The Kingdom of God is in you.

  • The Kingdom that God is trying to put in you is greater than the world around you.

  • Adam lost the power of truth because he disobeyed it.
  • Truth requires an evidence or demonstration. Truth lives in Faith. Heb 11:6
  • Lk 22:29 So I give you authority to rule with me in the kingdom the Father has given me. (NIV) And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
  • 2Cor 5:20 “So we have been sent to speak for Christ. It is like God is calling to people through us. We speak for Christ ……”.

Relationship with ‘our Father’, is the highest authority of relationship on earth. Satan severed the cord by with a blunt instrument called unbelief. Faith connects us to the the Father by way of His Son Jesus Christ. He, Jesus reconciled us with the Father.

Therefore below is a number of principles to understand who we are ; who He is and who we all are in Him.  A father has higher priority and influence in life over his own, than a king.

Jesus is King of kings, and has earned that from first demonstrating His love for us by demonstrating it. Giving His life in love for us. Therefore we call Him King easily.

Most references are using ‘father’, as your earthly father as a relationship; yet also reflects our ‘Father’ in heaven as  our heavenly relationship.

  • father – ultimate, intimate relationship therefore supreme authority.
  • king – uses power, influence and fear to set his agenda’s. (politics).
