The Introduction To The Kingdom

Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before the LORD. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house. 1 Samuel 10:25 KJV

There are several kinds of governments: Democracy, Mornachy, Oligarchy, Colonialist, Communist or Aristocratic etc. It depends on the parameters for naming. Its just curiosity to find out that God introduced Israel to a divine system that was already existing in heaven: the kingdom, which is divine monarchy. This is how a scholar in De Pree Center puts it: ” … the central message of Jesus was: “the kingdom of God has come near” (Mark 1:15). This kingdom was not a place where God reigns, but rather the reign of God itself – God’s rule, authority, and power. The reign of God, Jesus says, is at hand.” In Luke 17:20-21, Jesus tried to explain that the kingdom was within us and needed our response to it. He came to demonstrate how to operate in that kingdom. To help the people, Samuel wrote the details if the kingdom function in a book. They had never been led by a King on earth before, so they needed to understand the Kings schedules and privileges. Isn’t it surprising that sometimes we may appoint people into church offices without a training or attaching a schedule of duties to them? We just belief that they will pick up on the run. They won’t. This first model had a written schedule. David Norczyk in 2022, did a beautiful blog on the characteristics of the kingdom. We wish we could reproduce it here. Here is a few excerpts. ” Because the kingdom is spiritual, the warfare engaged in by God’s Spirit is not carnal terror nor force. King Jesus emphasized this fact before Pontius Pilate.
Because the kingdom of God is spiritual, the blessings of the kingdom are not money, power, nor material gains.
The Gospel of the kingdom is to be preached to all nations, and then the end will come.” Make sure you’re a part of this kingdom.
