Which Kingdom Is At The End
You have to take in account, that the Messiah was here, and the prophecy would have been coming to a close. The Kingdom that was promised to Israel was just a few years away. However Israel rejected the Messiah, refused to spread the message of the kingdom, and kill the Messiah. Noe God revealed a hidden mystery.

The gospel of the Lords Kingdom is the news of salvation in and through Christ--first it is salvation from sin in the individual heart and life (the kingdom of God is within you) and secondly it involves the promise of a new earth in which all things are made new. Prophecy reveals the condition of the world when these things take place. Jesus came and offered the Jews salvation from sin. They as a whole refused His gift and instead demanded freedom from the Romans and a land of milk and honey.

He is talking about the Gospel which is that that the Kingdom of God has become active (one idea for "at hand"). It is the Kingdom of God that He preached everywhere He went (Matthew 4:23; Luke 8:1; etc.)
You don't get good Kingdom preaching any more :(.
He meant that before the fall of the Temple (Matthew 24:1-2) the Gospel would be taught to all the nations that were known by them (cf. Scroll of War for the list).

This is a ref. to God's establishing His eternal kingdom, established by His "creating" a new heaven and a new earth where peace will finally be restored!

What Jesus refers to in St. Matthew 24:14
That when the world becomes aware that what
he foretold to the deciples is now upon the
world so shall these things come to past.
I find that the prophecy of Jesus is now
Peace and blessings..

Preaching the gospel. But none will be able to finish throughout all the cities before Jesus comes again. And unless he cut not the time short, then no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the chosen he will cut the time short and return before the time planned.

It means the physical. Flesh and blood will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.

Now God is rich in Mercy, has foreknowledge, and great love for us, revealed through Paul a hidden mystery/ message. That is He would show grace to those who showed faith in his Son. Trusting that Jesus Christ was in fact Israel's Messiah. That he used his own blood to pay our sin debt, and freeing us from the law. WE are no longer held down by our sins so we can freely serve God.
