The Gospel of the Kingdom Pt.7 Faith is the Victory...Believe the Gospel! (Sabbath Bible Study 10-22(2018) ()JS LOWTHER, February 7, 2018
Part of the The Gospel of the Kingdom series, preached at a Sabbath service
In the Greek scriptures of the LXX, although it has always been a kingdom message as may be seen in 1Sa_31:9; 2Sa_1:20; 2Sa_4:10; 2Sa_18:19,2Sa_20,26,31; 1Ki_1:42; 1Ch_10:9; 1Ch_16:23 ...Every verse here shows a Kingdom message being conveyed.
1Sa 31:8 And it came to pass on the morrow that the Philistines come to strip the dead, and they find Saul and his three sons fallen on the mountains of Gilboa.
1Sa 31:9 And they turned him, and stripped off his armour, and sent it into the land of the Philistines, sending round glad tidings ( eu-anggelizo / ???????????????G2097 ) to their idols and to the people.
If it is that the word Gospel still carries a preconceived meaning, that is that all good tidings or good news is YHWH God's News, this and the prior verses prove to the contrary.
Rather, Just as in this very first mention of the word Eu-anggel here in 1Sa_31:9, the good news was of King Saul the anointed king of Israel's death, that is the defeat of Israel was to the philistines the Gospel of their kingdom of Idolatry and people. This is the very the same word translated Gospel in our New Testament Scriptures when we preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ; every Greek reader of the Septuagint Hebrew scriptures would have recognized this word as Kingdom message, in the case of YHWH as Covenant God, the promissory God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Gospel of His Kingdom is the victory of He and His people over the world, the world as a gigantic a terrible Image, and Idol which rules the world of (remember Daniel ch.2) The Idol was terrible! so massive it's visage frightened the very king of the earth. Yet this stone, this simple piece of a mountain rock hewed by only the desires of YHWH God set his Stone as a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to the might and majesty of the world of Men! And were is this victory found in the Stone to be a mountain? A Mountain to be a Kingdom?
John's Recorded of God's Witness
1Jn_5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1Jn 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1Jn 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
