Yesterday I posed the question: "Is Yeshua / Jesus in…
Praise God for His Amazing Grace!
If you haven’t noticed, I don’t really refer to America’s mainstream religion as “the church”.
In the Bible, the Greek word used to identify the true “Church” of God is “Ecclesia”, which means the called-out ones, those who sit in the seat of judgment.
A king’s authority over his subjects
Do you remember seeing any of the movies in which a subject in a kingdom approaches a king?
Maybe the subject was involved in some sort of questionable circumstances and they were going before the king to be adjudicated? I remember a movie that I have about Martin Luther. He had to go before the pope in much the same way. He couldn’t look at, the pope. He was given very strict instructions how to enter, what to do and say, once he was in there, it was just incredible. The pope was being treated as if he were a king. I am not supporting any of this. I am just helping to paint a picture of what ultimate authority looks like.
God delegates authority in His Kingdom
This “judgment” is a place of authority. Yahweh God made his people “kings and priests” within the Kingdom of God in the order of Melchizedek. In that way, you have the ability to sit in a place of authority “IF” ( the biggest word in the Bible you walk in spiritual authority. If you want to, it is available to you. Yeshua said “Whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. That is Kingdom authority.
Kings and Priests in God’s government
As kings and priests, we have the authority to “bind and loose”. When I say He has given you authority, it’s not a blanket authority. It’s not authority over every realm, all of the time. You have spiritual authority over the areas of authority that God has given you – specifically. If you’re an employee, you have authority over the realm of your employment.
If you are a father, a husband, you have authority in that family room. Scripturally speaking, there are four different areas of authority / government. Those four areas are self, family, church and civil government.
Government is the administration of justice. You have been given authority, if nothing else over yourself, your relationship with God and your relationship with the world. Your kingdom authority is very, very real and how you administer that authority is very, very real.
How we live dictates how God deals with us.
Recently I introduced a Scripture in Psalm 18 that addresses this in sort of a unique way.
Psalm 18:25 TPT
Lord, it is clear to me now that how we live will dictate how you deal with us.
There are so many implications to this. I am going to include verse 24 for some context:
I’ve kept my integrity by surrendering to him. And so Yahweh has rewarded me with His blessing. This is the treasure I discovered when I kept my heart clean before his eyes.
V.25 Lord, it is clear to me now that how we live will dictate how you deal with us. Good people will taste your goodness. And to those who are loyal to you, you love to prove that you are loyal and true to them. (I inserted to them).
In case you didn’t notice, this place is a great deal of responsibility for you and me.
As Westerners, we often think that the world revolves around us.
“I want, I want, I want, give me this, give me that and if you don’t I’m gonna have a temper tantrum.
God really doesn’t like to put up with that kind of stuff. The more mature, the more responsible that you are, the more responsibility He will give you and the more He will reveal to you.
If a person attends their church meeting for the token hour per week, goes out to lunch, watches the afternoon matinee, tops it off with dinner an drinks with friends and then does it all again until next week, it is unreasonable for them to think that God is going to reveal a lot to them because “how we live dictates how He deals with us”. Obviously, there will be variations of this but I encourage you to apply it however may be appropriate.
Noah was a righteous man
I would like to share a little story with you. Back in Genesis chapter six, there’s a fellow that you’ve probably heard of before. His name was Noah.
In Genesis 9:6 we read that Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.
Now, depending upon what circle you run in, there are various interpretations of this verse. To me, it has two major elements. Noah was a just man that word “just” is often translated “righteous”. Righteous means being right-minded. It means in our day to be cleansed by the Most-High God: To have your sins forgiven. In other words, Noah was a righteous man. Your margin probably says that He was “upright”. He was “perfect in his generations”.
There are various interpretations of that. I believe it means that his bloodline had not co-mingled with things that they shouldn’t.
“Noah was a righteous man that was upright in his generations, and Noah walked with God”. It’s no accident that it was Noah and his family were chosen to board the Ark. This is why Genesis 6:8 says that Noah found grace in the eyes of Yahweh. Noah found grace in the eyes of Yahweh because he was a righteous man both inwardly and outwardly. He wanted the things of God he wanted every day to live as God wanted him to live. That’s why he was righteous, not because of anything he had done, but because he wanted to be What your way God wanted.
God addresses us accordingly
A common misunderstanding of God, here in America, is that He is just going to give, give, give, give, that he’s going to reveal himself in mighty ways. If he doesn’t we’re in this state of bewilderment, not understanding why he doesn’t.
It’s bewildering to us because we do not enter into his realm, that Kingdom realm in which he resides. He’s the king, He’s God, You’re not. I’m not. And so we enter into His realm. He is the source of life, the source of truth and reality. He can shed light upon us and reveal to us what true life really is. As He does that we respond to Him and He responds to us accordingly.
You have a world of opportunity available to you starting now, starting afresh to enter into that new relationship with Him so that he can begin to deal with you. Perhaps in a deeper way that you have longed for.
It’s waiting for you in that kingdom realm. Praise God.
