Kingdom Transition

WEDNESDAY

NAU Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

NIV Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,

NKJ Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit

In its broadest sense, the Kingdom of God is that sphere of influence where God rules. At the present time Luke 17:20 and Romans 14:17 affirm a more localized sphere of influence within the hearts of those who have experienced His salvation as the Kingdom of God (KOG). However, while the KOG is being established in the hearts of some men through salvation (i.e. confidence in the Messiah’s work on the cross), Acts 1:6, 7 tell us that the localized KOG will one day expand to its prophetically promised earthly proportions (NAU Acts 1:6 So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority). This is later confirmed most prominently in the Book of Revelation when the beast and the false prophet (Rev 19:20) are seized along with Satan (Rev 20:2) and thrown into the abyss for one thousand years (Rev 20:3). At that time the Messiah and King will be the ruler over all the earth:

NAU Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.

NIV Zechariah 14:9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.

NKJ Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be — “The LORD is one,” And His name one.
