The Gospel of the Kingdom includes salvation, but it’s primarily about becoming a son. More here. The good news is that sons operate in their Father’s purpose and power, they have access to the courts and council of Heaven, and they inherit their Father’s Kingdom (including mountains and nations). The concepts of salvation and church growth are not being left behind, but they are byproducts of a much bigger Kingdom picture. Sons bring heaven to earth, and they are instrumental in the birthing reformation in people, the cultural 7 mountains, and nations. It has always been in God’s heart to work through His Sons – an all-volunteer army. Jesus didn’t give His life just so you could be saved and go to heaven, he paid for your sonship. and the work you will do on earth.
Ps 139:15-16 – My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. NIV
Eph 2:10 – For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. NIV
Sons carry a special anointing (9 of them in fact). It’s so exciting, you’ll want to become one yourself. Sons carry these nine spiritual anointings from heaven as force multipliers or earth that make a huge difference in business. You have been chosen and are invited to co-labor with Father to build His Kingdom. Here’s what those anointings feel like:
Father – The Father anointing pulls sons into their book. Apostolic fathers have a clear characteristic: they help others clarify their book prophetically and help make the dream come true practically. Spiritual fathers see, choose, anoint, ordain, and release sons into their sweet spot.
Note that God is a spirit and so are we (in some sense that we don’t fully grasp). Truthfully our relationship with all nine of these personalities cannot be purely intellectual. These interactions touch our hearts prophetically.
John 4:24 – For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. TLV
Jesus – The redemptive anointing sons carry sets captives free to be themselves in their identity. Sons have the keys to access heaven’s courts and council to fellowship with their Father and see what He is doing so they can do it with Him. Jesus paid a price so that we could be friends, brothers, sons, kings, priests… “family.”
John 1:12 – But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: KJV
Rom 8:14-17 – because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God… Now if we are sons, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ... NIV
Rom 8:28-30 – For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. NIV
Holy Spirit – Sons carry the spirit of God and prophetically release His word and His glory wherever they go. Like Jesus, they have power and authority for signs and wonders and even greater works.
Wisdom – Sons see the purpose and strategy behind what their Father is doing. They can translate heaven to earth and see God’s big picture in governments, businesses, nations, and reformation. They are awake!
Understanding – Sons can translate strategy from wisdom and “understand” tactics. They know how to apply the Father’s purpose in their lives and their business. They can co-labor in both spiritual and practical realms to create miracles in healing and wealth in business. They are in touch with the riches of their inheritance – the Kingdom.
Counsel – Sons make good counselors, mentors, guides, and Fathers because they have access to Heaven’s courts and council. They are part of the strategy of heaven. They see it in heaven first and do it on earth second. The spirit of counsel pulls the curtain back on “my story” and answers the question of how I fit in God’s plan; what is my legacy; Kingdom assignment?
Might / Valor – Sons are God’s valiant ones who have the brazen courage to do great exploits. They are not presumptive or self-assured. They are very confident in their Father’s direction, and they operate in Jesus’ name because they see themselves as part of Heaven’s family and they own their Father’s purpose and plan.
Knowledge – This relational insight into the Father’s heart gives sons the authority for leadership. They are a strength to the weary and the weak; a shoulder to lean on. They know how to lift burdens and get people off the worldly treadmill of working harder and harder to Qualify – for Nothing. Sons know how to soar on eagle’s wings.
Fear of the Lord – Sons see the sonship in other people. Sons can discern the books and callings in the lives of others, and they naturally honor and encourage those gifts and assignments. Sons create a Kingdom culture of honor. They see the good in people who were created in God’s image, and they can help discern what Father has written in their hearts.

Ecclesia and Sons
These links below are both fringe people/groups who question the current concept of church. They probably go too far; their point is the passiveness of the institutional church. But what you can glean from their position is that the ecclesia are sons who have authority to rule in the sense of bringing heaven to earth. I would say it this way, “Sons engage a governmental assembly in the courts and council of Heaven and bring Reformation to the here and now on earth!”
As Long As We Keep Calling The Church The Ecclesia, We Will Neither Produce Or See The Glory! The Church Is An Impostor, A Counterfeit! The True Identity Of The Ecclesia Is The Sons Of God. Only The Sons Carry The D.N.A Of The Father! Everybody Is Not The Ecclesia! God Reserves For Himself A Remnant. Study The Prophetic Nature And Pattern Of The Sons Of Issachar!
This Roman creation called the church does not fit the pattern and never has. We are still trying to force God to accept a perverse, idolatrous, corrupt system that He neither gave birth to nor authorized. Until we accept that God Infused the Blueprint of the Kingdom into the DNA of creation itself, we will never understand Sonship, reveal the glory, or manifest the Kingdom. It will never come through the abominable perversion that religion is calling the church. That is not the Kingdom nor can it produce the Kingdom!
Now, let’s look at the word, “ecclesia”. This Greek word appears in the New Testament approximately 115 times. That’s just in this one grammatical form. It appears also in other forms. And in every instance, except three, it is wrongly translated as “church” in the King James Version. Those three exceptions are found in Acts 19:32, 39, 41. In these instances the translators rendered it “assembly” instead of “church.” But, the Greek word is exactly the same as the other 112 entries where it was changed to “church” wrongly.
In Acts 19, “ecclesia” is a town council: a civil body in Ephesus. Thus, the translators were forced to abandon their fake translation in these three instances. Nonetheless, 112 times they changed it to “church.” This fact has been covered-up under centuries of misuse and ignorance. The Greek word “ecclesia” is correctly defined as: “The called-out (ones)” [ECC = out; KALEO = call]. Thus, you can see how this word was used to indicate a civil body of select (called, elected) people.
According to the Encyclopedia Britannica:
In the New Testament, “ecclesia” (signifying convocation) is the only single word used for church. It (ecclesia) was the name given to the governmental assembly of the city of Athens, duly convoked (called out) by proper officers and possessing all political power including even juridical functions.
Matt 24:45-47 – “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. NIV
1 Cor 6:1-6 – Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? NASU
2 Tim 2:12 – if we endure, we will also reign with him. NIV
Rev 2:26-29 – To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. NIV
Rev. 5:10 – And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth. NKJV
Rev 20:6 – they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. NIV
Verses for Sons and Inheritance
One of God’s biggest initiatives is moving Servants to Sons
Matt 16:15-19 – “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church (ecclesia), and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” NIV

12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. 13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you.

He did this so we would praise and glorify him. NLV
Listen to the way Jesus and Paul said it:

Like their Father God and the firstborn Son (Jesus), we can create and loose His Kingdom on earth. Sons operate in mountains, and their influence goes far beyond sermons. We’re here to redeem nations!
