Grace and Peace to you Bishop and to all of the esteemed members of Global Kingdom Govenors. We are adopted into the family of God, born again into what
is referred to by Nicodemus and Christ as the Kingdom of God. There must be a fundamental understanding that what we do for God is not just Word based but Spirit manifested. Not by our spirit but by His Spirit in us. Having the material gain without the righteousness of God or His Spirit would then not be a manifestation of His Spirit. Nor can this be the only tell tale sign of a relationship with God or an annointing. I am not saying that God wants us poor or destitue, but sober minded to these things. Now that we are faced with type of an economy and economic climate, what we now produce from our hearts, through our thoughts, words and deeds should give indication to this world and to heaven who our Father is, who birthed us and that the Kingdom of God is at hand.

I want to thank Bishop Lewter, Bishop Hobson, Apostle Hall and others for your participation in the discussion group. I would love to hear from many more of you to add to the dynamics. Both crude theology and flawed historical background has shaped a weak church society into rewriting church policy to suit its' own end. Since we have think in terms of Western Church philosphy and Latin scholastic thought, we have moved far away from the root of Eastern Orthodrox Church thought. The need to rationalize and intellectualize our concept of the Godhead led to 5 centuries of discussion that not only further confussed the issue, but started so much division in the body of Christ, we are still recovering.

Bishop Golphin, I so appreciate your ability to tie historical details to the contents of this thread and discussion. I fuilly agree that the church of the Early Christian Era and the Middle Ages were focused upon geo-political application of the term and idea of kingdom so that it became, for them, a physical expression.

I also believe that beyond the Middle Ages and the Renaissance Era, the concept of kingdom underwent an additional change during the Reformation Era and its subsequent Age of Enlightenment. The popularity of Deism during the Age of Enlightenment and the first Great Awakening were opposite ends of the same philosophical spectrum. I find it interesting that George Whitfield and his colleagues like the Wesley Brothers Johnathan Edwards anticipated a kingdom of physical proportions even though they insisted upon referring to it "spiritual terms".. It is not lost on me that the form of ecclesiastical government of which my denominational tradition is based, Baptist (congregationalism), seeks to impose the same form of governance upon its churches as it did its colonial states, republicanism.

With the absence of the Lord's return in the last 2000 years I think we all mostly agree that the dominant definition of kingdom today is apocalyptic. However, I do see trends and evidence of a mindset that seeks to define the kingdom in purely political terms.

When I hear members of the religious right" contend on single issue voting and suggest that there should be a continued resistance to President Elect Obama because of his stance of women having the right to choose and decide what is done with their bodies, it causes me to wonder just how far we have moved from the historic ideas of the Medival and Renaissance definitions of the "Old World.

Let me hear from you all soon

Grace and Peace Bishop,

Yes, it is your Hebrew Bishop. Always a pleasure Your Grace. Let us define "The Kingdom" as well as THE KING. Always remembering that, The WORD became flesh and the purpose of The WORD is, to put us in the Right relation with The King and His Kingdom.

Grace and Peace,

I want to thank all of you for joining this group. I am very anxious to really get into some conversations regarding Kingdom matters. In the first three centuries the church took a position of the instant return of Jesus Christ, so the kingdom was birthed in the hope that Christ would return and set up His earthly kingdom and overthrow Roman rule. By 432 AD, with the callapse of the Roman Empire and a need to institutionize the church, the kingdom became the new revived Roman Empire under Papal rule. By the 10th Century, the desire to reclaim Jerusalem from the Muslins and the desire of wealth, led the church to reclaim the kingdom by recaliming Jerusalem. Today the concept of the kingdom is ever evolving. It is being displayed as mega ministries, false doctrine, and poor exegesis of scripture. What is your understanding of where the kingdom of God is today? and if the church today is respresenting the kingdom, is this the concept that Jesus desired for us? I would love to hear your thoughts.
