I want you to see them.  Notice there are nine! There are nine gifts of the Spirit. There are nine fruit of the Spirit. There are nine principles that Jesus set as He sat on the hilltop, on the mountain. I see visions of myself preaching on the mountain top up here like Jesus did! He’s preaching to the multitude and he’s saying, “Blessed are the poor in Spirit and the meek.” You’re going to see, if you look at it. After we finish here today, take time and make that your devotional and read it.

Micah 4:1-2, “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it and many nations shall come, and say: ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob, and he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.’ ”

One day soon… I feel like Dr. Martin Luther King! One day! One day! We’re going to have an experience coming soon! We’re going to be able to shout from the rooftops. We’re going to shout on this mountain coming up soon!

The Kingdom of God, simply defined, is the rule and the reign of Jesus Christ. I want to draw this up to a place to package it and finish it. The Kingdom of God is, just simply, the rule of Jesus Christ. In John 18:36 Jesus said, “My kingdom. My kingdom is not of this world… Not of the system of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight.” But, he said, “My kingdom is not from here.” When he says his Kingdom is not of. That word of means it’s origin. It’s source of life. It’s not found in the carnal realm, it’s found in the eternal realm. Father, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

You see, when we walk in the Kingdom we can walk in the display of what it’s like to walk in the heavenlies. I’m going to preach to you soon about Heaven and I’m going to preach to you about Hell. I can’t wait! Because what goes on here is a rehearsal for what’s going to happen in Heaven.

We will continue on Friday! Have a great week!
