Show Notes:

We are living in the time when God is bringing forth His kingdom onto this Earth. Simultaneously, the ruler of this world is seeking to establish his kingdom of darkness on the Earth and to install his sons on the throne to reign over all mankind. The world we live in is currently under the influence and rulership of the devil.

 

Adam and Eve, who were created to become sons of God and rule over the Earth in obedience to God from a heart of love, instead chose the devil as their father and handed over to him the rulership over the Earth, which God had given to them.

 

However, God has a victorious plan. In that plan, Christ opens the door of eternal life through His resurrection. Then the sons of God, which are coming forth, will be used to bring the Kingdom of God to this world. This is our ministry.

Takeaways:

 

  1. We must absolutely get involved with world events—with education, politics, governmental policies, etc. We must speak up as ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. In this age we cannot afford to be silent, because we have seen the destruction of the Holocaust that came into the world because of a silent majority.

 

  1. We must begin our engagement by casting out the ruler of this world and not letting him have any influence over our lives.

 

  1. We must engage by bringing this Earth in conformity to the way it is now in heaven by using the keys to the Kingdom that we have been given by Yeshua to bind and loose on this Earth.

 

  1. We must always remember that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual powers. We must bind the ruler of this world in order to plunder his house and stop his plan for the destruction of mankind and the world as we know it. This is our destiny.
