“And this is eternal life, that they may know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17.3

A threefold vision

All who understand the “here and now” aspect of the Kingdom of God will exert themselves to realize as fully as possible the benefits of the reign of King Jesus in their daily lives.

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4.17

Kingdom come

Undoubtedly Jesus had the clearest vision of the Kingdom of God of all the Kingdom visionaries we’ve seen or will see. We’ve already observed that Jesus regarded the Kingdom as of the highest priority for His followers. We are to “seek first” the Kingdom, not as the first in a series, but the first in everything we do.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6.33

Pray for the Kingdom

We’re continuing to look at the primacy of the Kingdom of God as Jesus taught and lived it.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6.33

Shiloh

Jacob had prophesied of his son, Judah, that God would establish a Kingdom under his oversight that would include Israel and all nations (Gen. 49.8-10).

“Then the kingdom and the dominion,
And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven,
Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High.
His kingdom
is an everlasting kingdom,
And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.”
Daniel 7.27

The faithfulness of God

As the promises of Abraham slipped through the fingers of God’s wayward people, even the faithful among them must have wondered if God had changed His mind, and His covenant were no longer valid. Had the people of God at last and finally forfeited their privileges, and the promise of a kingdom, through their unbelief and disobedience?

It's All Grace. Right?

Yes, but we need to make sure we know what we mean.
