He Reigns From Within – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 13th

(Jesus Set Up The Kingdom Of God Inside You)

“Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God.”

After a Church meeting, Clara asked her Group Leader, “Sally, I keep hearing you talk about the Kingdom of God. What is this Kingdom of God? And where is it?”

Sally replied, “The Kingdom of God isn’t a place; it’s the reign of God, where He rules as Lord and expresses Himself—His glory and His goodness—in you.”
“So when does it start working in me?”
“The Kingdom of God is already within you, it started the moment you were born again!” Sally said, smiling.

The Gospel today is that God’s Kingdom can be set up in the heart of every man, woman, boy and girl; it has arrived! Jesus said, “…If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23).

This never happened in the days of Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, David, Solomon and the patriarchs of old; but it did in our day, glory to God!

Mark 1:15 teaches that Jesus came to the earth preaching the Gospel of this Kingdom of God, saying the time for its fulfilment had come. Luke 17:20-21 AMPC also showed that the kingdom of God did “…not come with signs to be observed or with visible display, nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts]….”

When the Lord was brought before Pilate in John 18, He was asked some questions to which He responded, “…My kingdom is not of this world…” (John 18:36). God’s Kingdom isn’t a physical structure; yet Jesus said in Luke 17:20-21, “It has come!” Indeed, it has, because it’s in our hearts.

Jesus brought the Kingdom in Him. Now that we’ve received Him, we’ve got the Kingdom in us. The glory, grace and the life of God—all of divinity—have been set up in your heart! God is at home in you now. You’ve become, not just a citizen of the Kingdom, but also the carrier of the Kingdom and all its divine verities. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for your Kingdom that’s in my heart. Thank you for your glory and righteousness that are in and revealed through me.
