  • Hi, Thank you for the slides.
    How about the empowerment of the holy spirit in the kingdom of God?
    I reckon that with the kingdom of God, shouldn't it come with the power of healing, the power to free people from sin and bondage, the power to drive out evil spirits, and the power to bring blessings into the lives of others?

  35. 35. Luke 11:19-20 (NIV) 19 Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. (NAS—come upon you) <br />Luke 17:20-21 (NIV) Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." [or among you or in your midst.]<br />
  36. 36. Matthew 11:12 (NIV) 12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing [breaking in], and forceful men lay hold of it. <br />Micah 2:12-13 (NIV) 12 "I will surely gather all of you, O Jacob; I will surely bring together the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture; the place will throng with people. 13 One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out.

  42. 42. THE KINGDOM OF GOD<br />3. A gift to be received.<br />Not something we bring in on our power or by our timing… it is a gift of God’s grace<br />It is not a burden God puts on us. It is a gift. Good news of the kingdom.<br />
  43. 43. Luke 12:32 "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. <br />Mark 10:13-15 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."<br />Hebrews 12:28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.

  47. 47. ENTERED:<br />Through repentance<br />(2) Surrender<br />Matt 6:9-10<br />"This, then, is how you should pray:    " 'Our Father in heaven,    hallowed be your name,  your kingdom come,    your will be done       on earth as it is in heaven.  <br />

For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him." <br />3In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." <br />4"How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!" <br />5Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. <br />
