In The KINGDOM of God, we are CALLED to THOROUGHLY ENJOY our Sonship

The hour of Sonship has arrived! REJOICE! Celebrate and enjoy your SONSHIP. It's the GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST! Rejoice IN TRUTH ALWAYS! In doing so, you agree with Heaven and spread the Gospel of Grace! You demonstrate you are BORN AGAIN from ABOVE!

John 4:22-24 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

As a Son or Daughter of God, you have some advantages and benefits that, when used, glorify GOD, our Father in Heaven. Meaning God delights when we walk and abide in Sonship.

Galatians 3:26 "For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus."

Do you want to sting the devil, make him reel back in horror, and send him a clear message regarding YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS? Then REJOICE, and REJOICE ALWAYS in the LORD, rejoicing IN every circumstance!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 "Rejoice always... in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

Rejoice IN CHRIST regardless of your circumstances. We fight the good fight of faith THROUGH LOVE. We have been made by love to be loved and to love. So, REJOICE IN THE TRUTH OF LOVE.

Philippians 4:4 "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!"

Our circumstances are NOT THE TRUTH, but we are IN TRUTH when we believe God's Word. Jesus declared, "ONLY BELIEVE!"

Philippians 1:29 "For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake."

I believe Jesus is referencing "His finished works," meaning we are to believe that HE DID IT ALL.

Hebrews 4:3-4 "For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, “AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST,” although His works were finished from the foundation of the world. For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: “AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS. ...For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.”

We demonstrate our BELIEF in Christ as we REJOICE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.

Luke 8:50 "But when Jesus heard this, He answered him, “Do not be afraid any longer; only believe, and she will be made well.”

Rejoicing IN CHRIST, regardless of our outward or inward circumstances, ABSOLUTELY destroys the devil's work. We rejoice because of HIS JOY, which is IN CHRIST.

2 Corinthians 4:6-10 "For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body."

Despite your circumstances, we are called, instructed, and empowered to stand in TRUTH SO THAT WE CAN REJOICE!

1 Peter 1:22 "Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart."

Rejoicing in the Lord DESTROYES the work of the devil, PERIOD. When we rejoice in THE TRUTH, we align in the TRUTH; we simultaneously reject satan's lies. Our rejoicing through our trials glorifies God and destroys the devil. The darker it becomes, the louder we rejoice!

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 "Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. Our momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

We dismantle LIES as we rejoice in truth. So, get your eyes and heart and energy off your circumstances and focus solely on TRUTH, which is IN CHRIST. You, too, are IN CHRIST if you BELIEVE.

Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds IN CHRIST JESUS."

Therefore, regardless of the adversity this world throws at us, THE TRUTH STANDS FOREVER.

John 14:6 "Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

And, the TRUTH IS SO AMAZING, we can authentically REJOICE IN EVERYTHING. Nothing in this world can compare to what we have already received IN CHRIST.

Ephesians 4:5-6 "one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all."

We have been made ONE with TRUTH; therefore, we are ONE IN TRUTH, One in CHRIST.

Romans 12:12 "rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer."

We exercise faith when we rejoice while under attack because we align with the truth! This, to the devil, is like salt to a slug.

2 Corinthians 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."

The Bible is clear; we are called to follow Jesus, and Jesus constantly REJOICED in every circumstance, and He has given us GRACE so that we can do the same!

Philippians 4:4,6 "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."

Yes, we are specifically called to rejoice by SHINING HIS LIGHT. As such, under every circumstance we face, especially the bad circumstances, we are called to REJOICE. That means we walk, live, and abide IN CHRIST, always rejoicing regardless of our adversity.

John 15:4-5 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."

FOLLOWERS are called to live by faith, believing God's Word as TRUTH in Spirit as we literally STAND ON HIS TRUTH BY REJOICING! The tougher the circumstances, the greater the shouts of JOY!

Matthew 16:24 "Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.”

The School of KINGDOM Living has a specific mission and objective. Our mission is to help EVERYONE understand their Identity and Purpose IN CHRIST and walk with them until they get it. Grace fully supplies us in Christ, so let's make it happen.

Colossians 1:13-14 "For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."

We were made in the image and likeness of God, our Heavenly Father, and the Son, Jesus, in order to fulfill the Father's plan of Salvation.

Colossians 1:15-16 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. or by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him."

Our entire identity and purpose is wrapped up and centered on one thing, and one thing only, our IDENTITY AS SONS AND DAUGHTERS of God called to SHINE and REJOICE in all circumstances.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.

We don’t have to try to be a Son of God; we are, by His will, not our own. We don’t have to perform or earn Sonship. It is a gift of His radical love. We have been made a Son by Grace, a gift of God by faith in the finished work of the cross. We never deserved anything, but He willingly gave it ALL - THAT’S LOVE.

Mark 1:17 "And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

Grace is the ABSOLUTE GOODNESS OF GOD, and Grace dwells within us freely as a gift from the Father, the God of ALL LOVE.

Hebrews 4:14 "Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession."

As the only possible HIGH PRIEST, Jesus MADE US RIGHT by making us RIGHTEOUS, HOLY, and BLAMELESS in the FATHER’s SIGHT forever. Once done by the Father, this CANNOT BE UNDONE.

Matthew 12:15 "But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, AND HE HEALED THEM ALL"

1 Peter 1:22 "Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart."
