Kingdom Walker

Our perception regarding, who we are in The Kingdom of God is crucial to our success as a “Kingdom Walker.”  Last month The Lord started sharing with me His Heart regarding our,   “Footing” in His Kingdom, “The Kingdom of Heaven”.  He started showing me the importance of not only recognizing Who we are in Christ Jesus, But He also started emphasizing the vital need that He has for us as Born Again Believers of The Most High God, to, “speak the way He Speaks and to walk the way He Walks.”  His Desire for Intimacy with us is so strong that He went through great personal sacrifice in order for you and me to be brought back into fellowship with Him.  That sacrifice referred to as, “The Lamb of God” in The Bible has a name…..Jesus Christ, The Son of God and the Son of man!

The fellowship that we have with God did not and does not end at Calvary.  Once you and I say, “yes” to Jesus through the recognition and acceptance of Who Jesus Christ is and what Jesus Christ did for us at Calvary as our Lord and Savior, we are then Born into The Kingdom of Heaven!  We are now, “Kingdom Walker’s” because we are now, “Kingdom Carrier’s”!  We house The Kingdom of Heaven “within” through salvation.  In Luke 17:20-21 (AMP), we find Jesus explaining this truth to a group of Pharisees, though He had yet to go to Calvary;

“Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The Kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display,”
“Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you].”

Even though Jesus Christ was standing right in front of them and sharing His Identity with them, the Pharisees failed to recognize, “Who” He really Was and Is. However in Matthew 16:13-17 (AMP) we get a very different response from one of His Disciples;

“Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
“And they answered, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
“He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am”?
“Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”
“Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in Heaven.”
“And I tell you, you are Peter {Greek, Petros—a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra—a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it.]”

So I ask you friend, “Who do you say that the Son of the Living God Is”?

This is not a question to be simply answered.  You see, embodied within your answer is The Heaven Sent Revelation that brings Eternal Transformation!  Anything that becomes, Revelation to you has the power to Transform you from the inside out.  That is what happened to Peter who WAS Simon Bar-Jonah, his personal revelation from God that, “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God”, Transformed him from the inside out! Jesus then called him by his new name, his new identity, “Peter”, whose spoken out the revelation that Jesus is, “The Christ the Son of the Living God”, would become the “Rock” the foundational Revelation, which the Church would be built upon.

Wait!  There’s more!  Jesus then reveals to Peter in Matthew 16:19 (AMP) one of the most powerful Transformative Revelations and Responsibilities for The New Testament Believer;

“I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose (declare lawfully) on earth must be what is already loosed in Heaven.”

Revelation, Transformation, Responsibility….

This is, Our Time Kingdom Walker!  Time to Boldly Walk the road less traveled and Rise Up in One United March for surely, “The Kingdom of God Is Within You”!

KEY QUESTIONS FOR KINGDOM WALKERS:

1. Who do I say that the Son of The Living God Is?
2. What Revelations have I allowed to transform my life? Do they line up with The Word of God, The Holy Bible?
3. What areas of my life is The Lord asking me to take personal responsibility in as a Kingdom Walker?
