The Kingdom Perspective And Orientation Of The Gospel (Everyday With The Holy Spirit Vol.2) (2018)By Matthew Arin Adams
There is no contention about the possibility of Christ’s coming to set up a Kingdom on earth. The following verses are not parabolic terminologies, but simple and direct to the point. The forerunner of the Master, John the Baptist had this to say at the time of his manifestation to Israel, “…Repent ye for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2) KJV
The Master Jesus Himself confirmed this at the inception of His ministry, by declaring, “Repent ye for the kingdom is at hand” (Matthew 4:17) KJV
And when He sent His disciples to go and preach, He told them what to say, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand: (Matthew 10:7; Luke 9:2) KJV
Why the repeated mention of the Kingdom by our Lord Jesus? The emphasis cannot just be ordinary or accidental. Let us now consider where it is coming from and how relevant it is.
