'THE KINGDOM OF GOD'
Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Praise God my brothers, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN US WHO KNOW JESUS!
Brothers, we are now in the kingdom of God, because the kingdom of God is within us. We are in this world, but we are not of this world, for when we were born again we became new creatures. The old man of flesh and sin died, and we were removed from the evil of this world and made to live in the kingdom of God. Do you see here that the lost live in and do as the world does as we once did. But, now are we made anew and reside in the kingdom of God. We continue to live in this world and go about our lives each day, but we do not walk as the lost walk, nor seek after the things of this world as does the lost, for we are made to live in the kingdom of God.
God's Holy Word tells us that He knows those things that we have need of and will give it unto us. He also says that he will give us the desires of our heart, if we will serve him and do those things that he asks us to do All things belong to God, and he will move those things that you have need of, into the kingdom of God where it is that we live.
Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Luke 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
Luke 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
Luke 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
Luke 17:25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
Jesus suffered many things for us, and was rejected of that generation. So to is He still being rejected in this day by those who are lost. Luke tells us here that we also may suffer rejection of this world because we serve and walk with Jesus. But, remember that we have overcome this world and do not have to seek things of this world as does the lost in this day. For we have all things available to us in the kingdom of god. We only have to ask God, in faith, and believe that we receive.
Mark 11:22-25 Have faith in God.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
So brothers, we are first to forgive all who we have ought against. Then we are to have faith in God that he will do what he has said. We are then to speak unto our mountains and believe that they are gone form us and cast into the sea. We should have no doubt in our hearts, but shall believe that those things that we speak shall come to pass. Speak all things in faith.
Brothers, this does not mean that as soon as we speak to the mountain that is in our lives that it will immediately be cast into the sea. But, we are to have faith that it has been cast into the sea. As you speak to your mountains, see them being cast into the sea and falling down into the sea sinking lower and lower until it reaches the bottom of the ocean floor, then see the earth open up and swallow your mountain, and close again over that mountain. Speak to your mountain often and see this picture in your mind each and every time that you speak it. Until it becomes ingrained in mind, heart, soul, and spirit. Please remember that we do not walk by sight, but rather we walk by faith. Thus we do not have to see it with our earthly eyes, but rather with our spiritual eyes, and as we walk in faith so shall all we speak come to pass brothers.
These mountains of your life will be cast into the sea. It is like your healing, for some are miraculously healed instantly and others are healed over a period of time. Just because it does not happen immediately does not mean that it has not happened. By faith we believe and by faith we receive. Thank God for the truth of his Word, and give him praise and thanksgiving each time that you speak against your mountain. WALK IN FAITH!
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Brothers, please see here that Noah had never seen rain in his life. But, because God told him that He was going to send a flood upon the earth to destroy all that He had created. Noah believed God and built an Arc as he was told by God to do. Also Lot took his wife and two daughters out of Sodom. He acted upon the word that God had given him. Do you see here that we are required to act on our faith and do as God has told us to do.
Noah did not see rain falling before he started to build the Arc. Lot did not see fire and brimstone falling from heaven onto the city of Sodom before he took his family and left. They believed God, they acted upon what He had told them, and they walked in faith knowing that it would come to pass.
Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
Luke 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
Lot's wife was told not to turn back and look upon Sodom with regret for having left the city. She turned to look back and was turned into a pillar of salt as God had said, it came to pass.
Brothers please don't turn and look back upon your mountains. Leave them at the bottom of the sea where you have spoken them and saw in your spiritual mind them lie on the ocean floor.
Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
Luke 17:35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Luke 17:36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
In the day in which the Son of Man is revealed in the air. Many shall be caught away to meet Jesus in the air, and many shall be left behind because they were not watching for Him. Brothers, pray for the lost to be saved. Pray for your brothers to be walking in faith. Speak to your mountains. Forgive all whom you have anything against. Have faith in God. Believe that you receive. Have no doubt in your heart. Walk through this life knowing that you are not of this world, and that you are in the kingdom of God, and the kingdom of God resides inside you
God Bless you my brothers,
