“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven will enter in. Bible other translations

“will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” The Kingdom of Heaven will be the kingdom that Jesus will set up on the earth after he comes down from heaven and fights the Battle of Armageddon [Rev. 19:11-21. See Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”]. People who get to enter the kingdom live forever, so in this context the phrase means having everlasting life and living in the kingdom, complete with all the kingdom blessings of perfect health, safety, no hunger, etc.
