“The time is FULFILLED, and the kingdom of God is AT HAND. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:15
These words of Jesus are in fulfillment of Daniel 2:44: “And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”
This kingdom is NOW in the earth. If you are a Christian, you ARE in this kingdom (Col. 1:13). This kingdom will grow to fill the earth with grace and righteousness as in Psalm 22:27-31; Psalm 67; Psalm 72.
TODAY Jesus sits at God’s right hand. And what is he doing there? He waits there until his enemies are subdued (Psalm 110; Hebrews 10:12).
“And the God of peace will crush Satan under YOUR feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.” Romans 16:20
Since this is so, how shall we then live?
