We need to get back to the true Message Jesus brought from the Holy Father and the reason is because of the greatest message Jesus brought and that message was not only that He became our eternal sacrifice but because of the reason He gave His life for us. Satan has presented false teachings into the Christian religion because he does not want us knowing about the true fantastic message Jesus brought. Notice that the teaching of going to heaven after death is void of what we will be doing for eternity? But Jesus message of the coming Kingdom that is recorded in the bible will come down to this earth and Jesus taught that those that accept Him and His teachings will have a part in His kingdom! (Be sure to check out the study at the end of this paper about going to heaven for the truth as taught from the bible.)

Jesus preached the Kingdom of God which was the precise message that God the Holy Father sent Him to preach. It is important to note that Jesus started His ministry with this very important statement; recorded in Mark 1:14-15. "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." (You might want to hear the sermon titled "The New Covenant" as taught from the book of Hebrews.) Although this message was preached by the prophets of old such as Isaiah. Jesus revealed that we can not only be a part of it, but how we can be a part of the Kingdom of God! Many ministers teach that we go to heaven at death but is that what Jesus taught? Jesus taught that we must be saved from our sins so we can enter the coming Kingdom, which Jesus is now busy preparing for us and will bring back to this earth with Him at His second coming and is a very important part of the Gospel message, as you will see. ( See our study titled "What happens after death.") The preaching of the coming Kingdom of God is very complex and as disciples of the Messiah we need to be able to correctly teach this very important subject along with the teaching that we are saved by our reliance on the blood sacrifice of the Messiah. Yes, Jesus is the way (The door) by the blood He shed on the stake of suffering, but, the way to what? A New life? Yes, but a new life where?

The word disciple in the Greek means "a learner, or pupil" We should never think we will spend years, and years just going to church listing to a preacher on subjects of his choosing and never thinking we too must teach these truths to others. How much more would we be attentive to the minister if we knew we would be accountable for teaching others also? This does not necessarily mean we all should become ministers standing up in front of a group of brethren preaching. All do not have the same gifts, or the same areas of responsibility as we see pointed out in Rom 12:4-5. "For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another." (NKJ throughout) The point is that we should know why we believe what we do and be able to give an answer to others that may ask.

Many don't understand that the Christian religion became pagan hundreds of years ago and we find the true church (congregation of the Messiah) taken over even before the Apostle Paul's death. Some may ask where is the true congregation of the Messiah? The answer is in those that are called and chosen by the Holy Father and they walk among the sleeping church every day. Many will read about the ten virgins, or the fact that there are tares among the wheat or the parable concerning the seed that fell on bad and good ground but they will never consider if they themselves are the seed that has fallen on bad ground or are they of the virgins that has no oil.

The truth is under a great attack today in ways like never before and those that hate the truth of God are hard at work to destroy it. Many are greedy for wealth and power, and they know that as long as the truth of God in all it's teaching of righteousness and ethical conduct stands, then they can't do what they want. Many in Government and business want Satan's ways so they can please all their lust, and corrupt all the earth without feeling guilt. You see, they know deep within that judgment is coming, but they want to deny it to themselves so they MUST change the truth of God and discredit those that will defend it. Jesus gave us as true followers a great responsibility to uphold the preaching of the coming Kingdom of God until He returns with it. Jesus instructed the apostle John to write these words to us for these last days. "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens": "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name." The term "Name" here is "authority" or “notoriety” as the Messiah being the Son of the Holy Father and a day will come when those that murder the true followers of the Messiah will think they are doing God's service and they will do so because they believe it is blasphemy to claim that The Holy Father has a Son.

Jesus set this open door before us and He expects us to continue to KEEP His word and not deny His Name (Authority) until the end. He expects us to continue in the truth He delivered from the Holy Father without adding ones own interpretation to it. Let's not be of the church of the Laodiceans that have put Jesus out of the church where He must stand out side and knock. If we have found ourselves there, but hear Him knocking then let's be honest with ourselves and repent, and open to Him and sup with Him. If we have found that we have not brought oil for our lamps, then let's do so now, and take our calling to heart asking God what He wants us to do. Jesus came with a message that could only be delivered by someone so great that the message could never be destroyed by the powers of darkness in high places. This message is a living on going message because it was delivered by a blood sacrifice from God Himself, and as God swearing on Himself, there can be no greater or complete eternal promise to those that will believe. This is the very reason NO MAN should ever change the true gospel or the doctrine of Jesus, lest he be cursed. Let's take heed to what we preach as the word of God. Let's not mix what we THINK is truth, or what someone else teaches as truth, but let's study to find "the truth" so we can preach by "the authority" of the very Son that sits on the throne in heaven and be named among the faithful servants of God.

Let's realize that this is not about us alone, but about many others that need this gospel message for their saving and the saving of those they love. Many misguided preachers are teaching many types of false gospels today that lead people to believe they only need to accept Jesus alone and just set back letting the preachers lead others into the Kingdom or into the gates of heaven. But by doing this they are being lead into the great false system that teaches a false repentance, a false baptism, a false Christ, and a false spirit, thus a false salvation. Many are even teaching the old false teaching that Satan started in the garden that we shall not surly die. Many ministers and leading men in churches teach that all shall be saved and that it does not matter what we believe as truth we will be saved just because we had faith. Many ministers teach that God is love and will not condemn anyone that has faith in their higher power what ever that might be for the believer. Please brethren; don't be deceived, but check to see if you have your oil. You might want to read our study titled "The ten Virgins" which you can find at the end of this study.

We see thousands of churches today brethren fast going into the Apostate church and teaching contrary to sound doctrine, and even not teaching those things that were originally delivered by the Messiah. Also on into Matt. 25 around verse 14 we read where Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God being like a man that traveled into a far country. Before leaving, the master called His servants and gave them His goods and He expected His servants to take the goods with their talents He gave them and increase His goods while He was gone. This parable is in fact of Jesus going back to heaven to prepare a Kingdom for us, but while He is gone He gave what He had been given by God the Father in heaven to His disciples who in turn taught others, thus increasing the fruit of the garden as time went on. The point here is that one should not take what they have been freely given and not allow it to grow and be freely passed on to others.

I have stated many times that Jesus did not come preaching His own gospel, nor did He change anything He received from the Holy Father. If He had He would have become an unfaithful servant and could not have been the Messiah and our savior. Jesus came introducing the Holy Father for the very first time to the world and taught that we could have the same personal relationship with the Holy Father that Jesus Himself has. This is the very core of the gospel message and the plan of salvation that has been set in motion since the foundation of the world, but many people have never heard of the very important seven parts of the plan of salvation of God even though they are taught throughout the bible. You might want to read our study titled "The Lord's table" at the end.

So what did Jesus preach as the gospel from the Holy Father?
I will re-entrant here that the gospel is the wonderful message or good news of God's plan of salvation for all mankind through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah, His only begotten Son. The New Testament calls this message the gospel of grace, the gospel of the kingdom, the gospel of peace, and the mystery of Christ. The gospel of grace is the good news that Jesus is the Savior of the world and through His blood all who repent and believe on Him may have their sins forgiven and may enter into the Family of God. It's the good news that when Jesus returns to the earth, He will set up the kingdom of God and the government of God and He will rule all nations as King of kings and Lord of lords on this earth, not in heaven. In fact we find in scripture that no one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven. Let's read it for ourselves in John 3:13 it states... "No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven."

But we must understand that just because we use the name of Jesus and declare we are a Christian does not insure we will be in the Kingdom of God. Let's read what Jesus Himself stated recorded in Matt 7:21-23. "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" This is a very important statement because if we can't be saved unless we do the will of the Holy Father in heaven then we must learn what His will is. Notice that we find in this scripture that some can think they are Christians and still be condemned. Let's continue the study so we can learn more about what Jesus taught and how this information will help us understand the points Jesus considered important.

Some prophetic scriptures about the coming Kingdom.
Let's read a few scriptures that give a look into what the coming Kingdom of God will be like. Let's turn to Micah 4:1-7 1 "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. For all people walk each in the name of his god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever. "In that day," says the LORD, "I will assemble the lame, I will gather the outcast and those whom I have afflicted; I will make the lame a remnant, and the outcast a strong nation; so the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion from now on, even forever.

We also read in Isa 11:5-10 that..."Righteousness shall be the belt of His (Jesus') loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist. "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. "And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious." This root of Jesse refereed to here brethren is Jesus the Messiah.

"What the Kingdom of God will be like"
Now let's just take a moment to reflect on what we have found about what the Kingdom of God will be like. We are informed through the word of God that God will rule the earth as King supreme and He will teach His ways, and humans shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; and nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. All living shall walk in His paths which will bring happiness, and peace on earth. That fact alone means that the Ten Commandments will be kept which means all crime will vanish. Think of a world where there's no murder, hate, war, theft, or deceit. There will be no cars, plains, trains, because we will not need to travel to find greener grass over that next hill. We will have our families with all we need in our own communities and the children will grow up with a much different set of values that are for the good of all, not because of a law but because of the very nature being changed.

Think of a world that has no need for police or prisons. A world where a child can play safely and not even a cobra will strike. Families will dwell together on their own land where children will honor their parents and grandparents and we find that all the lame will be healed and there will be no tears shed in the Kingdom. All disease such as cancer, Viral diseases, genetic disorders or infections will cease to exist. Bees and ants will not sting, snakes will not bite, roses will no longer have thorns and trees will give fruit for the picking. Humans in the kingdom of God will be healthy with the abilities to climb mountains, swim lakes, run miles, and enjoy every taste and flavor of every fruit, the smell of every flower as well as the beauty of the rolling hills as the cool sweet breeze flows over the face and Yes...the very nature of the creation will be changed as we read in Isa 11 concerning the "The wolf dwelling with the lamb, and the leopard lying down with the young goat. This shows that humans will be vegetarians because if the wild beast will not kill for food than humans will not eat flesh either.

With food for all being grain, nuts, fruit, or vegetables there will be plenty for all and no one will be harmed or consumed for the continued life of another. No one will be another's slave including the animals because the food and water will be within reach. Humans will not have to spend their time trying to survive but will spend their time learning, and doing those things that they truly enjoy doing. If a person loves sewing than they will sew clothes for many in their community or if a person loves building things they will build what others need such as tables, chairs and beds. Those that love growing flowers will do so and even give to people for free. All living will have a true love for all the creation and want to grow and build things the right way which will be learned from God as the prophecy stated..."They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea." Yes it will be the true balance that God will give the heavens and earth. It will be this balance of His love for us and our love for Him to the point we will worship Him in a way that will bring joy and happiness to the heart in a way we have never thought possible.

God has a reason for everything He does and many don't realize that the very destruction that will take place during the great tribulation will have the purpose of re-shaping and cleansing the earth. This re-shaping will bring down many mountains and raise many valleys so the weather will become constant around the world. The sun will not be too hot, and the winters will not be too cold. Deserts will bloom as we find recorded in...Isa chapter 35: verse 1 which states..."The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose." And in Isa chapter 5 verses 1:3 we read..."For the LORD will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody."

Yes brethren the fire God will send on the earth will clean all the disease, refuse and foul matter that mankind has created. It will destroy all automobiles, plains, trains, guns, and any other machine God judges to be destructive. Those men and women that worked with Satan to cause destruction will be burned up unless they repent and no longer in charge of anything. Let's understand that there will be humans in the flesh during the thousand reign of the Messiah as well as those that were changed to spirit during the first resurrection as we find recorded in Revelation chapter 20: verse 6, it states..."Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years."

We also find this prophecy in Isa 11:1-10; "There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. His delight is in the fear of the LORD, and He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears; But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; he shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist.

After reflecting on these things brethren we all should strive to be in His coming Kingdom and give Him glory for not only bringing this message from the Holy Father to us but for giving His very life so we can be a part of it. I truly believe that we must alter our opinions to fit the truth and never alter the truth to fit our opinions and there is no greater legacy than to bring the truth to those that are deceived. For those that could lose the opportunity to be in the wonderful kingdom of God because their ministers failed to bring the message that Jesus brought and His apostles were faithful in the message and never changed it for their own gain.

As stated above the wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. "And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious."

Back in 1984 I was praying about this subject and as a result I wrote a poem that reflects not only what I see in this world today but what God showed me about His Kingdom that is to come. I titled it...The whole Creation Groans in Pain and based it on Romans 8:22-23 which states..."For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body."
