Ken’s Articles

 Ken Packer’s weekly articles on the Christian faith.

Which kingdom?

Which kingdom will prevail over all others in the end time?

First, consider Israel – now a democratic republic surrounded by twenty-two hostile Arab/Islamic dictatorships. They are 640 times her size and 60 times her population.

We have all seen how each modern attempt by near neighbours to eradicate tiny Israel has failed.

But, second, have we all realised that this miraculous survival by Israel is in direct fulfilment of God’s wonderful promise?

“I am with you, says the Lord, to save you; though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you.” Jeremiah 30.11.

Israel is safely in God’s protective hands!

Third, see also God’s further promise to Israel about Messiah’s coming world rule based in Jerusalem. “He shall judge between the nations.”  And notice the great outcome – “neither shall they learn war any more.”!  Isaiah 2.4.

Fourth, there is even a foreshadowing of all this in the Lord’s Prayer! Concerning his coming world rule, Jesus tells us to pray to God, “Your kingdom come!” Matthew 6.10.

When Messiah Jesus ultimately rules the world, in which kingdom will he be enthroned?

The kingdom of Israel!
