UNDERSTANDING THE KINGDOM OF GOD
4 November 2001
When the people realized that they would not be permitted into the tabernacle of God, they panicked and thought that they were all going to die - Verses 11-13
Aaron and his sons were now told that part of their service for the Lord was to bear the responsibility of sin for the nation - Numbers 18:1-7
This responsibility before God and man is still with us today - but now our High Priest is not Aaron, but Jesus Christ, who the redeemed on this earth represent - Hebrews 8:1-13
When a believer in Christ is in a back-slidden condition, he will still be a minister, but shall bear his iniquity. However his access to God is cut off! Ezekiel 44:1-23
Each believer in Christ is now a priest before the Lord - 1 Peter 2:1-25
As priests of God we are not to focus on building our own kingdom, but the Kingdom of God. Luke 12:22-40
The Levites were not permitted to own land, once they entered into the Promised Land. They were to live by the tithe of the eleven other tribes - Numbers 18:20-24
A believer in Christ should come to understand that he does not own anything on this earth. Instead he should understand that he is a steward (manager) of Godís property which has been leased to him for a certain time - Luke 12:41-48
A manís body has a maximum lease of 120 years, then it will be taken back - Genesis 6:3
The lease can be shortened if the terms are violated by the man (woman) - Galatians 6:7-9
At the end of the lease, there will be a full audit - 1 Corinthians 3:11-23
How is your lease program progressing?
