“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9, TAB)
“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:6, KJV)
The bible is all about a King and His kingdom. The King looked at His kingdom and decided to expand the realm of His reign. Looking at the universe, He decided to spread His dominion to the earth. He then sent an ambassador to the earth, so that what obtains in His kingdom will also obtain on earth. To ensure that the ambassador is able to function properly, He created a semblance of what obtained in his kingdom on earth. Instead of the chaos, emptiness and darkness that pervaded the earth then, He replaced darkness with light, filled the earth and put order in it.
He then gave the ambassador the authority to rule on earth or to be in dominion over all He created on earth. This ambassador was required to say the mind of the King on earth and he was also given guidelines as to what he could and could not do. At a given point, the ambassador decided that he will not hearken to the edict of the ruling and supreme King.
When the King noticed this, the ambassador was stripped of his authority and sent out of the consular home or ambassadors lodge. This King then made a decision to have many more ambassadors instead of one. The thinking behind this is that the power vested in ambassadors can so much corrupt them that they begin to believe that there is none like them or the influence of their environment can corrupt them to make them renege on their ruling authority’s principles and ways of living.
The challenge is that every ambassador has to be trained i.e. go through some form of training to understand the do’s and don’ts of the ambassadorial position and also be elected by an oath of allegiance. The question now is who will be able to train future ambassadors in the way the King wants. The person that will be able to train future ambassadors must be somebody:
- close to the King
- understand the ways of the King
- the likes and dislikes of the King
- knows what obtains in the domain of the king
- be able to enforce and influence
- knowledgeable enough to change the way people think and act
- must “only” promote the agenda of the king or kingdom agenda
The only person qualified for the task of teaching others about the kingdom principles, revealing the mind of the king and incapable of planning a coup against the king or promoting his own agenda is His begotten son—not just a son. This son had to be begotten. For something to be begotten simply means to cause to exist. This son or heir of the king was caused to exist or originated by the avenue of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit had to be the creative power in the Son so that any thought of sinning or having a mind of His own will never occur. He had to be conceived and sealed by the Holy Spirit.
Also, there will not be any reason to deviate from the plan of the King. I am sure that at one time or the other, you have heard or read about son’s killing their parents or son’s killing their father. There are several examples in the Bible to portray this. To ensure that such never existed in this case, the egg and sperm of creation that formed the zygote of the begotten Son had to be from the Holy Spirit—the Son was begotten by the Holy Spirit.
When the Son came to the earth, he gathered some people together and started teaching them about the King and His Kingdom. This was the all in all in His message, the King and His Kingdom. These people that he gathered together then swore an oath of allegiance to always honour the King. As with the case of the first ambassador that became a traitor, one of the people that the Son gathered also became a traitor. He was wrongly influenced by his environment and he stopped believing in the benefits of the kingdom.
When the Son completed His mission, He had to go back to the King. At this point, He knew He had enough ambassadors to also train more ambassadors. To go back was a challenge because of the route He had to take to go back. There were certain keys that the first ambassador lost that he had to retrieve before going back. To get to the location of the key, the son had to die because the keys due to the death of the first ambassador were now located in the land of the dead.
There were two main challenges to the Son, how to withstand the pain of death and to also come back to life after death. Enter in His personal assistant that conceived and sealed Him to the rescue. As it was in His coming when the Holy Spirit assisted, the Holy Spirit also had to assist Him to die and go back to the kingdom of the King. The Son realized the importance and influence of the Holy Spirit in the fulfillment of His assignment therefore even before he left this terra firma in the flesh, he told all His committed and trained ambassadors then that He will give them a personal assistant. This personal assistant will make a difference in the execution of their ambassadorial duties.
For all future ambassadors, the personal assistant is also always available. The personal assistant is always available in the sense that while the first ambassador that later stopped speaking the mind of the King had an ambassadorial lodge that he lived in but was outside of the body, the ambassadorial lodge of the present ambassadors is mobile. They carry this residence wherever they go therefore the personal assistant being a resident of the ambassadorial lodge is always available.
