I have been asked, on multiple occasions, to provide an audiobook version of Ten Parts in the King. The request, often coming from truck drivers and commuters, is a good one, however, the cost of professional recording has been prohibitive. Why I never thought about it, I don’t know, but one persistent requester recommended using a podcast and simply reading the book with a few comments.
Well, here it is! Frankly, I’ve never been interested in making money from this project, though book sales have generated enough to offset the books I give away. If you enjoy the podcast, drop a tip in the wallet, and more importantly, SHARE!!
Have you ever wondered what the “Gospel of the Kingdom” is?
A couple of days ago, the phrase “the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the earth” (Matt. 24:14) was running around in my head. As I pondered it, I was wondering about the relationship of Ten Parts In The King and this Kingdom process of reaching the ends of the earth.
You see, the major topic of the book is what the Gospel of the Kingdom is and how it is being advanced by the King! Further, we explain the purpose of the existence Jews and Christians and their relative relationship.
So, imagine my surprise when, less than 24 hours after I began pondering the importance of our book and the “Gospel of the Kingdom,” I received an email notification for Ephraim Frank’s most recent blog post that in a few short paragraphs spells out the outline of our book!! This is a MUST READ blog post! It just may be the best three minutes of your week!
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
So, when will the “end” come? ? ? ? This is the billion dollars (euros, yen, shekels, yuan etc.) question which has aroused countless speculations throughout the generations, and especially in ours.*
The conditional prerequisite for the “end” to come is that “this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a witness to all the nations”. What Yeshua meant by “this Gospel of the Kingdom” and His definitions of it is an extensive topic which we will not cover here. However, in Acts 1:3 we are told that after His resurrection the Messiah spent His forty days on earth “speaking (to His disciples) of the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim”. It is quite significant, therefore, that that just before He was taken up these ones asked Him: “Master, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
