The Things Concerning the Kingdom of God (R.Roberts)

 

It is clearly revealed in the Bible, that Jesus Christ will set up the Kingdom of God upon the earth (Daniel 2:44), and that it will last forever (Luke 1:32-33). Its administration will be in the hands of the Lord Jesus himself (Revelation 11:15), and his resurrected followers then granted immortality (Revelation 5:9-10; 20:4). Its government will be absolute and divine, ruling to the glory of God and the wellbeing of the people (Luke 2:14; Revelation 2:27). A glorified Jerusalem will be its metropolis (Isaiah 24:23), and from that centre divine laws and decrees will issue forth for the guidance and obedience of mankind (Isaiah 2:2-4; Zechariah 14:16). All nations will be brought into subjection to the King (Psalm 72:11, 2:8-12; Isaiah 60:12), including Israel then completely restored, disciplined and purified (Zechariah 12:10; Amos 9:11; Romans 11:25-28). The establishment of God's righteous rule in the earth will result in one King, one empire and one religion replacing the antagonism of today. It shall ensure world peace and prosperity: "glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men" (Luke 2:14). Christ taught his disciples to pray for the setting up of that kingdom in these words:

"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven." Its extent, position and scope is summarised by the words of Daniel the prophet thus: "The kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him." (Daniel 7:27).
