Jesus came preaching the gospel of the Kingdom. This was not about how many things we did wrong, but about restoring what sin destroyed and Satan stole.To many people “the gospel” only means the “good news” that we (mankind) can be born-again, and that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again from the dead, providing for us the way of salvation. While this is true, it is not the whole truth. With this incomplete concept of the gospel we are left with insufficient truth to overcome the enemy, and inadequate power to provide the witness our Lord intended. This so-called “traditional gospel message” that offers eternal life in heaven and escape from hell was not the main message proclaimed by Jesus and the first apostles. I know many who read that far will stop reading because they have not heard or do NOT believe where I am going with this.The gospel of the Bible is the gospel of the Kingdom, and is mainly about bringing heaven to earth. The Kingdom comes with its own power, its own provision and the supernatural ability to bring to pass whatever is promised or prophesied under the anointing of God. (see Isaiah 55:10-11 and Jeremiah 1:12)In other words, it comes with demonstration, producing miracles, which is something far above or beyond what is explainable by natural laws or understood by human logic. Furthermore, most of what Jesus taught or preached about the Kingdom could not be comprehended by the natural man, such as “the parable of the sower.” He called them “mysteries,” which is knowledge beyond human comprehension or intellectual searching. Humanity wants a living God. This love for the miraculous is not a mark of ignorance, but rather reveals man’s intense desire to reach the unseen God. People want to see God in action.
God’s purpose and plan from the very start was for man to have supernatural ability. He was created with the desire and demand for supernatural authority. Hear what it says about man from the beginning “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion.over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:28). We need power to fulfill this purpose. We need the supernatural to advance the Kingdom. Again, some think that education will take the place of the miraculous, and that the Church no longer needs the supernatural power of God. Hear my heart friends, “NO LEVEL OF EDUCATION WILL EVER ELIMINATE THE DESIRE OR THE DEMAND OR THE NEED FOR THE MIRACULOUS IN MAN.” If for no other reason … you’re not fighting an intellectual devil! Intellectualism becomes a laughing stock to the enemy. Nations have never been rescued from their sins and its consequences (e.g., deprivation) through philosophy or even medical missions. It takes power to dislodge Satan and his forces, because they are the ones behind every evil work.
