About the Kingdom of God

In Christendom there are about as many messages as there are preachers. Yet Jesus only had one message: The Kingdom of God. Jesus never taught healing, He healed to verify and demonstrate the message of the Kingdom of God. He did not preach prosperity, he said that you would prosper if you gave up everything for the Gospel. Which gospel? The Gospel of The Kingdom of God. He specifically said that if you gave up land, houses, etc. "for my sake and the gospel" then you would have a hundredfold more in this lifetime. Healing, prosperity, etc., are all benefits of the Kingdom but they are not the Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not meat, nor drink, but righteous, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost (Rom. 14:17).
