The Kingdom of God is founded on seven core elements, from obedience to God's laws to adhering to the family government of man and wife. These seven elements provide a blueprint for living a life of faith and blessing, creating true freedom and prosperity. Discover how to put the Kingdom of God first and experience the victory of a life of faith.
Every kingdom has at least seven elements: social organizations, customs and traditions, language, arts and literature, religion, governing laws, and an economic system. As we put first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, we will find victory (Matthew 6:33).
Putting God's kingdom first includes putting the kingdom's culture first.As a holy nation of priests and kings, we preach the doctrine of the cross and the gospel of the kingdom of God, including:
1. Obedience to God's laws, ordinances, and statutes, including the Ten Commandments. Christ said, "If you love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15). As a matter of fact, these offer guidance to all citizens of the Kingdom of God.
2. A biblical economic system of tithing, sowing, and reaping that includes sound money such as silver and gold (Leviticus 19:36; Proverbs 16:11). God's economic system is opposed to debt servitude and faux monetary systems such as those offered by the fiat money printed by the Federal Reserve, which is not federal and has no reserves. The Federal Reserve is a cartel of private bankers and the seat of the godless Mammon kings.
3. Government of God's kingdom, including individual responsibility, accountability, opposition to anti-Christ serfdom, and statism.According to the "Political Science Dictionary," statism includes "sovereignty vested not in the people but in the national state, and that all individuals and associations exist only to enhance the power, the prestige, and the well-being of the state."
"The concept of statism, which is seen as synonymous with the concept of nation, and corporatism repudiate individualism and exalt the nation as an organic body headed by the Supreme Leader and nurtured by unity, force, and discipline." Statism rejects the notion of God ruling over man and replaces the authority of Christ by implementing a system where man rules over man.
4. Adherence to the family government of man and wife, father and mother, sons and daughters, with the father serving as the spiritual head of the household.The family is the first example of the government of God.
5. Looking unto Jesus as the author and finisher of faith, having no other gods before Jehovah, meaning other protector-providers (Exodus 20:1-3), The taking of oaths facilitates allegiance to other gods. Christ said, "Call no man your father upon the earth; for one is your father, which is in heaven" (Matthew 23:9). Apostle James wrote, "But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by earth, nor by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation" (James 5:12).
6. The language of Kingdom citizens means holding to and speaking the word of truth in faith. Jesus said, "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63).
7. Seeing the local church as the seat of governing authority, where families (called out ones) gather to worship, hear the mysteries of the kingdom through revelation from the Holy Spirit (Matthew 13:11), and be equipped and empowered (Ephesians 4:11-16) to produce, multiply, increase, subdue, and take dominion (Genesis 1:28).
These seven elements are found in every kingdom. I encourage you to ask the Holy Spirit to help you expand on each of these points. Preach to them and teach them. Promote biblical shared values, the unity of the faith, guard against heresy, and be willing to correct the unruly (Revelation 2:20).
