There are three position that the kingdom puts believers to function in on the earth. Every believer should function in one way or the other in these positions. These positions are

(a) functioning as kings.

(b) functioning as priests and  

(c) functioning prophetically.

Every believer walking in line with God's purpose and plan will function in these positions in one dimension or the other.

The upper most in the heart of God for every believer is our kingdom growth. God is looking for believers that will function in these roles on the earth and it is our level of growth that helps us to understand how to operate and use kingdom principles to influence our world as a king, priest and prophet.

In the kingdom, it is not Church attendance that changes us, but the revelation we receive. The revelation of Jesus helps us to function properly on the earth. The Church attendance is to give us a position where we can have access to the revelation.  Until we get a revelation, we can't operate on the earth the way God want us to operate.

When we get born again, we become priests and kings on the earth but it is the revelation we have that will enable us to operate at that level. As a king, we should have dominion on the earth and enforce the will of God. As a priest, we should be able to have direct access to God. The world does not have access to God but we do. We should represent God to them. They can only know what God is saying, His will and instructions through us. 

Like Peter, until he got the revelation, he did not have access to the level of authority Jesus spoke about. When he did not have the revelation, he denied Jesus. When he got that revelation, he preached on the day of Pentecost and 3000 souls were saved. No matter how great what God has for us is, until we have the revelation we can't operate at the level.

Prayer: I receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God to know how to function on the earth as a believer in Jesus’ name. Amen.
