The ICCC focuses on the Kingdom
The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness coexist; that is a fact. But the Kingdom of God is in all ways superior to the kingdom of darkness. When God created Man, he gave him dominion over creation. Adam lost his authority when he disobeyed. Nevertheless, the authority of Man over creation, and reconciliation with God were restored by the sacrifice of Jesus.
When Jesus began his ministry, He declared: “The Kingdom of God is near” (Matthew 4 v. 17). He wanted to show by these words that it is possible to rise above history and daily life in society, by an understanding and an acceptance of the perspective of the Kingdom of God. There is a fundamental difference between someone who is satisfied with declaring his or Christian faith and another who depends on the intervention and the government of God to run his business (specific teachings of ICCC on this subject are available). The action of the ICCC is based on this distinction; it distinguishes itself by its ambition to bring the perspective of the Kingdom of God to business and to government decisions.
To enter into the perspective of the Kingdom, one must recognise that the Kingdom of God can intervene, or even reign, on Earth here and now. The perspective of the Kingdom is global; it covers all areas of personal and economic life here on Earth.
The Kingdom of God is concerned with daily priorities – in our businesses, our families and our communities – that are determined by our adherence to the principles, initiatives and projects that come from the Throne of God. Jesus asked us to pray that the will of God be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Accomplishing this will presupposes an utter submission to the principles and goals of the Kingdom in our businesses. By focussing on the Kingdom, the biblical principles that free the anointing of God are lit up and put into practice.
Concerning the way of managing money, people and power, the perspective of the Kingdom presupposes a fundamentally different attitude. This different attitude is the result of a regular communion with the Lord. The Kingdom’s perspective – God’s actually – is strategic. It is a powerful guide to daily decisions. In this perspective, the person of the Holy Spirit and the gifts he manifests play a key role. Becoming an ambassador of the Kingdom requires obedience to the way the Kingdom functions. It gives the authority that in turn directs divine power in a coherent manner, and dominates over creation as the Creator wanted it from the beginning. The Word of God is clear: blessings are linked directly to submitting to the principles of the Kingdom.
