There are many questions as the time of the Antichrist comes closer. Was
the formation of the state of Israel in 1948 a fulfillment of the Old
Testament prophecies? What is the difference, if any, between the modern
state of Israel and the kingdom of Israel? There were two major
questions that the apostles asked Jesus. When will the Kingdom of Israel
be restored and when would Jesus come back?
week’s message we are also going to establish how the Kingdom of Heaven
(KOH), which is also synonymous with the Kingdom of God (KOG), is not
the same as the Kingdom of Israel (KOI). The KOH is a spiritual kingdom
that will last through eternity and KOI is an earthly kingdom that is
temporary, and will end when Christians have moved into the new creation
and the current universe is dissolved.
Kingdom of Israel (KOI) began under King Saul, continued with King David
and fell apart after King Solomon’s death. It was like a fire that
burned bright but did not have any longevity because it only lasted 122
years. There are prophecies about KOI found in the Old Testament and we
will examine some of them and the time period to which they belong.
will be a great historical study that will lay a foundation of what
humanity can expect in the future. Failure to discern biblical truth and
correctly place it on a timeline will only bring about confusion. God
certainly does not want His people to be confused and I look forward to
having you join me for this week’s sermon.
Print out the sermon outline and let's examine the
Scriptures together Sunday morning at 9:00 AM PST.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor John S. Torell
