The Messiah, The Ekklesia And The Kingdom Of God (2021)By Paul D. Rapoza
It is most notable that, seeing that there are 110 scriptures in the New Testament that reference the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven, (synonymous) that so very little is said concerning the subject in modern Christianity. The same holds true concerning the concept of Jesus as the Messiah (King) or the concept of the 'called out assembly' known as the Ekklesia in scripture. This ebook is fairly short and not intended to be an extensive study of the subject. If anything let it be in introduction to the reader to spur them on to seeking a better understanding of these things.
The author compiled and edited the parts of this "book" from material he wrote that was for the most part originally, relatively short posts on Facebook. Because they were all to a degree independent posts, they may not fit together as seemlessly as he would like but they are all intergral to the subject at hand. There was an awareness that those posts, at the time, would be far more complete if they were all in one place in some reasonable order. The last section of the book lists 110 scripture that refer to the Kingdom of God.
When anyone hears the word of the KINGDOM, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart... (Matthew 13:19)
