Kingdom Benefits Of Citizens

 Now Therefore We Are God’s Ambassadors

 

16So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

18And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Kingdom Benefits Of Citizens


I will try to define 4 points that I believe make out Benefits Of Citizens of The Kingdom of Heaven whilst they are here on Earth.

A Citizen is a native or naturalized member of a state or nation who owes allegiance to its government and is entitled to its protection (distinguished from alien).

an inhabitant of a city or town, especially one entitled to its privileges or franchises.

 

Citizenship is a relationship between an individual and a state to which the individual owes allegiance and in turn, is entitled to its protection. Citizenship implies the status of freedom with accompanying responsibilities. Citizens have certain rights, duties, and responsibilities that are denied or only partially extended to aliens and other noncitizens residing in a country. In general, the usual responsibilities of citizenship are allegiance, taxation, and military service.

A citizen is a participatory member of a political community. Citizenship is gained by meeting the legal requirements of a national, state, or local government. A nation grants certain rights and privileges to its citizens. In return, citizens are expected to obey their country's laws and defend it against its enemies.

The value of citizenship varies from nation to nation. In some countries, citizenship can mean a citizen has the right to vote, the right to hold government offices, and the right to collect unemployment insurance payments, Medicare, to name a few examples.

Living in a country does not mean that a person is necessarily a citizen of that country. Citizens of one country who live in a foreign country are known as aliens. Their rights and duties are determined by political treaties and by the laws of the country in which they stay.

Requirements to earn Citizenship is the legal act or process by which a non-citizen of a country may acquire citizenship of that country. It may be done automatically by a statute, i.e., without any effort on the part of the individual, or it may involve an application or a motion and approval by legal authorities. The rules of citizenship vary from country to country but typically include a promise to obey and uphold that country's laws, taking and subscribing to the oath of allegiance, and may specify other requirements such as a minimum legal residency and adequate knowledge of the national dominant language or culture. To counter multiple citizenships, most countries require that applicants for citizenship renounce any other citizenship that they currently hold, but whether this renunciation actually causes loss of original citizenship, as seen by the host country and by the original country, will depend on the laws of the countries involved.

Ambassadors now normally live overseas or within the country in which they are assigned for long periods of time so that they are acquainted with the culture and local people. This way they are more politically effective and trusted, enabling them to accomplish goals that their country desires. It is considered important that the nations of the world have at least a small staff living in foreign capitals in order to aid travelers and visitors from their home nation. As an officer of the foreign service, an ambassador is expected to protect the citizens of their home country in the host country. 

Embassy. diplomatic mission or foreign mission is a group of people from one state or an organization present in another state to represent the sending state or organization officially in the receiving state. In practice, the phrase diplomatic mission usually denotes the resident mission, namely the embassy, which is the main office of a country's diplomatic representatives to another country; this is usually, but not necessarily, in the receiving state's capital city. Consulates, on the other hand, are smaller diplomatic missions that are normally located in major cities of the receiving state (but can be located in the capital, usually when the sending country has no embassy in the receiving state). As well as being a diplomatic mission to the country in which it is situated, it may also be a non-resident permanent mission to one or more other countries. There are thus resident and non-resident embassies. An embassy is a diplomatic mission generally located in the capital city of another country that offers a full range of services, including consular services.

E.g., the overall mission of the U.S. Embassy in Harare is:

  • To protect the interests and safety of American citizens in Zimbabwe,

  • To present U.S. government policies and concerns to the government and people of Zimbabwe,

  • To assist with Zimbabwe’s development and humanitarian needs,

  • And to build lasting personal and institutional linkages between the people of the United States and Zimbabwe.

In 2016 our top priorities are:

  • To Provide Effective Humanitarian Assistance to Vulnerable Groups; as well as promote food security in Zimbabwe through agricultural development and the President’s Feed the Future initiative.

  • To support the fundamental values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law including alignment of existing laws with the new constitution.

  • To Support Delivery of Quality HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and child and maternal health programs with the government of Zimbabwe.

  • To advocate for clear, consistent policies and anti-corruption efforts as the basis for sustained economic growth and Economic Recovery.

  • To provide economic opportunities for women and young Zimbabweans through entrepreneurship skills training and fostering linkages with American businesses.

 

BENEFITS OF CITIZENS OF THE KINGDOM

In the Kingdom of God, you also have to go through the process for acquiring citizenship and get proper teachings/statutes of the Kingdom of God. You only get qualified when you are born again John 1:11-13 and John 3:1-6. 

In that way you can now claim the benefits Galatians 4:1-7. God makes us new first, 2 Corinthians 5:17, so as to fit us into His new world, this renewal is an ongoing process that makes you grow and develop, Col 3:9—10.


The Embassy provides for every ambassador and its citizens in any foreign country.

Likewise, the kingdom of heaven has sent us here on Earth as Ambassadors to represent the Kingdom of Heaven. So in the midst of our heavenly mission here on the kingdom of the earth, God has established embassies for us and made provision for the mission. Hence Jesus says in Matthew 6:31-34, do not worry about what you shall eat, drink, dress and may I add? Do not worry about housing, transportation, fees, rents, etc., for your heavenly father/King of the kingdom of Heaven who sent you here on earth will provide.

So I say even in life’s needs and in this global pandemic, God is able to provide for His own.

If you don’t have and not receiving anything for your mission, chances are that you have not yet got the concept of being a Kingdom Ambassador.

The supernatural provision is what is given to the believers who are ambassadors of any kingdom.

Check yourself, do you have the assurance and confirmation as an Ambassador to this earthly mission from the kingdom of God? And can you claim the benefits?

And are you mature enough to represent the kingdom?

The past is what God came to fix through Jesus and give us a new life in its fullness, John 10:10

You quote and claim to be the head and not the tail, but you live like the tail.

You quote I can do all things through Christ who strengthened me but you are busy doing other people's things.

Helloooo, quoting scripture does not give you what it says, but doing scripture is what gives you what it said.

It’s so poor to see Christians poor. 

It’s so sad to see Christians sad. 

And so sickening to see Christians sick.

When we are supposed to live the life of Ambassadors who truly represents the kingdom of Heaven on earth.
