The Kingdom of Heaven
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbiden them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew19:14
What is the Kingdom? Those with some background in the Bible might speak of the Millennium, the Lord's future 1000 year reign. That wonderful time is the future aspect of the Kingdom. But what about before then? King Nebuchadnezzar - the world's most supreme monarch - was told that "heaven rules." Paul spoke of the Lord as "The King", yet He is never called the King of the Church! Why? Because we as part of the Church are in a higher relationship than subjects of a Sovereign! We are seen as soon as sons and as His Bride! He is our Lord, the Head of His body!
Matthew 13 gives quite a history of the Kingdom in mystery (previously-unknown) form! It applies today and goes on into the future. Mr. Ridout gives a full accounting of this wonderful chapter! You'll see it speaks of profession compared to the reality of the Church! This key unlocks many of the "uncertain" verses of Scripture! Enjoy!
