Do you remember the statement concerning the parable of the fig tree? Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. In order for you to grow in the Kingdom, your mind must go through the process of changing into a Kingdom mindset. It is a process. The ambassador Paul was right on point when he made this statement to the believers in Rome: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Notice the word "renewing" which is an action word (a verb). Renewing is ongoing. You should constantly be putting new information from God's Constitution in your mind and meditating on it...cementing it to your mind so it will come to you in times of trouble and weakness. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Note that I didn't say a new revelation from some other author or from a new book. You must always be under the guidance of the Governor (the Holy Spirit). He is your teacher while you are here on earth. Are you aware that the Holy Spirit was left here to assist you while you are here on earth? Are you aware that when He is with you and in you, you will have perfect peace? Jesus said this: “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." I am a living witness to this.
Now, having said that, when you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (our Governor) you must keep feeding your mind with the Lord God's Constitution, especially in this age of social media. There are many people with distorted information, leading people astray from the Kingdom and into the pit of religion. Let me share with you what our Lord and King stated and compared the Kingdom to: Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
Before I go any further, allow me to share this with you. Leaders who claim to preach Kingdom but always want to be in the forefront and be catered to aren't being led by the Governor (Holy Spirit). Did you notice what the King stated concerning leaven or yeast? Yeast is never noticed, only the changes it makes to it's environment. When you are in the Kingdom, it's not about you; it's about Him, meaning King Jesus. It's about serving God's people. In essence, the real challenge of living the Kingdom life is this: How much faith do you put in your King? Can you serve Him without pride or ego? When troubles and trials come, when things don't happen as you want them to; do you trust Him, no matter what?
My final words to you: When you start taking credit for what the Lord God has done in your life and others, that is the beginning of the end of you. Here is an example of what I mean: Now Herod had been very angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon; but they came to him with one accord, and having made Blastus the king’s personal aide their friend, they asked for peace, because their country was supplied with food by the king’s country.
So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not of a man!” Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died. So remember, it is all about the King!
