Now that you are born again it’s important to learn how to live out of the laws of the kingdom of God. Perhaps you have never heard that terminology before but it’s important to consider. Every kingdom has its own way of doing things, so too the kingdom of God. Because we were born into the Babylonian way of doing things we are not aware of the principles of Christ’s kingdom. This is where we have to get schooled. It’s not good enough to only focus on getting saved because we have so much to accomplish with our lives after we get saved with the remaining years He has given us.
I know you want to make a difference with your life. You’re not like everybody else that’s just droning around in some sort of reality television haze. No, you are part of God’s remnant. The remnant is hungry, thirsty, and presses into the word and ways of God. Everything in you wants more of the Holy Spirit. You feel like Micah with power shut up in your bones.
To understand how the kingdom of God operates it’s helpful to look at how Christ taught his disciples. Most of what he did was to teach them about the dominion power of the anointed word of God in this earth realm. You can study all the individual lessons like healing the sick, casting out demons, cursing the fig tree, rebuking storms, or multiplying fishes and loaves, but the big picture was the dominion power and authority of the word of God in this earthly realm. That’s apostolic lesson one.
So starting from that big picture of the word’s authority we can add seven vital principles to help us understand how we function within the kingdom of God. I call these seven power laws of the kingdom of God. Here we will simply introduce them and later we will explain them more.
1. THE LAW OF BEGINNINGS
The first power law is the Law of Beginnings. The Law of Beginnings states that everything new in your life starts with a Word from God. I know you are trying to do everything possible to get your life moving in the right direction. That’s good, but it’s vital you understand how the sons of God get things going within the kingdom. They start by waiting for the word of God. By that I mean they are listening carefully for the Holy Spirit to release a rhema word into their spirits. That rhema word is the unlocking of a new season. Within that revelation is the entrance to another level, another thing you need to do, clarity of purpose, or what decisions to make with your life. Notice this prophetic announcement in Isaiah that opens a new thing. Scripture says,
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
2. THE LAW OF THE SEED
The second power law is the Law of the Seed. The Law of the Seed is this; the seed knows what to do. As Christians we associate seed in this context to the revealed word of Christ in our spirits. I get really excited about this power law because the revealed word is like a seed released into our lives. Jesus taught his disciples that the kingdom of God is like a man that cast seed into the ground and that seed knows what to do. Awesome! That means that once you receive a revelation the seed of His word is fast at work and cannot fail. This means you don’t have to figure everything out. All you have to do is go about your business in faith and the seed will do what’s it’s designed to do, produce a harvest. Not any harvest, but your harvest.
“So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” (Mark 4:26-29)
3. THE LAW OF THE SOWER
The third power law is the Law of the Sower. The Sower is a spiritual warrior. He understands the five demonic assignments Satan uses to steal, kill, and destroy the rhema out of the heart of the sons of God. Understanding the Law of the Sower will move you beyond the powers of darkness that steal through pressure, ill treatment, debt, wealth answers all, and things forbidden, and launches you mightily into your harvest.
“And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables? The sower soweth the word. And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended. And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.” (Mark 4:13-20)
4. THE LAW OF DOMINION
The fourth law is the Law of Dominion. The Law of Dominion states that the anointed word of Christ has dominion in this realm. The Centurion understood this law. He told Jesus his servant was home sick. Jesus said he would come and heal the man. The Centurion amazed Christ when he declared, “Speak the word only and my servant shall be healed.” This is one of the greatest lessons you can learn, the power of the anointed word to take dominion in this earthly realm.
“So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11 AMP)
5. THE LAW OF FUTURE HARVEST
The fifth law is the Law of Future Harvest. The Law of Future Harvest understands that the seed of revelation enters the future and waits for your arrival. One day Christ demonstrated this law when he cursed a fig tree. Speaking to the fig tree he said, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it” (Mark 11:14). Can you imagine this? Surely the disciples were amazed. Here is Christ talking to a tree. They said nothing and saw nothing, but the next day they did. They saw the fig tree weathered up from the roots. Christ was not teaching how to curse fig trees. The lesson was the word of God released did what it was sent to do. Notice the results, however, of that seed were waiting in the future for the disciples to pass by.
“And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away.” (Mark 11:20-21)
6. THE LAW OF THE BUILDER
The Law of the Builder states that you can frame your world with the word of God. In Genesis Chapter 1 God reveals himself as the Voice that Speaks to create. In John Chapter 1 God reveals himself as the Word that Speaks to create. Christ said, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples” (John 15:7-8). Just as God framed the world with words you can frame your world with His words.
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:3)
7. THE LAW OF THE RUDDER
The Law of the Rudder teaches that you steer your life with words. Life is a journey. Some walk through life without direction, focus, or purpose blown here and there and everywhere by all kinds of circumstances. These never seem to find their lane. That’s not you. You understand the powerful principle of the Law of the Rudder. Apostle James taught that you are the captain, your heart is the boat, and your tongue is the rudder.
“Behold, the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder, whither the impulse of the steersman willeth. So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire!” (James 3:4-5, ASV)
These profound truths belong to you. Because you were created in the image of God it’s okay to act like your heavenly Father. In the Old Testament He was the Voice that created. In the New Testament He was the Word that created. In closing remember, “The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach”(Romans 10:8). God bless you.
