RECEIVING A KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN.
Hebrews Chapter 12: 28
Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom…
We entered 2021 with the theme “receiving the kingdom that cannot be shaken in the midst of a rapidly degenerating global social culture.” This theme is a ten-year prophetic preparatory initiative that should equip, realign and position the ecclesia back to its rightful path and the place of relevant functionality as the true ambassador of heaven on earth.
One of the first things that needs to be restored is our vision of the kingdom or our forgotten identity, which defines our competence and functional ability as the Church of the Lord.
If there is no crystal-clear vision of one’s biblical spiritual identity, it becomes easy to be deceived, lured, and derailed from a set divine objective of the kingdom. There is no doubt that the last couple of decades has shown that the Church has become deceived, confused, and misguided by the invasion of false prophetic voices and wolves in sheep clothing
2 Corinthians 11:3-4
I am afraid, however, that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may be led astray from your simple and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes and proclaims a Jesus other than the One we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the One you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it way too easily.…
The almost loss of the Church’s prophetic visionary mandate has made her vulnerable to all forms of idealism, foreign culture, and demonic doctrines and practices. The vision of the Church is not derived and will never be accepted from some denominational traditional ideals, or the current humanistic progressive ideology of identity, race, gender, or culture, but rather from the infusion of a sound, biblical revelatory life of Christ.
When we disobey our heavenly calling and vision, we will lose the sense of direction and ability to precisely judge times and seasons as the Lord will require. For two years, the Spirit of the Lord has continued to impress our hearts to return to our core spiritual identity as kingdom citizens. This begins from the place where our lost vision is restored, as we see with Saul, who became Paul in Damascus.
According to chapter 9 of the Book of Acts, a true and divine vision is directly linked to a precise, restored, functional identity. To effectively manifest our divine nature as Sons of God, we must prioritize the art of walking in the ascended, revelatory life of Christ.
Pressing to find and understand all the realities of the kingdom-life within us shifts us to the priority of who we are and what we represent in the order of divine life. In my opinion, this is the first basis and framework to develop the precise knowledge of the character of what I like to call kingdom culture.
On this ground of truth, on which we have built since 2020 during the global reset, or what I rather prefer to call “the Great Sabbath of the Lord,” we entered and continued to move into the realities of the kingdom. I say reality because the kingdom has different spheres, spaces and dynamics that cannot be understood or exhausted in this present stage of truth in which we are located.
As Portalsgate community globally, all that we are and are currently representing is the expression of Christ’s ascending life, and that is what qualifies us into the development process in the kingdom. We are not trying to enter the kingdom, we are already in the kingdom, and the kingdom culture is already being created within us. Indeed, we may not have a full ascended revelation of the operating order of our kingdom citizenship now. However, we are daily being transformed into the heavenly nature of the second man, the last Adam, who is our access door and guide into the kingdom lifestyle.
Yes, we do not have a complete view of active life within the order of the kingdom philosophy. Nevertheless, we are being reformed and transformed every day in understanding the way of the Spirit, so that we gradually see the precise and effective function of this culture of the ascended kingdom.
As children born into a home with the full right to inheritance, but who are not given such privilege because of their immaturity, we also symbolically walk in this progressive [knowledge] awareness of our right position but are daily to continue to yield to the process of progressive development of our spirit man until we get unto that full light of the Sun [Son] in Christ.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
The age in which we have been introduced requires mature individuals who know how to discern and function in the ascending authority of Christ. Yes, we must continue to hear the voice and direction of the Spirit while we wait in the place of development until the day of mature representation.
Shifting from the enticing fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is a conscious decision everyone must make in this season, especially if we truly desire to enter the scope of the promise of our kingdom heritage. No one stumble into the realities of the divine life of Christ without deliberately rejecting the enticing craving of the old man still warring from within us.
The fallen Adamic nature is the Church’s number one obstacle to living a successful spiritual lifestyle. However, those who choose to continue to feed their spirit by eating from the fruit of the tree of life which is the character nature of the new man in Christ will continue to ascend towards the mountain of representation as the nation’s streams up to her.
There is now doubt that we are now being fed from the fruit of the tree of life and our immortal nature is gaining ascendancy in the kingdom. The more we eat this fruit, the more every sector of our inner life is awakened to the divine grace and wisdom that makes us spiritually prepared for the Lord.
The more we pray and give time to hear the voice of the Spirit, so that the kingdom of God becomes manifest in us, the greater the result and impact we make in the art of spiritual perspective and breakthrough. The more our spirit and soul’s faculties surrender to the life and desire of the Spirit, the more our kingdom culture and authority develop in faith, hope and love, and the more we gain spiritual ascendancy over the works of the flesh.
The further we use our new nature as citizens of the regents of heaven, the more we regain strength and authority to conquer and overcome the lies and deception of the old man and Satan. As we daily die to the old Adamic nature, the further the new man in Christ gains ascendancy.
The mere use of the term “kingdom” in our expression of spiritual lingual is no longer the seal of our accuracy or acceptance of preaching and teaching on the subject of the kingdom. Rather, our unity in the Spirit of Christ and our submission in total obedience to the lifestyle of biblical truth precede us and are accepted as the biding value of our testimony as members of the commonwealth of heaven.
We believe that the deeper the nature and revelatory reality of what the kingdom is to us, the deeper the Spirit of God continues to speak and share the experience of the kingdom life to us, and the higher we will attain in the diverse realities of the kingdom of God. Without doubt, we have passed the phase of mere language to the experience and expression of the values of the kingdom, which began in the place of a well-established doctrinal life of the ascended revelation of Christ and his bride.
Yes, we are brides and sons in Christ, and we know that one of these natures precedes the other. The order of the bride must go before the manifestation of the sonship. Unfortunately, many have run with the desire of the Sonship message, without first being [married] united to Christ. Until we become Christ’s bride, we cannot truly be born in the Spirit of Sons, and we cannot fully understand the nature and function of the ministry of Sons in the Kingdom.
There is still a lot to uncover in matters of the Kingdom in this end of days. Nevertheless, one thing is clear: we are constantly and gradually developing in our kingdom identity and visionary spirit of the third-day ecclesia, and this is an excellent news for all of us as we consolidate on the path to receiving a kingdom culture that cannot be shaken. So, friends, let’s continue with this knowledge and experience of kingdom philosophy in the coming year of 2022.
