The Manifold Wisdom Of God
Christ's New Covenant Kingdom of God
The Believers' Inheritance
What is the true Kingdom of God and how relevant is it today? Genuine born-again Believers know that the Kingdom of God has to be the greatest of kingdoms. But how much is known about it? How is it to be understood? Is it for the present age, or the future? Or is it something to be wished for by saying "Your Kingdom come" every day?
However, it was of such importance to Jesus that He preached and spoke a lot about it. You may or may not remember, but He was still teaching His Disciples about it only days before He left for heaven. He led them through the final sessions of their three-year Kingdom orientation. And it's where Luke, inspired by the Holy Spirit, begins his historic work, called the Acts of the Apostles:
"The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God," Acts 1'1-3.
At the start of His public preaching Jesus declared it to all the people of Israel, loudly and clearly: “The time is fulfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the good news” (Mark 1'15).
As far as the Lord was concerned it was the message.
