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!
2 Peter 1:11 ESV
…there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Years ago I searched for books on the kingdom. I found a number of books but I was shocked to find that they were about the kingdom but not the King. The King was entirely missing. Kingdom principles, kingdom values, kingdom dynamics…but not the King Himself!
(I have since discovered T. Austin Sparks and E. Stanley Jones and a few others who focus on the King of the Kingdom.)
The Kingdom IS the King. There is only One Way to the Father’s kingdom: Jesus Christ, Who IS the King. The kingdom of God can be reduced to a ‘thing,’ separated from the King, and then reduced to a set of beliefs. It can be made to seem a law of spiritual life or a ‘Christian ideal.’ The Kingdom of our Lord is not a system, a doctrine, or a rule. The Kingdom is the Person of Jesus! The Kingdom centers on Him, serves Him, reveals Him. The Kingdom is FOR Him and about Him…
The Eternal Kingdom is infinitely real and knowable, but when you seek the Kingdom, it must be by knowing the King Himself.
Praise God our Father! It is the kingdom of “our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”
