A KINGDOM, CITY, or HOUSE!

Matt. 12:25- But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them:

“Every (Any) ‘kingdom’ divided against itself is brought to desolation (laid waste), and every ‘city’ or ‘house’ divided against itself will not stand.

Apostolic strategies for “Occupying the land”:

1) A kingdom- “a region, territory, or apostolic center”

2) A City- “Corporate City Congregation or church”

3) A House- “local assembly, fellowship, or gathering”

 

1A.- 1) apostles, 2) prophets, and 3) teachers

2B- 1) City Elders, 2) Bishops, or 3) Overseers

3C- 1) Evangelists/elders, deacons, and SAINTS

Eph. 3:10 (Amp)- {The purpose is} that ‘through the church’ the ‘complicated’, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere. Vs. 11- This is in accordance with the terms of the eternal and timeless purpose which He has realized and carried into effect, in {the person of} Christ Jesus our Lord;

vs.12- IN Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access– an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear.

vs. 13- So I ask you not to lose heart– not to faint or become despondent through fear– at what I am suffering in your behalf. {Rather glory in it} for it is an honor to you.

Psalm 133:1-3- (Amp)– BEHOLD, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment poured on the head, that ran down on the beard, even the beard of Aaron (the first high priest), that came down upon the collar and skirts of his garments {consecrating the whole body}; (Exodus 30:25, 30) Like the dew of {lofty} Mount Hermon, and the dew that comes on the hills of Zion; for there the LORD has COMMANDED THE BLESSING, even life for evermore {upon the high and the lowly}.

*The order is not “house, the city, then a kingdom (region)”, as many have tried in the past, but a “kingdom alignment” (regional elders, or apostles & prophets), a “city” (City elders/Overseers), and a” house”- the local assembly (discipleship) receives the benefit of being connected to the city elders {ekklesia), and the city eldership connected to the regional apostleship, serving the church as an “apostolic center” with foundations, continuing in the “apostles’ teaching and fellowship, and breaking of bread, and prayers…” (Acts 2:42) (Eph. 2:20-22; 4:11) (Phil, 1:1) (I. Tim. 3:15,16)
