“I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever doors you lock on earth shall be locked in heaven; and whatever doors you open on earth shall be open in heaven!”
Matthew 16:19 TLB
We all, on occasion, lose our keys….When it happens, it’s not only frustrating, but can cause us to panic as we frantically dig through a bag or a drawer, or rush to retrace our steps.
It can be disorienting when we reach for that key and its not there.
Although you have been given the keys to the Kingdom of God—keys that will unlock whatever door you need opened—sometimes you misplace them, or simply need reminding where and what they are.
There is no better place than Kingdom School of Ministry to restore your key ring—add new keys and rediscover others. And there is nothing more vital to living your best life than access to those keys.
The message most needed in the world today is the message of the Kingdom of God.
In Matthew 24:14, Jesus told His disciples, “The Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it, and then, finally, the end will come” (TLB).
The message of the Kingdom is what the gospel is all about…
…and the message of the Gospel is all about living more empowered lives.
To all who hear and heed it, the Gospel imparts the self-efficacy that gives meaning, hope, dignity, and purpose—and the full, abundant life Christ spoke of in John 10:10.
It is the “Good News about the Kingdom” that offers an ailing world the keys to new paradigms of health, righteousness, leadership, morality, ethics, and empowered living.
It’s the message that Jesus came to teach everywhere He went.
“I must preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God…because that is why I was sent.”
Luke 4:43 NLT
The term “Kingdom of God” has become a catchphrase in the Body of Christ.
Over time, our understanding of the Kingdom has been diluted by religious traditions, church denominations, and social conventions.
As a result, many believers lack a true understanding of the concept and therefore fail to wield their power and authority as co-rulers in Christ.
When translated, the word kingdom means “the king’s domain.”
The Kingdom is a literal, spiritual dimension accessible only to born-again believers.
This realm encompasses the power and resources essential to the believer if he or she desires to manifest heaven on earth.
In the Kingdom, life is lived within the context that God originally intended—and fulfills the mandate presented in Genesis 1:28.
“Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it.
The Kingdom of God has its own unique characteristics, consisting of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
It encompasses countless other principles, but these primary attributes reflect the power God purposed for His earthly kings—to whom He gave complete dominion over all that exists in the earth.
The Kingdom life can only be experienced by those who have faith in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
According to Luke 17:20, the Kingdom cannot be perceived by the natural eye because it is the sovereign rule of our “unseen” God through His citizens in the earth realm.
Jesus Christ emphatically proclaimed the Kingdom of God. Since He passionately promoted Kingdom living, it is wise to seek all that He purposed and planned for you from the very beginning of time.
Christ instructed us, above all other pursuits, to seek the Kingdom.
It should be our top priority, because it is from this realm our divine purpose, authority, and dominion are established.
Since the Kingdom of Heaven is within us, and we are in the earth, God rules and reigns over the earthly domain through His Church.
The Church must rise up and take her rightful place as God’s official representative, heir, and co-ruler in Christ Jesus.
Open the spirit of your mind and allow these principles of the Kingdom—which are based on truths found in the Word of God—to be seeded into the fertile soil of your heart.
Then, and only then, can the Kingdom be internally understood and externalized through you as a Kingdom Ambassador in the earth.
The greatest enemy of the Kingdom is not the devil or sin, but ignorance of the Word of God.
Hosea 4:6 states: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
Being ignorant—or not knowing—is like being in the dark.
In Hebrew, the word for “darkness” is translated ignorance. Satan is known as the prince of darkness.
Satan’s number one goal is to keep you in darkness by keeping you ignorant of the Word of God in general, and of the Gospel of the Kingdom specifically.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
This is why Jesus taught the following parable in Luke 8:11-12:
“The seed is the word of God. Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.”
Yet, in the book of Daniel, there is a prophecy that refers to a time that God would establish a kingdom which would never be destroyed:
“In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: And the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44; 1-5).
This Kingdom would be so powerful, it would consume all other kingdoms.
But you and I must be empowered with the knowledge of these truths for the Kingdom of Heaven to manifest in the earth—and to reign in every area of our lives.
This is why I’ve been teaching these principles and strategies for over thirty years—and developed eight powerful course intensives delivered over one immersive week during Kingdom School of Ministry.
Plan now to join me this summer for a transformational week of Kingdom teaching, training, and impartation. I promise it will dramatically change the trajectory of your life, ministry, or business!
“You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
“The Kingdom of God is at hand.”
