Introduction to the Kingdom of God

This website provides basic information for Christians and non-Christians free of charge. It contains biblical information on the kingdom of God, what it is, how to enter and how to live in the kingdom.

It makes no difference whether you are a Christian or of another persuasion, this site has information that is vital to your life today, and your future life. All of us are involved in warfare, a spiritual warfare. Sadly, many Christians and non Christians alike are neither fighting anything at all, nor are they standing for anything. All mankind, by default, are placed in the kingdom of Satan and their end will be a lake of fire, Revelation 20:15; 21:8. But, there has been a way provided, through Jesus Christ, for all mankind to get out of the kingdom of Satan and into the kingdom of God. The choice to enter the kingdom of God must be made while we are alive on this earth, Hebrews 9:27.

Although far too many people, including Christians, don't appear to know that we are all engaged in a warfare. There is a spiritual warfare being waged 24/7, whether we know it or not, and whether we participate or not. Paul, when writing to a young preacher named Timothy, mentioned that battle and warfare in 1 Timothy 1:18.

Even if we are hostile toward God, it can be seen in Romans 5:8-10 that He loved us, even when we were in our sins, and made a way for us to be reconciled to Him and saved by His life. That reconciliation is available through the death of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9. When we are reconciled to God, we are translated from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God and receive forgiveness of our sins, Colossians 1:13-14.

All throughout the Bible we are warned about being deceived. So how do we tell the truth from lies, Acts 17:11? Truth can not be downgraded to the opinion of man, nor can we find truth by in any relative terms. There is truth, and then there are lies, or errors. Truth is absolute! Truth is based on the solid foundation of the Word of God. In a declaration Jesus made to the Father He said, "Your word is truth", John 17:17.

We have the command in 2 Timothy 2:15 to study diligently, and then we can rightly divide the Word of God. Through study we can begin to see the truth. We can't just read the bible, but we must study it diligently, meditate upon it, apply it to our lives, make it a part of us, and then we will begin to know the benefits of God's Word, Psalm 1:1-3.

Christian truth is the absolute truth given to us in God's Word. It is this absolute truth that can be used to discern the lies coming from the kingdom of Satan. Study the Bible, taking it as it is written, literally, except where the language uses figures of speech and/or clearly indicates that it is a parable or allegory. In this way you will come to the absolute truth of the kingdom of God.

Adam was the first of the human race and was to have fellowship with God and to rule on earth as God's representative. When Satan deceived Eve, Adam followed her in the deception by eating of the fruit of the tree, thereby sinning. Thus he lost his authority to rule over the earth, which was now taken over by Satan, who is now referred to as the god of this world, 2 Corinthians 4:4; John 12:31; Colossians 1:13.

The kingdom of God takes in all of creation, material and spiritual. However, since Satan is now ruling over the earth, it is in rebellion toward God. God has promised to set up His kingdom on earth again, through His Son Jesus Christ, and end this rebellion. The promise of this coming King is first indicated in Genesis 3:15; Genesis 15:18-21; Galatians 3:16. The Bible reveals this coming kingdom of God progressively from the book of Genesis through the book of Revelation. In this coming kingdom, the King of Kings, Jesus Christ will soon rule over the entire earth for a thousand years. At the end of the thousand years, God will defeat Satan and his followers and cast them into a lake of fire. Then, in the end, Christ will deliver up this kingdom to God, even the Father, 1 Corinthians 15:24-28. After this, there will be a new heaven and a new earth that will be His forever, Revelation 21:1; 11:15.
