The Kingdom

The Kingdom

Many people know the Lord’s Prayer. What is the meaning of the phrase: “Let your Kingdom come”?

The Bible’s answer

Elohim’s Kingdom is a real government established by Yaweh Elohim (God). “The Kingdom of Elohim” is also called “the Kingdom of Heaven” in the Bible, since it rules from Heaven. (Mark 1:14, 15; Matthew 4:17, King James Version) It shares many attributes of human governments, yet it is superior to them in every way.

  • Rulers. Elohim has appointed Y’shu the Messiah as King of the Kingdom and has given him more authority than any human ruler could ever have. (Matthew 28:18) Y’shu uses this power only for good, since he has already proved to be a reliable and compassionate Leader. (Matthew 4:23; Mark 1:40, 41; 6:31-34; Luke 7:11-17) Under Elohim’s direction, Y’shu has selected persons from all nations who will “rule as kings over the earth” with him in heaven.—Revelation 5:9, 10.

  • Duration. Unlike human governments, which come and go, Elohim’s Kingdom “will never be brought to ruin.”—Daniel 2:44.

  • Subjects. Anyone who does what Elohim requires can be a subject of Elohim’s Kingdom, without regard for ancestry or birthplace.—Acts 10:34, 35.

  • Laws. The laws (or commandments) of Elohim’s Kingdom do more than just prohibit wrong behavior. They raise the moral character of its subjects. For example, the Bible says: “‘You must love Yahweh your Elohim with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. The second, like it, is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39) Love of Elohim and neighbor moves subjects of the Kingdom to act in the best interests of others.

  • Education. While Elohim’s Kingdom sets high standards for its subjects, it also teaches people how to meet those standards.—Isaiah 48:17, 18.

  • Mission. The Kingdom of Elohim doesn’t enrich its rulers at the expense of its subjects. Instead, it will accomplish Elohim’s will, including the promise that those who love him will live forever on a paradise earth.—Isaiah 35:1, 5, 6; Matthew 6:10; Revelation 21:1-4.

We have a wonderful hope for the future

Y’shu only loved the people like Yahweh. That’s how he did things. People could not wait to be with him. They rejoiced around him. That is the true Messianic Religion, That is The Way.

We don’t have miraculous gifts, but we have love

John 13:34, 3534 I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are my disciples—if you have love among yourselves.”

1 Corinthian 13:8 Love never fails. But if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

1 Corinthians 13:13 Now, however, these three remain: faith, hope, love; but the greatest of these is love.
