The Holy Bible teaches us about a Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is Divine and is utterly beyond any human effort to affect it. That people confuse political action with the Kingdom of God is itself an artifact of the modern project. That project is, to a great extent, a Christian heresy.

Democracy vs the Kingdom of God - Two opposing Systems In every generation since the beginning of time, man has always dreamt of a paradise on earth.

There are five books that have greatly shaped my understanding of the kingdom of God. These are my top-five and the books that I recommend to pastors, students, and anyone interested in the theology of the kingdom.

The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven describe God’s rule over Israel. God’s covenants define this rule, i.e., Abrahamic, Mosaic.

Best ’s book, Christ’s Kingdom is Future, pp. In the genealogy of the King, Matthew goes from Jesus Christ, “ son of David,” to “ David the king ” (Matt.

1: 1, 6).The royalty of David’s family was established according to God’s eternal purpose of electing grace. In Luke's Gospel, Jesus contrasts the goals and purposes of human government with God's kingdom. He speaks of the need for food and drink, for clothing.
