In the Sonship, the Father went after us, showed that He loves us, healed us, He saved us, He helped us, He blesses us and as I said, in the Church Age this is all that they know and this is all that they want because if they wanted what I have today in the revelation of the Kingship of the Son, I would not be here today. They would have been talking about it and we have heard about this message a long time ago and we would be listening to them and receiving this kind of revelation from them.
But they did not so, that’s why I am here today to talk about it so that in the Church Age they remained like that and they remained in their limited knowledge of the Son, being compassionate, being full of love and mercy and it’s always the human beings who always receive Him. They are always the focus of the Father’s love, salvation, miracles and everything.
So men became so self-centered that even in salvation, he wanted to be catered only by the good things: by kindness and goodness coming from the Father Almighty, but salvation is more than that.
In salvation, once we have received the unconditional love of the Father Almighty, where would He bring us? He would bring us into his Kingdom. That is where everybody wanted to go. That’s why they are serving the Father, into His Kingdom. When you are in the Kingdom you’ll find out as we are right now that He is not only a Son to save us, to cater to us, to always follow us, to always go after us, to always bless us.
When He brings us into His own Kingdom, and we become Kingdom Citizens free of the serpent seed then we realize He also our King. Then a brand new relationship will ensue. A brand new relationship, a new level of relationship will happen because it will be us following Him, not Him following us, (that is the Sonship.) But in the Kingship, it will be us following Him, obeying Him. That’s why He said, we love Him because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
How did He love us? He loved us unconditionally. ‘Unconditionally’ means He suffered shame, pain, loneliness, rejection and ultimately, the ultimate sacrifice of being killed, crucified on the cross but He did not complain. He did not say a thing. That is how deep is the love of the Father is for us.
He’s no longer in His ministry as the Son. He now is in His ministry as the King. He will no longer be crucified. He will no longer be put to shame. He will no longer do that. He now sits in His throne as the King and we are in His Kingdom and a brand new level of relationship is going to happen.
This is where the Church Age people cannot come in because they did not receive it from Him. I received it, and because of this, I am here telling you about it.
When we begin a brand new relationship with the Father, we will know Him not as a Son right now but as King. And that verse says, we love Him because He first loved us His love is unconditional; He suffered for us, was put to shame and everything, for us. Now it is our turn to love Him.
What does the Father expect of us when we love Him? He expects the same, unconditional love for Him. That’s why right now in the Kingdom Nation, we treat Him as our King. We are not always telling Him “Lord what can you do for me? Please help me, please bless me, please heal me”.
We tell Him “Father, You have done everything for us and we cannot ask for more”. Now, it’s our turn to tell Him, “Father, what can we do for You? We’ll obey You, we’ll suffer for You, we will sacrifice for You, we will go all the way with You. If it needs be, we will give the ultimate sacrifice for You”.
He expects no less; that is the unconditional love we will give our Father.
That’s why, we go through a fire; we go through a fire to test our love, how deep it is, when it is not deep as what He has for us then we don’t qualify to become sons and daughters. That’s why He said, ‘he that loveth father, mother, brother, sister, wives, husband, lands, and houses more than Me is not worthy of Me.’ (Matthew 10:37) He’s talking here as the King, he’s not talking here as the Son.
When He talks as the Son, “I love you, I will save you, I will heal you, I will bless you, I will do miracles for you. Don’t worry.” That’s the Son, but in the Kingship, He would say what? “Obey me, follow me” because in the end, that is what counts. Your relationship to Him should grow. You have to know Him as the King, manifested in His Appointed Son.
In the end, that is what will count because, when we all human beings face Him, including those in Church Age, what will the Father require? He will tell all of those that will face Him: “Not all that say unto me Lord, Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 7:21) That’s why in the Kingdom Nation we teach obedience to the will of the Father Almighty. It’s a brand new level of relationship. We don’t know Him here as only the Son. That’s over. If you don’t know Him you have to know Him and you have to learn about Him as the King.
As the King, He demands from us. As the Son, you can demand from Him. But that’s over. That’s why we’re here, we are already saved. As the King, He demands from us. What does He demand from us? No less than ‘love Him with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, with all your spirit, with all your strength.’ (Mark 12:30)
So this is a brand new level of relationship. We know Him as a King. As the King, He holds the terms and conditions of that relationship. As the Son, it’s them who always holds the terms and conditions of the relationship. “Lord, as long as You bless me, I’ll follow You. Lord, as long as You heal me, I will serve You. Lord, as long as You perform miracles for me and answer my prayers, I will be loyal to You.” As long as I’m holding the terms and conditions, and I set them, it’s in my hands, Lord, it’s not in Your hands. As long as you bless me, I’ll follow.”
So that’s why when the Father fails to bless them, they grow cold on their faith. They come to the worship center and they are very weak. They cannot praise Him as they praise Him before. They are always waiting for the Father to bless them.
In the Kingdom Nation, we have a new level of relationship, you don’t wait for the Father to do that: to always expect to bless you. In fact, He will try you. In fact, He will put you through the fire. In fact, when you ask for blessing, He will not bless you, and He will do that on purpose. ‘What if I will not bless you, will you serve me?’
Job knew that kind of relationship when he was tested. The Father left Him in the hands of his tormentor, Satan Lucifer the Devil. All the blessings were even taken away and no blessings came, instead all bad luck came to Job. One by one servants would report: ‘you lost this, Job; you lost this cattle; you lost all of your sheep; you lost all of your children; you lost everything including you right now, Job, you are sick.’ Satan Lucifer the Devil came into the wife and the wife said, “Job are you still serving God? Why not curse Him and die?”
That’s the spirit of the Church Age. If the Father doesn’t bless them, they leave Him alone. Kingdom people are strong because they have gone through the fire. Their love to the Father was put to the test. Their love to the Father was put to trial. Their love to the Father was put to the fire if it is genuine or not. We will not question Him, how He loved us because He went through fire and not only fire, death. And He proved that He loved us.
He expects no less from us. Do we love Him? Greater love hath no man than this … (John 15:13) That you die for Him, that you offer everything for Him, even the loss of everything because you have to prove your love to Him.
Now He is exercising this level of relationship with us, which is Kingship. Gone are the days when you say, ‘He is my Savior’ because He already saved you. You are already His sons and daughters. Now He is teaching us the relationship of us to Him being a King. The Father holds the terms and conditions of that relationship. What did He say in Romans 11:22?
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
He’s not talking here as the Son, he’s talking here as the King. He’s very demanding. As King, He’s very demanding. As King, He can do what He pleases and you cannot question Him.
Do you trust Him? Why do we treat Him as the King? Because we trusted Him. Why? Because He’s a good King. He’s not an evil King, He’s a good King. He gives us more than what we ask for. What did He say? Remember the goodness and severity of God.
Talking about the severity of God, severity is to those who fall. When you fall and that is your choice, you will taste of the severity of God. Severity means ‘He will cut you off without mercy. You will go to the destruction of your soul to hell without mercy.’
He is our King that’s why we serve Him with trembling and fear. We serve God with trembling and fear. (Philippians 2:12) He said, Remember the goodness and the severity of God, severity to those who fall and goodness if, you continue in my goodness. What does ‘if’ mean? “If” is conditional and He now holds the terms and conditions of your relationship between you and Him. If you continue in His goodness, the Father will continue, that means, ‘if you are good to me, I’ll be good to you.’
In the Church Age, they always tell the Lord “if You’re good to me, Lord, I’ll be good to You. If You’re kind to me, Lord, I’ll follow You. If you heal me, Lord, I’ll serve You. But if not, Lord, I’ll grow weak. I’ll leave you alone, I’ll backslide.” Then revival, revival.
In the Kingdom Nation, we do not treat Him only as the Son and Savior; He’s our King. He holds all the conditions and the terms of that relationship. You’re growing deeper and higher in that relationship. Children and sons and daughters, as long as you’re good in continuing to the goodness of the Father, He will be good to you. If you decide to go the other way around, you will fall and you will feel and taste of the severity of the Father, the King.
When He was teaching me about his Kingship, in my five years in Tamayong, He treated me not royally all the time. Sometimes, He talks to me as the Son, and He’s my Savior. He would tell me, “I love you, my Son,” and my tears would begin to flow because I love that. But I was puzzled sometimes also because there were times the Father treated me like a slave. The Father treated me like I’m dirt. The Father treated me like I’m a criminal. What’s happening?
When I did not understand why He is treating me like dirt, like I am a criminal, what was my reaction? “Father, do whatever You want. It is You, I will respect You, I will love You, I will not digress from anything You have taught me. I will follow you. If you treat me like a doormat, a rag, dirt, if you treat me like I am just a fly, I don’t care as long as I stay in your house, I’m saved. It is You doing this. It is Your will, Your will be done, I’ll not question it, I’ll not complain.”
If I got offended when He treated me like that, then He is not the King— I am still the King. And that is what is bad about us; that is the enemy of God in us. We became the King; we became the God through the serpent seed. God cannot exercise his Kingship over us or else we get offended and we leave Him alone. And Satan Lucifer the Devil is happy because that is the rebellion that happened in heaven. And we are not saved yet as long as we only know Him as the Son or the savior.
We have to go to another higher and deeper level of relationship, he is also our King. And as King we let Him be our King, we don’t question Him, we don’t complain about our relationship with Him because He’s the one holding all the terms and conditions of it. Agree?
Welcome to the Kingship of the Father. Familiarize yourself with the Kingship of the Son. Let us serve Him with trembling and fear.
In the Church Age they don’t know that that’s why they would say, ‘Why would I tremble before Him if He’s love?’ And then they convert the Father’s divine love into something carnal. And they thought that carnality and carnal love is the Father’s love. No, it’s not. I will convert all Philio and Eros type of love to become divine love because divine love stays forever while Philio and Eros love flies out of the wind. Especially Eros love, it flies out of the wind the Philio love is the same.
Eros love is your love towards the opposite sex. I felt I am madly in love, I cannot sleep I’m madly in love. Then after you have satisfied your being madly in love you would say I’m madly out of love. Let’s have a divorce. There goes the divorce, there goes the separation. It’s the same with Philio. I love my Son, I love my mother. Up to where? Sometimes it’s not even up to the grave. It flies out of the window at the same time.
But divine love? It’s forever. The love of the Father is forever and ever and ever. He loves us in spite of who we are, and that’s why we love Him not only of who He is but we love Him and respect Him and tremble before Him as our King. It’s not a slavish fear though. It is a heavenly only fear of not doing what pleases the King.
Work out your own salvation with trembling and fear. The Church Age people don’t like that because they said, ‘We are saved by grace, Pastor. We raised our hands. That’s enough. He’s our Savior.’ That’s why they are weak we are strong. Why are we strong? We went through the fire, to test and try our love. You have to know Him as your King and as your King you can withstand all the trials and test because that is the unconditional love we offer to Him because that is how he offered it to us and invested in us. So if I die for Him and suffer for Him and my enemy will treat me as rag for Him, so be it. If Pastor will treat me like a doormat anything like that I was used to treat you like that, what will you do? You get offended? If you get offended, you are emotionally weak, your love is not true. It will be subjected to the fire and if it burns your love, it is not true. So from now on, it is not us who will decide or dictate upon the Father, it’s His will that will command us on what to do and we do it with utmost reverence love devotion and respect.
Inside the Kingdom Nation, which is the Father’s rule upon the earth, we are subject to spiritual laws. We seek first His will because we want to please Him; we obey His will because His righteousness is in the Kingdom and that is first and foremost. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. (Matthew 6:33) That is the rule of the Father.
‘Seek ye first,’ you’ll be the one to seek now, not Him seeking you, not Him finding you. We are the one seeking Him now.
Obedience to the will of the Father is already the first step of knowing the King. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His rule and His righteousness. What is His righteousness? Obedience to His will. That is the Father’s righteousness. As sons and daughters, now, our endeavor, our consideration is for the Father. We always ask Him “Father, what is right according to You?” not ‘what is right according to me.’
