The Kingdom of God The Best News You Could Hear!

What is the Kingdom of God or Kingdom of Heaven? When will it come? Where is it? Why is the message of the Kingdom of God called good news?

The Bible says, “Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God” (Mark 1:14). The Greek word euangelion, which is translated “gospel,” means “good news.” In other words, Jesus came preaching good news about the coming Kingdom of God.

Christ’s teaching on this subject was a continuation of what God had previously revealed through many of the Old Testament prophets. The prophet Daniel had given King Nebuchadnezzar an explanation of how the Kingdom of God would eventually be established. This explanation provides clear insight as to where God’s Kingdom will exist, who will be in it and when it will come.

When Jesus preached on this subject, many of the Jews of the first century were looking for the immediate fulfillment of prophecies that spoke of the restoration of their nation. After His resurrection and appearance to His disciples, Jesus’ followers asked: “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6). The Kingdom of God, however, is far more encompassing than simply what will happen to Israel.

In this section be sure to read more about what Daniel and Jesus said about this Kingdom. Also, be sure to read why the Kingdom of God is good news, what the Kingdom of God is, why it must come, when it will come, how you can seek first this Kingdom, whether the Kingdom is within you, Jesus’ role as King of Kings and why God is inviting people to be part of this Kingdom.
