About Entering the Kingdom Series
Entering the Kingdom is the true Solution to every problem we have. And since Jesus IS the Kingdom, whenever He is present, the Kingdom is at hand!
Paul declares, “He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Col. 1:13 NASB).
You were born again into a kingdom! Yet Jesus Himself laid down conditions for entering the kingdom in this life. You who are born again have been given the right to the kingdom. You belong to the kingdom, and the kingdom is yours to enjoy. However, “few there be that find it.”
The great saga of Israel is really about the kingdom. Coming out of Egypt was coming out of the ‘domain of darkness.’ The Promised Land – with its ‘houses you didn’t build, vineyards you didn’t plant’ – is a picture of living in kingdom wonders NOW and enjoying heaven’s rule NOW. Canaan belonged to Israel, but Israel? The vast majority of the millions of Israelites never entered the land that was their intended home.
