Question Number 60

 Question: What is the nature of the KINGDOM of the HEAVEN?


Answer:  This KINGDOM is a future … PHYSICAL and LITERAL KINGDOM to be established at the end of the Times of the Gentiles exactly as defined in the book of Daniel. It will be also a POLITICAL KINGDOM! Israel’s KING will govern the nations of this earth! This KING is the SON of GOD … Jesus Christ.

 

Indeed my friends, very near in the future there is coming to this earth a dispensation called: “the regeneration”, a “time of reformation”, a millennial kingdom, which the Lord will have put his laws into the minds of the Jews.

For the last six thousand years the whole creation ever since Adam sinned has been groaning and waiting for it. It will be a Sabbath, or a rest for the earth, lasting one thousand years. The Bride of Jesus Christ … The Church … will reign with him. “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” [Revelation 5:10] The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of God will be coexistent during regeneration.

After the thousand years with Jesus Christ, reigning visibly from Jerusalem will come a new heaven and a new earth. The Kingdom of Heaven will have transitioned into eternity. There will be no physical temple in it: “for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it” [Revelation 21:22] “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” [Revelation 21:1-5]

 


So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The Formula

The “spiritual milk” for the 21st Century believer in Jesus Christ is the same spiritual milk that was recommended by the Spirit of God for now almost two thousand years.


This SINCERE MILK is the basic starting food so necessary for every new born-again believer to GROW.

 

[2 Timothy 3:16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
[2 Timothy 3:17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Bible Study Hints

2 Peter 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

Prophecy involves future things … in future events. Prophecy is a foretelling; a prediction; a declaration of something to come. History is the record of the fulfillment prophecy.
Bible “prophecy” came not “by the will of man”. Man’s “will” was not involved at all. Bible prophecy came by the Holy Ghost WHO is GOD. God “moved” certain men to speak certain words that are God’s words in “old time”.

• God’s words that “holy men” “spake” “in old time” are preserved … for all time.

• God’s words are kept.

• God keeps them. Man does not keep them. The scholars do not keep them.

• God preserves them … in spite of the scholars. This is a direct promise of God.
 
This promise is found for all generations of men forevermore to see in Psalms twelve: “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” [Psalm 12:6-7]

 Do you see what I see?

• The words of the Lord are pure words.

• The words of the Lord are purified seven times.

This promise literally extends [in the English language] to all of US [the English-speaking nations on this Earth today].

Now, the seven purifications [or the translations] into the English for the English-speaking nations on this Earth are these:

• The Tyndale’s New Testament … in 1526.

• The Coverdale’s Bible … in 1535

• The Matthews’ Bible … in 1537

• The Great Bible … in 1539

• The Geneva Bible … in 1560

• The Bishops Bible … in 1568

• The King James Bible … in 1611

This seventh book represents a purified BOOK, and is the word of God in the English language.

Therefore, we have this promise from God that God actively maintained the “pure words” of God.

We have therefore, in the Authorized Version of 1611 [A.V. 1611] Bible … the “settled” words of God:

“For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”
[Psalm 119:89]

The A.V. 1611 King James Bible, or any of its editions [1613, 1644, 1676, 1680, 1701, 1769], is the settled forever.
Amen!
