Bible Mysteries (2)

The first mystery of the Bible was revealed to us by Jesus. It is the mystery of the “kingdom of God.” Jesus began His ministry by preaching about the kingdom of God (Matthew 4:17). The kingdom of God is also called the kingdom of heaven.
Many years before Jesus came to earth, the prophet Daniel said that God would set up a kingdom that would “continue forever” (Daniel 2:44). And John the Baptizer also taught about the kingdom of God. John said, “Change your hearts and lives, because God’s kingdom is now very near” (Matthew 3:2).
In our Bible verses today, Jesus describes the kingdom of God. People in that kingdom are those who follow and obey Jesus. Today this kingdom is the church. The church is made up of people who have been born again (John 3:3-5).
The kingdom of God will never end. Christians are part of God’s kingdom through their lives and into eternity. Then Jesus will rule as king forever and ever.
