Study extract from message by Rev. Funke Ewuosho
Mathew 6:13 NKJV
And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen
Psalm 145:10-13 (NKJV)
”All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, and Your saints shall bless You. They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power, to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.”
The kingdom of God is supernatural
First of all, the kingdom of God is supernatural, it is a spiritual kingdom, it is not physical and it is not worldly.
The kingdom of God is universal
God’s kingdom is universal. It includes and covers all. It is present and occurring everywhere. There is no part of the universe where you do not see the kingdom of God. And because the kingdom of God is universal, it has rules, laws and principles that are also universal: for example; the law of sowing and reaping, the law of giving and receiving and the law of work.
The kingdom of God operates by seed principle
God’s kingdom operates by the seed principle. See the parable of the sower and the parable of the mustard seed. Everything in the kingdom of God starts as a seed. God gives seed to the sower. Everybody has something that God has given to them to sow.
We must sow the seed because seeds do not amount to much if they are not sown. They do not germinate unless they are sown. It is when seeds are sown that they generate a harvest. The tiniest of all seeds will become a mighty tree, but it must be sown.
Still under the sowing principle, we must always plant the right seed for the desired or intended harvest because it is whatever a man sows that he will reap. If you want to reap love, you plant love.
The kingdom of God is everlasting
God’s kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, from generation to generation.
The kingdom of God has mysteries
The kingdom has mysteries. In Mark 4:11 And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables.”
