INTRODUCTION TO PART III:
UNDERSTANDING THE LAWS OF THE KINGDOM (e²)

There are three types of laws that influence the affairs of men in the earth:  man-made laws, physical laws, and spiritual laws.  In order to live happy, fulfilled and successful lives, it is important that we understand those laws. In Part III of Business by the Spirit, we will familiarize you with five laws of the kingdom of God which influence your success in your life.

It is hard for a person who lives in a democracy to understand the way a kingdom operates. A kingdom is the domain over which the king has dominion; it is a domain over which he has absolute authority.  The king makes the law, and the king is the judge and the jury concerning the law--he is sovereign. According to the law of the Medes and Persians, the king's word once spoken could not be altered.  Not even the king himself could change it, for the king's word was the law of the Mede-Persian Empire (Daniel 6:8).

It is the same in the kingdom of heaven.  When God speaks, His Word becomes the law of heaven; it cannot be rescinded. God's Word is His will; it is the law of heaven.  Jesus said, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away" (Matthew 24:35).  The psalmist proclaimed "Forever, O Lord, Your Word is established in heaven." (Psalms 119:89); but it is our responsibility to establish His Word in the earth.

God has given human beings a will, and as long as they live on the earth they are allowed to exercise their will. Mankind can choose to believe and obey God's Word or to doubt and disobey His Word. If a man disobeys God's Word, and later confesses his disobedience, God is faithful to forgive his disobedience (1 John 1:9).

But angels do not have a choice; they exist to do God's will, and to obey His law. God's Word is the law of heaven, and the angels of God must obey His Word. When Satan and his angels disobeyed God's law, they were cast out of the kingdom of heaven (Luke 10:18).
When you and I take our stand in faith, on God's Word, and refuse to yield to doubt and unbelief, the angels of God will come along side of you to bring His Word to pass in the earth. In the following pages we will discuss the Law of Success, the Law of Seed Time and Harvest, the Law of Giving and Receiving, the Law of Love, the Law of Faith, as well as the importance of hope in the operation of these laws.
