The Relevance of The Kingdom (Part One)

The Kingdom Corner Podcast

Host: Matt Geib

 

This episode begins a new series on The Kingdom Corner. "The Relevance of The Kingdom of God.

 

[00:02:20] - The relevance of the Kingdom of God

We will begin by defining what God meant in this verse.

 

[00:02:40] - Psalm 145:10-13 Explanation 

10 All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, And Your saints shall bless You.

11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power,

12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,And Your dominion endures throughout all [a]generations.

 

As saints of God we should declare and pronounce the glory of His Kingdom.

 

[00:04:38] - Matthew 6:10

10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Olam (עוֹלָם‎) means hidden or concealed

 

[00:07:38] - Search for understanding the Kingdom of Heaven

This is the purpose of The Kingdom Corner. We will search and dive into Biblical hermeneutics.

[00:12:15] - The Kingdom of God referenced in a future setting or time. 

Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”

 

Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers[a] has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.

 

[00:13:17] - I Corinthians 15:23-24 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. 24 Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.

 

[00:14:23] - The Kingdom of God is referenced in our here and here and now

 

[00:14:41] - Matthew 3:2,“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

 

[00:15:33] - Repentance, why repent

It is a change of your mind.

 

[00:17:47] - Matthew 6:10, Matthew 11:12, Matthew 12:28, Matthew 21:43, 

 

[00:19:33] - Luke 17:20-21

 

[00 :20:15] - Romans 14:17, I Corinthians 4:20

 

[00:21:03] - Galatians 1:13

Quotes from the Episode:

 

“By blessing God we begin to produce glory into the world.”  [00:03:46]

 

“The Kingdom of God, though it’s right there in front of those who will see it, it’s hidden and concealed, it’s not easily found.” [00:06:53]

 

“There is precedent in scripture for the kingdom of god to refer to that future time in heaven and when everything will come to an end on this earth as we know it.”  [00:13:54]

 

“Repentance simply means to have a change of mind, to have a change of mind and heart, and then you’ll have the perception to see, it won’t be hidden anymore.” [00:15:36]

Filling The Earth With His Glory (S1 E3)

For those saints of God out there that sometimes feel like they struggle in their Christian walk, they struggle to know how to do the works of the Kingdom, do the tasks that God would want them to do, to be the witness that God would desire them to do. I believe today's podcast will give you a key in how to begin to do that where it won't be a struggle for you anymore as we get into episode three of filling the earth with God's glory, episode three of filling the earth with God's glory or the glory of God.

Recap: Now in the last two episodes, these are some of the things when we began to look at: we started in Habakkuk 2:1-2, and Isaiah 6:1-4.

In both scriptures, there is the phrase, "the whole earth will be filled with the glory of God." In Habakkuk, it says the Glory of God will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. And that's what we've used as a premise begin.
Then we began to look at the word glory, what does glory mean? And we found out; basically, there are a lot of beautiful meanings like honor and reverence and goodness. The one thing that caught my eye was the glory is not a passive word; it's an active word. It means that there's action involved, and it has to do with production or making or a manifestation of a commodity and that commodity is the glory or the presence of God.

This process begins in the Heavenly realm when God created all the angels to praise them and to give Him glory.

In Isaiah, where we started, Isaiah was commissioned to his ministry. Then, from there, we began to get into the idea that this mandate of producing or making or manifesting God's glory was passed on to the saints of God.

We also saw that God never works outside of or apart from His glory. There's always glory involved when the works of God or the working of God is manifested.

John 7:37-39, that's a key verse that Jesus spoke prophetically of being filled with the Holy Spirit and that would be like rivers of living water that flowed out of each person, not a creek or a stream, but we have the potential to flow out with rivers of living water.

In episode two we discussed the Prophet like Isaiah was Ezekiel. Ezekiel 43 & 47, we read a lot about Ezekiel's temple or tabernacle, and it was all about how the water was flowing out from there. The water is a metaphor for the glory of God. You know, Habakkuk talked about the waters covering, the glory of God would cover the earth as the waters covered the sea.

And we began to look at the progression: First, there was water from that temple that Ezekiel was in or saw, it was ankle-deep. Then it was knee-deep, and then it was to his loins, and then it was so much that he could only swim in it; he couldn't stand it anymore. And I remember relating how I had seen on TV in the last two weeks, all the floods that were engulfing the city of Houston right now because of all the rain they had. That's what it will be like spiritually speaking when the glory of God covers the earth, and we're in that time now that it is beginning to take place. So that is where we left off the last time.

Being a Transformer
Being a transformer, being a Heavenly transformer on earth as it is in Heaven to bring the glory of God, how that works. We're going to look at that today.

Bill Johnson said the focus of repentance, which means it's just a change of mind to change our way of thinking.

We want to change our way of thinking today. There is living water inside of us where we can begin to bring and flow with the glory of God in Heaven from Heaven to earth.

There's a very interesting, powerful Greek word here that's carried in these passages, that it's mentioned four times in the scripture, and it's the only four times this Hebrew word is used.
The word is metamorphoo, or we get our word metamorphosis from it.

Paul said in Romans 12:1-2 , be transformed, be metamorphoo by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what the Goodwill of God, the acceptable will of God, and the perfect will of God is. Be transformed, be metamorphoo, have a metamorphosis.

2 Corinthians 3:18, we all with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror or glass the glory, (remember this study is about the glory filling your earth), the glory of the Lord.

Transformed or metamorphosed into the same image from glory to glory. Remember when I was going up in the mountains, was going from a higher pond and higher dam to have the next higher, the water was clearer and clearer, so there's a progression. We go up in a progression in the glory of God, and we're transformed.

Then the English word changes from transformed to these next two scriptures that are parallel scriptures are Matthew and Mark, the word used and you all know it, is transfigured. When Jesus was transfigured, six days later, it says in Matthew 17:1 & 2: Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, his brother, let them up on a high mountain by themselves, and he was transfigured or metamorphoo before them.

His face shone like the sun, and his garments became as white as light. Mark 9:1-8, it says, and I'll paraphrase this a little bit or go down to the second verse here: And he was metamorphoo, that is Jesus was metamorphoo before Peter, James, and John. Mark says, his garments became radiant and exceedingly white as no launderer on earth can whiten them. In other words, whiter than any white could be on earth, bright like probably blinding, it was blinding. And Peter wrote years later, and he says kind of the same thing, he says in 2 Peter 1-16-18 : He was metamorphoo or transfigured before them. His garments became radiant, exceeding white as no launderer on earth can whiten them. It sounds like he was quoting Mark, he's recalling and writing that down that he was there, he was a living testimony, and witness of what happened to Jesus.

Let's look a little bit then at this word, metamorphoo. It means to change from one form to another — kind of like a butterfly.

Our English word, it's a scientific word. Another scholar says it's a complete change that comes from the power of God and finds some expression in character and conduct. Morph, which is part of the word as the stresses on inward change, and the next part of the word stresses the outward change and the action that takes place, and we can think of that Jesus there.

metamorphoo, to change or morph into another or a different form, to become altered, become different, to manifest something different. Matthew states Jesus' face shone like the sun; His garments were like white light. And then I liked what Mark says, and Peter quoted him or recalled it again, talked about Jesus looking exceeding white as no launderer on earth could whiten the garment, I mean it was blinding.
Discover we say of the transfiguration, this is a Greek word derived to two words: the first refers to an outward expression one gives to what his innermost nature or being is inside of him, the change of activity. The phrase should or could be translated: his mode of expression was changed before them from something on the outward to a true, authentic showing of what was on the inward.

I like to say this is me, an outward expression of Jesus true inward nature was being manifested before them, and that's the key. We talked about the question at the beginning of the show here, that's the key to walking in a victorious Christian life and being the testimony and the witness that Jesus you want us to be.

John 7:37-29, you have the spirit inside of you or not to let it out like a creek, a stream, but we're to bust those damns wide open.

Good works are what we're going to talk about next, and transformation of the glory of God through us as the vessel will turn into a tangible commodity.

We're not talking about something you do in your flesh or works that you're trying to accomplish. We're talking about doing the works of the glory of God that's inspired by his glory flowing through as much the same way water flows through a transformer.

Light is produced that and electricity was produced, and I was told on that tour that it took care of covering 80% of the city of Seattle, those three dams by the water, and the power that came through those transformers. And so that's our first scripture. Let's look at our first scripture when we're talking about doing good works produced by glory.

Jesus said, Matthew 5:14, you are the light of the world. Remember light, transformer, water, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden. No one puts a light under a basket, but on a lampstand and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Matthew 5:16, the end of the passage here: let your light so shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, (you'll do good works and then what will happen?). They will glorify the Father, who is in heaven. Remember our tagline for our episode, our message, and our series is filling the earth was God's glory. Good works that are inspired by the glory of God will bring him further glory. Our model, of course, is Jesus Christ.

Acts 10:38: God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good, and he wasn't just a good guy saying nice things to people, out of that came good works; he healed all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with him. Now let's hone in on this, doing the good works increases God's glory.

He did all those wonderful miracles, and it brought glory to the Father. They came from miles around, and the glory of God was multiplying. Let's read some other passages that will nail this point.

Mark 2:1-12, and I'm just going to paraphrase: a man was lowered through the roof of a house, they broke up the ceiling. He was lowered down because he was crippled to Jesus, who was teaching down there. Jesus healed him, and the crowd was amazed, and they glorified God.

The next one, Luke 4:13-15: Jesus taught in their synagogues, and the people were in awe, and they glorified God. Luke, chapter seven, verses twelve to sixteen: a dead man was raised, fear and awe came on everyone, and they glorified God. Luke chapter seventeen verses eleven to fifteen: 10 lepers were healed. One turned back. Jesus said, where are the others? He says I don't know. I alone have come comeback. And he said Jesus to him, this day, your faith has made you whole, you are saved and healed, and the man with a loud voice then glorified God. Luke, chapter eleven, read that whole chapter: it's all about the situation where Lazarus was brought back to life. Even before Jesus got there, one of the sisters came to him and said, our brother is sick. And Jesus said, that's okay, this is for the glory of God. This is that the son of man might be glorified. And so by now, you're getting the idea that these works inspired by the spirit and the presence of God that comes into us through the spirit of God and then the workflow back out of us, glorify God.

Let's go into that verse next week, come back, and let's dissect that verse and look into what it means. Thank you for being a part of the kingdom corner. Thank you for being here.

Filling The Earth with The Glory of God (S1 E2)

Filling the Earth with the glory of God, Part two.

Recap: So just for a little recap from episode one, we started with two texts on this subject of filling the Earth with God's glory. Habakkuk 2:14 and Isaiah 6:1-4. 

 

Habakkuk 2:14 spoke about the glory of God covering the Earth as the waters (Waters were a metaphor), as water covering the sea. Also, Isaiah 6: 1-4, where Isaiah was commissioned for ministry, and he was cleansed. 

 

Remember the call that was put on his lips by the Seraphim. At the end of that verse, it states that the whole Earth (a prophetic declaration) would be filled with the glory of God. As we continued, we began to discuss, Kavod, and Doxa. 

 

Kavod is the Hebrew word, Doxa is the Greek word for glory: which means, richness, honor, goodness, excellence. 

*This is not a passive word, it is a word of Action.

 

 

 

 

His sons and daughters were not like the prophets of old where God's presence had to come upon them, or they had to be lifted into the Heavens. We always can live and work from his presence. Why? Because Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 2:4, and other verses in the New Testament specifically speak of us being seated in the Heavens with Christ, so we worked from the Heavenly perspective.

 

We view things from a Heavenly perspective because of the work that Christ did on Calvary. 

 

 

God first created the angelic hosts that were multitudinous in number. It says in Revelation that they would give Him glory and praise, and they were first created because glory had to be present for God to work. God never works outside of His glory, so they brought Him glory; they brought Him praise. Out of that, Isaiah was commissioned. Then, God began to create the Heavens and the Earth, and Man was made out of God's glory. 

 

 

Based on John 7:37-39, we are called as His sons and daughters to produce glory.

 

In Heaven, there's enough glory with all the angelic hosts, but here on Earth, there's a lack of glory, and that's one of our primary purposes, to produce the glory of God in His kingdom.

 

John 7:37-39, Now, on that last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying, if anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me as the scripture said, from his innermost being will flow rivers ( not creeks or streams of living water.)

 

 Rivers of living water, but He spoke of the spirit whom those who believe him more to receive this, hadn't received it yet. Because it says, the spirit wasn't, however, given because Jesus was not yet glorified.

 

We're talking about prophetic anticipation of the Baptism and the Holy Spirit. When the spirit would come and we wouldn't have to have it come upon us anymore but would live inside of us. 

 

 

 

 

We're beginning to go back into this; we are called as His sons and daughters now on Earth to produce God's glory, which brings His Kingdom honor. 

 

How does the glory, we as His sons and daughters produce, fill the Earth? A key is found in the last part of Isaiah. If you read that verse, Isaiah was there in the throne room while being commissioned and cleansed. The foundation of those angels is praising God, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, throughout all of Heavens. The foundations of the temple that Isaiah was in began to stress and strain under the beautiful glory of God that was starting to fill that whole place. 

 

 

Let's look at another: prophet. Remember, seer prophets. They received dreams and visions, and then they interpret them for the people of God. 

 

After putting these visions together of these two seer prophets, Isaiah and Ezekiel, we see two things that have happened so far:

  1. Isaiah, chapter six, verses three: the whole Earth is full of his glory. And Ezekiel chapter forty-three verses two puts it this way,
  2. The Earth has shown with his glory. 

 

Let's review and bring it out again. First of all, glory must be produced, and we talked about that a lot in episode one. And it must be provided in such quantity that the foundation of the temple becomes disjointed. Remember, Isaiah chapter six, verses four: the foundations began to tremble off the temple. And it trembles so much that the glory cannot help but escape and flow out. 

 

 

 

So my point is today, let's determine, to start this glory producing process. You have it in you if you have the spirit of God today. 

 

You remember how we praise God, we worship God, that's producing glory. That is the fruit of our lips to give thanks to His name. It begins with praise; it starts with worshiping. Every day, throughout your whole day, under your breath at work, being in an attitude of worship. 

 

He wants the church to be that glory producer, to be that bride without spot or wrinkle that brings His glory upon this planet. So it starts with each of us. 

 

 

My call to Action to you today is: break those dams up with inside of yourself that holds those rivers of living water. 

 

The world is waiting, and the world is craving having the rivers of living water cover this world as the waters cover the sea. It was a prophetic declaration, and we will be coworkers with God to bring that on the spurs, and we will see revival because of it.
