The Gospel of the Kingdom of God

The word Gospel is from a Greek word which means “good news” or “glad tidings”. The message of the the name of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God are the fundamental elements of the Bible gospel. The Bible teaches that God is intimately engaged in the affairs upon the earth and positively involved in the daily lives of people who diligently seek to know him. His revealed purpose with creating the earth and people upon it is to eventually populate it with his children, who will be changed from corruption and death to in-corruption and immortality. The Bible describes that time as, “the kingdom of God” when “all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord”.

This is the wonderful outcome promised by the God of the Bible, which announces an invitation for people to believe its message and recieve the grace of God which is offered in the Gospel, to be "adopted" into God's family and live forever in His kingdom with Jesus Christ and all other believers.

The Gospel announces a coming time of blessing for all nations, "The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Good News beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you all the nations will be blessed.” (Galatians 3:8).
Part of the Gospel concerns the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth, "as truely as I live,  all the earth shall be filled with Yahweh’s glory" (Numbers 14:21).
Christ will be it’s King (Luke 1:32-33), reigning from Jerusalem (Jer.3:17).
The scope of his reign will be worldwide (Zech.14:9). He will be assisted by his resurrected and immortalised followers who shall reign with him “on the earth” (Rev.5:9-10).
The establishment of the Kingdom of God will include current political and social conditions being drastically altered to provide for the following:


- The abolition of war and establishment of worldwide peace (Isa.2:2-4)
- The removal of fear and insecurity from civil life (Micah 4:4)
- The overthrow of all tyrants and oppressors (Psa.72:4)
- The establishment of a single global Empire on earth (Rev.11:15)
- The equitable distribution of the world’s produce (Isa.23:18)
- The exercise of justice and goodwill among men (Luke 2:14)
- The establishment of one universal religion in the earth (Zeph.3:8-9)
- A new educational system purity and truthfulness based upon Divine principles  (Isa.33:6)
- The uplifting of humanity – mentally, morally, and socially (Isa.11)
- The restraining of sin and human pride (Isa.30:18-21)
- The elevation of God’s way as supreme (Isa.60)
- Christ’s Reign of a Thousand Years on Earth.

Original Christian Belief

The historian Edward Gibbon, in the 15th chapter of his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, clearly outlines the original beliefs of the early Christians, and how that belief was changed over the course of time. He wrote: “The ancient and popular doctrine of the Millennium was intimately connected with the second coming of Christ … a joyful Sabbath of a thousand years; when Christ, with the triumphant band of the saints and the elect who had escaped death, or who had revived, would reign upon earth…”
Justin Martyr, an early Christian, wrote in 150AD: “For if you have conversed with some that are indeed called Christians, and do not maintain these opinions, but even dare to blaspheme the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and say that there is no resurrection of the dead, but that the souls, as soon as they leave the body, are received up into heaven, take care that you do not look upon these. But I, and all those Christians that are really orthodox in every respect, do know that there will be a resurrection of the body and a thousand years in Jerusalem, when it is built again, and adorned, and enlarged, as Ezekiel, and Isaiah, and the rest of the prophets declare.” – Dialogue With Trypho, The Jew, section lxxx.
Today there is confusion about the Kingdom of God -why ? Edward Gibbon answers: “The doctrine of Christ’s reign upon earth was first treated as a profound allegory, was considered by degrees as a doubtful and useless opinion, and was at length rejected as the absurd invention of heresy and fanaticism.” This turning away from original belief fulfilled the predictions of the New Testament.
The apostle Paul warned Timothy: “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Tim.3:3).

Bible Prophecy

The Bible abounds with references to the promise of God to complete His work with the world by creating HIs kingdom on it. Ultimately all the inhabitants of the earth will be perfected by the work of Jesus Christ and the spirit of God to become the immortal children of God, fulfilling the promise made by God,  "as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with Yahweh’s glory" Numbers 14:21
