Your Heart: Birthplace of His Kingdom

Shyju Mathew

"Experience the Word of God, in the power of the Spirit."

[Italian Translation] When Jesus walked with the disciples on the earth, all He spoke to them about was the Kingdom of God! His end-time purpose was that God’s Kingdom would be established on earth as it is in heaven!

But, before the kingdom of God takes over the earth, it must first be born in your heart!

It is through the Church, the Body of Christ, that the Kingdom of Heaven is established on earth. Its time for the Church to wake up! God is in the process of waking up ‘sleeping’ believers in this end time. The Spirit of the Lord wants you to arise, dress yourself, for the King is about to meet you! 

Esther was required to be dressed in royal apparel before she met the King. Are we ready to meet our King?

Are we ready for His immense glory to be manifested, or is our apparel drenched in filth? Is our heart bitter with unforgiveness and filled with envy or is the fruit of the Holy Ghost manifesting in our hearts?

I believe God is about to reveal His glory on earth. Before that happens, the same glory must be manifested in our lives. For the Kingdom of God to descend into our hearts, it must be as it is in heaven. It is not enough to cry ‘holy, holy’ with our lips. Our lives must be holy.

Pure joy must invade our lives for ourselves and others, like it is in heaven, that the Kingdom of God may come. Non-stop worship must fill our hearts, not just through our services but even through our lifestyle, like it is in heaven.

Let’s fearfully guard our heart for what God has in store. Remember, you are not reading this post by chance. God has a promise to reveal His glory to you by allowing Holy Spirit to prepare your heart for His glory to descend. Once that happens, you automatically become His Kingdom carrier.

You are God’s instrument to bring God’s authority and will on the earth! With Christ in you, you are called to “Proclaim the Gospel to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and to give new sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are crushed, and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord!”(Isaiah 61:1)

How are you preparing your heart to receive His Kingdom?
