Forward Motion

Matthew 11:12
Jesus said The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:…behold, the kingdom of God is within you.  (Luke 17:20-21) As citizens of heaven right now, we have been sent into the world with the word of reconciliation in us, to represent God as ambassadors for Christ in the earth. (II Corinthians 5:19-20 Romans 14:17-18 says, For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

God created man, male and female in his own image. He blessed them and commanded them to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it. He gave them dominion over all the earth.  (Genesis 1:27-28) The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden and put the man there to dress it and to keep it. The garden was plenteous with the goodness of God. Man could partake and enjoy all God had given him except for one thing. He was commanded not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (See Genesis Chapter 2) God is good only. In Him is light and no darkness at all. Man was made in his image – light only. He was not to mix light (revelations) and darkness (Blind ignorance). Nothing has changed, for God does not change.

We as ambassadors for and in Christ with the kingdom of God in us are to fill the earth with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD. (Habakkuk 2:14) To do this in Christ, we must deny ourselves, present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God and press into the presence of God first. Before they began their earthly ministries, John the Baptist, Jesus and Paul pressed into the high calling of God as they were taught by his Spirit in the wilderness. (Luke 1:80, Mark 1:12-15, Galatians 1:15-17) Their spiritual victories in the wilderness by the power of God transformed them to prove the will of God in the world.

The forward motion of the kingdom of God in you into the world is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The kingdom of God in you does not conform to the ways of the world, but to the ways and purposes of God. Humble yourself to the will of God, hear his voice, see the victory in the spirit, become it, speak it and do it. Led by the Holy Spirit, we obtain the victory at the start. The power we yield to and move in is from the throne of God. Righteousness is who we are and what we do. Peace remains our umpire in all circumstances and situations, no matter the pressure spiritual or natural.  (Philippians 4:7-9) The joy of the Lord is our strength because it is, and it maintains the atmosphere of heaven in and around us and allows the presence and power to flow through the right hand of God on our behalf.

As we go into the world, we say the words of Jesus, ‘Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven’, for the knowledge of the glory of the LORD shall fill the earth.
