    The Kingdom of God

    October 8, 2009 by Brandy Vencel

    Si is currently taking a course on the Kingdom of God from T.M. Moore. He’s pretty excited about it, and I am, too. I have already learned through word of mouth that the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven are not distinct, but rather the same. I always thought this was so, but I wasn’t sure.

    Now I know.

    Anyhow, if anyone out there needs more books to read, here are the primary works assigned for the class:

    The Great Evangelical Disaster

    Christianity and Liberalism

    Three Treatises

    {assigned treatise is The Babylonian Captivity of the Church}

    As I was ordering these books for Si, I accidentally ordered Umberto Eco’s Art and Beauty in the Middle Ages, which will look great in my book pile.

    Ahem.

    Today, Si sent me an article T.M. wrote back in 2007. Here is a little sampling, a little encouragement, for today:

    The Scriptures indicate that our Lord Jesus Christ has received a kingdom from God, the Most High and Ancient of Days {cf. Daniel 7:13,14; Psalm 110; Acts 2:34-36}. The design of that kingdom is that a rule of righteousness, peace, and joy should come into being on earth, as it is in heaven, bringing the renewal of all things and the reconciliation of the world to God, expanding and growing and overwhelming all opposition to fill the earth with the knowledge of the glory of God {Romans 14:17; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Daniel 2:44,45; Isaiah 9:1-7; Habakkuk 2:14}. This kingdom has been given to the saints of the Most High God {Daniel 7:18}, who are instructed to receive it with thanksgiving {Hebrews 12:28}, pray that it might daily come into fuller and more complete reality {Matthew 6:10}, and seek it and its righteousness as their first priority in everything they do {Matthew 6:33}.
