Description

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!

 

IT IS EVIDENT WHEN WE READ THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN AND PARTS OF ACTS.  THE MOST DOMINANT SUBJECT IS, “THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN”, THE GOSPEL THAT JOHN THE BAPTIST PREACHED, AND THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF PREACHED, AND THE 12 APOSTLES WERE COMMISSIONED TO PREACH, WAS, “THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.”

 

MATTHEW 3:1-3

(1.)  IN THOSE DAYS CAME JOHN THE BAPTIST, PREACHING IN THE WILDERNESS OF JUDEA,

(2.)  AND SAYING, REPENT YE: FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.

(3.)  FOR THIS IS HE THAT WAS SPOKEN OF BY THE PROPHET ESAIAS, SAYING, THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.

 

MARK 1:14-15

(14.)  NOW AFTER THAT JOHN WAS PUT IN PRISON, JESUS CAME INTO GALILEE, PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

(15.)  AND SAYING, THE TIME IS FULFILLED, AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND, REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL.

 

MATTHEW 10:5-?

(5.)  THESE TWELV 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,

(6.)  BUT GO RATHER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.

(7.)  AND AS YE GO, PREACH, SAYING, THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.

(8.)  HEAL THE SICK, CLEANSE THE LEPERS, RAISE THE DEAD, CAST OUT DEVILS; FREELY YE HAVE RECEIVED, FREELY GIVE.

(9.)  PROVIDE NEITHER GOLD, NOR SILVER, NOR BRASS IN YOUR PURSES,

(10.)  NOR SCRIP FOR YOUR JOURNEY, NEITHER TWO COATS, NEITHER SHOES, NOR YET STAVES, FOR THE WORKMAN IS WORTHY OF HIS MEAT…….

 

IN THE MESSAGE ON THE MOUNT THE BLESSED PROSPECT OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WAS ADDRESSED:

 

MATTHEW 5:1-3

(1.)  AND SEEING THE MULTITUDES, HE WENT UP INTO A MOUNTAIN:  AND WHEN HE WAS SET, HIS DISCIPLES CAME UNTO HIM:

(2.)  AND HE OPENED HIS MOUTH, AND TAUGHT THEM, SAYING,

(3.)  BLESS ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT:  FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN…

 

MATTHEW 5:20

(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.

 

MATTHEW 6:8-12

(8.)  BE NOT YE THEREFORE LIKE UNTO THEM:  FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM.

(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.

(11.)  GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.

(12.)  AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS, AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS.

 

EVEN AFTER HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD, HE STILL PREACHED THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

 

ACTS 1:1-8

(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 APOSTLE WHOM HE HAD CHOSEN:

(3.)  TO WHOM ALSO HE SHWED 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:

(4.)  AND, BEING ASSEMBLED TOGETHER WITH THEM, COMMANDED THEM THAT THEY SHOULD NOT DEPART FROM JERUSALEM, BUT WAIT FOR THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER, WHICH, SAITH HE, HAVE HEARD OF ME.

(5.)  FOR JOHN TRULY BAPTIZED WITH WATER; BUT YE SHALL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY GHOST NOT MANY DAYS HENCE.

(6.)  WHEN THEY THEREFORE WERE COME TOGETHER, THEY ASKED OF HIM, SAYING, LORD, WILT THOU AT THIS TIME RESTORE AGAIN THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?

(7.)  AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW THE TIMES OR THE SEASONS, WHICH THE FATHER HATH PUT IN HIS OWN POWER.

(8.)  BUT YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER, AFTER THAT THE HOLY GHOST IS COME UPON YOU:  AND YE SHALL BE WITNESSES UNTO ME BOTH IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA, AND IN SAMARIA, AND UNTO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH.
