The kingdom of God: What does it mean to inherit, or not inherit it — 4 Comments

  1. How can you avoid Gods presence? Is the fire gonna keep you away from being in his presence? Site references when you decide to preach something.

    • I appreciate your comment.

      I suppose your reference is Psalm 139:7-12, which testifies to the impossibility of fleeing from God’s presence. It does not speak of being banished from God’s presence. I cited Matthew 24:51, where it says “depart from me.” A parallel passage is Luke 13:25-28. Five other verses in Matthew declare that some will be cast into the outer darkness or the furnace of fire. Can you cite God’s presence in those places?

      But here is my point: Not inheriting the kingdom is not necessarily the same as being banished from it.

  2. Uhm, I think the answer is in the first few lines. “Know ye not that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God”. A part in the Bible says we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. As long as we believe on the son of God, is death, resurrection and ascension we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. We are dead to sin, we don’t have the ability to sin in us. We all should grow up into the fullness of who we are. I believe the Bible was referring to children that are not saved yet.

    • Thanks for reading and for commenting, but you give the answer to a different question than this post asks: Given that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God, what does that mean for them?
