THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE:
REMEMBER: From Phil 3
Phil 3:3 We worship God through His Spirit, and our pride is in Christ Jesus We do not put trust in ourselves or anything we can do.
Phil 3:8 … I think that all things are worth nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. … This allows me to have Christ and to belong to him.
Phil 3:9 I am right with God, not because I followed the law, but because I believed in Christ. God uses my faith to make me right with him.
Phil 3:12 .. I have not yet reached the goal, but I continue trying… Christ wants me to do that…. 13 .. there is one thing I always do: Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead… 15 All of us who are spiritually mature should think this way 20 .. our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ
Mat 13:24-30 The kingdom of heaven is like a man who planted good seed in his field…. 36- Jesus explains the meaning 41 they will gather out of his kingdom all who cause sin and who do evil ( nasb they will gather out of his kingdom all stumbling blocks.... )
Mat 13:51 Jesus: “Do you understand all these things?”
ALL WHO CAUSE SIN AND WHO DO EVIL = ALL STUMBLING BLOCK
( Romans 14:13, 1 Cor 8:9, Luke 17:1-2)
Mat 18:1-7 “ Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven ? 4 anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven ( Mat 23:12 , Luke 14:11, Luke 18:14 6 whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble…… 7 …woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!
Mat 18:23-35 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who decided to collect the money owed him. 33 You should have showed mercy to that other servant, just as I showed mercy to you. 35 This king did what my heavenly Father will do to you if you do not forgive …..
Mat 6:14-15 …if you do not forgive … your Father will not forgive your sins
