Matthew 4:17 “From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
Paul asks us, “Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?” Don’t you recall from the OT that the Spirit of God dwelled between the cherubim above the mercy seat in the temple of Solomon? If the Spirit of God dwelled there above the ark in the temple, don’t you think that your being a temple of the Spirit makes you a walking Ark of the New Covenant? Wherever you go, the Spirit of God goes with you!! Wherever you go, the kingdom of heaven is there also! IF you are a believer of the Messiah!
Doesn’t it therefore make logical sense that we should be preaching the same message as that of Jesus, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven has come near”? Paul reminds us that the day is far spent and we are closer now than ever before to the second Advent of Messiah when He returns not as a suffering servant but as the Righteous King to assume His rightful spot atop the throne of David in Jerusalem for eternity! Should we not be out telling the world that the kingdom of heaven is at hand, and there is a real need to turn from wickedness and be saved? Ezekiel, if alive today, would definitely tell us to heed the Word of God about warning the lost of the coming Judgment from heaven or face an accounting with the LORD for not doing so. We are to fulfill our part in the Great Commission given by Jesus to witness to the world, convert the world , and make them disciples of Jesus.
