Glory of Spirit Kingdom Living
Glory of Spirit Kingdom Living
The most glorious, peaceful, and fulfilling life of joy
on earth is life in the kingdom of heaven on earth. The glorious kingdom of God
and His righteous way of life is now available on earth. The radiant peace of
pure holy LOVE flows from heaven to bubble up from within the hearts of God’s Spirit
people. (John 7:38-39). The deep river of Spirit life flows effortlessly into
the hearts of His people cleansing every spot and smoothing out every wrinkle,
healing every wound, removing every disease and darkness of the soul, and
restoring our spirits to His Spirit, His heavenly life becoming our life here
The fountain of His life becomes as springs of living
water from deep within that flows out from His people becoming a river of life
to cleanse, hea, and deliver the earth restoring the world to the kingdom of
God on earth as it is in heaven. (John 4:14). There is no other plan of God;
there is no backup idea or plan B.
All other plans perpetrated by man and the devil are
doomed to fail. (Mat 5:13). There is nothing that man can build apart from God
that shall stand. Even the cunningly devised mixtures of building using the
name of God and seeking to employ His kingdom principles without Him and His
love will eventually utterly fall to the ground and be burned into ashes. A life
or a nation built upon the foundation of the name of God mixed with the ways of
the fallen world will crumble. (Mat 7:24-27).
A NEW CREATION
The true kingdom Spirit River of the pure holy love of
God is bringing forth a new earth and new heavens around the earth, filled with
the glory of God and void of the false kingdom of darkness. Yes, the same
Planet made new just as a person’s life filled with Christ Jesus by the Spirit
of God is A NEW CREATION, so this world and the heavens around it are becoming
a new creation. (2 Cor 5:17). As JD King recently wrote, “God is making all
things new, He is not making all new things.”
The Word of the Kingdom
The word of the kingdom sowed into the world is changing
the people and the world. The word of the kingdom is good news. Jesus is the
Word. The preaching of the gospel of the kingdom that Jesus proclaimed and
demonstrated absolutely without exception changes the world. Jesus did not just
preach the gospel of salvation. He really did preach and demonstrate the gospel
of the kingdom of God on earth. (Mat 9:35). When the Spirit finds good ground
enough to receive the seed of the word of the kingdom and it begins to grow,
life as it was before absolutely cannot continue unchanged. (Mat 13:18-23).
The life structure and understandings - both natural and
religious - of our past life cannot carry or sustain the word of the real
kingdom. Jesus spoke of this as putting new wine into old wineskins and said
that it would not work, but the old wine skin would burst and all the new wine
would spill out. (Mat 9:16-17).
Not everyone will receive and grow the seed of the word
of the kingdom to maturity.
Those who cannot or will not receive and grow the kingdom
seed in their hearts will reject, despise, and greatly fear those who are
growing the kingdom seed. They will usually abruptly separate from them or cast
them out from their local congregations. The devil will raise up strong
opposition to seek to kill, steal, and destroy the word of the kingdom and all
who carry the seed of the real kingdom of God. (John 16:2).
In the time of transition religious leaders often fear
the pure love and the word of the kingdom flowing from the humble people
carrying the seed of the kingdom. (Acts 5:33, 40). They may see them as threats
to take over their church because the people are drawn to their love and word
of the kingdom in them. Political leaders will often see them as a threat to
the nation and their structure of governance. They will join the effort to
either marginalize the kingdom people or wipe them off the face of the earth.
Thus the entire world is divided into those who possess
the true kingdom and those who do not and will not. This is why Jesus said that
he had come to bring a sword of division. (Mat 34-36). He also said that the
kingdom suffers violence and violent men take it by force. (Mat 11:12).
The devil does not oppose all religion but always opposes
the real kingdom of God.
The devil is not strongly bothered by a gospel that only
proclaims heaven after death and not in this life, because this allows him and
his people to continue to steal, kill, and destroy in this life now in the
world. (John 10:10). The gospel of the kingdom that brings forth heaven and its
ways of life into this world puts an end to the works of the already defeated
devil in this world.
The devil is also is not bothered by a watered down
powerless presentation of the kingdom as only having been in the past or will
be in the future. (2 Tim 3:5). It is the proclamation and coming forth of the
kingdom of God now on earth in the people of God that will appropriate the
finished work of Christ Jesus for the total removal of the devil and his false
kingdom from Planet Earth. (Col 2:15) (Luke 10:19).
THE SNARE OF NATURAL WISDOM
Many today who have heard the word of the kingdom are
struggling with disappointment and failure, because the old wine skin of
natural wisdom and understanding into which they received the word of the
kingdom is bursting and spilling out. Perhaps one of the most difficult places
to be is to see and taste the real word of the kingdom and then not be able to
fully enter it or to sustain it.
If this is you, be of good cheer; the answer is here and
God has not abandoned you forever. For many people life has become unbearably
difficult and painful. If the glorious life of the kingdom seems unreachable or
unsustainable; it is because the old wineskin is being discarded or crucified
that the new order of life in the kingdom can flow into a fresh new container.
Yes, you may have thought that had already been done when you turned to Christ
Jesus as Savior or when you received the baptism or fullness of the Holy Spirit
life of Christ or at some other point. However, the strong wineskin of natural-mindedness
has never been completely dislodged from its hold on your life.
The natural mind simply cannot receive and grow the
Spirit Kingdom forth in our hearts and lives and subsequently into the world
Most of us have been so trained in natural mindedness and
so called “rational understanding,” that the Spirit reality cannot be fully
seated on the throne of our lives. There is a vast difference in Spirit wisdom
and natural analytical reasoning in which we have been trained through most of
our education to employ and trust in our lives. This way of natural life is
erroneously employed and applauded in most western Christian religious training
and secular educational systems. (1 Cor 2:14) (1 Cor 3:19).
Because the Spirit of God has been removed from secular
education, a spiritual vacuum has been created and the devil has crept in to
fill that void with the ways of the kingdom of darkness and through it is
killing, stealing, and destroying the children of our world.
The real kingdom is like a wrecking ball to our old
Hearing the word of the kingdom in the framework of our
natural understanding always wrecks our previous lives in our old wineskins of
mixture of the word of God and the ways of the fallen world. God is waiting for
His people to turn from their past religious and natural mindedness to the
Spirit life of becoming one with God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. His
pure love is cleansing us of our past and filling us with the glorious wisdom
of His Spirit life of LOVE, righteousness, peace, and joy. (Rom 14:17).
It is an all or nothing deal that we are facing. God is
patient as we come through a process of realizing that the kingdom of God is
all or nothing. Our God is a consuming fire. (Heb 12:28) (Deut 4:24).
Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit is the power for our
change. Our part is to decide to allow our old life to pass away and seek God
and His kingdom with our WHOLE HEART. (Mat 10:39).
Mark 12:30: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all
To be Spirit-minded is life and peace; to be naturally-minded
is death and strife. The choice is to lay our lives upon the altar of the
Spirit of God and not upon the altar of a religion or of the natural mind, but
only at the altar of God by the SPIRIT. The life of Christ Jesus by the Spirit
will become the life within us and our old lives will no longer stand in the
way of the fullness of the brilliant light and love of the kingdom of God to
truly be our only life in this world as it is in heaven.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is
life and peace. Romans 8:6.
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord,
beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with
all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in
love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond
of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as
you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one
faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is
above all, and through all, and in you all, Ephesians 4:1-6.
