Luke 17:20-21(KJV) …the kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Right from the foundation of the world God intended to extend His Kingdom from heaven to earth. His eternal plan, which would be manifested, according to the scriptures, is to establish His reign here on earth. The physical dimension and takeover of God’s kingdom over this earth would happen when the Lord returns with His saints and the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ. We shall literally reign over every territory of this earth for a thousand years(see Revelation 20:4), and we would reign forever over the new heavens and new earth that would come thereafter (see Revelation 21).
Satan thought he had won when he got Adam to sin. When Jesus came into the scene, satan had Him killed and thought he had won again. Both Satan and his demons never knew the wisdom of God “…for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory”(1 Corinthians 2:8).
Jesus Christ is the real deal. He came to establish the Kingdom of God here on earth. Today, everyone that accepts the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and believe in Him has the kingdom of God literary within them. Such who live submitted to the kingdom is an heir of the throne of the kingdom (Romans 8:17) and is going to reign with Christ at the physical establishment of that Kingdom (Revelation 3:21).
When asked by the Pharisees about the kingdom, Jesus said, “…the kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” He was telling them that the Kingdom of God had come. Many of them did not believe in Him because they expected a more spectacular arrival of the kingdom, but that was how they missed out. Jesus was the physical carrier of the kingdom but they knew it not. We are carriers of the kingdom but the world does not know. God is fulfilling His eternal plan through us already, for as more people receive Christ as Lord and Saviour, the more the Kingdom of God is spreading.
As you go into today, remember that you are a carrier of God’s kingdom. This is an awesome privilege.
Prayer: Dear Father, I thank You for Your eternal plan and I thank You for making me part of it. As a carrier of Your Kingdom, I go ahead today, recruiting more people to be part of the Kingdom. I am not slack towards it, as I look forward to the establishment of the Kingdom physically, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
