Because My Kingdom has never been on earth, it is all new territory that is inhabited by enemy forces and must be dealt with by you working together with My Spirit, Numbers 33:53.
Fear will be your biggest enemy. Fear of loss, loneliness and personal inability to endure. These three enemies will demand your total dependence on an intimate relationship with Me. Everyday will lead you into a more dependent state. When you reach the impossible situation state, you will begin bringing full glory to My name. As people see you living an impossible life, they will know that only I could be the one sustaining you, and keeping you in a place of victory, as you take new territory.
You must be willing to leave all, and risk all, for Me to make you a kingdom pioneer, but the reward is greater than you can imagine. “Truly I tell you, there is no one who has given up and left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for My sake and for the Gospel’s who will not receive a hundred times as much now in this time – houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life,” Mark 10:29-30.
Fear of loss and being left with nothing will be your greatest enemy, as you fight nation wide religious mind sets and risk everything to obey My voice. As you preach and teach kingdom you will be labeled a heretic by the western church by in large. I will put you in impossible situations, that will cause most Christians to quit, in order to display the power of kingdom living and kingdom citizenship.
Loneliness will set in as rejection continues, because no one wants to make waves, that may effect their pay checks. Kingdom citizens enjoy talking about the kingdom, finding those who understand and are interested will be rare, so conversations will be few and far between as you take new territory one soul at a time.
The fear of your ability to last and endure to the end against religious, financial and situational giants in the land, will be your greatest battle. Over and over you will cry out, LORD I CAN’T HANDLE THIS! but you will, as My Spirit empowers you.
Speaking in Tongues will be one of your foundational tools as you pass through your many valleys lying in the shadow of death. You will pass through the fire but it will not burn you! You will pass through the waters but they will not drown you! Do not fear a thing and you will see My glory eventually cover your world, Numbers 14:21.
