  • Ok...Why a Kingdom?

    Was asked this by an another. What is the significance of a Kingdom based rule in the Bible from OT to Revelation? Is it strictly ancient culture or middle-eastern culture or is there other significance?

    In a kingdom all authority and power resides in a monarch.

    Unless otherwise noted, scripture quotes are from the 1984 edition of the NIV.

    Faith--Sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible.

      The Kingdom is really a place where ourselves live with temporary dwelling in physical world. Desirable is the upper, low density parts where mature (perfect ) souls graduate.

        The "Kingdom of Jordan" is still in use today. God never wanted the Hebrews to have a kingdom, but suffered them to have one, and then it split.

        Jewish traditional views on having a kingdom was more trying to fit God into the physical position of being their anointed God as their king.

        That is physically impossible in this current physical condition. The work of Jesus on the cross despite him telling his disciples that his kingdom was not of this world was not the route to go about setting up a physical kingdom and probably not a spiritual one on earth either. The church or body of Christ is a spiritual as in non-physical reality. Definitely not a kingdom on earth.

        Asking why a kingdom is a mute point, especially when the middle east still views control as a physical kingdom type government. Government is not a way to control human hearts, but to curb the harmful actions that are physical representations of the heart. Only God can be in control when it comes to thoughts and emotions that lean towards sinning against God and other humans. Government can only step in after the act is carried out. And very few humans even accept that God gives an out before the physical act happens. It is not our will that can stop sin. It is doing God’s will that stopping sin in the thought stage is possible.

          A kingdom ruled be a thoroughly benevolent ruler is the best authority structure anyone could hope for.
