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!
The next New Testament mention of the kingdom is in Matthew 5: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
The word ‘poor’ does not mean having little, it means having nothing—a beggar. The kingdom is yours and is so today, but to ‘enter’ it is to come into all its benefits, and for that God has specific requirements.
It is the wilderness experience that reduces you to being poor in spirit so that you can come IN to the realm of the kingdom of God.
