But that which had been hidden (a mystery) was, in Jesus, being revealed and made plain. Revelation 21:1-4 - And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth … "Old Testament," in fact, is an unfortunate and misleading name for that part of the Bible. It is interesting to note, however, that the people of Israel retain their identity as Israelites even as the Gentiles retain their identity as Gentiles in the eternal state. What is the Omnipotence of God? (4) In summary, the prophet declared that David’s house, kingdom, and throne would be established forever. (5) The Jews plainly expected a literal fulfillment. Jesus’ answer was that the kingdom of God was not … David resurrected from the dead will share this position of authority as a prince under Christ. “The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! The consummating Scripture of course in the New Testament which puts the capstone on all these indications is found in Revelation 20 where it is stated plainly that Christ will rule for 1000 years. When Our Savior taught that the Kingdom of God was like leaven that leavens the whole lump of dough, He used a daily experience of every person listening to demonstrate an incomparable dynamic. Israel will be persecuted, and their only hope will be to escape their enemies by hiding. Relevant Words of God “As My words are consummated, the kingdom is gradually formed on earth and man is gradually returned to normality, and thus there is established on earth the kingdom in My heart.In the kingdom, all the people of God recover the life of normal man. Four areas will be considered: first, the covenant with David; second, Old Testament confirmation; third, New Testament confirmation; fourth, prophetic fulfillment. (6) The throne and kingdom as a promise and inheritance belong to the humanity of Christ as the seed of David rather than belong to His deity. David himself had built permanent houses for his family, and he felt it was unfitting for the worship of God to center in such a temporary structure. Fire goes before him and burns up his adversaries all around. This point of view is quite unacceptable to the amillenarian and therefore for them some interpretation of the Davidic covenant must be found other than that of a literal fulfillment. He is the Creator and we are creation. Further, it is declared that Mary’s Son would reign over the house of Jacob forever. He is the President of Faith for Living and the D. James Kennedy Institute a long-time Presbyterian minister, and Chaplain (Colonel) USA-R. Dr. Milton is the author of more than thirty books and a musician with five albums released. Immediately before His statement that the kingdom of God suffers violence, Jesus honors John as the greatest prophet (Matthew 11:11). The victory of Jesus Christ has set the Church and the cosmos on an undeniable trajectory in which earthly kingdoms, powers, dominions, and opposition forces will also be enfolded, willingly or unwillingly, into the rule of the Lord. In short, we cannot separate Kingdom from Christ. When Jesus came preaching, our Blessed Savior was proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom. The force of the Hebrew, however, is that Israel will continue to possess the land perpetually, that is, until eternity begins. (7) There is no ground for identifying David’s throne and the Father’s throne. The Kingdom of God is not an actual location. It is affirmed unalterably that God is going to fulfill His Word to David regardless of what his seed does: “His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. This is the meaning of the promise that David’s house would continue forever. Gone is the frosty winter, replaced by a world of cities of spring, where spring lasts all year. The King James Version (KJV), also known as the King James Bible (KJB), sometimes as the English version of 1611, or simply the Authorized Version (AV), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, commissioned in 1604 and completed as well as published in 1611 under the sponsorship of James VI and I. Mary certainly would not understand by the phrase “the house of Jacob” a reference to saints in general regardless of racial background. God’s Kingdom on earth Old Testament prophets, while under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote about the Kingdom of God being established on earth (2 Peter 1:20-21). David addresses Jehovah in II Samuel 7:18, 19: “Who am I, O Lord Jehovah, and what is my house, that thou hast brought me thus far? Jacob in his prophetic summary of the future of Israel prophesied concerning Judah: “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.” Though the full significance of this passage has been debated by some scholars, it can hardly be disputed that it limits the throne to Judah and his descendants. Any study of the Kingdom of God without considering what the implications of the Kingdom for one’s own soul and destiny has missed the core teaching of Jesus. The Definition of the word Kingdom of God. His lightnings light up the world; the earth sees and trembles. I will be his father, and he shall be my son: if he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: but my lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name whereby she shall be called: Jehovah our righteousness. Such an idea of course is not contained in the Davidic covenant as it is recorded in II Samuel 7, but it is asserted that later Scriptures give this interpretation. Then a further step must be taken of examining the New Testament treatment of the same subject. He taught about “the relationship between Jesus’ ethical teaching and his preaching about the Kingdom of God,” as Ladd expressed in A Theology of the New Testament. George Eldon Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament, ed. Kingdom of God. It is probable that there would be little question about the meaning of this covenant, if it did not involve eschatology as a whole. 2.21; 4.31). You’re already logged in with your Bible Gateway account. And they shall dwell in their own land.”. In any case, Christ did not tell her that her request was out of bounds because there was to be no earthly rule. For this reason the implications of the provisions of the Davidic covenant can be determined only after ascertaining the interpretation placed upon this covenant by other Old Testament Scriptures. With the Scripture testimony before us, it is now possible for us to consider some of the problems which exist in this interpretation. (9) The literal fulfillment is requisite to the display of God’s government in the earth, necessary to the restoration and exaltation of the Jewish nation and deliverance of the earth from the curse. 25 The man was not able to pay. Charles H. Dodd, The Parables of the Kingdom (Glasgow: Collins, 1978). In the covenant David is assured that his seed will reign forever, while Solomon is only promised that his throne will continue forever. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even for ever. Jeremiah writes: “But they shall serve Jehovah their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. The tension between the kingdom of this world and the Kingdom of God is never ignored by Scripture. Jeremiah writes in Jeremiah 93:7, 8: “Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that they shall no more say, As Jehovah liveth, who brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, As Jehovah liveth, who brought up and who led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all the countries whither I have driven them. First intimations of a future kingdom are found in the promises given to Abraham in Genesis 17:6 where it is recorded: “And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.” This is restated in verse 16 of the same chapter in relation to the promise of the son of Sarah: “And I will bless her, and moreover I will give thee a son of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be of her.” The promise of a kingdom given to Abraham’s seed is subsequently narrowed to Isaac and Jacob, and in Genesis 49:10 is further limited to the tribe of Judah. The possession of the land is limited by the continuance of the earth itself and terminates with the destruction of the heavens and the earth at the end of the millennium. In a real sense, each time we pray, we are hastening the coming of the Lord. In this connection she is told that Christ will reign on the throne of His father David over the house of Jacob. Between the Testaments _____ GOSPELS; Kingdom in Gospels; Matthew Study Guide; Matthew Keys; Matthew outline & notes; Matthew 5–7; Matthew 7:24-27; Matthew 11:12; Matthew 13ff. We are entering into Kingdom business. Intertestamental. When Our Savior taught that the Kingdom of God was like leaven that leavens the whole lump of dough, He used a daily experience of every person listening to demonstrate an incomparable dynamic. The description of the new earth given in Revelation 21:22 seems clearly to include Israel as well as Gentile saints of all ages. It is a fact that the posterity of Abraham has never yet fully possessed and enjoyed the whole of the land so granted and that no son of David occupies David’s throne…The O. T. promises are all as certain of fulfillment in their O. T. sense and meaning and purpose to Israel, as are the N. T. promises certain of fulfillment to the Church.” A study of the Old and New Testament therefore seems to confirm a genuine eschatology for Israel involving their continuity as a nation, their regathering and restoration to their ancient land, and their enjoyment of a kingdom in which Christ will reign over them. (2) A spiritual fulfillment would not be becoming to a solemn covenant. Michael A. Milton, PhD (University of Wales; MPA, UNC Chapel Hill; MDiv, Knox Seminary), Dr. Milton is a retired seminary chancellor and currently serves as the James Ragsdale Chair of Missions at Erskine Theological Seminary. Probably the leading question in the entire argument is whether a literal fulfillment of these promises is to be expected. Calling it the "Old" Testament implies to some people that it is done away with and no longer relevant. In understanding the promises of a future kingdom given to Israel, one of the major Scriptures is that containing the Davidic covenant recorded in II Samuel 7 and I Chronicles 17. Therefore fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith Jehovah; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be quiet and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.” As in other passages, the fulfillment of the Davidic covenant is linked with the return of Israel to the land following their time of Jacob’s trouble, as indicated in the preceding context. One of the first texts dealing with this subject is found in the announcements of the angel to Mary that she is to be the mother of Christ. for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Pentecost divides these confusing aspects of the kingdom of God into two categories, the eternal kingdom and the theocratic kingdom.4 As Pentecost and others have noted, the theme of the theocratic kingdom can be traced from the Garden of Eden through the period of human government initiated by Noah, the period of the patriarchs initiated by Abraham, the kingdom under the judges, the kingdom under the kings, and finally the kingdom … The Kingdom of God is now moving through the lives of God’s people, one by one, and building an unstoppable roadway to a new, future, Kingdom that will express the fullness of the teaching of Jesus. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.' The covenant with David is confirmed not only by its dual revelation in II Samuel 7 and I Chronicles 17, but by the major confirmation of Psalm 89 and by many additional prophecies in the Old Testament such as Isaiah 9:6, 7; Jeremiah 23:5-8; 30:8-10; 33:14-17; Ezekiel 37:22-25; Hosea 3:4, 5, Amos 9:11, 15, and similar Old Testament passages. Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David: his seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me. Ezekiel 37:22-25 indicates that Israel in that future day will have one king over them and will be a people of God. Inasmuch as this would be the normal and natural understanding on the part of Mary in such a prophecy, it is almost unthinkable that God would have used this terminology if as a matter of fact the hope of Israel was a mistake and the prophecies given in the Old Testament were not intended to be understood literally. Orthodox Jews will apparently revive their ancient sacrifices and a temple will be provided. The provisions of the covenant are given in II Samuel 7 beginning in verse 11: “Moreover Jehovah telleth thee that Jehovah will make thee a house. Photo Credit: Thinkstock/SuzanaMarinkovic. Christ's office as mediator comprehends three different "functions, viz., those of a prophet, priest, and king. The victory of Jesus Christ has set the Church and the cosmos on an undeniable trajectory in which earthly kingdoms, powers, dominions, and opposition forces will also be enfolded, willingly or unwillingly, into the rule of the Lord: “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.’” (Revelation 11:15). Through them God gave the Scriptures and through them God has illustrated many of His attributes, especially those of His faithfulness, love, and righteousness. For any Jewish maiden who accepted the Old Testament prophecy concerning the future of Israel and entertained the hope of a coming Messiah, would hardly question that the prophecy given by the angel would be interpreted literally, that is, she would understand by the throne of David an earthly throne such as David enjoyed in his lifetime. These two verses nicely encapsulate Daniel’s vision of an end-time “son of man” who will defeat all the enemies of God and of His people. and is destined to continue until the second coming. (4) The language used, which is also used by the prophets, denotes a literal throne and kingdom. And to be “in Christ” requires repentance and faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. The Kingdom of God is a “leavening agent,” a “yeast,” a fermenting power that changes something for the better; and causes it to grow. The reference to the tent of David, of course, does not concern itself with any building as such but rather with the political power and sway which David enjoyed. Only those who pass the searching judgment of Christ are allowed to enter into the millennial period. (3) The throne of his kingdom would be continued forever and would not be taken away from David’s son even if he committed iniquity. God's kingly rule or sovereignty. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed saying, ‘Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.’” (Psalm 2:1-3). According to Matthew 20:20-23, the mother of James and John came to Christ with a request concerning them: “Command that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left, in thy kingdom.” She certainly was not asking that these disciples would share the Father’s throne in glory, but it is obvious that what she anticipated was that they would share the earthly rule of Christ in the kingdom promised to Israel. The Old Testament contains no references to the kingdom of God. It seems quite clear that the disciples anticipated much the same kind of a literal fulfillment. How Is the Kingdom of God “Already but Not Yet”? It is certainly extreme spiritualization to take the regathering of Israel as an equivalent of the outcalling of the church and the execution of “justice and righteousness in the land” as being a reference to the rule of Christ in heaven, as amillenarians would need to interpret the passage. In the covenant as originally given there is a careful distinction between the seed of David, the seed of Solomon, and their respective thrones. Such a situation is quite foreign to the present age. Jeremiah writes: “Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will perform that good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and concerning the house of Judah. Just like Adam’s dominion over the world, God’s promise that Israel would be a blessing to the nations (Gen 12:1-3) does not materialize in the Old Testament either. Further light will be cast upon this passage in the study of the New Testament confirmation. He understood the promise meant that his house would continue forever. A covenant will be signed for a period of seven years, which will be the last seven years of Daniel’s 490 years allotted to Israel. It would seem evident, therefore, that the people of Israel were acting in good faith when they expected God to revive their kingdom, deliver them from their enemies, and restore them to their ancient land. Premillenarians, on the other hand, believe that prophecy is not a special case requiring spiritualization any more than any other area of divine revelation and they believe also that prophecy should be interpreted normally—that is, in an ordinary, grammatical and literal sense unless the context or theology as a whole plainly indicates to the contrary. Jesus Christ was declaring the unparalleled rule and reign of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit had appeared unto Man through the promised Messiah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. One of these is in the birth of Christ Himself who literally fulfilled many promises pertaining to David’s seed. That the rebuilding of the tabernacle of David is the restoration of the kingdom to Israel and not the construction of the church in the present age is borne out by the prophecies that are related to it in Amos, which have already been noted in a previous discussion. Of major importance is the main thesis of his remarks which is based on a reference and partial quotation of Amos 9:11, 12. From the time of the Babylonian captivity on there was no literal earthly kingdom. During the first half of this seven years Israel will enjoy prosperity. (2) The temple which David desired to build would be constructed by this son. Any ruler in this world is subject to the unrivaled King. These arguments, usually ignored by amillenarians, have great weight and seem to provide a reasonable approach to the Davidic covenant and the promise of the kingdom. The Kingdom is here. At the end of the millennial reign of Christ, Satan is loosed and divine judgment overtakes any born in the millennium who rebels against Christ, who are Jewish and Gentile unbelievers. It should better be referred to as the Hebrew Scriptures, because there is more than the old covenant (i.e. Here in the council in Jerusalem the question had been raised concerning the status of the Gentiles in the present age. The beastly powers of this present evil age not only resist the rule of Jehovah, but actively conspire to undo His dominion. M. R. Malcolm, Paul and the Rhetoric of Reversal in 1 Corinthians: The Impact of Paul’s Gospel on His Macro-Rhetoric (Cambridge University Press, 2013). It was difficult for the Jews to understand that for the time being the Gentiles should have a place of equality with Israel, in view of the many prophecies in the Old Testament which anticipated Israel’s pre-eminence and glory. Zechariah, the Kingdom of God in _____ Kingdom Writings Index (PDF) Kingdom Writings Index (Word) Kingdom Studies Digest; New Testament. Rather, it is linked to the earth and to the seed of Israel, and to the land. A concluding word is found in Zechariah 14 where it is predicted that after the second coming of Christ when His feet will touch the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4), and “Jehovah shall be king over all the earth” (Zechariah 14:9). To follow Christ is to become a subject of a Kingdom not of this world, yet, a Kingdom that is within you. It was rather that it was improper to obtain such an honor as a requested privilege. The promise given to David includes the following provisions: (1) David is promised a child who would succeed him on the throne. To her it could mean only one thing and that is the descendants of Jacob, namely, the twelve tribes of Israel. A major world war brings the period to a close. “He says: ‘It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.’” (Isaiah 49:6). The difficulties in interpretation come in examining the exact meaning of the term house as it pertains to David’s posterity and the words throne and kingdom. Though Christ refused the request on the ground that only the Father had the right to bestow such an honor, He did not deny that such an honor might be afforded someone, which would hardly have been the case if the throne of God itself had been in view. In this and other Old Testament references there is no allusion anywhere to the idea that these promises are to be understood in a spiritualized sense as referring to the church or to a reign of God in heaven. The covenant with David is not only given twice in its major content— namely, II Samuel 7 and I Chronicles 17—but it is also confirmed in Psalm 89. The heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, will descend and rest upon the new earth. David who is raised from the dead along with Old Testament saints has a part in the government of the people of Israel. During the thousand-year reign of Christ, the remnant nation Israel, surviving the great tribulation, will greatly increase as will the Gentile nations, and repopulate the earth and rebuild their cities. Here it is recorded that the disciples came to Christ and asked the question according to Acts 1:6: “Lord, dost thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” From the question itself it becomes apparent that the disciples were still anticipating an earthly kingdom and hoped for its immediate realization.
