The Kingdom of God is Action

The Kingdom of God is not just something we put on the list of “Things I Believe In,” but it is action–action in us and through us. The government of God (The Kingdom) is exercised through sons/daughters.  It is somewhat like when James, in his epistle, PrayingForPeoplesaid, “There are people going around talking about what faith they have. I will show you my faith by my works.” (Js.2:18) There were evidently people just wanting to impress others by merely talking about their belief concerning faith. Reading about faith in the Bible like the way James spoke of it and observing faith leads me to the conclusion that it might best be described as a verb (action) rather than a noun (person, place or thing).  Just so, the Kingdom of God is best described as a verb (action) rather than as a noun. The Kingdom of God is the King acting through His authorized agents who release His governmental power in their sphere of authority.

Ever Increasing

While we cannot fathom how many voices have come before God praying, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as in heaven,” neither can we doubt the kingdomofheavenfaithfulness of our Father to answer that prayer.  The continual incoming and continually increasing government of God is a force in the earth that cannot be measured or predicted or controlled by the plans of men.  Men cannot pre-guess the effects and changes the government of God brings to any day or decade, and neither can mankind dismiss or ignore Kingdom effects.  There are definite patterns of evil in the earth that are recorded in history, and this often causes people to believe that history repeating itself is an unchangeable absolute, but that is not the case.  That thinking can lead to hopelessness and hinder our participation in bringing change if we allow it, but the truth is that cycles and patterns are not all-powerful or unbeatable dictators of the future.
