Intro to the School of KINGDOM Living - Part 1

Matthew 6:33 "BUT SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these things will be added to you."

Thank you for joining us today at the School of KINGDOM Living! This is the first of hundreds of articles, TV shows, and podcasts dedicated to training and equipping the saints of God FOR HIS KINGDOM LIVING.

Colossians 1:13, 19-22 "For HE RESCUED US FROM THE DOMINION OF DARKNESS, AND TRANSFERRED US TO THE KINGDOM OF HIS BELOVED SON, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins... For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to RECONCILE ALL THINGS TO HIMSELF, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, YET HE HAS NOW RECONCILED YOU in His fleshly body through death, in order to PRESENT YOU BEFORE HIM HOLY AND BLAMELESS AND BEYOND REPROACH— "

The School of KINGDOM Living has a specific mission and several clear objectives. First, our mission is to help EVERYONE understand their Identity and Purpose IN CHRIST. We were made in the image and likeness of God, our Heavenly Father, and the Son, Jesus. Our entire identity and purpose are wrapped up and centered on one thing, and one thing only, our IDENTITY AS SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE LIVING GOD OF THE UNIVERSE!

To find our identity, we rely completely and solely on Holy Spirit as He reveals the Father and the Son. Holy Spirit reveals, and the Son teaches, guides, and leads forever.

The School of KINGDOM Living is about exercising FAITH in HIS REST to find our identity and purpose IN the finished work of Jesus Christ. According to the Bible, Jesus DID IT ALL, and we are to receive this TRUTH and rejoice. The ultimate will of the Father and the Son is to transform us into the Father's image and likeness. It is the Father's good pleasure to fulfill His original plan, which is to love us as His forever Sons & Daughters.

The School of KINGDOM Living is about allowing Jesus to transform us by Grace as a FREE Gift of the Father's LOVE, MERCY, WISDOM, and FAVOR. Followers of Christ know that once BORN AGAIN, we are new creations, the old is gone, and we are made the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST. We are eternally one with the Father and the Son through the Spirit.

God, our Father, DID EVERYTHING through the cross of Jesus, and we are now Ambassadors of Grace, empowered to live in and from the Father's Heart of Love.

God SO LOVED THE WORLD and everything in it; HE SENT HIS ONLY SON to redeem and restore what was lost, which is us, THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Yes, WE ARE His KINGDOM, children, inheritance, THE lost Sons and Daughters of GOD. That’s a BIG DEAL, don’t you think?

Philippians 2:15 “so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.”

As the Father abides in us, and we abide in Him, through faith, the Father HIMSELF gets to “SO LOVE THE WORLD.” God our Father has RECONCILED ALL THINGS TO HIMSELF. SO, RECKON YOURSELF DEAD TO THIS WORLD AND ALIVE IN CHRIST!

John 3:14-19 "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him."

Our mission is simple: to proclaim the KINGDOM OF GOD and the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Mark 16:15 "And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."

Jesus REDEEMED us and gave us PEACE with the Father, consequently taking on our full punishment for OUR SIN and exchanging it for HIS FULL RESURRECTED LIFE, making us ONE with the Father ONCE AGAIN! (Before the Fall).

John 1:14, 16-17 "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and WE SAW HIS GLORY, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH... FOR OF HIS FULLNESS WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED, AND GRACE UPON GRACE. For the Law was given through Moses; GRACE AND TRUTH were realized through Jesus Christ."

For those IN CHRIST, we LIVE IN AND FROM THE FATHER’S HEART OF LOVE. It’s permanent, and we now have the MIND OF CHRIST; therefore, we know the WILL OF THE FATHER. His will is that no one would perish, and we would all be SAVED.

Ephesians 1:4 “Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love.”
