“The Kingdom of Heaven is our inheritance.


“The Kingdom of Heaven is our inheritance.

“From the beginning, God’s original purpose and plan was to rule the earth from Heaven through His family of humankind. He created man for this very reason. Man’s original purpose was to dominate the earth through Kingdom influence. God’s strategy for accomplishing this was to establish a colony of Heaven on earth. His intention was to influence the earth from Heaven so that the earth would begin to take on the culture of Heaven. In this manner, the influence of the invisible heavenly Kingdom would permeate, fill, and cover the visible physical earthly realm.
A kingdom, as we have already seen, is “the governing influence of a king over his territory, impacting it with his will, his intent and his purpose, manifesting that impact through the development of a culture that is manifested in its citizens. In other words, every kingdom manifests itself in the lifestyle and culture of its people. This means that every citizen of a kingdom is supposed to take on the nature of the king. “God’s intent for us as Kingdom citizens is that we take on the culture of Heaven so that in whatever we do or say it will be evident that we belong to the Kingdom of Heaven. That is why we don’t use foul language or lie or cheat or practice deceit or give way to jealousy or hatred. Those things are not part of Heaven’s culture and therefore are foreign to us. As Kingdom citizens we are from God’s country and “both our language and our lifestyle should reflect that.

“God wants us to have the Kingdom, and Jesus is the way in.


“God wants us to have the Kingdom, and Jesus is the way in.

“The New Testament proclaims all kinds of “good news” (gospel, evangelion). The good news that Jesus preached, and that we should preach, is that the Kingdom of God has come to earth and, through Jesus, we can all become part of it.
We have gotten so sidetracked on secondary “and peripheral issues. It seems that the message of the Kingdom has all but disappeared. There is no doubt that Jesus Christ died on the cross that we might be forgiven of our sins and find eternal life in Him. There is also no doubt that we need to tell people that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that He is the only way to eternal life. All of this is part of the message of the Kingdom, but it is not all of the message. The cross of Christ is the beginning point of life in the Kingdom of God, not the ending point. There is no ending point, because life in the Kingdom has no end.

“Our problem is that we spend so much time telling people how to get into the Kingdom that we rarely teach them what to do once they get inside. Often we don’t know ourselves because no one has ever taught us, either. We spend so much time preaching about the door that we forget all about the palace behind it. “We need to get back on track preaching the gospel that Jesus told us to preach—the good news of the Kingdom of God come to earth. God wants us to have the Kingdom, and Jesus is the way in. Jesus Himself said, “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32). Think of it! Our Father is pleased to give us the Kingdom. It is what He wants to do. It is what He has intended from the very beginning.
If we think of the Kingdom of God as a glorious palace or mansion, we have totally missed the message. We are stuck at the door. What is the purpose of a door? It provides entry into the house or into the different rooms of the house. In the same way, Jesus provides us with entry into the Father’s Kingdom. Jesus said, “I am the Way.” A door is a portal through which we pass from one place to another. Jesus is the door through which we pass from death “into life, from darkness into light, from guilt into pardon, from shame into joy, from strife into peace, and from defeat into victory. Such is the contrast between the kingdom of the world and the Kingdom of God.
