(the below are summations of each verse, please go to the actual verse and passage and reach it in its entirety)
The Kingdom of Heaven is AT HAND
Repent and believe in the Gospel, the Kingdom of God is At Hand.
Matthew 10:7 “and as you go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is At Hand’.”
Here what is the meaning of Repent? It means To Change Your Mind! So here in these messages are saying – stop thinking the Kingdom of heaven, or of God is somewhere else. Change Your Mind!!!
The Kingdom of Heaven is WITH IN US! God has chosen to partner with us. We do not need to ask where is it, who gets in, when will it come, all of the above.
Luke 17:21 “Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdome of God would come, He answered to them and said, “The Kingdom of God does NOT come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ Or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU.”
We have so misunderstood these verses, such as there is judgement coming. This word Repent in these verses ::: means change our Mind as to where the Kingdom really is. We have the opportunity to participate – we need to stop asking all these questions -
WOW – WOW – WOW
So how do we build the Kingdom? Here are three ways, not all the ways – but three ways to discuss :::
FIRST : we build the Kingdom with PRAYER.
Matthew 6:9- starts here
SECOND:: Giving. Giving of ourselves, our time, our resources, and our love
Mark 10:18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23.
THIRD ::: Serving.
Mark 12:28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34
It is as if there is a thin vail between us and the Kingdom. Lets take our swords and punch holes in that vail – all week – lets reach out and shine Kingdom light everywhere we can. The Net Result Will Be Us as a collective body of Christ bring the Kingdom here, right here, right now – lets touch and agree
Let Us Pray Today this Ancient Prayer :::
God would You bless us today with discomfort, would You bless us with discomfort at - easy answers, half-truths, superficial relationships.
Would You bless us with discomfort in staying right where we are and not moving forward with You.
God would You bless us with anger, bless us with anger of injustice, of oppression, of exploitation of people God.
Father God, we know that hurts Your heart and it should hurt ours just as much Lord. Let us be the ones who work for justice and freedom and peace.
God would You bless us with tears, will You bless us with tears that we shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger, and war; so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and help turn their pain into joy.
God would You bless us Holy Naivety, the Holy Naivety that causes us to believe we can make a difference in this world, so we can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to a hurting world around us Lord.
Lord may we take our swords, and collectively punch holes in the vail, and may we see the Kingdom of Heaven right here on Earth!
In the name of the Father, and the Son, Amen!
