As an apostolic people in-Christ, we share common experiences with most other people, but we are not Commoners; we are Royalty.
Similarly, we are not survivors in this world, but over-comers who rule and steward the nations with righteousness, subdue evil and prepare the earth for our king to return, heralding in the new age.
