Most of the ministry and parishioners believe that the Kingdom OF Heaven/God is the same as, Heaven. The Kingdom OF Heaven is like the United
States OF America. The U.S. is not America, since it is only part of north America, but is
in the continent of America.

The Kingdom is like that, it is in heaven, but not all of heaven and only part of it. The Kingdom is the government, which is the ruling authority over
heaven and the people in it.

In the prophesy of (Isaiah 9:6,7). It says that a Child will be born, and the government will be upon His shoulders: and His name shall be called,
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, and the increase of His Government and peace, there shall be no end.   (Messiah) The Strong’s
Bible Concordance says that the Kingdom, is royalty, rule, realm, reign. In this sense, it is positions of authority and not a place, per se.

The big question is: who will reign in the Kingdom? The Bible says that people will reign with the Messiah in heaven. Yahshua said “ Not everyone
that says to me, Yahshua, Yahshua shall enter into the Kingdom Of Heaven, but those that do the will of my Father which is in Heaven. (Matthew 7:
21) Those that don't reign are the nations being ruled over.

In the parable of the people working in the vinyard, the last to be hired got the same wages as the first. So the last Shall be first and the first last.
Remember in these scriptures, that it does not say the first were not included. And besides they also got paid.  

Whether first or last, many are called and few are chosen. Chosen for what? Does it say anything about hell, Lake of Fire, being tormented for ever,
for not being chosen? No, it does not say that.

Yahshua said “ That unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the Kingdom Of  
Heaven. The alternative is not the Lake Of Fire, and it doesn’t say it is. (Matthew 5:20)

Ok, so what is the advantage to being in the Kingdom and the ruling authority? To start from the top, Yahshua is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
This Means that He is over them as they rule in heaven.

As Timothy said “ there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which Yahshua, the righteous Judge, will give me that day: and not to me only, but
also to all who Have loved His appearing”. (2 Timothy 4:8)

Listen, my beloved brethren: has the Lord not chosen The poor of the world to be rich in faith and heirs of The Kingdom which He promised to those
who love Him? (James 2:5)

If you love me, keep the Commandments. (John 14:15) For this is the love of Elohim that We keep His Commandments, and they aren’t grievous. He
that Overcomes, and keeps my works to the end, to him I will I give power over the nations. (Revelation 2:26)

To repeat: not everyone that says Yahshua, Yahshua will enter the Kingdom. Many are called, few are chosen. These scriptures are speaking about
the people that are not chosen to be part of the government in heaven, And they won’t be cast into the Lake of Fire for not being chosen for the
government. The rest of mankind that are not chosen will go into heaven to be subjects under the Authorities.

Elohim will make the chosen, Kings and Priests to reign on the earth. (Rev 5:10) They will be Priests of  Elohim and the Messiah to reign with Him a
thousand years. (Rev.20:6) In the end of the 1000 years they will reign for ever and ever. (Rev.22:5) For a government you have to have people to
reign, all are not chosen for that? All will be saved, but all will not be Kings, and Priests.

Nicodemus said to Yahshua, " How can a man be born again, can a man enter into his mother's womb and be born again? Yahshua said you have to
be born again to see the Kingdom of Heaven. He said you are eather spirit or your flesh, and if you are spirit. You are like the wind, you can hear it,
but can't tell where it comes from.
He said if Nicodemus doesn't believe Yahshua on earthly things, how would he believe Him on Heavenly things. (John 3:3-12) Flesh and blood cannot
inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh. I show you a mystery; we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and the last trumpet will sound
and the dead will be raised incoruptible and we shall be changed. (1 Cor 15:50-56) The messiah will change our vile body,fashioned like unto His
glorious body. (Philippians 3:21)

That my friends is when we will be born again of spirit and not flesh. There is no scripture in the Bible that refers to anyone that was born again,
mainly because it hasn't happened yet. No one in this life has the authority to declare himself to be born again.

This page is about the kingdom, and what it means. Doctrines of traditions come and go, but mostly come, and then you can't get rid of them. I
actually believe they are chiseled in stone, someplace. At least that is what it seems like because they never end.
I mentioned to one pastor about Christmas that it was a pagan celebration and he said well, that is just one of our traditions that we keep. I think
these pastors should read over the Scripture that says, in vain do they worship me teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And those
words are by Yahshua himself.
There is only one way to look at it, the modern church has become a church of man, not of the Bible. The sad thing about it is, they're not willing to
change, even when you show them the scriptures. Click on some of the articles on the index above..
