Luke 21:32 says that it is the pleasure of the Father to give you the kingdom. It is the easiest thing to become part of the Kingdom of God just by giving our hearts to Jesus. He does the rest. He fills us with His Spirit and begins to teach and guide us into all knowledge as He satisfies our souls and makes us like watered gardens, (Isa 58:11) like springs of water that never dry up. He gives us His peace. The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds but becomes the biggest of all the herb-bearing trees.
The Kingdom of God is within the heart of man. To have the Kingdom within is wonderful but it must grow as we grow in the knowledge of the power we possess in Christ Jesus, Eph1:17.
To be a Kingdom is to be the king of that kingdom with the authority that we have in Christ. The purpose of Jesus coming to earth was to bring the Kingdom into the earth through us. The same Spirit who rose Christ from the grave is now in us and quickens our mortal bodies. With Christ in us, we no longer live, Christ lives in us. [Gal 2:20] This is the message of the Bible.
Why is all this so important to God that He gave His only begotten son to be crucified and rise again to sit at His right hand?
Acts 2:34: “The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand and share My throne, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet. (Ps 110:1)
See Jesus is no longer healing the sick but we do it in His name. Jesus is the Word but He is no longer speaking it. We are the ones who are speaking the written Word, the same power that was in the Word when He created the universe is still in that Word. If we speak that Word of God it is in our mouth and then it is in our heart. The heart is the Kingdom of God and we speak God’s Word from out of the Kingdom in the heart; believing that those things which we say will come to pass and be exactly as we say. (Mark 11:23)
Jesus is waiting for us to make His enemies His footstool. The enemy is our unbelief. Pride is the original sin and pride does not only exalt itself against God it can also be our false humility. We do not believe we can do what Jesus did. We do not believe that we can be Godly because of our humanity. God has gone to a lot of trouble to place Christ in us. God’s enemies are the wickedness we see in the world. If we are not going to take up the authority God has given us in Christ the wickedness in the world will never be dealt with. We have the authority to bind the pride and arrogance in ungodly people.
Mat 18:18: “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
If we do not speak the Word of God the power of God in the Word cannot bring forth life. It is our duty to speak God’s Word and believe that we shall have whatever we say. I know there are people reading this letter with personal problems caused by the pride and arrogance of accusation, judgment, and criticism of other people. Bind the works of Satan in those people. You have the authority. Make sure that your conscience is clear by using communion. If you have anything against anyone, go fix it and then crucify that wicked arrogant spirit. See that wicked thing that God hates, hanging there on the cross. Claim that soul for Christ and speak life to the person but crucify the wicked spirit. When the problem comes back into your mind, bind that wickedness in the name of Jesus Christ and apply the blood of Jesus against it, and cast that thing under the feet of Christ who is waiting for the enemy to be under His feet. Do not stop! Do this until you have your breakthrough and it will bring glory to God when that soul bows its knees and acknowledges that Jesus Christ is Lord.
As I said, God is not going to do it, if we don’t do it that person will never change. Perhaps it is a physical problem in your body. Speak to it, tell it what the Word of God says about it. These things are from the enemy and it must obey you because Christ is in you.
So let your New Year’s resolution be to take up the Authority you have in Christ Jesus and bring His Will and His Word into being in the earth. Let us decide to speak the Word of God into every situation and get victory over it.
