Dr. Myles Munroe: The Kingdom: A Great Loss

The kingdom concept as a whole has been lost to contemporary human culture, especially in the Western world. In an attempt to create the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, man has opted to design his own forms of government. However, his experiments continue to fail: evil kingdoms, empires, dictators, communism, socialism, democracy, and the list goes on. The desire for righteous government burns in the heart of every human.  All of humanity is seeking the Kingdom even if we all don’t realize it.

Many historical kingdoms of the past contained several components that resemble the Kingdom of God and can be beneficial to us when studied. I was born in 1954 under a kingdom that at that time ruled the Bahamas and colonized our lives. This experience has made it easier for me to understand the Bible because it is a book about a King and a Kingdom.

The most powerful authority an individual can posses is Citizenship! The valuable privilege a State can extend to an individual is national Citizenship Status.

Citizenship is the key to empowerment of individuals and provides legitimate access to all the rights and privileges of legitimate constitutional governments. Citizenship is the source of the individual's personal Authority.

Citizenship is the essence of nationhood and the manifestation of the contract between the Government and the people of a nation. Consequently, citizenship is the legal covenant between the individual and the government. Only nations have the legal component of Citizenship.

The Message of the Bible is about a KINGDOM called HEAVEN. The message of Jesus Christ was about this nation called the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and its influence called the KINGDOM OF GOD. Kingdoms like all other nations do not have MEMBERS only CITIZENS.

Dr.Myles Munroe - Authority Turned Upside Down

Industrial nations fear it. Emerging nations hate it, and few understand it. The very word “authority” conjures up images of oppression and abuse. There are many benefits and opportunities connected to authority that most people have never dreamed of. I am therefore coming to believe that the greatest problem in our world today is a basic disrespect for authority with an accompanying disregard and dismissal of it.

The fundamental reason for this problem is that most people harbor basic, false ideas of the nature of authority. I have discovered over the years that there is a great amount of confusion and understanding concerning authority. Confusion comes first—people don’t understand what it is—and misunderstanding is its result: they aren’t aware of its personal benefits or its value to their social institutions and nations as a whole. Because we misunderstand what authority really is—and because this misunderstanding leads to abuse of authority and its consequences—we are always somewhat suspicious of it.

  Horace Walpole, an English historian and novelist, once said, “Men are often capable of greater things than they perform. They are sent into the world with bills of credit, and seldom draw to their full extent.” What he is trying to communicate is that humans come into the world with a tremendous amount of potential, but very few individuals ever really draw on the true potential that they have. How do you develop your full potential?

The potential of an entity is determined by the demands made on it by the one who created it. Your potential is not determined by who you are or by what you look like. Rather your potential is determined by what is being demanded of you by the One who made you. You may not look smart. However, if the Creator who made you demands superior intelligence of you, then smartness is somewhere on the inside of you.

  Potential is only manifested when you make demands on it. Therefore, the key to your potential is your willingness to work. In essence, it is not the amount of resources you have that matters the most—it is what you do with those resources. Potential without work is poverty. The Greek word for work is “ergon.” Ergon is the base word for energy, which also means to activate something or to operate something. Potential is what you have, but work is what you do with what you have. Therefore, how much potential you have is not nearly as important as what you do with that potential. You have unlimited potential in God (Phil. 4:13). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, but will you?

Potential without work is poverty. Many are poor not because the government is holding them back or because of the socioeconomic situation in which they were born. They are poor because they are not activating what they have. The inventor Thomas Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” Potential is a dream that you have to wake up to do.
