What is Kingdom Domain? It is a five day school where people gather together to learn more about the kingdom of God and how it operates. It is also a time of breakthrough and deliverance. It happens at the beginning of every year usually at a certain location where people come from all over the world. This year we held this school conference in Seattle, Washington. It was both a beautiful and life changing experience. There were a few guest speakers teaching about healing, God’s kingdom, and how the spiritual realm works. One of the speakers, Ben Fitzgerald, spoke about fear of man’s opinion. This fear is big in our culture, especially when it comes to being obedient to the voice of God. A lot of the times we value others’ opinions about ourselves more than how God truly views us. When God first called Ben Fitzgerald to the ministry he now has, which is Awakening Europe, he struggled with that fear, but God set him free! Through Ben, God sets many others free from that fear! Now with that fear eliminated we can step into freedom to be our true selves and walk out the destiny He has prepared for both you and me.
Fear is evident in our world today and it takes on many forms. One of them is fearing the opinions of people. Struggling with this type of fear takes away our focus from God and puts the attention on how we sound and look. In Proverbs 29:25 it says, “It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.” (GN translation). There are times when God tells us to do something and fear stops us from obeying His voice. That fear compromises our relationship with God and what He wants to do through us. In the Bible, 2 Timothy 1, it states “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” The truth is, God does not want us to live in fear and worry about what others think of us. He wants us to know our identity in Him, that we are sons and daughters of the one true King! When we truly know and believe who we are in God, His truth will set us free.
This was the recurring theme throughout the conference, breaking off fear of man’s opinion. There was a lot of freedom and breakthrough in everyone! The Spirit of God broke out on the old and the young and many people received freedom. People began to worship more freely! They started to dance and shout for Jesus. They did not care what people thought, all they wanted to do was worship their King! When God himself places a desire on your heart, for example, to sing a song to Him surrounded by hundreds of people, and you begin to sing as if He is the only one in the room, that is what freedom looks like. Being obedient to the small things God is calling you to do sets you free from that fear.
Hearing what God was doing through the teens was so beautiful and inspiring. The freedom that they received truly changed them and they began to apply it in their life. Kayla and her friend Angie went with a teen leader to get some Dutch Bros and as they drove up to order, Kayla felt it in her heart to pray for one of the workers. She was also a believer and when Kayla asked to pray for her, she got really excited and opened up about what she was going through in that season. Kayla listened to what God wanted to do through her and she stepped out in boldness not fearing what people will think of her.
God also healed many people from pain, sickness, mental disorders, and even emotional pain. One testimony of how God moved in that place was Polina. Polina struggled with insomnia for a few months until she encountered God’s healing power and she was set free. Another healing God did was in Alla. She had sharp pain in her ankle for six months and after one of the services someone prayed for her and the pain instantly left!
That week was a beautiful time spent serving and loving one another. We truly saw God move in a new and powerful way, where God’s spirit was encountering people all over the room. God came in and took us into new levels of His glorious presence! It was an unforgettable time and it has definitely impacted many people’s lives and they are never going to be the same again! Thank you to everyone who served and invested their finances, support, and prayers into this conference. It has planted seeds that will produce fruit in many lives! If you want to experience the move of God in your life I would encourage you to join us next year!
