 Our Role in the Kingdom of God 

 

The wonderful world of tomorrow will be inaugurated at the return of Jesus Christ, who will rule as

King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16).  Every kingdom, power and government will be brought under His divine rule (Revelation 11:15). He will establish the Kingdom of God on earth. This was the heart of His message—the gospel, or good news, that He preached (Mark1:14-15).  Those sons and daughters of God who have been faithful to Him will share in Christ’s rule. Notice Christ’s promise: “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne”(Revelation 3:21). Those who overcome will be given responsibility as kings and priests of God in that Kingdom (Revelation 1:5-6).This amazing future was earlier foretold in the Old Testament. For example, the prophet Daniel was given a vision of Christ receiving His Kingdom from God the Father.

The Spirit of Man  

 

Mark 6: 7, 12, 13; and He called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them Power over unclean spirits……

And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

Those son and daughters of God who have been faithful to Him will share in Christ’s rule. Notice Christ’s promise: “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne” (Revelation 3: 21). Those who overcome will be given responsibility as kings and priests of God in that Kingdom. (Revelation1: 5-6). This amazing future was earlier foretold in the Old Testament. For example, the prophet Daniel was given a vision of Christ receiving His Kingdom from the Father. “I was watching in the night vision, and behold, One like the son of Man (Jesus Christ), coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days (God the Father), and they brought Him near before Him. Then to  Him was given dominion and glory and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed…
