1Kingdom of God Unity PLUS Group A Consortium of God’s People Living the 7 Freedoms and doing God’s will God’s Way!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
2KOG stands for Kingdom of God! The Bible declares that God “ . . .rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of the Son He (God) loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1:13-14)Therefore, the Kingdom of God is a current reality, though not fully visible to anyone not a citizen of it.By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
3Read Philippians 3:18-21“ many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
4Yes, we are citizens of the Kingdom and His children “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are . . .Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself as He is pure.” (1John 3:1-3)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
5Aliens in a Kingdom cannot become ambassadors! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. All this is from God who reconciled us to Himself through Christ We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us . . .”By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
6Therefore, as citizens and ambassadors . . . We have all the rights, but only the rights, conferred by our head of government!We have all the responsibilities, but only the responsibilities, conferred by our head of government!We have all the privileges, but only the privileges conferred by our head of government!God is our head of government!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
7As an ambassador, we are also ministers! We have been assigned the Ministry of Reconciliation!The purpose of all ministry is to equip the saints for the work of the Body so we become built up [spiritually] until we come into unity! (See Eph. 4:9-13)That’s why the second word in our name is Unity!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
8God’s people should always be learning unlimited success! That’s what the acronym P.L.U.S. means!People Learning Unlimited Success!In Isa. 55:8-11, we see that God’s Word is the key to success!Therefore, as the children of God, citizens of the Kingdom of God, and ambassadors, assigned to dark and dying world, we practice success by learning to speak God’s Word all the time!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
9We are a HBBO Consortium! The dictionary defines consortium as:An association or a combination, as of businesses, financial institutions, or investors, for the purpose of engaging in a joint venture.A cooperative arrangement among groups or institutions:By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
10HBBO includes several meanings! Home . . .(where we live)Based. . . (our respective headquarters)Business . . .(products and services we provide. (Note—We are not self-employed!)Opportunity . . .Before we beginOperation . . .When we are up and running!Owner . . .The individual owner!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
11We all operate Marketplace Ministries! We believe God provided an economic “Promised Land” for the Church, just as He did for the ancient nation of Israel!The ancient Promised Land of Caanan was an economic bonanza!In this 21st century world, God has provide His Church, His servants, His ministers, a similar, albeit vastly different, bonanza!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
12God confirms this assertion through the Apostle Peter “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness . . .Through these [His glory and goodness] He has given us His very great and precious promises . . .So that through them [His very great and precious promises] you may participate in the divine nature . . .And escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” (2Peter 1:3-4)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
13The issue is not “asking,” but accessing! To access all the things that God has given us—everything we need for life and godliness—we must live in our freedom from sin, as slaves to righteousness!“For God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2Cor. 5:21)“Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of life has set me free from the law of sin and death.” (Rom. 8:1-2)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
14We are free from the consequences and power of sin! “You have been set free form sin and have become slaves to righteousness.” (Rom. 6:18)!“You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ . . .because those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God . . .Now if we are children, then we are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ . . .” (Rom. 8:9-15)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
15As God’s freed children, we are called to unity “I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no division among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought!” (1Cor. 1:10)“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2Cor. 3:17)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
16Jesus commissioned us to become disciple-making disciples! “Then the 11 disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go . . .Then Jesus came to them and said: ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matt. 28:16-18)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
17We are to invest in each other—current disciples—and living stones “Remember this, whoever sows sparingly will reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly, or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work . . .” (2Cor. 9:6-9)By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
18Jesus explained the spiritual law for doing business God’s way “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things[ life’s basics—remember we already have all we need for life] will be given to you as well.” (Matt. 6:33)“Give, and it will be given to you, A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
19Jesus also provided two powerful prayer principles “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” (Matt. 18:19)This is the prayer of agreement, a petition that guarantees specific answers!Any two of us in agreement for business success, praying the prayer of agreement, can trust in God’s guarantee!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
20Jesus also said to pray the prayer of faith! (1)“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “I tell you the truth, (2) if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself in the sea, and . . .(3) “does not doubt in his heart . . .“but (4) believes that what he says will happen . . .(5) “it will be done for him.“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, (6) believe that you have received it and (7) it will be yours.”By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
21So who are we?We are God’s children, citizens and ambassadors of the Kingdom of God!In agreement with each other that we should be about the Father’s business!Functioning daily in Marketplace MinistryLiving fully in the freedoms of the SpiritTrusting God and . . .Thereby investing in each other without fear of loss!By Milton C. Jordan, Sr.
