The Kingdom of God

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your Kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. (Mt. 6:9-13)

For believers, the Lord’s Prayer is a perfect example how to pray to our Father. Jesus gave us this example in Matthew 6:9-13. Part of Jesus’ prayer is that one day God’s Kingdom will come to earth. And depending on how you read Scriptures, you may think God’s Kingdom is already here on earth. Today Chris is going to teach that if you look at the Scriptures in chronological order—Genesis to Revelation—you’ll actually see that God’s Kingdom is not here yet. But it is coming!

The belief that Jesus will one day bring the Kingdom of God to earth is called Premillennialism. We say often on the program that the Scriptures don’t have to be complicated. God wrote them for the common man. But isn’t it like man to take what God gives us and make it complicated? We’ll learn how the issue of the Kingdom doesn’t have to be complicated when you read the Scriptures as they were written. And as believers we have a wonderful story to tell the world about Redemption and a King that is coming again to rule and to reign but that also wants to save us from our sins today!

The Coming Kingdom

By Dr. Andrew M. Woods

Scriptures teaching on the Kingdom of God can be hard to grasp. Is the Kingdom here or is it yet to come? Understanding the Kingdom clearly as it is taught in God’s Word is essential for believers in Jesus.

If you would like to learn more about the Kingdom of God we recommend Andrew Woods’ book, The Coming Kingdom. Dr. Woods clarifies the biblical truth of God’s glorious Kingdom, while exalting the coming King and edifying the reader with its constant appeal to God’s Word.


Apples of Gold: Bow Before the Lord

Zvi visited a watchmaker shop in the ultra orthodox section of Jerusalem. Inside were men discussing how to get right with God. Zvi listened for awhile as they talked about their rabbis and their commentaries. He finally jumped into the conversation and began to ask questions. The men tried to cut the conversation short, but Zvi continued asking hard to answer questions, not to trap them, but to make them think. Listen how he shared the message of the Good News to these men.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
