Lesson #215 The Mind of the Kingdom

What we see with our eyes is a very small piece of reality. Our new man, our born again spirit (2 Cor 5:17) has a sense of yearning to connect to our mind that’s in the process of being renewed (Rom 12:2). The Spirit is revealing the things that we cannot see with our natural eyes or hear with our natural ears (1 Cor 2:9, 10). Those of us who have humbled ourselves to the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16) will be exalted (1 pet 5:6) with understanding (Ps 119:99), insight (Heb 5:14), perfect peace (Is 26:3) and God given dominion (Gen 1:26).

There are angels all around us (Ps 34:7, 91:11). Elisha was a prophet of God who could see into the spiritual realm and speak with power and authority (2 Kings 6:16-18). John the Baptist was a greater prophet then he was, but the least in the kingdom of God is even greater than him (Luke 7:28, John 14:12).

The Kingdom of God is only seen by those who are born of the Spirit (John 3:5) that is within us (Luke 17:21). This is a revelation of things that are quickly (Heb 4:12) available for us from the Spirit (1 Cor 2:13). In the room you are in, there are many things available that cannot be seen with natural eyes. For example if you have cable or satellite television, there may be hundreds of channels provided from your carrier that simply need to be tuned into. In the spirit realm, there is healing, creative miracles and demon binding angels ready for you to proclaim the word of God (Ps 103:20, Matt 18:18). New eyes, knees, hearts, spiritual chiropractors and more are right in front of us ready to connect; with a mix of faith (Heb 4:2) and the Word from our mouth (Col 3:1, 2) and based on the promises of God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2).

The natural man is our enemy (Rom 8:6-8, 1 Cor 2:14). When we put on the new man (Col 3:10), sitting in authority in heavenly places (Eph 2:6), we begin to let go of this involvement with natural unbelief. This kind of unbelief that is guided by our five senses is diminished by fasting (Matt 17:21). You can train your body that your mind rules and Jesus is Lord instead of the natural cravings (Dan 1:15, John 4:32). In the spirit, you can see yourself healed because of the promise that it’s already available (1Pet 2:24). You can see yourself ministering the Kingdom of God because you know your authority (Mark 16:16).

When Jesus told His disciples to feed the multitude with the available power around them, they looked in the natural (Luke 9:13). All the years of religion from centuries of unbelief guided them away from the knowledge of God (John 9:2). Many of us have gone to churches that have nice programs filled with religious clichés that seemed like the truth (Prov 16:25), but if you are looking for the truth without a fashion show (Luke 7:25), you willbe rewarded if you diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6) and find yourself to be a champion (Rom 8:37).

God doesn’t create failures (Is 49:1, 2). He chose you and can depend upon you because He put His own Spirit there (John 15:16). He’s the perfect teacher that shows you the bright future (John 16:13). There may have been delays on your journey, but you have been hand-picked (Luke 12:7) to become part of a revival that the world has never experienced before. You have the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16). You have the mind of the Kingdom
(Luke 8:10).
