The second step to get into the unexplored territory of the kingdom of God is to become a son of God.
2. THE SON OF GOD
How does man become a son of God?
That is when he believes in Jesus Christ and repents from his sins.
Try to imagine that you are the son of God, the Creator of heaven and earth… this makes you dangerous and untouchable because your Dad is the Supreme Authority!
No one and nothing could touch you without His permission. Even your very hair is accounted for. This means that no one could touch the least part of your body, like the hair, without His permission!
Your Father is the owner of the whole universe - He is the CEO of the Kingdom, the Son, Jesus Christ is the COO and we, the sons, are the managers of the Kingdom (the sons are the ones running the family business).
The Son made us “sons” by redeeming and restoring us into His Kingdom. The Son redeemed the sons in order for them to liberate the whole creation. That is the task of man, who is the son. Adam, the first son, lost the Kingdom when he fell into sin in the garden but the Son, Jesus Christ, regained the Kingdom in the same garden: Gethsemane. Gethsemane means “get same man”! So when the Son regained this Kingdom, He was given all authority in heaven and on earth. And that authority, He shared it with the sons. As the bible says…
Mat 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Mat 28:19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Mat 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The Son is the perfect image of the Father while the son (man) is the image of the Son. So now, man has a relationship again with God the Father. When man fell into sin through Adam, man became the son of the devil. But this time, he is the son of God again through Jesus Christ. This makes life exciting! Exciting means you are free from worries, struggles and most of all free from the power of the enemy.
So when you approach God, you approach Him as your Daddy. This is your direct access to the King of the universe, as a son. If you have problems in life, you can easily share it to Him because He is your Father. You can share to Him even your emotions or anything that concerns you.
You are not only a son, but also you are a co-heir with the Son, which means everything the Son owns, you own it also. The Son owns the whole universe. Imagine the whole universe or the unexplored territory… that is what you own! Sometimes your life is so boring because you don’t know this truth; you don’t know that you are a son of the living God; you don’t know that you belong to the royal family of the King of the whole universe.
The main business of the sons is dominion. It means, they are the controller of the planet earth. As the bible states…
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Gen 1:26)
The sons are the controller of every circumstance in life, controller of nature on earth, and controller of every creation on earth. We, the sons, are in the best and most exciting business here on earth. You don’t have to worry for your provision if you are in the business. Everything is provided by the Father – the CEO, even your wants!
