Definition of terms:

KINGDOM:  A kingdom is the territory of a king, where the word of the monarch is law.

MAN: The kingdom Man is the kind of man God’s kingdom can depend on for expansion and stability. No country will send an ambassador that it cannot rely on totally to another country. Whatever he does is what the country does. He is as powerful as his king in his country of posting. That is why his residence is regarded as an extension of his home country. The host country cannot attack it or arrest anybody inside. It will be seen as an attack on the home country.

TEXT: Matthew 6: 10-13—God’s domain spans heaven and earth. So a Kingdom Man must reflect heavenly qualities on earth.


The qualities of the king determine the qualities of his kingdom. By looking at the characteristics of God, we will know about the requirements of His kingdom. Every organisation takes on the character of the head because the leader makes final decisions based on his personality, wishes and desires. Thus, by looking at God’s attributes, we will know the characteristics of His kingdom and the man that fits into this royal territory. The more you tap into God’s qualities, the more you become His kingdom Man.

(10) God reflects

Genesis 1: 4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31


For emphasis, the leader of a country will not send somebody that is unlike him to represent him in another country. This is why ambassadors are highly trained to reflect the values of their countries and their leaders. The ambassador must accurately represent the wishes and desires of his home country without any deviation. In the same way, somebody who is unlike God cannot be His Kingdom Man. Thus, what makes you a Kingdom Man is not your age, title or status, but how much of the attributes of God that you possess. How much are you like God? How much of God can people see in you? That is what makes us Kingdom Men. The more we carry His image, the more effective and influential we will be in His domain.

The question now arises: How well are you tapping into God’s qualities? These are some of the things we should do to tap into His qualities:

(1)Evangelise at every opportunity.

(2)Endure trials.

1 Thessalonians 5: 17

I Timothy 2: 8

(4)Associate with the right people.

Associate with those who are going in the direction you are going and encourage you. Associate closely only with those who speak the language of your destination, not the language of your frustrations. Every relationship takes you up or down. Every association adds to you or takes away from you. Some friendships might have taken so much from you that what is left of you is a carcass. Don’t continue in that direction.

Judges 16: 4-30

1 Samuel 22: 2

(11)Nigeria: no reliable statistics, but one court in Abuja alone handled 24 cases of divorce in three months. Lawyers lamented to Vanguard newspapers in 2017 that “new couples do not know what the marriage institution is all about and are not prepared for it.”

(6)Shun pride. Be humble.

If you are not humble, you will be humbled.

James 4: 6

I Peter 5: 5-6

1 Samuel 15: 17
