Restoring God's Kingdom on Earth

  1. 1.  …to have God leading us with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night?  have our clothes and sandals not wear out even after 40 years of use?  …to have manna from the sky and water from the rock - direct daily provision from God?
  2. 2. “…Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one”
  3. 3.  The earlier slide describes theWilderness.  Canaan was occupied by other kingdoms. Israel was instructed to possess their land.  God promised victory, but Israel had to fight to establish God’s Kingdom in Canaan.
  4. 4.  Wilderness was actually place of safety and provision for the Israelites.  But God’s will was for the Israelites to conquer Canaan, the Promised Land – safety and provision was not His ultimate plan for them.  Likewise, God’s will is for the Church today to possess its Promised Land, not just safety and provision.
  5. 5. Christ Christ through Church Man Satan GOD EDEN: Dominion given to Man (Gen 1:26)
  6. 6. Christ Christ through Church Man Satan GOD  FALL: Satan tricked Man into transferring dominion (see Lk 4:5-8) God’s restorative plan revealed (Is 9:1-7)
  7. 7. Christ Christ through Church Man Satan GOD  CROSS: Authority on earth retaken by Christ Powers & authorities disarmed & paraded (Col 2:15) All authority delegated to the Church (Matt 16:19)
  8. 8. Christ Christ through Church Man Satan GOD  PRESENT: Church received full authority from Christ, but Satan still has possession “He must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet” (1 Cor 15:24-25) Dilution of Kingdom Mandate: salvation without influencing societal culture
  9. 9. Christ Christ through Church Man Satan GOD  2nd COMING: Christ returns to re-establish complete dominion on earth Christ hands over dominion to the Father (1 Cor 15:24)
  10. 10.  Keep believers distracted  Self- and world-pre-occupation rather than on “the field God has assigned to us” – 2 Cor 10:13  Keep believers living below potential  “I have a destiny …born for such a time as this”  Awakened but not arisen
  11. 11.  Keep the Church tactical, local, uncoordinated and defensive.  Retain monopoly of power in society; minimise Church influence on society.  Limited vision to advance the Kingdom of God  Church-secular divide: ‘Thy will be done in heaven but not on earth’ What defines earthly society?
  12. 12. 1. Arts & Entertainment 2. Business & Economy 3. Communications & Media 4. Doctrine & Religion 5. Education 6. Family 7. Government
  13. 13.  Church:  Strategic, Kingdom mindset  Advance into societal mountains/gates  Believers:  Understand power of the Cross  Know , declare and fulfill God’s plan  Focus on Kingdom rather than blessing or self-preservation ▪ Rev 12:11 “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb …word of their testimony …did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death…”  Operate under spiritual authority ▪ Jas 4:7 “Submit yourselves then to God. Resist the devil …”
