Romans 14:17 says the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. What does the kingdom of God mean? The Kingdom or the dominion of God same word the dominion of God, or one translation says the realm of God.

One translation says the spirit dimension, the realm of God the dominion of God is three things that Paul picked out, righteousness you must understand that you been made the righteousness of God in Christ and live with a sense and a conscience of that when God sees you He looks at you that you had never did anything wrong that you had not sinned, you have been justified, you have been washed in the blood, your as righteous as Jesus you have boldness to come to the throne of God, you come is as a son of God and a daughter of God and come in there and declare I am the righteousness of God in Christ!

Dad Hagin simply said, If the devil can get you under condemnation he can cheat you out of your inheritance. In other words, righteousness is a signature of the gospel. The gospel is a revelation of righteousness! Why is that so key? because you have 90 percent of people that have to go to a physiatrist do so because of kinds of guilt and shame and feeling and depression of what happen and this could of happened and shouldn’t of happened and why do I feel this way.

But when you get a revelation of righteousness you declare “I’m free from a sense of sin or guilt or inferiority, I’ve been made the righteousness of God in Christ. This is just the fundamentals.

So the gospel of Christ is the power of God! The gospel of Christ is the power of God! I love the way T.L. Osborne said it years ago, I heard him say this, He said: “Most Christians think they need more power when really they just need more gospel.” The gospel of Christ is the power of God, Hallelujah!  

The Gospel Of Christ
What is the Gospel of Christ? First Corinthians 15 says that Jesus died, He was buried and on the third day He rose from the dead, and when he rose form the dead Paul said that is the gospel right there. What happened on the cross? What happened on those three days and nights? What happened when God raised Him from the dead? He said that is the gospel of Christ!

When Jesus arose from the dead He didn’t come out of the tomb after He was raised from the dead and He come out of the tome and He went my back, I glad that I’m raised from the dead and He got one disciple on one side and on the other said and their helping Him. His hair is all messed up and He’s got strays and He said that was Hell.

Now I’m going back to the Father because I’ve had enough of this, I’m goanna try one more time to go back to the Father, and so He had to get on the disciples shoulders and they kind’ a gave Him a boost so He could get up and some angels grabbed Him and drugged Him back to Heaven and He sat down on the right hand of the Father and He went, I’m glad that is over, It is finished.  

Isn’t that ridiculous, Jesus didn’t sit down at the right hand of God because He was tired, He went can you’ll all get me a chair, I need a recliner – no, no, no. When Jesus arose from the dead it was not even really a close game, you know what I mean?  God didn’t even need to take it into overtime and Jesus won with a last second shot and went through the basket and everybody went oh’ oh’ He barely won, 110 to 109 praise the Lord’.

No, No, No, when Jesus arose from the dead first thing He said is “All power in heaven and in earth is given unto Me!!! He said,  I got all of it! Hey’ so that doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter if your in Heaven whether your in the earth your one of those places, He said – everywhere!! Everybody say all power, all power!
How much does that leave for the devil? He don’t get nothing, Jesus said, devil you get zero! You get nothing, nothing! He said I’m goanna whip you a thousand to nothing! It’s goanna be a shut-out!    

 God wants you to have a shut-out! In other words He wants you to win in everything, in your family, in your body, in your mind, in your finances, in everything, every area, every area, every place! In Africa, in India, in London wherever you are any city every place!

 Jesus did it so good, He wants you to have at least to have enough respect to get happy about it’ and that’s not an ending response, that’s the initial response, that’s the continual response, come on that a lifetime response of rejoicing in the Lord always and again I say rejoice!  

 I believe you can shout depression out of you life, I believe you can laugh sickness out of your life, Jesus already paid for it, I believe you can rejoice in the victory of Christ!

 The devil wants you to have selective victory the devil says you win here, and you can win there’  but your not goanna win here’ and you say no devil, I’m winning here, winning here and winning here, every area!! Yea’ in my spirit, in my mind, in my body, in my family, in my finances, every area! Ha’ Ha’ Ha’

 Come on now’ just develop a conscience of now thanks be unto God! Who always makes me to triumph, in Christ Jesus. You don’t have to pray for it, Jesus already did it, it is a free gift. Triumph in the Holy Ghost! Triumph in your prayers! The bible says that in His presence there is fullness of joy!

 The word gospel, just the word gospel, just the word gospel means good news! It literally means glad tidings, it’s a message that first of all  makes you glad. I was praying in the Holy Ghost and worshiping the Lord one day and God showed me what He did in Christ for me, He said, I have made you alive together with Christ, I raised you up together with Him and I seated you together with Him in Heavenly places. And my first reaction was Ha’ Ha’ Ha’.

 I’m tell’ in ya what happened, first time I saw it’ I went Ha’ Ha’ Ha’. Devil you’re a liar, you’re a liar, I been raised up with Christ! So I’m not trying to get it, not someday going to get it, hoping I might be good enough to get it’, God got if for me in Christ and just gave it to me and said here, sit down right here!

 It’s good news in English, good news in Japanese, good news in Swahili, it’s good new in French, it’s good news in German, it’s good news in anywhere you go, it’s good news! When you understand the good news you go Glory to God’ Glory to God’ thank you Jesus’ thank you Lord!

 Then you start pointing around and say mountains your going to have to be removed, you start pointing around and say money your going to have to come into me right now, you start pointing around and say sickness your going to have to have to go you can’t stay there.
