#3 The Kingdom Gospel

Gospel simply means good news. Gospel in the Greek is a type of word called adjective in English. An Adjective is a word that describes a Noun or Pronoun. Jesus never told us to go and preach good news. We were not called to preach the gospel but the gospel of the kingdom. 

Kingdom is two words – meaning a king exercising dominion over a domain.

Jesus never told us to preach the gospel of healing, salvation, deliverance or prosperity though they are popular in the 21st century, because they are just side benefits of the gospel of the Kingdom. The only gospel Jesus told us to preach is the gospel of the kingdom. Mat 3:1-2; Mat 4:17-23; Mat 9:35. 

The Bible says that God is a Spirit (John 4:24) If God is a Spirit and He made man in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-28) then man is primarily a spirit. We are not our bodies but first and foremost Spirit which fulfils the image portion of God. We have a soul and we live in a body (1Thes 5:23). 

Likeness talks about the function. God is a King and He exercises domain over heaven. God Who is Spirit created man/woman a Spirit (thus image) but to fulfil the likeness of God man must also function like God. God created earth, the garden of Eden which was a replica of heaven so that as God is the manager exercising dominion in heaven, man can also manage and exercise dominion over the earth. Unfortunately, man lost that dominion after the fall. 

That is why Jesus did not bring the gospel of salvation, healing, deliverance, prosperity etc because that is not what man lost. Instead He came with the gospel of the Kingdom of God so that what God had in mind before time in eternity when He said let’s make man in our image and likeness will be restored. 

When we preach the Kingdom of God, all the side benefits will also manifest because they are embedded in it. In the new testament the kingdom of God is no longer in a physical place like it was in the old testament in the garden. Now the kingdom of God is in you Luke 17:20-21. Wherever you go, the kingdom of God is with you. The kingdom is no longer external but internal. You are now an ambassador of the kingdom.

According to Rom 14:17 the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy: hence since the Kingdom is in you these traits are also in you. Therefore, wherever you step you establish the kingdom of God. Stop complaining when you’re going through diverse challenges; know that you have the solution. Don’t try to fit in but stand out because you’ve got something in you that others don’t have. There is a treasure in you that others don’t have 2 Cor 4:7. The power of the Holy Spirit is the dynamic ability to get things done and this power is embedded in you. With this power, you can terminate the generational disease in your family. You can end strife, arguments and live peacefully in your home. You can break that limitation in your family, work, community etc. by the power at work in you. Eph. 3:20.

God bless
