What is the gospel of the kingdom?
Jesus' ministry Jesus would often preach about the kingdom of God. He would use parables to describe what the kingdom of God is like. The wold gospel is translated from the Greek word euangelion, and it means good news.
It is good news because;it shows that we have a purpose.....it shows us that if we believe that message and use the gifts that Jesus has given us, we will be crown kings
and will rule with Jesus....we will be co-rulers with Jesus.
The gospel or good news of the kingdom of God is about the re-establishment of the kingdom of God on the Earth. Jesus is coming
back as the almighty God to save mankind from themselves and Satan…..Jesus is going to remove the spiritual blindness from the minds of all people. He will return at a time when the nations will be angry; the world will be in a state
of turmoil. It will be a time when almost all the nations are under a world ruling power or government, called the Beast....But not everyone will gladly submit to this world power.
At this time Satan and his demons will be stirring up the nations; nations/human beings are as easily stirred up to war against each other as it is easy for the wind to stir up the ocean.
But before the two dominant world powers can even get a chance to fight each other Jesus intervenes……but they will not welcome Him. They will see Jesus as the enemy and join forces to fight Him. They will not
know that this is Jesus of the Bible. After all, they have been deceived into rejecting God, so Jesus returning will be the farthest thing from their minds.
The armies will turn their hostility away from each other and turn to fight what they consider an invading enemy from space. But they will not stand a chance....the weapons they have will be useless against Jesus. Jesus will destroy
their armies with His words. All of a sudden some of them will have their eyes rotting away while they are still alive, there tongue rotting in there mouth before they can utter a command. Some of them their bodyies will rott away
while they are still standing on there feet.
But once the nations come to understand whom this person is, that it's Jesus, they will seek Him out. They will
see and hear rumors about how prosperous and blessed the Israelites are, after Jesus rescued them again from bondage. They will want Jesus to teach them His ways of how to live in peace with each other. This is where God's children will come in. When
Jesus returns the saints will be glorified. So when the nations or representatives of the nations come to Jesus, whom at this time will be ruling in Jerusalem over Israel, Jesus will send His brothers and sisters who will teach/rule them with love. Eventually
as more and more nations come under the loving rule of Jesus and the saints the whole world will be filed with the knowledge of God as the waters of the sea.
will at last be at peace with each other....the poor and destitute will become prosperous. Racism and sexism will be a thing of the past. No more crime, no more warring factions or tribes killing and maiming each other; people will no longer live in fear.
And by the way, at this time Satan will be chained and cast into the bottomless pit, so that he will not be able to deceive the nations any more.......until the end of the 1,000 years where he will be let lose for a short time.
So the question for Christians is are you telling people this gospel?
