A Prayer

I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and
understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.
The  Voice  of  Jesus
This is my Son, my Chosen; Listen to Him!

Christian False Doctrines #33

The  Future Coming of the Kingdom of God
The False Teaching

From Billy Graham: The Bible says that lasting peace will only come when Christ returns to set up His Kingdom. Only then will all evil be banished and the world will know perfect peace.

The Catholic Catechism:2816, 2818 The kingdom will come in glory when Christ hands it over to his Father. . . .In the Lord's Prayer, "thy kingdom come" refers primarily to the final coming of the reign of God through Christ's return.

Southern Baptist: Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom may come and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age.

United Church of God: We trace our origins to the Church that Jesus founded in the early first century. We follow the same teachings, doctrines and practices established then. Our commission is to proclaim the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God to all the world as a witness and teach all nations to observe what Christ commanded.

The Orthodox Church in America:
The incarnation invites us to look beyond these burdens, to recognize that while we still live in a fallen world, the victorious Kingdom yet to come is already fully present to us in the Church, if only we respond to Christ's call: "Come... and I will give you rest."

Exposing the Error

As the erring voices in the left column show, Christians often believe in a yet coming kingdom, when  the Lord will make a paradise of earth. This is  known as Premillennialism, based on the erring Book of Revelations. Their view springs from love of life on earth, which locks them into the vain  hope of earthly glory in a yet coming kingdom. Yet our Lord condemns this love and all that harbor it. This hope is an earth bound treasure, but he commanded: Mt.6:20 (FNT) But be treasuring up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  Where is the heart?  This is the crucial question!  
Many stumble on this verse from
Mt.5:5 (RSV)
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.  This faulty translation (also in KJV) is from Psalm 37:11, whereby the ancient Israelites, if meek,  were to inherit the land of Canaan.  The correct word is land, not earth.
This hope of earthly glory is evil in that it contradicts the will of the Father, which Christians tend to believe is paradise on earth.  It is normal for them to see it this way from this petition of the Lord's Prayer: Mt.6:10 (FNT)
: Your kingdom come Your will come to pass as in heaven, so also on earth.

It is true -- the coming of the kingdom to earth is by the doing of the Father's will on earth.  The error arises from a radical misunderstanding of the will of the Father, due to not listening to the Voice of Jesus. They read the Word but, blinded by the love of life,  they do not hear or see and conclude that the will of the Father is an earthly paradise..
Declaring the Truth
Please listen with care to the Lord:
Jn.6:38 For I am come down from heaven not in order that I do my will, but the will of the [one] having sent me. 39 This is the will of the [one] having sent me, that of all he has given me I not lose [any] of it, but raise it up in the last day. 40 For this is the will of my father, that everyone beholding the son and believing in him have zoe-life eternal, and I will raise him up in the last day.

Mt.6:9 Therefore pray thusly:
Our father in the heavens,
Let your name be holy,
10 Your kingdom come
Your will come to pass
as in heaven, so also on earth.

Mt.26:39 And going forth [a] small ways he fell on his face praying and saying: My father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will but as you will.

jn.19:28 After this Jesus knowing that already everything is fulfilled, in order that the scripture be fulfilled, says: I thirst. 29 There lay [a] vessel full of sour wine; placing hyssop around [a] sponge full of sour wine they brought it to his mouth. 30 When therefore Jesus received the sour wine he said: It is finished, and having bowed his head he gave up his spirit.

One question for you: Why ask for the wine before saying,  It is finished? Now hear him: Lk.22:18 I will not drink of the product of the vine from now until the kingdom of God come.
Do you hear the preachers, or the Lord?
