The Kingdom Come
The King of all things desires to rule over this earth – in every aspect, and in every life. But He will only rule as He is invited to rule. True Christianity is the living representation, and invitation, to that Ruler’s rule. The world should see in us what they first saw in Jesus – and when they see Jesus, as He really is, they cannot help but be drawn to Him (see John 8:28; 12:32).
Every human being was designed to live in relationship with God – and we were purposed to rule over this earth, under the canopy of Our Creator’s rule over us. We were always meant to be the physical outflow of His spiritual will, expressed through us. This was lost and broken when sin entered into this world. Jesus came to restore that which was lost – to bring us all back to our original design and purpose.
True Christianity is the restoration of that original design and purpose.
All this is made possible by the all-encompassing work of our Savior and Master. He not only came to provide for our liberation, but also to show us what our liberation would bring within us. Jesus is the firstborn of many brothers (Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 15:23). He came and initiated what the rule of the One True King could be within those who would devote themselves to Him.
All Christians are the recipients of this divine handiwork, provided through The Christ.
We are brought into the Kingdom of God to know, love, and serve the King – and to live in the fullness of His favor and blessing. We, who have embraced Jesus, and His work, are in God’s Kingdom to know and learn His ways, His will, and His purposes – so that we can reach out to those souls who are enslaved by sin and selfishness, and bring the loving rule of the One True King into their lives.
We belong to Him, to be the living demonstration of Who He is (His immense love and immeasurable power) just as our Lord demonstrated to us. We belong to Him, as He always intended, to bring the rule of the Creator-King to this earth. We are the King’s sons and daughters. We wear His Name. We are empowered with His Spirit. And we are instilled with His message – a message of divine deliverance, healing, and purpose. We are the emissaries of the King – just as our Lord before us. We are anointed to carry on His work – bringing the rule of the King wherever our feet may carry us.
