benefits of the kingdom of god

39 The Kingdom also helps us to keep free from the snare of materialism. Because we are heirs of the kingdom we have a legal right in the spirit realm to receive the benefits of the Kingdom! 7:12) At first it had God alone for its invisible King, with prophets and judges representing him to the people. Why do we not see a happy world today? 11:8-10) No more than when they first lived on this earth, over 3,500 years ago, will these patriarchs need a host of restrictive laws for proving their faith when they are resurrected to serve as “princes” in a paradise earth.​—Ps. In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus referred to “the things the nations are eagerly pursuing.” He said the questions constantly on their minds are “‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’” But are these the all-important things? That is why human efforts to make this earth a joyful home for all mankind fall so far short of what God promises by means of his own rulership. 7, 8. 20 Thus, in laying the foundation for his government over the earth, Jehovah has first given us the benefit of these necessary things: (1) a firm basis for faith in the administration that he would provide, (2) a knowledge of the principles of his government, (3) a demonstration of his qualities as universal Ruler and (4) a sure and unmistakable identification of the Messiah, the One who would be mankind’s Deliverer and the King ruling in Jehovah’s name. The people’s interests began to be forgotten. . A unique set of factors came together in synergy at the historical genesis of the Vineyard movement. And if you have ever seen a mob in action you know what that would mean​—for in a mob people take the opportunity to vent hatred, greed and viciousness, feeling that no one will identify them for punishment. What would it require? 26. In the long period of time until now God has been selecting the 144,000 persons who will be associate kings. The kingdom of God includes many principles (standards) that when carefully considered and lived out will produce the benefits of living in the kingdom. (Matt. Hide yourself for but a moment until the denunciation passes over. In line with Genesis 3:15, why can it not be said that God is idle? The Bible says in John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son. These are proclaiming the “good news” to still others. With this in view, it has taken time to establish a foundation for the entire world of mankind that will live under his Kingdom rule. Surely, they could restrict God’s people only from doing harm or suffering harm from others. On another occasion, the homes of two families of Jehovah’s Witnesses were in an area that was undergoing shelling. (a) What is urgently necessary for all of God’s people today? Then one family accepted a Bible study with a visiting minister of Jehovah’s Witnesses. As a son of God he had intimacy with Him, evidently receiving daily communication. (a) Who only can bring about desirable government and why? 7 benefits of citizenship in the Kingdom 1. 20:7-15. How will all creation come to depend directly on Jehovah’s sovereign rule? 19. 4:5-7) Often this has served as a foretaste of the protection that God promises his people during the “great tribulation,” when the Kingdom goes into action to destroy the opposing nations.​—Matt. None have truly satisfied the needs of all the people. So if He told us to do it, that means we can. At least two of Jehovah’s Witnesses were killed by sniper fire in Lebanon, and there have been times, too, when they have died in disasters such as earthquakes. I only wish other divorcees in the world would come to know Jehovah and realize there’s someone who will return your love a thousand times over, who gives you a reason to want to go on living. It is beneficial. Firstly, God can’t ask us to do something that is beyond our capacity. Thus, through his prophet Isaiah, Jehovah extends the invitation: “Go, my people, enter into your interior rooms, and shut your doors behind you. (Gen. 8:18, 20) When Moses parted the waters of the Red Sea, did he then pass through alone? 24 But God purposed to have more than one person as ruler in the Kingdom. Governments can make some minor moves to adjust matters and make conditions a little better for the people. For individual interests also become community interests, and a government cannot bring contentment and happiness unless the people as a whole act in harmony. (a) Jehovah has given us the benefit of what necessary things? He came to give us the opportunity to become members of His family and citizens of His kingdom. These raise the question as featured on the cover of Newsweek magazine last year: Is there “Too Much Law?”. The law of love is upbuilding and beneficial. What knowledge and interest would a successful ruler need to have? (b) Why does not God impose his kingdom by a lightninglike coup d’etat? We call these experiences miraculous, but in reality, they’re normal for a citizen of the kingdom of God. (Zeph. If you are totally committed to God, you will see the Benefits of Kingdom Commitment. How does Israel serve as a pattern showing what results from man-rule? . The beautiful thing about being in God’s kingdom is that the benefits of being a citizen apply no matter where you live or what your circumstances are. Some, through a desire to gain his favor or because of fear, became worthless “yes-men.” Others even conspired against their ruler.​—Compare 1 Kings 12:8-19. 8 So rulership over other men proved to be too much for any man or body of men, even though those men had God’s perfect law. (a) What did Jehovah accomplish by dealing closely with Israel? His purpose is to have people enlightened and educated to know him and to submit willingly to his administration. The Bible tells us that they are a “great crowd” who will survive the crushing of the governments of the earth by the Kingdom “stone” mentioned by Daniel, to become the foundation for the “new earth.” (Dan. 20:24), 4 After thousands of years of human existence, why do we not see the peaceful, prosperous and happy world that people everywhere long for? In what ways is God-rule more beneficial than man-rule? 48. (Rev. What prospects are held forth for God’s people as indicated by 1 Corinthians 15:24-28? God’s Kingdom will end wars, sickness, famine, even death itself. In Japan, in Germany, in Nigeria​—in fact, all around this earth—​God’s kingdom is being proclaimed, Besides present Kingdom benefits, there is the hope of a tranquil life in God’s new order, The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom—1961, The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom—1978, book of Romans, chapter two, verses 14 and 15. 49. 7 The ancient nation of Israel serves as a pattern to teach mankind the lesson that human rule can never bring the kind of life that people everywhere seek. 7:2, 3). (Gen. 3:8) But this man rebelled and became unclean and unfit to stay a member of God’s family and was expelled from his garden home as a rebel. How does God show interest in earth’s affairs? 50. Some years ago the villagers were armed with pistols and rifles for use during feuds, and there were frequent slayings. 43 Keeping together as a family and as a Christian congregation can bring benefits in many ways. The “Kingdom of God” is often a misunderstood term, even among the religious. . It is because the law of the Kingdom, the law of love, is written on their hearts. (Gen. 9:4; 17:9-14) But it was their faith manifested by obedience to the commands of God that showed them to be worthy of a place as subjects of the Kingdom. Contrast it with the thousands of restrictive statutes in the law books of the nations, many of which are used to police unwilling citizens. Jesus Christ told His disciples to seek the Kingdom of God first. Isn't that true. How long would it take to select and train the rulers of such a government? 15:24-28) For continued existence, all creation will then depend on obedience to the Sovereign Rule of the King of eternity. . 45. 5. This alienated mankind from God. 36. They have written constitutions containing fine ideals and principles. 34. 24:21, 22; Dan. 3 That is why most governments have generally set out with good intent. It shows that the Kingdom “stone” mentioned by Daniel was “cut out” of the “mountain” of God’s sovereignty for the express purpose of vindicating his universal sovereignty and reestablishing this original close relationship over the earth. Kingdom people are the men and women, boys and girls, who consciously, upfront, unapologetically flow under the rule of God. Not at all! 29:2). Whatever the complaints made, however, the fact remains that some sort of government is clearly better than no government at all. In that nation the rulers often did well for a while. God, however, was not limited in his means to correct this. in order that when he arrives suddenly, he does not find you sleeping. 13:10). “● The efficiency and organization of the enterprise, with some 2,200 volunteers signed up for tasks ranging from a complete scrubdown of the building to the cooking of meals.

These have to meet the highest qualifications, as Revelation 14:4, 5 states: “These are the ones that keep following the Lamb [Jesus Christ] no matter where he goes. Without government there would be no order; it would be no less than mob rule. So, while the Kingdom of God is already begun (inaugurated by Christ) and Christ is already ruling from heaven, the full benefits of the Kingdom have not yet been realized, and … . “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not … (a) What ought to be the purpose of government? The Bible, in the prophecy of Jeremiah, chapter 10, verse 23, says about this: “To earthling man his way does not belong. Christ would possess full, complete power, but the Bible shows, as stated at Revelation 14:1-3, that God purposed to have 144,000 others with Christ as associate kings and administrators. 127:1) (b) What shows that God is concerned and interested in each one of mankind? P.O. . But what I say to you I say to all, Keep on the watch.” (Mark 13:35-37) And Matthew’s report adds this: “Prove yourselves ready, because at an hour that you do not think to be it, the Son of man is coming.”​—Matt. 145:3-5). Although the kingdom of heaven was only as yet near, Jesus gave special knowledge of it to his disciples. It really works among those who give allegiance to that heavenly kingdom. . 36 Even now, in advance of its thousand-year rule over earth, the heavenly kingdom is providing innumerable benefits for its loyal supporters, who acknowledge Jesus as their King. Luke 17:20-21 (KJV) – And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation : Neither shall they say, Lo here! What rulership did God purpose humans to exercise, and what has resulted from man’s going beyond this? Just how the law of the Kingdom works is illustrated by what happened in two villages in Mexico. He tells us: “As these things start to occur, raise yourselves erect and lift your heads up, because your deliverance is getting near.” (Luke 21:28) Yes, deliverance by God’s kingdom out of the wicked “system of things”! 30. That kingdom would reestablish his relations with humankind and bring them back into proper orbit in his universal government, as they were at the first. (Rom. God gave His best because He loves you and I. And the benefits of those Kingdom blessings will endure into all eternity. Because they apply the law of the Kingdom in their lives. Today, we observe the good news of the Kingdom proclaimed in virtually every corner of the earth, and we see many more than 144,000 persons, in fact, over two million persons, gathering together in peace and unity in true worship of God. 13. The police could do nothing about it. Help those who are walking dead, help the backsliders, help the confused, help the frustrated, help the spiritually sick, help the … Legalistic religion is all about rules, judgment and impossible standards, and there’s nothing attractive about that. Friction, violence and wars have resulted, with contending sides struggling for domination. The Bible helps us to understand. Thus they became lovingly united under God’s kingdom. How will all men be again like Adam​—sons of God, with direct approach to him? 23 Then came the Messiah, the one whom God would use to head the Kingdom rulership. Therefore have no fear: you are worth more than many sparrows.”​—Matt. Often these men were seeking their own selfish interests, and they wrongly advised and misled the ruler. What special benefits may we enjoy by continuing to assemble together in time of crisis? (Isaiah 42:1; Matthew 12:17, 18) 5. Jesus’ earthly life proved that he was from God. In the Bible book of Romans, chapter two, verses 14 and 15, we read: “Whenever people of the nations that do not have law [that is, a law direct from God] do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. 17 That is why the bringing in of God’s kingdom has taken time. (Dan. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. 24:44. God commands those who love him: “Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues.” (Rev. God made man with a desire for order and with a conscience to distinguish right from wrong. 22. for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you . You are children of God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, you can function by the same rules, rights and benefits that the God of Heaven functions by! 41 By letting the Kingdom’s principles operate in their family lives, Jehovah’s servants are spared many of the sorrows that accompany the breakdown of the family in this modern world. Jesus said in Mathew 6: 19-21. Therefore God had not wasted time. 49 Mark’s account of Jesus’ prophecy gives these concluding words: “Keep on the watch, . 119:155, 156. How much more instructive, convincing and moving, not only to hear and read God’s declarations, but, additionally, to see in the Bible’s historical record the proof that what he says he also carries out in righteousness and justice. Just after the last sister had entered, a rocket exploded right outside the door. Adam worshiped God in a Father-son relationship. But the people came to want a human king, one whom they could see and who would give them prestige in the eyes of other nations. However, the law of that kingdom is far different from the oppressive laws that have been enforced in many man-made kingdoms down through history. 6:26). Eventually, practically everyone in the village began studying and embraced the Bible truths. 34 This remarkable unity, distinctively observed among Jehovah’s Witnesses throughout the earth today, is one of the rewarding benefits that they enjoy due to giving prior allegiance to God’s kingdom and following its law of love. Peace is the first glimpse of the inner kingdom of God. Wisdom and love would be needed in order to follow and apply the law for everyone’s benefit. 37 True Christian unity and its benefits are made to stand out when the nations of earth become locked in fratricidal war. Commitment to life comes with various benefits. Jesus preaches this sermon to espouse Kingdom living. What people want is to better their lives, which is why we’re always setting out to improve our situation. 46 How the Kingdom will perform that miracle of protection, we do not yet know. (a) What do we see as a result of God’s patience? Not by a mere display of power, speaking in awe-inspiring tones from heaven. No, rather, God’s Son had the unmistakable credentials of the Hebrew Scriptures identifying him clearly as the one that was to come as the great Prophet of Jehovah and as the King. It makes unnecessary a law code with a long list of rules to nudge them into line. 10:25) When they returned home it was to find that one house had been completely destroyed by a bomb, and the other house had been so sprayed with shrapnel that no one could have survived in it. (Matt. No, it was a family project. . How has the world taken note of benefits derived by God’s people from their obeying the law of God’s kingdom? Why has it taken much time to select Christ’s associate kings? And what is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?”​—Mic. 2. Here are two of them: 1. As to God’s knowledge of the human makeup, the psalmist wrote at Psalm 139:3, 4, 16: “You have become familiar even with all my ways. How do you thank someone for saving your life?”. How does the operation of the Kingdom’s principles in family life help in a practical way? 27. Will it place burdensome restrictions on them, or, rather, will they find genuine happiness in submitting to its rule? 31 These words remind us of faithful men who ‘walked with the true God’ in ancient times​—Abel, Enoch and Noah. (b) By what means will God restore proper government over humankind? But men went beyond this and assumed domination over other men. 25 What do we see as a result? When Jesus came to the planet, He didn’t come to start a religion. They had lost all their material possessions, but​—most important—​they themselves were still alive! 45 Does this mean that Jehovah’s Witnesses will always have physical protection, under all circumstances? Why is the Kingdom of God so important? They have tried to serve for the benefit of the people. 32 From all of this we can appreciate a fundamental difference between God-rule and man-rule. How did the coming of the Messiah prove that God had not wasted time? 9. There are great benefits of seeking the kingdom of God. Many of these nations bitterly opposed God’s worship and the Israelite nation. . (1 Sam. No, God would take the time to reveal his principles and qualities by having dealings with people. They had his law; they had the principles of true worship of Jehovah. 14:29-31) Similar benefits may be enjoyed today as families and congregations keep together in the loving association that God’s Word encourages.​—Compare Acts 2:46, 47. 19 But Jehovah is an invisible God. 42 New ones coming to a knowledge of Kingdom truths have often been benefited, too, in finding proper guidance on how to solve life’s problems. (b) What does Micah show with regard to Jehovah’s requirements? During this time He did not deal with the other nations unless they in some way touched upon the affairs of his chosen nation. Using these men, he caused the kingdom of God to be preached throughout all Israel, and later, after his death and resurrection, to all nations. He proved that he had, in perfect and complete measure, the qualities needed for one who could be entrusted with full authority. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God. 4:11). How could men be given enough evidence to have faith in such a government​—to see that it was beneficial in all its structure and principles—​something to which they would be willing to entrust their lives? Miraculous blessings, protection and provision are yours as a member of God’s family! But everyone within was safe. Top Five Blessings Of Being In God’s Kingdom – Vincent J. Eagen, III. They began to rely on their own wisdom and to listen to men, who had only human wisdom. Not necessarily so. We've become a new creation (Isaiah 33:24) (Psalm 72:16) (Isaiah 25:8) 4. Here is an example: During the civil war in Lebanon, Jehovah’s Witnesses in that land kept together, and they had remarkable experiences. That proved to be exactly the case. To be totally committed to God's words requires work. 6. For it will come in upon all those dwelling upon the face of all the earth. In earthly kingdoms, the status of citizenship is necessary to identify persons who will be loyal to the king so the king can know with whom he can share power. 43.

Hostile attitudes were soon replaced with friendly ones. Throughout the meeting, rockets and mortar fire fell around them like rain, shaving off lampposts and peppering the surrounding buildings with shrapnel, but not a single thing hit the apartment where they were gathered. Since God is the Creator of everything, He reigns over all things. Deliverance by God’s kingdom into a paradise earth​—where the Kingdom will shower blessings on mankind for a thousand years! God Reigns over All Things. 14:28) For the state to have peace, there must be a condition of peace and unity among individuals. Why is it so important for the ruler to know the minds and hearts of the people? Those on earth who thereafter pass the decisive test of their loyalty to Jehovah’s Universal Sovereignty will forever honor Jesus as God’s chief agent in restoring the earth to its proper place in the universe, as they serve Jehovah in pure, clean worship.​—Rev. They failed to bring the true situation to his attention. Your eyes saw even the embryo of me, and in your book all its parts were down in writing, as regards the days when they were formed and there was not yet one among them.” Only the Creator knows the minds and hearts of men. You are not held captive by your country’s circumstances or your family’s history, because as a citizen of the kingdom of God, you can enjoy the protection and provision His kingdom provides. . Secondly, all these things that other people are chasing after are added to us if we put God first. 45:16. 16:7) God is concerned and interested in every one of us. In Matthew 6:33, the scripture talks about seeking God’s kingdom first and the benefits that follow this instruction. “● The total racial equality and deep sense of communion among people from all walks of life. How may we benefit by association now and during the “great tribulation”? Just as any ruler, before going into office, is concerned about those whom he will associate with in his rule, Jesus was selective in choosing his apostles, those who would become secondary foundations of the new government. Jesus Christ said: “Do not two sparrows sell for a coin of small value? Second, his rule is not deferred. 10 What hope, then, is there of seeing a truly just and altogether good government? As we make Jesus our Savior and allow Him to rule and reign in our lives from the inside out, we begin to understand what it means to be a citizen of heaven, and we start to see miraculous changes take place. (1 Tim. Tribal feuds and racial prejudices are things of the past. (b) Will their position be different in the resurrection? 18:2, 4) The heavenly kingdom benefits us in helping us to abandon false religion before God executes judgment on the entire Babylonish system. A few honest rulers tried to bring in sweeping reforms. 2. If they can ‘get away with it,’ many persons will flout the law, and in recent years these lawbreakers have at times included high government officials​—the very ones who should be first to obey the laws. Their unity has been real, and has testified to the reality of God’s kingdom as the only government that can unite peoples of all nations and races into a harmonious whole.​—Isa. No, the entire congregation of Israel was journeying with him, and as a congregation they passed through under Jehovah’s protection. 31. . What happens in one place affects people everywhere else. From Babylon came the mysteries and superstitions that characterize most of sectarian religion today, including that of apostate Christendom. 22:37-40) Are these commandments restrictive? One of the benefits of inclusion in the kingdom of God is knowledge of its secrets. (b) But what does the Bible say about the real hope for security? “As for Jehovah, he sees what the heart is.” (1 Sam. . O Jehovah, you already know it all. Most of these references occur in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.While the exact term is not found in the Old Testament, the existence of God’s Kingdom is expressed similarly in the Old Testament. 11:4-7; Gen. 4:4; 5:22; 6:9) Hebrews chapter eleven shows that they pleased God well by their faith. For he was awaiting the city having real foundations, the builder and maker of which city is God.” (Heb. Because some of the biggest and most vexing problems today involve the earth’s food production, pollution and the ecology. 15. A favorite phrase, ‘We always try to leave a building in better condition than we found it.’, “● The presence of hundreds of children of all ages sitting quietly through the long, long meetings while parents​—with Bibles and notebooks in hand—​soak up the . We want a better world, and that better world is found in God’s kingdom, which is why Jesus taught a lot about what it means to be in His kingdom. It is written: If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures (Job 36:11; see also Exodus 23:25). (a) To what extent have human governments benefited mankind? When asked why he spoke in parables, “He replied, ‘Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them’” (Matthew 13:11, NIV). 14. (b) Why is government necessary? What protection does the Kingdom teaching provide with regard to morals and health? For the most part, this has benefited people with a measure of security, protection and order and an opportunity to earn a livelihood. There’s nowhere else in the world where you find such wonderful loving people as at a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Our benefits of belonging to the kingdom of God is that we are provided protection and privileges which I believe are the promises of God. Cite any examples. (b) What provisions from God have aided man with regard to government? 48 There is an urgent need for all who seek God to flee out of today’s wicked “system of things,” and to stay out of it! The good ruler would have to be concerned with every individual and be interested in the personal welfare of everyone. (a) What must we conclude as to the benefits that God’s kingdom will provide? 2:44. (John 13:34, 35) To an inquirer, Jesus said: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. The kingdom refers to God’s rule; his governorship, his authority. This is vital to our survival. (a) How did Jesus show this to be a law of love? Is it not obvious that no human can possess all the knowledge and ability needed to accomplish this? Universal Church of the Kingdom of God benefits and perks, including insurance benefits, retirement benefits, and vacation policy. (Acts 17:26, 27). Surely there is every reason to thank Jehovah for this most loving provision. We invest into God’s Kingdom by devoting our personal energy, efforts, materials, and cash. First, he selected one people, the offspring of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob​—the nation of ancient Israel. The Bible shows that it is because, in the beginning, God did not purpose for humans to rule over other humans. . (Matt. 3:3, 4). (b) What stand are we encouraged to take, and with what glorious prospect in view? And because government by man is far better than anarchy, God has permitted earthly governments to operate for thousands of years. God’s Kingdom has a Ruler chosen by God. I do not "seek" something unless I 25. 21 What means did God use in laying such a foundation? (Mic. 15:3) Just how much does he care about people? God gave humans authority to rule earth when He created them, but they lost that authority when they disobeyed God and Satan assumed dominion over the earth, Genesis 1-3. If you’ve given your life to Christ, you already are a citizen of this kingdom—the kingdom of heaven. We see changes in our relationships, families, businesses, careers—changes we can’t quite explain. Why? (Numbers 23:8; see also Genesis 12:3; Numbers 23:20).Serving God and the interests of His Kingdom also entitles us to supernatural supplies, which delivers us from begging, lack and want. REALLY, should it not be the purpose of a government to work for the benefit of its subjects? When we give we become more like God, God gave His best. They debated whether they should risk going out to the meeting, but decided not to ‘forsake the assembling of themselves together.’ (Heb. Inner Kingdom of God: by David A.
