    Essay On Kingdom Of God

I will look at what the prevailing Jewish expectations and traditions were, as well as what Jesus says about the Kingdom of God throughout the bible. Finally, I will look at how Jesus and the Jewish expectations do and do not line up with each other. This essay will show how even though the Jews and Jesus both talked about the coming of the Kingdom of God, and their expectations were the same, it was their perception on what the definition and idea on Kingdom of God was, that let them down. Israel had an expectation of a prophet coming who would change the hearts of people: “Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the LORD arrives.

    Luke 13.28-29. What is meant by the kingdom of God? The “kingdom of God” is a reoccurring theme in the New Testament, but there is a lack of explanation as to what it means.

However, there is no mention of what the kingdom is and whether it is has already occurred or is yet to come; this has led to various theories…

    Thesis: Because the Kingdom of God is meant for all of His people, the church is apostolic by being sent out to create this Kingdom through reaching out to marginalized groups. Therefore, the church has the duty to focus on encountering God with these groups. Scripture calls the church to go fourth and create justice, good, and peace for all people. Simply, this is the Kingdom of God. In fact, the word of the Lord states, “For even the Son of Man did not come to serve, but to serve, and to give…

    children of God pull on their armor, lift up the sword, and draw their sword. Why do they do this? They are fighting for the kingdom of God. In order to properly fight for the kingdom of God, children of God must try to understand exactly what the kingdom of God is. There are many different aspects of the kingdom of God, and many times it can be difficult for finite human minds to comprehend. However, my understanding has brought me to believe that there are two different aspects to God’s…

    elect of God, you cannot refuse God’s salvation; your will has nothing to do with your salvation. You will be unable to resist God’s grace. P-Perseverance of the saints means that elect cannot lose their salvation. Once you are saved- which, if you are among the elect, will take place-cannot slip away; you will persevere in your faith until the Day of Judgement. If you do slip away from God, it is likely that you were not really one of the elect. I believe God calls us to show compassion, to…
