BIBLE READING: Isaiah 2. 2,3/ 1 Timothy 3. 14/ Daniel 2.44
Discussion:
The Kingdom existed in promise. Throughout the Old Testament, the kingdom/church existed in prophecy and promise. Isaiah said that in the last days the Lord’s house would be established and the Word of the Lord would go forth from Jerusalem. Paul identifies the Lord’s house as the Church. Daniel prophesied that God’s kingdom would be established “During the time of the kings of the fourth kingdom.” History tells us that this fourth kingdom referred to was the Roman Empire that ruled the known world until 476 AD. He went on to write “the God of heaven will set up another kingdom that will continue forever. It will never be destroyed. And it will be the kind of kingdom that cannot be passed on to another group of people. This kingdom will crush all the other kingdoms. It will bring them to an end, but that kingdom itself will continue forever.” This eternal kingdom is the one that was established on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2. The promise of its coming was fulfilled on that day and that same promise tells us it will “continue throughout eternity.”
