How can we rearrange our priorities of life to seek first The Kingdom of God If we don’t really know what The Kingdom of God is and what it is not?
How will we know what and where to look?
And how will we know if or when we find it?
Jesus gave us a big clue about The Kingdom of God when he added the words “His righteousness” to this verse,.
“But seek first The Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you,” Matthew 6:33 emphasis added.
God’s righteousness is not our own righteousness. The Kingdom of God involves God’s righteousness in us.
Jesus also said to His disciples that The Kingdom of God was within us. The Kingdom of God involves His righteousness within us.
In Romans 14:17, Paul spoke of The Kingdom of God as righteousness, peace, and joy IN The Holy Spirit.
The Kingdom of God is not something we do or don’t do; it is in The Holy Spirit within us. It is the life of God in Christ within us by The Holy Spirit.
God’s LOVE and LIGHT is the substance of the LIFE of Spirit God literally flowing into us and through us to rule in the world. Without The Holy Spirit there is no kingdom of God on earth.
Without the fullness of The Holy Spirit operating in our hearts and lives we cannot even see the kingdom much less begin to walk in it and bring it forth on earth. Natural man must be born again of the Spirit to even see The Kingdom of God. (John 3,5-8).
Christ, the true King of this world is now in this world by The Holy Spirit of God in His Body of believers on earth. (1 Corinthians, 3:16-17, Colossians 1:27, 2 Corinthians 6:16).
This pure holy revelation coming forth in the people of God in this decade is the source of the unprecedented change taking place now in our world.
The darkness is relentlessly striving to stop or at least slow down the LIGHT and LOVE of God from redeeming the kingdoms of this world to their rightful “King of kings and Lord of lords,” Christ Jesus.
This season is now the focal point of the culmination of all the differences of all wars and all strife of all the ages of this world.
This is the season of the resolution of disorder on planet earth. All history past present and future is coming to a head in this season.
This is the reason for which Christ Jesus was born of a woman, crucified, resurrected, seated in heaven, and returned to earth in The Holy Spirit to live in His collective body of many sons and daughters in this world.
The decade of the 2020s is only the early stages of the transition from a world ruled by darkness to the world ruled by The Kingdom of God.
The Rule of Darkness Through Natural Mankind
The natural man is no match against the power of the spirits of darkness. The devil and his demons do not fear fallen mankind and are able to easily deceive and manipulate unredeemed human beings who do not possess the light and love of God in Christ Jesus within them by the fullness of The Holy Spirit of God.
The kingdom of darkness has had free reign over multitudes of human beings who do not have the power of Christ formed within them.
The powers of darkness including Satan and all of his demons are completely defeated by the work of Christ Jesus.
Believers who abide in Christ and who have the Spirit of Christ abiding in them by The Holy Spirit have authority over the powers of darkness. (1 John 4:4, Luke 10:19).
The New Earth
The rushing might wind of the LIFE of love and light of Spirit God released into the world by believers is the power and wisdom to dissolve the works and ways of darkness from this world. (Acts 2:2).
God is sending powerful holy angels to work with the people of God to obliterate every enemy of God in this world and restore the world to its intended state of the rule of The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. (Isaiah 2:10-21).
The born again fully redeemed and restored mankind is called a new creation. In the same way the redeemed and restored world is a new creation. It is all by Christ Jesus the reality of glory in this world. (2 Corinthians 5:17).
As we pass through the valley of the shadow of death, The LORD like a good shepherd caring for His sheep will see us through. It is all things that are not of God that are being destroyed.
The LORD is our Shepherd who will lead us to green pastures and still waters and keep us from all fear of evil even in the midst of the great fiery dissolution of all that is evil on earth. (Psalm 23).
The pure holy seed of the purified people of God will pass through the narrow gate into the broad spaces of the glory of The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The LORD is speaking to us of these things that we be not overtaken by the intensity of the abrupt changes of this season that we have now entered.
This is the great hope of the world. The coming of the fullness of God on earth. Many of us will fulfill our time and our part before the fullness is fully manifested.
It is with great joy that we can look into the Spirit realm and become aware of the things of The Kingdom of God’s fullness beyond this now transformative season of the end of the old and the establishing of the new.
Some of you reading this will remain to fully experience the fullness of the manifestation of The Kingdom of God on earth in your lifetime on earth. Yet, we all can experience it now within us as the righteousness, peace, and joy in The Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Father God, for such a wonderful life and beautiful world filled with the LIGHT and LOVE of Your LIFE now and forever.
Be made whole in His love,
