The true gospel of the kingdom

THE TRUE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM IS PREACHED BY GOING TO THE SCRIPTURES (LAW & PROPHETS)

What is wrong, therefore? Did the Messiah lie to His disciples in uttering the words of Matthew 24:14? I would rather be as the Apostle Saul (Paul) who said, "Let Yahweh be true, but every man a liar" (Romans. 3:4). Therefore it is wiser to conclude that the Real and True Gospel of the Kingdom of Yahweh has not been preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations. To state it truthfully and correctly, the majority of the religious leaders and teachers of the world do not really KNOW what is the Real or True Gospel! They have not heard it nor would they recognize it if it came face to face with them! They think that the True Gospel is preaching and teaching what one reads in the New Testament of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. And some even say that there are, therefore, FOUR gospels! The word "Gospel" means good news or glad tidings, and there was just the ONE good news or glad tidings which is the salvation of our souls through the preaching of the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah (not Jesus Christ) according to the scriptures.


One would say, "Well that is just what I have been doing — preaching the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ according to the scriptures in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John." No! That is absolutely and positively not what we mean. The Apostle Saul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you. Which also ye have received and wherein ye stand. By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Yahshua died for our sins according to the Scriptures. And that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures." One would still think that the Apostle is talking about the scriptures of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. But he really is not.


He is talking about the same scriptures that Yahshua the Messiah referred to when He told the Jews to, "Search the Scriptures. For in them, ye think ye have eternal life; but they are they which testify of me" (John 5:39). The Messiah certainly would not have told the Jews to search something that they did not have at that time. For everyone surely knows that the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were not written at that time. Most Bible chronologists say that it was some twenty (20) or more years after the Messiah's death that the first one of these books was written. So how could the Jews search the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John? Truthfully, the scriptures that the Messiah was referring to were the old Jewish Torah or Law and Prophets (the Old Testament) which they already had in their homes, over the doors of their houses, bound around their wrists and on the hems of their garments, etc.


These same Scriptures, or Law and Testimony, were spoken of by Isaiah the Prophet some 700 years before the coming of Yahshua the Messiah — through the loins of the Virgin Mary: "To the Law and to the Testimony. If they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20). According to the foreknowledge and election of Yahweh, He gave witness of His Son in types and shadows in the Law and the Testimony. The Law comprises the Books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy; and the Testimony or Prophets comprises the Books of Joshua through Malachi.


These are the "Two Witnesses" that Yahweh has given of His Son, Yahshua the Messiah (Revelation 11:3). These "Two Witnesses" (the Law and Testimony) relate and foretell of the Birth, Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah: therefore, if one is to know anything of Yahshua the Messiah, it is absolutely necessary to know what is contained in the Scriptures concerning Him.


One definitely and positively CANNOT preach the True Gospel of the Kingdom of Yahweh without showing how the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the Messiah was foretold in the Scriptures (Law and Testimony) and not by referring to the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Do you know of any preacher, minister or teacher who can instruct or teach you of the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah WITHOUT using the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John? No, they would absolutely be at a loss to expound upon this subject if they did not have the books of the so-called New Testament — yet, the whole story of Yahshua the Messiah is foretold in the Old Testament or the Scriptures. Even Yahshua the Messiah, Himself, opened up the understanding of His disciples by referring to those things that were written of Him in the Law and the Testimony (Luke 24:25-27, 44-45).


Let us refer again to the words of the Apostle Saul that the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah must be preached ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), for this is the True Gospel of the Kingdom. When Yahshua the Messiah spoke the words, "And THIS Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:l4), He was speaking of the TRUE GOSPEL that tells of His Death, Burial and Resurrection — by referring to the Law and Testimony (Scriptures). He, Himself, preached this same Gospel. For Matthew later wrote of Him thusly, "And Yahshua went about ALL cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom and healing every sickness and every disease among the people" (Matthew 9:35). Now, the question may be asked, "What did the Messiah specifically preach?" We will again refer you to the Book of Matthew 16:21. "From that time forth began Yahshua to show unto His disciples, how that He must go into Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day." In other words, Yahshua the Messiah preached of His Death, Burial and Resurrection; and THIS was the Gospel of the Kingdom.


In another place, Matthew records thusly: "And Yahshua, going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way and said unto them, ‘Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes. And they shall deliver Him to the heathen to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him. And the third day He shall rise again’" (Matthew 20:17-19). Luke records virtually the same thing. "Then He took the twelve, and said unto them, ‘Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man shall be accomplished. For He shall be delivered unto the heathen, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: And they shall scourge Him and put Him to death and the third day He shall rise again.’ AND THEY UNDERSTOOD NONE OF THESE THINGS. And this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken" (Luke 18:31-34).


Even though Yahshua the Messiah plainly preached to His disciples of His death, burial, and resurrection, according to the scriptures (the Law and the Prophets) which is the True Gospel of the Kingdom — they did not understand Him. For these things were hidden from them until AFTER Yahshua had died on the cross, and been buried in Joseph's new tomb, and resurrected from the grave on the third day. In fact, Yahshua the Messiah, Himself, — after He rose from the grave a Quickening Spirit (1 Corinthians 15:45) — spoke to two of His disciples as they were walking along after His resurrection. And [the two disciples] were discussing the events of His death, burial, and resurrection. And [Yahshua] said: "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken. Ought not the Messiah to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?


And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in ALL the scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Luke 24:25-27). And later on — when He appeared to the rest of the disciples in the upper room behind closed doors — He said unto them, "These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you. That all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me. Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:44-45).


We have already shown that the True Gospel of the Kingdom is preaching the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah according to the scriptures (Genesis to Malachi). And we have already shown that Yahshua the Messiah, Himself, preached this same Gospel to His disciples by speaking to them of His Death, Burial, and Resurrection using the scriptures to open up their understanding. Now it becomes necessary to see if the disciples or apostles preached this same Gospel when they went into the world after Pentecost. The Apostle Peter — when preaching this Gospel to the Gentiles at Cornelius' house — said this: "And we are witnesses of all the things which He (Yahshua) did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem — whom they slew and hanged on a tree. Him, Yahweh raised up the third day and showed Him openly: to Him, give all the prophets witness" (Acts 10:39-40,43). The Apostle Saul also went into the synagogues of the Jews and reasoned with them out of the scriptures — opening and alleging that the Messiah must needs have suffered and risen again from the dead. And that this Yahshua, said He, Whom I preach unto you is the Messiah (Acts 17:1-3).
