Becoming the Kingdom of Our God & Of His Christ

And the seventh angel trumpeted; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)

To God's ambassadors in chains and to all who stand in the love of the truth. Grace and peace be multiplied to you, through the name of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua haMashiach/Jesus Christ! There is power in ha Shem! (The Name!)

In the film "The Hiding Place," about the life of Corrie Ten Boom, I will always remember Corries sister Bessie explaing the fact that there are two kingdoms, which exist. (Matthew 12:32)

God calls this present world," an "evil world system, or kingdom." (Galatians 1:3-4) The god of this world, (Satan) blinds the minds of those who refuse to believe God's word. (2 Cor. 4:3-4) The will of God is not in harmony with this present world system, nor it with Him. (1 John 2:15-17) We are living in a time in which the handwriting is written on the wall. God's prophetic will is for the nations and kingdoms of this world to not perish but that they become the kingdom of our God and of Mashiach/Messiah. God is looking upon Modern Babel, saying: The people are one. Let us go down. There has been and there will be a shaking of the structures raised. We have come seriously close to the scattering read of in God's word. Mashiach stands at the door of the sheepfold, to put forth His own sheep, and to lead them that they might follow only Him, for He calls us by His name. (John 10:4, Genesis 11:6-8) These are the days in which Heavenly Jerusalem, as a bride adorned for her husband, wearing fine linen clean and white, shall go forth and shall touch those on earth. The fine linen is the "righteous acts" of the saints. The call is going out to all who will hear: Spirit and the Bride say "Come," to whosoever will. (Rev. Rev. 22:17) If you don't live your life, walking in the Spirit, you may not see God's kingdom come, for it comes not with (outward) observation. If God's people don't "Come out and be separate," if Christians, mix the holy and profane; they'll ne double minded, not having their senses exercized to discern good and evil. (Hebrews 5:14)

Nothing in scripture is any more emphatic than God's express command that the minds of Christians must be renewed or transformed, through the power of His Word. (Romans 12:1-2) God further states the necessity of "no compromise" with the inhabitants of the land, saying: "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate saith the Lord." (2 Corinthians 6:17)


Emperor Constantine tried to weld or merge the two kingdoms, God's kingdom and the kingdom of this present evil world, into one world kingdom. The mixture in the cup is being drunk by compromised Christianity still. God has not changed. His message is still clear. "My kingdom is NOT of this world." "Touch not the unclean thing." (2 Cor. 6:17) Sanctify or separate yourselves unto me, says the Lord, and I will be a Father to you and you will be My sons and daughters. (2 Cor. 6:117-18, John 18:36) Many believers today do not understand the concept of sanctification very well. We believe that we are "sanctified by the blood of Messiah/Mashiach." And so we are. But Yeshua, who knew no sin, nevertheless saw the need to "sanctify Himself, to set Himself apart," for the will and purposes of God. (John 17:19) Yeshua's message to believers today is still: Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)


Yeshua/Jesus taught us to pray to the Heavenly Father in this way: "May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:9-10) Do you observe as I do that in our churches across the world today, we sing about the kingdom of God, but frequently allow "worldly kingdoms" to stand in our lives, as believers? Yeshua/Jesus commands us as believers to seek the kingdom first, and all else shall be added to us. (Matthew 6:33) The time to preach or to announce to this world that there is a NEW GOVERNMENT called the kingdom of God is now! God has declared that this kingdom of God shall be preached for a witness in ALL the world, before the end comes. (Matthew 24:14) In the last days, God's Kingdom or Government will set up a kingdom which shall NEVER be destroyed. I recall an incredible prophetic word given for Belgium called "Belgium Is A Lion's Whelp." In this word, God said so great would be the impact of that which He was about to do, that things would NEVER be the same. This is done not by the enticing words of mans wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. (Matthew 1:14-15)


Yeshua/Jesus said: Except you become as a little child, you shall not see the kingdom of heaven! We have an adopted daughter who is 3 years old. She was adopted from Romania, but we went through many trials and tribulations for 3 years prior to her adoption, and we prayed. She is like the child, born of Elkanah and Hannah's prayers.

The first thing Cezanni (Zani) does when she wakes up, is to sit in the living room and to praise the Lord. She does this with great joy, and she cares more about this than breakfast or any other thing. Cezanni is in no hurry, and she praises the Lord for a long time, and throughout the day. It's edifying to be around her. Since she could talk, she, speaking by the Spirit, has said strange things, such as "Aijalon, I recognize you."

Cezanne at times sings this from her carseat in the back seat of the car. What's she talking about? God's miracle working power! Now she tells us that she wants a sibling. Currently we have applied to adopt from the Ukraine. Again, we have been through one spiritual battle after another. But we look to the Lord. We know that when we walk through that orphanage, God will help us to pick out that child, just like when Samuel was sent to the sons of Jesse, and he knew by the Spirit that David was the one God had chosen.

I spoke with the adoption agency director's wife yesterday, and she took time to share with me that there are many things happening with adoptions right now, that are slowing things down, and making things difficult, in a number of countries. In Kazakukstan, she says because of SARS, it's difficult to obtain a visa for adopted children. Remember the orphans of this world in your prayers.

We have an older daughter named Amber Nicole, whom God has spoken some things regarding her future ministry. When she was about 5 or 6 she would sing the anointed spontaneous "song of the Lord." Cezanni's Dad, who loves to worship on the piano, would play instrumentally and Amber would respond with a prophetic word, or song in the Spirit. As she has gotten older, we have seen the spiritual warfare against her. In 2000, she went through a major trial, and has since become more self conscious, and not as spontaeous in her worship. But we are believing God to heal and restore Ami, who was named for the "amber cloud" of the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel.

After we became believers, God began to teach our family about "kingdom authority." There were areas of our lives, that God was laying claim on," and "renewing our minds to through the godly principles of His word, as part of His Lordship over us. These included:


In Christian circles these days, we hear a lot about pulling down strongholds over regions and taking cities for God. This past week, as we were praying regarding a situation in a major city in America, God began to speak to me of the fact that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our God and of His Christ. He reiterated how this will be accomplished, by placing special emphasis upon the crucial impact of anointing, in breaking the yoke of suffering and oppression. Satan has blinded the eyes of the average Christian, to his or her full potential, and the power of God's anointing in their lives.

Many years ago, while in the midst of a trying time, we sought the Lord, and He heard us, and delivered us out of all of our fears. We asked no individual for a prophetic word. The answer was sent to us from God's Kingdom, and it did not manifest as a manifestation of the "kingdoms of this world."

God's answer came suddenly "and by the anointing Yeshua/Jesus broke the yoke," in the form of a prophecy from the British Isles. It said: Tell it! Utter it! It spoke of the unity of God's warriors coming in One! And that One is Mashiach/Christ. Many of the battles Satan sends against our lives, as believers is to shut us up, so that we don't tell it and utter forth that anointed word which God has given us! In what way is the Spirit quenched in Christian circles today?


"Let no one among you be arbitrating (however wishful) in respect of a religious observance of the messengers: Upon what things he has seen, taking his stand, in vain puffed up by his carnal mind, and not holding the head from which all the body through means of it's joints and unifying bands receiving supply, and connecting itself together grows with the growth of God."

Genesis 3 tells us that Satan is more subtil than any beast of the field. As God opens our spiritual eyes with a Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Yeshua haMashiach/Jesus Christ, we'll see the feet of iron and clay to a greater degree. You'll see even the subtle attempts to cleave toGod's kingdom with flatteries, and to supplant Christianity. In the New Testament the Apostle Paul teaches us something about the spiritual realm we'd do well to pay attention to:

"Put on the complete armour of God, with a view to having power to stand against the stradegies of the adversary. For we wrestle not flesh and blood but against:

For this cause, take up the full armour of God, in order that you might receive power to withstand in the evil day. And all things having accomplished, to stand! Stand therefore -- The Lord in speaking by revelation, brought forth the fact that in world structures there are streams and cross currents of pollenization, or fertilization which nourish and revitalize social structures, or "The kingdoms of this world." From Revelation 11:15, we learn that our God views "the kingdoms of the world," as one kingdom, even as the kingdom of God is one. He notes however that the kingdom of this world has various components, saying in Daniel, that the end time kingdom has feet of iron and clay.

In describing a vision to King Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel interprets it saying:

And whereas you saw the feet and the toes,part of them of potters clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, the hardness of iron combined with miry clay. Part of it strong, and part brittle. Where you saw the iron combined with miry clay,they shall be combined with the seed of men, but shall not cleave firmly to one another, even as iron is not to be combined with clay. And in the days of those kings shall God set up a kingdom which, to the ages shall not be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to another people. It shall break in pieces and make an end of all these kingdoms, but itself shall stand to the ages. Forasmuch as you saw that out of the rock a store tore itself away, but not with hands, and broke in pieces the clay, the iron, the bronze, the silver and the gold, the Mighty God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter. (Daniel 2:40-44)

What's to be gained by seeing the "kingdoms of this world" as one structure? For one thing, as we Christians focus our attention to a greater degree, upon the Revelation 11:15 biblical view of worldly oneness or prophetic unity of purpose, we will see even the smallest component of a part of a compromised, demonicly inspired thing harmless, but part of a far more devious plan, and the tendency to compromise Christian beliefs as far more diobolical.

It's the seed sowing principle, of which the enemy who comes to steal away the seed of God's Word from our hearts in the Parable of the Sower, is not ignorant. He knows if he can get his foot in the door, he's taken a beachhead. Constantine's Council of Nicea was a beachhead. He used the undiscerning church leaders of his day to solidify the iron and clay feet, of the false image. We must not despise the day of small beginnings. Throw off the cloak of insignificance Satan could throw as a net over your soul. Our sowing must be deliberate, and the seed that good seed as God intended it to be sown, so that the harvest will be abundant and fruitful, and divinely powerful to the pulling down of strongholds.
