Kingdom of God
Page 1 of 1
The purpose of the Gospel; this present evil world; how does Christ bring in the kingdom? the cosmic dimension of the kingdom.
The Gospel is not a protest message; nor just a moral teaching; man's inability to keep the Ten Commandments; the nature of the kingdom of God.
A message which calls man to listen to the truth; receiving the revelation; God acting in history; an announcement of the kingdom of God; standing before God.
The Biblical view of the kingdom is not vague or indefinite; the different positions occupied by those outside the kingdom; the true mark of intelligence; the externals of religion do not please God; the danger of an intellectual and theoretical only view of Christianity; the explanation for those who are outside the kingdom.
Wrong ideas concerning the entry into the kingdom; the examples of the three men in this passage; the way of apparent failure; awake to the fact of the soul; the totalitarian demands of the kingdom.
A kingdom not of this world; the error of the church/state union; the kingdom will not come through the reform of the world; the kingdom; a manifestation of the power of God; the kingdom and the Church; belonging to the kingdom.
A knowledge of Christianity only possible through the Bible; some common ideas concerning Christianity refuted; the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world; the privileges and responsibility of the kingdom.
A spiritual kingdom with only one way of entry; reasons for listening to the Gospel; facing God in the judgement; all that man values will be shaken; the mediator of the new covenant : the meaning of this explained; the only way to God.
About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
