Luke 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

“But when the goodness & loving kindness of God our Saviour appeared,… He saved us through Jesus Christ our Saviour so that being justified by grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
Titus 3:4-7

“Heirs according to the hope of eternal life”

This relates to the Kingdom of God that Jesus was sent by God to preach.

The Good News of the Kingdom of God is the availability for all of mankind to enjoy immortality.

John. 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The Greek word for. “Word” is logos which is the basis for true logic

Rabbis know and believe the logic of this word extends and relates to the kingdom.

When the Rabbi reads John 1:1 he knows it relates to God’s plan of the Kingdom.

Jesus Christ is the Logos therefore without Him there is no plan or Kingdom.

In Matthew 5:1-Matthew 8:1 Christ as King reveals to His disciples His manifesto of the purpose He was sent which was to preach the Kingdom of God.

In the following scripture The Lord plainly states the purpose He was sent by God.

Luke 4:43
And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

Before Christ ascended into heaven He spent forty days in His resurrected body teaching the disciples the things concerning the kingdom of God.

Mark 16:15-16
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Today it is up to us to preach the Good News of the immortality promised by Jesus Christ to all who will believe on Him
“Go ye into all the world and preach the Hood News of the Kingdom God.

Kingdom Living Requires a Change of Attitude

Matthew 6:33(KJV) But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will added to you.

Christ made it simple for those who desire to follow His instructions to enter the Kingdom of God.

Christ told his followers they needed a change their perspective of life.

Notice Christ did not say unless we know everything possible about the kingdom of God, we will not be able to be a part of it.

In contrast He said if you just make it your first priority to seek the kingdom and His righteousness, then all the blessings of it will be added to us.

Like everything else the Lord taught, He simplified the message so that those who wanted to know His way of living could understand and apply what He taught to their everyday lives.

By simply seeking first by faith the kingdom of God and His righteousness . . . by making this the desire and focus of our lives then all the things the world is fighting over will be added or given to us. We then will experience the sufficiency of our heavenly Father.

What does the Lord mean by the phrase “and His righteousness”?

His righteousness is simply God’s way of living life which is covered on the Gospels, the book of Acts and church epistles.

After all if we believe He created all life, then surely He must be the ultimate authority on life and how to live it properly and for our greatest blessing.

We know the kingdom of God will not be materially established in this world until some future unknown date. However the Lord came to usher in His kingdom as a living reality for those who would accept and believe His words.

In other words the crux of the matter is the kingdom of God Christ is living God’s way and not the Worlds way.

Christ told His followers the kingdom of God is and hand and is within you therefore this kingdom of God or God’s way of living life is available to all those who accept and believe the words of Christ today.

Christ said that we cannot serve god and Mammon. Or we cannot serve the World and the kingdom of God simultaneously.

The choice is up to each and every individual to either go God’s way or the world’s way and the only way a person can make an intelligent decision is if they have all the information they need to do so.

This is where those who follow Christ come into the picture. Christ said we were to go into the entire world and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to every creature.

Mark 16:15-16 (KJV)
And he said unto them, Go ye into the entire world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

By sharing the Good News of the Kingdom of God with others is the best way the followers of Christ can help this troubled word.

When we do this we become the light and salt of the world.

Good Morning Kingdom Citizens

Acts 1:1-3 (KJV)
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

Some have asked what are the things pertaining to the kingdom of God Jesus spoke of for forty days to His followers?

Briefly off the top of my head here is a short list of what the scriptures teach are the things concerning the kingdom of God:

1. In order to see the kingdom of God a man must be born again from above.
2. In order to enter into the kingdom of God a man must be born of the spirit.
3. Acknowledge the Creator as our Father in heaven.
4. Love God with all of our hearts, soul, mind and strength and love our neighbor as we love ourselves
5. Learn from the various accounts in the Gospels where Christ demonstrated how to live in this world as a kingdom citizen
4. Learn from The Sermon on the Mount from His Manifesto as King what the attitudes of a kingdom citizen are
5. Learn from the Book of Acts how ordinary people you and I became witnesses of the risen glorified king of the Universe. By speaking the Good News they proved by many infallible signs, miracles, and wonders the power of the spoken words of the good news about the kingdom of God
6. Learn from the church epistles how to walk in the spirit via the New Man that was created in you by God in righteousness and true holiness.
7. Learn from the Book of Hebrews how different Jesus The Messiah is from every other creature and what His role is Today in the lives of all who accept Him as Lord.

Acts 8:5-8
Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Over the years it has been my experience in learning about the Kingdom of God that many do not really get it. They do not understand that everything in the scriptures relates in one way of the other to the kingdom of God.

This is especially true about the parables and the Gospels.

One could say that the Kingdom of God is the Big Overall Story of the scriptures.

The Book of Acts is filled with examples of the Saints living a Kingdom lifestyle even under physical persecution.

The Kingdom was real to these people.

They understood the transcendent power of the future kingdom was at work in their lives as they went about preaching the good news of the kingdom.

They shared the message of the kingdom with those around them.

They lived the example of Kingdom Citizens before others. (Acts 2:42-47)

They knew that when they spoke about the Kingdom it released the atmosphere of God’s Rule and thus notable miracles were performed and even Devils were cast out.
(Acts 3:1-12) Acts 8:1-12)

Acts 8:12
But when they believed Philip preaching the THINGS CONCERNING The KINGDOM OF GOD and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

Today those who have seen, heard and understood the things concerning the Kingdom of God have been given a great responsibility to herald forth the message of the kingdom. Like a trumpet to those around us.

Jesus commanded His disciples to Go Ye into all the world and preach the kingdom of God.

Jesus told His disciples in Luke 12:29-32:

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom!

Therefore as Sons of God it should also be our pleasure to give the kingdom to others.

Freely you have received

Freely give!

The Promised Kingdom is Ours

The following is taken from Clarke’s Commentary:

“Luke 12:31
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

“Fear not, little flock – Or, very little flock, το μικρον ποιμνιον. This is what some term a double diminutive, and, literally translated, is, little little flock. Though this refers solely to the apostles and first believers, of whom it was literally true, yet we may say that the number of genuine believers has been, and is still, small, in comparison of heathens and false Christians.It is your Father’s good pleasure – Ευδοκησεν, It hath pleased, etc., though this tense joined with an infinitive has often the force of the present. Our Lord intimated, God has already given you that kingdom which consists in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and has undertaken to protect and save you to the uttermost; therefore, fear not; the smallness of your number cannot hurt you, for omnipotence itself has undertaken your cause.”
