"For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens, who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who has established it ...
'I am the LORD, and there is no other.'"
This lesson is Part 2: Words and The End Days Church.
We will also study about the two Kingdoms that are in operation on earth.
The instant you were born from above, you were delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:13
Most likely, most of us have grown up and been trained in the Kingdom of Darkness and its ways. That is why we go to the Bible to re-program our old ways of living to a higher and better way of life. “Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” is not a suggestion but an absolute necessity if we are to do the will of God.
See Romans 12:1-2
“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth, as it is done in Heaven.” Matthew 6:10
- Words are carriers of thoughts, either for good or for evil.
- Words carry authority in the earth.
- Satan wants your words.
Watch out for the “pressure” to say the wrong thing. He is laying a snare which gives him license to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus came to give us the abundant life through Him. Since death and life are in the power of the tongue, choose words of life “that you and your descendants may live.” Read Deuteronomy 30:11-20.
“If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth.” (Proverbs 30:32) Wrong words can keep you out of the Promised Land. Remember the 10 spies of Israel who gave an evil report? (Numbers 13:31) God gave them over to what they spoke: "If only we had died in this wilderness." Numbers 14:2
Numbers 14:28 says, “… just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you.”
The Holy Spirit within us is there to help train us to speak the Words of the Kingdom.

The Invisible Kingdom
In this dispensation, it is an invisible Kingdom that we carry within us. (Luke 17:21) All of our needs and provisions come from this Kingdom and are obtained and manifest by the avenue of faith.
Most Christians are well established in the gospel of salvation. Praise God for the preaching of the cross for it is the power of God! Romans 1:16
As the End Days Church receives truth and matures, and as God permits, we will leave the elementary discussions and principles of Christ and go on to perfection. Read Romans 5:12 - 6:3.
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
The gospel of the Kingdom moves mature believers forward to receive our inheritance as sons of God. Read Romans 8:13-17. From the epistles, the letters to the church, we can see that much of our training from the Holy Spirit is focused on the development of the inward man; the spirit, the soul and the body. What is accomplished within will work its way outward with this goal: to rule and reign through Christ (Romans 5:17) and to embrace the world with the ministry of the gospel of reconciliation: the Good News of the Kingdom!
See 2 Corinthians 5:19-20.
This is where our intercession for The Church comes in.
THE CHURCH—God’s Plumb Line in The Earth
What is a plumb line? It is a tool that consists of a small, heavy object attached to a string or rope that employs the law of gravity to establish what is exactly vertical or true. It is used symbolically to refer to the divine standards of God and His Kingdom. Read Amos 7:7-8.
Truth and righteousness flow in God’s people to help the nations who have rejected Jesus …unknowingly. Jesus said, “They know not what they do.”
This is where our intercession for The Lost comes in.
Dual Citizenship—Dual Occupancy
We are learning by God’s Spirit how to live effectively in the powerful reality of God’s Kingdom while we have an earthly address.
Jesus showed us the way.
“I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.” John 5:30
“By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Hebrews 10:10
WORDS OF THE KINGDOM
Words are powerful. Jesus always spoke words of the Kingdom. “… the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.” John 12:49
When you speak the Who I Am in Christ Scriptures, they have the power to remove the inferior inner image we were born with. Ah, but the second birth, Beloved, is far superior, for we are born of incorruptible seed from Father’s perfect Kingdom! 1 Peter 1:23
In Christ Scriptures connect your spirit man to truth and will produce an abundance of fruit. Ephesians 3:20
But, what if a born again Christian doesn't know this or receive it?
“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6
If you know enough of God’s Word and how to act on it, Satan is defeated. That is why he uses different strategies to keep you from reading, studying, and getting the Word of God into in your heart.
The Sword of the Spirit is alive with powerful ammunition. It is like exploding a nuclear weapon upon your enemy when it is spoken forth from the inner man.
Let’s take a look at the two Kingdom’s that are in operation on earth.
"Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
"For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
'I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.'" 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
Saints, these comparisons make us mindful of the drastic differences in these Kingdoms. The worldly system looks down on the Kingdom of Righteousness and thinks it is inferior. Absolutely not true!
The Kingdom of God is far superior! What is upholding all things?
“The Word of His power!” Hebrews 1:3
JESUS ACCOMPLISHED IT ALL
Nothing was left out. Therefore, when you pray, pray in agreement enforcing the accomplished work of Christ.
PRAYING POWERFULLY FOR OUR STATES AND NATIONS!
