» Must the Sons of God Also Suffer Because Jesus Suffered?
The entire creation of God is patiently waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. Sons of God are created to walk, talk, and act like their Father, the Father of their spirits. Those that have been filled with His Spirit who went ahead of us manifested Kingdom power.
According to the Bible, when John the Baptist came on the scene his message was simply: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” – Matthew 3:2. He was busy baptizing people in the River Jordan as he admonished his listeners to repent because of the Kingdom of heaven that was at hand. Subsequently, when Jesus came to him to be baptized, John said “Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29) and he baptized Jesus. Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit, and was led into the desert to be tempted by the devil for forty days and forty nights.
Jesus came back out of the desert after the temptations, in the power of the Holy Spirit, walked into the synagogue, opened the Book and read from Isaiah 61: “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me” (Luke 4:18). And in that power he started preaching: “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” – Matthew 4:17. He preached the exact same message that John the Baptist preached. There was no difference in their messages.
“And Jesus summoned to Him His twelve disciples and gave them power and authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure all kinds of disease and all kinds of weakness and infirmity.” Here, we learn that Jesus called the twelve disciples and gave them all authority and power, over all devils, all sickness, and all weakness and infirmities. Now, we can cure any sick person, we can cast out any demons.
Verse 7: “And as you go, preach saying ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” Jesus gave the disciples the same message that He and John the Baptist preached. They were to preach the good news that the Kingdom of heaven was at hand. But what was the evidence that their message was true?
Verse 8: “Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons.” The proof was going to be in the manifestation of kingdom power through them. The manifestation of the sons of God was mandatory! Jesus told them and by extension us who believe, to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and drive out demons. What a radical instruction this was!
He did not ask them to go and pray that perhaps God would do all these things. He commanded them to perform these acts. He commanded them to go forth and manifest the power of the Kingdom of God on the earth.
Many sons of God are not seeing the miraculous results they are praying for. This is precisely because they are not taking their authority and commanding God’s power. They are passively asking God to do what He has already commanded them to do.
God is the Healer! But, God has placed His healing power under our authority, and it is up to us to release it. If the sons of God do not take their authority and become commanders instead of beggars, God’s power will not be released through them. Our minds must be radically renewed in this area. The manifestation of the sons of God is non-negotiable.
1 Corinthians 4:20:
“The kingdom of heaven is not in words but the kingdom is in power.” The disciples were to announce the arrival of the Kingdom of heaven. However, the kingdom of heaven is not in words only. The kingdom of heaven is in power! The kingdom of God is all authority, all power. We are to heal all the sick, cleanse all the lepers, raise the dead, and preach that the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
So, Apostle Paul did not want to know about the speech of the Corinthian church. He desired to see their power. This was the only proof he desired to ascertain their position in the Kingdom of God. He was a certified evidence of the manifest sons of God.
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Nicodemus recognized the presence of God in the life of Jesus by the miracles He did. He talked about miracles because, to him, they proved that Jesus was operating the power of the Kingdom of God. Jesus was approved of God by signs and wonders and miracles – Acts 2:22. Miracles are evidence of the kingdom. They show that God is with you! They validate your sonship of the Kingdom of God.
It was the miracles that drew Nicodemus to Jesus! Jesus told him that to know and see the kingdom – the power, the miracles – one thing was required of him and that is, to be born again. Seeing the Kingdom is different from entering into it. Many people have seen the Kingdom of God in manifestation but they have not entered into that manifestation. They are not able to operate in that power. They are in the Church and waiting to go to heaven. They have never tasted the kingdom. The kingdom is authority and power over sickness, disease, demons, and devils. If you are born again and you have not tasted that, then you are just sitting in church waiting to go to heaven. Is that all that you desire?
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The gospel we are to preach is “this gospel of the Kingdom”. It is not just “this gospel”. If the Kingdom of God is about power then this gospel of the Kingdom becomes this gospel of power – signs, wonders, and miracles. You are anointed to preach the gospel of the kingdom, the gospel of power. That is why it is good news!
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power and He went about doing “good” by healing all that were oppressed of the devil. The devil is the oppressor but Jesus is the deliverer. Then Jesus announced that those that believe and trust in Him can do the same works that He did and even greater works. The world is expecting greater works from us. May God grant you a “greater works anointing today in Jesus name.
It’s time to get filled with the Holy Spirit! It’s time to get power from on high. And as you get power from on high, you must go and preach that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The anointing comes with power and it is for the manifestation of the sons of God, the sons of the Kingdom of God.
