Word from Deborah Monro Bugler
I have been praying and meditating upon what God has been saying to me:
WHAT IS BIRTHED IN THE SPIRIT WILL BE BIRTHED IN THE NATURAL
So this also speaks volumes when we declare:
IT TAKES A GOVERNMENT IN THE SPIRIT TO CREATE A GOVERNMENT IN THE NATURAL.
This is Kingdom thinking, this is Godly thinking, and the Spirit of the Lord is moving swiftly through the church today, now, to blow away the old cobwebs of deception and thinking, to shift our focus off selves and bring CLARITY to the church in her thinking and in her approach to the shifting climate in GOVERNMENT around the world. The Lord is putting NATIONS on our hearts and GOVERNMENT sourced from and founded on RIGHTEOUSNESS. (I know every person here has at least ONE NATION on their heart- I have 3 nations on my heart- He is turning the compass of our hearts outward in these days. And – whether you have a family member in that nation, whether you lived there before, if it is a place you aspire to visiting in the future or you have been before as a visitor and God has placed the people, the history, the government of that nation on your heart, the restrictions and constrictions that nation is facing – whatever the reason, that is the beginning of kingdom thinking for nations for the church in this hour.
YES, IT IS ABOUT KINGDOM.
The Lord is speaking to me to remind the church, and declare: IT IS ABOUT THE KINGDOM and not our own place in the kingdom, that comes FIRST!
Matthew 6:33 says BUT SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of Heaven, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, then all things will be added unto you.
There are 2 points here: about KINGDOM and about SELF
Firstly, the KINGDOM is the spiritual reign or authority of God.
It encompasses cities, countries and the kingdom of heaven covers nations, in fact the whole world. It appears in the Bible 162 times in the NEW TESTAMENT as the KINGDOM of GOD in the Hebrew and KINGDOM of HEAVEN in the Greek.
[In the first place, Matthew 6 is the middle chapter and the integral part of the SERMON ON THE MOUNT - Chapter 5 contains the Beatitudes, chapter 6 the LORDS Prayer, chapter 7 the Golden Rule.
At the beginning of chapter 5 Jesus SAT DOWN, He didn’t get up and start waving his arms around pacing the hills and the crowds, but He sat down and began to teach the nine blessings of the Beatitudes verses 3-12.
Verse 13-16 Jesus tells us we are the Salt of the earth, The LIGHT of the World – we are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Then verses 17-20 Jesus explains He came not to abolish the law or the Prophets, but to FULFIL THEM and v 20 “Unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Jesus explains more on judgement with murder, adultery, divorce, oaths, eye for an eye, loving your enemies, giving to the needy, prayer and fasting, our treasures in heaven and not to worry, v21- Chapter 6. Chapter 7 Jesus goes on to teach us about judging others v1-6, the door to the kingdom v7-12, the golden rule being in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you,.. (v12) the narrow gate to the kingdom and wide gate to destruction v13-14, true and false prophets and teachers v15-23, wise and foolish builders v24-29.]
So v33 of Chapter 6: “BUT Seek ye first” continues from Mt 6:v25 when Jesus talks to believers.
So secondly, Jesus is Not talking to unbelievers, but citizens, believers of the Kingdom of Heaven! Seeking the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of God - to get into it - is not what He is saying. Jesus is saying to the believers as Kingdom citizens, make the interests of God’s kingdom their priority. For instance:
Is WHAT I AM SAYING IS WHAT I AM DOING GOING TO BRING KINGDOM TO EARTH? Will IT ADVANCE THE KINGDOM, OR ME?
Because Jesus goes on in V33b and 34 SELF will be reassured: …and all these things will be given to YOU as well. Therefore DO NOT WORRY about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Trust God first.
Seek after (attempt to find, attempt or desire to obtain or achieve something, ask from someone) His kingdom and His righteousness
rather than worrying about anything through our level of conscious needs.
Those who are concerned and seek after their own thing completely MISS the KINGDOM and RIGHTEOUSNESS!
– Dress for the kingdom, eat for the kingdom, travel for the kingdom, worry only for the kingdom things to manifest! Thereby seek in both individual and corporate applications (corporate being the ecclesia in its representations in business marketplace, as an enterprise), the righteous ways of finding the kingdom of God.
ANXIETY is a care for the future, about tomorrow. And Jesus tells us not to worry about that, for it will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own, each day has enough sin to contend with, don’t heap more on yourselves that hasn’t already happened yet. Sin and evil will come regardless of what we do!
So we bank our treasure in the righteousness of the kingdom, in heaven, in God:
Spurgeon writes that...
When I had resolved to enter college, walking across Midsummer Common, just outside of Cambridge, revolving in my mind the joys of scholarship and the hope of being something in the world, that text came to my heart,
"Seekest thou great things for thyself? Seek them not" (Jer. 45:5)
"Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."
All was given up, everything was renounced, the finest prospects seemed to melt into thin air, merely on the strength of that text, believing that God would most certainly fulfill to me his promise if I could keep his precept.
God will always keep His word to the letter. Actually He will usually go beyond what the letter seems to mean. In this instance (cf "And the LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him" 1 Kings 5:12), while He gave Solomon wisdom, He also added to him riches and a thousand other things which did not appear in the compact.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you (Matt. 6:33).
SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God…It is important we find the KINGDOM first. Many of us are still trying to find ourselves, our identity, our call even before we have begun to DWELL in the KINGDOM. Many of us are caught in the NEVER-ENDING PIT OF HUMAN NEED.
This desire to know and complete ourselves is all consuming! How can we accept uncompleteness? This is how: By knowing we will never be complete without Christ, not until we have fullness and maturity in Him, not until we allow God to pull us out of our obsession with ourselves, and focus on Him, the Kingdom and His purpose for us.
For THE KEYS to spiritual government manifesting in world government, we can look to DANIEL and JOSEPH.
Daniel was so revered in exile for his intellect and stature that he entered the Babylonian court, and possible made a eunuch (eunuch’s are not born, they are created by castration). He interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams of the giant statue, the great tree, and the writing on the wall, all of which God moved to purport truth and governance, and bring forth the wisdom of His chosen ones. As the most wisest and trusted of the king’s men, Daniel interpreted as God orchestrated, even on to the Persian dynastic holding over Israel. And his interpretations were for governmental shift amid testing as were Daniel’s three companions. In the third year of Darius Daniel had prophetic visions, three interpreted by angels, that have sequenced with his future and our past events, and events unfolding today.
Joseph also had dreams that shifted his family station, influenced in governmental authority and afflicted nations in famine. Even though Joseph was reimprisoned for being a credible adulterer with Pophitar’s wife, he interpreted the dreams of the GOVERNMENT of the RULING AUTHORITY of the day, to the point of being lifted out of his low position to one of great authority. Also orchestrated by God, this type of influence, transformed nations. And God wants to do this TODAY, through His devoted ones!
Are we listening to the LORD?
Are we SEEKING His RIGHTEOUSNESS first?
Are we getting our eyes off our own needy selves, to see and hear what God is wanting to do, to SHIFT THE FLOORS OF NATIONS in Government, in ruling Authorities in RIGHTEOUSNESS and Power? Now is the hour.
