Summary: Demonstrations of Power, Glory and the Kingdom always result in an expansion of Godly influence. There is a city wide, a regional and a national impact! As His will is expressed.
THE KINGDOM AND HIS WILL
The Lords prayer is simple in its instruction: Luke 11
‘Thy Kingdom come”
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven!”
John the Baptist said “The Kingdom of heaven is at hand”
Jesus said “The Kingdom of God is here”
Our job “Extend the kingdom!”
The purpose of the Kingdom to see Gods will done on earth as in heaven.
The Kingdom of God is an expression of Power!
1 Cor 4:19-21
I will come—and soon—if the Lord will let me, and then I’ll find out whether these arrogant people are just big talkers or whether they really have God’s power. 20 For the Kingdom of God is not just fancy talk; it is living by God’s power. 21 Which do you choose?
Jesus went on to say, “I assure you that some of you standing here right now will not die before you see the Kingdom of God arrive in great power!”
There is so much more to experience folks! Every time I read the book of Acts I realise that.
Angels working with the saints to see the job done. transportation and transformation. As we begin to see into the Spiritual we suddenly see a whole lot of wonders going on in front of us. Also we notice that there are a whole lot of other eagles as well. When eagles gather things happen!
The following story will help us see the Kingdom is not just about church, but about establishing an eternal Kingdom!
An eagle chick got thrown out of its nest as a very young eaglet. A farmer found the chick and decided to give it to a mother Turkey on his farm who raised it.
As the young Eagle grew it behaved just like all the other Turkeys. It ate grain, it lived in a small enclosure and it didn’t fly, because Turkeys don’t fly well.
As time went by the young Eagle began to flap his wings a lot, much to the consternation of the others in the compound! Then one day a strong wind blew just as the Eagle spread his wings. The wind caught the young eagle’s wings and lifted him out of the compound into the open spaces. Well the uproar from the compound was very loud, causing the Farmer to come running. The farmer said, Ï wondered how long it would be before you discovered the truth. After all you are an eagle! You are designed to soar high in the sky!
He took the young eagle to a high ridge and as the wind blew the eagle again spread his wings. Soon he was flying and he went higher and higher into the heavens where he belonged. He had discovered his true home.
As Christians we are designed to live in the supernatural realm. To soar in the spirit and to fellowship in the heavens. But often we just live in the turkey pen.
We can’t see beyond our experience in the natural. If it hasn’t happened in the Turkey pen then it just doesn’t happen. If anyone tries to tell me different I just won’t believe him. After all this is how its been in the Turkey pen for generations.
We eat till we can’t eat any more. Good wholesome grains, we feed ourselves most mornings. Sometimes in the evening we go to other pens and get more grain, On Sundays we go to the big pen with all the others, and we get extra helpings of good grain. Wow we are so full we can hardly walk now! But that’s how it’s meant to be. Lots and lots of good wholesome grain.
