In Matthew 19:16-26, after meeting the young man, Jesus mentioned to His disciples that it is hard for the rich to enter the kingdom of God. Is it still the same today as it was then? Or has it been made possible and easier now by simply believing in Jesus? Considering this passage in its context will reveal so much more than what we typically unde…
 
In Matthew 19:13-15, parents queued for Jesus to bless their children. The disciples rebuked them for disturbing Jesus. In turn, Jesus rebuked the disciples for missing the point. Again. But what exactly is the point? More than just lining up for a prayer of blessing, the King uses the little children to explain and show the right Q to get to Kingd…
 
In Matthew 19:1-12, the Pharisees came with intentions to test and trap Jesus. They asked wrong questions about divorce but Jesus provided right answers about marriage. This teaching shows our questions can reveal our focus but God's answers will always reveal His heart. Knowing the difference will enable us to live out the spirit of the law, and n…
 
As believers and followers of Jesus, we know that we are to forgive. However, many still struggle with this instruction. Can we ignore it altogether? After all, aren't we already forgiven and saved? Even worse, why should we keep forgiving if the other party is unrepentant? Unfair? Henson considers these concerns in this session on Matthew 18:21-35…
 
Matthew 18:20 is well known and often quoted in opening prayers – "where two or three are gathered together in My name". Interestingly, what is not as known are the verses that come before and what the entire passage is about. Still on the theme of relationships, Matthew 18:15-20 addresses discipline in the kingdom community. This teaching will con…
 
Matthew 18:10-14 is a continuation of how we are to relate to one another in the kingdom community. In this teaching, Jesus tells the familiar parable of the lost sheep, reminding and challenging us to always be mindful of who's missing. Henson draws three key points from the parable before sharing implications for the kingdom community.…
 
Is Matthew 17:24-27 merely about supernatural provision of tax money? At first glance, it may appear to be so. However, there is so much more when the background of the half-shekel tax is examined. In this teaching about kingdom freedom and kingdom giving, Henson will touch on tax, tradition, trap ... and tithe.…
 
Matthew 17:14-23 is about discipleship and faith. When push came to shove, when it mattered, how did the disciples fare? Where the rubber meets the road, how do we fare? Note the way the Master trained His disciples. Much to glean for our own discipleship and disciple-making initiatives.By Henson Lim
 
Matthew 16:28 - 7:13 records the Transfiguration of Jesus. Up on the peak, the disciples were given a sneak peek – a glimpse – of the glory of the Christ and His kingdom. More than just a high point, how are we to respond to the revelations and insights the Lord reveals to us from time to time? Henson draws practical application for the spiritual w…
 
Matthew 16:13-20 is often referred to as the high point or climax of the gospel where Peter declares that famous line, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." To this end, the lessons here are also pivotal for those who regard themselves as people of the kingdom of God. Henson shares four alignment check points for followers of the Christ.…
 
Red Alerts are warning signs that the enemy is approaching or that danger is imminent. In Matthew 16:1-4, to the Pharisees and Sadducees, Jesus was the common enemy. However, Jesus warns of more critical signs that they are not seeing and the most important one they must not miss. These red alerts are still and especially relevant in the times we l…
 
Matthew 15:29-39 seems to be just an account of yet another feeding miracle. But, is it? Viewed in proper context, it is so much more than merely how massively the Messiah can multiply. Matthew’s message goes much deeper and broader, clearly declaring that the kingdom of God is for all. Yes, including those on the fringe. And Jesus, the Fringe Guy,…
 
In Matthew 15:21-28, Jesus marvels at the Canaanite woman's great faith! Her great faith was not blind faith but grounded firmly on what she knew about Jesus and His kingdom. In this teaching, Henson examines what she knew, as well as what Jesus knew. This is so that we can learn and know what we need to know that we may also respond rightly with g…
 
After dealing with the scribes and pharisees, Jesus addresses the multitudes and disciples in Matthew 15:10-20. In this teaching, Henson explains how easy it is to go off the wrong track and miss the kingdom track that Jesus desires us to get and stay on. Often, we consider things from the outside in when our King wants to rule and reign over our h…
 
This teaching marks and celebrates five years of KINGDOM101 since the first session in March 2015. In this 102nd session, Henson Lim teaches from Matthew 14:22-36, the account of Jesus walking on water. We all have an "other side" to get to. However, when we face oppositions and challenges along the way, would we give up or keep going forward? The …
 
Immediately after teaching about how the kingdom operates through the kingdom parables, in Matt 13:53-58, Matthew records the rejection of Jesus in his own hometown. From this, we learn that kingdom assignments are prophetic in nature. Not surprising. After all, the Body of Christ is a prophetic kingdom community. Henson utilises this opportunity t…
 
The Parable of the Dragnet in Matt 13:47-50 can be neatly summarised by two points: "all sorts" and "all sorted". After teaching about this parable, Henson presents the main point as presented through all seven parables. But that is not the end. Instead, in the next two verses (Matt 13:51-52), there is an encore, an eighth parable, an extension, an…
 
Through the parables in Matthew 13, Jesus gives us a glimpse, a PReVieW, of the kingdom of God. The next two parables in Matthew 13:44-46 describe the radical responses of those who discovered the treasure and the pearl of great price. Why then does not everyone respond in the same way? Henson dives more deeply to consider the PRice and the Value o…
 
The Parables of the Mustard Seed and Leaven in Matthew 13:31-33 seem to refer to the size of the kingdom of God. But do they? In this teaching, we will see that these parables are about the extent and the effect of the kingdom of God. Henson offers practical points for the believer to apply these principles of smallness and hiddenness for kingdom i…
 
Jesus' second parable in Matthew 13:24-30;36-43, the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares, may contain similar elements as the first parable; but the focus is different. It is about faithful and fruitful sons of the kingdom being scattered in the world for the purposes of the kingdom, holding their own against the enemy's agents, until the time of se…
 
The Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13:1-8;18-23 is very familiar to many and not difficult to understand. That said, therein lies the challenge. And that is exactly the point of the parable and what Jesus was trying to address. Henson presents this popular parable in three parts: SOW MUCH!, SOW WHAT? and SOW HOW? Listen once more with fresh ears a…
 
Matthew 13 is the 3rd of the five major discourses of Jesus in the gospel of Matthew. In this teaching, Henson draws from Matthew 13:10-17 to lay kingdom foundations before getting into the kingdom parables in this chapter. Through the five points of People, Parables, Promise, Problem & Privilege, you will have a broad overview of the Kingdom Opera…
 
In Matthew 12:46-50, Jesus closes his discourse with a focus on the family: the kingdom family, a family of disciples, a family of faith. Henson provides foundational teaching about the family and what it means to belong to God's family of faith and the expectations of sons and daughters, brothers and sisters in Christ.…
 
Matthew 12:43-45 may read like a teaching about deliverance but it is really more than that. Jesus was still addressing the Pharisees and His concern was more for the condition of that entire generation than just the deliverance of a man. The same concern extends to the people of the kingdom today. The same questions apply: What are we occupied wit…
 
After so many miracles and signs, the religious leaders asked Jesus for yet another sign. Surely, it's not easy dealing with people who refuse to listen or get it. We can learn from Jesus through Matthew 12:38-42. Along the way, understand what the sign of the prophet Jonah refers to and how the phrase "three days and three nights" was fulfilled.…
 
What is the blasphemy against the Spirit, the unforgivable sin? Henson teaches from Matthew 12:31-32, staying in context and drawing from other parallel passages, showing that both unbelievers and believers must take heed to this warning by Jesus. This teaching will both challenge and encourage you.By Henson Lim
 
In Matthew 12:22-30, Jesus heals a demon-possessed man and is accused by the Pharisees of doing it by the power of Beelzebul or Satan. From Jesus' rebuttal, we get to learn about Satan as well as the victory we have over him and his demons in the name of Jesus. In this teaching, Henson presents four kingdom principles and provides answers to FAQs l…
 
Matthew 12:15-21 closes Jesus' encounter with the religious leaders. Quoting from Isaiah 42:1-4, this passage describes the nature of the Servant of the Lord. Learning from the example of Jesus, Henson shares seven principles of how we can be rightly positioned for opposition, and how we are to respond that we may continue faithfully on our kingdom…
 
Is it still lawful if lawful becomes awful? Matthew 12:9-14 is a continuation of that which started when Jesus invited all to take His yoke instead of the Pharisees'. From that invitation, followed by a confrontation, comes this demonstration by Jesus as He heals on the Sabbath. In this encounter with the religious leaders, we learn that legalism m…
 
With increasing popularity comes increasing hostility against Jesus. Matthew 12:1-8 records the Pharisees reaction towards Jesus' open invitation for all to learn from Him, taking issue with His disciples' violation of the Sabbath. This teaching explores the principle of the Sabbath to explain how the Pharisees missed the point while doing their be…

Matthew 11:25-30 closes the entire episode surrounding John and Baptist and Jesus. The chapter began with the messenger but rightly ends with the Messiah. Jesus emphasises again the place of divine revelation and the expectation of personal response. When we accept the invitation of Jesus to take up His yoke and to learn from Him, we find rest even…
 
When it comes to understanding the aspects of the kingdom of God, there is so much to learn and grasp. Although Jesus and John appeared to be different in the way they ministered, they were both right and relevant. It wasn't either/so but both/and. From Matthew 11:16-24, Henson shows how we can better embrace these tensions as we navigate the marke…
 
Questioned openly, Jesus affirms the person and ministry of John the Baptist openly. In doing so, He establishes His own Messiahship. And yet, the main point in Matthew 11:7-15 is about the kingdom of God and how it will continue to be opposed. Against this, and in spite of this, everyone is invited to kingdom greatness, to say 'yes' to serving the…
 
Matthew 11:1-6 records John the Baptist's own questions about Jesus as he wrestled with doubt and discouragement from prison. What happens when expectation and experience do not line up? Is doubt ever allowed when moving on kingdom assignments? What can we learn from Jesus' answer to John's question? Henson addresses these questions and more in thi…
 
Jesus closes Matthew 10 on a positive note with the promise of rewards. In this teaching, Henson draws on context to explain the significance of prophets, righteous men and the little ones. With the focus on a kingdom community that receives one another in the face of threats and challenges, Henson shares five principles how that can be applied in …
 
Matthew 10:32-39 contains many contrasts. Jesus employs this literary device to its fullest to make a very clear and strong point. In this teaching, Henson uses the seven contrasts to establish that there is no question that Jesus will have the last word. The question is, does He take first place presently? How we represent Jesus before men today w…
 
Matthew 10:16-25 addresses an aspect of discipleship that we would rather ignore – persecution. And yet, these are the words of Jesus our King and Master, our Shepherd who prepares His sheep to be sent out amongst wolves! Be aware of the groups of people from which disciples may face possible challenge and persecution. Learn how we are to respond a…
 
Matthew 10:7-15 contains instructions to Team Jesus as they move on their kingdom assignments. The priority is to proclaim the good news of the kingdom. On this note, we have a responsibility to represent Jesus and His kingdom rightly and accurately. Kingdom paradigms of power, grace and provision accompany the proclamation of the kingdom message. …
 
Starting a new section, Henson provides an overview of the five discourses in Matthew, and the KINGDO101 expository journey thus far. What does it mean to be on Team Jesus? Matthew 10:1-6 outlines how disciples are to be aligned with Jesus, that we may be authorised by Jesus as we are appointed by Jesus and assigned for Jesus. In this teaching, Hen…
 
Following Jesus' declaration and teaching, His demonstration and training, Matthew 9:35-38 provides the transition to the king's delegation and tasking. Simply, there are works ahead and workers are needed. Sadly, the numbers remain few. The solution? Pray for the Lord of the harvest to send out, to drive out, to push out, to thrust out workers.…
