The Kingdom Principles -Part 2
Once again, let me reiterate that the principles are essentials, helping us to think and act as citizens of God’s Kingdom. These principles are standards of the Kingdom of God and are required to maintain our citizenship. The kingdom principles are neither excusable nor easy to practice, but 'do-able'. Every kingdom has its own unique principles, which might be identical but different. Thus, its important we look carefully at the applicable principles of the Kingdom of our God to put into practice.
The Six major principles of the Kingdom of God
2. The second principle of the Kingdom is Faith.
We receive all that we have by faith. Faith help us to please God.
The Great King is pleased in us when we trust Him. Faith is like a WiFi - it is invisible but connect you to God to collect His blessings. Faith is so essential to communicate with and receive from God; our King. Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the [a]substance of things hoped for, the [b]evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
4. The fourth Kingdom principle is Judging.
Any judgment from a self righteous person is condescending and destroying (destructive). However, when you correct a friend according to the scripture and most importantly in love, that is called righteous judgment.
Romans 14:13 make up your mind not to be the cause of fall for others. Amen
5. The fifth Kingdom principle is Prayer.
Prayer is a means of communication in the spirit. The effectual prayer (communication) enables you to stay connected to the King in His Kingdom. Through prayer and studying the Word of God in the Bible, we understand the will of God and receive from our good King. See 1John 5:14 below.
Obviously, no meaningful relationship can survive without effective communication. It takes at least 2 personality to communicate as one does the speaking while the other listen. Likewise in the Kingdom of God, you need to communicate with the King to stay connected. More so, prayer boost our confidence in God. And lastly, Prayer humbles us before the King. Read 2 Chronicles 7:14
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1John 5:14
6. Finally, the last of the six major principles of the Kingdom of God is Giving.
An open hand receives back. See Luke 6:38 NLT below. Giving is universal. Whatever you give yourself to - maybe God, worldly desires, work, drugs, studies or money etc will definitely give back to you.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.[a]” Luke 6:38 NLT
In conclusion, these highlighted principles of the Kingdom are essential for every believer to remain as a good citizen of the Kingdom of God. In return, we receive the peace, the blessings and partake in the glory of His Kingdom. Psalms 72:7
Our prayer is that may we understand and remain in Him at all times. Amen.
