The Kingdom of Heaven

Kingdom Of HeavenThe Bible is replete with historical (or past) events and with prophetic (or future) events, which comprise in the window of TIME God’s perspective of things he wishes to convey by revelation to man.

Through this revelation (The Bible) we find that the BOOK deals more with the subject of a particular kingdom than of any other kingdom.

 We need to see, in the here, and the now, the coming of this kingdom through the eyes of faith. We need to hear with our spiritual ears. We need to pursue with all our heart what is important to the LORD our God. “And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.” [Ezekiel 40:4]

It therefore, behooves us to find out about this kingdom.

This kingdom is the KINGDOM of HEAVEN.

This literal physical earthly kingdom is of most interest to God. This will be a literal, physical, JEWISH KINGDOM on this earth.

The references in the Bible that point to the Kingdom of Heaven, which is a future, millennial, kingdom, number over five hundred instances.(What God emphasizes ... is what we should emphasize.)

This future … PHYSICAL and LITERAL KINGDOM will 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.

Daniel beheld “the Ancient of days” WHO is Jesus Christ. “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.” [Daniel 7:9]

This is the way we see him in the book of Revelation. Do not believe me. Check it out for yourselves! [See Revelation 1:13-16] “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.” [Daniel 7:10]

“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” [Daniel 7:13-14] [Note the kingdom that is given to him.]

In the book of Micah we see the prophecy again of the kingdom in “the last days”.

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”

Jesus Christ will rule all the nations of the world during the Millennium from his throne in Jerusalem. The Kingdom of Heaven will have a perfect government. It will be a theocracy ... the rule of Jesus Christ over the nations of this earth. “And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” [Micah 4:1-7] The kings of this earth will not willingly allow this to happen. [See Psalm 2:2, 9]
