The Gospel of the Kingdom (part 11) – The Eternal Kingdom

Then comes the end when Jesus delivers the kingdom of God to the Father (1 Corinthians 15:24-26).             At the end of the millennium Satan who has been bound will be freed and is permitted to deceive the nations (Revelation 20:7-9).

The Gospel of the Kingdom (part 10) – The Millennial Kingdom

The Millennial Kingdom has been described by Ladd as ‘the perfection of fellowship, full enjoyment of God’s love’ (Reference 2). Also see previous blog “Why the Millennial Kingdom”; May 24 2020.

Gospel of the Kingdom (part 4) – our Blessed Hope, Jesus Christ

Our Blessed Hope taught many parables on the Kingdom. Why? The parables on the gospel of the kingdom set forth the mystery of this kingdom; a new truth which God disclosed in the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. Again, there are eleven parables on the kingdom that I see in two parts. First, Jesus is speaking… Continue reading Gospel of the Kingdom (part 4) – our Blessed Hope, Jesus Christ
