The Priority of Jesus Christ
Jesus never preached himself to the public
We preach the “Gospel of Jesus Christ, not The Gospel the Jesus Christ Preached”.
Jesus never said preacher to preach about him.Act 28:30-31 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, 31Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
· The priority of Jesus the Christ in the Kingdom, Matthew 6:33 (KJV) 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. He never preached born again. He mentions born again once at 0200 to only one man but not to crowd of people. And the man was a religious leader and the question he asked was “How do I enter in the Kingdom?”
· Matthew 6:9-11 (KJV) 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread… (Don’t Pray for Jesus to come)
· Luke 22:29-30(KJV) 29 And I appoint (confer) unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed (conferred) unto me; 30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (This is a political statement)
Parable are real story that conceal the truth.
The kingdom of God have everything a humankind was looking for. And is more valuable than anything else you can ever possess because everything else is in it. Mat 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Jesus is not the Kingdom; he is the door to the Kingdom. Door leads to places; he is not the end but the access to humankind searching. Make it worst most preacher and pastors have being preaching the door. Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
When you find the kingdom of God you will give up the entire theology of the religious mind all you knew just to except the Kingdom today and people will call you all kind of names, why because everything you being searching using the religious way is found in the Kingdom of god. Mat 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
This verse is the verse that most preacher ignore because is not conducive to their theology, it say Jesus specking Luk_16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. Jesus shut down and full fill the old testament. What Jesus said is that you are not support to get your material of preaching from Old Testament but point the reference from there. He didn’t say the Old Testament was wrong or unvaried but it was fulfilled. Every prophecy in the Old Testament has being fulfilled. John was the only prophet who hard one feet on Old Testament and the other on New Testament. Jesus said they is no greater prophets than John because they all prophecy and talk about the King and kingdom coming but John introduce it and saw meet the King and the kingdom in the King, and yet Jesus said the least in the Kingdom is greater than John. Because even though John saw it he never got in the Kingdom. Luk_7:28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
The whole Old Testament was all about Jesus coming to save the mankind. Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
The final meeting of Jesus was to conclude the Old Testament why he took his 3 disciples (Peter, James and John) (human) to witness that the Law and Prophet (Old Testament) are fulfilled. He went in to the mountain and bible says he was transfigured. Mat 17:2-3 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
Moses represents the Law and Elijah the prophet while they were closing the meeting Peters said is good to be here let build the 3 religion let use maintain the law, prophecy and build one for Jesus. Mat 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
Voice from heaven heard the foolishness of mankind and interrupted and God responded and answered before Peter could have finished his ideas and give instruction to the men. Mat 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
Jesus preached the Kingdom of God every day and every time before he died and after resurrection he keeps on teaching, talking and preaching the Kingdom of God to his disciples. Acts 1:1-5 (KJV) 1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
So when disciples meet together they asked Jesus Lord if he was going to restore the Kingdom of Israel which seems nationalist thinking about the their small nation. Acts 1:6 (KJV) 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
But Jesus answered them the kingdom is not limited to a nation government, it is invisible and is from a country that is invisible called heaven and God want that country to impact Earth. Acts 1:7-9(KJV) 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
The Message of Jesus.
Mat 3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
And Jesus submitted to John…
Mat 4:17-18 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Mat 4:23-24 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Mat 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 6:33-34 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Luk 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.
Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. “Jesus say the Number optical to the Kingdom is pastors.”
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. “in other word they is some secrets that we support to know about the country and others don’t know that make your life different on earth”.
Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. “Jesus here talk about the authority man have in bring the kingdom of heaven on earth through learning the keys, the law, the principles that make it works”.
