Description

TAKING THE KINGDOM BY FORCE

 

JESUS WAS OUR EXAMPLE IN THIS EARTH RIM.  HE CAME THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  HE CAME TO EARTH TO BRING US BACK INTO UNION WITH GOD.  JESUS DEMONSTRATED THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD RULES OVER EVERYTHING, AND HE TAUGHT US THAT THE VIOLENT TAKE “THE KINGDOM BY FORCE”.

 

MATTHEW 11:1-12

(1.)  AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JESUS HAD MADE AN END OF COMMANDING HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES, HE DEPARTED THENCE TO TEACH AND TO PREACH IN THEIR CITIES.

 

(2.)  NOW WHEN JOHN HAD HEARD IN THE PRISON THE WORKS OF CHRIST, HE SENT TWO OF HIS DISCIPLES,

 

(3.)  AND SAID UNTO HIM, ART THOU HE THAT SHOULD COME, OR DO WE LOOK FOR ANOTHER;

 

(4.)  JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, GO AND SHEW JOHN AGAIN THOSE THINGS WHICH YOU DO HEAR AND SEE:

 

(5.)  THE BLIND RECEIVE THEIR SIGHT, AND THE LAME WALK, THE LEPERS ARE CLEANSED, AND THE DEAF HEAR, THE DEAD ARE RAISED UP, AND THE POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM.

 

(6.)  AND BLESSED IS HE, WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT BE OFFENDED IN ME.

 

(7.)  AND AS THEY DEPARTED, JESUS BEGAN TO SAY UNTO THE MULTITUDES CONCERNING JOHN,  WHAT WENT YE OUT INTO THE WILDERNESS TO SEE?  A REED SHAKEN WITH THE WIND?

 

(8.)  BUT WHAT WENT YE OUT FOR TO SEE?  A MAN CLOTHED IN SOFT RAIMENT?  BEHOLD, THEY THAT WEAR SOFT CLOTHING ARE IN KINGS’ HOUSES.

 

(9.)  BUT WHAT WENT YE OUT FOR TO SEE?  A PROPHET?  YEA, I SAY UNTO YOU, AND MORE THAN A PROPHET.

 

(10.)  FOR THIS IS HE, OF WHOM IT IS WRITTEN, BEHOLD I SEND MY MESSENGER BEFORE THY FACE, WHICH SHALL PREPARE THY WAY BEFORE THEE.

 

(11.)  VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, AMONG THEM THAT ARE BORN OF WOMEN THERE HATH NOT RISEN A GREATER THAN JOHN THE BAPTIST:  NOTWITHSTANDING HE THAT IS LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS GREATER THAN HE.

 

(12.)  AND FROM THE DAYS OF JOHN THE BAPTIST UNTIL NOW THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN SUFFERETH VIOLENCE, AND THE VIOLENT TAKE IT BY FORCE.

 

JESUS TAUGHT US TO PRAY

 

MATTHEW 6:9-10

 

(9.)  AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE:  OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME. 

(10.)  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

 

JESUS WAS TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL

 

LUKE 4:1-6

(1.)  AND JESUS BEING FULL OF THE HOLY GHOST RETURNED TO JORDAN, AND WAS LED BY THE SPIRIT INTO THE WILDERNESS.

(2.)  BEING FORTY DAYS TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL.  AND IN THOSE DAYS HE DID EAT NOTHING:  AND WHEN THEY WERE ENDED, HE AFTERWARD HUNGERED.

(3.)  AND THE DEVIL SAID UNTO HIM, IF THOU BE THE SON OF GOD, COMMAND THIS STONE THAT IT MAY BE MADE BREAD.

(4.)  AND JESUS ANSWERED HIM, SAYING, IT IS WRITTEN, THAT MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD.

(5.)  AND THE DEVIL, TAKING HIM UP INTO AN HIGH MOUNTAIN, SHEWED UNTO HIM ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD IN A MOMENT OF TIME.

(6.)  AND THE DEVIL SAID UNTO HIM, ALL THIS POWER WILL I GIVE THEE, AND THE GLORY OF THEM, FOR THAT IS DELIVERED UNTO ME; AND WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE IT….

 

THE DEVIL USES DISOBEDIENT PEOPLE TO BUILD HIS KINGDOM

 

2ND THESSALONIANS 2:8-10

(8.)  AND THEN SHALL THAT WICKED BE REVEALED, WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH, AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING;

 

(9.)  EVEN HIM, WHOSE COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF SATAN WITH ALL POWER AND SIGNS AND LYING WONDERS.

 

(10.)  AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH; BECAUSE THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.
