Extraordinary Savior = Extraordinary Results

It would behoove the disciples of Christ to be aware that they have an extraordinary Savior. When Peter was in prison, there was no popular teaching making the rounds at conferences that you could call on a special squad of jail-breaking angels to get you out. Something happened that Peter had not even taught on! We are in an era of history when nothing less than the extraordinary of heaven is required in the earth.  (Eph.3:10, Msg) ”Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!”

Character For Order

SunCrop
The “THY” of “Thy Kingdom” redeems a person, redeems a thing to bring them back to their path to God’s original intent (Kathy G.). Creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God who will be manifest in the character of the “THY” of “Thy Kingdom” so that it can get back to its intended order. His character observed in His sons identifies them as His sons to people, to powers and to principalities. May we be so full of the character of this awesome “THY” that no demon ever need ask, “Jesus I know and Paul I know, but who are you?” (Acts 19:15; also Eph.3:10).

Redemptive Wisdom

MountainsunshineThe church is not the Kingdom of God but a model and stewarding entity within the Kingdom. The purpose of the church in the Kingdom of God: “[The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known…” (Eph.3:10, Amp). That wisdom is made known through redemptive acts of power (Lk.10:9;11:20;1Cor.2:4;4:20; 1Thess.1:5). That redemptive wisdom is the foundation and body of our thinking and mindsets when we have gotten it out of the Word of God and into our hearts and minds and decisions and actions. Theology formed from the poverty of human experience leaves minds severely limited and disoriented with no true compass. We must adjust our focus from matters and things that people say are impossible to focusing on Him Whose Kingdom, Whose rule and authority, comes in the moment and brings with it the power and resources of heaven. “Poverty” basically means “insufficiency” and the human experience is far too insufficient to form anything to stand on, let alone anything that will bring hope or any viable form of solution.

Victorious Mentality

Looking in the Bible and looking at the decisions and actions of its victorious characters, it is obvious that the Loavesfishbasketpossibility exists for us to have a Kingdom mentality and act victoriously out of that mentality regardless of the pressure of overwhelming circumstances and insurmountable opposition. When we pray “Thy Kingdom come” we are praying: Thy will come, Thy authority come, Thy power come, Thy rule come, Thy order come, Thy sovereign activity come, Thy heavenly culture come (cf.”Kingdom of heaven; as it is in heaven”; also Acts17:6). If we truly pray “Thy Kingdom come”  we will not be of the mentality that dismisses the extraordinary of God Who is able to “do the undoable, change the unchangeable and provide the impossible”. If we are of a Kingdom mentality when it comes time to break loaves and fishes, we will not be thinking, “Oh, swell, now I will simply have two pieces of fish and two pieces of bread.” Rather we will be set up for the extraordinary of God since we know that, in our lifetime, we have only seen a fraction of the many-layered, many-sided wisdom (Eph.3:10) of God that can feed 5,000 with a sack lunch (Jn.6:9).

Candidates To Participate

SeaSunEven before the resurrection, the sea water had its normal density and the body of Jesus had its proper density, yet Jesus walked on water (Matt.14:26). This LORD of the many-layered wisdom of God (Eph.3:10) is not bound by dimensions, nor by the poverty of human experience, nor by the laws of gravity or mass. Therefore, the advancing of His Kingdom and the sons of that Kingdom are candidates to participate in what their King has set up.
”Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” (Isa.9:7)
