Inflation vs. The Kingdom: A Tale of Two Kingdoms

Luke 21:26 People will be fainting from fear and from the expectation of what is coming on the world

Give God one year of your life at WCC and in that year I guarantee that you will:

1. Know God better.

2. Be able to get free from the issues of your past.

3. Discover your purpose and giftings in life.

4. Be given opportunities to use your giftings to make a difference in the life of others. 

5. Get Connected to God’s kingdom- which is the answer to all our issues.

Jesus told us not to worry about food, clothing, or life because we have a heavenly Father who loves us and wants to provide for us.

Matthew 6:25-26, 31-33 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?... So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Under the curse we worry and run after provision. In God’s kingdom, we have a Father that wants to give you or add to you the things you need.

Luke 6:20 Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

Hebrews 2:6-8 What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them.

One Thing to Know: God has to find a man or a woman in the earth who will come into agreement with Him to open the spiritual door for the Kingdom of God to have legal jurisdiction here.

Luke 17:21 Later, he was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he gave them this reply: “The kingdom of God never comes by watching for it. Men cannot say, ‘Look, here it is’, or ‘there it is’, for the kingdom of God is inside you.”

You are the gatekeeper of God’s kingdom.

Matthew 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you forbid on earth will be what is forbidden in Heaven and whatever you permit on earth will be what is permitted in Heaven!”

Luke 18:8 when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

When we don’t understand how God’s kingdom operates in us, we come to live like the rest of the world around us, living paycheck to paycheck, never being able to focus on our purpose and assignment in life.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Galatians 4:1 What I am saying is that as long as an heir is underage, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate.

Genesis 3:19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food 



Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

In Christ, we have been set free from the curse that Adam brought on all humanity.

Matthew 22:29 “You are very wide of the mark,” replied Jesus to them, “for you are ignorant of both the scriptures and the power of God.

There are two reasons why we don’t walk in the blessing of God’s kingdom: 

1. We have lived all our lives under the earth curse system of poverty and have never been taught God’s Kingdom and His principles of provision. 

2. Our minds are full of the world’s negative thinking and training, we do not see a way out, even though one might be staring us right in the face.

The number one thing we have to do when we come to Christ is to renew our thinking through God word.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind

Romans 12:2 Phillips Version Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, 

Jesus spent all His time explaining how the kingdom operated.

Matthew 13:24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like…

Matthew 13:31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like…

Matthew 13:33 He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like…

Matthew 13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like…

Matthew 13:45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like…

Matthew 13:47 “Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like

Mark 4:30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it?

Luke 5:1-7 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”

Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink…  For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken

1 Corinthians 10:3 Now these things which happened to our ancestors are illustrations of the way in which God works

Everything God does, He does through law.

Matthew 22:29 “You are very wide of the mark,” replied Jesus to them, “for you are ignorant of both the scriptures and the power of God.

Genesis 13:2 Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.

Genesis 12:1-2 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 

Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

God found legal access into the earth through a man who believed him even when it made no sense.

“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great”

Galatians 3:14, 29 Christ redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus… If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
