Yesterday we saw that the KOG is the sphere of influence where God rules. It existed in the Garden of Eden until the Fall of Man and his expulsion from the Garden. God promised, though, that it would be re-established on earth and the Jews eagerly awaited its inception. When Messiah appeared the first time and entered Jerusalem on the very day prophesied in Daniel 9:26, they thought the KOG was here at last. But His refusal to take the throne at that time left everyone disillusioned (especially Judas) and continuing to look for the KOG. Jesus, the Messiah, had taught with His coming, however, that the KOG would for a time be within man (Luke 17:20) and from Pentecost to the present, the KOG has been in the hearts of believers (Romans 14:17). However, before His ascension into heaven, Jesus assured His followers that the promised, earthly KOG was yet to come (Acts 1:6, 7).

There are two manifestations of the KOG yet to be seen – the one thousand year earthly rule of Messiah (the millennial kingdom described in Revelation 20:1-6) after the tribulation (Revelation 6:1-19:6), and the final Eternal State (Revelation 21:-22:5). Today we will look at one of the descriptions of the millennial kingdom from Micah 4.

NIV Micah 4:1 In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. 2 Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. 4 Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken. 5 All the nations may walk in the name of their gods; we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. 6 “In that day,” declares the LORD, “I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. 7 I will make the lame a remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever.
