The Unshakable Kingdom

Psalm 103:19 (KJV)
The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
POINT A: We are in a Kingdom.
When you receive Christ as Lord, you were removed from one kingdom and placed in another.
Colossians 1:13 (KJV)
Who hath delivered us from the power (authority, control, government, grip…) of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Colossians 1:12-13 TLB
and always thankful to the Father who has made us fit to share all the wonderful things that belong to those who live in the Kingdom of light. For he has rescued us out of the darkness and gloom of Satan’s kingdom and brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,
There are 3 kingdoms mentioned in the scriptures;
  1. The kingdoms of this world
  2. The kingdom of Satan
  3. The kingdom of Christ.
Revelation 11:15 (KJV)
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
When you confessed Jesus Christ as your Lord, your citizenship changed. Even though you’re still in this world, you moved from the kingdom of darkness or Satan into the Kingdom of Light, Christ.
Romans 10:9 (KJV)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Confessing the Lordship of Jesus Christ with your mouth, creates a powerful shift. You’re immediately moved from darkness to light. You must understand the Kingdom of God very well, actually get a revelation of it. All your needs are ordained to be met through God’s Kingdom system. There are good husbands in the Kingdom, God fearing wives, babies, provision, sound health, peace, purpose, prosperity etc. are all in the Kingdom. Mt.6:33. This is why Jesus said to seek it first.
POINT B: This Kingdom Rules Over All.
In the kingdom of Light- Christ where you now belong and live, Satan has no say. He has no control or power or authority over you.
He cannot overthrow this kingdom. It’s beyond him. The kingdom of Christ rules over all. Ps.103:19. This means that all other kingdoms and subjected to this kingdom. All he will try to do is to influence you back to his kingdom.
POINT C: The Kingdom at Work. Old Testament 
As King, God rules over the whole earth. His kingdom rules over all. He has a throne that is called the throne of Grace. It is the Highest Throne in the universe. The kingdom of God rules over all. One day, the King of Heaven sent a message through his ambassador Moses to a king called Pharaoh. Exodus 5:1-2. Pharaoh replied, “I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go…”
He thought that his military power can match any other in the world. He didn’t realize that the King of Heaven doesn’t fight with swords and spears. God said, “oh, you will know me…” Pharaoh himself was a god that men worship. But the God of Heaven brought him to his knees and reduced him to dust. God demonstrated the superiority of his kingdom. Once you recognize that the Kingdom of God is moving in a particular direction, move with it. Because anything that stands in its way will be removed.
Psalm 24:1 (KJV) The earth [is] the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Child of God, There is no power that can stand against you!
There is no human being, no witch or wizard that can overcome you, except if that witch isn’t breathing air or receiving sunlight.
All organizations, powers, government, rulers, nations, deities, powers…are under the control of God’s Kingdom.
That difficult husband
That troublesome child
That quarrelsome wife
That intimidating supervisor
All, whatever it is , are under the dominion of His Kingdom. Mt.28:18!
Nebuchadnezzar’s Example.
Daniel 4:26 (KJV)
And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule.
Romans 13:1 (KJV)
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
God wanted to teach Nebuchadnezzar a lesson. He wanted him to know that His Kingdom rules over all. God said, I’ll humble your pride.
Sometime, Christians think that Jesus only has a say in the church.
They think his power is only limited to the Church.
That’s not true.
Every nation including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Nepal, no matter how moslem or pagan they are, belongs to Jesus.
You’re the one limiting Jesus. When you go to your places of work, you keep your Jesus in your bag or at home.
You don’t carry a kingdom mentality.
You don’t walk and talk like Jesus owns the place.
Many times in the dead night, I have walked all over my city and anointed the place, declaring the kingdom of God.
Daniel 4:28-37
All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.
At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.
The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
While the word [was] in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, [saying], O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling [shall be] with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ [feathers], and his nails like birds’ [claws].
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom [is] from generation to generation:
And all the inhabitants of the earth [are] reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and [among] the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.
Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.
See verse 32;
King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken….
Heaven has so much power that if the word wasn’t addressed specifically to Nebuchadnezzar , everyone in Babylon might have turned into an animal.
God didn’t need to call for a vote or a referendum to remove Nebuchadnezzar. His kingdom rules. He answers to no man.
the kingdom has departed from you…
At that moment as the word was released, he became an ex-president.
Nebuchadnezzar became violently and aggressively mad, no doctor in Babylon, (the most powerful and affluent empire on earth at that time) could cure him.
When God shuts, who can open?
And when he opens who can shut?
I see, some awesome blessings landing on someone’s head right now!
Blessing that can never finish.
Wells of prosperity that can never run dry.
Your prosperity will run your enemies crazy.
Your prosperity will send them to mental asylum!
God let Nebuchadnezzar stay mad for 7 years until all The Who’s who in medicine, sorcery, magic , Witchcraft, necromancy, voodoo, mental health…had visited and did their best on him to no avail.
When God locks your enemy, which key can open him?
Kingdom Authority
When you encounter the kingdom of God, the first thing that strikes you is the authority of the Kingdom. There is a throne in heaven where matters are decided. That is the Authentic Supreme Court of the Universe. More powerful than the Supreme Court of the United States. Nebuchadnezzar was mad for 7 years, yet in those years no one tried to take his throne. No one could move the people of Babylon in a sedition, or to conduct fresh elections and choose a new president. The presidential seat was empty for 7 years and no one could make a move. Every nation heard that the king was mad, yet no nation made war against Babylon.
God the King of Kings said to him, so that you may know that I’m the one in charge of this thing, your throne will be reserved for you.
Restoration
Daniel 4:36 (KJV)
At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.
God restored Nebuchadnezzar fully. His madness started instantly and his healing was also instant.
God removed the stigma , shame and reproach of 7 year’s madness.
He said,
  • my reason returned to me
  • The glory of my Kingdom and brightness returned to me
  • My counselors and my lords sought unto me. Nobody remembered that Nebuchadnezzar was mad. Who goes to take advice from a man who has been mad for 7 years and just came out of the bush? God removed that stigma permanently. Whatever label man has put on you is being removed now!
  • God established his kingdom and added excellent majesty to him.
POINT D: The Kingdom at Work. NT
The casting out of demons was the herald (announcement of the arrival) of the kingdom. Lk.11:20-22 Every time you see demons being cast out of people, that’s a demonstration of the Kingdom of Christ. It shows the superior power of one kingdom over another. It spells Satan’s doom and shows the defeat of his kingdom. The kingdom of Christ rules over all demons, principalities, sicknesses, tyranny, oppression and evil. Kenneth Hagin shared a testimony: there was a man who couldn’t sleep for a long time and was about to be confined to a mental institution because he was becoming a nervous wreck. Kenneth Hagin prayed for him and he took his seat. As he kept ministering to others, he suddenly was in the spirit and saw a monkey like creature ( a demon) sitting on the man’s head with his arms interlocked around his head. He told the man to come and commanded the demon to leave him. The demon replied I don’t want to go but I will if you tell me to. The demon left and the man was free.
1 Peter 3:22 (KJV)
Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
Matthew 28:18 (KJV)
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power(authority) is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Prayer Points.
  1. Father give me a fresh understanding of your kingdom. Nebuchadnezzar was told, “… until you know…” Dan.4:32. Since your sustenance is dependent on the Kingdom, how important it is for you to understand and have a revelation of it.
  2. Father since everything bows to your kingdom, let every situation in my life surrender to the authority of your kingdom.
  3. In Jesus name, I subdue situations and circumstances in my life under the kingdom of God.
