“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.'” Matthew 6:9-10.
The Kingdom of God is the rule of God in heaven and on earth in lives, societies, territories, and realms. God is the King in His Kingdom. In His Kingdom are His holy angels, His royal human family, His universe and planets. Earthly kingdoms rise and fall but God’s Kingdom is eternal and will prevail over all other kingdoms.
When we pray ‘Your Kingdom come’ we are asking Jesus to infuse our world with His manifested power and great glory (CHAYIL Glory) in the earth. It is a prayer of power and aggression against the kingdom of darkness. “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” Matthew 11:12.
The message of God’s Kingdom is good news, “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.” Matthew 9:35. The mission of God’s Kingdom is to eradicate evil, sickness, poverty, violence, corruption, and suffering humanity. God will do this through His committed servants. CHAYIL Glory is the manifested power and glory of the LORD Jesus Christ in and through His servants.
Our King has given us His power, authority, and glory to bring Him glory on earth by sharing and showing the good news of His Kingdom. We are God’s Kingdom enforcers on earth who will advance His Kingdom by serving in His mission to infuse the earth with His Glory. “And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Is. 40:5). We will pray, serve, and declare together: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God’s Kingdom shall infuse all the kingdoms of our world.
