REIGNING AS KINGS (1)
“And had made us Kings and priests to our God, And we shall reign on the earth.”Revelation 5:10
Imagine this scenario with me, you own a house and travelled for three years only to come back and find an illegal occupant, what do you do? You speak peaceably after which you enforce the eviction by the authority in order to reclaim your rightful place.
Our God-given authority in reclaiming the earth is by the spread of the gospel, we need to refrain from this escape mindset of going to heaven (a better place) because the world is evil, whereas what you are looking for is within you. Imagine someone who has food in a land with hungry people, but also needs to go home, do you think those hungry people will pray that you go home?
You have what the world needs. The scriptures says “the kingdom is within you” (Luke 17:21), so we have what it takes to change this world, We are so instrumental in God’s reign such that we are also to reign.
The ministry of reconciliation is not just a religious process at all, it is the way we will fulfil our part in seeing that God’s plan is fulfilled, which is taking the message in order to reclaim the earth.
There’s a light we as believers have access to which is this gospel. The gospel is the power of God to save (Romans 1:16-17).
In Jesus’s earthly walk it was obvious that there was something different about him, when Nicodemus went to meet Jesus in john 3:1-5, Jesus spoke of the kingdom from where He proceeded, where the things Nicodemus spoke about as outstanding, in fact, are the norm of that kingdom.
We cannot reign on the earth if we cannot outweigh what the earth is used to. We see Jesus operating in the realities of our kingdom when he multiplied 5 loaves of bread and two fish, reminding us that we are from another realm having a human experience. It is God’s plan that we reign in every area of life, especially in the fields where God has placed us.
