CHAPTER 9 – The CONTENTS of JESUS’ ETERNAL KINGDOM.

Lets look at some interesting facts about the contents of the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God. As I have discussed, Jesus Christ is the very embodiment{/best possible visible expression} of His eternal KINGDOM. So whatever His attributes {things that make Him recognizable}, they are also the SAME attributes of His spiritual supernatural Kingdom. The first attributes that must be known about Jesus Christ is that He is God the Son the Second Person of the GODHEAD/TRINITY.
John 1:1-2 IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit}, and the Word was God Himself. [Isa 9:6.] 2 He {God the Son} was present originally with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit – TRINITY}. AMP
Hebrews 9:14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! NIV
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him {Jesus Christ}, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–and reach full spiritual stature]. And He {Jesus Christ} is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP
Matthew 28:19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit {GODHEAD/Trinity}, AMP

Jesus Christ makes the statement that His Kingdom is NOT of this world but that His Kingdom is within His spiritually adopted children and encompasses His spiritual Bride Church who and which are located around the world! How does that make any sense? It only makes Godly sense IF His spiritually adopted children of His spiritual supernatural Bride Church do NOT worship and serve the physical secular “kingdom(s) of the world” and its god – Satan – but instead, we worship and serve God in His spiritual supernatural Kingdom at the present time HERE ON EARTH in Christ’s Bride Church.
Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you]. AMP
Matt 6:9-10, 13 Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven {NOW}.
13And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory {NOW and} forever. Amen. AMP

If Christ’s Kingdom is within us, we also must understand that It contains and proclaims the “good news” of His eternal GOSPEL MESSAGE which “saved” us, and which we are to proclaim to the whole world.
Mark 1:14-15 Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God, 15And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel) of the Kingdom of God. AMP
Mark 16:15 And He said to them {us disciples}, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race]. AMP

It also is an interesting historical fact that while Jesus physically lived on the earth {and His Kingdom was WITH Him} there were NO wars. His Kingdom contains eternal PEACE! “Where Jesus is, there is PEACE! Where Christ is NOT, there can be no PEACE! It is a remarkable fact that during the 33 years that Jesus Christ was on the earth, there is NO record of wars of any kind. History does not record any single battle having been fought during the time when Jesus was on earth. When He was here, there was PEACE!”

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] AMP
John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] AMP
Acts 10:36 You know the contents of the message which He sent to Israel, announcing the good news (Gospel) of peace by Jesus Christ, Who is Lord of all—AMP

We also know that nothing can separate us from the eternal LOVE of God that is in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 John 4:16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him. AMP
Romans 8:37-39 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. AMP

Only the true loving God can provide for us His eternal GRACE. I do not believe that as humans we can fully understand His GRACE and the ramifications of it. GRACE is an “eternal concept” meaning that it has always been part of His eternal plan. I believe Jesus Christ offered GRACE to the angels when they sinned just as He brought GRACE to Adam and Eve when they sinned.
John 1:16-17 For out of His {Jesus Christ’s} fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift. 17For while the Law was given through Moses, grace (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ {from before time began}. [Ex 20:1.] AMP
Revelation 19:10 Then I {John} fell at his {the angel’s} feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” NASU {I believe in the SAME “testimony of Jesus” as does this angel that is worshiping and serving God. Thus, I believe the angel and I are spiritual brothers in Christ!}

© The eternal Shed Blood or our Savior Jesus Christ is part of the eternal Gospel Message that is contained in God’s Kingdom.

What else is contained in the Kingdom of God? The eternal SHED BLOOD of our Savior Jesus Christ is part of the eternal Gospel Message that is contained in God’s Kingdom. I do NOT at this time know what else is an eternal part of the Kingdom of God, but as He reveals these things, I know that we will be so amazed that all we can do is fall on our faces and weep telling Him how sorry we are for being such “hard headed” unloving and uncaring people for NOT seeking Him more than we do!
Isaiah 1:18 “Come, let’s talk this over!” says the Lord; “no matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you white as wool {thoroughly made clean by Christ’s shed blood}! TLB
Revelation 7:14 I replied, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they who have come out of the great tribulation (persecution), and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. [Gen 49:11; Dan 12:1.] AMP
Revelation 13:8 And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain [in sacrifice] from the foundation of the world. AMP
Romans 5:9 Therefore, since we are now justified (acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God) by Christ’s blood, how much more [certain is it that] we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God. AMP

I am beginning to spiritually see a larger portion of the spiritual “picture” of what God has done in our redemption process. Take all of the above contents of the Kingdom of God – the eternal Gospel Message, the Peace of Christ, the Love of God, the Grace of God, and Christ’s Shed Blood – and now include our new spiritual “STANDARD”/spiritual profile – CHAPTER 3, our new spiritual Divine Nature of the Almighty – CHAPTER 4, our spiritual “ONENESS” with God – CHAPTER 5, and God’s spiritual GIFTING of us for our ministry with Him – CHAPTER 6, and what kind of picture are you spiritually seeing. It is surely a picture of a spiritual supernatural Kingdom that has ALL of the ingredients for us as spiritually adopted children of Christ to partake of and to have daily VICTORY in our faith in Jesus Christ. The following text shares with us the eternal completeness of this VICTORY.
1 Corinthians 15:52-58 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed). 53For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death). 54And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory. [Isa 25:8.]
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? [Hos 13:14.] 56 Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power [upon the soul] through [the abuse of] the Law. 57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose]. AMP

I believe the Godhead/Trinity {God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit} actually lives within EACH truly “Born Again” Saint and is authentically represented by God the Holy Spirit. This Kingdom of God is here on earth and manifests itself individually within each truly “Born Again” Saint and corporately worldwide within Christ’s Bride Church.
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him {Jesus Christ}, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP
Matthew 18:20 {Jesus said} For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them. [Ex 3:14.] AMP
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. AMP
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church {around the world}] are God’s temple (His sanctuary), and that God’s Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, collectively as a church and also individually]? AMP
