THE KINGDOM OF GOD-13 “Jesus’ Message To The World”

October 4, 2020

Matt. 4:23 And Jesus went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the KINGDOM, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people. 

Luke 4:43 He said to them, I must preach the good news of the KINGDOM of GOD to the other cities [and towns] also, for I was sent for this purpose.

Luke 9:60 But Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but as for you, go and proclaim the KINGDOM of GOD.”

What was Jesus’ message to the world?  

  • You must be Born-Again?
  • Love One Another?
  • Put GOD first?
  • Treat others as yourself?
  • Forgiveness?
  • Heaven?

Clearly, Jesus message to the world is to receive and enter The Kingdom of GOD.  The phrase is used 85 times in the Gospels—nearly always by Jesus, in reference to His mission & message!

Jesus did not preach being Born-Again as His message to the world.  Nicodemus asked about The KOG, and Jesus said that being Born-Again was necessary just to SEE and ENTER the K’dom.  We’ve made a mistake telling the world that Jesus’ message is: Getting Trough The Door is The Answer.  It’s like telling young people that The Wedding is the answer to a successful Marriage.  The Wedding is an Event, a Connecting, a Beginning, not a Life. But Marriage is a PURPOSE in life.  Having a Wedding BEGINS the Purpose of 2 people dominating a life together.  So likewise, becoming Born Again BEGINS the Purpose of you and Jesus overcoming the world together.  THAT is the KOG!  

Jesus’ message to the world isn’t a Religious Escape from it.  It’s GOD’s Plan to Retake it!  He said the KOG is like Yeast and your life is the dough waiting for GOD’s K’dom to expand, through all your activities, associations and areas of influence.

The KOG is a Domain you preside over.  Nothing outside of you is bigger than what’s inside of you (1Jn 4:4).  Every day your life is measured in acts of Authority.  Every step in your life is either a forward advance in the KOG or a set back in the KOD.

Rom. 5:17 says we “REIGN in life by Jesus Christ.”

When the Trimbles labor over their family (with 5 children), training their kids in the word, working their family problems out under the authority of GOD’s Word, they are REIGNING in life and Presiding over the expansion of the KOG.  

Isaiah the Prophet said, “ …YOU shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.” —Is. 58:12

Those who receive Jesus’ Message for the World see their entire life as the territory of GOD’s K’dom.   

Rev. 5:10 And You have made them a kingdom (a royal race) and priests to our God, and they shall reign [as kings] over the earth!

The KOG is the only K’dom in which every citizen is considered a King!

John 20:21-22 Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”  Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

Jesus has transferred His Spirit, Power, and Mission to you, making your life a living continuation of His K’dom… You walking in the KOG is Jesus’ Message to the world.
