|The kingdom of God is one of the great themes of the Bible. From
beginning to end it speaks of the glory of God and the greatness
of his Kingdom. The Old Testament is full of prophecies about the
time when the Lord will establish his Kingdom. One example is
The earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord, as the
waters cover the sea.
This is a tremendous prophecy. The Lord is saying that the time
will come when his glory will be present in every part of the
earth. There will be no place in the world, where his name is not
honoured and glorified. He will be victorious through the entire
earth. All things will be brought into submission to him as the
kingdom of God is extended throughout the earth.
people should be passionate about the Kingdom of God. We
sing worship songs about the Kingdom of God, but often do not
understand what we are singing. A
recovery of the vision of the Kingdom of God is vital for the
future of the Church.
The following chapters describe the Kingdom of God in detail
(they need to be read in order - click on the headings).
Who is in charge of the world. This is the issue
of authority. Jesus talked about authority all the
time. He claimed to have all authority in heaven and on
earth. His healing miracles were motivated by compassion,
but they were also a demonstration of his authority.
Authority is the central issue of our time and the key to the Kingdom of
God (government of God).
The Great Commission
The great commission has two parts. We have
concentrated on the first part of the commission. The
second part of the commission is just as important. It is
time to teach the nations to obey Jesus.
The Kingdom of God is not just another name for the
Church. The Kingdom is a much broader and more important
entity than the Church.
We all know that individuals are born again into the
Kingdom of God. However, this just one way that the
Kingdom of God expands. Read about the other ways of
expanding the Kingdom.
The Church is just one sphere of activity where Christians
can exercise authority. The family is also important
sphere. There are other important spheres
of authority that should concern us.
The values that prevail in the Kingdom are the opposite of
those that dominate the world. The government of God will
turn many things upside down.
The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Darkness manifest
themselves in each sphere of authority. Christians should
be able to identify the difference.
Jesus provided a strategy for developing the Kingdom of God
on earth. The strategies of man will not be successful if
they are not aligned to the God's plan.
God has given us all the tools that we need to establish the Kingdom.
We do not need Jesus to come back to do it for us. We just
have to start using the tools we have.
- God's Timetable for the
God is working out his purposes on the earth.
Some people think that he is slow or that he is not in
control. This is not true. He is patient and will
establish his Kingdom right on time. We just need to
understand his timetable better.
God has promised Victory for his Kingdom. This
promise is waiting to be claimed. We should be taking hold
of these promises of victory.
What will the world be like when the Kingdom of God has fully
come? The Bible teaches the answers to this
question. the biblical vision of the Kingdom of God is a
Many who read the description of the Kingdom in the
previous chapter will find it that to believe that such a
glorious existence is possible on earth. However, the
Bible speaks with absolute certainty of the coming of the
Kingdom of God From beginning to end it is packed
full of promises that the Kingdom will be established.
