WHAT’S THE ANSWER?
REALLY difficult chart to fill out on pp. 96 and 97!! But, the point is well worth your time. I would like to make it easier for you, though. First of all the point of all these passages is to understand how literally you are the daughter of the King of Kings and how much that matters.
I’m not going to tell you whether to apply it literally or not, this is something you have to challenge yourself to do.
Matthew 11:11 Although John was considered the greatest prophet, he was still less than any future believer. The Kingdom of God is in our hearts (if we have surrendered our lives to Jesus) because of the power of the Holy Spirit. On God’s eternal scale, this bumps us up to royal priesthood.
Matthew 13:11-12 I have spiritual knowledge that others don’t have.
Luke 17:20-21 The Kingdom of God can’t be found by obeying rules because it is the power of the Holy Spirit in your heart.
1 Corinthians 4:20 The Kingdom of God isn’t found in talking about scripture but in the change that comes when the Spirit gives supernatural power to do what only God can do.
1 Peter 2:9 I am called out of spiritual darkness to be holy, chosen, and belonging to God. God has already done this for me in Christ Jesus.
Revelation 1:6 I am loved by God and free from sin!
Revelation 5:9-10 We are a kingdom of priests (holy and with direct access to our Holy God). And we will literally reign and rule over the earth during the millenium (over people born during the millenium who are not yet believers).
WHAT’S THE POINT?
This heavenly perspective can help us adjust our priorities and give us the confidence to be strong women. Whether you believer it or not, princess, God literally sees you has royal. More so even than Queen Esther because we have the Kingdom of God in our hearts.
