The Jews had a preconceived notion of the kingdom of heaven, thinking that the kingdom of God was for the worldly good of their nation. Others cannot share it.
This vague and erroneous idea brought a lot of shame to their character. Among the priests, there were various faults such as religious extravagance, aristocracy, arrogance, oppression of the poor and widows, and deprivation of the birthright of women. Their minds were hardened.
They could not actually enter the kingdom of heaven on their own and prevented others from entering. They acted outwardly but did not understand what his real purpose was.
Thus many obstacles and obstacles appeared in their minds on the way to the coming of God. Arrogance, aristocratic selfishness created huge obstacles in the way of God’s coming as mountains and sub-mountains.

That cry of the Baptist is being heard everywhere in the world today. What a terrible world today! I want to change the way the world is changing, but what can be done?
There is no peace anywhere in the world today, only unrest and corruption in personal life, social life and state life. If people’s attitudes change today, the world will be destroyed. The only hope is the kingdom of heaven established by Jesus Christ.
The time has come to enter this kingdom not only as a nominee, but as a real tenant.

These will be available to all in the kingdom of heaven by Jesus Christ. Peace will come to the world. So it is time to change your mind and enter the kingdom of heaven. Let us all listen to the words of the Baptist.
