Acts 28.31 ‚ÄúBoldly and without hindrance he preached the Kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.‚Äù
Matthew 4.17 ‚ÄúFrom that time on Jesus began to preach, ‚ÄòRepent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.‚Äô‚Äù
Repent – Metanoeo ‚Äì from Meta, change of place or condition, and noeo, exercise the mind, think, comprehend
Change the way you think. Look at the things and people and events and situations differently, because the Kingdom of Heaven is near.
In Daniel 2, we see a picture of the Kingdom of God. It is a rock that is cut out or CUT OFF but NOT by man. It strikes a statue which represents kingdoms of this world (it strikes it? Where did it come from?) and COMPLETELY destroys it, and they blow away like chaff. Then it becomes a HUGE mountain and endures forever.
Man‚Äôs kingdoms are statues of men made from materials shaped by men. God‚Äôs kingdom is a MOUNTAIN! You can‚Äôt carve or break or destroy a big mountain and it doesn‚Äôt resemble any man ‚Äì it resembles GOD.
The kingdoms of men are as different from the Kingdom of God as a statue is different from a mountain.
