  • 1. UNDERSTANDING THE KINGDOM OF GOD THROUGH PARABLES
  • 2. Recap: A single day in the life of Jesus •He scolds the religious leaders. •Stands up for his disciples. •Heals a man with a withered hand on a Sabbath. •Expounded the Old Testament to the Pharisees. •Warns them about speaking against the Holy Spirit. •He tells his Mother about his true family. … and it’s not over!
  • 3. Yeh “parable” kya hain ?! •A parable is not a fable. •A story with real people. •It has a moral. •It’s an earthly story – with a heavenly meaning. •It has just one meaning/moral. •It is a revelatory message.
  • 4. Dissection of the Parable •Sower = Son of man (Jesus) •Field = World •Good Seed = Sons of the Kingdom •Weeds = Sons of the evil one. •Enemy = The Devil •Harvesters = Angels •Harvest = The end of the Age.
  • 5. What is the Kingdom of God? It is the Government of God in Heaven and on Earth
  • 6. Clarifications of the Kingdom The Church and the Kingdom don’t mean the same thing… CHURCH KINGDOM The church is only an embassy of the Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is the actual Kingdom It is a model of a sample it is the original it is temporal It is the eternal reign of God it is a part it is the whole it may have problems and can be shaken It is unshakeable and complete
  • 7. Other Clarifications… • The Kingdom of God is not invisible or just heavenly. • The Kingdom is not only for the future. • The Kingdom of God is not the rule of Christ in only my heart. • The Kingdom of God is not in the church, but the other way around, the church is in the kingdom. It is only a part of the Kingdom.
  • 8. KINGDOM CHURCH CHURCH KINGDOM
  • 9. Ask yourself… • Have you found the Kingdom of God? • Is He the King of my life? • Are there any areas in my life out from his Kingship? • What price have I paid to be part of the Kingdom of God?
