We Are Key People

The following are my notes from a wonderful class my husband and I took to learn about the Kingdom of God.

 

We are KEY PEOPLE. The Lord has anointed us to open key places in your city, country, and time. See yourself as the key to open the doors in your area.  We bring breakthroughs! We open doors, we enter in and we overcome the darkness with the Light of God. We are key to what God is doing here and now in this region.

 

How to See Yourself as a Key Person:

  1. We are the key to what God is doing here. We are a key to a slot in this society to unlock territory and breakthrough.

  2. Only the righteous can open the door. We have been declared righteous by what Jesus did for us, not by our works. We are a key because Christ is in us. It is he who does the work.

  3. We are the solution to war the darkness in our area.

  4. If you don’t see yourself as a key person, then others won’t see Christ in you. The Kingdom of God is within you. The Kingdom of God is here, now.

  5. We work together in a team to push a cause – the cause of Christ.

  6. This cause is bigger than the giants in your land. The Cross of Christ is bigger than the obstacles.

  7. Push the Gospel Message through your ‘house’ to change people. God changes the hearts of people when they get a vision of being a Kingdom Person. That’s how we change the World.

  8. The Lord will anoint you with His Spirit and His Power to do His work. It’s not about us or our agendas. The Lord will lead you and the Holy Spirit will teach you on your journey.

  9. God will send the rain and the blessings because of the Presence of Jesus in us, not because of what we do or don’t do.

  10. This Spiritual Rain makes things grow. God has a purpose and a plan.

  11. Relationships create life. Jesus wants relationship, not religion. It’s the LIFE in the plant that produces the structure. The structure does not produce LIFE. The more Godly relationships we have – the more LIFE. Connect to LIFE. We are all Key People in the Kingdom of God.

  12. We are safe people and we create safe places. When you know who you are you can bless people. When we work together in faith ALL of God’s people are key components.

  13. Our faith and our relationships will grow. Just as a baby born with a baby skeleton grows over time, we will adapt and change to facilitate growth.

  14. We will all bear fruit. We all have something to say. Don’t disqualify yourself! God has already qualified you for the work He has for you. God has make you for such a time as this. You are a Key Person to unlock destinies and overcome the darkness in the world around you.

  15. Let go of old concepts and embrace the new ones that God shows you. We are dynamite. and we receive power from on High to be His Witnesses. He will accomplish amazing things through us.

Don’t Disqualify Yourself for What God Has Qualified You For!

Don’t’ disqualify yourself. Especially for something God has already qualified you for.  Before you were born He gave you special gifts.  And guess what – nobody can take them away.  The gifts of God are eternal. They are before repentance. Yes, that what the book says.  Ever wonder why there are so many talented people out there?  That’s how God made them. And He is so good that He gives us all gifts whether we come to Him or not. And He doesn’t take them back either.

So don’t let other people disqualify you. They don’t get to tell you what you can and cannot do with your gifts.  God does. He was the one who gave them to you – not them.  If they don’t want to let you use them to bless them – let it go and move on.  It’s not really about you anyway. Some people get very insecure when they see you operating in your talent.  Don’t be boastful. Don’t be prideful. Just respect their decision and move on. Don’t let people reject you because of their own insecurities.

Being perfect is not based on what we do. It is not to be without fault. We all have faults. We all have shortcomings. The bible definition of perfect is to be complete – and in Christ we are.  All of our weaknesses He uses to display His glory an His strength.  We are whole, we are complete, and we are finished in Christ. Just be.

And for me, I had to repent of disqualifying myself.  I would hear one bad report and throw in the towel. It was easier to quit than to take a stand and say, “No, you don’t get to tell me that. I do not receive that, in Jesus Name.”  God doesn’t make junk. I had to stop criticizing myself because when I did, I was criticizing something God had made.  And who am I to criticize Him and His handiwork?

He made you with love and tears.  And He loves you – right here, right now.

From BibleGateway:

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (Romans 11:29 KJV)

For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.] (Romans 11:29 AMP)

God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never canceled, never rescinded. (Romans 11:29 MSG)

God Makes No Logical Sense – 7 Kingdom Rules that Defy Logic

 

God really does not make any logical sense.

1+1 does not equal 2 in the Kingdom of God.

This whole Kingdom thing, the invisible becomes visible.

The real is not real.

The dead live.

Life is everlasting. We don’t die – we just fall asleep till Jesus comes back.

Jesus resurrected from the dead. He brings life.

Wow, you either believe or you don’t . But don’t expect it to  to make any sense logically. Seriously. It will not make sense in your head. That’s why they call it faith. You can’t prove it. but you can see it – like the wind. You can see what it does and where it goes by the way things move. It just is. Either you believe it or you don’t.

7 KINGDOM RULES THAT DEFY LOGIC:

 

1.  Division means multiplication.

Remember the bread and the loaves? Divide it, break it,  and it multiplies. Yeah. I think my math teacher was wrong! And hey, I guess I should have skipped that Calculus class, lol!

Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand

2.  Subtracting means addition.

Remember Gideon and 20,000 to 10,000 to 300 with empty jars and trumpets? Here is a refresher. I had to read it again too. I just remembered God made absolutely no logical sense in this story, and I loved it!

Gideon Defeats the Midianites

3. Praise brings Victory – not killing each other.

Remember Jericho? Walk around a wall for 6 days and give a mighty shout. And on the 7th day – God brought down the walls! And the enemy was defeated with a shout! That makes no sense, but I love it!

Joshua 6

 

4.  The swords we use are not made of metal – but are the Word of God.

Kingdoms are thrown down – by the Word. Princes, Principalities, Powers  are defeated – by the Word.

The Armor of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God,so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,  and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.  Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,  for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. (Ephesians 6:10-20 NIV)

5.  Jesus brings life, and life more abundantly – not money, fame, fortune, or relatives.

Yeah. Life in the world is at war with life in the Spirit. That’s just how it is. Want money, fame, fortune? Welcome to the world. Want eternal life? Then deny yourself, take up your cross, and as He said, “Follow me.” Life isn’t measured the same in the Kingdom of God.

6.  The Blood of Jesus brings life – not death.

In the world of logic, when someone bleeds to death they die. The life is in the blood. In Jesus case – his blood brings life, and life more abundantly! His blood protects us. His blood heals us.  In the horror movies blood brings death. But in the Kingdom of God, Jesus blood brings LIFE! Forget not all his benefits:

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. (Psalm 103:1-6 NIV)

7.  God SPEAKS things into existence.  And so can we.

God said, ” Let there be light. And there was light.” Out of the mouth flows the abundance of the heart.  The power of life and death is in the tongue. What are you talking about today?  How sick you are? How bad you feel? How broke you are? Change your words. I had to start saying what God said. My mouth had to get into agreement with what God said, not what I felt. I am blessed. I have more than enough. My cup runs over. I am the head and not the tail. I will lend to many nations. I am loved. I am chosen. I am wanted. Out of all the people on Earth GOD chose us to be His! And then things changed.
