The Gospel of the Kingdom pt.4 Fulfilled (SBS 10-1(2018) ()JS LOWTHER, January 17, 2018
Part of the The Gospel of the Kingdom series, preached at a New Moon service
The anticipation of this Kingdom proclaimed by the Gospel was a re institution of Exodus 19, as the disciples of Christ knew was the end result of the Coming King of Israel as recorded and proclaimed by the Ambassador Luke was a kingdom rule:
Luk_1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
and after all the preaching and the resurrection Luke tells us the disciple yet anticipated this literal fulfillment :
Act_1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he,ye have heard of me.
Act 1:5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
Act 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
This anticipation was no doubt caused by the former sited scriptures and more, as well as by Christ's own testimony Luke as records:
Luk_22:29-30And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;
That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
The Disciples did not interpret the Scriptures in a overly fleshly way as some may ignorantly or prejudicly suppose, rather they, as we, should take our Christ and His Word at face value, literally. It does not take a bible scholar to see the King, and Kingdom having it's very existence in the thrown of David a kingdom of Israel's united 12 tribes...literally.
