At its most basic definition, kingdom theology is simply the area of theology that studies the Kingdom of God. In that sense kingdom theology is a legitimate and beneficial part of theology as a wh...
The question is: "What is kingdom theology?" Notice what Jesus said: "Luke 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent." Jesus realized his commission was the preach the good news about the soon coming Kingdom of God, the one that had been predicted to come by all the prophets of old. That preaching of the Kingdom of God was what took up his entire ministry. Everything he did was to announce the Kingdom of God. He knew that as the Messiah the King of Israel he at his return would defeat all the nations that would come up against Jerusalem at the last days and take his place seated on the throne of David in Zion [Jerusalem] and from there rule over the physical nation of Israel - made up of the surviving remnant [Zech 12:-14"] and rule over all the nations as King of kings and Lord of lord. The old testament writings say when that happens all the nation will sent representatives up to Jerusalem to keep the Feast of Tabernacles [temporary booths] and pay homage to the Messiah Yehoshua [Jesus]. At that time we who have been faithful including all those down through the ages back to Adam will have been resurrected and have immortal glorified bodies just like what Jesus now has: 1John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. At that time we shall have a part in the Theocratic Government of God under the rulership of Yehoshua - Jesus. We will co-rule with him over all the nations - and co-inherit all things in him and with him. What I have written is true kingdom theology and what amazes me is that one never ever hears it being preached to-day when that is all Jesus and Paul talked about.. Acts 28:30-31 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. Jesus said our individual commission is to preach the message that he himself brought first to Israel [to the Jew first] and then to the world [to the Gentiles]... why is that not being done. Notice what it says about Paul, it says he was: 1. Preaching the kingdom of God, and 2. teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ So it isn't just about the death and resurrection of the lord Jesus that needs to be preached but the reason he did have to die as a sin offering sacrifice and be resurrected to sit at the right hand of his God and his Father until when he will be sent down to sit upon the throne of David at Zion ruling over the nation of Israel and all the nation with us! The Kingdom message that Jesus brought need to be proclaimed all over the world and then and only then will the end come! Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Notice: 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ [the good news about the coming Kingdom of God], who is the image of God, should shine unto them. Do we realize that the gospel message that the 70 sent out by the lord Jesus during his ministry preached the gospel and it was about the coming Kingdom of God, and later it included the name of Jesus and all of what thatr name involves, as we see in: Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus the anointed one, they were baptized, both men and women. Notice: Luke 8: 11-12:... The seed is the word of God - the good news about the Kingdom. Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word - about the Kingdom out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. Satan is successful for now that word is not being preached!
The Kingdom Theology; The efforts and walks of faithful Christians are to be found worthy, for the eternal kingdom of God, and therefore when the teaching is centered wholly on that aspect of life and Christian spiritual growth, it is considered as "Kingdom Theology". Matthew 13:24, "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field". Christian theology is the study of Christian belief and practice, using biblical exegesis, rational analysis, and argument to discuss facts about scriptures and encourages spiritual development in Christianity. And which can be a useful tool in,. - the understanding of Christian tenets,. - resources for Christian's spiritual growth. - defend Christianity against objections and criticism,. - assist in the teaching and propagation of Christianity, Matthew 13: 44-46, - The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. Kingdom theology is similar to discipleship, which is the process of teaching and growth in the Lord, and by which disciples are equipped by the holy spirit to overcome the pressures and trials of the world, and becomes faithful and strong believers. 1 Peter 3:15, "but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
When we repent then in obedience to his command we are baptised and when we walked in the water we walked into the death of self and when we came up out of the water we did so as reconciled to our God and Father, as new creations in His anointed one, Jesus. As members of the Israel of God, of God's household, of the congregation of God, the called-out Assembly of God and recognized as sons of the kingdom of God. As believers we are now in the kingdom of God in that we are subject of that Kingdom and as such walk in committed obedience to the one whom God has put in charge as His agent, the lord Jesus. When we obey the words that God gave to the lord Jesus to give to us we honor our God and Father. So we are now in the kingdom of God under the rulership of our God and Father and His uniquely begotten son, His anointed one, Jesus. When we are resurrected at the return of Jesus we will take part in the Theocratic Government he will establish when he takes his place on the throne of David at Zion as King of Israel and King of kings and Lord of lords of all the nations who will come up to worship him at Zion during the 1,000 years rule: Zech:14 all. We will at that time co-rule with him as member of the Kingdom of God which will be headquartered at Zion, in Israel. What an amazing future we have in waiting for us. However, now we are to take the message of the coming Kingdom of God to the nations until he comes!
