Kingdom of Heaven

The King's daughter is all glorious within: How beautiful are your feet shod with the Gospel of peace, O prince's daughter! For God is the King of all the Earth: God sits upon the throne of His Holiness. How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things!

My beloved makes my feet like hinds' feet: And sets me upon my high places! On the good ground are they, who, having heard the Word, keep it and bring forth fruit with patience. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish: At our gates are all kinds of pleasant fruits, New and Old: For every scribe who is instructed in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man that is a householder, who brings forth out of his treasure things New and Old.

For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a King, who made a marriage for His Son, and sent forth His servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: And they would not come… But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise… Then He said: The wedding is ready, but they who were bidden were not worthy… Go therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage. And when the King came in to see the guests, He saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment: The garment of Salvation of Jesus Christ who is the Prince of the kings of the Earth, who loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood and clothed us in white: As He has made us Kings and Priests in the Kingdom of God!

Thus, says the Lord: As the new wine is found in the cluster, I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and my elect shall inherit it. Gather the people: Let the bridegroom go forth of His chamber, and the bride out of her closet! The water was made wine! The ruler called the bridegroom and said: You have kept the good wine until now: The bride of Christ!

And He replied: Come hither, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife: And He showed holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God; having the glory of God and her light was clear as crystal. And I saw no temple there: For the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city had no need of the sun to shine in it: For the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is its light! And there shall in no way enter into it anything that defiles, but only they who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

And the Spirit and the bride say: Come! Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I will fear no Evil: For God is with me. He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies: God anoints my head with oil and my cup overflows!

As the bride, holy Jerusalem, desires a better country, that is a heavenly one: Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared for them a city; to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, reserved in Heaven for them!

What is your beloved more than another beloved, O you fairest among women?

And I saw Heaven opened and behold a white horse: And He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, He does judge and make war! His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written that no Man knew, but He himself. And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: And His Name is called The Word of God. Out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it, He should smite the nations; and He has on His vesture a Name written: King of kings and Lord of lords…

And He said: I have loved you with an everlasting love. Therefore, with loving-kindness have I drawn you! You were not redeemed with corruptible things, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which by the Gospel is preached to you.

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you! Can the Children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? Behold, I show you a mystery: You shall not all sleep, but you shall all be changed; in the twinkling of an eye! Then, the dead shall be raised incorruptible, for this mortal must put on immortality!

And as we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly! Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruptibility.

Thus, you will receive an inheritance undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you; who are kept by the power of God, through faith to Salvation, and ready to be revealed in the last Time!

We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, who are the called according to His purpose: For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestine to be conformed to the image of His Son.

Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet will I not forget you. Behold, I have graven you upon the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me! All gather themselves and come to you: As I live, says the Lord, you shall surely clothe yourself with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on yourself, as a bride does!

A Man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth: For the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the Commandment of the King by the Word of the Lord. Thus, the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man travelling into a far country; who called his own servants, and delivered to them his goods, according to his ability. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded and made five other talents. His Lord said: Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord!

Thus, whatever is commanded by the God of Heaven, let it be done diligently: For why should there be wrath against the realm of the King and his sons? For the Lord God of Heaven, the great and terrible God, keeps Covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe His Commandments: As the Heaven is high above the Earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. It is He that sits upon the circle of the Earth, and its inhabitants are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the Heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in…

Thus, says the King: Just as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Just as the rain comes down from Heaven, and does not return, but waters the Earth and makes it bring forth and bud: So shall My Word that goes forth out of My mouth not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing where I sent it…

Thus, lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field; which, when a man has found it, for joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field! And Jesus said: If you will be perfect, give to the poor and you shall have treasure in Heaven. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant seeking goodly pearls: When he had found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had and bought it!

As a prince you have power with God and with men and have prevailed. The Lord kills and makes alive: He raises up the poor out of the dust, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness: For by strength shall no man prevail. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: Whatever you shall loose on Earth, shall be loosed in Heaven.

Not everyone that says to Me: “Lord! Lord!” shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that does the will of My Father who is in Heaven. When Heaven is shut up and there is no rain, because they have sinned against you; if they confess the name of Jesus Christ and turn from their sin: Then, when two of you shall agree on Earth touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father who is in Heaven. Repent: For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand…

Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven! Until Heaven and Earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the Law, until all is fulfilled. But I say to you: Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who persecute you; that you may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven, for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good. If you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Unless you are converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whoever therefore shall humble himself as a little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

I am found of them that did not seek Me: I have spread out my hands all day to a rebellious people, which walked in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts. Can you by searching find out God? After this manner therefore pray: Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name.

And a certain ruler asked: What shall I do to inherit Eternal Life? And Jesus said: You know the Commandments - Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother. Then, distribute to the poor and you shall have treasure in Heaven. How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God… It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. The things which are impossible with men are possible with God: That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs of Eternal Life! For the wages of sin is Death, but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to Life Eternal. I give them Eternal Life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.

As many as were ordained to Eternal Life believed: For our conversation is on Heaven and our Savior: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like His glorious body.

Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened to ten virgins, who took their lamps. And at midnight, there was a cry: Behold, the bridegroom comes! And the foolish virgins said to the wise: Give us of your oil, for our lamps are gone out. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour, when the Son of Man comes...

In my distress I called upon the Lord: And He did hear my voice out of His temple. He bowed the Heavens also and came down; and darkness was under His feet. Through the brightness before Him were coals of fire kindled. And God said: Yet once more, will I shake not only the Earth, but also Heaven. He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second Death.

Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him, who was and who is to come: The Almighty… Before the throne there is a sea of glass like crystal: And in the midst of the throne, and around, are four beasts full of eyes before and behind, saying: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come!

And all kindreds of the Earth shall wail because of Him: When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory. And before Him shall be gathered all nations: And He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides His sheep from the goats. Then shall the King say to them on His right hand: Come, blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks was one like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the foot. His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice was as the sound of many waters. And His countenance was as the sun shines in his strength. Out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged sword…

And Jesus said: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, who is, and who was, and who is to come: The Almighty. See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no God with Me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; neither is there any that can deliver out of My hand. Behold, the Heaven and the Heaven of Heavens is the Lord’s your God, the Earth also, with all that is in there. But will God indeed dwell on the Earth? Behold, the Heaven and Heaven of Heavens cannot contain Him…

And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: The God of Israel: And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of Heaven in His clearness. Jesus Christ is the true God and Eternal Life.

The bride will be caught up to the third Heaven: Into Paradise! We will receive a Kingdom which cannot be moved: For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come.

The dead in Christ shall rise first, and he that overcomes will I give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. They who shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Behold what love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the Sons of God: Therefore, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

And the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall lead His bride to living fountains of waters: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain. For eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of Man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him!
