What must we do to enter the "Kingdom ? "
John the Baptist announces the arrival of the King, not with fanfare and with trumpets as

But John The Baptist announces the arrival of the King in the wilderness and the people come to
him..........as so too the King calls out to those who will come to the banquet
It is for them to respond, for us to hear and For God to call..............
"Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand." Matthew 3:2 Mark 1:15 Luke 10:9-11
Again we see past , present and future as God calls those by His spirit and by His voice into
the Kingdom, as one calling out , into the wilderness of a heart
You know the birth of Jesus is not just about a manger and a baby, it can be a spiritual birth
in the life of a person, thus the Kingdom of God is at hand or is near
When the disciples went out to preach they proclaimed ...the Kingdom of God is near
They or these were active , visible signs of the Kingdom
New King James says
Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you
King James Version
the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe
in the good news." Mark 1:15
Repent...in other words turn around , walk from your old ways and come ...follow me
