Kingdom Principles by Myles Munroe

Dr Myles Munroe was sent by God to bring back the message of the kingdom. In his book Kingdom Principles, he explained the concept of kingdom principles and how their place in life and God’s kingdom. This was the message Jesus preached while He was on earth. The child of God must therefore relate with God both as a father and as a citizen of the Kingdom.

To fully understand our place as citizens of God’s kingdom and how we are to live on earth as a result of that, we should understand these 25 Kingdom Principles Dr Myles Munroe’s book highlighted.

PS: If you do not understand the message of the kingdom, you will not appreciate these principles. Before you read this, let Dr. Myles Munroe mentor you on the message of the Kingdom here.

What Are Kingdom Principles?

Kingdom principles are the guiding rules that dictate how the kingdom should operate. They are the inherent laws for function of potential within the kingdom of God. Kingdom principles answer the question of “how” things should be done. They define the boundary and scope which actions within a territory should remain and the consequences every action will bring. Principles protect purpose and potential.

Summary of Kingdom Principles by Myles Munroe

Kingdom Principle #1: The Bible is not primarily about a religion or rituals, but about the establishment of a kingdom rulership on this planet from the heavenly realm.

Religion preoccupies man until he finds the Kingdom. Religion is what man does until he finds the Kingdom. Religion prepares man to leave earth; the Kingdom empowers man to dominate earth. Religion focuses on Heaven; the Kingdom focuses on earth. Religion is reaching up to God; the Kingdom is God coming down to man. Religion wants to escape earth; the Kingdom impacts, influences and changes earth. Religion seeks to take earth to Heaven; the Kingdom seeks to bring Heaven to earth.

Kingdom Principle #2: The greatest secret to living effectively on earth is understanding the principle and power of priorities.

Kingdom Principle #3: The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but life without a purpose—life with the wrong priorities.

Our self-worth is more important than our basic needs and should never be sacrificed for the sake of those needs.

Kingdom Principle #4: God’s number-one priority for mankind is that we discover, understand, and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

A kingdom is the governing influence of a king over his territory, impacting it with his personal will, purpose and intent, producing a culture, values, morals, and lifestyle that reflect the king’s desires and nature for his citizens.

God established only two priorities for mankind: the Kingdom of God and the righteousness of God. The concept of “kingdom” was not invented by mankind but was the first form of government introduced by the Creator. Ignorance of the kingdom concept makes it difficult to understand fully the message of the Bible

Ninety percent of all the national and international problems facing our world today are the result either of government or religion. The need for government and order is inherent in the human spirit and is a manifestation of a divine mandate given to mankind by the Creator. Man’s need for some formal government structure is an outgrowth of his need for social order and relationship management.

Kingdom Principle #5: The mandate of the Creator for mankind was rulership and dominion.

Kingdom Principle #6: Some governments are better than others, but all are inferior to God’s government—the Kingdom of Heaven.

Democracy is the best form of civil government as we know it because of its basic tenets and because of the checks and balances of the system. One major defect of democracy is its fundamental principle of “majority rule,” which even though it gives power to the majority of the people, places morality, values, and the standards for law at the mercy of the majority, thus legitimising the majority’s values, desires, beliefs, aspirations, and preferences even when they are against God’s will. Our best alternative is to return to the original governing concept of God the Creator, which is the kingdom concept

Kingdom Principle #7: Colonisation is Heaven’s system for earthly influence.

The proof of colonization is culture. God wants to influence the earth with Heaven’s culture and we are the ambassadors to extend that culture.

Kingdom Principle #8: The King of Heaven wants sons and daughters, not servants. Jesus came that we might “receive the full rights of sons”

Kingdom Principle #9: A king is the central component of his kingdom.

A king is the ultimate and only source of authority in his kingdom. The sovereignty of a king is inherent in his royal authority. God’s sovereignty is absolute. He is completely self-determining. All kings are automatically lords. Kingship has to do with authority; lordship has to do with ownership. All true kings must have and own territory.

Kingdom Principle #10: As lord, a king literally and legally owns everything in his domain.

If the king owns everything, then no one in the kingdom owns anything. If the king owns everything, he can give anything to anyone at any time according to his own sovereign choice. A king’s wealth is measured by the size and richness of his domain. God, the King of Heaven, is King and Lord of all. Jesus Christ is King and Lord of all.

Kingdom Principle #11: The most important confession any of us could ever make is to declare, “Jesus Christ is Lord.”

There is no such thing as lordship without obedience. If Jesus is Lord, He must receive first priority in your life. Jesus is either Lord of all, or He is not Lord at all. Living under a Lord also means giving up all concepts of personal ownership. Relinquishing ownership puts us into the position of full access to all of Heaven’s resources. Letting go of personal ownership also nourishes and releases a generous spirit within us

Kingdom Principle #12: In the Kingdom of Heaven, there is no economic crisis and there are no shortages.

Kingdom Principle #13: A king is only as wealthy as his domain.

Every kingdom has territory. Heaven is a real Kingdom with a real government. A king is not a king unless he has territory over which
to rule. The Son of God came to get the Kingdom back for man. Without territory no kingdom can exist.

Our destiny as human beings is wrapped up in land. We were made for the earth, and that is where our place of dominion will be in the life to come. The meek will inherit the earth, not Heaven.

Kingdom Principle #14: We are kings by delegation, not by creation.

God is the King over all the earth but He chose to delegate dominion over the earth to us.

Kingdom Principle #15: God will not intervene in the affairs of this earthly domain without the permission of those who hold dominion authority here.

Through prayer we invite God to act in our domain. In the Kingdom of Heaven there are no “haves” and “have nots”; everyone is a “have.”

Kingdom Principle #16: Every kingdom has a constitution.

The constitution of a kingdom is the documented will, purposes, and intent of the king. In a kingdom, the constitution is a royal contract that the king has with his subjects — his citizens. A kingdom constitution is the document that constitutes the king’s desire for his citizens. The constitution in a kingdom constitutes the expressed will of the king.

The Bible is the expressed will of the King in written form. It is the constitution of His Kingdom. The words of the king become the law of the land. The constitution is the will and the testament of the king for his citizens. The Bible comprises God’s documented thoughts concerning His citizens —His expressed will, desire, and intent for the human race He created in His own image

Kingdom Principle #17: Every kingdom is governed by laws.

The Bible is the law book of the Kingdom of Heaven. The Kingdom of heaven has laws to protect it and assure that it operates according to God’s intent. Laws are built into creation. Whatever becomes accepted as a norm in our society eventually becomes a law of our society. God’s laws are designed to prevent us from accepting and normalising evil and assigning it the force of law in our society. God’s laws have personal application with national ramifications.

Kingdom Principle #18: Written law is necessary only when natural law is absent.

The purpose for written law is to restore natural law to the conscience. Natural law is sometimes referred to as the “spirit of the law.” Laws produce society because they determine social relationships. The spirit of the law is the inherent essence of the original purpose and intent of that law. Any nation is only as good as the laws it enacts. Natural law is the fundamental operating principle of the Kingdom of Heaven

Kingdom Principle #19: Life in the Kingdom is really about returning to the governing authority of God in the earth and learning how to live and function in that authority.

Kingdom Principle #20: The Kingdom of Heaven is not a secret society, but its keys have to be learned.

When you know the keys to the Kingdom secrets, you will never again say, “All I have is….” Keys represent authority. Keys represent access. Keys represent ownership. Keys represent control. Keys represent authorization. Keys represent power. Keys represent freedom. The keys of the Kingdom are the keys to ultimate truth, the knowledge of which brings true liberty

Kingdom Principle #21: Citizenship is the most sacred privilege of a nation.

Citizenship is the most precious gift that any nation can give. Like any other country, the Kingdom of God has the principle of citizenship. Every Kingdom citizen today is a naturalised citizen. The new birth makes us naturalised citizens of the Kingdom. Not only does the new birth make us citizens of heaven, but our citizenship begins immediately. We are Kingdom citizens right now. Our citizenship is a present reality. Religion postpones citizenship to the future. You can never appropriate what you postpone.

Kingdom Principle #22: All Kingdom citizens carry dual citizenship.

We are both citizens of heaven and citizens of the nation we were born.

Kingdom Principle #23: Once you understand the culture of a people, you understand the people.

Our culture should reflect and reveal our citizenship as being here but not from here, as being in the world but not of the world. Culture is the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group. Culture is the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practises that characterise a company or corporation. Culture means to grow in a prepared medium. The battle for earth is the battle for culture.

Kingdom Principle #24: Giving is a fundamental principle of the Kingdom of Heaven.

God is a giver. The power of kings is displayed in their wealth. The purpose for a king’s wealth is to secure his reputation—his glory. The glory of a king is his power to out-give another king. Giving places a demand on the king’s wealth. Giving requires a response from the king. Giving to a king attracts his wealth to the giver. Royal protocol requires that a gift must be presented when visiting a king. The gift must be fitting for the king. The gift reveals our value or “worth-ship” of the king. Worship demands a gift and giving is worship.

Kingdom Principle #25: Giving to a king attracts his favour.

Giving to a king acknowledges his ownership of everything. Giving to a king is thanksgiving. Giving begets giving. Giving activates royal obligation. Give Him your life and receive His life.

These are principles of the kingdom of God! I know these concepts are very complex, I have broken them down here that even a dummy can understand. If you would prefer the actual book, you should get a copy here.
