Lesson #221 The Intensity of the Kingdom

When reading the Word of God, we know that is helps to know if the author is speaking about a historical event, the author’s particular time or for the future. It also helps to know the ‘tense’; past-tense, present-tense, future-tense or Omni-tense when the word refers to modern day saints.

Our Omni-tense Father in heaven; is the face of eternity and unchangeable (James 1:17). When rebellion came, there was a need to create a place away from God (Is 14:10-14, 45:6, 7). Time became the face of the world and a temporary holding place for rebels (Mat 25:41, Rev 12:12).

When darkness roamed the face of the deep, Light was sent and He separated it from darkness (Gen 1:3, 4). God made an image of Himself into the realm of time (Col 1:15). He became the beginning, the Alpha to separate darkness and destroy the works of the devil (John 1:1, Rev 1:8, 1 John 3:8). Our Omnipotent Father foreknew and predestined us to be like Him, justified, glorified and rescued us with His blood that was slain from the foundation of the world (Rom 8:29, 30, Eph 1:5, 11, Rev 13:8). On the fourth day in the time of the world, the Omni-tense
made lights for the earth to relate to time (Gen 1:16, John 1:3). This is past tense.

The blood of Jesus washed away our sins and our acceptance of payment made us omni-tensely free of sin, never to be thought of again (Is 53:5, 2 Cor 5:21, Heb 8:12). God is a lot more merciful than we are faithful, and does not do abortions as we go through our trials and temptation (2 Thess 3:3). We are permanently Forgiven.

We are permanently Identified as His (Eph 4:30) permanently in Christ (2 Cor 5:17), presently in heavenly places
with Him (Eph 2:6). We have eternal life in Him now (1 John 2:25, 5:13).

We are permanently Saved (Rom 10:9, 10, Heb 9:28). The link into the eternal is connected to the now and nothing can separate us from His love (Rom 8:38, 39). We are not saved ‘when we get there’, but are already have salvation.

We are now permanently Healed. Since the blood of Jesus was given from the foundation of the world, the unchanging Word has been known as healer (Ex 15:26, Heb 13:3). The provision has already been made (Ps 103:3).  Isaiah says; by His stripes we are healed (Is 53:5). Peter says; be His stripes we were healed (1 Pet 2:24). Since the Word says you are already healed, do not let you tongue, thought or action be in agreement with the plan of the enemy (John 10:10). You already have it, so you are not trying to get it. You are believing more in the
impossibilities; with the faith that is built by hearing (Rom 10:17).

Even when we preach, we don’t have to say what we will have, or get healed later. Jesus and His apostles spoke the eternal into the now. The same way that Adam did not have to wait for Eve to grow, or Jesus did not have to wait for the FISH to be multiplied, he showed His dominion over time and gave us that authority. It’s nice to win a battle and get healed over time, it’s greater works to proclaim to yourself the miracle (dominion over time), to place the reality of God, what has already been done and is, into your now and lift up Jesus. This is how Jesus got things done quickly (Heb 4:12). The Spirit only confirms the Word with signs following (Mark 16:20). The only next day miracle was Pharaoh asking for the frogs to leave (Ex. 8:10). Even demons got quicker results to answered prayer (Mark 5:12), but you are more than a conqueror (Rom 8:38).

Present-tense; now faith, gets now results (Heb 11:1). The supply is always bigger than the circumstances (Phil 4:19). Gage your where your faith is, then build it by meditating on the promise (2 Cor 13:5). Reject the attacks in the battlefield of your mind and exercise victory (2 Cor 10:5, 1 John 5:4). Lay hold to eternal life and the promises, and expect the victory now and forever (2 Cor 5:7, 1 Tim 6:12).
