TEXT: 1KINGS 1:28- 38, Revelations 1:5-6 As priests we offer! As priests we serve!. We bring people from iniquity into righteousness! God has the mind of royalty for you and I. A king is a person of dominion and has authority over a particular territory, conferred via authority from where the individual hails YOU ARE A KING! There is a king in you! Let the king in you; take up your rightful status as you take up glorious things for the Lord By virtue of coming to the world and dying for our sins, Jesus has been made the king of kings and Lord of Lords. Revelations 1:5 Nobody can become the king before the washing! You need to be washed by the blood before kingship can be conferred on you 1 Peter 2:9, Proverbs 20:8 As a king, you sit upon the throne of judgment As a king, you can exercise dominion! As a king, you can rule and reign in your domain and dictate the terms of battle! With the office of the king, comes authority. You have to exercise it! Ecclesiastes 8:4 Where the word of a king is, there is power! A king does not run away from anyone but declares what to do. 3 things to consider Obtaining Royalty, Actualizing Royalty and Retaining Royalty… You can’t come to royalty without going through the washing. 1.OBTAINING ROYALTY: This comes by believing the declaration of the promise of the Lord We have come to salvation through faith and believing the promises of God. This belief, ushers in the royalty in you. By the sacrifice on the cross, we have been brought into the promise Where the word of the King is, there is power You are a king, and you have the ability to exercise your word of power! The power behind the word of God is alive! Declaration has come forth and the word will never go out of the mouth of God and come back void. 2. ACQUIRING ROYALTY: We should not quit or become a defeatist! Do not quit at the sight of every opposition 1 Kings 1:11. When we lack knowledge, we become defeated! You have the Holy Spirit within you to prompt you, tell you things that will happen even before they do To actualize your royalty, you need information and you can only get information from the one who knows all things! Let the Holy Spirit take the active position in your life Stand on the promises of God! The offer of royalty to you is irrevocable! You have not lost the promise of God. Activate your royalty and take what is yours. 3. RETAINING ROYALTY: when you get to the throne, you need to retain it Anywhere you step upon is your kingdom and you are expected to take authority 1 Kings 2:12-17. The devil never gives up! To retain your royalty, you must have “Abishag”(holiness) Vs 22 When the devil gets your holiness, he gets your throne! Don’t release your Abishag for anything. Hold on to your holiness Deal with your flesh! To retain the throne, take care of defilers and rebellion 1 Kings 2: 1-7 Rebellion in the kingdom will threaten Royalty Never tamper with rebellion because it tampers with the royalty Take care of generational curses. If there is a trend you have discovered in your lineage, deal with them unless they will undermine your royalty 1 Kings 2:8. Generational curses are grievous! When you don’t deal and identify curses, it will suck out the royalty in you. You need to Obtain, actualize and retain your royalty! There is a King in YOU!!! What shall we say to these things? There’s still cancer and so much disease. What shall we say to these things? There’s so much violence.
