There are dimensions in the kingdom of God. Ephesians 3v17; “and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love “. When we know the dimensions of love which is the kingdom dimension, we are full with fullness of Christ. There are dimensions of the kingdom of God - the divine levels of God’s spirit and how He wants us to function in the kingdom. The dimensions of the kingdom of God are the dimension of love. And the dimension of love, we don’t know; the word of God reveals it to us.
There are four dimension in the kingdom of God:
1) Salvation Dimension: In this dimension, you experience change and that change is in the first installment. There is another change called “Transformation” and that is the result of the first payment. Romans 1v16-17; “For I am not ashamed of the gospel [a]of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”” You cannot live by security and faith at the same time. You can only live with faith or with security. Security here refers to human security like settling your daughter or son etc. Teach your children to live by faith. Let whatever security you have for them be an added advantage for them.. Best way to teach your children to live by faith is to live by faith before them. Apostle Edmonds shared his experience that his father Joseph Owhorode was a wealthy man but before he passed away he lost his wealth. And during those days he lived by faith. He showed how to live by faith, but Apostle Edmonds did not get it. He was still in the hangover of his father’s wealth. Then he met Pastor Edafe who was his closest friend before marriage. Pas. Edafe lived a beautiful life of faith but Pas. Edmonds still didn’t see. He did not accept that way of life – faith life. Then his wife came who was again a woman of faith and Pas. Edmonds had to change.
When you trust in God, you don’t trust in man at the same time. If you do, situation will divide it. When God shows you what to change and you don’t change, situation will come and force you to change. If you are not walking with God, situation will change you. If you are walking with God, situation will still change you, if you don’t change. Situation change is chief. Everybody gets it. But individual implementation of changes is very productive and inspiring. When you channel your life towards a course which you believe God has called you to do, that is a better change than situation change. Every step you jump over is waiting for you in the future. Everything you should change and you didn’t change is waiting for you in the future.
One of the aspects of change happens in this first dimension. God changes your record spiritually. For e.g. Sinner no more - justified, cursed no more - free. Sick no more – healed. This is God’s work. That’s where grace reckons us joint-heirs, justified etc. Immediately after you accept Christ Jesus, you are free.
The most difficult work on the earth is the ministry work. It’s not because of hardship. Hardship is in every work. It is because of the prescription. God has prescription in the ministry. Ministry is not to be done anyhow. If you don’t follow the prescription, you are doing your ministry and not His ministry. If there is anything that you can’t give away, then that is your god. For eg. It could be your child or spouse, finances, ministry etc. And that is another dimension of idolatry. That is not allowed. You must be free. Serve the Lord freely
2) Transformation Dimension: This dimension causes you to be what He has done for you. He changed our records. So, now our lives on earth should reflect the record which He gave us. The first change (salvation dimension) is deposit but this change is vitality. It is a personal walk with God. We reflect His ‘will in heaven’ on earth. That is why in 2 Cor 3v18, the scripture says behold and change. This level works with your co-operation.
3) Participation: Any church you are not participating, one dimension of kingdom of God you are not putting to work. It is beyond volunteering or being a staff. You have to participate (2 Peter 1v2).
4) Senior Representatives: It means to be a living proof. In 2 Cor 5v19, the scripture says we are God’s ambassadors. God intended you to finish all these four dimensions before you leave the earth. How can you judge angels if you are in the first dimension? When you understand these dimensions of the kingdom of God, you will carry yourself the way a senior representative carry. Senior representatives don’t speak their opinions. They speak the kingdom stand.
