KINGDOM OF GOD….what is the Kingdom of God?
Consider THE HASHEMITES KINGDOM OF JORDAN which is the country of Jordan. It is more than a place….it is a collection of people in a particular land or area who are in allegiance to a King. Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the same, as is England. In the Kingdom of Jordan, King Abdullah II is King reigning with his wife Queen Rania. King Abdullah’s father, was King Hussein I, and before him was His father King Talal. We all know how succession happens in a Kingdom, but it might vary from Kingdom to Kingdom. King Hussein I had four wives, one being Queen Noor of Jordan, who was Lisa Halaby of Washington D.C., and American citizen at one time. King Rainer, of Monaco also had an American wife, Grace Kelly of Hollywood.
The important factor in a Kingdom is the allegiance that the people of any particular country pay towards the King. They are the subjects of the King (or it might be a Queen-England), and he/she is sovereign ruler and overseer of the people, the land, and the affairs that will affect that domain. A King of one domain is exclusive to that domain, and he does not have any rights over another Kingdom or other type of country.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS IN LIKE FASHION. THE KING OF THE KINGDOM IS A RULER OVER THOSE WHO PAY HOMAGE TO HIM, AND ELECT/CHOOSE TO BE SUBJECT TO THE KING. THE KING RULERS OVER THEM, AND TAKES CARE OF THEM, AND WORKS FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF HIS SUBJECTS. THE SUBJECTS DO NOT ALWAYS GET THEIR WAY, BUT THEY CAN KNOW THAT THE KING CARES DEEPLY FOR HIS SUBJECTS.
God’s Kingdom is the reign and rule in our lives. He is King of our lives.
