Luke 16:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 The law and the prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. [People were entering the kingdom then, two thousand years ago; for to enter the kingdom is an inward, personal experience; and it does not come with outward signs to be observed. Matthew reports the same: "From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven is forcibly entered, and forceful men lay hold of it." Mat 11:12. ]
