Core truths from Colombia: Pastor Pardo teaches us about the kingdom

Share This Post

“For years, I understood the kingdom of God as one of the topics of the Bible. But as time went by, I understood how wrong I was,” says Pastor Hector Pardo, who has been in Christian ministry for more than 50 years.

At the 2013 DNA Global Forum, Pastor Pardo spoke mightily about his understanding of God’s kingdom as the subject of the whole Bible. Click here to read the transcript and here to watch the video.

“Often when I talk with other pastors, I say, ‘Jesus never spoke about salvation or the gospel of salvation.’ I encourage them to show me one text in the Bible where Jesus spoke about the gospel of salvation. Of course, they can’t. So I ask, ‘What was the gospel that Jesus preached?’ Eventually, they realize the answer: ‘Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom of God.'”

His powerful message plainly reflects two of the DNA’s Seven Core Truths:

  1. Jesus is King. There is one God, eternally existent in three Persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Luke 3:21-22).  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Dan. 7:13-14; Eph. 1:20-22; Phil. 2:9-11; Rev. 19:16).  We proclaim with the prophet Isaiah:  “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end” (Isaiah 9:7).
  2. His primary agenda is to advance the kingdom of God. Christ’s purpose is to establish and advance His Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven” (Gen. 12:1-3; Matt. 6:9-10; Matt. 6:33; Matt. 9:35; Luke 4:43; Gal. 3:8).  This Kingdom comes as a worldwide reality and exists wherever the Lordship of Jesus is acknowledged in repentance, faith, and obedience to His revealed will (Isaiah 9:6-7).  The Kingdom is a present reality.  It offers present hope for substantial healing and restoration, though its fullness is yet to come (Matt. 13:33; Luke 11:20; Luke 16:16; Luke 22:15-26; Rev. 11:15; Rev. 21:1-2, 23-26).

Christianity vs. Science

Is Christianity opposed to science, as we often hear from teachers, professors, and the scientific elite? Or are certain core biblical principles actually at the foundation of science? At its essence, science is a search for truth by means of a careful analysis of the physical universe, or what the Bible calls “the visible world.” The scientific method emerged and flourished within the soil of a Western culture deeply shaped by the Bible, and that was no accident.
