Receiving The Kingdom (Part 5)

In Matthew 6:9-13 [NKJV], the LORD JESUS CHRIST instructs us to pray to the FATHER, declaring: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” in the clear understanding that this will be so because “Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

The purpose of the Kingdom of GOD in this age is to manifest the FATHER’s will on the earth. The end product is the earth operating in the FATHER’s will – as it is in heaven [see Isa 11:1-10].

The prophetic intent of YHWH’s will, is to: (i) manifest the Kingdom, manifest the instruments of the Kingdom [the people of GOD equipped in CHRIST JESUS, by the HOLY SPIRIT to function as the Oracles of GOD (see 1 Peter 4:10-11) in the Kingdom reality of being priests, prophets and kings] and, manifest the institutions of the Kingdom [the prophetic and apostolic ‘hubs’ manifested throughout the Body of MASHIAH, being unveiled in every nation, operating from High Places in the Mount of the LORD under the shadow of the ALMIGHTY (see Isa 2:2-4; 4:4-6; 33:15-17)]; and, (ii) to destroy evil [see Rev 20:10-15], destroy the instruments of evil and, destroy the institutions of evil [see Isa 2:1-4, 12-22; Isa 24:1-6].

Revelation 11:15-19 [NASB] declares: < 15 Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying, “We give You thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. 18 “And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” 19 And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened; and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple, and there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder and an earthquake and a great hailstorm. >

The great outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT that we are anticipating will energize and empower [from our inward parts] a tangible and verifiable Kingdom explosion [the reward of our faith in YHWH, through His SON]in us and amongst us [see Luke 17:20-21, NKJV+NASB]. As Prophet Rick Joyner writes: “Every great thing in Scripture was but the seed of what we will now see as a harvest. Even the first century church was but a seed of what the church will become.”

The Seed [the Seed of CHRIST prophetically rooted in the Seed of Abraham (by Promise) and, the Seed of CHRIST prophetically rooted in the Seed of David (in a functional intimacy of YESHUA as the BELOVED)] for all that will flow in, and through, the Body of MASHIAH will flow out of the prophetic Word we are holding on to in the Testimony of YESHUA [see Rev 19:10c], expecting [in a faith authored and finished by YESHUA] YHWH to actually perform His Word in us and amongst us [see Jer 1:11-12, NASB] and through us as we unfold as the Oracles of GOD placed in every conceivable human situation across the nations [see 1 Peter 4:11, NKJV].

In this outpouring there will be a knitting together of the Body of MASHIAH into apostolic and prophetic hubs in every part of the Body; each hub with a peculiar Kingdom mandate and perspective. And, each hub will be a composite extract of the Church, beyond denominational boundaries.

As Colossians 2:2-3 [NKJV] declares: < 2 that their [our] hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding [see Prov 9:10b], to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge [see Matt 13:11]. >

We will be knit together in love in circumcised hearts of flesh. In circumcised hearts of flesh we will operate both singularly and corporately in Mount Zion [the Mount of YHWH – see Gen 22:14, KJV+NASB] through the Blood of the LAMB and through the Veil of His Flesh [see Heb 10:19-20, NKJV]!

Disciples of YESHUA: understanding the times; uniting in prayer; knitted together in love actualized through the revelation of YESHUA as the BELOVED in our inward parts; operating by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in Spirit, Water and Blood [see 1 John 5:8,10a, NKJV; Rev 3:14b, NASB], in the Shabbat-Shalom of YHWH; will stand and operate in Kingdom realities unveiled in the Heights [see Isa 33:14-17], the High Places of Mount Zion [see Heb 12:22-24] where it will be seen and where it will be provided [see Gen 22:14, KJV+NKJV] by Oath of Covenant established in hearts of flesh [see Heb 7:28; Jer 1:11-12] circumcised by the SPIRIT to yield the fragrance of the BELOVED [see Rom 2:28-29; Deut 30:6; 2 Cor 2:14-17].

As Revelation 10:7 [NASB] declares: < 7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. >

We need to choose to stand as a people consecrated to YHWH through prayer [see Isa 59:1-2]. We need to know how to operate by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS in a Shabbat-Shalom that will unveil our calling and peculiar gift mix in the Witness and Testimony of YESHUA.

We need to choose to be in a communion of the saints so that a necessary knitting together of our inward parts – in Spirit, Water and Blood – is achieved by the SPIRIT [see John 17:22-23].

The coming revival will be a Kingdom Explosion that will catapult the Body of MASHIAH out of the works of the flesh [flowing out of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil] into the works wrought in GOD [see John 3:21, NASB] unfolding as the fruit of the Tree of Life arising out of the Root of David, to give expression to the Offspring of David [see Rev 22:16; Ps 132:11].

As YESHUA declared [see John 14:12, NASB]: <12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. >

In the midst of trials and tribulations we will discover the greatness of YESHUA our King in our midst. As Acts 14:22c declares: < “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” >
