"Advancing the Kingdom of God"
Background story of how this came about.
Recently, the Holy Spirit laid on my heart that my duty here on earth is to advance the Kingdom of God.
I did not mention this to anyone, just my own conviction I had with the Holy Spirit.
Few weeks later Joshua, my beloved, one morning messaged me and said that the Holy Spirit laid on his heart that his own duty was to advance the kingdom of God, But not alone with me.
This was very surprising as I did not tell him anything but we both got the same word. From then on the concept of this advancing the kingdom of God began.
Now what does Advance mean?
Advance means to move forwards in a purposeful way. To push forward, make or cause to make progression.
What is the Kingdom Of God?
The kingdom of God is God's sovereign reign on earth and heaven. Throughout the entire Bible, this was the central message! John the Baptist preached the Kingdom of God, Jesus preached it, and the apostles preached it. The coming Kingdom of God is the message that God wants to convey to every person on earth.
The crucial question is, will you be a part of it?
How do we/ hope to advance the kingdom of God?
By, allowing God to use us as vessels here on earth.
We focus on 3 main steps, when advancing the Kingdom of God.
By stepping out,
By destroying Satan's work
By restoring God's creation
This here is what our mission is to do on earth. Although, myself and Josh personally heard this from God. This here should be everyone's focus and is everyones duty on earth, to advance his kingdom. A practical way this can be done which has helped us both is a self evaluation by advancing the Kingdom of God rules. Everything you do on earth does it advance the kingdom of God or retract from what the bible and what the lord is asking us to do. Being obedient to the lord, having a desire to please him. Ask yourself am i honouring the father or is what i am doing dishonouring, Is it showing that you are a representation of Christ? These are the few questions; we had to ask ourselves, and are daily asking ourselves when faced with various decisions. It is important to remember, that this is not possible on our own, and it is only through the grace of God that we can advance his Kingdom. His perfect love makes it so easy to obedy him! I hope you enjoyed reading about our ministry of Advancing the Kingdom of God and now can understand the concept a bit more.
Many more to come from advancing the Kingdom of God
