    ACTS 1.1 the former treatise have I made o theophilus of all that JESUS began both to do and teach --1:2-- until the day in which HE was taken up after that he through the Holy Spirit had given commandments unto the apostles whom HE had chosen JOHN 12:49 for I have not spoken of myself but THE FATHER which sent ME he gave ME a commandment what I should say and what I should speak

    An external kingdom wd be no threat to Satan, As our carnal mind is his seat the very enemy of God,thus the kingdom has to be INTERNAL, WITH IN US,thats y the good seed is sown in our hearts that Christ might be born in us,Destroying our propensity to sin, As them that are born of God cannot sin, That good seed is gonna remain with in us which is christ in us,TH SON OF MAN MEANING MANKINDS FRUIT.

    That which is of the flesh is flesh and that which is of the Spirit is spirit made of the True and Genuine Temple Made without Hands which is Christ in you. Anyone can read the Holy Bible backwords and forwords and never recieve anything except it be given him from above beloved. Christ in you is the master key to the Words interpretation via. divine revealation of His Holy Word. Shalom.

If the kingdom were here now nobody wd look for a 2 nd coming, the kingdom does not come till the woman births the manchild rev 12 v 10 GBU

    This book is the caveat or stepping stone to the book of Romans that runs through to the book of Jude and stops their and not Revelation. Why ? Because we are the church age or gentiles Kingdom of God temporary age of{ Grace-Salvation-Holy Ghost-Nine Manifestations thereof} which is the blueprint Paul set forth us all. This is where we should all be at and doing. HOPE = RESTORATION = ELIJAH.

    ROMANS 15:18 FOR I WILL NOT DARE TO SPEAK OF ANY OF THOSE THINGS WHICH CHRIST HATH NOT WROUGHT BY ME TO MAKE THE GENTILES OBEDIENT BY WORD AND DEED --- TITUS 2:11 FOR THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGETH SALVATION HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN --2:12-- TEACHING US THAT DENYING UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY LUSTS WE SHOULD LIVE SOBERLY RIGHTEOUSLY AND GODLY IN THIS PRESENT WORLD
