What is the Kingdom of Heaven? How can we understand? Jesus told us “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?” And Job tells us “How can you know the mind of God?” We can’t but the scriptures gives us a guideline to understand.
Many today can’t discern the times, they can’t understand what is transpiring on the earth. That would mean understanding the mind of satan. And we can’t. But we do have the warnings in the scriptures. Using discernment, a clear picture comes into view. Jesus also told us “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Well, if you look at the events unfolding in the world just in the last days, there are tortures, rapes, kidnappings and slaughter of children. Yes, children, Nigeria, Syria, Libya, Iraq, now Israel. And the recent events of our government gathering children from South America. These precious little ones are the Kingdom of Heaven, it belongs to them, that’s how precious they are.
This is very significant, now mankind in it’s evil state is in plain words, messing with the Kingdom of Heaven. Again, God is not ambivolent or ambiguous about this. There is no honor in this, no justice in this, and judgement will be set in place. Are you watching? Are you discerning the times?
There is a beast that the dragon has given power to, that is rising rapidly in the middle east. Are you aware? Do you know what this means?
Daniel had a vision of what would come to pass in the end times, and how the saints (people of God) would be given the judgment to possess the kingdom. “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. 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 everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him”.(Daniel 7 22,27). “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen”.(Revelation 1:16).
Jesus spoke many times how he or his kingdom was not of this world. “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. 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“.(John 18:36,37).
People think the kingdom of God can be easily seen by sight, but the presence of the Holy Spirit manifests the kingdom of God withinus! “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with onservation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you“.(Luke 17:20,21) When one is born again they are delivered out of darkness, and are then partakers of the inheritance od Gods kingdom. “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints of light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”.(Colossians 1:12,13).
Did you know not only did Jesus bring the kingdom of God to this earth, but anyone who has received a miracle can say that the kingdom has truly come near them! “And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you”.(Luke 10:9).
