The Portability of the Kingdom of God. :) :) :)

The Portability of the Kingdom of God.

From the beginning of John the Baptist through to Jesus Christ the Son of God, the message they preached was “repent, for the KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND”

Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, REPENT: FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND. (KJV)

The word, “at HAND”, means, “NEAR, TO BRING NEAR AND OR HAS COME”

When Jesus healed by the power of the Holy Spirit Jesus said.

Mat 12:28 But if I am casting out demons by the Spirit of God, then THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS ARRIVED AMONG YOU. (NLT)

We have this thought as believers that the Kingdom of God is way out in outer space some where, and nowhere near where we are now. Actually, the Kingdom of God is in a fixed location, but its realm extends to wherever it's citizens live!! “Our citizenship is in Heaven......” (Php 3:20)

Every Kingdom has a realm to where it's King has a rule over. Within this Kingdom realm there is a city from where it's ruler rules from. Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, and he is the Lord of Lords, and from his Holy city he rules over all his realm. We know what the name of this city is, because he told us.

Psa 132:14 THIS IS MY REST FOR EVER: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

In the New Testament it is called, “Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem” (Heb 12:22)

When a man or women becomes a new creation by confessing Jesus Christ to be their Lord, they are translated (transferred) from the power (Kingdom) of darkness, into the Kingdom of (light) of his (God's) dear Son (Jesus Christ) (Col 1:12-13) They have become a new citizen of this heavenly Kingdom, and this is where they now live!!!

Every where these people go, they bring with them this Kingdom!!!!

Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, THE KINGDOM OF GOD COMETH NOT WITH OBSERVATION:
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU.

Even though the Kingdom of God is in a fixed location spiritually, it is also inside it's citizens, and every where they go, that Kingdom of God follows them and bring it's peace, joy and all of it's benefits that are available to the believer!!! When Jesus healed he was using the power of that Kingdom, and all the laws that govern that power, which was faith!!! The laws of faith backed up by the law of the Spirit of life which backs up the law of faith!!

Not only is Heaven portable, but Hell itself is also portable!!! What did God do to ALL the angels that sinned?

2 Peter 2:4 For IF GOD DID NOT SPARE ANGELS WHEN THEY SINNED, BUT CAST THEM INTO HELL and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;

Every single angel that sinned in the rebellion against God, which was one third of the angels of God, where cast down into Hell!!!! I am one of those kinds of Christian that actually believe the Word of
God when I read it, and not try to logically discount why this could not be true. How could Satan, and all of his minions be roaming this earth if they are in Hell? It is exactly, in the same way how the Church is sitting on the right hand of God in Christ in heaven, and yet we are roaming this earth too!!!

Hell is movable, and portable just like Heaven is.

Rev 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and HIS NAME THAT SAT ON HIM WAS DEATH, AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH HIM. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Hell follows death, and moves with it every where it goes!!! When Jesus said that the “GATES OF HELL (Matt 16:18) will not be able to over power the Church, he meant what he said, it was not a play
on words!! The citizens of Hell in the Kingdom of darkness always bring that darkness (Kingdom) with them!!

When the Devil comes after you, your family, your Church, your health, your job, your finances, and everything else not mentioned, they bring with them the gates of Hell to try to destroy you!!
We have total authority, and power over all the powers (kingdom) of darkness of this world. (Eph 6:10-12)

Greetings @Curtis
Not taking anything away just adding to it.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

The word "wiles" goes un-noticed by far to many believers. They think Hollywood devil with pitch fork and all so scary powerful.

As as you brought to Light, he has been defeated and stripped of his power BUT this does not say you can just forget about him.

Let's look at the word Wiles
Strategies, Schemes, Trickery and Deception.

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Imaginations are Thoughts
These can come with Feelings, Smell, Taste and Stir the emotions.

They can come with scriptures, after all it is written he comes as an angel of light and not ugly scary smelling like sulfer.

he is a master of deception and no man can stand against him intellectually but by the Word of God.
If you as in any one thinks they can tell a thought from him because your smart or have read the Bible, well your half defeated already.

Ephesians 6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Those fiery darts are Thoughts
he is after your words through your thoughts.

Because he needs your help to get at you.
1 Peter 5:8
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

Looking because he needs an open door and our words and actions will give him one. he knows this even if people don't believe it.

That's why there is so much confusion in the church about the devil and what is of God and What is of the devil. If
he can get believers blaming God for his stuff then your not looking at him and he slips by in the shadows and keeps believers in captivity and knocking pastors and ministries and getting the denominations fighting each other instead of fighting him.

We need not be afraid of our enemy the devil BUT we need to learn how to realize what is of him from What Is Of God.

Blessings and thank you @Curtis for this thread
