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.
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.
And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
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:
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.
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?
