According to Dr. Myles Munroe, after many years of being in ministry, he heard God tell him to stop preaching all he has spent so many years preaching and focus on preaching the message of the Kingdom. In obedience to that, he instructed the staff of his ministry to burn all the DVDs of previous messages that were not on the kingdom and he started a lifelong journey of preaching messages solely on the kingdom.
The result of this is the Myles Munroe we know today. He has written several books on the subject of the kingdom and in this article, I have listed the 10 best books written by Dr. Myles Munroe on the subject of the Kingdom.
Books on the Kingdom by Myles Munroe
1. Rediscovering the Kingdom
Rediscovering the Kingdom is the first book by Dr. Myles Munroe anyone should read on the subject of the kingdom. In this book, he introduces the idea of God’s kingdom to humanity in general and takes Christians away from their religion, doctrines, and false beliefs to bring them back into God’s original idea.
2. Kingdom Principles
It’s not enough to be aware of God’s idea of the kingdom. To truly live in the reality of the kingdom, you must understand the guiding laws by which the kingdom of God operates. Unlike the rules that humans have set that limit our potential, God has some expectations and laid-down laws that are requisite for the attainment of results in the kingdom. This is what Kingdom Principles seeks to teach the reader. It is a comprehensive book on the principles that guide operation in God’s kingdom.
3. Applying the Kingdom
The kingdom is not an idea that should only be taught or one that should be applied only in the confines of the church. In this book, Applying the Kingdom, Dr. Myles teaches the reader how to take the kingdom into the corporate world, and how to thrive in non-christian circles and be true ambassadors of the kingdom of God.
4. The Purpose and Power of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit, according to Dr. Myles Munroe, is the most important person on earth because His assignment is to help Christians in leaving the life of God’s kingdom on earth. The Holy Spirit teaches and guides everyone into staying within the confines of God’s original idea, Dr. Myles teaches in The Purpose and Power of the Holy Spirit who the Holy Spirit is and who he is not, he explains the assignment of the Holy Spirit and teaches Christians not to leave their assignment for the Holy Spirit.
5. Reclaiming God’s Original Purpose for Your Life
God’s purpose for every individual is a kingdom purpose. However, because of what is taught in society and the media, it is almost natural for every individual, even children of God, to get committed to other assignments that are not God’s assignment for their life.
In Reclaiming God’s Original Purpose for Your Life, Dr. Myles Munroe teaches that the purpose of our creation has been stolen, and there is a need to reclaim that purpose. After reading this book you will have direction as to what to live for and what to die for.
6. Rediscovering Faith
The kingdom of God is a kingdom that operates by faith. To rediscover the kingdom, you need to rediscover faith because God cannot operate outside the confines of faith. Also, his Kingdom does not operate outside faith.
Faith is one of the cardinal principles of the Kingdom of God and that is what Rediscovering Faith seeks to teach. God created us with faith which we lost but with this book, Dr. Myles Munroe takes the reader through a journey that will help them live the life of faith just as it should be in God’s Kingdom.
7. Understanding Your Place In God’s Kingdom
Some assignments are general to every citizen of the kingdom but as an individual, you also have a unique place in God’s Kingdom. Understanding Your Place In God’s Kingdom will teach you your place as a human and your place as a unique individual in God’s Kingdom. It will not only give you understanding, but it will also give you purpose.
8. Kingdom Citizenship
Being a citizen of the kingdom of God means you have some rights, privileges, roles, and expectations that God has set. That is what Kingdom Citizenship explores. After reading this book, you will know what to expect as a citizen of God’s kingdom and what is expected of you. The laws, rights, and jurisdictions of the citizens of God’s Kingdom are all explained in this book.
9. The Glory of Living
Dr. Munroe skillfully removes the religious hyperbole from the term “glory,” replacing it with phrases that will lead you into the Lord’s tremendous Presence. The Glory of Living not only teaches you about the power of glory but also shows you how God desires to see His glory mirrored in man.
10. Rediscovering Kingdom Worship
Dr. Myles Munroe takes you deep into praise and worship as he unveils the purpose and power of God’s presence — the set ideal environment in which humankind was created to function. Dr. Myles Munroe lays out sound, time-tested ideas for dealing with the thorny subject of praise and worship. You will learn why man was placed in the Garden of Eden by God, the meaning and importance of God’s presence, and the seven facets of praise.
11. The Purpose And Power of Prayer
This is supposed to be a list of the 10 best books on the kingdom by Dr. Myles Monroe but I decided to add this 11th book because it teaches a subject that is very crucial to the application of all the lessons learned in the 10 books. The Purpose And Power of Prayer teach kingdom-minded people how to enforce the reality of the kingdom here on earth.
The kingdom of God is here but God’s people still haven’t captured the idea. There are so many misconceptions about God’s Kingdom even among respected ministers and that is causing a lag in God’s program. After getting one of these books for yourself, get one for a teacher of the Word or someone who influences people. That will speed up the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth.
