Matt 9:35  Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom.  (NKJV)

In times past we’ve preached the, ‘ The Gospel of Salvation ‘. This was good as it applied the Gospel to the individual, but it became restrictive by producing a vision that revolved around the individual thus developing inward looking Christians. It also led to an extreme teaching on holiness that preached separation causing the Church to withdraw from the world and develop a bunker mentality of them and us.

Today God is enlarging the Gospel from one of Salvation to one of the Kingdom. ‘The Gospel of the Kingdom‘ embraces not only individuals but also the nations; And  develops Christians who are outward looking. Such people realise they have to take the Kingdom rule and reign of God into society and change the culture where God has placed them. They are no longer defensive but offensive. They are no longer living just a Church life but also a Kingdom life.

So what is a Kingdom life. This is what we will be exploring in future blogs.

Meditation point: “Father, change my vision from the Gospel of Salvation to the Gospel of the Kingdom”.

Isa 2:2  It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be [firmly] established as the highest of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow to it.   (AMP)

‘ The 7 Mountain Mandate’ (7MM) is a revelation that is sweeping the Church world and is a teaching I will be unpacking in proceeding blogs. It is a model for the Church to reclaim the 7 key areas (mountains) of culture and they are: 1) Business  2) Government  3) Family  4) Religion  5) Media  6) Education  7) Entertainment.

The 7MM is also a Kingdom model; God’s plan is for His Kingdom to rule on earth as it does in heaven and only the Church can release the Kingdom. The Church is the agent for the release of the Kingdom. In Mt 16:13-19 Jesus responds to Peter’s revelation that He is the Christ by saying that He will build His Church; He then gives to Peter and the disciples the keys to the Kingdom of God. Here we have Jesus tying together the Church with the Kingdom.

The Church and the Kingdom are 2 sides of the same coin and we need both to bring a balance. For to long we have developed a Church vision at the expense of a Kingdom vision. What’s the difference between them:

A Church vision is inward looking – A Kingdom vision is outward looking.

A Church vision is concerned with what God is doing among His people – A Kingdom vision is concerned with what God is doing in the world.

A Church vision expects the world to come to the Church – A Kingdom vision takes the Church to the world.

We need both to bring balance and fulfill God’s plan for the end of the ages.

Meditation point: Is it the wellspring of my heart to take the Kingdom to the world around me?
