Therefore we will not find children of the Kingdom backsliding
Our motto is: “Backwards Never, Forward Ever!”
The children of Israel craved the fish, onions & leeks of Egypt. Kingdom mentality was absent. But because Kingdom does not go backwards they had to die in the wilderness. If you are not wiling to move on with God, you will die (because when the cloud & pillar of fire is removed you will die by exposure at night or heatstroke by day).
We must move to new levels in God within the house – from Believers to Members to Disciples to Ministers to Sons in the house.
Kingdom does not debate or cut deals with people
People are always offering us deals that will sidetrack us & sabotage our destiny
Daniel & his friends were offered the king’s portion but refused to indulge themselves. What we eat may sometimes end up eating us! Prov.23:1-3 “When you sit down to eat with a ruler, look carefully at what is before you; and put a knife to your throat, if you are a man given to appetite. Do not desire his delicacies, for they are deceitful food.”
Kingdom cannot negotiate or debate – it cannot do deals!
Babylon wants to get us to bow to its image of gold (Dan.3). The three Hebrew boys were accurate & steadfast in their Kingdom expression even if God did not deliver them!
Our motto: “No retreat, no rethink, no surrender!”
We don’t rethink our commitment.
Only the forceful can lay hold of it
Matt.11:12 “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” (NIV)
Except no limitation as far as the Kingdom is concerned.
We must say “No!” to everything that seeks to hinder us from high visibility & maximum impact.
The Kingdom cuts down & grinds into powder every false move or impostor
Daniel 2– The idol was cut down and ground into powder
Therefore you cannot afford to be part of the false. If we are we will be crushed also
The kingdom will fill the whole earth
Dan. 2:35 “But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth”
Deut. 10:14 “Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it”
Hab. 2:14 “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea”
The Kingdom will swallow all other kingdoms
John 18:36 “Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
The Kingdom does not operate like the kingdoms of the earth. It’s modus operandi is far superior
This is the difference between churches: the true church builds His Kingdom; the counterfeit, false churches builds an empire
The Kingdom cannot be shaken
We have received a kingdom that cannot be shaken! Heaven & earth will be shaken but not this Kingdom!
Therefore when everything is being shaken around you, you can still stand tall & strong!
