This week we learnt that the of Kingdom of God, though common to hear, is normally not fully understood among some Christian circles. Jesus’ teachings and ministry open to us a world of understanding on this subject and further whets our appetite for life in the Kingdom.  A kingdom we defined simply as a king and his domain (his subjects and his area of jurisdiction). The Kingdom of God is therefore about the King of kings, the Almighty God Himself and His domain which encompasses all of Heaven, Earth and even the underworld.  The believer who finds themselves in this kingdom must abide by the principles and manifests the Kingdom lifestyle. Naturally, this believer produces the fruit of the Spirit- that is love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control and the like.

We also discovered that before the kingdom can be enjoyed on this earth, the Holy Spirit, who is the power behind the Kingdom has to come upon the earth. The Holy Spirit then gives credence and power to the word of God. The word of God then becomes an explosive weapon in the kingdom of God. This is true because what makes a person powerful is His word. We also understood the statement that ‘no pain no gain’ by sacrificing our all at all cost to get the kingdom. The kingdom of God suffers violence; the violence would always take it by force. Finally, we saw that the only way to exercise the characteristics of the kingdom of God is faith. This substance of faith is planted in believers to enable them connect to the Kingdom of God.

Beloved, you are an ambassador in the Kingdom of God. You have power; do not allow anyone or prophecies to run your life. You must be governed by the Word of God. In the kingdom of God, the Word reigns, if you want to reign, stick to the word of God.
