The Government
of God

     Luke 12:32.  Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

      Matthew 12: 22-28 Then was brought to Jesus one possessed with a devil, the man was blind and dumb: and Jesus healed him, so much so that the blind and dumb man both spoke and could now see. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come to you. Or as it says in Luke 11: 20: But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

      Luke 10: 1-2, 8-11, 17-19 1. After these things Jesus appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before his face into every city and place, where he himself would come. Therefore he said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray  therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest. And into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are there, and say to them, The kingdom of God is come close to you. But  what ever city you enter, if they don't receive you , go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which clings on us, we do wipe off against you: not withstanding be sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come close to you. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject to us through your name. And Jesus said to them, I saw Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

      Colossians 1: 12-13 12. Giving thanks to the Father, who has made us able to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

      Hebrews 12: 28-29 28. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.

      Matthew 13: 31. Another parable put he forth to them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and planted in his field: 32. Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches of it. 33. Then another parable spoke he to them; The kingdom of heaven is like yeast, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was fermented.
