The Saints Possess The Kingdom

This morning I brought a message titled, “The Saints Possess The Kingdom” at Monte Sião, Niterói, Brazil.

Our focus is to be on the establishment of the Kingdom of God. The greatest purpose of salvation was to release us out of our bondage to satan’s kingdom and transfer us to the Kingdom of God. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13-14). Our salvation is just the first step in the Kingdom of God coming to earth.

Daniel chapter 7 shows the picture of the Kingdom of God—when it is given to Christ as an everlasting dominion which will not pass away, and a kingdom which will not be destroyed. Daniel also shows us that Christ possesses His Kingdom with His saints: the saints took possession of the kingdom (Daniel 7: 22).

Every enemy is in the process of being put into subjection to God and we are supposed to be there with Christ participating in this battle to see the release of His Kingdom. We are to be the ones that bind the strongman and plunder his house. We are to be those who execute, by His Word and Name, the judgments over His enemies. Therefore, we need to be born again in the Spirit in order to engage in what Christ is doing now. We must be involved in this process of bringing His Kingdom.

Our focus must be that we do not lose our position of being under the Lordship of Christ, but we keep ourselves positioned at His right hand, persisting in a life in the Spirit. We commit ourselves to engage with the Lamb to see Him receive the reward of His sufferings and to receive His Kingdom free of all His enemies and every resistance. We keep our focus where Christ is, seated at the right hand of the Father, directly involved with the establishment of the Kingdom of God in the heavens and on earth.
