The Kingdom of God is within
A New year letter from the Shoe Ministries.
The great commission to all believers is to preach the Kingdom of God.
It has come to my attention that most people don’t know where the Kingdom of God is. “The Kingdom of God is within”. Jesus stood on earth and said he was in heaven.
Ephesians 2:4 says we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. In Hebrews 12:22 “We are citizens of heaven”. Just to name a few scriptural examples. How can this be? Some say heaven is to the north of the earth and others that we will someday live in heaven but we are in hell right now. So many traditions and religions that make the word of God of none effect.
“But the kingdom of God belongs to children” (Luke 18:16).
When God came to earth in Genesis 65, He saw that the imaginations and thoughts of men’s hearts were continually evil.. For this same reason, He gave Noah the task of building the ark so that only he and his family would be saved as the flood commenced and wiped out the entire population of the earth. These three words describe that most important part of man where God should live, inside man. In the imaginations (1) and thoughts(2) of the heart(3). This shows that the physical heart is only a pump while the heart is where imaginations and thoughts abide that are of such importance to God.
We give our hearts to God after which we guard the heart from all evil. Proverbs 4:22.
We guard our hearts from our original state with which we were born. The carnal fleshly state is our stubborn pride that is the original sin of man.
Mark 7:21-23: “For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man unclean.”
These things ruled in our minds naturally until we gave our hearts to Jesus. Our imaginations and thought of the heart were full of the above-written things until Jesus saved us. Yet the struggle goes on daily, we follow Jesus and we lay down our lives. Luke 9:23 Jesus teaches that we should die daily and so does Paul. Why is this necessary? So that we can become less and He becomes more. We die to the flesh and we rise in the spirit. In this way, we have the Christ mind that is a heavenly mind. The imaginations and thoughts of the heart become heavenly as our thoughts remain only above. Only the cross and the blood of Jesus can keep us above. You see we find sanctuary in heavenly places daily, as the fruit of the spirit becomes the fruit of our lives. No longer hampered with pride and selfishness we now truly love God and our fellow man because we are saved- we want everyone to be saved……
All of this is wonderful but there is one more step we have to take and this is the point of this letter. YOU HAVE TO WALK IN THE POWER OF CHRIST IN YOU!!
There has to be a place where we make faith confessions. For instance, when you have security issues go to your security room where you stand on the mountain of Zion before God and all of heaven where you decree that your house or business is surrounded by a great wall of fire that no murderer or thief or liar can penetrate. Then close the door of that room with the blood of Jesus for there is now a place within you where you have made a faith confession and everything you SAY will be exactly the way you say (Mark 11:23 – 25).
Follow this link to get the free booklet on the Twelve Room Prayer, which teaches you in a practical way how to pray and confess the word of God in your life.
Do not think that you are being arrogant; you are doing the works of God. You are calling the things that are not, as though it were. If you have a finance problem, go to the finance room and call money, make a decree before all of heaven that you will never ever struggle without money again. Then you go and do the things your hands find to do and stand on your faith confession. Do not back down! It must be exactly as you say because these testimonies of the way you live by faith will glorify God. This is the power of God that is being displayed within you. It works the same way with your healing. Go stand before God and say that you will never be sick again and then stand against the work of Satan. You must speak out with your Christ authority, you are doing the things Jesus would have done. Always remember to do it in the name of Jesus. Speak out loud, declare that you are a son of God and your name is written in the Book of Life, say you are blood washed and your sins are forgiven and speak all the Word you can find in the Bible because the Word is life and you will see that you are the blessed.
