A Foretaste of Kingdom Righteousness

Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6).”  Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.  So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham. – Galatians 3:6,9

Mysterious Melchizedek, king of righteousness and peace, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days or end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.  Our forerunner, Jesus, is a High Priest forever, according to the Melchizedek priestly order.  (Hebrews 6:19 – 7:2.)

Jesus, who is our King, our righteousness, peace and joy, is forever present within us through the power of the Holy Spirit.  His earthly walk was a vital time of transition by modeling from Mosaic Law to New Covenant grace through the new creation.  He who was with them is in us—the hope of glory.  Him we preach!  (Colossians 1:27-28a).  We have this Treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us (II Corinthians 4:7). We are now His body in on the earth, modeling His move from organizational traditions to organic transitions.  It is our turn to model His New Covenant grace.

The Helper, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.  I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.  A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. – John 14:17-19

The return of Jesus Christ in Spirit took place on the Day of Pentecost, and His presence remains with and in His people today!  The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to us and fills us with His supernatural life so that we may steward all aspects of His kingdom on the earth – today.

 PRAYERFUL CONSIDERATION OF OUR STEWARDSHIP

Will we distill our methods and message down to bare essentials?  Will we jettison all unnecessary baggage?  Will we surrender all to Jesus?  Will we eagerly embrace the directives of the Holy Spirit?  Will we eagerly embrace God’s higher thoughts and higher ways concerning kingdom economy and ministry support?

 “God’s question of you is not, ‘Can I get it to you?’ but ‘Can I get it through you!’”

“The believer’s enrichment is supposed to go through the believer, not accrue to the believer.” –Steve Crosby

Godly men and women have been marinating in the Holy Spirit for long seasons.  They are prepared to prepare others to embrace their destiny.  They are waiting the financial enablement that will be cheerfully and freely given in response to Holy Spirit guidance.  (Please read I Corinthians 9:1-18.)

 If God does not build the house,

the builders only build shacks. – Psalm 127:1a TM

“After a time of decay comes the turning point.  The powerful light that has been banished returns.  There is movement, but it is not brought about by force.  The movement is natural, arising spontaneously.  The old is discarded and the new is introduced.  Both measures accord with the time, therefore no harm results.”

– Ancient Chinese Saying

 There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth. – Ecclesiastes 3:1 TM
