What does it mean "The Kingdom of Heaven"?

Jesus has come for announcing "The Kingdom of Heaven"

Can you explain what he meant? Is it equal to announce the Gospel?

Update:

Maybe I should be more clear, what I wanted to say was, what's in your opinion the meaning of "the Kingdom of Heaven". What is it like?

    It is God's government with Jesus Christ as King. Because it rules from the heavens it is called "Kingdom of the Heavens".

    At one time, God had a Kingdom on earth, ruled by the Davidic kings. But in 607 BCE it was destroyed by Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and the line was Interupted until, as Genesis 49:10 said: : “The scepter will not turn aside from Judah, neither the commander’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to him the obedience of the peoples will belong.” Concerning the ancient Jewish view of Genesis 49:10, a Commentary edited by F. C. Cook (p. 233) notes: “All Jewish antiquity referred the prophecy to Messiah. Thus the Targum of Onkelos has ‘until the Messiah come, whose is the kingdom;’ the Jerusalem Targum, ‘until the time that the king Messiah shall come, whose is the kingdom.’ . . . So the Babylonian Talmud (‘Sanhedrim,’ cap. II. fol. 982), ‘What is Messiah’s name? His name is Shiloh, for it is written, Until Shiloh come.’”

    Jesus was the rightful heir of Kind David, and, he rules from the heavens. This kingdom is different from other kingdoms since the King Jesus is immortal and has no successors. What the kinddom will do for mankind far surpasses that which has been accoplished by any other. (Psalms 37:38; Revelation 21:3,4; Job 33:25; Isaiah 33:24; Acts 24:15; John 25: 28,29; Psalms 67:6,7)

    It is the Gospel of the Good News - and it is within reach IF you know how to do it (See II Corin 12:1-4). The Kingdom of God is something that can be experienced and can be done all by yourself. You go about seeking it by learning how to access and then access it. It can be found through diligent practice and doing it. Why it is to be sought is several reasons: 1. Heaven/Kingdoms is something that can only make sense to you IF you experience it yourself. 2. When you've experienced it, there's nothing to compare. 3. It is easier to stay in compliance with Holy Law by knowing what it is not what it is not. The attraction of good things comes from the Knowledge and Obedience to Holy Law NEVER 'belief' and 'faith'. In fact, 'belief' and 'faith' are the VERY things keeping people away from Holy and Righteous TRUTH! The instructions on How to do it are in The Anointed, The Elect, and The Damned!

    The Kingdom of Heaven exists anywhere and any time the Holy Spirit takes up residence in a human soul, and anywhere or any time a human soul is invited to dwell with God.

    The arrival of the Kingdom of Heaven, courtesy of the only begotten Son of God, is the Good News of the Gospel, and the result of his total self giving for our salvation.
