Kingdom people have no earthly rights -we give up our rights for the sake of our King.
You think I'm wrong? Ask Hosea why he is still
married to an unfaithful prostitute? Ask Ezekiel why he is lying on his
right side (for 390 days)? Ask Jeremiah what he is doing down in that
cistern? Ask dignified Isaiah why he is walking around naked? Ask
Joseph why he is in prison? Ask Job what happened to his children? Ask
Paul what all those bruises and scars are about? Ask Peter why he is
upside down on a cross? Ask our Lord and Savior, Jesus, why He -the
Lord of all Creation, King of Kings, God of gods, is dying a criminal's
death? These are Kingdom leaders. These are people living in God's
favor. These are people of influence. These are people who manifested
and walked in true spiritual power.
The incredible thing is that these people would do it
again -they counted it a privilege to serve God, even under persecution,
even when they didn't understand, even when death was the inevitable
Two things seem obvious to me. First, most people
don't really understand the Kingdom -they never did and they never
will. Second, those who begin to understand the Kingdom -those who even
just scratch the surface of understanding -realize that the Kingdom,
intimacy with God, the love of Father is worth more than life itself.
