Are you building the Kingdom, or escaping it?

Building the Kingdom, Instead of Escaping from It!
by Jean Mulquin

“When Jesus got word that John had been arrested, he returned to Galilee. He moved from his hometown, Nazareth, to the lakeside village Capernaum, nestled at the base of the Zebulun and Naphtali hills. This move completed Isaiah’s sermon:

Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali,
    road to the sea, over Jordan,
    Galilee, crossroads for the nations.
People sitting out their lives in the dark
    saw a huge light;
Sitting in that dark, dark country of death,
    they watched the sun come up.

This Isaiah-prophesied sermon came to life in Galilee the moment Jesus started preaching. He picked up where John left off: ‘Change your life. God’s kingdom is here.'” Matthew 4:12-17 (MSG)

I remember in the late 70’s and early 80’s, I was reading voraciously about the soon coming rapture. I was convinced that we believers would be raised up to meet Jesus in the air and we would be spared the impending agony of the seven-year tribulation. When my two boys began studying scripture, they were convinced that we would not have it so easy as to miss out on that period of hell here on earth.  They did not like the way people used that theology as a “cop out” and thought it hurt the body of Christ. We would have quite the heated debates on this subject.

Then, (especially after meeting Katie), I began to realize that I was already part of God’s kingdom here on earth, and that I had a lot of work to do, so that more hurting people could be brought into God’s kingdom with me.  God began to change my heart, and I no longer feared the future, or thought about getting out of here. Each day became precious and full of promise, as I began to see God’s call on my life and how BIG it was. Now, I live in the moment and do my best to make those moments count. I believe in a victorious view of our future, as the bride of Christ, and believe this world is a better place because of Christ’s kingdom having been established on it. I’m not certain how the end will unfold, but I know I will be ready for whatever comes.

Are you waiting patiently to be taken out of this mess of a world, or are you living your life as though each moment matters?

Do you know what your purpose is in helping to build the Kingdom of God?

If not, share with us what is stopping you from finding out what that might be below.

Remember, exposing the lie from the enemy trying to deter you from your kingdom destiny is the first step to moving towards it!

    I’m writing today to ask for prayers for my back. There are so many things I want to do for the kingdom and my back has me restricted. I take communion daily and have gone to the courts of heaven. I’m believing in my back being totally healed after 15 years of being a mess. In Jesus name. Katie I love and appreciate you and your ministry so so very much! God bless and much love!
    Sincerely through Christ Jesus,
    Cheri Meyers

    Katie, I just love your revelations and sharp spiritual insight. I have been reading your words since Sid Roth hosted you I think it was back in 2015.
    I have been serving the Lord in Italy for the last few years, doing whatever I could lend my hand to, But in doing that, moved some 20 times in the past 40 months, living out of suitcases and not being able to settle anywhere. I am now so tired and really needing to come apart and rest awhile, to have a home and somewhere to come back to, would really appreciate your prayers, thank you and may Jesus continue to shine down upon you as you prosper in Him..

    I have been crying out to know my purpose. I just don’t know how to know. And, I am confused about knowing His will. I feel stuck and am trying to move forward, I just don’t know what direction to go and how to even start. My heart has been ministry, but I don’t know how to get there. I am frustrated and could use prayer and guidance.

    I feel like that bozo pop up clown that we had as kids. Every time it pops back up you smack it again. Im getting slapped but the good news is, I keep getring back up. I am not so patiently anymore waiting on my breakthrough for healing. I did do a conference this last weekend in spite of it though and a healing conference no less, but in the midst my dog died. Holy cow! Throwing a white flag up!

    I just feel there is something more than what is being given to us by our pastors and am tired of Gospel without power am tired of the way poor are not being taken care of the sick and the needy, I have had several dreams about me being in Healing ministry making it difficult cause I feel I have mission to accomplish but I don’t know from where to start but I cannot help but will for the sick and the poor who are coming to churches daily but there is no help for them, Margie from Mombasa Kenya

    I dont know what my purpose is in the led exactly, just what I feel. I had a prophesy a few months back that my path He has led me has a destination that is hidden behind tree’s so I cannot see it yet but it is good. It confirms what the Lord has said to me already. I just keep pressing into Him and standing in faith as I intercede for me and my family and others until more is clear to me. It does bother me that I dont remember dreams or see angelic encounters but trusting God in this too.
