LESSON 12

 

Seeking the Kingdom of Heaven

This present world will pass away

The Lord has no intentions of preserving this present world, even now the earth is rushing towards that final judgment. Therefore seeking the things of this world can at most bring a fleeting satisfaction, while seeking the Kingdom of Heaven an everlasting joy.

 

  Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

  Psalms 102:25-26  (cr Hebrews 1:10-12)

  2 Peter 3:7-12

  Revelation 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

The Word of God will not pass away

  Jesus said my Words shall not pass away – Matthew 24:35

 

The Word of God made the Heavens

  Psalms 33:6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

 

Jeremiah is given a Word for the Children of Israel in Captivity. When asked to serve the Gods of the Chaldeans this is what you shall say…

  Jeremiah 10:10-12 

All things founded upon the Word of God will not pass away

We are founded upon the Word of God, faith in His Word, the enduring Word.

Jesus, the Word of God is in Heaven

  Revelation 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

 

The Gospel of Salvation is the Word of God

  1 Peter 1:24-25  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:  But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

  Romans 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

  Isaiah 51:6 …but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

  1 Peter 1:23  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

 

The Lord is going to shake the Heaven and the earth, revealing those things eternal
