KAI is an embassy of Kingdom ambassadors and other Kingdom minded individuals whose sole mission is to promote the interests and values of the Government of Heaven, and to establish a community of Kingdom citizens here on earth that will accurately reflect and intelligently represent the very nature and character of our Eternal King Jesus.
There is a strong apostolic-prophetic component and dimension to our embassy that allows us to penetrate the dark shroud of the old religious order with new revelation, understanding and wisdom that will elevate a new awareness of God’s Kingdom in the earth, as well as new patterns and mentalities as we usher in a new season of reform.
We believe that reformation must first begin within us before it can be fully demonstrated through us. Reformation must first begin in the Church before any transformation can be seen in the world. There must be a new apostolic and prophetic release of wisdom and revelation that will purge the Church of all the defiling elements and poor values that we have inherited since its degenerative lapse – or rather, fall – into the dark ages. Our outdated religious systems, strategies, paradigms, traditions and practices must be altered and changed – and in most cases, totally discarded – if we are to accommodate the new wine and Kingdom architecture that the Holy Spirit is releasing to those who can accurately discern His voice.
While the primary anointing of KAI is both apostolic and prophetic in nature and function, we believe that the ministries of the evangelist, pastor and teacher are just as necessary, important and valuable for the Church to be matured and Jesus to be manifested in all His fullness. We not only welcome, but celebrate the relationship and participation of those with diverse giftings, callings and abilities from our own. We believe that true unity is not necessarily found in conformity but in our commitment to fulfill a common purpose, vision or goal.
We believe that the only valid architectural blueprint, design and pattern for the Church today is not to be apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral or instructional (teaching), but one that encompasses all of the above. King Jesus is not building Himself an “apostolic church”, “prophetic church”, “faith church”, “deliverance church” or any other name, description or title we may choose to use. King Jesus is building “My Church” – a Church that will not be limited by human definitions or insufficiencies – but one that demonstrates the fullness of His Kingdom where all of these various elements can be found. It is a Kingdom Community that is multifaceted in its gifts, anointing and approach to ministry.
A true Kingdom Community, therefore, welcomes diversity and is defined by a common unity (common unity = community), even in the midst of its diverse ethnicity and culture; relating to each other with mutual respect, honor and accountability, and caring for each other through practical demonstrations of love the same way that Christ cares for His Church.
The Kingdom Concept
What we are presenting to you today is not another religion. We’ve all experienced religion in one form or another, and there is not one of us who is any better because of it. In fact, if anything, religion has left many of us in a far worse state and condition than we were before. That’s because dead, dry religious forms, structures and practices are incapable of producing the power necessary to cause a genuine and lasting transformation in our lives from the inside.
The first man, Adam, never practiced any religion. God never created Adam to worship or function within an earthly religious system or context. Therefore, Adam never fell from religion. Religion is incapable of meeting man’s basic need.
Jesus’ main purpose for coming to earth and dying on the cross was not to redeem us from sin just so we could go to heaven, but to empower us through a new identity for Kingdom living now. Man was actually created to live and operate from within two worlds at once. These two worlds – heaven and earth – however, were so seamlessly connected and intertwined in the garden of Eden that they were virtually indistinguishable. When man sinned and fell, it created a separation, dichotomy, chasm and barrier so vast that man would forever be relegated – apart from the finished work of Jesus Christ and Him creating a way for us – to a very low, carnal and earthly dimension of living separated from God and His realm.
Jesus is referred to in Scripture as the “last Adam” (1 Cor. 15:45) because He came to restore that dimension of heaven that Adam lost. He is referred to as “the way” in John 14:6 because He came to restore access not only to God our Father and Eternal King, but also to His Kingdom. There is no Kingdom without the King and there is no King without the Kingdom.
While there has been a popular teaching with regard to the Kingdom, one that we previously held to and taught ourselves before we obtained more understanding and insight from God regarding this subject, that Adam never fell from heaven, this is not entirely correct. If your understanding of heaven, however, is of some place beyond the far reaches of the stars and the vastness of space, then this makes perfect sense. But heaven is not related to time and space; it refers to the place or dimension where God resides.
A careful study of the Genesis account and the garden of Eden (which is beyond the scope of this essay to examine in any detail) will provide more than sufficient proof that this garden was actually a portal into another realm or dimension called heaven. Adam was actually in heaven while still residing here on earth. Therefore, when Adam fell, he did, in fact, fall from heaven. Even the word fall confirms this fact. It carries the idea of a lowering, descending and declension. Obviously Adam didn’t fall from the earth because man is still on it and is in every sense of the word, earthly or carnal; so the obvious implication is that man fell from a higher, loftier place called heaven.
Some claim Adam only fell from a place of dominion, but even this is not entirely correct. Adam was only able to exercise dominion in the earth because he lived and operated from a higher spiritual realm – heaven! You can’t exercise dominion from an earthly dimension. If you don’t believe me, try it! Therefore, when Adam fell from this heavenly dimension, his dominion was lost. True dominion is inseparably linked to heavenly (Kingdom) occupation.
This is why Jesus preached only one message: “Repent (i.e. re – prefix meaning go back and pent – like pent house; meaning top. In other words, get back on top to that heavenly dimension that you lost) for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (within reach)” (Matt. 4:17).
To repent or get back on top means that we have to change our thinking and make a mental shift or migration from a worldly or religious mentality to an understanding of the Kingdom of heaven and how it operates. We no longer seek to “get to heaven one day when I die”, but seek to access the Kingdom of heaven here in the now (Matt. 11:12) so that we can effectively establish God’s Kingdom in the earth where heaven becomes a reality here NOW — “Thy Kingdom come” (Matt. 6:10). You can’t establish heaven on earth unless you have accessed heaven yourself. God’s original intent has always been to return us to the garden of Eden model where heaven and earth are so seamlessly connected that earth becomes a physical manifestation of the spiritual reality of heaven (Matt. 6:10).
It is time for God’s people to be liberated from being slaves of religion to become royal citizens of an eternal Kingdom. It is time to stop being a wilderness walker and become a Canaan conqueror. We must begin to embrace our true identity and calling, for the Kingdom of Heaven has arrived.
What is an ambassador?
An ambassador is one who is sent as an official messenger or representative of a sovereign or State. He becomes the embodiment of that nation, state or country who sends him to the people or nation to whom he is sent. In other words, when an ambassador speaks, he doesn’t speak of his own or voice his own opinions because he doesn’t represent himself. When he speaks or acts, he does so on behalf of the nation or government he represents. It is as if the king or sovereign himself were speaking or acting.
As you can see, this is not a religious title, but a name that is given to those specially appointed by the king or sovereign — not by vote — to walk in a high level of power, authority and governmental influence. You do not earn this rank by an academic degree or a recommendation by the people. It is only by sovereign appointment.
God is raising up many Kingdom ambassadors in this hour to reveal the truths of His Kingdom. They are not concerned with religious titles, and they are not motivated by a “my church”, “my ministry”, “my fame and recognition”, self-promoting, self-exalting and self-seeking mentality that we see so much of today. They are representatives not of themselves, a church, ministry or network, but of an eternal Kingdom, and their mission is to see it fully manifest on the earth. Are you one of them?
