HAVE YOU HEARD?
“After John had been put in prison, Jesus went to Galilee and told people the Good News of God. He said, “The time has come, and the kingdom of God is near. Change the way you think and act, and believe the Good News.”
Until the time when Saul was appointed king, Israel had no king other than the LORD God. Israel was a theocracy that is “God-ruled.” The people were lead by priests, prophets, and judges. But the time came when they demanded that the prophet Samuel appoint a king so that they could be like other nations. (1 Samuel 8:4-21)
1 Samuel 8:7-8
“The LORD told Samuel, “Listen to everything the people are saying to you. They haven’t rejected you; they’ve rejected me. They’re doing just what they’ve done since I took them out of Egypt–leaving me and serving other gods.”
The message that Jesus preached was the same that John preached. Indeed it was the same that the prophet has proclaimed, “Abandon your evil ways and return to God for His kingdom is near.” It is the same message that godly people still preach. Have you taken it to heart?
