Covenant & Government Part 5

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say,
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 4:17 (NKJV)

 

Our focus this week for repentance of breaking covenant with the Lord in the area of government comes from Scriptures from the New Testament pertaining to the Kingdom of God.Please, keep in mind that the Hebrew word [H4951] translated as “government” means, “government, rule, dominion.”The first account of the Kingdom of Heaven mentioned in the New Testament comes from John the baptizer:

In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” (Matt 3:1-2).
Yeshua/Jesus reinforces the need to repent due to the Kingdom of Heaven being at hand. The Hebrew word [G3340] translated as repent means, “to change one’s mind, i.e. to repent to change one’s mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one’s past sins.” In order for us to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth as individuals and on the national level, we need to repent and change our way of thinking. Let us join together in repenting and changing the way we think and behave in order to align ourselves to the government, rule and dominion of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Government & Covenant Part 3

When we understand the Kingdom of God and live according to it as members of the Royal Priesthood, we are able to change the culture of our nation. Since we are a republic and are able to vote for our government representatives and laws, who we are as members of the Royal Priesthood will be reflected in how we vote.  When we bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth, the atmosphere and culture around us is influenced in like manner.

Our focus this week for repentance of breaking covenant with the Lord in the area of government comes from Scriptures pertaining to earthly kingdoms and nations and their response to covenant with the Lord and other nations. Keep in mind that the Hebrew word [H4951] translated as “government” means, “government, rule, dominion.”

Government & Covenant Part 2

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)

 

Scripture repeatedly speaks of the Kingdom of God in both the Old and New Testaments. In order to understand how we are to keep covenant with the Lord in the area of earthly governments, it is imperative we seek from the Word of the Lord how covenant with the Lord works pertaining to His Kingdom.Yeshua/Jesus bears the government on His shoulder. The Hebrew word [H4951] translated as “government” means, “rule, dominion, government.” Through the increase of His dominion, rule and government comes the increase of peace.This increase of peace/shalom needs to be looked at in context of the Kingdom, and the Kingdom from the concept of peace/shalom. We cannot understand the working and infrastructure of the Kingdom of God outside the construct of peace/shalom. Living in the Kingdom of God means to be in a covenant of peace with Him. Knowing this is vital to understanding the Kingdom of God and how to apply His Kingdom infrastructure to our government.

Government & Covenant Part 1

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
—Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)

 

Scripture repeatedly speaks of the Kingdom of God in both the Old and New Testaments. In order to understand how we are to keep covenant with the Lord in the area of Government on earth, it is imperative we seek from the Word of the Lord how covenant with the Lord works pertaining to His Kingdom.

Our journey of repentance of breaking covenant with the Lord in the area of Government begins with the Scripture Isaiah 9:6. Yeshua/Jesus bears the government on His shoulder. The Hebrew word [H4951] translated as “government” means, “rule, dominion, government.” Through the increase of His dominion, rule and government comes the increase of peace. Let us join together in prayer for the healing of our nation in the area of Government.
