and not religion; will you listen and heed?

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 1

John 12:24
[24]Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 


There are depths in the spirit just as there are depths in the soil. Death in the Bible verse above represents an interaction (of the seed with the soil).

Nothing grows by itself. Whatever will grow must interact and be interacted with.

The seed (you) interacts with its environment (God) to bear fruits.
Thus, there are two keys of interaction;
1. The object to be planted (the seed - you),
2. The environment (God).

God is the ultimate environment of our spiritual nature and we are so constituted by God that we cannot interact without him.

God is the environment and not the object!

Google is an aberrated system of God to teach men that there is a system in Him that can help men search out the realities of God, the very deep things of God - a system of interaction and knowing the heart of the Father.

But, a generation will never…

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do the commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Any man that keeps the commandments of God opens himself up to the right to the tree of life that he may find himself eating of that tree.

There is a force of creation, and one of the factors that you must get correctly is COMMANDMENTS.

Commandments are God’s word to a man. They are the very element used by God to make covenants with men. It is the first dimension in the ordinance cycle.


What then is ordinance?
Ordinance is simply the embodiment of the codes of creation. It is ordinance that makes LAWS.
DOWNLOAD AUDIO MESSAGE ON SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE 1
There are two dimensions of laws.
1. Spiritual laws and
2. Natural laws
These two dimensions merge into what is called PRINCIPLES.

Principles are bodies of laws (spiritual and natural laws) with God's integrity on them.
Everything is built by laws; governed by principles and activate…
