The Kingdom Of Heaven And The Kingdom Of God Compared, Contrasted And Rightly Divided

The gospel of the kingdom as preached by Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the gospel of the grace of God as revealed by Jesus Christ to the Apostle Paul are not the same. In fact, they’re not even close to being identical.

The gospel of the grace of God’s free gift of salvation by redemption in Christ death, burial, and resurrection to save sinners from Hell. It is the FINISHED blood atonement that imputes GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS to sinners.

The gospel of the kingdom as preached by Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the gospel of the grace of God as revealed by Jesus Christ to the Apostle Paul are not the same. In fact, they’re not even close to being identical. They are two completely different gospels preached to two completely different groups of people with two completely different messages.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV

The scripture is very plain and direct concerning this. This foundational doctrinal truth is not difficult to comprehend or understand, you’ve simply have to believe the Bible. If you are a new born babe in Christ and this is your first time hearing this, you’d do well to follow the example of the Bereans:

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10-11 (KJV)

People who reject this doctrinal truth of the differences between the two gospels do so because they are either too lazy to run the references or heretical blasphemers. Most of the ones that I have dealt with personally have been lazy. They would rather submit themselves to their emotions combined with how they were raised to believe what their religion teaches before they submit themselves to simply believing God’s words.

“Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” Proverbs 13:13 (KJV)

Now let’s go into detail breaking down both gospels beginning with the gospel of the kingdom:

“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” Matthew 4:23 (KJV)

In order to gain full clarity on the gospel of the kingdom, you must first heed God’s promises to the Jewish Nation of Israel in the Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic Covenant.

ABRAHAMIC COVENANT:

The promise of LITERAL land – (Genesis 12:1). God called Abraham from Ur of the Chaldees to a land that He promised to give him. This promise is once again reiterated in Genesis 13:14–18. The land aspect of the Abrahamic Covenant is expanded in Deuteronomy 30:1–10, which is also the Palestinian Covenant. What is especially critical to note is that the land grant God promised to Abraham and to his seed was also promised to be an EVERLASTING COVENANT:

“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:7-8 (KJV)

The promise of kingly descendants – (Genesis 12:2). God promised Abraham that He would make a great nation out of him. Abraham, who was old and childless (Genesis 12:4), was promised many descendants. This promise is amplified in Genesis 17:6 where God promised that nations and kings would descend from Abraham. This promise (which is expanded in the Davidic Covenant of 2 Samuel 7:12–16) would eventuate in the Davidic throne with Messiah’s kingdom rule over the Jewish Nation of Israel.

MOSAIC COVENANT:

In Deuteronomy 28, God gives Moses along with the Jewish Nation of Israel the commandments, statues, and judgements for staying alive, wealthy, safe, and healthy in the land. God also gives them the horror of what will happen when they disobey God’s commandments, statues, and judgements in the land. BUT what is critical and often overlooked in the Mosaic Covenant is what God introduces to the Jewish Nation of Israel through Moses in Exodus chapter 4:

“And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee. And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow. And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.  And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first SIGN, that they will believe the voice of the latter SIGN. And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two SIGNS, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.” Exodus 4:1-9 (KJV)

LITERAL, VISIBLE, EARTHLY, SIGNS TO UNBELIEVING JEWS TO LEAD THEM TO THE PROMISE LAND AND OR REVELATION FROM GOD:

1 Corinthians 1:22 KJV For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

From Exodus chapter 4 through the rest of the entire Bible, God gives the Jewish nation of Israel LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY, SIGNS, to lead or guide them to their promised LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY, LAND, to fulfil the prophecy of the LITERAL, PHYSICAL, PROMISED, JEWISH MESSIAH, reigning from a LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY THRONE, in LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY JERUSALEM from where He will establish his LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY KINGDOM.

Are you beginning to understand now why the gospel of the kingdom is titled the gospel of THE KINGDOM??

DAVIDIC COVENANT:

“And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the LORD had given him rest round about from all his enemies; That the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains. And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the LORD is with thee. And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar? Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.  I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.” 2 Samuel 7:1-17 (KJV)

God promised David that the promised Jewish Messiah would come through his seed and that his throne would be established forever. This is why Christ is often referred to as the son of David.

The Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic, Jewish Covenants God established with his people encapsulate the gospel of the kingdom:

“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:5-8 (KJV)

When Jesus preaches the gospel of the kingdom during his earthly ministry, he is the son of David (Davidic Covenant) of the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Abrahamic Covenant) with the literal, physical, earthly Jewish signs that accompany his Messiahship (Mosaic Covenant).

NOTICE: So far, no where in the gospel of the kingdom is belief in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for sinners mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is the mystery of Jew and gentile in one body mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is ‘walk by faith, not by sight’ mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is salvation by grace through faith mentioned or preached. The gospel of the kingdom is a Jewish gospel preached to Jews that accompany literal signs, miracles, and wonders to lead the Jewish nation of Israel to the promise land or to give give revelation from God to the JEWS.

GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD:

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 (KJV)

The gospel of the grace of God was revealed to the Apostle Paul neither from men or Old Testament prophets. The gospel of the grace of God was revealed to the Apostle Paul by revelation from the ascended Lord Jesus Christ:

“But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” Galatians 1:11-12 (KJV)

What exactly is the gospel of the grace of God? Does it have to do with Christians spreading a Jewish earthly kingdom? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with Christians doing signs, miracles, and wonders for unbelieving Jews to lead them to the promise land? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have to do with Christians walking by SIGHT and not by FAITH? NO. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with Christians keeping God’s commandments, statues, and judgments to receive eternal life? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with water baptismal regeneration? No. Well then what exactly is the gospel of the grace of God that the Apostle Paul preached?

“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 Christ 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:” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15 (KJV)

“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Romans 4:4-8 (KJV)

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)

“Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.” Romans 5:14-15 (KJV).

The gospel of the grace of God’s free gift of salvation by redemption in Christ death, burial, and resurrection to save sinners from Hell. It is the FINISHED blood atonement that imputes GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS to sinners.

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:24-26 (KJV)

BEFORE the Apostle Paul straightened out Peter’s doctrine in Acts 15, the Apostle Peter NEVER preached that Christ died for ANYBODY. From Acts chapter 1-14 the only thing that Peter preaches to the Jews is water-based baptismal repentance for KILLING THEIR MESSIAH:

“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:” Acts 2:22-23 (KJV)

“And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.” Acts 3:12-13 (KJV)

“But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.” Acts 3:14-15 (KJV)

“Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.” Acts 4:8-10 (KJV)

“And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.” Acts 5:27-30 (KJV)

Jesus Of Nazareth For The Past Two Thousand Years Has Been Building A City Called New Jerusalem That Will Be The Forever Home Of The Born Again Believer

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Those John:14 mansions that Jesus the Carpenter of Nazareth has been building for the last 2,000 years is New Jerusalem, that holy city that comes down from God out of Heaven

Have you ever watched any of those pet shows on channels like The Dodo where they talk about people adopting pets and bringing them to their new ‘forever home’? Your King James Bible talks about that as well, only it’s you who gets adopted, and your forever Home is a place called the New Jerusalem. New Jerusalem is the mansions from John 14, that Jesus the carpenter of Nazareth, has been building for us for the past two thousand years. Born again believers in the Church Age are placed into the Body of Christ and we are the Bride of Christ.

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3 (KJB)

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2 (KJB)

The forever Home of the Christian, Jew or Gentile, will be not Heaven but New Jerusalem, which comes down from God out of Heaven, it’s not in Heaven, and it will be the dwelling place for the Lamb’s wife, which is the redeemed Church. Please note the following about the Lamb’s wife:

  • She is engaged to the Lord Jesus Christ: “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 (KJB). In the context of this passage, to whom is Paul speaking? He is speaking to the Church at Corinth that is made up of born again Christians.
  • She makes herself ready for marriage: “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7 (KJB). Here we see the Body of Christ, the Church, having now gone through the Judgement Seat of Christ, all set and ready to be forever joined to her Beloved, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • She is now taken to her forever Home: “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” Revelation 21:9 (KJB). So why is New Jerusalem referred to as a bride? Because that beautiful City is filled to overflowing with a blood-bought Bride, that’s why. The City is not the Bride, it houses the Bride.

Our apostle Paul tells us in Galatians 3:29 that if we are saved we are counted with faithful Abraham, who was not a Jew, and faithful Abraham did some things that all Christians ought to be doing. First, Hebrews 11:8 shows us that when God called him, Abraham followed not knowing exactly where God was leading him. That’s how all Christians should follow after God. Secondly, after Abraham got to following God, he lost his love for the things of this world, and started looking for an heavenly city, whose “builder and maker was God” in Hebrews 11:10. Where is that City? It is New Jerusalem, of course.

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ. When a man falls in love, he becomes engaged, gets married, and then takes her to live with him in her new home. This three-step process is clearly seen in scripture in relation to Jesus and His Bride, which is the Church.

“Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:” Colossians 1:24 (KJB)

What Is More Important To You Than The Book, The Blood And The Soon-Coming Blessed Hope Of Flight #777 On Titus213 Airlines?

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is? This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power.

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

I do some of my best thinking while driving, and yesterday I had about 18 hours of “thinking time” whilst driving all the way from Florida up to North Jersey, where I was born and raised. While driving, I started thinking about all the times in the 31 years since I got saved, that the Lord got me through, made a way when there was no way, and did things for me that I was in no wise worthy to receive. I thought about where my walk with the Lord started, and it started with that Book.

“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” Psalm 138:2 (KJB)

How well I still remember that night on March 14th, 1991, when I opened that King James Bible for the the very first time, and I read what Jesus did for me on the cross. God loved me so much, that He died in my place on the cross. Jesus took on Himself the punishment that I so rightly deserved. All I had to do to be saved was make that Heavenly transaction, my sins for His righteousness. Alone in my room, with no Christian friends, never having been to a Christian church (I was a Catholic), I bowed my head, got on my knees and asked God to save me. My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power. This is why we put such emphasis on our Free Bible and Gospel Tract Program, what is more important than putting God’s preserved word in the hands of people who want it but can’t afford it?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 (KJB)

As I drove all day and all night yesterday, I thought about the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ, how amazingly easy it is to get saved. The Bible tells you that you owe a debt that you cannot pay, and that Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe. Take that free payment and live for life everlasting, reject that payment and you pay for your sins for eternity in the Lake of Fire. What is more simple than that? You don’t wind up in Hell for any sin you commit, you wind up in Hell because you rejected the payment for the sin you commit. Want to go to Heaven? Trust Jesus Christ. Want to go to Hell? Trust anything else, and you’ll get there.

I love our twice-weekly King James Bible studies, and I love it when the Lord takes us deep and shows us some stuff, but let me tell you something. Sometimes it’s really good to pull off the to side and just do a little private shouting to the Lord for His mercy, grace and goodness in letting you get saved. Understanding the deep things of Bible prophecy is great, but so is remembering His great love for you on the cross, and the job He left you here to do!

Only ONE life, ’twill SOON be past, and ONLY what’s done for JESUS CHRIST will last!

NTEB RADIO BIBLE STUDY: ‘Take, Eat: This Is My Body, Which Is Broken For You: This Do In Remembrance Of Me’, Understanding The Lord’s Supper

On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are doing something in tonight’s Bible study we have never done before, we are celebrating the communion of the Lord’s Supper together as the Body of Christ. We are doing it in the context of a Bible studying showing what the Last Supper actually was, a remembrance of the Lord’s body and shed blood, and what it is not, the ongoing ‘sacrifice of the mass’ that the Roman Catholics call transubstantiation.

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Jesus made one sacrifice, never to be repeated, and Paul says that when we have a memorial to that singular event, there are certain conditions that must be met. Join us tonight for our first-ever NTEB church family communion service, remember to have fruit juice and bread handy.

The Last Supper was actually a Passover seder, and it was a remembrance of when God brought the Jews out of Egyptian slavery by having them apply the shed blood of a lamb on the doorposts of their homes. In the Upper Room that night, in the gospel of John, the Lord was telling His disciples about how His blood was going to be shed, and how that He was that Lamb. Our apostle Paul tells that when we have communion, it is a memorial to His great sacrifice.

“For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.” 1 Corinthians 11:23-25 (KJB)

On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are doing something in tonight’s Bible study we have never done before, we are celebrating the communion of the Lord’s Supper together as the Body of Christ. We are doing it in the context of a Bible studying showing what the Last Supper actually was, a remembrance of the Lord’s body and shed blood, and what it is not, the ongoing ‘sacrifice of the mass’ that the Roman Catholics call transubstantiation. Jesus made one sacrifice, never to be repeated, and Paul says that when we have a memorial to that singular event, there are certain conditions that must be met. Join us tonight for our first-ever NTEB church family communion service, remember to have fruit juice and bread handy, as we study what the Lord’s Supper actually was, and what it was not.

This King James Bible study begins tonight starting at 9:00 PM EST, please join us and bring a friend!

Your Generous Donations Make These Live King James Radio Bible Studies Possible!

On our Sunday and Wednesday night radio bible study, we are preaching and teaching the gospel of the grace of God, rightly divided and dispensationally correct, to a truly global audience who is hungry for the word. These programs would not be possible without your generous support. Listen to just a few of the recent comments we have gotten:

  • “Hi Geoffrey and staff, Today is my one year anniversary that I got saved on your podcast!  I am now a KJB only, I threw away my other two versions I had.  I was shocked to learn of the differences and how the new versions twist the words of God, and dilute the message at best. Thank you for the fabulous bible  education and fire for the Lord.  I donate on your website throughout the year.  Thanks for all that you do.” Donna
  • “I have been reading on NTEB for about 5 years and listening as I can to your services.  If I could list the encouragement, the doctrines, the awareness of what is coming (our blessed hope) but also the last days culture in which I live that you have taught me, this email wouldn’t fit in this letter. Because of you, I am a stronger more equipped soldier for Jesus Christ. Thank you sir for you, your ministry in my life. Faithful to the end because He lives in me.” Ruthie Dennis
  • “My name is Carl N from Mumbai, India. My wife Andrea and I have been ardent listeners of your Bible Study and news update podcasts from the very start of the lockdown last year. In fact we make it a point to share these links with our family and friends… many times getting into trouble, as the truth upsets people. We cannot even begin to tell you how this has changed our lives and walk with the Lord. Thank you so much for what you’ve been doing for the Kingdom!! We’ve even switched Bible translations to the KJV. For the last month or so, you’ve been speaking about making end times Bible study materials available. This got us really excited, as we’re eager to use these for our weekly house church group.” Carl N – Mumbai, India
  • “I listen to your podcasts often. Very enlightening and I’ve learned a lot. I’m Catholic and followed the Holy Bible throughout my life however, since listening to your podcasts, I’ve learned much more. I recently sent NTEB a small donation. I’d like to do so again in the future. I’ve also signed up for NTEB chatroom. Anyways, I have a downloaded version of KJB on my computer and I follow your Bible Study with my pdf version KJB. You have offered to send out printed version of KJB if requested. If not too much trouble, when you or your staff get the opportunity please send me a copy.” Kevin W – Frankfurt, Germany
  • Just wanted to let you know that your ministry is producing fruit. After listening to the studies and church on NTEB, I was motivated to write witness letters along with NTEB gospel tracks to friends from my hometown who I know are not saved. I sent two of the letters to former Catholic priests of mine….I attached the response from him urging me to read the book “Prove It!.” My wife and I have been placing your gospel tracks in different places we visit. This coming Sunday, I am hosting my first Bible study in my house with some people in our neighborhood. Tomorrow evening I have been given a chance to teach the lesson to our youth church group (our church is very Laodicean), and I am going to talk to the youth on end times. Thank you so much for your ministry and encouraging us to get something done for Jesus while we still can! Thomas B 
  • “The sole purpose of this email to you is to let you know how much we have been blessed by your amazing ministry/website. ‘We’ is my wife and I, in our early forties, 3 kids, professing, churchgoing, bible believing Christians in The Netherlands.  Since two months, I listen to your bible studies on Sunday evening, and since this week also to your prophecy podcast. I listen to them in the archives, because of the 6 hour time difference. The shofar and the blessing at 0:30 into the study never fails to make tears in my eyes. We are praying for you, we are praying for your voice, that it lasts in these incredible busy times for you. Listening to your podcasts, you seem to do it effortlessly, talking, scanning the chatbox for questions, diving into the texts, from Genesis to Revelation and everything in between, I love it when you realize after 1:30h into the study, actually a lot more subjects need to be addressed! Thank you for all your work and effort, you are doing an amazing job. Although it all seems effortlessly, I know it is not…Our faith is strengthened by your work and we are able to testify in a better way to the people around us!” Wouter D. van der Wiel – Netherlands
  • “Wanted to send you encouragement and thank you for all you are doing!! I’ve been reading from this website for about 5 years and I’ve been on this at least 10 times a day. It’s the most honest prophecy website in history. And you have ministered to me greatly. This lockdown has been amazing as God gets us unto himself and smooths out the paths for us. I was reading devotional from Kenneth Copeland and during that time you had really hit That ministries hard. I was not Word Faith but I was feeding off his teaching. During this time I have removed Kenneth Copeland I wanted to thank you for your exposure of his ministry. Holy Spirit is truly the leader of all truths. The bible study on Bill Gates was tremendous. And I had the same check in my spirit as you did. He’s the guy that gonna lead this one world revolution Amazing times we live in. I’m super excited and living in total victory and peace. Once again thank you for the time you put in your reward in heaven will truly be great. Looking forward to this coming week. My prayer tonight is this …Father send Your Son!! DG
  • Thank you oh so much for sound teaching. I am so thankful and blessed for clicking on your channel. I have been on your Facebook page since 2011 and never subscribed to you-tube channel until today. I loved the live recording of singing, what a delight to hear the joy of the Lord in the voices of the congregation. So wonderful to hear the part about Luke 12:36, that has made my eyebrows furrow when I read and therefore I have always steadfast to not leaning on my own understanding. May God continue to bless you, your family friends and loved ones. All Glory be to Jesus, my Saviour Redeemer and King, Amen.” Susan Anderson
  • Loved this teaching! Presented in a clear contextual manner that was easy to follow along. You connected the dots for me that had previously brought so much confusion, namely the 4th seal covenant, the 5th seal tribulation saints, and the 6th seal 2nd Coming of Christ AFTER the wedding of the Body/Bride of Christ IN HEAVEN. Wow, after 41 years since my being born again by the Holy Spirit in to the Body of Christ, I finally have the answers to end the confusion. What joy and peace has flooded my heart! Thank you for this encouraging teaching of the Word.” SB
  • “I am from Sri Lanka and listen to the radio Bible study every week.” Nihal Perera

Nothing thrills my soul like teaching the word of God, it is what the Lord called me to do 29 years ago, and Now The End Begins is the vehicle in which I am able to do it. How exciting it is to be able to teach the Bible to tens of thousands of people per year. Like I told you with the first post of 2020, I have dedicated myself now full-time to NTEB, and it is only through your generous support that such a thing is possible.

God Bless You , also your Ministry and your family. IN JESUS MIGHT NAME.” T. Muto
  • “Jesus. I am now 64 years old and never in all the years I’ve been a Christian was I able to grow in the Lord as much as I have in the last past year. All because of our blessed brother’s work Geoffrey Grider who as the bravery of standing fast forward without fear of claiming the truth of God by the power of his love in Jesus Christ. May God bless you abundantly to the end my dear brother… ROMANS: 8: 36,37,38” Mireille Anderson
  • “I met you at the car dealership earlier this year. We spoke briefly, then you handed me a card and told me to check out the website. You left. A few minutes later, you returned to tell me not to forget to look up the website. I told you…” I already did. I already subscribed.” In that short time we spoke, I experienced from you…a total stranger…peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, compassion, and love. I am convinced that God sent you to share the Good News that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. For that, and for the work you are doing for the Kingdom of God, I say…Thank you and God Bless You.” Sonia Merced
  • “I really enjoy the emails and Bible studies! I haven’t found a church and enjoy your services very much! Be blessed brother!” Marcia Mann
  • “You and your organization are on the front lines in the Battle For Truth…. current events, end times, and trying to awaken a sleeping laodicean Church. Thank you brother for fighting for us and all your teaching and insight God bless…” Daniel Cartrette
  • “I’m a KJB believer. We’re so close to being “caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I have many lost family who don’t want the truth, including my husband & son. I’ve been banned from seeing my grandsons since I comforted the 4 1/2 year old with sharing Jesus loving the little children & telling him about the one who created him last he stayed overnight March 3rd. He was so excited to hear about Jesus! His dad (my son) was angry that I told him & wants me to apologize. I never will do so. If my own family won’t hear, I know there’s others searching for the truth. My heart grieves for all the lost who will spend eternity in hell if they reject the Lord Jesus Christ, the expectant hope of the world. He is not willing that any should perish. God bless your ministry, Geoffrey! (I continue to pass out your tracts & you’re on my prayer list!)” LouAnn Benham
  • “Love the Sunday night bible study. I want to support someone who has the passion for the lost like Geoffrey does and rightly divides the word of God. God bless you.” Teresa Carey
  • “I give because not many news outlets are brave enough or Godly enough to tell these stories from a Christian’s point of view. I see stories here that will not be seen anywhere else.” William Grayshaw
