There Two Kingdoms On The Earth Which One Rules Your Life?

The Kingdom of God is God’s government, operating on earth. It’s God’s way of doing things. It’s God operating through the Holy Spirit in you, to affect and change your life and events on this planet.

 

When you operate in the Kingdom of God, you deliver people from sickness, disease, poverty, fear, death, and demons. You are God’s representative, and you have authority over demonic powers. God’s spiritual laws created natural laws.

According to Rom 14:17, the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

 

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matt 6:23) This is our first priority, to seek first the Kingdom. God’s Kingdom is always the same. The world’s kingdom is failing. …And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables,” (Mark 4:11) If we do things the world’s way we will fail, because the world’s system is controlled by Satan. …in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

 

Satan is ruler of the world’s system. God gave Adam and Eve all authority on the earth and told them to rule, to have authority, dominion, and to subdue anything that gets out of line, according to Gen 1:26. But when they obeyed the devil and ate the fruit, they not only were born again into sin, needing a savior, but they gave all their authority to Satan. (Eph 2:2) The ruler of this world [Satan] is judged. (John 16:11) Look at: (John 12:31) Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.

…the ruler of this world is coming. (John 14:30)

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev 12:9)

 

Next we see Jesus tempted by the devil, who offered to give him all the kingdoms of the world if he would worship him. If this scripture weren’t true—if Satan couldn’t actually offer up the kingdoms of the world—it wouldn’t be a temptation.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if you fall down and worship me. (Matt 4:8-9)

 

This is the condition of the world’s system…The earth also is defiled … the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate (Is 24:5-6).

If the King is corrupt, the whole system he controls is corrupt and will fail.

 

Jesus brought the kingdom of Heaven with Him. He was born king and He shows us how to rule as kings on earth. Everything He did, He did as king.

… he that is born King of the Jews. (Matt 2:2)

Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Matt 3:2)

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ (Matt 4:17)

 

Here is an example of both systems. No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [the world’s system]. (Matt 6:24-25)

 

The kingdom belongs to God, we must take it back and enforce God’s rule.

… And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matt 11:12)

 

By sending Jesus to earth to live a sin-free life and pay the price for our sins and die on the cross, then going to hell and beating up the devil, He legally made a JUDGMENT against him. We are to enforce this judgment by setting people free from sickness, lack, disease, fear, demons, death and every evil thing. …the ruler of this world is judged. (John 16:11) For the kingdom of God is …righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Rom 14:17)

 

As kings, it is our duty to take back what God gave us in the Garden of Eden and what He bought back for us by His blood. It is our righteousness in Jesus that gives us the authority and power to enforce Satan’s defeat.

 

Earth is a pattern of Heaven. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens. (Rom 9:23) God is king in Heaven and He made us, His kids, king of earth. Jesus is the king of kings. We are created in His image. God put all things under our feet. We are to control and enforce the judgment against everything that is outside of God’s will. What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? (Ps 8:4) Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet. (Heb 2:7-8) …the earth hath he given to the children of men. (Ps 115:16)

 

Earth is man’s kingdom and we are to expand that kingdom into all the earth. We do this by following Jesus’ example. The time of the Rapture depends on us sharing the good news about the Kingdom. … And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matt 24:14)

 

We are not waiting for some big war, but for the gospel of this kingdom to be preached.

 

You’re the ambassador for the Kingdom

 

God has made you an ambassador for His Kingdom.

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ. (2 Cor 5:20)

 

This is the World Book Encyclopedia definition of ambassador: “A representative of the highest rank sent by a Ruler (King) to another to speak and act on behalf of the government. An official messenger with a special errand.”

 

As an ambassador, you represent the qualities, traits and habits of your home (Heaven). You say what our King says and you don’t say your own words. Your message is His message… for our citizenship is in heaven, (Phil 3:20) Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God’ (John 3:3)

 

There are two kingdoms on earth: the kingdom of mammon or money (the devil’s kingdom) and the Kingdom of God. When you asked Jesus to come into your life, you were taken out of the kingdom of Satan and put into the kingdom of God.

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, (Satan’s kingdom) and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. (Of LOVE) (Col 1:13)

 

The Kingdom of God is not physical, it is spiritual. The spiritual overrules the physical, because the spiritual made the physical. You must receive the Holy Spirit, for He is the power of the Kingdom. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Rom 14:17) For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. (1 Cor 4:20)

 

Jesus put aside all His godly attributes so He could be a man like us. When He came to earth as a man, He needed the Holy Spirit and power to do the will of God. (Phil 2:7 and Rom 8:3) God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. (Acts 10:38) Behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:21)

It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32)

 

Your job is to do what Jesus did. He showed you how to live as a king and what was possible. We are to copy Him. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. (John 6:38) He went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. (Luke 8:1)

 

God sent us to bring the good news of the Kingdom of God, which is God’s power, authority, dominion and rule on earth through us. This means we now have authority over all sickness, diseases and devils. Let’s look at what Jesus did and said when He healed, and copy Him. And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. (Luke 10:9) And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them (Matt 15:30).

 

Here He gives us the instruction on what to say. Notice it is the kingdom in YOU that heals. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8: Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give (Matt 10:7-8) And Jesus went …preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matt 9:35)

 

The Kingdom of God casts out demons. But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. (Matt 12:28, Luke 11:20)

 

The finger is in the body, not the head. You are the body of Christ and Jesus is the head. As the body you have been sent to enforce the kingdom rule. The Kingdom of God on earth is to be as wonderful as life in heaven! Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. (Matt 6:10) The Kingdom is what empowers you to bring God’s will on earth as it is in Heaven. God sent us into the world to preach the Kingdom of God. And how shall they preach, except they be sent? … preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things. (Rom10:15)

 

We are the body of Christ. We are here to do His will. He has given us all authority and power to do what He sent us to do. And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church. (Eph 1:22)

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning…or it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell. (Col 1:18-19)

 

We are the body of Christ and we have the fullness of God in US!

And Jesus …spake… All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. You go therefore…Teaching them and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. (Matt 28:18,20) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature…And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. … AND they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. (Mark 16:15-18)

As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. (John 17:18)

 

Now don’t think “who, me?” Yes, YOU are the Righteousness of God and that is a gift. That gift is what gives you the right and power to reign in life through Jesus. YOU are the flesh Jesus lives in today. YOU are the only Jesus people will see. Every Christian is God’s body on earth to do His will. Look at the next two scriptures and claim them as your own. …they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. (Rom 5:17) grace reign through righteousness (Rom 5:21) And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matt 16:19) To bind and loosen means: what you allow and don’t allow on earth. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matt 18:18)

 

The rules and laws of the Kingdom of God.

 

The kingdom of God is ruled by a higher law than the natural laws of earth. The kingdom of God is superior to the rule on earth.

 

1. LOVE: For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Gal 5:14)

 

2. WORDS: For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (Word) hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (Rom 8:2)

 

3. SOWING AND REAPING: As long as the earth remains there will be seedtime and harvest. (Gen 8:22)

Faith is compared to a seed. (Luke 6:23-45) also (Luke 17:6):

The Kingdom is compared to a seed. Also how you hear is a seed that will come back to you multiplied. (Luke 8:5-18) The Word is seed.

 

4. BINDING AND LOOSING: Whatever we allow on earth and in our lives, God allows. (Matt 18:18)

He has given us all authority over all the earth. (Gen 1:26) There is no time in the Kingdom of God. God already provided all you will ever need, even before you were born. Just like an expecting mother gets everything ready for her unborn child, God prepared everything you would need for life and godliness. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness. (2 Pet 1:3)

 

Jesus proves He is alive today by doing the same things He did when He walked the earth. Now He does them through you and me. To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. (Acts 1:3) And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matt 24:14)
