Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
Church era to Kingdom era.....yes. There is absolutely a shift happening....but here is what I see. It is really simple....if it is complicated, and you need a PHD or lengthy explanations then it isn't the gospel.
Here is what God is doing...
He is correcting THE CHURCH, not making it obsolete...is the church broken? Yes! Is THE CHURCH in God's blueprints until the end of time? Absolutely! What God is doing, is shifting our thinking and DOing..into BEing the kingdom. THE CHURCH will always be THE CHURCH, but God just wants those in the church to realize that the KINGDOM is inside of them, for them to release. Kingdom era just means that wisdom and revelation of all that you possess becuase of Christ is yours to share. And when we get that...the church will begin to function properly again. Let's not complicate it...the last season's and era's have been filled with crazy stuff that has distracted us from the simplicaity of Christ and all He did and all He has afforded us. This new era is an era of grace...because to understand that the kingdom resides inside you...is to abide, and only comes through grace. The church era...wants religon to rule and reign...the church era wants to rob people of their God given grace and to make it a system of hoops that need jumped through. Grace and kingdom living includes victory and freedom, and power.
There is an army rising up...with understanding of their position in the kingdom and understanding of the fullness of the kingdom that resides inside them. They do not need ministries, or man-given positions, heirarchy or systems and theories..they will simply release the kingdom through gifts of the Spirit, signs and wonders following everywhere they go. The kingdom era can already be seen in small pockets of people...but soon the church will be flipped upside down by the goodness of God.
Something my Pastor said being Regional minded is the same as Kingdom minded. Kingdom minded just means thinking outside of JUST the church, but taking the Church into the World. Being Kingdom minded means using our gifts and talents outside of the 4 walls as well as inside. Jesus was Kingdom minded. Wasnt some big organizational thing, He just went around and did HIS thing and loved people and spoke truth everywhere and anywhere! And whats awesome is we can do the same thing!
Key is tackling one spot at a time. Tackle the town. Tackle the county. Then the region. Then the State. Then the Country. Then 2 countries. The the world. :) I love how God works!
