Matt. 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
“The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” That’s from the King James Version translation. The Amplified version sheds a little more light on it. Here it is: “And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].”
As Pastor Bev said, “Jesus greatest opposition was the church. Jesus was talking about the Kingdom, and the church folks were talking about religion.” If you’ve been brought up in the traditional teaching, you were taught to get saved and wait for 30, 40, 80 years until you die and go to Heaven. How boring. Jesus’ message was that Kingdom of Heaven has come to earth. When The Disciples asked Jesus how to pray, Jesus told them to pray like this, “…Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done [where?] in earth, [how?] as it is in heaven.
As Pastor Bev says, “The Kingdom is not for wimps.” If you’re religious, you’ll miss it. It’s time up for trying to walk on rice paper trying not to offend anyone. God is the God of an ever-increasing Kingdom and we need to be about advancing the Kingdom. The Kingdom is precious. The Kingdom is Heaven on earth.
We have been preaching the Kingdom, because salvation is more than just getting saved and waiting to die and go to Heaven. We are to live the victorious life, the Kingdom life right here on earth.
