How to Get Into the Kingdom of God

Written by

What is the Kingdom of God and how can a person become a part of it?

Anyone can run to be a part of God's new kingdom. All that is needed is a sincere desire to do God’s will and learn the ways He wants us to follow. To begin with, a person has to understand that the kingdom of God is the new government that Almighty Jehovah will some day establish to rule over all. The term "gospel of the kingdom" simply means the "good news" of His perfect, forthcoming government.

Jehovah sent his beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to preach about this new government and to start choosing individuals to be a part of it. At that time, he provided his followers with a specific set of principles they were to adhere to. His followers are also known as "disciples", which means pupils, or ones learning. Just as at Jesus' time, those who follow him now continue to learn through the words his Father gave him, as well by the words of the prophets and others who God appointed to record  the Holy Bible. Those words help to instruct us in how we need to conduct ourselves.

Christ's disciples strive to be like him in their thoughts, beliefs and actions, which are governed only by the true teachings defined in the scriptures (Holy Bible). They desire to serve both Almighty God, Jehovah, and His Son Christ Jesus, and do not pick and choose only those commandments they desire to. The goal for living this way is to have the opportunity to enter into the glorious, eternal kingdom to come.

Here are some important points that you need to know, followed by a few scriptures you can reference on each:

Know who the one true God is, and what His name is. Show Him reverence.
(Proverbs 30:4, Exodus 6:2-3, Psalm 83:18, Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 2:1-5, Hebrews 12:28)  

Know that Jesus Christ is the Son of Almighty God, and was the very first creation of Jehovah.
(John 17:3, Colossians 1:12-21, Revelation 3:14, John 14:28)

Study and research God's word regularly, and prove all things.  Make sure that what you learn is the truth, taught by God's true ministers in the Bible and not by false ministers.
(2 Timothy 2:15, Isaiah 34:16, Acts 17:10-12, 1 Thessalonians 5:21, 1 John 4:1-2, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 7:15-20)

Learn that the two most important commandments are to love Almighty God with all your heart, and to love your fellow man as yourself.  Learn how to treat all people with kindness.
(Mark 12:29-31, Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 4:32, Colossians 3:12-14, 1 Thessalonians 3:12)

Know that Satan, the devil, is the god of this present world. Learn how and why to not be overcome by his evil influence.
(2 Corinthians 4:4, Luke 4:3-6, 1 Peter 5:8-9)

Understand why Almighty God has a controversy with the nations, and what will happen to them and those who are a part of them.
(Jeremiah 25:31, Psalm 37:9, Isaiah 34:1-3, Isaiah 40:15, Revelation 19:11-21)

Learn about God's new kingdom and have the sincere a heart with the desire to enter into that perfect, everlasting government.(Matthew 6:33, Micah 4:1-5, Isaiah 2:2-4, Psalm 37:11)

Be willing to change/repent and renew your mind as you learn more of what the Bible teaches. Have a humble and teachable attitude.
(Romans 12:2-3, Ephesians 4:22-24, Matthew 18:4)

As an understanding adult, become a baptized follower of Almighty God and His Son, recognizing who they are, and being baptized in the name of the Father Jehovah, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (which is the power of God).
(Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:37-42, Acts 8:35-38)
