Kingdom Of Heaven / Kingdom Of God

As we focus on Matthew's exhaustive record of Jesus' Sermon On The Mount, we learn that the "Kingdom of Heaven" is different from the "Kingdom of God". All throughout the book of Matthew, it seems that the "Kingdom Of Heaven" is tied directly to the future rule of Jesus Christ over the Earth. Knowing this really helps us understand what Jesus meant when he said things like, "the meek shall inherit the earth." Who are the meek and what is the inheritance? And WHEN will the meek inherit the Earth? And how? Jesus said that "their righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees" and they must "be perfect just as their Father in Heaven is perfect." How could any of us possibly fulfill those requirements? Fortunately for all of us, Jesus also began this lecture by personally claiming responsibility for fulfilling the Law on our behalf. "I did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law till all be fulfilled."
