Memorable Quotes and Verses:



In order for you to understand how to operate in The Kingdom of God, you need to understand How The Kingdom of God operates.

-Sebastien Richard



The Kingdom of God, His influence, His rulership, has now been restored within the hearts and lives of men who are serving the King to this day. And these men and women take back territory from the enemy, for the King, everyday by doing and fulfilling God’s will.



“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

– Hosea 4:6



“Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”   

– John [18:37]



“These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

– Revelation [17:14]



“The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all it contains, You have founded them.”

– Psalm [89:11]



How the citizens of a Kingdom behave reflects on the goodness and character of the King. It makes a kingdom’s glory shine before other people and other nations.



We, in the same way, are citizens of the Kingdom of God by birth. We were born into the Kingdom of God at our New Birth.
