As with everything in life, in order for anything to be successful, the right foundations have to be laid. The same is true about our Christian lives, in order for us to live victorious lives, our lives most be build on the right foundations.
As believes we understand that our sins have been washed after by the sacrifice of Jesus, but that is only the beginning. Now we are born again we have been repositioned or we have immigrated into the Kingdom of God.
It is not when we die that we enter into the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God is right here:
This is the message Jesus sent his disciples to go and preach:
Luk 10:1 The Mission of the Seventy
After this, the Lord appointed 70 other disciples [ and was about to send them ahead of him in pairs to every town and place that he intended to go.
Luk 10:2 So he instructed them, “The harvest is vast, but the workers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers out into his harvest.
Luk 10:3 Get going! See, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
Luk 10:4 Don’t carry a wallet, a traveling bag, or sandals, and don’t greet anyone on the way.
Luk 10:5 “Whatever house you go into, first say, ‘May there be peace in this house.’
Luk 10:6 If a peaceful person lives there, your greeting of peace will remain with him. But if that’s not the case, your greeting will come back to you.
Luk 10:7 Stay with the same family, eating and drinking whatever they provide, because the worker deserves his pay. Don’t move from house to house.
Luk 10:8 “Whenever you go into a town and the people welcome you, eat whatever they serve you,
Luk 10:9 heal the sick that are there, and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you!’
Luk 9:27 I tell you with certainty, some people who are standing here will not experience death until they see the kingdom of God.”
Jesus’s death and resurrection was the doorway into the Kingdom, this is why all throughout his ministry, he preached the Kingdom of God and he gave examples, of how a Kingdom citizen should act compared to the people of this worlds kingdom.
He laid the foundations so that we should understand that HE is the king of that kingdom and this kingdom has a different authority to this currently kingdom.
He also described how the two kingdoms could exist at the same time:
The Coming of the Kingdom
(Matthew 24:23-28, 36-41)
Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come. He answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming with a visible display.
Luk_17:21 People won’t be saying, ‘Look! Here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ because now the kingdom of God is among you.”
The Law and the Prophets all directed people to the King, which is Jesus, however when King came, he directed everyone to the kingdom, which is his domain:
Luk_16:14 The Law and the Kingdom of God
Now the Pharisees, who love money, had been listening to all this and began to ridicule Jesus.
Luk_16:16 “The Law and the Prophets remained until John. Since then, the good news about the kingdom of God has been proclaimed, and everyone entering it is under attack.
This is why as believers if we do not understand the keys to success according to the kingdom, we may be saved and entered into the kingdom, but we will never be able to take advantage of our citizenship and the benefits attached to it.
Why do you think Jesus said these words?
Luk 12:29 “So stop concerning yourselves about what you will eat or what you will drink, and stop being distressed,
Luk 12:30 because it is the unbelievers who are concerned about all these things. Surely your Father knows that you need them!
Luk 12:31 Instead, be concerned about his kingdom, and these things will be provided for you as well.
Luk 12:32 Stop being afraid, little flock, because your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.
When we understand our citizenship and the laws associated to the kingdom, this is the thing that is going cause us to live a victorious life.
This is the foundational knowledge that EVERY believer should have because this is what Jesus taught as he was preparing to open the door to the kingdom.
The problem today is many churches preach about the King but not about the Kingdom, when people are witnessing to people, that are witnessing about the King but about the kingdom and they are wonder why the majority of the people are not listening to their message.
How, when John the Baptist, the forerunner to Jesus preached about the kingdom and the need to repent in order to enter in, people were rushing to the kingdom?
So let us be true citizens and kingdom believers and lets see just how many people rush in because of that.
Parallel Business Principles
To many people are afraid to tell people the truth about why they need to develop multiple streams of income in order to ensure a stable financial future moving forward. This is why the majority of people in Reliv lead with the product. They feel intimated to talk about the business.
However if they begin to understand that the message is far more important than their fear, overtime they would become more effective in how they communicate the message about the business and they would begin to sponsor more people into the business.
It is all about how the message is communicated and your response to the prospects reaction to it. If you are able to emotionally detach yourself from the outcome, then if someone is negative, you will be able to brush the dust of your feet and move on to the next prospect with NO baggage from the previous conversation.
That is the foundation to a strong business with Reliv.
