How Then Shall We Live? The Answer
A Positional Statement
God the Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, Creator of everything, did not forget or leave out anything in His plans and directions for living successfully on planet earth. He did not leave us lost and without clear, precise directions. His plans are complete. His plans are not difficult to know. They are written clearly in His Word. They are difficult to perceive only when viewed through incorrect eyes. The eyes of this world. They are, however, crystal clear when viewed through the eyes of a reborn spirit and a renewed mind that is trained in His Word and directed by the wisdom that comes from the ever-living, abiding presence of the Holy Spirit God. It is inconceivable and utterly ridiculous to believe that our God, who has so completely provided such a beautiful place for us to live and furnished it with everything we need to live well, would not have provided a plan, a guide, telling us how to be successful no matter what the Kingdom of Darkness creates in situations, circumstances, and relationships around us.
It is important and extremely imperative to know that the Kingdom of Darkness has no power over the reborn spirit, or for that matter anyone who does not give them permission. Satan and his Kingdom work through deception. They create situations, circumstances, and relationships that appear insurmountable and look and feel certain to control your destiny. They cannot. They do not have the authority or power unless we/you give them permission.
Too often we have yielded authority and permission because we did not know we had power over the works of the Kingdom of Darkness and did not know how to use the tools God the Father has delivered to us as citizens in His Kingdom, The Kingdom of God. Citizens have rights under the Government (Kingdom) of which they are citizens. Each Kingdom (Government) has territory and the citizens in that territory have rights given to them by the King of their Kingdom. Their safety, well being, prosperity, healthcare, opportunity, and protection are the sole responsibility of the King of the Kingdom in which they are citizens. It would be a derelict, unworthy King who did not provide for the citizens of his Kingdom. The King actually owns everything in the Kingdom, and it is his honor and function to be the complete and only source and supply for his citizens. He must provide an atmosphere where his citizens can prosper and be in good health.
Citizens are not free to act indiscriminately without regard to and in consideration of the government of the Kingdom. Citizens are special. They are the highest form of recognition provided by the King. They have rights and privileges and responsibilities. They are not slaves or mindless, blind clones or robots. The King allows them the right to choose, the choice of how they will then live.
The King must provide the laws (Dynamics) of the Kingdom. The government – the rules, the dynamics, the principles and the opportunity to choose, is solely the discretion of the King. There is no Congress or Legislature to decide and write the laws. There is no majority voice of the people. The King decides and provides the laws (Dynamics) of the Kingdom. His laws must not be onerous or overbearing. They must be fair and reasonable. There is a conduct of behavior that goes with being in right standing with the King. Right standing entitles citizens to full Kingdom benefits. To be in right standing, a citizen must know the laws of the Kingdom. Not what someone said the laws were, but what the King said the laws are. If they know what the King has decreed then they can follow and obey and be in right standing with the King. Right standing entitles citizens to the full provisions of the King for his Kingdom. To enjoy the benefits of the Kingdom, one must know the benefits that are provided by the King.
All through the King’s Word, He tells His Citizens how they then shall live in order to be a Citizen in good standing and to be entitled to and receive the full benefits of the Kingdom. Those directions provide complete and total health, wealth, prosperity, peace, joy, love, redemption from the Kingdom of Darkness and full restoration of the government relationship and benefits of the Kingdom of Light – The Kingdom (Government) of God. The Words of the King are sure, they are steadfast and eternal. They cannot be voided. They do accomplish what the King says they will accomplish. They are immutable.
The King tells us that His plans for us are for good, for hope and for a future, and not for disaster.
