Jesus came and established the Kingdom. He said, “Repent, the Kingdom is at hand.”
He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom as seen in Matthew 24:14 when He said, “…this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
And, He implanted within His first disciples a Kingdom DNA and a Kingdom perspective that gave them the motivation to take this Gospel to every part of the known world at that time.
The Early Church and disciples of Jesus had a Kingdom mindset and not a Church mindset. In three short years they were prepared by Jesus to continue His work and establish the Kingdom within which then the Church Jesus had promised to build could grow healthy and strong.
Today, Jesus is implanting His Kingdom DNA within believers who are hungry for more and not willing to simply continue what we have experienced as “church.’ He is looking for those who hunger and thirst for more. And when He finds those who have an inner ‘divine discontent,’ He imparts a fresh understanding of the Kingdom.
In this teaching Ralph shares a New Year’s message entitled “You Can Do It - Yes You Can Can.”
Many of us, as believers, have “chains on the brain” and our worst enemy is ourselves. We allow our past, our current situation, circumstances, even our fears and doubts to limit who we are and what we accomplish in life - personally and for the Kingdom.
Ralph shares several personal stories to illustrate the point that ‘you can do it.’ As well, we will be looking at the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus and her move into a fantastic and meaningful future despite the personal cost. And, we will hear from Maysoon Zayid, a handicapped Palestinian woman and how she learned that she can.
