Summary: There are things that we do not see but it’s real. God is the King of the unseen realm called Heaven, but heaven is more real than the natural realm.
This is the 2nd part of our series on understanding the kingdom of God.
Let us review our last Sunday’s lesson:
What is a Kingdom?
A state or government, anything conceived as constituting a realm or sphere of independent action or control.
“Kingdom” - means, a domain, dominions, territory, a place where someone rules.
The kingdom is the governing influence of a king over his territory, impacting it with his personal will, purpose and intent, producing a culture, values, morals and lifestyle that reflect the king’s desire and nature for his citizens.
I hope it is already clear to us that we already belong to this kingdom.
A broad understanding of God’s kingdom is essential to our faith.
So, in this kingdom there are precepts (direction given as a rule of action or conduct.) or customs, Etiquettes and protocols.
Like I said last Sunday, God’s Word God has provided everything to His children with treasures of information concerning His kingdom and His precepts.
I just want to remind you of this wonderful truth, When we have received Jesus as the Lord of our lives, we immediately moved from the kingdom of darkness into His marvelous light.
Our rebirth in the spirit earned us our citizenship in His kingdom and accompanying it is the immeasurable inheritance and blessings.
* In the kingdom of God, we do not function according to what we see in the natural realm.
We move according to what we perceive in the spirit. Remember we both exist in these two worlds.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
There are things that we do not see but it’s real. God is the King of the unseen realm called Heaven, but heaven is more real than the natural realm.
A certain man who prayed,” Lord, give me a new car”
The Lord answered him with a challenge, “Do you really believe that I am able to give you a brand new car?”
“Yes Lord!” he answered hastily. The Lord reply, “If you really believe that, I want to act that you have already have it”
“No problem Lord” his replied.
The Lord said,“ I want you to start washing that car in your garage”
This man in obedience got a car shampoo and foam and started washing the invisible car in their garage.
His wife and his children saw him and thought what is happening to their father.
But this man believed God and received his brand new car!
This is the principle behind this:
Mark 11:24 (God’s Word Translation)
That's why I tell you to have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, we begin to understand (by revelation knowledge) the will of God.
His Words become alive – the newly spoken Word of God carries that capacity to achieve the very reason they were released.
Isaiah 55:11 (New International Version)
So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
