The Kingdom Believer

By Michael Plemmons
CBN Staff Writer We live in a world that is beset by constant change.  Daily the day’s headlines give mute testimony to this fact.  Everyone in our world today in every nation can sense that we are experiencing something quite unlike anything we have seen before. In a world seemingly spinning more and more out of control millions all over the world are searching for answers.

The answers we all seek in this hour can only be found in one place and from one heart. It is a heart that has too long been misunderstood. It is a heart that flows in the greatest love and compassion that has ever existed.

Father God is about to reveal himself in a new and revolutionary way. The kingdom of God and planet earth are on a collision course. The church of Jesus Christ is about to be freed from the chains of tradition and religion.

All over the world hungry hearts are seeking the face of God. These devoted followers of Jesus Christ are united on a holy quest to seek the presence of God. I believe we have entered a new day and that Father God is preparing the hearts of his church for the greatest outpouring of his Spirit ever seen.  The kingdom of God is about to be established and with it what I shall call the kingdom believer.

The kingdom believer longs to experience the anointing and glory of the Kingdom of their heavenly Father. Those who have walked in, tasted, and seen with the eyes of their hearts His kingdom, have by experiencing it forever, purged from them any desire for a kingdom of their own. As we experience the wonders of the age to come, our desires for the world and its seductive inducements are forever lost in the expanding inner revelation of the realm of heaven.

Those whose hearts hunger for a new revelation of the heart of God shall experience the glory of union with God. The Triune God of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, exist in perfect unity, as they are both three and one. The heart, which hungers for union with God, shall walk in a new revelation of the glory of God. Those who receive this revelation shall never be satisfied with the power of God simply resting on them. Having been given a new awareness of God they will rather hunger that they will be a vessel through whom Father shall flow that others may be transformed by the heart of Father God that this new awareness of him brings.

Never again shall the church of Jesus Christ be satisfied with just an anointing without an inner revelation of the heart of God. The world is in desperate need in this day and hour for a news source of hope. All around us the seeds of tribulation have been sown. Mankind, if the word of God be true, is facing its most desperate hour. Saints of God, the work that Father is doing in the hearts of believers all over the world is preparing the church for the dark days ahead.

We have the answers the world is seeking. The kingdom believer shall be a force of righteous conviction in the world. They shall walk in a new understanding of the plans of their God in this day.  This new understanding shall bring the most powerful force of compassion and love ever seen into the world of men. If the truth be known, one age is coming to an end in fiery judgment and a new one is being established in its place. Let us not give in to the fear and terror of these times but rather rest secure in the knowledge that a new kingdom is coming.

So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:7, NLT)
