What You Need to Know aboutJesus' Kingdom

Jesus ministry was focused on Kingdom. He went everywhere teaching Kingdom. He taught His disciples to teach that the Kingdom was at hand and in us. He taught us to pray. "Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven." Jesus kept referencing the Kingdom in His parables. If Jesus was Kingdom focused, we should also be focused on the Kingdom.

The KingdomIt's in the Word

The Bible is full of the Kingdom of God. It is like a multi-faceted diamond. What we see, is determined by the facet we look through. If we look through the lens of legalism, we become like the Scribes and Pharisees. If we look through the lens of love, we begin to see the Heart of God, and the wisdom of His Kingdom. If we look through the lens of Kingdom, we see God's wisdom, and power on earth.

"So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."

Jesus Christ
Matthew 6:31-33 (NIV)

"Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the Kingdom; you are exalted as head over all."

Old Testament Author
1 Chronicles 29:11 (NIV)

"Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Jesus Christ
Matthew 19:13-14 (NIV)

"But seek [first] His Kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the Kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Jesus Christ
Luke 12: 31-34 (NIV)

"From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven has come near.” As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They ... were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him."

Jesus Christ
Matthew 4:17-20 (NIV)

"Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the Kingdom of God unless they are born again... no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."

Jesus Christ
John 3:3-8 (NIV)

"When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God has come near to you.’ ... Yet be sure of this: The Kingdom of God has come near.’ ... I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Jesus Christ
Luke 10:8-17 (NIV)

"Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my ekklesia, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

Jesus Christ
Matthew 16: 16-19

"This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."

Jesus Christ
Matthew 6: 9-10

 

 

Questions and Answers: The Empowered Kingdom

How do I join your training sessions each week?

The first step is to join our members' groups at https://www.facebook.com/groups/kingdomlive and https://mewe.com/join/theempoweredkingdom. Invitations to meetings will be shared with members in that group. Please join both platforms. In the event that one closes down, we will still be able to connect on the other.

Are you a denomination? Who are you affiliated with?

We are affiliated with Jesus Christ alone. He said, "My Kingdom is not of this world," (John 18:36).

If Jesus did not create denominations, (which are endlessly divided), or manmade institutions and affilliations, but prayed for His followers to be unified as one, then why would we not follow His example? Jesus Kingdom produced remarkable results when His disciples did things His way. His way worked, and it still does! It is what He commanded. Our mission is simply to follow His example.

Is the church and the Kingdom the same thing?

The word "church" is actually not in the original Greek or Hebrew. It was inserted in place of the word "ekklesia," which was the word Jesus used when He said to Peter, "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my ekklesia [which has been translated as "church"], and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." (Matthew 16:18).

The word "ekklesia" means a group of people who are called to assemble. It was used both of political assemblies, and as a reference to the gathering of Christ's followers in groups. So, when Jesus was refering to His "ekklesia," He was not refering to a building, or a meeting place, or a ritual, but to the people He was gathering to Himself. He then told these people (His disciples, or His "ekklesia"), "As you go, proclaim this message: 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.'" (Matthew 10:7). So, the people He called (His ekklesia or assembly), were told to preach the Kingdom at hand. This is not quite the same as our definitions of church today. It is easy to go to church and live out a passive form of Christianity where nothing of the Kingdom really manifests in our day-to-day life. Our churches cater to this. Jesus' Kingdom called every person to be personally engaged, and fully active in the building of His Kingdom. His ekklesia is passionate, highly motivated, and actively building Kingdom. By contrast, our churches have turned their attention away from Kingdom building to self-promotion, and the building of their own buildings, ministries, stage shows, and so on. None of this was commanded, instructed, or endorsed by Jesus in any way. There is a difference.

Follow His instructions, which are clear and generally easy to understand. These can be found in the Gospels. Pray to God for guidance. Ask for a pure and humble heart. Ask for wisdom to walk in His way. Listen to God and not to man. (Psalm 118:8). Be obedient to the Jesus, and His Word.

In Acts 2:37-39, when people asked Peter what they had to do to be saved, Peter's answer was, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Then in verse 47, we read; "And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus gives His disciples their marching orders with these words; "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

In John 14:15 Jesus said, "If you love me you will keep my commandments."

It is that simple. It does not have to be complicated. Be genuine. Be authentic. Listen to God and not to man. Read the Gospels, and obey Jesus. It is all there.

Absolutely. You are welcome to contact us via our website or social media, so that we can set up a time to chat.

Yes, absolutely. You can reach out to us via our website or social media, so that we can set up a time to chat.

Yes, we operate on the basis of mentoring people into their God-given ministry. You can reach out to us via our website or social media, so that we can set up a time to chat.

Not formally, because we already have Jesus mission in scripture and we simply need to follow Him. That being said, we are inviting churches back to the Kingdom Jesus established, His way.

Please do not send donations to the Empowered Kingdom. We do not solicit funds for teaching the Gospel. We will always share the message of the Gospel free. Nor do we ask for tithes and offerings. Our approach is to encourage members to support each other and worthy causes directly related to them and their community. This is important, because we are all called into ministry. Pray to the Lord and ask Him to guide you. When it comes to small groups, we encourage the members of each group to identify a cause or community need, and then contribute directly to that cause or need. Jesus said, "Let your giving be in secret," and "do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing." Your giving is between you and God, and we do not need to know what you have chosen to give. That is your business. That being said, giving is an important part of your spiritual development, for "God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7).

In order to maintain integrity between spiritual matters and practical realities, our position is that spiritual services should be free. We do not see Jesus fundraising or passing the collection plate around before He would do a miracle. On the other hand, there is practical reality. We need to eat, pay the rent, and so on. We recognize that causes also need practical and financial support in the real world. It is with this in mind that we create practical platforms and businesses as ministries to build Kingdom by supporting ministries and causes. Video4Causes is an example of a platform that we have created to help raise funds for causes. At the same time, Video4Cause.com is also used to support video producers who serve the causes by helping the causes to tell their stories in the best way possible. In this way, we double up on our ability to serve others.

You may participate casually, or you can commit to becoming a Kingdom builder with us. If you are ready to become a Kingdom builder with us, you may become a member of our Kingdom family (ekklesia). Since we do not pressure members to give tithes and offerings to the Empowered Kingdom ministry, as others do. However, we do ask members to support one or more causes on Video4Causes.com. This request is useful for "testing the spirits," to see if people are genuine or not. Donations received on Video4Causes are passed on to the causes as stated on the Video4Causes website. The mission of Video4 Causes is to support orphans, widows, people in crisis, ministries, and much more. In other words, we are asking that you give to the causes support by our ministry, rather than to us. In this way, our members tithes and offerings have the greatest chance of being used to the full, without having to be whittled down to a fraction of their original worth by supporting large overheads, mortgages, salaries and the like.

So, to become a member...

  • Choose a cause to support at Video4Causes.com.
  • Join our member's groups on Facebook and MeWe.
  • Attend our training and courses.
  • Let us know that you want to be a participating member, and also let us know what Kingdom ministry you feel you are called to so that we can see what we can do to support your Kingdom purpose and calling.
  • Please know that a basic premise of Kingdom is that everyone is called into ministry. In other words come to find your calling and to be active. There are endless opportunities for group leaders, life coaches, pastors, Kingdom business entrepreneurs, teachers, and much more. Every member is expected to find their calling and walk in it.

    First become a member as described in the previous question and answer. Then, when you have settled in and introduced yourself to the group, message Admin to set up an online meeting to discuss where the Lord is leading you.

    Probably. Unlike churches that are typically "Sunday-only" focused, the Kingdom is all encompassing. This means that its principles apply to everything from teaching, to coaching, to parenting, to personal development, to business, to finance, to entrepreneurship, to education, and much more. First become a member as described in the previous question and answer. Then, when you have settled in and introduced yourself to the group, message Admin to set up an online meeting to discuss where the Lord is leading you.

    Yes. It is extremely important to set up a ministry the right way, especially if you want to dedicate it to God, and use its reources most efficiently. Please contact Admin for more information. Members will receive training about this subject and many other important matters too.

    The Empowered Kingdom is a Private Ministerial Association. This means that when you join our group, you automatically become a member of the Empowered Kingdom's Private Membership Association. A Private Membership Association (PMA) is formed for the purpose of conducting private business and private matters outside of the public domain, in the private domain. As such, a PMA has its own rules and regulations that are independent and seperate from that of State and public domain. One of the points of distinction is that disputes are settled internally in a PMA rather than in courts of law, which are part of the public domain. This is in keeping with 1 Corinthians 6:1-2 that states, "If any of you has a grievance against another, how dare he go to law before the unrighteous instead of before the saints! Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?"

    We recommend learning more about Private Membership Associations at https://mewe.com/group/5c6c73f2aef4005aa665a9af. If our terms and conditions are not acceptable to you in full, you do not have permission to continue.

    We are sorry to hear that life has been hard for you. The Kingdom embraces all people, just like Jesus did. There is a Kingdom place for you where you can be healed and whole again. So, all are welcome.

    However, it is important to keep in mind that Jesus also made it clear to "Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you," - (John 5:14).

    We will welcome you, and love you, and we won't condemn you. However, we will lead you to the Lord and encourage you to have a genuine, and truthful relationship with Him, so that He can change your heart and your mind, and then heal your soul and your circumstances, in the way that He knows is best for you. Our job is to bring you to the Lord. His job is to lead you in the way that only He can do. Your job is to be open, available, and truthful in front of Him and His word. The Holy Spirit will do the rest.

    You can submit prayer requests to the "Pray for Me" website at https://www.prayformesite.com.

    Members can connect with each other in our private member's groups on MeWe and Facebook at at https://mewe.com/join/theempoweredkingdom.

    Alternatively, you can submit a message via our support / chat function. Look for the orange bubble icon on the bottom left of our page.

    "You offended us! We challenge you to a debate!"

    Sorry. Not interested. However, sincere discussion in which we are mutually open to being helped, and to help each other come closer to the Lord, are welcome.
