On this program, we have often spoken about the ending of this present age being a necessary prerequisite for the coming kingdom of God. The big question this morning is, where are we in the progression from this age to the next? Is it all coming soon? How soon? Is it something to be afraid of? Should we “head for the hills?” Stay with us as we look into this fascinating prophetic subject and try to get a handle on coming events from a biblical perspective.
Last week we talked about God’s promise of a kingdom on earth, where all who have ever lived will have the opportunity to ultimately live in peace and harmony under the mighty rule of the Almighty God. We saw numerous scriptures that revealed this broad plan of salvation. This raised a question; if everyone will ultimately get the goodies, why bother to be a Christian now? Why put in all of the work, sacrifice and dedication when all men benefit anyway? On this program we look into what true Christianity is, what it costs and what its rewards are. Why be a Christian? Lots of reasons! Let’s look!
All Christians know the Lord’s prayer. It is taught when we are little children. Did you ever think about this phrase “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven?ʺ Why would Jesus teach us to pray for God’s kingdom to come on earth if it was not to be? Are there any other references to this earthly kingdom in the Bible? Stay with us as we look into this matter of God and His promised kingdom: Where it will be? Who will be in it? When it will be? Why it will be? How it will all take place?
