Overriding The Fallen Kingdom Part II
Continued from "Overriding the Fallen Kingdom"
God’s word is conceptual. What He wants us to understand and believe is the living application of His Word of goodness, not memorization of scripture.
In other words, if we understand what the intent was, we don’t need to worry if we don’t remember the exact wording. The power is in the intent, not the order of the sentence or the time period of language it was written in. (It won’t help us be more powerful by saying thee and thou over you and yours.)
God says He will respect and hold in high esteem those who highly esteem His Word, and who pay attention to it. We respect and honor Him by listening (hearkening to) His words and doing them.
The Bible calls Jesus the “Word”, and if this is so, then He is the embodiment of the Word of God, which includes all the instructions given to man. He is the living and acting out of God’s word and will. He is our example and we are to be following Him, doing just what He did!
Jesus said that if we can catch hold of these ideas, these concepts of the Word, and understand them, letting them abide in us, that we will never die.
Therefore, the only reason a person would die is because of neglecting or rejecting God’s word, or not understanding it.
SO…God has said certain things that are true in the spirit realm, (the heavenly kingdom), and these things are what He will do in any person’s life if he or she does certain things.
But these things He’s promised have no effect on a person or the earth, until each or any particular person seeks His Word, understands and applies it with faith. Living it out demonstrates the belief. So to do it, is believing it.
This earth is still in a fallen state, (under the curse), and mankind is fallen, until a person seeks God and His goodness. When we find God and believe, and we learn of Him and His word, then we are transformed from the fallen kingdom to the eternal kingdom of the Son, who IS God’s word. (Meaning God adopts us into His care, and writes our name in the book of life to be taken into eternity with Jesus.)
But STILL we have to pay attention to the Word (collective Word), learning each individual point, and applying it daily to override the fallen state of the earth and live a supernatural existence here, by using our imagination and our speech to create the circumstances in OUR lives, as it was in Jesus’.
That’s why so many dear Christians, who love God and believe on Jesus, are still sick, still broke and have lives that are a mess rather than having the power of God evident all over them!
If we don’t know what the promises or will of God is, and if we don’t on purpose establish them firmly inside of us as OUR will also, then we will still be a victim and a pawn in the enemy’s game. Yes we’ll have eternal life, but we SHOULD have all the gifts of God and His will showing up while we’re here on earth! We SHOULD know that we’re bigger and stronger than the devil because God is in us now!
“Greater is He that is in me, than he that is
in the world!” 1
God has said that we who believe are “gods”, able to use the co-creative power of speech (the way He did when He formed the worlds), and this incredible gift of God we call our imagination, to enable faith to make the changes. We do it by believing the positive reality of God in our lives as existing here and now on earth for us. We do it by whatever we’re daydreaming about!
If we are playing mental movies of how we’re going to fail or how bad things could get, that’s exactly what we’re going to be getting out of life! How many times have you already lived through every bad thing that might happen as you’re going off to the store, or worrying about your kids, in your mind? You’ve already experienced it emotionally in worry as if it had happened, and you drew that eventuality towards you. (You may never know how close you came to it being real, except for the Lord sending His angels to keep you safe another day so you could understand this principle!)
If we’re playing mental movies on purpose of how we want things to be, according to the positive words of God for us (that He wants only good for us and for us to be empowered with every thing we need to accomplish our assignment on earth – to the end goal of giving Him glory), then we know that’s what is going to come to pass in our lives.
Don’t let your imagination get hold of any negative material to chew on!!
When the apostle said whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, honest etc., think on these things, ...guess what? He wasn’t just saying be a nice guy and have pure thoughts! He was telling us what to substitute our negative, deadly and faithless thoughts with, if we want to LIVE!
In other words, we are to state a good thing that we want and believe is ours, and speak ONLY that good thing, never agreeing verbally with the fallen state’s circumstances around us. We are overcoming those fallen state circumstances by our knowledge of the Word and how to apply it; therefore we have to reject all sight and especially the sound (verbal reports) of those fallen things.
Stop listening to negative predictions and prognoses. Stop watching the news and reading reports of what is happening around us, because if we’re truly trying to live in the spiritual realm God has promised, those fallen state things are no longer applicable to us! They may still apply to your neighbor and your brother in law, but WE are set free by the knowledge of God’s Word and applying it to our life.
We don’t NEED to know the news, or the statistics of heath problems and financial problems. Problems PERIOD belong in the fallen kingdom, not in the super kingdom.
They don’t exist here for us. Our kingdom is to look like the heavenly kingdom, and will begin to look more and more like the heavenly kingdom as we hold fast to our belief in it.
We know what God’s will is because Jesus told us in the Lord’s Prayer. He said to pray that God’s will be done on earth AS it is in heaven. It IS already in Heaven as God wants it to be on earth.
In other words, ‘Lord make my earthly circumstances here on earth, as they are in the spirit realm of your will.’
Is there any poverty in Heaven? Of course not, therefore there shouldn’t be any here on earth. Is there any cancer in Heaven? Of course not, therefore why would God want cancer to be in us here on earth?
Is there divorce or adultery or rebellion in heaven? Of course not! So if there is something you know wouldn’t fly in Heaven, you know it’s existing here only because of the fallen state of the earth and the works of the devil.
The works of the devil were defeated by Jesus on the cross, and because all of our worries, griefs, sins and failures were nailed to the cross with Him, we are to resist and DISAGREE with them here in our lives.
DO NOT AGREE with sickness. Do not agree with lack. There is no lack in God’s Kingdom!! He provides perfectly for His saints. There is no rebellion in Heaven and there shouldn’t be any in our hearts either if we’re serious about following God.
The question is, how serious are we? Do we really want to walk the kingdom walk or are we still trying to have our cake and eat it too? We can’t straddle the fence anymore, Christians. The paths of God and Satan are spreading further and are about to disappear from each other with a huge chasm in between. It’s the gulf between life and death, the one between Heaven and Hell.
Don’t get caught on that fence, or you’ll be ripped apart and Satan will have you for lunch!
This is the day that God is calling you forth from your sins and your childish playthings, from your sleep and your disbelief. This is the day God offers you life or death, blessings or cursing. This is the day He has given you His Word and the explanation of it, and the knowledge of how to use it to be a super kingdom hero rather than an earthly failure.
