Every believer is a citizen of Heaven once they get born again.  This citizenship goes with their spiritual birth certificate. 

Lots of times in the Church we teach only how to get into Heaven and we don’t go any further with the teaching of the Kingdom.  But Jesus went further in His teaching and we must also in order to operate in the Kingdom.  Jesus preached the operation of the government of Heaven, the laws of the Kingdom, Kingdom principles to use in everyday life.  So the Kingdom of Heaven is our government while on earth and we can use its laws and principles which are supernatural.

Many think they have to wait to go to Heaven to live in the Kingdom.  But the truth is, Jesus told us the Kingdom is here on the earth, within us, an invisible Kingdom and we are supposed to seek it first, seek its operation in our lives while on planet earth and Jesus demonstrated for us how to live in the Kingdom on earth.

In the Kingdom of God the Word of God is the truth and nothing but the truth about everything in our lives no matter what other evidence or facts there are that contradicts the truth of God’s Word about us.  Since this is the truth, we must recognize that all this other evidence or facts are “false evidence that appears to be real”.  I like to refer to this other evidence as “fact rather than truth”.

The truth of God’s Word is law in the realm of the Spirit.  Facts are of this realm.  Facts are a reality here on the earth but they are not the law of Heaven and the law of the Word of God.  Facts could be used in a court of law here on earth but not used in the Court of Heaven because they would contradict the truth of the Word of God. 

Here’s the danger of relying on the facts, it will produce what the Word of God told us carnal mindedness produces and that is death and destruction.  This world’s mindset is set on carnal thinking and what things look like and so it is need minded, scarcity minded, insufficient amount minded, not enough minded, running out minded, we can’t make it minded, don’t take but a little because we might not have enough to go around minded, paycheck minded, debt minded, deficit minded, bankrupt minded, etc. The Kingdom of God, of which we are to live out of while on this earth, on the other hand is abundance minded, more than enough minded, plenty to go around minded, increase more and more minded, seedtime and harvest minded, sowing and reaping minded.  Since this is the mindset of Kingdom living, the bible actually defines the Kingdom of God living as righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. KJV

Are you in need of some peace and joy?  Then you have been living outside of the Kingdom of God.  Are you need minded, provision minded?  Then you have not been Kingdom minded. Seeking the Kingdom operation means all things are added to you and you don’t have to worry any more about your needs being met as Jesus told us in Matt 6:33.

Matt 6:31-33 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. KJV

You must realize that whatever you believe is where you are going to end up.  The mindset that you have is where you are eventually going to end up. 

Prov 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: KJV

Think scarcity, insufficiency, not enough, which may be the facts, but the truth is we are going to end up with scarcity, insufficiency, and not enough.  See, what we focus on expands in our mind first and then it expands in our financial outcome, health outcome, family life outcome and so forth.

That’s why 3 John 2 tells us,

3 John 2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.KJV

Our soul (mind, will, emotions, intellect, reasoning, imagination) affects our emotions and attitude which will lead to wrong decisions and wrong actions which could lead us to scarcity, not enough and even bankruptcy.  Our focus affects our imagination which is crucial to our outcome whether it is financial or health for our imagination gives us a picture or blueprint of our outcome.

Now when we meditate the Word of God then we have an image of hope and faith.  Hope and faith can now work together because this bible hope gives faith the blueprint and faith can then give substance to that blueprint.   

Our imagination can give us a blueprint that is carnal which came from the flesh or reasoning or our imagination can give us a blueprint that came from being Spirit led.  If the blueprint of our imagination is carnal then we could see ourselves dying of a disease or see ourselves with financial lack and eventually have financial failure.

I hope you clearly see from 3 John 2 you will prosper in health, finances, etc. as your soul is prospering in your thinking, focus, emotions and imagination. This proves how powerful your soul realm is to your outcome.  Maybe you have considered other things to be why your outcome was this or that you didn’t want but the soul is the first place you must check out when things don’t turn out the way you want them to turn out.

Prov 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: KJV
