THE KINGDOM SPIRIT3

 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations,” Psalm 145:13.

In the last 2000 years, many ideologies, philosophies and kingdoms have arisen at different times and in different climes. Many of them appeared so formidable that at the zenith of their civilization, men thought they would never collapse. Some of these includes the Egyptian civilization, Roman civilization, Assyrian civilization, the Ottoman Empire, among others. In the same way, there were philosophies that dominated the social and political space for such a long time that many thought the final solution to socio-political challenges of society had been unraveled.

Today, all the kingdoms, empires and civilization have all collapsed. In some instances, there is no trace that such civilizations ever existed. All these tell us that anything built by man no matter how good or beautiful will eventually collapse. At the peak of the Roman civilization, it would have been impossible to imagine that it would cease to exist at some point. The only Kingdom that has not failed, can never and will never fail is the Kingdom of God. 2,000 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the kingdom of God has not only survived but continues to wax stronger. It is indeed a privilege to be part of this glorious kingdom. A kingdom that is everlasting where the rule of God cuts across all generations (Psalm 145:13)

To enable us operate in this kingdom, we have been given the kingdom spirit. The question we need to ask ourselves is why would God look at us and decide to put his Spirit inside us. There are blessings, gifts and promises that God has made available for citizens of this kingdom that would remain inaccessible without the kingdom spirit and activation of the mind of Christ. No matter what anybody does, until the kingdom spirit is fed and nurtured, the things that God ordained for your life from the foundation of the world will never be established (Ephesians 2:10)

The kingdom Spirit is not meant for pursuing small and mundane things. God has made tremendous investments in our lives and He is expecting fruits. God needs us here to turn things around positively wherever we find ourselves. Beyond the service we render in church, God expects us to positively impact our families, immediate environment, our nation, etc. to achieve these requires the kingdom spirit and an activated mind of Christ. Many believers are struggling with love, giving, etc because they have not fed their kingdom spirit. Love is a fruit of the spirit. Until a man develops his kingdom spirit, he cannot have the capacity to love. The same applies to giving and other areas of living.

We must always ask God for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. This is the only way we can identify His hope of calling upon our lives Ephesians 1:18. Thereafter, our kingdom spirit empowered by an activated mind of Christ must be deployed to establish
