Receiving The Kingdom (Part 7)

The Word of the Kingdom defines our functional state of being in the Kingdom of GOD. The Word of the Kingdom energized by the HOLY SPIRIT develops our functional state of being in the Kingdom of GOD.

The Word of the Kingdom facilitates our living and functioning in the Kingdom of GOD! Everything we do in thought, word, deed and relationship can be developed and resourced in the dynamic of life in the Kingdom.

The Word of the Kingdom enables the entire fabric of our state of being and its every function in conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious terms to be developed and resourced in and from the Kingdom of GOD.

In Matthew 6:33 [NASB], YESHUA instructs us: < 33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. > The realities of the Kingdom of GOD are predestined to invade the realities of the world.

In Matthew 13:44-45 [NASB], YESHUA instructs us on the hidden wealth of the Kingdom that nothing on earth compares with: < 44 “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, 46 and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it. >

The Kingdom is taken hold of from our inward parts [see Luke 17:20-21, NKJV] with the new spirit [designed to carry functions in the life-giving Spirit of JESUS CHRIST] and new heart [designed to carry the Word of GOD in a Blood Covenant of YESHUA’s flesh] that GOD has given us in the new birth [see Eze 36:26; John 3:3-5].

Entry into the Kingdom is entirely based on our recognition [by faith] of YESHUA as LORD and Savior as a consequence of the finished work of the Cross [see Rom 10:9; Col 2:8-15]. This is why in Water Baptism we are baptized [“immersed” and “buried”] into CHRIST and baptized [“immersed” and “buried”] into His death [see Rom 6:3; Gal 3:27, NASB+NKJV] so that we will all be partakers of His death and resurrection in a power that works within us [see Eph 3:20c].

Hence the Word of the Kingdom finds both its definitive and its functional root in the Word [Logos] of the Cross [see 1 Cor 1:18, NASB; Eph 3:20; Heb 1:3b] in the Blood Covenant reality of YHWH-Jireh [see Gen 22:14].

The Rhema of the Logos Word [the quickened Word] of the Cross operates by the SPIRIT in Spirit, Water and Blood [see Rom 8:2; 1 John 5:8, 10a, NKJV] in our inward parts. And this Witness operates in our mouth and in our heart [see Deut 30:14-15].

The Rhema of the Word of the Cross is the functional witness of Blood Covenant in us in Spirit, Water and Blood. And the witness of Blood Covenant operates in a power that works within us.

All of GOD’s Kingdom provision “registers” its realities [in the substance and witness of our faith authored and finished by YESHUA into a circumcised heart of flesh] in Spirit, Water and Blood. These realities are empowered realities – beyond all that we ask or think [see Eph 3:20].

In this Witness the Kingdom of GOD is received, accessed and operated in – by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS [see Rom 8:2]. The operating dynamic of the Kingdom stands in Spirit, Water and Blood. Spirit, Water and Blood is the reality [the inward witness] in which the Kingdom of GOD is in us and amongst us [see Luke 17:20-21, NKJV+NASB]. This witness is an empowered witness that stands in the power that works within us.

In Spirit, Water and Blood the functional dynamic of the Kingdom of GOD is developed in resurrection power.

In Spirit, Water and Blood the evidence of the Kingdom is opened in us and amongst us in empowered realities.

In Spirit, which is the life-giving Spirit of JESUS CHRIST [see 1 Cor 15:45 + Phil 1:19c], the capacities of Kingdom function are defined in the witness. The entire complex of the call of YESHUA and the entire spectrum of the gift-mix – hard-wired into the inward parts of the Body of MASHIAH – are meant to be fully enabled in the life-giving Spirit of JESUS CHRIST.

In Water, is the “Voice/Witness” of JESUS CHRIST [see Rev 1:15c] and His Word [see Heb 5:13-14]. So the Kingdom’s King has direct access to our inward parts [and vice versa] through His Witness of Spirit, Water and Blood – provided we are tuned in to YESHUA, by the SPIRIT, from our inward parts.

In Blood, is the Witness of Blood Covenant that stands defined in a progressively circumcised heart of His Flesh [see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; Heb 10:19-20]. Our calling and our gift mix must always operate in a Blood Covenant framework – where we function by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, before the FATHER!

The Witness of the Cross – in Spirit, Water and Blood – opens the awesome complex of Kingdom function into our inward parts. This awesome complex of Kingdom function operates by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in a freedom and liberty from the Law of Sin and Death [see Rom 8:2] evidenced in the Shabbat-Shalom of YHWH.

In the Kingdom, in the outcomes of the finished work of the cross, energized by the HOLY SPIRIT, Romans 8:1-5 [NKJV] declares: < 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. >

Romans 14:17 describes the outcome of Kingdom living by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS as follows: < 17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness [see Rom 10:10] and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. >
