     Nearly 2000 years ago, the Good News of the Kingdom began to be preached throughout the Mediterranean by a carpenter’s son, Jesus of Nazareth. His teachings served to uplift a downtrodden people, and all who listened to his message of hope found refreshment for their souls.


       This humble carpenter’s son was eventually revealed as the Son of God incarnate as a son of man who showed mankind the way to reconcile with God and find their way to Him. At first, twelve men adopted his message, but in time, thousands became his disciples who, in turn, carried the message to all whom they met. From these small beginnings, a worldwide movement began. Christianity was born.


       However, within 400 years, Christianity had lost its way and reverted back to the old ways of priests and clergy/laity distinctions. Ecclesiastical authority and religious superiority brought divisions and sects, and pitted Christian against Christian. The individual disciple of Christ lost his spiritual autonomy and was relegated to the position of an audience member in servitude to a church rather than a dynamic free son of God and bearer of the Good News. As a result, the Good News of the Kingdom as Jesus conceived it has to a large extent been submerged under so much dogma. Christianity today languishes for lack of a new vision of the Master’s life on earth – a new and fuller revelation of the religion that he practiced.


       We therefore rejoice that the submergence of the true Good News is only temporary. It has been in a larval stage waiting for a more spiritual age where the Master’s teachings can enjoy a fuller opportunity for development. That age is upon us, that time is now! The hour is striking for a rediscovery of the actual, authentic, plain and open teachings of Jesus.


        Modern man will refuse to accept a religion which is inconsistent with known facts and out of harmony with his highest conceptions of truth, beauty, and goodness. He will not acquiesce to a religion based on superstitious bondage and religious fear. What is needed is a new revelation of Jesus’ life illuminated with a new understanding of his Good News of eternal salvation.


       That is the purpose of this series – to reintroduce Jesus to mankind. Christianity has indeed done a great service for this world, but what is now most needed is Jesus. The world needs to see Jesus living again on earth in the experience of spirit-born men and women who effectively reveal the Master to all men. And we need new leaders, spiritual men and women who will dare to depend solely on Jesus and his incomparable teachings.


      The time has come for a revealing of this Son of Man/Son of God and an understanding of his divine relationship to every man, woman and child who walks, or has ever walked, on the face of our humble planet. Unless the world knows who Jesus really is, worldwide harmony will continue to be the illusive dream of a hopeful minority instead of the tangible reality of a God knowing human race.


       So with the time remaining, we will do our utmost to glorify the Father and His Christ by promoting and teaching the true Good News of the Kingdom. These articles will take you on a journey through the fundamental aspects of the Good News of the Kingdom as taught by Jesus, with the hope that as you emerge at the end, your eyes will have been opened and you, too, will join in proclaiming his actual, authentic, plain and open teachings.


         With the support of individual Christians worldwide, we believe the true Good News of the Kingdom can effect positive changes in our modern world. And when this Good News is preached in all the inhabited earth, the end of wickedness, sorrow, distress, and anguish will come. (Matthew 24:14)
