Loyalty to the King
In any Kingdom, the integrity of the rule is kept by loyalty of the subjects to the King
A house divided against itself will fall. Allegiance must be pledged to the king, to serve him with all your heart as a citizen of his kingdom. This is what keeps a kingdom running
You can see why the kingdom of Rehoboam fell, when ten tribes in Israel turned against him. However, he kept a kingdom of two tribes who were loyal
So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.
But as for the children of Israel which dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.
History also tells us of how great kingdoms fell, empires crashed.
In a kingdom, only one will is done, and that is the will of the king. The subjects are expected to conform to his will and do them.
Let’s take it to the Original Kingdom
Jesus prayed, saying
Thy will be done on earth…
…Not My will, but Yours
Our will is to do His will
However, as God is self-sufficient, His Kingdom, His Person is not subject to the fall human kingdoms have experienced. But it occurs to me that today, we are not experiencing the fullness of His Kingdom in our lives, and this is only because, the secrets of a Kingdom are known only by those who have proven themselves loyal to the King
Matt 6:33 tells us to show loyalty to Him by seeking His Kingdom first
The same chapter, verse 24 says
you can’t serve two masters, you can’t share the love. You’ll love one and hate the other, You’ll be loyal to one and despise the other
Let’s look at examples
I have found Dave… a man after My own Heart which shall fulfill all My will
Shall I hide from Abraham the stuff I’m doing?? Since He’ll be a great man and shall train his house in My way
These two guys found their way into God’s Heart such that God was committed to their persons
1Cor 2:9 says;
Eye has not seen
Ear has not heard
Man’s heart has not thought up
The stuff God has in plan for those who love Him and the Spirit reveals these stuff to us
God knows the guys that love Him.
If you have not proven your love to me, I won’t commit myself to you.
So it is with God, we take after Him (John 2:24)
Want to be friends with God??
Simple, ask Him out,
Only as you relate with Him, can you prove your loyalty.
It is not a function of trying to be holy or righteous, you already are.
So just talk to the Holy Spirit right now that you want to enter a relationship deeper than what you’ve ever known or experienced.
He’ll answer you, I trust Him.
He loves you beyond imagination. Just talk to Him
He is there, and you can access Him through the Word. Meditate on His Word, on the Scriptures above and tell Him to talk to you. He will.
I love you friend. The Lord bless you
