I am a citizen!
I work on being a good citizen to do my country proud. I serve The King, I am His subject. I live not in a Democracy but a Theocracy.
You do not see my King for His Kingdom is not of this world, not yet anyway, not visible to the naked eye.
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world . . . . (MKJV)
I am His ambassador, here on a mission with the backing of His government. The weight of His authority rests on me, I carry His Seal, “The Holy Spirit”; and this Seal is upon my heart.
2 Corinthians 1: 21 Now he which establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, is God; 22 Who has also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. (AKJV)
Since I am an ambassador, my home is His Embassy; therefore it is the Sovereign Territory of His Kingdom. I have Kingdom rights, and Kingdom responsibilities. Where I travel, I go with His authority.
Ephesians 6: 20 For which I am an ambassador . . . . (AKJV)
As being the King’s subject, full protection is afforded me, wherever I go. When I speak to someone I speak with full authority. The person sees only me, but it is as if the King Himself speaks.
Ephesians 6: 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.(AKJV)
The King is pleased to surround me with His blessing. His guards go with me everywhere. No one and nothing can touch me save that which He allows, and He does not allow harm to come my way.
Psalm 91: 7 A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.(AKJV)
The food I eat is pre-tasted and cleared for my consumption, so it will not make me ill. His protection is such that even a sickness cannot touch me.
Psalm 91: 10 There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.(AKJV)
If someone tries to touch me uninvited, I have merely to invoke My King’s name, and my guards come to my aid.
Psalm 91: 11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. 12 They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.(AKJV)
I do not invite anyone who may wish me harm to my home. If I want some to visit, the person/persons come by invitation. If they try to come in without invitation, here at this embassy, we consider it an invasion. We treat it as such and the guards repel them with brute force if necessary.
Psalm 91: 15 He shall call on me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.(AKJV)
Our embassy is constantly in touch with the King. The staff appointed me is in constant touch with Him to keep and o serve. There isn’t a day, or an event that happens that He is in the dark about. Even my little ones know they are protected just as I am.
Matthew 18:10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say to you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.(MKJV)
As an ambassador, I have duties to perform, and I must perform diligently.
2 Timothy 4: 5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry.(AKJV)
I am aware of dangers that abound, so it is my responsibility to see to the welfare of my family. That includes ensuring my children do not act irresponsibly and step into dangerous situations. The guards can only protect us as long as we stay within His appointed bounds.
If I, or my family choose to step outside and away from His protective detail appointed to us, we find ourselves without the guards, and hence without His protection.
Hebrews 4: 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following the same pattern of disobedience.(BSB)
When and where the King calls me to go, I must. What He tells me to say, I must. Sometimes I am given orders I do not understand the reason for, but I must comply and follow them. Sometimes I am given a message to deliver to someone, and again, I must do so without questioning.
There are times when I am tasked with something unpleasant, but mine is not to challenge His authority. I serve at His pleasure.
Kingdom Rights, Kingdom Privileges, Kingdom Riches, Kingdom Blessings, Kingdom Protections are all mine, and my family’s. So are Kingdom Responsibilities.
I must recognize if I do not fulfill my obligations and my responsibilities, I can be removed and replaced. After all, I serve at His pleasure.
There will come a time when I am recalled by the King. Until that time comes, I serve my King here. When I am called back, I will be required to give a full account of my service. When I do, I hope to be rewarded commensurate with my work.
1 Corinthians 3: 14 If what he has built survives, he will receive a reward.(BSB)
Revelation 22: 12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to what he has done.(BSB)

On this earth, without geographical, national, racial, gender or age barriers, there are many ambassadors with the same mandate as is given to me. Are you one of them??
If not, you can be, just for the asking! Ask Him to make you one of His, and you can count on it, He will!!
