The Year of the Kingdom
Revealing Keys; Unleashing Heaven!
The Embassy of Heaven!
Luke 12:32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Matt 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Ps 115:14 May the Lord give you increase more and more, You and your children. 15 May you be blessed by the Lord,Who made heaven and earth. 16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s;
But the earth He has given to the children of men.
Ps 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell therein. 2 For He has founded it upon the seas,
And established it upon the waters.
What is God’s original purpose for the sending His very own son Jesus Christ to die for us? Many will say that it is because He loves us so much and this is true! Is our goal as a human being on earth just to be saved and wait for the rapture or is there something more that He is has ordained for us?
To really know the truth, we must first understand His original purpose! The bible is very clear that He rules in heaven and He has delegated the rule on earth to us! That was the reason why He created Adam and Eve – to exercise dominion over the entire created order.
The plan was to have the Kingdom of Heaven begin in the garden of Eden and from there to penetrate the entire earth with His rule and to fill the earth with His glory!
But because the first Adam failed, the last Adam Jesus Christ came to restore that which was lost by the first Adam. What was lost? The Kingdom of Heaven on earth! Jesus came to restore this Kingdom to us – those who choose to believe Him and become adopted as the sons of God! The Church of Jesus Christ is simply the Embassy of Heaven! We are sent to earth as Kingdom Citizens to extend the rule of heaven on earth.
We are called to release the culture of the Kingdom of heaven on earth! When this happens, everything will change! That is why Jesus said that He will come back when the gospel of the Kingdom is being preached in all the nations! What we are doing here in Thailand is simply in fulfillment of what Jesus taught us to pray, “Your Kingdom Come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven!” Amen.
