ACCURATE BIBLE KNOWLEDGE!

QUESTION: “HOW DO I TEACH THE BOOK OF MATTHEW?”

ANSWER: “VERY SIMPLY …

                  THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NOT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!”


 1. John the Baptist preaches that the kingdom of heaven is coming (Matt 3:1-2)

2. Firstly, Christ preaches that the kingdom of heaven has arrived with the kingdom gospel of the Sermon on the Mount (Matt chapters 5-7)

3. Secondly Christ also preaches the kingdom of God is coming AFTER the cross (Mark 1:14-15) … which is preached by Paul.

4. Paul preaches the kingdom of God has arrived with direct entry into heaven.

John turns Israel back to God in preparing them for Christ and his coming with the kingdom of heaven, to be physically set up on earth. This is called the gospel of the kingdom with the impossible to keep set of rules and regulations of the Sermon on the Mount (Matt chapters 5-7).

If Israel will continuously believe (every second of the day) that Christ, as Israel’s representative, can perfectly fulfil the requirements of the Sermon on the Mount, on their behalf, PLUS continue with blood sacrifices every day for their past sins, they can enter Abraham’s bosom upon death.

After the cross, Christ will come and take them into heaven.

For 2,000 years since the cross, man can enter the kingdom of God directly by believing JUST ONCE, that Christ perfectly fulfilled of the conditions of the Sermon on the Mount plus Christ shed his perfect blood for not only past sins … but future sins.

As Christ is now seated in heaven beside the Father, the Christian being in Christ, is also spiritually in heaven.
