✿ The kingdom of God universal--God is the Supreme Moral Governor of the universe, and everything in harmony with Him (Job 38:1-22; Dan. 4:17,25,32,35). ✿ Lucifer, earth’s original ruler, thinks he can get other angelic beings to cooperate to dethrone God so that he can become the exalted supreme ruler of the universe (Isa. 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:11-17; 1Tim. 3:6). "I will exalt my throne above the stars of God" (Isa. 14:13). This statement not only proves that Lucifer's plan was to invade heaven, dethrone God, and become the supreme ruler of all creations, but it shows that he already was a ruler. If he had a throne he had a kingdom and he himself was a king; he had subjects to rule over and there must have been a location for the kingdom. Who were his subjects? The men like beings such as Neanderthals, Homosapiens; and his kingdom was located on the earth. "I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north" (Isa. 14:13). Lucifer was not satisfied to sit on his own throne, but wanted to sit also on God's throne to be worshiped as the Supreme Sovereign of all creations. This gives the location or direction of heaven--north of the earth--and reveals the fact that there is a congregation of saints or holy beings who gather to worship God. In Ps. 75:6-7 it speaks of promotion coming, not from the east, west, or south, but from the Lord; so, according to this also, the Lord and heaven are in the north. ✿ In the Pentateuch, God is the supreme and only King. The priest is His servant, prevented by the law from having earthly inheritance or secular power. The ruler of Israel is God’s vice-regent, obliged to rule according to His laws which are not to be changed, added to, or taken from. Despotism and priestcraft revealed in other so-called sacred writings would be impossible where the laws of the Pentateuch were obeyed. Its rites and ceremonies are dignified and impressive, free from the mysteries, divination, witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment, omens, and cruel and licentious practices which make pagan rites an abomination to God. The ceremonies of the Pentateuch point to the holiness of God, the sinfulness of man, the necessity of atonement, and the moral state to which the Creator has promised to raise fallen man. The punishments of the five books are just, and their rewards inspire grateful obedience--evidence of those who love God with all their heart, soul, and might (Dt. 6:5).
Read Romans 9, Isa. 45 and other places where we are asked by God, in essence, 'Will you question Me?" In other words, will puny, mortal, sinful man question the sovereign God of the universe? No man, no power, no angel, no demon has the ability or right to judge, question or contradict God. Every being, spiritual or flesh is under God's supreme control. God judges Himself.
