The Kingdom of God is no longer something you understand; it is something you function in!

Through your life as an Ambassador of Christ, you will reconcile the world to Christ!

An Ambassador of Christ brings people into the understanding of who they really are and what happened in their lives 2000 years ago!

Exact representation of your King, Christ, is the power of your position!

“…The ultimate proof of your faith is not the supernatural; it is rest – when your world comes into order, and you operate from a place of rest. Fulfilling nothing, but His purpose. His purpose was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms. All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth is to fulfil His purpose. The Lord is taking us from one level of glory to another. He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [set apart for Him, purpose-driven]. For many are called (invited, summoned), but few are chosen. When the purpose of God becomes your assignment, God will give you the life to fulfil it. God will extend your days for the purpose of His assignment. Even your so-called failures are woven into the fabric of the purpose God has called you to. Assignment becomes your leverage when it is assigned to purpose. The Bible is a trust document, testament, as an inheritance through a legacy. God is going to leave a legacy through you. He has made an agreement and bequest so that His legacy could go on. This is no longer the covenant of Moses (priest), but the covenant of David (king/priest). God has sent ambassadors amongst the nations of man, nations of a fallen man. Through the life of an ambassador, you will reconcile the world to Christ. Sin is not being at the place where God wants you to be, and not fulfilling His (your) purpose. An ambassador is not a title; it is a function. Rightly representing your King is the power of your position. The Kingdom of God requires full and undivided attention…’” –

MATTHEW 19:16-26 (AMP)

16 And someone came to Him and said, “Teacher, what [essentially] good thing shall I do to obtain eternal life [that is, eternal salvation in the Messiah’s kingdom]”?

 17 Jesus answered, “Why are you asking Me about what is [essentially] good? There is only One who is [essentially] good; but if you wish to enter into eternal life, keep the commandments.” 

18 He said to Jesus, “Which commandments?” And Jesus answered, You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not give false testimony;

 19 Honor your father and mother; and love your neighbor as yourself [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others]. 

20 The young man said to Him, “I have kept all these things [from my youth]; what do I still lack?”

 21 Jesus answered him, “If you wish to be perfect [that is, have the spiritual maturity that accompanies godly character with no moral or ethical deficiencies], go and sell what you have and give [the money] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me [becoming My disciple, believing and trusting in Me and walking the same path of life that I walk].”

 22 But when the young man heard this, he left grieving and distressed, for he owned much property and had many possessions [which he treasured more than his relationship with God].

23 Jesus said to His disciples, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, it is difficult for a rich man [who clings to possessions and status as security] to enter the kingdom of heaven.

 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man [who places his faith in wealth and status] to enter the kingdom of God.” 

25 When the disciples heard this, they were completely astonished and bewildered, saying, “Then who can be saved [from the wrath of God]?” 

26 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

4 August: Come Dine at His Table, by Dr. Hennie Lubbe: “Don’t exchange the truth of your position for the life of your circumstances.”

2 SAMUEL 9:1 (AMP)
And David said, “Is there still anyone left of the house (family) of Saul to whom I may show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”

11 August: The Spirit of Father and Son, by Dr. Ben Kleynhans:“To alleviate a curse upon the earth, we need the ministry of father and son.”

MATTHEW 23:37-39 (AMP)

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones [to death] those [messengers] who are sent to her [by God]! How often I wanted to gather your children together [around Me], as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. 

38 Listen carefully: your house is being left to you desolate [completely abandoned by God and destitute of His protection]!

 39 For I say to you, you will not see Me again [ministering to you publicly] until you say, ‘Blessed [to be celebrated with praise] is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’

18 August: The Father of Glory, part 4 of the series: The Spirit of Father and Son, by Dr. Ben Kleynhans:“Elisha received the spirit of Elijah because he stayed connected to the order.”

PROVERBS 18:2 (AMP)

A [closed-minded] fool does not delight in understanding,
But only in revealing his personal opinions [unwittingly displaying his self-indulgence and his stupidity].

25 August: The Power of Ambassadorship, part 1 of the Ambassadorship series, by Dr. Ben Kleynhans:“When the purpose of God becomes my assignment, God will give me the life to fulfil it.”

EPHESIANS 1:4 (AMP)
just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight.
