Welcome, this is one person’s journey through the Kingdom of God, in a story called “The Kingdom”. The Kingdom takes two forms; Zion – the Kingdom that will come, and the Kingdom Of God that is within. Jesus told Pilate “My Kingdom is not of this world”, and the Pharisees were told “the Kingdom of God is within you.” Jesus stood on the mountain and taught the crowds to seek this place first, saying “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God”. This story is a take on that. I drew inspiration for the setting of this inner world from Psalm 45, an ancient song about the King;
He (the King) is fairer than the sons of men
and his lips have been anointed with grace,
since God has blessed Him forever
Since it is written in John 1:10 that all who believe in the King and receive Him are given the right to become children of God, in the Kingdom I call myself a Princess. The gown of the Princess is woven with gold.
The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;
Her clothing is woven with gold.
She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colours. Psalm 45
In the inner world of the Kingdom, I am but one Princess. There are many of us in the worldwide Body of Christ, the Kingdom of God. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. (1 Samuel 2:8) We who are many are one body, for we all share the one bread. Together, the threads of our stories weave into a robe of many colours. Let me bring you to the King’s palace. In my Father’s house are many rooms. The King has gone to prepare a place for all who will accept Him as Lord. You may already know the way. If you don’t, let me show you.
