      For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you” (NKJV). The context of Jesus’ statement is a question put to Him by His Pharisee detractors who had asked when the kingdom of God would come (verse 20). Jesus’ answer was that the kingdom of God was not coming in the manner the Pharisees were expecting. At the beginning of his earthly ministry, Jesus announces that “the kingdom of heaven has come near” (Matthew ). When we read “kingdom of heaven,” we may think of harps, clouds, and angel choirs, but Jesus is clear that the kingdom of heaven refers to God’s rule on earth.

    The Kingdom of God (and its related form the Kingdom of Heaven in the Gospel of Matthew) is one of the key elements of the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament. Drawing on Old Testament teachings, the Christian characterization of the relationship between God and humanity inherently involves the notion of the Kingship of God. The Old Testament refers to "God the Judge of all" and the notion. Let’s share together in a word of prayer as we come to our study tonight. Father, it’s with great desire in my heart that I approach Your Word, that we might clearly understand the power and the urg.

The near approach of Christ's kingdom, clearly proved by Scripture: with a certain account of the signs of the present times relating thereto. Scopri The Near Approach of Christ's Kingdom, Clearly Proved by Scripture with a Certain Account of the Signs of the Present Times Relating Thereto () di Marsin, M: spedizione gratuita per i clienti Prime e per ordini a partire da 29€ spediti da : Copertina flessibile.

The first book of the New Testament, the Gospel According to Matthew, begins by saying that Jesus Christ is "the son of David, The near approach of Christs kingdom son of Abraham" (Matthew ) He is the direct descendent of two foundational figures of the Old Testament, with whom God made specific covenants: Abraham, to whom God promised land, descendents, and blessings to the whole world; and David, to whom God.

Not only did Jesus say that the kingdom was near. He also proved it by doing miracles that could bring a kingdom both spiritual and material as predicted: “The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor” (Matt.

; cf. Isa. But remember that Jesus’ constant message then—both before the sermon and after it ( and )—was that the kingdom had drawn near.

Even in the Sermon, He several times referred to the kingdom as clearly future (; ; ). In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.

3. Jesus purposes the kingdom. Jesus reveals that his purpose is to proclaim the kingdom. Jesus described his mission saying that he “must preach the good news of the kingdom of God”. Jesus declares the kingdom. Through his words, Jesus explains the kingdom and invites people to enter into it.

The word 'my' there shows possession. This is the church that belongs to Christ. As a matter of fact, the title 'Church of Christ' shouldn't really be a title, but instead, a description: it is the church of Christ, the church that belongs to Christ, the one in which he is the head and we are to fulfill in our roles in the body.

Jesus' kingdom fulfills all the kingdom promises God made to the people of Israel. He and his apostles applied the language of Israel— including the imagery of temple, vine, shepherd, light of the nations, and so forth—to himself first and then to all those who are found in him. The Kingdom or Church of Christ.

Prophecies Concerning It. Isaiah and Micah predicted that the law should go forth out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Isaiah ; Micah ); Jeremiah predicted that the Lord would establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, that it should not be like unto the covenant that He made with their fathers when he.

The Old Testament scriptures clearly teach that the Messianic Kingdom cannot be set up until Israel as a nation REPENTS. In Matt. we read "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the 'Gospel of The Kingdom'.". In Mark 4, before explaining to his disciples the parable of the sower, Jesus tells them: [Mar NIV] (11) He told them, "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you.

But to those on the outside everything is said in parables. What is this "secret" of the kingdom of God that Jesus has given to his disciples by this point in time. What is God’s Kingdom, and who is its King. 4 Jehovah set up a heavenly government and chose Jesus to be its King.

The Bible calls this government God’s Kingdom. Jesus is “the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords.” (1 Timothy ) Jesus is able to do more good than any human ruler ever could, and he is more powerful than all human rulers put together.

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ John Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would. Jesus was not a helpless victim, who was overcome by His adversaries. Jesus was not only the sinless Son of God, He was the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe (see John 1).

He was and is the Sovereign God, who does what He has purposed and promised to do. Every event which John describes is something which God purposed to accomplish.

Isaiah We will have the opportunity to build a totally new world of peace, happiness, and prosperity, and we will accomplish this by teaching and enforcing obedience to God's laws throughout the whole will be our main responsibility during the thousand-year reign of Christ.

The Kingdom is not given to angels; it is given to Christ who alone is seated at the right hand of God the Father in the position of cosmic authority.

In every way Christ has supremacy over the angels and is not to be confused as being one of them. Then the author of Hebrews details the supremacy of Christ. Here are reasons from the scriptures why Christ’s kingdom is present, spiritual and non-political.

The Kingdom of God Is At Hand. Christ announced that his kingdom had drawn near. Citing Daniel, he preached the kingdom of God saying, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.

“Your Deliverance Is Getting Near”. The book of Revelation answers by describing the destruction of “Babylon the Great.” they expect that Jesus will visibly return to rule the earth.

However, the Bible clearly shows that “the sign of the Son of man” will appear in heaven and that Jesus will come “on the clouds of heaven.”. John the Baptist, in Matt. 3, came preaching that the "kingdom of heaven is at hand," or near.

Jesus told the chosen twelve in Matt. to go preach that the "kingdom of heaven is at hand." In Matt. church and kingdom are mentioned interchangeably by Jesus in referring to the same people. The inspired "prayer of the saints" in Revelation says very clearly that Christ has made the true saints "kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth"—NOT up in heaven!

Revelation describes the reward of God's true saints, to join Christ's ruling Kingdom in the first resurrection: "Blessed and holy is he who has.The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)!As noted in the preceding article, Jesus centered his life on “preaching and declaring the good news of the Kingdom.” He exerted himself, walking hundreds of miles throughout the land of Israel in order to teach people about God’s KingdomJesus’ ministry was recorded in the four Gospels, which contain over references to the Kingdom.
