THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
« on: April 03, 2020, 08:35:56 am »
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The kingdom of heaven is not in heaven, it is the thousand year reign of Christ on earth (Revelation 20:4-6).

1 Chronicles 29:11 Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

The kingdom of God includes heaven and earth. The body of Christ will be in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6), and Israel will be on earth in the kingdom (Revelation 5:10 Deuteronomy 4:40).

Matthew 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

The kingdom of heaven promised Israel had requirements for entrance.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

For believing Israel to enter the kingdom on earth, they had to do his will (John 6:40 Revelation 22:14).

Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The twelve were sent to preach the gospel of the kingdom to Israel, that the kingdom of heaven was at hand (Mark 1:14-15 Matthew 4:23 Luke 9:6).

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

The twelve, the disciples, were given understanding in regard to the kingdom, which was conveyed by Jesus in parables (Matthew 13:24).

Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

All things will be gathered in Christ; All things in heaven and earth. If it were already just one kingdom in heaven, what would be gathered together?
