1. Introduction

We began to discuss the authority that humans possess over the Kingdom of Darkness by asking, “What Did God Mean When He Sentenced Satan To Eat Dust, Eat Dirt Or Bite The Dust?”  As citizens of the Kingdom of God, the believer has been elevated to an equal position of authority with the Lord Jesus who rules eternally as King and Lord of all.

To recap, we also learnt that the words King and Kings encapsulate the meaning of Kingdom in the Greek language.  This is exciting, because God the Father is King. As heirs of God, we have been given the inheritance of  KINGSHIP. Thus the believer rules with God over all of the Kingdom of Darkness.

The authority of the Kingdom of God is twinned with priesthood, which represents separation from sin, dedication to the service of God and true worship.

When we compare the New Testament texts with God’s mandate to Israel in Exodus 19: 5 & 6, we see that God remains FIRM in His eternal Will or desire for humans to simultaneously RULE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND TO WORSHIP in the earth:

And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen (Revelation 1: 6).

And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:and we shall reign on the earth (Revelation 5: 10).

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation (Exodus 19: 5 & 6).

2. God’s eternal will or desire is for humans to rule as Kings in the earth

How is this revealed in the scriptures?

1. God created Adam and Eve to be rulers in the earth. However, Adam and Eve gave over the Keys of their kingdom or authority torule  unto satan and allowed him to rule them instead.

2. In generations to come, following the example of Adam and Eve, humans further collaborated with satan and his demons to the point of destruction and great rebellion against God. They permitted satan to infiltrate and rule in the earth through the principles of his ungodly and demonic kingdom/rule, teachings and lifestyle practices.

3. Meantime, God would establish His Kingdom through those who would live according to His righteous ways. These included the seven prophets born after Adam and Noah, who was the eight, according to revelation given to us by  our beloved Apostle Jude  (Jude 1: 14)

4. God was forced to wipe out the planet in the Flood of Noah’s day in order to remove traces of evil from the earth.

5. After the flood, citizens of the earth continued to collaborate with the Kingdom of Satan/Darkness. God was forced to disperse the nations at the Tower of Babel due to their rebellion against Him

6. Centuries later, Father God established the nation of Israel through Abraham, then called out his descendants to become a nation of Kings and Priests. His desire was for Israel to reestablish His rule and worship in righteousness and power in the territory of earth to which He had assigned them:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine.
And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation (Exodus 19: 5 & 6).

7. Through our Lord Jesus, God reestablished His Kingdom in the Church. We see the similarity between the New Testament Text and the mandate given in Exodus 19: 5 & 6 to the Nation of Israel:

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light (1 Peter 2: 9).

3. Scriptures reveal that the rule of God is manifested by Righteousness, Peace, Joy and Power

It is the Father’s desire or will for the principles and ways of His Kingdom to permeate the earth (Matthew 6: 10).   Righteousness, Peace, Joy and Power are FOUR KEY HALLMARKS  of  His Rule or Kingdom.  This is why it was so easy for the Apostles, especially Paul, to show the marked contrast between the lifestyles of the citizens of the Kingdom system of Darkness and the Kingdom System of God, which is Light.

We see a clear delineation between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan.  For example, since many of their rulers are controlled by the Kingdom of Darkness,  earth systems propagate and legislate the principles of the system of Darkness. These principles include but are not limited to abortion, homosexuality and lesbianism, lying, injustice, greed, extortion, wars and demonic power (manifested through Lodges, Witchcraft, The Illuminati etc).

In contrast, each believer, as a member of the Church or Kingdom of God in the Earth, preaches and lives out the gospel of righteousness, peace and joy and the demonstration of the Power of God:

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea  (Isaiah 11: 9)

 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea (Habukkuh 2: 14)

I speak blessings, health, peace and Angelic Protection over you. More to come.
