The gospel of the kingdom is… righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Rom 14:17)
Let’s take a look at all the parts to that scripture.
Gospel- Gospel means good news. That is what the Gospel is, GOOD news. News is something that has ALREADY happened.
Everything about the gospel is GOOD NEWS. Jesus wants you to live on earth as you will in heaven. He did everything for you so that you could have abundant life. If the gospel was just for us to get saved and go to heaven then we would all die right after we got saved.
Our mission is to take dominion over all the devil’s works. Read Genesis. The gospel is also that we have restored fellowship with our Father, which means we are to look and act like our Daddy. We are to show and tell the gospel as a witness that Jesus is alive and loves the people of the world. This whole book is about understanding the kingdom and what it is all about.
Kingdom- the kingdom is God’s rule, authority, and dominion. The kingdom is in you, in power, and it heals the sick, casts out demons, and raises the dead. The kingdom is in us, enforcing the devil’s defeat and God’s will on earth as it is in heaven. The kingdom is rightness (we KNOW we are right with God). Peace means there is nothing missing or broken in our lives or any part of our lives. Joy is our strength and the anointing that Jesus walked in. Joy is POWER. All of the kingdom is IN the Holy Spirit. It is not we who do miracles, but the Holy Spirit living is us. The Holy Spirit prays through us, then does what He prays! This end time revival is all about THE HOLY SPIRIT and our relationship WITH Him!
Witness- evidential or witness. Witness means proof, personal knowledge, or evidence. When we bring Heaven on earth in people’s lives through the kingdom, we are giving witness that Jesus is alive and loves them. It is personal!
The last and end time revival is a revival of God’s people awakening to who they are in Christ. God’s people will awaken to the fact that they are the righteousness of God, and because of that, they will stand up, manifest, and enforce the defeat (JUSTICE and JUDGMENT) of the devil in their lives and the lives of those around them. The kingdom is peace and joy. The kingdom is a kingdom of LOVE, according to Col 1:13.The children of God will demonstrate His love out on the street and in their daily lives with signs, wonders, and miracles. God’s kids who are full of peace and joy will bring in this end time harvest with JOY. Joy gives us strength and is the answer for the oppression of the devil. In the chapter on Joy, I go into great detail and provide many scripture on why I believe this. Jesus is coming back for a GLORIOUS BRIDE, not a fearful, weak one.
Too many people are in fear because of the stuff happening in the world today. God wants to fill His kids with joy. Rodney Howard Brown just touched the surface with the laughter movement. There is more to come. There is joy in the presence of God and we need His joy for this time. There will be laughter, peace, and the “best wine” for new wine skins. Joy is strength and that is what we need for these end times. Joy is also what stops the oppression of the devil.
New end time wine will be poured out to this last generation, and they will be filled with the Spirit and drunk on His presence. (Acts 2, Joel 2). Also take a look at John 2. The wedding miracle where He turned water into wine was the FIRST miracle He did to SHOW HIS GLORY. The Holy Spirit is the water and the wine. But Jesus said to me that in these end times, He is pouring out the wine into new wine skins.
The Holy Spirit will be the star of this revival and the focus will be relationship. It will come from intimate times of WORSHIP. … times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. (Acts 3:20) Worship is what Satan used to do, but now it is the very thing that makes him run when we do it. It is time to arise and shine, for the glory of the Lord has risen….
There will be Heavenly activities as in the Old Testament and the New (former and latter rain, Joel 2), angels, transportation, glory clouds, fire, dead rising, unusual miracles and signs, things we never imagined. Relationship is what God desires. Important signs of this last revival will be DREAMS, VISIONS and PROPHECY of the UNSAVED. Jesus will visit the unsaved in dreams and visions (Acts 2, Joel 2).
The gospel of salvation has been preached and that is good. We want souls to be saved, but that is not the WHOLE GOSPEL. What Jesus preached was “justice.” I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment (declare justice). (Matt 12:18)
Justice is EVERYTHING God gave us in the Garden of Eden to be restored to us. That has been done, through the work of Jesus on the cross, but unless you go back and look at what Adam lost in the garden, the devil will deceive you and keep your stuff. You have to KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST, you are the righteousness of God IN Christ, and because of that you can walk in ALL BOLDNESS! Here is a list of what Jesus preached.
- Preach the gospel (gospel means GOOD NEWS) to the poor. The kingdom is here, they don’t have to be poor anymore. (The prosperity gospel is part of the kingdom and IT IS THE FIRST THING JESUS LISTED) Like when Pharaoh would not let God’s people go, we too will be delivered with restoration of all things. Take a look at Joel 2.
- Heal the brokenhearted.
- Give freedom to the captives (captives of sickness, poverty, fear, demons, death, etc.)
- Recovery of sight to the blind (Healing both physically and spiritually)
- Set the oppressed free (joy is what the Bible says sets the oppressed free)
- Proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord (financial freedom)
The gospel of the kingdom is the gospel Jesus preached. It includes body, soul, spirit, finances, health, ALL areas of life. It includes living on earth as we will in heaven. We are to take authority on earth and command things to line up with God’s will. Jesus needs to get what He paid for us to have. Remember, we are the kings and that Jesus is, “King of kings.” We should be living like kings. Our spoken word is a command in the spiritual realm.
The kingdom is casting out demons, healing the sick, prospering the poor, raising the dead, and much more. (Matt 9:35, Matt 12:28, Matt 12:18) Jesus showed judgment and justice.
Let’s take a look at the main components of this last awakening and revival.
These are all kingdom signs.
- Righteousness-minded and confident (righteousness)
- Receive the joy of the Lord manifested in laughter (joy)
- They will walk in peace and authority (kingdom authority, peace)
- They will walk in the presence of Holy Spirit, manifested in drunkenness on new wine. They will have a holy boldness that will offend many religious people. John 2 and Acts 2
- They will LIVE and move in many signs, wonders and miracles, including the supernatural that the new age has stolen from God’s people. (see my chapter on signs and wonders)
- They will have great wealth available to them (Acts 3:21, restoration of all things, and to help promote the gospel)
- They will walk in great faith because of their relationship with the Lord. (the kingdom is IN the Holy Spirit)
Too many people are in fear because of the stuff happening in the world today. We need to be bold and strong in the Lord. The JOY of the Lord is my STRENGTH (Ps 138:3). He has made me BOLD with STRENGTH.
The Lord gives STRENGTH to His people and blesses His people with PEACE. (Ps 29:11)
How will this be done? Through worship (Ps 102:8) It will all be done by the Holy Spirit in us, not by might or power but by My Spirit says the Lord.
Don’t walk in fear about this end time bad stuff happening in the world, instead have this attitude:
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me. (Ps 138:7-8)
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at [your] side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. (Is 60:1-6) NJK
What do you have to do to bring this end time awakening and revival?
1. Get desperate to live only for God, set aside all things that hinder you, weigh you down, or cause fear.
I got rid of all magazines, newspapers, TV and worldly radio. I haven’t watched TV, read a newspaper or radio (I listen to ONLY certain Christian radio once in a while) for about five years! I watch videos and DVD and even than God has a talk with me about some of them. I hate the news the most. BUT you do what God tells you to do, not what I do. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you if there is any thing in you (sin, unforgiveness, attitudes, etc.) that hinders you from getting deeper in the things of God.
2. Spend time in praying IN TONGUES. (read my chapter on the Holy Spirit) Remember that God is going to POUR OUT OF His Spirit onto all flesh. His Holy Spirit is IN YOU. So the more time you pour out of your spirit, praying in THE SPIRIT, the more rivers of living water fill up the earth. (Act 2, Joel 2)
