The Preached Gospel of the Kingdom has an Inherent Supernatural Power that Triumphs over Evil

Part II

The Preached Gospel of the Kingdom has an Inherent Supernatural Power that Triumphs over Evil

Darkness and evil cannot remain in the presence of the preaching of the kingdom of God. This is where the invisible kingdom becomes visible! When through the foolishness of preaching men may be saved through believing on the Name of Jesus the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 1:21
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

There is a war raging between the culture of hate and death and the culture of love and life.
Our present world is quickly sinking deeper into the culture of hate and death, but Praise God! He has given us the authority and power to preach the gospel of the Kingdom. This is the culture of Love and life!

In the end the kingdom of Love and Life will triumph over all the kingdoms of darkness and death! So then it behooves us to learn exactly what the gospel of the kingdom is so that we may once again preach it with power and authority.

In Luke chapter 10 Jesus told the seventy that nothing would be able to harm them as they went forth to spread the gospel of the kingdom of God.

Jesus said that He also saw Satan fall from heaven like lightening!

What could this mean?

The gospel of the kingdom of God has power over Satan and devils. Thus when Jesus came to usher in the kingdom of God the power of the kingdom of God that will be established in the Age to come has the power to reach back into the present evil age in which we now live and release its authority and power of all evil.

Therefore we may only be defeated if we fight this battle with flesh and blood.

Our battle is not against flesh and blood.

We must learn what the gospel of the kingdom of God is and then we must share it others.

It is the only way to have victory over hate and death!

This gospel is God’s way!

We also see this preaching of the gospel of the kingdom of God by Phillip and Paul and others throughout the Book of Acts.

Acts 8:12-14
12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
Acts 20:25
And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.

Acts 28:31
Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

From these scriptures in the book of Acts we may conclude this must have been a part of the Apostles Doctrine of Acts 2:42:

Acts 2:42
42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Reading Acts 1:3 we find that Jesus of Nazareth in His resurrected body spent forty days teaching those things concerning the kingdom of God.

Acts 1:1-4
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

We learn when this Gospel of the Kingdom was heralded forth miraculous healings took place, devils were cast out, and many were given access to enter into this kingdom of God.

What are the benefits, if any to Kingdom Citizens today of this Kingdom Dynamic?

To be continued. . .

What is the Preaching of the Kingdom of God?

What what is the Preaching of the Kingdom of God
 
What is the preaching of Gospel of the Kingdom of God and what are the dynamic effects upon people when this gospel is preached?
 
The subject matter of the kingdom of God has been and continues to be a topic of great interest to me for many reasons. One of which is the importance of this topic in the scriptures, and the weight Jesus Christ of Nazareth placed upon the preaching of the message of gospel of the kingdom of God in the entire world.
 
First of all, we see Jesus actually preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God throughout the Gospels.
Matthew 4:23
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
 
Matthew 9:35
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
 
Mark 1:14
Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
 
Luke 8:1
And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,
 
 
After the Lord along with His 12 Apostles preached the kingdom in very city, He then sent out the Seventy in groups of two.
 
Luke 10:1
10 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
 
2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
 
The Lord sent them out with authority and power to preach the kingdom of God and when their mission was complete the seventy returned to the Lord with joy:
 
Luke 10:8-12
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
 
9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
 
10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
 
11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
 
12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
 
The Lord rejoiced with the Seventy not because the devils were subject to them through His name, but because He saw Satan fall from heaven.
 
Luke 10:17-24
17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
 
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
 
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
 
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
 
21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
 
22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
 
23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
 
24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
 
 
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the spirit! The Greek word here for rejoiced is, agalliáō.
 
HELPS Word-studies
21 agalliáō (from agan, “much, very” and 242 /hállomai, “jump, leap”) – properly, getting so glad one jumps in celebration; to exult (boast) because so experientially joyful.
 
What is this telling us?
 
This is showing us the emotions the Lord felt in that when He rejoiced He was ecstatic with emotion and was actually jumping for joy!

The Kingdom of God and Quantum Physics

Kingdom Dynamics

The Kingdom of God and Quantum Physics

Making the Invisible Visible

Lately I have been reading some things about Quantum Physics that have helped gain greater insights into the scriptures. A few days ago a thought hit me concerning a few scriptures that reveal that believers in Christ have access to the Holy of Holies in heaven and that we are seated in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 2:6; 1:3; 3:10) What I have been pondering has taken me until now to try to communicate a bit about what I have learned.

In the gospels there is an account of the Samaritan women who Christ speaks to one day at a well where she is drawing water. Most know this section as the Woman at the Well. (John 4:5-26) What I am referring to exactly is the response the Lord gave this woman after she asked Jesus on what mountain they should worship God? The Lord responded, “The Father seeks those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.” In other words His concern is not what mountain or church you worship God in, but the quality of this worship from wherever one wishes to worship Him.

Quantum Physics teaches that all men and women on the earth possess a spirit with which they are connected to not only one another, but also everything else in the universe. The Bible calls this spirit I am now referring to as the “spirit of man.”(1 Cor 2:11; Job 32:8, Proverbs 20:27; Ecclesiastes 3:21)

When God created Adam He made his body out of the dust, then breathed into Adam the breath of life and he became a living soul. So then all men and women born into this life since Adam are comprised of a spirit, soul, and body. (Genesis 2:7; I Thessalonians 5:23)

If all men and women have spirit, soul, and body what differentiates between the believer and unbeliever? Is there any difference between what the Bible calls the natural man and the spiritual or new man? There is a difference and the distinction occurs when one is born again or regenerated by the spirit of God. However, this regeneration does not immediately affect the body, or soul of the individual, but does renew completely the spirit of man from the natural to the spiritual. So then the natural man is changed into a new man who now has had his spirit renewed via Holy Spirit.

Yes the natural man of spirit (unregenerated), soul and body is connected not only to other humans, but also to every living thing in the entire ever expanding universe. In other words the spirit of man has free access in the spirit realm to things which are not as yet visible. This includes three distinct heavens, or layers of heavens, consisting of earth’s surrounding atmosphere, the second heaven which begins where our atmosphere (first heaven) ends and terminates where the third heaven begins.

This third heaven is where God the Creator (Hebrews 11:3) abides along with His glorified Son Jesus the Messiah, and the holy angels. The scriptures teach that those who have been “born again of incorruptible seed” have been given access to this Third Heaven or Holy Place.

This Third heaven was mentioned by Jesus of Nazareth in John chapter three when He was speaking with Nicodemus. Jesus told Nicodemus that unless a man be born again they could not see the kingdom of God. In this same chapter of John, Jesus said unless a man be born of the spirit they could not enter into this Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is presently located in this Third heaven where God rules over all.

Jesus also told Nicodemus where he, Jesus, had come from. (John 3:3-15)

When Christ taught His disciples “how” to pray (Luke 11) He said:

Our Father Who art in heaven. . .

Thy kingdom come. . .

Thy will be done. . .

In earth as it is in heaven. . .

Seems as though we should be praying and expecting God’s kingdom to come from heaven and rule over this earth. This will occur as the scriptures show in the Age to come sometime in the future.

So we learn the location of the Kingdom of God today is not yet established in the earth but is located in the third heaven where God now rules over His Kingdom. This Kingdom will one day in the Age to come be established on the earth; however until then we are living in the Present Evil Age where evil has its way and surrounds us on every side.

One other thing that is totally awesome in light of what QP teaches is Quantum Entanglement which explains how the Kingdom in the Age to come has the power and authority to reach back into this Present Evil Age and bestow Kingdom power and blessings on those who have accepted Christ as Lord, and had their spirit regenerated to Holy Spirit, and are also endeavoring to live for Christ today. In other words, these present day kingdom citizens who allow Christ the King to reign in their hearts in their daily lives may enjoy the authority and blessings of this coming kingdom today. This is true even though we are susceptible to corruption and evil. This is why Jesus of Nazareth taught His disciples that the kingdom of God or heaven is near, or has come unto you. He told them the kingdom of God is at hand. The kingdom is close to you! The rich blessings of the kingdom of the Age to come, with all of its blessings are ours NOW! All we have to do is simply seek this kingdom first, and live life God’s way, and not the world’s way. Then all of those future blessings may be ours to-day!

In conclusion if only that which is perfect and holy may enter into this Third Heaven where only Holy beings abide, then the body and soul of man are excluded at this time as that portion of body and soul have not yet been regenerated. However those whose spirit have been regenerated and changed to Holy Spirit which is called the New Man does have access into the heavenly places where God dwells in His kingdom.

When Christ told the Samaritan woman at the well that “God is seeking those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth, He was telling her that it makes no difference from where they worship because those who will one day possess this regenerated Holy Spirit may worship the Father God in the Third heaven and earth because they have freely been given access to this Holy place via Holy Spirit. (Hebrews 10:19)

It is in the regenerated spirit in which we worship God in spirit and in truth and we do it as Quantum Physics explains . . . because we are connected by spirit to this entire universe, but not only this but in addition believers have had their spirit of man regenerated via Holy Spirit which gives access NOW to enter into the Holy Place in order to worship God not from any mountain or location here on earth but in His very Holy Presence in the Third Heaven. So then when true believers worship God they do not face any earthly location, but direct their worship towards heaven.

The scriptures also teach that the Saints or sanctified ones may also be in more than one place because the scripture tells us that we are now seated together with Christ in heavenly places even though we do have a body and a soul. (Ephesians 2:6). It is in the spirit that we are seated in heavenly places because our soul and body do not have access as yet for they have not been changed. Flesh and Blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God but the regenerated spirit has access now to enter in to heaven and the holy place with absolute God-given boldness.

This also explains why one day in a moment of time this mortal shall put on immortality and the corruptible shall put on incorruption. The reason why we must have the soul and the body changed is so it may become one again or unified with the spirit in its ultimate perfected form forever. (I Corinthians 15:53-54)

So then we see Quantum Physics and Quantum Entanglement at work in order to assist us in gaining greater understanding of the things Jesus of Nazareth and other spiritual men and women knew and taught so many centuries ago.

There is so much more to be discovered in the scriptures as we plod ahead living in a “Kingdom Dynamic” so to speak with one another, the Creator, and His Son Jesus Christ.

Go Where You Want to Go with Christ Living in Your Heart


Some years ago I was in a quandary about knowing exactly what the Lord wanted me to do with my life. I was earnestly groaning from within and reaching out to Him with expectations of getting an answer from Him.

Well after about five hours of intensity I finally got my answer in no uncertain terms.

Without going into the details of what exactly transpired, my answer from Him came and it was simple and straight to the point:

In His graciousness He revealed the following to me:

Frank I created the earth for you to enjoy!

Now go where you want to go, and do what you want to do, with me living in your heart!

This totally freed me from a religious bondage of the work of the ministry that I was in and allowed me to begin enjoying life as He intended for me to do so.

Does this means that I have abandoned my love for Him for earthy desires? Absolutely not!

What it means is that each day we (The Lord and I) walk together and enjoy not only His creation, but also the people He loves so dearly.
