BIBLE’S MESSAGE UNCOVERED

By the Scripture's Own Writers

Definition

The Kingdom of God is a Sovereign-empowered theocratic gov­ernment under an administration of divinely appointed Kings. Jeho­vah Himself is the great Everlasting King. (1 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 15:3; Jeremiah 10:10) He has taken into association as co-regent His Son Christ Jesus. God has purposed the Kingdom as the capital or ruling part of His universal organization. It is comprised of the King Christ Jesus and 144,000 associate kings taken from among men. It is entirely heavenly, having no earthly part. All becoming members must be resurrected and given spirit bodies. At times the term "kingdom" is applied to the one (in the Scriptures, Christ) who has the rank, quality, attributes and authority of a king. The term also is used to refer to the realm over which the Kingdom government exercises control. This Kingdom began operation in full power with the en­thronement of Christ in the heavens, A.D. 1914.

The Kingdom Is the Greatest Truth Taught in the Bible

Jesus opened His preaching campaign with the announcement of the Kingdom and spoke of the Kingdom over 110 times, in the four Gospels.

Ephesians 1:8-10 "He made known to us the sacred secret of his will. It is according to his good pleas­ure which he purposed in himself for an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things to­gether again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth."

Philippians 2:9-11 "For this very rea­son also God exalted Him to a superior position and kindly gave Him the Name that is above every other name, so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, and every tongue should openly confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father."

1 Corinthians 15:24, 25 "Next, the ac­complished end, when He hands over the Kingdom to His God and Father, when He has destroyed all government and all authority and power. For He must rule as king until God has put all ene­mies under His feet."

Isaiah 9:6, 7 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jeho­vah of hosts will perform this."

Hebrews 12:25-28 "See that you do not refuse Him that speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him that gave divine warning upon earth, much more shall we not if we turn away from Him who speaks from the heavens. At that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, saying: 'Yet once more I will set not only the earth but also the heaven in commotion.' Now the expression 'Yet once more' signifies the removal of the things being shaken as things that have been made, in order that the things not being shaken may remain. Wherefore, seeing that we are to receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us continue to have undeserved kind­ness, through which we may acceptably render God sacred serv­ice with godly fear and awe."

Romans 8:19 "For the eager ex­pectation of the creation is wait­ing for the revealing of the sons of God."

Matthew 24:14 "And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for the purpose of a wit­ness to all the nations, and then the accomplished end will come."

Matthew 6:10, 33 " 'Let Your King­dom come. Let Your will come to pass, as in heaven, also upon earth.'... Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and His right­eousness, and all these other things will be added to you."

Foretold, Foreordained Before Foundation of New World

Genesis 3:15 "And I will put en­mity between you and the wom­an, and between your seed and her seed: he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."

Ephesians 1:4 "Just as He chose us in union with Him before the world's foundation, that we should be holy and without blemish before Him in love."

Luke 22:29 "And I make a covenant with you, just as My Father has made a covenant with Me, for a kingdom."

Romans 9:23, 24 "In order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, namely, us, whom He called not only from among Jews, but also from among nations."

Foundation of New World Laid at Christ's Death, Resurrection and Ascension

Revelation 13:8 "The Lamb who was slaughtered from the world's foundation."

1 Corinthians 3:11 "For no man can lay any other foundation than what is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

Hebrews 9:26 "Otherwise, He would have to suffer often from the world's foundation. But now He has manifested Himself once for all time at the consummation of the systems of things to put sin away through the sacrifice of Himself."

Foreshadowed in David and His Son Solomon

2 Samuel 7:12-16 "I will set up your seed after you, that shall proceed out of your bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for My Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever. ... but My loving-kindness shall not de­part from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before you. And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure for ever before you: your throne shall be established for ever."

1 Chronicles 17:11-14 "I will set up your seed after you, who shall be of your sons; and I will estab­lish his kingdom. He shall build Me a house, and I will establish his throne for ever. ... but I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom for ever; and his throne shall be established for ever."

1 Chronicles 22:10 "He shall build a house for My Name; and he shall be My son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever."

Comprised of Christ and 144,000 Associate Kings in Heaven—the "Seed" Organization

Genesis 22:17, 18 "In blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed."

And I heard a sound out of heaven.... And they are sing­ing as if a new song before the throne and before the four liv­ing creatures and the persons of advanced age; and no one was able to master that song but the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been purchased from the earth."

Revelation 7:4-9 "And I heard the number of those who were sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel: ... After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number."

Luke 12:32 "Have no fear, little flock, because your Father has approved of giving you the King­dom."

Isaiah 66:1 "Thus says Jehovah, Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool."

"

Revelation 14:4, 5 "These are the ones that did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are vir­gins. These are the ones that keep following the Lamb no matter where He goes. These were purchased from among mankind as a firstfruits to God and to the Lamb, and no falsehood was found in their mouths; they are without blemish."

1 Peter 1:4 "To an incorruptible and undefiled and unfading in­heritance. It is reserved in the heavens for you."

1 Peter 2:4, 5 "Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected, it is true, by men, but chosen, pre­cious, with God, you yourselves also as living stones are being built up a spiritual house for the purpose of a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices ac­ceptable to God through Jesus Christ."

James 2:5 "Listen, my beloved brothers. God chose the ones who are poor respecting the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom which He promised to those who love Him, did He not?"

2 Timothy 2:12 "If we go on en­during, we shall also rule together as kings; if we deny, He also will deny us."

Revelation 20:4, 6 "And I saw thrones, and there were those who sat down on them, and power of judging was given them. Yes, I saw the souls of those executed with the ax for the witness they bore to Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had worshiped neither the wild beast nor its image and who had not received the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand. And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ for a thousand years. Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection; over these the sec­ond death has no authority, but they will. .. rule as kings with Him for the thousand years."

Is a Theocratic Government

Isaiah 33:22 "For Jehovah is our Judge, Jehovah is our Lawgiver, Jehovah is our King; He will save us."

Philippians 2:9, 10 "For this very rea­son also God exalted Him to a superior position and kindly gave Him the Name that is above every other name, so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground."

Ephesians 1:19-23 "It is according to the operation of the mightiness of His strength, with which He has operated in the case of the Christ when He raised Him up from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above every govern­ment and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come. He also subjected all things under His feet, and made Him head over all things to the congregation, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills up all things in all."

Colossians 2:10 "And so you are pos­sessed of a fullness by means of Him, who is the head of all gov­ernment and authority."

1 Corinthians 6:2, 3 "Or do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you unfit to try very trivial matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? Why, then, not things of this life?"

Revelation 19:19-20:3, 11 "And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage the war with the One seated on the horse and with His army. And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who re­ceived the mark of the wild beast and those who render worship to its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulphur. But the rest were killed off with the long sword of the One seated on the horse and which proceeded out of His mouth. And all the birds were filled from the fleshy parts of them. And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thou­sand years. And he hurled him into the abyss and shut it and sealed it over him.. .. And I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it. From before Him the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them."

Will Vindicate and Eternally Establish Jehovah God's Uni­versal Sovereign Supremacy

For He must rule as king until God has put all ene­mies under His feet. As the last enemy, death is to be destroyed. For God 'subjected all things under His feet'. But when He says that 'all things have been sub­jected', it is evident that it is with the exception of the One who subjected all things to Him. But when all things will have been subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also subject Him­self to the One who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all things to everyone."

Matthew 6:9, 10 "You must pray, then, this way: 'Our Father in the heavens, let Your Name be sanctified. Let Your Kingdom come. Let Your will come to pass, as in heaven, also upon earth.' "

And the suck­ing child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den.

And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another in­habit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of My people, and My chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Jehovah, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass that, before they call, I will an­swer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."

Psalm 115:16 "The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah; but the earth He has given to the chil­dren of men."

What you sow is not made alive unless first it dies; and as for what you sow, you sow, not the body that will develop, but a bare grain, it may be, of wheat or any one of the rest; but God gives it a body just as it has pleased Him, and to each of the seeds its own body. However, this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit God's Kingdom, neither does corruption inherit incorruption. Look! I tell you a sacred secret: We shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, during the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised up incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this which is corruptible must put on incorruption, and this which is mortal must put on immortality."

As the one made of dust is, so those made of dust are also; and as the heavenly one is, so those who are heavenly are also. And just as we have borne the image of the one made of dust, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly one."

Even­tually when he arrived home after having secured the kingly power, he commanded to be called to him these slaves to whom he had given the silver money, in order to ascertain what they had gained by business activity. . . .
