ONE who thinks with a kingdom mindset believes that we are joint heirs with Jesus Christ, He is our elder brother and we are charged with “…finishing the works of him who sent me.”
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:16-17
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. John 4:34
This mindset expects to “walk in the miraculous, perform the supernatural and fulfill the mandate that “…greater works will you do…”
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.and whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61: 1-3
This mindset expects to bring heaven down on earth “… thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” and although we do sin, we are not sinners in the sense that
“We are a new creation in Christ Jesus. Old things have passed away and behold all things become new.” Now by the blood of the Lamb I have been made the righteousness of God; now we walk in righteousness consciousness vs. sin consciousness… Corinthians 5:17
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
This mindset expects to be used by God in the earth, even as our elder brother Jesus was, and the mystery of the ages, Christ in you the hope of glory will be made manifest for the world to see in the saints.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8b
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
This mindset understands that we start out as children of God when we are born again, and that we are to grow up into maturity into the head, Jesus Christ, as sons of God (no longer children), and it’s the sons who do the work of the Father.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. John 1:12
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Romans 8:14
Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:7
This mindset looks forward to the fullness of Christ being formed in us.
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you…Galatians 4:19
Finally, this mindset shares in the love and communion of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and out of that flows their heart and mind!
“that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” John 17:21
