THE MESSAGE

THE REVELATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD

***********************************************

1. PURPOSE

The Lord Jesus came into this world to establish the Kingdom of God. The Angel Gabriel told Mary that she would give birth to a son who will reign on the throne of David and His kingdom will never end. The Lord Jesus did not come to start a new religion but to establish the Kingdom of God on the earth.

LUKE 1:26-33

In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,

to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.

The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."

Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.

But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.

You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."

ISAIAH 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

2. PROCLAMATION

The Lord Jesus began his ministry by preaching the gospel of the Kingdom. His message was focussed on the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is where God is the King and rules over His people. When we join the Kingdom of God we allow the Lord to rule over our lives and be seated on the throne of our hearts. We will live our lives according to the will and the guidance of God.

nor will people say, ’Here it is,’ or ’There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you."

PROVERBS 3:5-7

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.

3. PRAYER

The Lord Jesus taught his disciples to pray for the kingdom of God to be established on the earth. He wanted them to pray that the will of God will be fulfilled on the earth just as it is done in heaven. He did not pray for his disciples to be removed from the world . He wanted them to transform the world by being a salt and a light in this world. The Apostles were world changers and reformers. They did not allow persecution to discourage them. They were not selfish looking for their own welfare. They chose to live in this world in order to be a blessing to others.
