Reino dos Céus
I tell you truly there has not arisen among those born of women a greater than John the Baptist. But any inferior in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has been suffering violence and violent men have been seizing it.
The Lord will rescue me from every wicked attack and will keep me safe for his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for the ages of the ages! Amen.
"Not every one who says to me, 'Master, Master,' will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
So then, since we are receiving an unshaken kingdom, let us have grace by which we may worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.
For our God is a consuming fire.
Listen, my beloved brethren, did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to those who love him?
I tell you many will come from the east and from the west and will recline at table with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
Whoever breaks one of these commandments, the least of them, and teaches men to do so, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, and whoever does them and teaches them, he will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
For I say to you that, unless your righteousness far exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 Another illustration he put before them. He said, "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.
25 But while people were sleeping his enemy came and sowed weeds through the wheat, and went away.
26 When the blades shot up and formed grain, the weeds also appeared.
27 Then the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where do the weeds come from?'
28 He replied, 'An enemy did this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us to go and gather them up?'
29 He said, 'No, for in gathering up the weeds you might pull up the wheat along with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At the time of harvest I will say to the harvesters, Gather up first the weeds and tie them into bundles for burning, but bring the wheat into my granary.' "
Another illustration he put before them. He said, "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field.
It is the least of all the seeds, but when it grows up it is greater than the garden herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and live in its branches."
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
47 "Again the kingdom of heaven is like a net cast into the lake that gathered up every sort.
48 But when it was filled they drew it to the beach and sat down and gathered the good into pails, but threw the worthless away.
49 So will it be at the end of the world. The angels will come forth and will separate the wicked from among the righteous
50 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Another illustration he spoke to them. "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour until it was all leavened."
23 Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you truly, a rich man will with difficulty enter the kingdom of heaven.
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven."
25 When the disciples heard this, they were amazed and said, "Who then can be saved?"
26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
IN those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wild part of Judaea
and saying, "Repent; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Therefore endeavor more earnestly, brethren, to make sure that you have been called and chosen. For while doing these things you will never stumble.
For so entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you.
From that time Jesus began to proclaim and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man finds and hides again, and for joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
45 "Again the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls.
46 Having found one very precious pearl he went away and sold everything that he had and bought it.
1 AT that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
2 He called to him a little child and stood him in the midst of them
3 and said, "I tell you truly, unless you turn and become like the little children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4 He who humbles himself like this little child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Pray in this way: 'Our Father in heaven, Thy name be kept holy;
Thy kingdom come; Thy will prevail; As in heaven, so on earth.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Never fear, little flock! For it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit! For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 "Blessed are they that mourn! For they will be comforted.
5 "Blessed are the gentle! For they will inherit the land.
6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness! For they will have abundance.
7 "Blessed are the compassionate! For they will receive compassion.
8 "Blessed are the pure in heart! For they will see God.
9 "Blessed are the peacemakers! For they will be called sons of God.
10 "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for righteousness! For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and say every evil thing against you falsely for my sake!
12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for your reward is great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
As you go proclaim, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
For you know well that no unchaste or impure person, no greedy person \'97 who is an idolater \'97 has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
36 Then leaving the crowds he came into the house, and his disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the illustration of the weeds of the field."
37 He replied, "He who sows the good seeds is the Son of Man.
38 The field is the world. The good seeds are the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the Evil One.
39 The enemy that sowed them is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the world. The reapers are angels.
40 As the weeds are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the world.
41 The Son of Man will send his angels and they will gather up from his kingdom all stumbling-blocks and those who practice lawlessness,
42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then will the righteous shine out like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
