The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 14…

I hear y’all—-”Why have I never been told this is the Gospel?”

More importantly, now that you have been told, why not believe it! Why not study the Scriptures, now, and believe what you read there?

In light of the references mentioned in the previous part of this series, consider this message given to Joseph: Mt 1:21 “And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.” “Save” – being saved – has to do with the coming kingdom of our Lord and the message He proclaimed! (review Hebrews 2:3 – “how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord…”)Matthew’s account is profoundly full and poignant with the Gospel of the Kingdom. The main focus of chapters 5-7 is the Kingdom:

Mt 5:1 ¶ And when He saw the multitudes, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. 2 And opening His mouth He [began] to teach them, saying, 3 ¶ “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

Mt 5:10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mt 5:19 “Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches [them,] he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses [that] of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Mt 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.

And, please consider the following verse carefully. God says what He means and means what He says. There is nothing to be read between the lines.

Mt 7:21 ¶ “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 13…

There is no gospel without the kingdom. A bold statement, for sure; but the gospel message begins with the kingdom – not His death.Hebrews 2:3 says, “how shall we escape if we neglect so great asalvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,”

Talk about bold language, take a look at this: 1Ti 6:3 “If anyone advocates a different doctrine, and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, 4 he is conceited [and] understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, 5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.”

It behooves us to observe the Lord’s “good news” – His very words and witness. Consider:

Mt 4:17 “From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” And, in verse 23, His message is “gospel of the kingdom.” Mt 4:23 ¶ “And [Jesus] was going about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, andproclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.” His death is not mentioned until chapter 16.

Let’s look at some more:

Mr 1:1 “¶ The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Mr 1:14  And after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent andbelieve in the gospel.”

Lu 4:43 But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose. Why preach to cities? In short, to announce the Good News of a Coming Government upon the shoulders of the very Son of God.

The Good News of the coming Kingdom of God must be received and believed, after one (or a whole city, i.e. Nineveh) has repented. Matthew 13 calls this Gospel like a “seed” – a new beginning – upon four kinds of soil.

For today, let us contemplate, meditate upon, and receive the following in the light of the above references:

Lu 6:46 “And why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 “Everyone who comes to Me, and hears My words, and acts upon them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood rose, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 “But the one who has heard, and has not acted [accordingly,] is like a man who built a house upon the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.” (NASB)

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 12…

Here comes my favorite! I LOVE Hebrews! This gem of a book is plain and simple when one has studied and received the first 11 parts in this series. As you read chapter 2:1-13, you will hear the echos of all the other references you have studied:

Heb 2:1 ¶ For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away [from it.]

2 For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense,

3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,

4 God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.

5 ¶ For He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking.

6 But one has testified somewhere, saying, “WHAT IS MAN, THAT THOU REMEMBEREST HIM? OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT THOU ART CONCERNED ABOUT HIM?

7 “THOU HAST MADE HIM FOR A LITTLE WHILE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS; THOU HAST CROWNED HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR, AND HAST APPOINTED HIM OVER THE WORKS OF THY HANDS;

8 THOU HAST PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET.” For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him.

9 But we do see Him who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, [namely,] Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

10 ¶ For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.

11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one [Father]; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

12 saying, “I WILL PROCLAIM THY NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING THY PRAISE.”

13 And again, “I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM.” And again, “BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME.” (NAS)

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 9…

The apostles & disciples of Jesus preached the kingdom

Matthew 10:5-7These twelveJesus 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

Luke 9:1-2Then he called his twelve disciplestogether, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them topreach the kingdom of God

Luke 10:1,9 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Luke 9:59-60 And he (Jesus) said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

The kingdom that Jesus preached is to be the NT churches message until the kingdom comes at the end of the age

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, evento the end of the age.” Amen.

Mark 16:15 And He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel (of the kingdom) to every creature (Jew and Gentile). 16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved (into the kingdom); but he who does not believe will be condemned.

The same gospel of the kingdom Jesus preached was confirmed unto the NT churches

Hebrews 2:3,5 How shall we (Christians) escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord (the gospel of the kingdom of God), and was confirmed untous (Christians in the NT Church) by them that heard him (the apostles); 5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection [or rulership] the world to come [or the coming habitable earth, Rotherham], whereof we speak.

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 8…

The kingdom of God which Jesus preached referred to Daniel’s prophesy of God’s kingdom on earth

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings [the dignitaries of human government existing at the time of Jesus’ future Coming] shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms (on earth), and it shall stand for ever.

Daniel 7:13,14,18,22,27 I saw in the night visions, and, behold,one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and akingdom,that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, andhis kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlastingkingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Jesus claimed to be “the son of man” that Daniel described as the conquering ruler of the kingdom of God

Mark 14:53,61-65 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses? 64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 7…

Jesus’ preaching of the kingdom of God confirmed the promises made unto the fathers

Romans 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers.

The kingdom of God that Jesus preached referred tothe land promised unto Abraham

Genesis 15:7 Then He said to him (Abraham), “I am the LORD, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.”

Genesis 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the landwherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

Acts 7:2,4-5 And he said, “Brethren and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia…4 “Then he came out of the land of the Chaldeans and dwelt in Haran. And from there, when his father was dead, He moved him to this land in which you now dwell. 5 “And God gave him no inheritance in it, not even enough to set his foot on. But even when Abraham had no child, He promised to give it to him for a possession, and to his descendants after him.

Hebrews 11:13 These all (including Abraham) died in faith, not having received the promises…”

Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 5:21…as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Romans 4:13 The promise to Abraham and his descendants, that they should inherit the world, did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. (RSV)

Matthew 25:31,34 Jesus said, “Whenthe Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

Luke 13:28-29 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, whenye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

Psalm 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:5 Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek: for they shallinherit the earth.”

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 6…

At the center of Jesus Christ’s ministry was the message of the kingdom of God

Luke 4:43 He (Jesus) said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.”

From the beginning…

Mark 1:1;14-15 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; 14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galileepreaching 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 4:17,23 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 23 And Jesuswent about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

Luke 8:1 Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him.

John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life age-lasting life or kingdom life.

To the end

Acts 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion[or suffering & death] by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdomof God:

The Kingdom and Gospel of our Lord, part 4…

THE KINGDOM AND GOSPEL OF OUR LORD, PART 4…

THE PROMISE

1Ki 9:5Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.

1Ch 28:2 Then David the king stood up upon his feet, and said, Hear me, my brethren, and my people: As for me, I had in mine heart to build an house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and for the footstool of our God, and had made ready for the building:

1Ch 28:5 And of all my sons, (for the LORD hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel.

6 And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.

7 Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.

8 Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.

2Ch 9:8 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to beking for the LORD thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do judgment and justice.

The Throne of Israel is the Throne of God – 1Ki 10:9 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.

His Kingdom will not be conducted as the world kingdoms, who fight for prominence or invent social reforms:

Joh 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Joh 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born,and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

  • The New Testament faith is rooted in the hope of Israel.
  • David’s throne must be re-established for Christ to take the throne.
  • David’s throne is never in heaven. It will be in Jerusalem, on earth.

“WHO TEACHES LIKE HIM?” – Listen to Him….

“Who teaches like Him?”  Job 36:22

Listen to Him:  Mt 17:5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!”

What was the message Jesus Christ preached?

Mr 1:14 ¶ And after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (change your beliefs) and believe in the gospel.” 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” (concerning the gospel of the kingdom of God) 21 And they *went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach (the gospel of the kingdom). 22 And they were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 27 And they were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.”

Mt 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Mt 4:23 ¶ And Jesus was going about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.

Lu 8:1 ¶ And it came about soon afterwards, that He began going about from one city and village to another, proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God; and the twelve were with Him,

Why was Jesus sent?

Lu 4:43 But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.”

Ro 15:8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers, (Thus, the reason for a study of Abraham.  The gospel of the kingdom of God (heavens) is revealed through the promises given to the fathers – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David to name a few that we will study.  This is why Jesus came and what He preached.  This is the true gospel.)

The kingdom of God = the promises given to the fathers

1 Corinthians 15:50 “…flesh and blood cannot INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD…”

Hebrews 6:11-12 And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience INHERIT THE PROMISES.

James 2:5 Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to INHERIT the KINGDOM he PROMISED those who love him?(NIV)

And…..to whom shall we go?

Joh 6:68 Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.

Eternal life is in the gospel of the kingdom which contains the promises given to the fathers.

How Long did Jesus Preach the Gospel of the Kingdom?

His whole life on earth:

Ac 1:1 ¶ The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach,  2 until the day when He was taken up, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.  3 To these He also presented Himself alive, after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days, and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.

Ac 1:6 ¶ And so when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?”  7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;

Ac 1:10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them;  11 and they also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

Is the gospel really in the Old Testament?

Mr 1:1 ¶ The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER BEFORE YOUR FACE, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY;  3 THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.'”

Heb 6:11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end,  12 that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.  13 For when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,  14 saying, “I WILL SURELY BLESS YOU, AND I WILL SURELY MULTIPLY YOU.”  15 And thus, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise.

The kingdom was rejected by Israel, and will be realized fully upon His return – which must include a resurrection of the dead.  He is the firstborn from the dead so that He can have many brethren.

The teaching of resurrection was much hated and scorned then – and now!  It means we will have to give an account of our lived lives now; and for some, this is no pleasant thought.  But, concerning Abraham, there is a certain supper where he will be present in his resurrected body:

Mt 8:11 “And I say to you, that many shall come from east and west, and recline [at the table] with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven;

Mt 22:32 ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

Mr 12:26 “But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the [passage about the burning] bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB’?

Lu 13:28 “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth there when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves being cast out.

An incorruptible body is required to inherit:

1Co 15:49-58  And just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.  50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.  51 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.  53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.  54 But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory.  55 “O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?”  56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law  57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ  58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
