Summary: Taking legal possesion of what is yours as a Child of God
Sermon: Kingdom title deed
Text: Hebrews 11:1 amplified
Now faith is the assurance (confirmation the title deed) of things hoped for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality (Faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses).
Theme: Kingdom Precepts
Title deed: definition
Property register'. (Matthew 10:30 KJV) But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Title deeds are documents showing ownership, as well as rights, obligations
Deeds Office: commissioned by a government ordained by God
Romans 13:1 (NLT)
Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.
Axiom: Authority to issue title deeds is based on ownership. It you give what is not yours you are a fraudster
God owns all assets and has instituted a deeds office.
• The physical address of this office is your Bible
• Mental address is your soul
• The spiritual address is your heart
The physical address states
Gen 14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
(Psalms 24:1 KJV) A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
But there is a problem
I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
Axiom: We must not confuse kingdom vocabulary with the language of man.
A servant is an employee whose conditions of service are governed by an arrangement.
• A servant‘s motivation is determined by his salary
A prince is an heir to the kingdom ordained by the God (9:12)
• A prince is the son of a king
A prince’s conditions of service are bound by a covenant. The attitude of a hireling
(Job 7:2 KJV) As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:
(John 10:12 KJV) But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
(John 10:13 KJV) The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
(Acts 11:26 KJV)
• Christianity is not an employment contract it is relationship. John 1:12 (exousia)
Axiom: At the heart of our relationship with God is our ordination to Rulership.
• Maxim: The difference between an arrangement and a relationship is that a relationship is ordained by God
• Illustration: de-facto relationship is driven by the Iust of the flesh/ marriage genesis 2:24
The Kingdom is based on royalty, sonship, dominion jurisdiction
(Genesis 1:26 KJV) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
