King James Version (KJV)
“For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out:”
The Land, the Promised Land, is not like the land of Egypt. We are no longer in bondage, in slavery, to a ruler, to work at his pleasure.
Saints, this is a truth we need to understand.
We have a new King. We are no longer building earthly monuments.
We are to build a Spiritual Kingdom.
As Christians, we entered the promised land, just as the Hebrews did. (Hopefully it didn’t take us 40 years to reach it. Although, I was close to 30).
The Promised Land today is the Kingdom of God. It has different rules and regulations than the World we are used to.
“And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
If we believe the Gospel, then we live in this new world. The Kingdom of God.
King James Version (KJV)
“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.”
It is bigger than anything we can imagine, but we are the vessels the Lord is using to build it.
We must suspend, our carnel beliefs, ideas and ways, and lift up our eyes to where our help resides. Open our hearts and minds to His will and ways.
“Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”
We must attain a child like faith, accept the Word of God as truth, Speak it, Believe it, Watch it come to pass, as we Walk in it.
“And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.”
We need to quit worrying about what to eat or drink, put our carnel needs and desires aside, and concern ourselves with His Will and Plan.
“But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
“And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.”
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
1 Corinthians 4:20
“For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.”
We have entered the place that the Lord will give to “whosoever,” whatsoever is needed to fulfil His will and work.
We cannot do His will and work effectively, if we do not accept all He has given us to work with.
We cannot begin in the Spirit, getting Saved, called to His Work, and expect His results, when we walk and work in our own power.
We must believe, and allow the Holy Spirit to rule and reign in our hearts.
We must allow ourselves to become Holy Spirit dispensers… Allow the Lord to flow through us in Power, to save the lost, heal the sick and comfort the brokenhearted. Amen
