The Kingdom of the Heavens [NOOK Book]

Overview

The Gospels tell us that Jesus went everywhere preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. This is not the Gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

Overview

The Gospels tell us that Jesus went everywhere preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. This is not the Gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. In fact after more than three years of travelling with Jesus His disciples knew nothing about His coming death, burial and resurrection, what they knew about was the Gospel of the Kingdom.

The primary issue in the Gospels is not how to be saved; it is how to live in the Kingdom. The Gospel of Matthew starts by introducing us to the fact that there are two kings: King Herod and Jesus the King of Israel.King Herod was a descendant of Esau; Jesus was a descendant of Jacob. Jesus was also a descendant of King David. Herod had stolen his kingdom with the help of the Roman Empire. Jesus came to re-establish the Kingdom of David.

When Adam was created he was given rulership of the Garden of Eden. When the children of Israel came out Egypt there were called to be kings and priests. When John wrote to the seven churches he told them that they were to be kings and priests.
When Jesus taught His disciples to pray He told them to pray: Your kingdom come.

But what is the difference between salvation and living in the Kingdom? How do you enter into the Kingdom? How do you live in the Kingdom? What is the ultimate purpose of the Kingdom?

Every believer needs to know the answer to these questions.

Among the topics covered in this book are:
The Authority of the Scriptures
Salvation versus the Kingdom of G-d
The Promise of the Kingdom
When does the Kingdom come?
The Future Kingdom
His Will Be Done
The Rules of the Kingdom
The Constitution of the Kingdom
Character, Conduct and Influence of the Kingdom
Laws of the Kingdom
The Sermon to the Disciples
