LESSON 426
A LOOK INTO GOD’S KINGDOM (Mt. 13:1-24)

INTRODUCTION:

The kingdom of God is compared to so many things in the Bible. For example: The Sower, Mustered Seed, and Treasure hidden in the forest. As we continue the study into God’s kingdom today. I pray God will give you understanding in Jesus name Amen. This study is divided into two -the meaning and the benefits.
1. The Meaning.
A Look from within. The kingdom of God is to be viewed from within. When a thing is viewed from within, you will be able to give a better description of it. Example: House, it is inside a house that we have things use for decoration such as window, toilets etc.
(b) That Kingdom
(c) Abode of that Kingdom
( d) Where the King operates in authority and dominion
(e) Where the spoken word of the King become the law.
(f) Where people must be in love and joy of the King.
(g) God, the living God, creator of heaven and earth. The Holy one of Israel, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, God of all Flesh, the one that nothing is impossible for, God of battle, Glorious King.
Finally, it is a place where the living God reigns. We can talk
about it because we are there as a born again Christian. We
know what it is.
(I) The Messenger-The Angels will minister unto God’s children.
Mt.6:13, Ps.22:28,103:19, Dan. 4:3, Mt.8:12, 13:38,25:34, Ps. 34:7, Dan7:10, Mark.4:11,Mk.l:13

2. BENEFITS OF HIS KINGDOM
The benefits of His kingdom could be compared to the glory of the kingdom or half it’s size. We can determine the glory of a king by the size of his kingdom. We can explain the size of His kingdom in three ways.

a. Inheritances: Cannot be explained, for instance; trees in the forest, fishes in the ocean, the animals and so on cannot be counted.

b. Peace of Mind: How much can you pay for Joy, Peace, rest and eternal life? No wonder the Bible asked what thing does it profit a man if he gains the whole earth and suffers the loss of his soul.

c. Spiritual things: How much money can you pay for answered prayers, Fellowship with God, deliverance from powers of darkness, Mansion in Heaven, the blood that cleanses from all sins, the stripe that brought healing into the world, baptism of the Holy Spirit, All these are priceless.

c). Sing spiritual song unto yourself- Eph.5: 19, 20; ICor.14: 15; Col.3: 16; Jam.5:13.

LESSON 426
A LOOK INTO GOD’S KINGDOM (Mt. 13:1-24)

INTRODUCTION:

The kingdom of God is compared to so many things in the Bible. For example: The Sower, Mustered Seed, and Treasure hidden in the forest. As we continue the study into God’s kingdom today. I pray God will give you understanding in Jesus name Amen. This study is divided into two -the meaning and the benefits.
1. The Meaning.
A Look from within. The kingdom of God is to be viewed from within. When a thing is viewed from within, you will be able to give a better description of it. Example: House, it is inside a house that we have things use for decoration such as window, toilets etc.
(b) That Kingdom
(c) Abode of that Kingdom
( d) Where the King operates in authority and dominion
(e) Where the spoken word of the King become the law.
(f) Where people must be in love and joy of the King.
(g) God, the living God, creator of heaven and earth. The Holy one of Israel, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, God of all Flesh, the one that nothing is impossible for, God of battle, Glorious King.
Finally, it is a place where the living God reigns. We can talk
about it because we are there as a born again Christian. We
know what it is.
(I) The Messenger-The Angels will minister unto God’s children.
Mt.6:13, Ps.22:28,103:19, Dan. 4:3, Mt.8:12, 13:38,25:34, Ps. 34:7, Dan7:10, Mark.4:11,Mk.l:13

2. BENEFITS OF HIS KINGDOM
The benefits of His kingdom could be compared to the glory of the kingdom or half it’s size. We can determine the glory of a king by the size of his kingdom. We can explain the size of His kingdom in three ways.

a. Inheritances: Cannot be explained, for instance; trees in the forest, fishes in the ocean, the animals and so on cannot be counted.

b. Peace of Mind: How much can you pay for Joy, Peace, rest and eternal life? No wonder the Bible asked what thing does it profit a man if he gains the whole earth and suffers the loss of his soul.

c. Spiritual things: How much money can you pay for answered prayers, Fellowship with God, deliverance from powers of darkness, Mansion in Heaven, the blood that cleanses from all sins, the stripe that brought healing into the world, baptism of the Holy Spirit, All these are priceless.

JESUS IS THE WAY PART 1

INTRODUCTION:

There are various ways in the world known unto men. But we have only one way that lead to joy, blessings, health, peace, victory, safety and likewise to Glory. That way is JESUS -John14: 6.
The way cannot, will not, shall not, could not be and has not been able to be erased through persecution; (Acts 9;;2,19:9, 23; 22:4; 24:14,22) therefore the way can supply all needs. Let us talk about Jesus, the way to Joy.

1. THE WAY TO JOY
Jesus is the only way to true joy. John.15:11. Materialism, riches, wealth cannot give true joy. They do not last. They are not things of eternal value; thus the joy of a sinner is short. Job 20:5; Ps.37: 35, 36,38.

Steps to True Joy:
(a). Be saved i.e. confess all inward and outward sins repent and forsake them John.3:1-3; Gal..5:19-21; Prov.28,:13; Isa.55:6-7. 61
b). Stay in the salvation of the Lord. How? Stay with the word of God. Jos.1: 8; Jn.5: 39; Stay with the body of believers Heb.10: 25
c). Sing spiritual song unto yourself- Eph.5: 19, 20; ICor.14: 15; Col.3: 16; Jam.5:13.
d). Stay with the Giver of Joy and constantly trust him. Ps.37: 39, 40; Jam.4:7, 8; Rom.12:1-2; In.15:5; Job 13:1.5.
e). Ask John16: 24; Mat.7:7-11.
The way cannot fail you, trust him -Ps.4:5.
