What exactly is the kingdom Gospel? I've wondered about this before, people like to say it a lot.
If the phrase and terms above are based on passages in the Scriptures, then we can address them a from a Scripture stand point. Nevertheless, there are those who use certain phrases from the Bible to establish their own teaching. The more complicated they sound, they hope to gain the loyalty of men as brilliant minds, but the true Gospel is simple. Therefore, the terms above, Kingdom Gospel – refers to Matthew 4:23 and Matthew 9:35. Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
The words of interest concerning the Kingdom Gospel, are teaching and preaching.
Preaching is a herald, a public cry, which brings attention to the message.
Whereas teaching explains that which got the attention of the hearer. This ought to be the pattern of the proclamation of the Gospel. The preacher ought not to hold back, but say it as it is, “based on Scripture.” Then he or she should explain and bring light unto the hearer. This is the healing aspect of the Gospel, physical healing as well as spiritual healing from sin. The saving aspect deals with salvation. Meaning, Jesus is the way. John 14:6
However, if you are referring to the “Kingdom now gospel.” This is an error in teaching. They teach that God in heaven is looking for helpers here on earth to establish his kingdom. They take it even further, claiming they have to take over this world, by conquering it. Not necessarily with the true Gospel, but by placing men in high government positions, in order to bring about God’s kingdom.
Needless to say, they forget Matthew 6:10 . . . Thy kingdom come. We pray for “His” Kingdom to come. Not formulating it through this current world system.
So basically they are setting themselves up gods 😐
Thank you, I was not sure how it would be answered but your insight is a blessing. 😊
