BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE:SUNDAY,OCTOBER 13,2019 TOPIC:GOD IS MORE THAN DEITY TEXT: Gen 1:1
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”
God is not just deity but also a king. One of those who learnt this in the hard way was Nebuchadnezzar. It took him 7 years to learn that God is the king.
“And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will”
He has worshipped gods that were purely satisfied with
sacrifices and offerings But he has never knew the king that rules over all of them. He has known God as the Lord. When he heard that this King is the Lord,he could not comprehend it until he learnt by experience. A king rules over a realm. God created the heavens and the earth as a confirmation of his kingship.He rules over the heavens and the earth,that is why he gave the earth to man to rule on his behalf.We are to rule as his representative.When we maintain good relationship with him,we a preparing to be good representatives.God is raising kingdom agents that will fulfil his heart’s desire all over the earth.He rules and reigns all over the earth.
What is the gospel in the kingdom perspective?
We are reclaim all lives and territories where the will of the king is not been done.This is the mandate.
First, in your life,is his will the utmost? Next other lives,communities and regions.This is to see the power and the glory of the kingdom.Why we preached the cross as the tool for evacuation of the old man,the crown of authority in the name of Jesus is not to be left out.The power of the Holy ghost is not to be undermined in bringing to manifestation the glory of the Kingdom.
In Christ is the kingdom.We must know the kingdom mandate and run with it everytime.
THANK YOU FATHER FOR THE KINGDOM UNFOLDED,I WALK IN THIS LIGHT IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
