Say what GOD says - HIS Words.
Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Tonight I heard a pastor say these words, "The gospel of the kingdom brings heaven to earth. Jesus came to set up the government of GOD in our daily lives on earth."
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in the synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom...
Now is the time to think GOD'S Words, to say GOD's Words, and to DO GOD'S Words. Now is the time to be keenly aware of what we allow in our ear gates and in our spirits. Satan has agents who he aims to contaminate and pollute our spirits. There are agents who speak doom, gloom, and discouragement. That is not our agenda.
It is our Father's good pleasure to give us the kingdom - Luke 12:32. I heard a pastor tonight use the word "kingdomized." Amen - Hallelujah! Also, he mentioned something to the effect that it is king dom with the "dom" meaning dominion.
Here I mention just some of the things that our Lord provides us as kingdom dwellers in this life. Matthew 6:10 says, "...Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." It is up to us to have pure hearts so that we can receive all that our Lord has for us who do according to His will as contained in His Holy Bible and as delivered to us by His Spirit.
2 Chronicles 13:18
...and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the Lord God of their fathers.
I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
...and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
2 Chronicles 16:8
Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the Lord, he delivered them into thine hand.
The Word of GOD states in Isaiah 57:21, "There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." But Oh Hallelujah! If they choose to be kingdom of GOD dwellers, there is an abundance of peace.
But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river,...
And joy figures prominently in the lives of kingdom dwellers. By the way, kingdom dwellers are not waders. Kingdom dwellers swim in deep waters guided by the Holy Ghost! Hope is the anchor of our souls. Hebrews 6:19 says, "Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast,..."
...they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
..enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
And thou shalt have joy and gladness;...
...I bring you good tidings of great joy, ...
Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for behold, your reward is great...
...and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
The Acts 20:24
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
