Coming Kingdom of God
Daniel: “I saw in the night visions,
and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.
And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him;
his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14
Coming Kingdom of God – The Good News of the Gospel
Daniel reveals the mystery of the coming Kingdom of God. So what did he see and what did he reveal to the king of Babylon? What was the meaning of Nebuchadnezzar’s awesome vision?

The scriptures reveal answers to this mysterious prophecy, answers that may find their fulfillment in our day.
Coming Kingdom of God – The Beginning of the Gospel of the Kingdom
There is a great continuity in the message of scripture. Long before Christ appeared the hope of the Kingdom was prophesied by David. Malachi wrote of the messenger who would prepare the “way for the Lord.” Later Mark recorded the “beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ” proclaiming the message of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, by word and by action. Are we imitating Christ’s example and so fully following the message of the gospel of the Kingdom as faithful disciples? Learn a lesson from Jesus parable of the trees.
Coming Kingdom of God – The King’s Message about His Kingdom

So, what is the secret of the Kingdom that Christ revealed to his disciples, but not to the world? What is the nature of the realm of the King’s sovereign rule? What is the job the King wants us to do?
Coming Kingdom of God – The Kingdom of God will Grow
Jesus spoke of the farmer planting the seeds and the mystery of the seeds growing “spontaneously,” as an analogy of the Kingdom of God. What did he mean, and what are the implications for those disciples called to sow the seed? Daniel, Isaiah, and David all add to our understanding of how the Kingdom of God will grow, as both a physical and spiritual reality. Let the scriptures reveal the answers to this great marvel.
