Kingdom

:a country,state, or territory ruled by a king or queen. 2. the spiritual reign or authority of God.

The above are the definitions of the said ‘Kingdom’. It can be either a physical area of various sizes to be ruled by a king or queen. Or it can be a ‘spiritual reign or the authority of God.

Do you ‘see’ the difference?

There are two main ones that we will discuss. The first one is the ‘location’ or the physicality of the ‘kingdom’. One is an kingdom on earth of a small or large land mass of an kingdom authority by one has the ability to rule over the area. It is one of a human king being self elected or by ruthlessly taking over land with subjects in them to rule over them. It will most deniable going to be in either case not a good king if he had to force his way into the position.

The other kingdom is of the Spiritual realm in which a deity is seen as the one of Kingly rights. In this case God is the one that is touting his reign of authority and supremacy over the whole earth. It is foreshadowed in the ‘God of the Creation’ that has built the Kingdom before time was time. This reign is not of this world, considering that it per-existed before time and creation, so it was of another matter. One of a ‘Spirit’.

Now for the second difference. The first one is a place where there has been conquered land, that has been won by an army of a king, and his announcement that as the king of this army and conquest of this land, He is the king of all of it. It is one of a seen land, a place of human form of the essence of a human’s accomplishment. The end of all things to accomplish, the height of all things to be or want. It is an organization of humanity to bring it together as one. But is it?

Spiritual reign, now this is different. This is from an outside source, not of his own ability, but of one of higher power or of a God, or both. God’s reign is of Him. Every piece of his fiber of God is what he stands for and is, is being represented in his Kingdom and His image of a King. It is what the Kingdom is also. Everything. Every part of the Kingdom oozes the Spirit of God in his Kingdom.

Now, when we use these illustrations of a ‘kingdom’ it almost seems like we want a ‘kingdom’ but we want to build it they way we want to in our image of a human kingdom? but why? Isn’t the ‘Kingdom God’s’, and did he not say that He will build it!, mainly he makes it in His own essence and Spiritual way, and not of the way of man and his ability to crudely make an ‘kingdom’ and everything that comes with it.

Man cannot rule by a Spiritual Authority, only God can.

God’s Kingdom, is designed for an ‘Eternal Purpose’.

Man’s Kingdom, is designed for ‘sinful humility’.

Worship

This is the ‘one’ word definition of the Gospel.

Who do you Worship?

God is overthrowing satan in his authority here on earth*, and God is taking over. Period.

*Revelation 12.9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

“Created” takes over?!

This title could be used as a great movie title for a lot of movies in our world.

It is always the creator’s creation that seems to come to life and  assumes control of the situation or even of the ‘world’ to cause havoc on the world. It will always comeback to bite the ‘created’ in the back-end to no avail because of its ‘real’ lack of power over everything that it wants to master.

Pondering this scenario, I wonder if we somehow know deep down inside that this is what humans have done themselves  to the creator, circumnavigate the real power of the world?

Has humans unknowing or knowingly tried to become the monster of the quote “I have the Power” of it all?

Isn’t this the real crux of the story of Adam and Eve, the first humans, seeing that they could make their own decisions on life and how it would work that they decided not to be instructed by the creator to take instructions, but to be the instructor of themselves.

God has allowed us to take this journey on ourselves, to see the problematic paradigm  that it is. It is understanding that this scenario is still going on still today. The need to see that the creator has the ‘only’ power of all for all, is still veiled over our eyes just as the children of Israel were to who Jesus really was.

It is this paradigm of knowing the creator,that is yet to be seen to the majority of humans today. It is the reality of knowing of who now is in ‘authority’, who is ‘King’,Leader,’Saviour’, or God! It is this knowledge of changing our perception of creator and the reign of some kind(kings,presidents,dictator,chancellor) or whatever leader(a human institution) you have, to that of a ‘heavenly'(as opposed to an earthly institution one that we have) Kingdom such as God has reigned from eternally past to eternally future and forever.

This concept is what is veiled in scripture for a long time until you start to see hints from Jesus during his persecution and his death, that He says that ‘His kingdom is not of this world'(not a physical one, or necessarily a place at all, but a ‘Way’ of doing things, a different way than is being done now. The way of the ‘Adam and Eve’ method of man being in charge of things.

It is ironic that even in the old testament that the children of Israel knew that it wasn’t right in this scenario, that they actually asked for help in changing it. But it wasn’t quite what God had hoped for, Yes, his people asked for ‘King’ but it was for a humanly ‘king’ not God, the Creator, the obvious choice for King!

It will not change in this paradigm until we see the ‘believers’ of God actually ‘see’, ‘act’, and acknowledge God as the ‘King of All for All’.

It is with this understanding that this will then be the fulfillment of his original creation of his people,kingdom, and King.
