Who is worthy of the Kingdom?
Who is worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven? The ungodly or the godly? Surely the godly shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven! Who is the godly? One that follows Godís commandments and instructions to enter the Kingdom of Heaven shall surely be as godly as God Himself. Man was already created as the image of God, Godís essence is in all of us. So as to say, God surely is among us, but some people fail to see it and even shut their eyes off to this Truth. If one does not acknowledge that he indeed has Godís essence in him and he needs to realize it and use it, he shall never be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven!
The pure in Heart shall enter the Kingdom
DT 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
DT 10:12 And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?
