Israel's Kingdom

Isn't it interesting that the books of the Bible are divinely laid out exactly the way history has transpired?

  1. Israel's kingdom prophesied (Earthly) (Daniel2:44) [Genesis to Malachi]
  2. Israel's kingdom at hand (Matthew 3:2-4, 4:17, 10:7) [Matthew through John]
  3. Israel's kingdom offered (Acts 1:6, 3:19,20)
  4. Israel's kingdom postponed (Romans 11:11, 11:25) [Romans through Philemon]
  5. Israel's kingdom established (Revelation 12:15, 20:4-6) [Hebrews through Revelation]

This kingdom is in heaven right now (Hebrews 12:22) but will come back down to earth in fulfillment of prophecy (Revelation 21:10, 23,24).

Please read:

  • Psalm 78
  • Psalm 106
  • Acts 7
  • Acts 13
  • Romans 11
  • Isaiah 5:1-8
  • Matthew 21:33-46 (Israel, not the Body of Christ, is defined as the vineyard.)

This is a condensed history of the nation of Israel from Egypt to their fall in Romans 11:11. The fall and rising again of Israel is an all important key to the understanding of the scriptures (Luke 2:34).

Our (the Body of Christ) eternal destination is heaven, not the earth (2 Corinthians 5:1, Ephesians 1:3-11, 2:6, Philippians 3:20, Colossians 3:1,2; 2 Timothy 4:18, 1 Corinthians 6:3).

Israel's eternal destination is earth, not heaven. (God promised Israel a literal, physical, visible, earthly, Davidic, Messianic kingdom, with Jesus Christ as the king of kings, ruling over the twelve apostles, who would rule over the twelve tribes of Israel, who rule over the nations of this earth. - Genesis 12:7, 13:14-17, 17:8, Numbers 33:50-56, Deuteronomy 6:23, 11:21, Isaiah 11:9, Jeremiah 23:5, Psalm 37:9-11, Matthew 5:5, Matthew 6:10.)
