Kingdom of God

 Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
 
We preach and hear the message of salvation often, but there is so much more. The Kingdom of God and the fact that it is here and has been here for two thousand years. Salvation is mentioned 50 times, redemption 11 times. The kingdom of God/Kingdom of Heaven 150 times. Why? Because salvation/redemption are just a part of the Kingdom of God and not the entire Gospel of the Kingdom. We accept Christ's sacrifice, get baptized and then what? Most of us are looking nervously behind us fearing that we will fall short and not recieve what we already have...salvation. Instead we should be seeking God's Kingdom now, because it is here. 
Matthew 4:23
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
 
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.
 
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
 
 
The Kingdom is here and now, but we don't recognize it, because we can't see it. The Body of Christ is powerless (as a whole), because we don't recognize it. We are more concerned with "not sinning". If all of our focus is on seeking God's kingdom we won't sin, not of our own doing but by God's Grace. Now, here is the warning Paul writes in 2Timothy

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Having a form of our religion, but denying the power thereof: 

This is why our churches (save a few, and some individuals) are powerless. It is called unbelief, Because we don't believe to see, we want to see to believe. We are more than conquerors, but do not act like it. We act like a people living in fear of losing salvation. God is more than capable to keep what is His. It is time we start doing what Jesus commanded and showing His Power through us and our lives. This starts by first being submissive to God, then by resisting the devil and he will flee. This includes not accepting disease, we as a whole are double-minded we want healing but speak sickness. We tell people "I feel sick today", "I'm tired", "I'm catching a cold". This is being double-minded. We think that being sick is a part of life.......it isn't. not for children of the Almighty God through Jesus. The power of life and death is in the tongue. Start speaking health and knowing in your heart, health will come. Sickness has no part in the Body of Christ. Lack of knowledge is what is killing us, read and study God's Word for it is Spirit and life. Studying God's Word changes us, when we study it only to seek knowledge.........The Holy Spirit handles the rest, but we must renew our mind first.
