kingdom = the rule and reign of God over all the earth for all time

- It is misunderstood.
3 Upside Down Kingdom Principles
- Winning comes through Dying (Col 2:13-15; Lk 9:23-25)
- Power should be used under not over. (Mt 20:25-28)
- The least in this world can have the greatest satisfaction (Mt 5:3-12)
