God's Chosen Church Part2
Kingdom of God on This Earth
Isa_9:6 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, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Familiar words we hear in the pagan festival season each year, as the world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ the king of the Jews, the king of the coming kingdom.
Yes, Jesus is coming to rule this earth and professing Christians are making a mockery of this, Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Daniel explains the vision of world events as it relates to this world governance and the kings and kingdom thereof. Daniel stated that the final kingdom that is to take over this world is the kingdom of God that God himself will set up. Not a manmade kingdom but a God made kingdom interprets as the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven.
So what’s a kingdom?
1 A domain in which something is dominant
2 A country with a king as head of state
3 The domain ruled by a king or queen
4 A monarchy with a king or queen as head of state
5 A basic group of natural objects

The bible definition is of no difference, in the Hebrew and Greek language it is render as
mal-koo-yaw' From H4427; a rule; concretely a dominion: - empire, kingdom, realm, reign, royal. bas-il-i'-ahFrom G935; properly royalty, that is, (abstractly) rule, or (concretely) a realm (literally or figuratively): - kingdom, + reign.
What most Christians can’t believe is that the heavenly Kingdom will be set up here on earth. Even when the bible points this out in many scriptures their deceived minds will not allow them to grasps this truth and marvellous plan for mankind.
This is the Gospel that Jesus came with, that you must repent because this kingdom that you heard of is near it is almost here at you finger tips.
John the Baptist and others knew about the coming earthly Kingdom of God. It was written in their books and scrolls. It was a part of the books of the prophets.
Mat 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
How John knew about this kingdom? The same way the world knew about it, from God through the mouths of the prophets.
All the earth
A King will come to rule earth
In the book of Daniel, his vision, that great prophecy, known as the beasts of revelation. So many books and artistes have been written about it and they all have something in common and one such thing is that all the kingdoms that was governed and still is are all earthly kingdoms. They have been and are here on this earth. And it is clearly stated that a ruling, everlasting kingdom is going to put an end to all these beastly like earthly governing kingdom on this earth. Read the book of Daniel for yourself.
The climax of all this is when God will come and drastically put an end to this man’s tyranny and his persecution of the saints (Daniel 7: 9-11). After that, the Son of Man will come and be given a kingdom and all people and nations will serve him (v. 13-14, 27). The point seems to be both to warn the saints of this dreadful time to come, but also to give them hope by showing them that in the end, God is victorious, the antichrist is destroyed, Jesus rules the world and the saints are rewarded by allowing to share in this rule with him (v. 18, 27).
The visions of Daniel all gave clear interpretation that at the end of this earth age, a King will come and take over the entire earth and that king is Jesus Christ of the Bible.
We can go deep into these visions another time but for now let us continue, to establish what I can’t understand what Christians can’t understand that Jesus is coming back, here to earth to sit on David’s throne and rule.
Eze 37:22-24And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
This is prophecy is speaking of the time when God Kingdom will be ruling over the entire on the face of the earth.
Zec 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
This is talking of no other time than when God is ruling over the entire earth, The Buddhist, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and the nations that worship cow, snake, for god all these idol worshiping will continue until The Kingdom of God comes to this earth.
Rev_20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Now when I listen to some of the explanations given by Christians and wise men for these texts that I just quote I really wonder what is going on in the minds of these people.
But no matter how we try to interpret this scripture the word of God says what is. There will be nations on earth, All over the earth during the thousand year’s reign of our King,
Let us call the word of God, to tell us exactly what God says and to show some of those misinterpret scriptures?
Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
1Co_15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
There are so many scriptures that clearly tell us that the kingdom of god will be here on this earth and yet because of a few misunderstood texts Christianity rather to think that they are going to heaven when God is coming to earth.
1. Some say they will be in heaven going through books for the thousand years to see why “John, Judas, etc. never made it there… what crop.
2. Some say they can never be a part of the reigning kingdom of God cause the number
(144,000) have been sealed
3. , and some say that going to walk on street of gold and others say
4. Jesus is not coming back to this earth, because the kingdom will never be on earth with mortal man at the same time, because flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of God. We will address all these issues here on A “Better Way of Life” and “Vital Christian Issues”.
Who will enter the Kingdom of God, will you? Is our next question in Part 3 of “God’s Chosen Church?”
