Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities May 24 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
And Today the Topic is: ADVANCING THE KINGDOM
- The Rhapsody of Realities for May 24 2023 written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, discusses the topic of advancing the Kingdom of God. The key message is the distinction between the Kingdom of God, which refers to God’s universal dominion, and the Kingdom of heaven, which pertains to Jesus Christ’s messianic reign on earth. The today’s devotional emphasizes the role of believers in expanding the Kingdom of God on earth, urging them to prioritize this mission and impact their world with the Gospel. The believer is encouraged to devote their time, efforts, and resources to further the Gospel and ensure God’s Word prevails in their city, region, country, and the world.
Today’s Message for Rhapsody of Realities
Pastor Chris is saying to us: Advancing The Kingdom and our opening scripture comes from the Book of Matthew 6:13 (KJV) and it says:
…For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen
In the concluding part of the format of prayer Jesus gave to His disciples, He taught them to say, “Thine is the Kingdom.” He was referring to the Kingdom of God.But in St. Mathew’s gospel, there’s another expression “the Kingdom of heaven,” which, though interchangeably used with the Kingdom of God, is different.
While the Kingdom of God refers to the rulership or dominion of God, which transcends territories and is universal, the Kingdom of heaven is applied particularly in connection to the Messiah, Jesus Christ, and His messianic reign. It’s that part of the Kingdom of God that’s established in the earth and is headed by Jesus
The vision of the Kingdom of heaven is the establishment and expansion of the Kingdom of God in the earth; it’s the work of Jesus Christ, of which we, the Church, are a vital part. It’s important for us to know our role. Each one of us actually has a responsibility, first, to see to the expansion of the Kingdom of God, because we belong in that Kingdom: “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

The Lord’s injunction for us to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness calls for every one of us to reappraise our priorities and walk accordingly. Your ultimate desire should be that the Kingdom is advancing through you as you impact your world with the Gospel.
Devote your time, efforts and resources to the furtherance of the Gospel. There’s so much more you can do to ensure God’s Word prevails in your city, region or country, and the world.
Dear Father, I’m determined, more than ever, to spread, to the ends of the earth, the glorious news of Christ’s Salvation and His wondrous works towards mankind. The Kingdom of God has been set up in my heart: the peace, beauty, glory, grace and life of God are fully functional in my spirit, expressed in and through me. Through me, the Word prevails in my city, region, country, and the world. Blessed be God!
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
