The Gospel of the Kingdom

The central theme of the Old Testament was the coming Kingdom of God. This Kingdom was to be established by the Messiah who was the hope of all Israel. The law and the prophets pointed to this. John the Baptizer became the first to declare the gospel of the Kingdom of God that was being manifested in Jesus. “The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into […]

The Ever Widening Kingdom

We cannot build according to the divine pattern of God’s concept without a clear revelation and understanding of the kingdom, because the whole of God’s purpose is centered on His kingdom which He has kept and concealed in Christ Jesus before the foundation of the world. It is therefore fundamental to know the basic of God’s purpose. God’s will is for His kingdom (His Government, Rule, Reign and Dominion) to be established on earth as it is in heaven – […]

This is an inclusive concept of masculine and feminine – father, mother, sons and daughters. However, when you study the concept of “God’s spiritual family” in the New Testament you will discover that the emphasis […]

The Power of the Name

The greatness of Abraham was in His son, Isaac. He was the son through whom God intended to continue the fulfilment of His covenant with Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. True sons build upon the legacy of their father to carry the name to the next generation. When you become a part of a family, the name of that family is imparted on you and it defines your character and your DNA. As much as […]
