What IS The Kingdom Seed? Just Another Christian Cliche?

What Can Substitute For the Kingdom Seed?

Is There ANY Alternative To This Seed?

Why Can ONLY Kingdom Seed Be Sown As Effective New Covenant Ministry?


September 11, 2015

I think this is one of the most important subjects that we have addressed in Document Format concerning the Experiential Kingdom. Why? Only the Kingdom Seed can produce Kingdom Results. The Kingdom “RESULTS”is defined as each of us obtaining our place in the Eternal Kingdom and possibly on Mount Zion. This is so essential that unless the “current ministries” can sow Kingdom Seed, they cannot qualify as a New Covenant ministry. Then what CAN it qualify for? VERY LITTLE except some Religious babble!

For example; Some churches are using the Sunday Meeting for entertaining their church members with Stand-up Christian Comedians. Can Christian Jokes be equal to sowing Solid Kingdom Seed? It is foolish and ignorant trash like this that is causing Christians to just stay home on Sunday and maybe watch something “Christian” on TV. Ministers that only sow lifeless and worthless “messages,” which are routine and repetitive, should NOT complain when people stay home. I suspect that ministers that become “too religious” and “controlling” do so simply because they only have a ineffective and lifeless “message” to offer their people. When the people start losing interest in a church system, something “religious” is introduced that is supposed to solve the problem and renew the interest.

Mat_13:19 "When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road.

Mat_13:24 He presented another parable to them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field.

Mat_13:38 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one;

There is no question about the Word of the Kingdom being the Good Seed that is SUPPOSED to be sown. Can anyone expect to produce Sons of the Kingdom if no Kingdom Seed is sown?

This is the question we are asking today! What then is the eternal result of sowing any other seed or even worthless seed? Since I wasted so many years of my life sowing “various other seeds”, my warning is to other ministries that are presently making the same mistake as I.

For that reason I want to suggest that there are, presently, common failures in MANY groups of preaching worthless messages that produce NO Kingdom results.

Why is this so important at this time in church history? It appears that the visible church has attempted to present various dry and lifeless concepts, irrelevant messages, new programs, pet doctrines and church dogma as being equal with or identical to the Kingdom Seed. The concept prevails that any message from the Bible is Kingdom Truth and will produce Kingdom Life! In other words, the ignorance of just preaching some message from scripture and assuming that is “sowing Kingdom seed” has produced pitiful results in the visible church. One of the terrible mistakes that is quite common is to preach a salvation from a few scriptures that ignore the Kingdom Requirements. In other words they offer a “salvation” that has no relationship to God’s Kingdom Government! Since the New Covenant arrived WITH the Kingdom Requirements and the New Covenant GRACE and the Dispensation of the Holy Spirit, it seems that all these things should be preached as part of a whole New Kingdom Gospel. If this is true then “New Covenant Salvation” should be preached within that complete complex. In other words “salvation by faith and confession” does not excuse us from the New Covenant Provisions nor the Kingdom Requirements!

This question is what is a deep concern of mine. Does our Kingdom Crop of Mature and Consecrated believers, who are living in the Kingdom Reality, affect our destiny and are they essential for us to pass on into the Government of the World Yet to Come?

I suspect that the Kingdom Truth is that there is a fatal difference between the accepting of the status quo of “Having church” from our responsibility of Preparing a Mature Kingdom People ready to participate in God’s Eternal Purpose! In that same way there is a fatal difference between preaching the Letter of the scripture from preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and revelation of the scripture in the Spirit dimension!

Even when the same spoken word is spoken from the same scripture verses, the result in the congregation is entirely different. Why? The letter is dead so it carries death and always kills! Preaching LIFE is limited to preaching SPIRIT!

These Kingdom Truths should be warning enough for the current ministries that are just preaching facts and information to increase Biblical knowledge but can produce no life. How much POVERTY OF LIFE is conveyed when worthless and irrelevant messages are preached that can never produce Kingdom Fruit?

My thesis is that ONLY that which can impart the Kingdom Life, Reality and obedience to the Kingdom Government, can qualify as Kingdom Seed. Without the Kingdom seed there can be no expectation of Kingdom Fruit that is acceptable to God. There is also quite a difference between sowing Kingdom Seed but not protecting and nourishing the crop so that later we may Harvest a Mature Kingdom (people) Fruit. While this may require different ministries this should be the corporate goal. If one “pastoral ministry” is insufficient to produce this result, what, then, is the solution? Can an ego-centric and self absorbed pastor support such a goal? Many cannot!

The question we are presenting is this; Is the Kingdom Seed the goal or is the Mature Kingdom Fruit, ready to take their place and function in God’s Kingdom, the ultimate goal?

Is planting the Kingdom seed equivalent to producing the Kingdom Fruit? No! Planting the seed is just the first phase of a complete process of producing Disciples of the Kingdom.

There is the process of maturity, that if neglected, will result in a pitiful lacking of experience within the “Restoration of All Things Spoken by the Prophets” and these may be unqualified by God to be part of the First Fruit harvest. Certain basic things MUST take place first, before the final harvest can begin. Why is God delaying sending Jesus, the Christ, and beginning the Tribulation? Two of the things the prophets announced were the New Covenant and the Kingdom of God. To assume that forgiveness of sins is the same as participation in the Restoration of All Things is much too shallow and ignorant!

Act 3:20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.

It would helpful if each group could accurately define the radical difference between Kingdom maturity in contrast to Church maturity. Church maturity is focused upon the outer man and he is evaluated to be at “full growth” when he can participate in Bible Studies and obtain “knowledge” and function in the church activity.

The maturity of the New Inner Man is full growth, mature, when he can fully participate in the Kingdom dimension of LIFE, discipline, function, sharing and obedience! The revealed difference between these two is in our preparation for a personal participation in eternity! This is NOW directly related to our functioning in the will of God and fulfilling His Eternal Purpose, in this dispensation, and during our time on earth! The danger of our failure in limiting Church maturity to knowledge, once again, relates us back to the two trees in Genesis 2. This means that these two trees are still confronting the ministries today! Will we just serve more knowledge on Sunday morning or will we limit our ministry to LIFE and SPIRIT.

While Adam was created innocent, maturity still had to be obtained by participating in the will of God by choosing Life. Even for this “Garden” level of “maturity,” it is the “life” that is essential! Adam and Eve were rejected by preferring and participating in the tree of more knowledge rather than limiting themselves to participating in the Life that was essential to their function in God’s Purpose for them. This was choosing of the “letter” which produced death in Adam and ALL his genealogy. How could we evaluate their eternal loss by choosing knowledge over Life?

For a small insight into God’s Expectation and demand for a proper and acceptable Mature Kingdom Harvest, we will present four different sets of scriptures dealing directly with this subject!

Psalm 80:8 Thou didst remove a vine from Egypt; Thou didst drive out the nations, and didst plant it. 9 Thou didst clear the ground before it, And it took deep root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered with its shadow; And the cedars of God with its boughs. 11 It was sending out its branches to the sea, And its shoots to the River.

From the visible perspective of man, from earth dimension, this Vine was doing quite well! However, from God’s viewpoint something was terribly wrong!

Psalm 80:12 Why hast Thou broken down its hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit? 13 A boar from the forest eats it away, And whatever moves in the field feeds on it. 14 O God of hosts, turn again now, we beseech Thee; Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine, 15 Even the shoot which Thy right hand has planted, And on the son whom Thou hast strengthened for Thyself. 16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Thy countenance.

We find no place in Psalms where God answers the question of WHY God broke down the protection and let the hogs and others in to eat what they want. But, Isaiah, the prophet, clearly and pointedly answers the question. It is the severity of the answer to this question that causes a big doctrinal problem in the church about who God is and what He expects or even demands!

Isaiah 5:1 Let me sing now for my well-beloved A song of my beloved concerning

His vineyard. My well-beloved had a vineyard on a fertile hill. 2 And He dug it all around, removed its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. And He built a tower in the middle of it, And hewed out a wine vat in it; Then He expected it to produce good grapes, But it produced only worthless ones.

Isa 5:3 "And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge between Me and My vineyard. 4 "What more was there to do for My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I expected it to produce good grapes did it produce worthless ones? 5 "So now let Me tell you what I am going to do to My vineyard: I will remove its hedge and it will be consumed; I will break down its wall and it will become trampled ground. 6 "And I will lay it waste; It will not be pruned or hoed, But briars and thorns will come up. I will also charge the clouds to rain noain on it."

Isaiah 5:7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, And the men of Judah His delightful plant. Thus He looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed; For righteousness, but behold, a cry of distress.

Jer 2:21 "Yet I planted you a choice vine, A completely faithful seed. How then have you turned yourself before Me Into the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine?

In God’s evaluation Israel had turned herself “into the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine? What a terrible condemnation for Israel to be called His delightful plant that turned into a “worthless vine.”

The FAITHFUL SEED was planted so the problem was NOT in the seed but in the persons in whom the seed was planted. They just took a casual attitude toward the Sovereign God and His plan for Israel! This is confirmed by Jesus when He remarks about Israel in this parable. I hope everybody can see the “parable” was based upon an actual experience and “history.”

We must reject the theological doctrine and their excuses that the parables are just stories Jesus told and are not suitable to establish doctrine! This is clearly and fully refuted by this example! Jesus was using this example as a direct application for the church age. To dismiss this as irrelevant for the church, under grace, is ignorant!

To simplify what He said; The Sovereign God planted a vineyard (which was Israel) and He expected Israel to serve Him and complete His purpose (produce FRUIT) but Israel was casual and uninterested in what God wanted and just did as they pleased. Still, they expected God’s blessings and promises to continue. Why? They thought they knew God! Therefore, the Sovereign God removed their protection and let the hogs in to destroy His vineyard. Why? Because He has a Sovereign right to demand FRUIT! If Israel failed to produce acceptable fruit, God had no obligation toward it to protect it or care for it. Israel’s attitude is reflected by the church today! The visible church expects all God’s blessings and provisions even if they are producing NOTHING that is eternal nor fit into His Eternal Purpose. Man still has this untenable complaint and excuse today!

Then Israel complained that EVERYTHING WAS GROWING AND WE WERE SENDING OUT SHOOTS TO OTHER REGIONS AND WE WERE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB. Why were you OH, SOVEREIGN GOD so harsh, cruel and so unconcerned about us that you removed our protection? After all WE WERE BUILDING ALL THIS FOR YOU!

Mark 12:1 And He began to speak to them in parables: "A man PLANTED A VINEYARD, AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT, AND DUG A VAT UNDER THE WINE PRESS, AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey.

Mark 12:2 "And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers. 3 "And they took him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. 4 "And again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. 5 "And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some, and killing others. 6 "He had one more to send, a beloved son; he sent him last of all to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' 7 "But those vine-growers said to one another, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours!' 8 "And they took him, and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.

Mark 12:9 "What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others.

Matthew 21:43 "Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it. 44 "And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."

To me, there is no question about God expecting (even demanding) an acceptable Harvest from the seed He provides to be sown in His Field. If the Kingdom Harvest is not acceptable, He will take the Kingdom Away from that person, church, group, people, or nation and appoint another group to take their place in His Vineyard. When the Kingdom is taken away, their protection is also taken away. When GOD NO LONGER “PASSES OVER,” Israel is on her own, either to survive or to be taken captive! Why? They have forfeited the provision of their covenant just to have their independence and thought they could ignore God’s Plan and Purpose!

At the present time, I can think of no lessor treatment the people of God can anticipate if they fail to sow the Kingdom Seed and bring forth a Kingdom Harvest. How can we evaluate the eternal loss experienced when the Kingdom is taken away from a nation, a person or group and given to somebody else!

So few Christians will even realize they “lost the Kingdom” simply because the Kingdom was never preached. This “man-centered gospel,” that is meant to replace the Kingdom message has become very popular today and is copied by many churches! However, this “phony gospel” has only planted worthless and unproductive seeds that has just produced weeds.

When we literally see God’s protection over this nation being taken away, perversion obviously is increasing, our leaders are corrupt and lawless, our debts out of control, our enemies are arming themselves, maybe we should ask the Sovereign God, WHY?

Will God need to wipe every tear from the eyes of those who lost the Kingdom? Probably! And the tears will fill a VERY wet towel unless the Kingdom Reality / Truth along with the Kingdom Seed (the Word of the Kingdom) can sown and become experiential in each of us, quickly!

In Matthew 13 Jesus reveals that the Word of the Kingdom is the Seed of the Kingdom. The Kingdom Seed is sown on PEOPLE to produce something (a Mature Harvest) for God! Therefore, this is not some abstract or generic doctrine, but this SEED is for a direct impartation of something experiential and life giving with an eternal reality connected to God’s Eternal Purpose. To usurp of ignore this Kingdom Message (seed) and substitute another worthless message is extremely dangerous and very ignorant!

Mat 13:23 "And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who { THE MAN} indeed bears fruit, and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty."

This is NOT referring to the person that bore NO FRUIT but at least some fruit in varying amounts of fruit. The one on whom NO SEED was sown will surely bring forth NO FRUIT at all. It seems so stupid to give the excuse, “ But, brother, we are already saved” so this does not apply to us! Or we often hear; To produce FRUIT FOR GOD is just works that can never “save us.” Since “save us” is the goal, God’s Purpose becomes irrelevant.

If all this is Eternal Truth we should ask; Why is this seed so different from a list of generic messages that are preached every Sunday? (After a preacher has preached his list of generic messages he is transferred to another church so he can repeat them there.) Why is this so pitiful? The Generic seed can be sown on the natural man and he may assimilate it intellectually and it may become usable knowledge for church activity. What if all this is rejected by God as worthless seed that brought forth NOTHING eternal! What if the life’s work of that minister has been judged as unproductive, worthless and irrelevant? What is his “reward?” We can only guess!

However, IF the Kingdom Seed can be sown on the New Covenant Inner Man, it may become LIFE and SPIRIT and TRUTH in the inner man. This difference in the “man” (either inner or outer) will determine the results we can expect in the time of Harvest. How can this possible be true?

The LIFE is in the seed. The life of every plant originates in the seed. Even human life begins in the seed. (Semen) The Kingdom Seed MUST be sown in the NEW LIFE of the New Inner Man. Why? That is because the New Man must have a new food, a kind of different of nourishment! This eliminates everything that is just a generic message that has no life! That “Bread of Life, which is from Heaven,” originates in the Kingdom of God!

Within the Kingdom Seed is Kingdom LIFE, in which is the Kingdom truth. Within the Kingdom Truth is the Kingdom Reality. We are defining the Kingdom Reality as the Kingdom Character, the Kingdom Discipline, the Kingdom Fruit and fulfilling God’s Expectation of a Mature Harvest suitable to participate in the Government of the World Yet To Come. Since a generic message is NOT KINGDOM SEED there is NO KINGDOM LIFE IN IT and therefore it will produce a worthless harvest! Tares, weeds and worthless fruit, even in great abundance, begins in bad seed, sown by worthless ministries!

This worthless harvest is the focus of this document and our theme is this; Everything but Kingdom Fruit is unacceptable to God.

Mat 13:38 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels.

There is bad, worthless seed that is continually being be sown in multiple churches today.

The devil is busy sowing his own seed that is currently producing a big harvest. This harvest is the sons of the evil one which are the tares! If there is no EQUAL harvest of Sons Of The Kingdom, the visible church will be in danger of being over-run and become a sickly minority out of shear numbers produced by the devil.

But why are you so concerned about “Harvest” because “WE ARE ALREADY SAVED!” Well, the reality is this; the HARVEST is not for me but for God and He has the Sovereign Right to DEMAND a Full Fruit Harvest that equals or exceeds HIS EXPECTATION and to meet HIS NEED to fulfill His Eternal Purpose!

In other words, where WE stand in our stage of maturity, at the time of harvest, and at what degree of maturity we have achieved that is ready for Harvest, will determine our sequence of being part of the Kingdom Harvest! This will determine our eternal destiny and our place in the Eternal Tabernacle of God!

That means that we must begin to define “harvest” according to His Expectation instead of accepting ANY OTHER standard for harvest or some earthly and man’s evaluation of harvest.

For example; We cannot evaluate church work, faithfulness, tithing, a redeemed life or preaching as Kingdom Fruit. While none of these things are wrong, and may act as evidence of a changed life and direction, they are NOT the Fruit God Expects for His Kingdom! This “KINGDOM FRUIT” defines that which will translate into His Eternal Purpose or into and functioning Authority within His Government! This Kingdom Maturity qualifies us participate in His Kingdom Government over the World yet to COME.

The problem with our current system of having “church” is that we seem to be satisfied to preach things that are scripturally true but not yet personally experiential. An example could be Psalm 91.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!" 3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper, And from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. 5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day; 6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not approach you.

IF this is currently true or not in the Church Age is not the important question. Of course, this scripture is ETERNALLY TRUE! The right question to ask within the church system, for a personal response, is this; IS THIS TRUE IN MY LIFE ? Is this my doctrine or is it my experience? Is the Kingdom my doctrine OR my experience? Is Mount Zion my doctrine OR is it my experience? Our eternal destiny is determined by our experience of a Kingdom Transformation into a Life within His Inner Government.

The “Spiritual knowledge” is certainly necessary to lead us to the experience. This Knowledge comes when we preach THE Authentic Gospel of the Kingdom! However, having the Kingdom Knowledge but without the Kingdom Experience should be considered as a failure! This failure may be ascribed to either the ministry or the person on whom the seed fell. Some soil is so unprepared that no amount of seed will produce an acceptable Harvest. Why? The Kingdom SEED must result in a Kingdom Experience!

Is dwelling in the secret place of the Most High my doctrine or is it my experience? While the doctrine is true and exciting it is ONLY the experience that produces a Kingdom Harvest!

To define the Kingdom SEED, we must be very accurate and speak boldly and with confidence and with authority! Why? Everything (all the New Covenant provision) we need to produce a Kingdom Harvest is inherent within the Kingdom Seed. The Life, the character, the Laws, the discipline, the attitudes, the vision, the power, the revelation and the consecration is inherent within the seed.

Of course, developing these characteristics is a matter of the growth of the New Inner Man, which is the New Creation and is result of having Christ, the SEED, IN ME! This produces the New Covenant Man. A Mature Kingdom Harvest demands a Mature New Species of Man and NOT an improved Adam / dirt man. Why? That is because the “Kingdom Harvest” is intrigately liked to the “Kingdom man.” It is the Seed of the Kingdom that produces the NEW Covenant Man, the Sons of the Kingdom. These are the MATURE Sons of the Kingdom! It is the Sons of the Kingdom that produces the FRUIT of the KINGDOM. It is these Sons of the Kingdom who go forth to sow the seed of the Kingdom into the next generation. That is why WE must produce Sons of the Kingdom in this generation!

It is the New Covenant, Kingdom person in the church age, who goes forth to sow the SEED of the Kingdom to his generation. The SEED of The Kingdom is released from the Government of the Kingdom, which is inherent in the Life of the Kingdom, within the Mature Kingdom Person. A mature Kingdom Person is one who is experiencing AND obeying the Government and the Laws of the Kingdom as a daily inner life reality! When we are lawless there can be NO LIFE released because there can be NO Functioning Kingdom Government present in the minister.

If all this is true what is the greatest need we have in the visible church? I say “in the visible church” because there can be NO LACK of the Kingdom in the church He is building!

The ministries must first become the Sons of the Kingdom before they can raise up Sons of the Kingdom. The main failure today is revealed by the extreme shortage of MATURE SONS OF THE KINGDOM. Why is that possible? That is because, even called ministries, are preaching every thing EXCEPT the Kingdom and God’s Eternal Purpose. They are raising up carnal, ego centric, ignorant and lawless sons of the pastor, disciples who know NOTHING of the Kingdom of God. Neither are they subject to His Inner Government nor can they obey a government which they have not received by Consecration. Therefore, they cannot be experiencing that demanded obedience to His Government that is essential to His New Covenant Priesthood.

For that reason they can not become a Kingdom of Priests nor the Sons of the Kingdom. Why? Both the Priesthood and the Sons of the Kingdom are obedient to His Kingdom Government, within, and have grown up to a Kingdom Maturity! The Sons of the Kingdom are being prepared as the First Fruits of the Kingdom Harvest. Ignoring the Kingdom Government of God, because of a perverted gospel of grace, has caused a great deception in the visible church. The GRACE for forgiveness of sins is considered as final and so it is a substituted for the GRACE of obedience, necessary for a full Kingdom Salvation.

Without a clear picture of the Tabernacle of Moses, which is a copy of the True Tabernacle of Heaven, the progression of our preparation and this diversity and progression of GRACE cannot be fully understood. When Absolute Grace is preached as a substitute for our full preparation and maturity, the Kingdom demands are generally ignored. The doctrinal concept is this; The Kingdom Demands are rejected because they are “just Works” which the Bible warns us is worthless and a great deception.

The “proof” is given as “We are only saved by faith through grace.” This ignorance assumes that Entering the Kingdom is the same as forgiveness of sins. I was told by a pastor that being born again, born of water and born of Spirit is all included in forgiveness of sins. Therefore, entering the Kingdom is automatic when we are forgiven. Once we are in the Kingdom we can never be cast out nor can we be removed because we are stumbling blocks for others. The Kingdom can never be taken away from a believer and given to another because the believer has eternal life! At these times we have to laugh to keep from crying!

It is difficult to accept the fact that this ignorance can penetrate an experienced ministry and some denominations! We often hear that the Kingdom is ONLY for Israel, during the millennium, and not for the church age. Why? That, they say, is because ONLY GRACE is necessary for the church “to be saved.”

Even though that is scripture, “being saved” is not the same as receiving the Kingdom and walking in obedience to the Government of God. The revealed Demands of the Kingdom should not be considered as FALSE DOCTRINE nor as the ANTI-CHRIST MESSAGE of the FALSE PROPHET!

“Anything, but GRACE, is a disgrace” is a popular saying among the ignorant!

Of course there is the GRACE OF THE KINGDOM that is to provide an additional ability for us to do the will of God and to walk in obedience to the highest Law for the redeemed person. Surely, we will need ALL THE GRACE POSSIBLE to meet the Kingdom Demands! However, to confuse this Abundance of Grace with the grace for forgiveness of sins is nearly unbelievable. It is because of ignorance like this that I have lost any desire to preach in most visible churches. The arguments that come against the Kingdom must be inspired by the devil simply because they are so unreasonable and sometimes violent. Today, because of ignorance of the Kingdom, too many visible churches have become huge fields of stones, weeds, untillable soil and impossible to SOW anything except what everyone has heard so many times it is ingrained in the whole person.

Since the Kingdom is a New Message in nearly every church, it is immediately dismissed as false doctrine so everyone is warned not to be deceived by something that was ONLY meant for Israel during the Millennium. Everybody is instructed that IF THE KINGDOM WAS NOW the Lion would be laying down with the lamb and children would be playing with snakes. Since this is NOT happening, the Gospel of the Kingdom is irrelevant so it should be rejected!

Mat 24:10 "And at that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another. "And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many. "And because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. "But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved. Mat 24; 14"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.

Before the tribulation, when many fall away and when lawlessness is increased THEN the Gospel of the Kingdom MUST BE PREACHED before the end comes.

To speak about the Lion laying down with the lamb during the church age is stupid and anyone who thinks that way should repent and be reconciled to the Kingdom of God!
