Kingdom of God, God’s Kingdom
Did you ever pray for God’s Kingdom to come? Millions have. Because Jesus Christ told his followers to pray for God’s Kingdom.
“Thy Kingdom Come”. A Prayer repeated by Millions
We can read in God’s word, the Bible:
“You must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10 Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.”” (The Bible, Matthew 6:9, 10)
What is God’s Kingdom?
Did You ever asked yourself: What is God’s Kingdom? We can find the answer in the Bible, God’s word.
God’s Kingdom is a real government in heaven. Like the name already indicate.
We can read in God’s word, the Bible: “(Daniel 2:44) “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever”.
According to this Bible prophecy, Jehovah God has set up this Kingdom (of God), or government. And we could read in this Bible verse, that this government, or Kingdom of God, will replace all human rule. Also we could read, that “it alone will stand forever”.
This is the government (Kingdom) for which millions have been praying (Matthew 6:9, 10).
So God’s Kingdom is a real government. In heaven. Not anything else. And God’s Kingdom will replace all human governments. This will happen soon. Because prophecy in the Bible indicates that we are living in the “the last days” (Matthew 24:3-14 and 2 Timothy 3:1-5).
The King of God’s Kingdom
In the Bible we can read, that the King of God’s Kingdom would be chosen by God (Psalm 2:6, 8). The King of God’s Kingdom would be an heir of King David. An Israelite king of the past (Isaiah 9:6, 7). Born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2, 4). He would be rejected by men and executed (Isaiah 53:3, 5). The King of God’s Kingdom would be resurrected from the dead. What do you think? What person can fit this description?
Only one person in all human history fit the description of an ideal ruler. An angel told Mary, the mother of Jesus: “God will give him the throne of David his father,… And there will be no end to his Kingdom.” (Luke 1:31-33). All prophecies in the Bible about the ruler of God’s Kingdom have a fulfillment in Jesus Christ. What Jesus did, when he was on earth, shows that Jesus Christ is an ideal ruler.
Almighty God Jehovah chose Jesus Christ as King of God’s Kingdom in heaven. So God’s Kingdom is a heavenly government ruled by Jesus Christ as King (Isaiah 9:6, 7; Matthew 5:3; Luke 1:31-33).
What God’s Kingdom has already done
Jesus Christ gave a sign, that provides visible proof, that God’s Kingdom’s is ruling in heaven. For example prophecies like pestilences and many more. And:
Preaching of the good news of the Kingdom in all the inhabited earth
Jesus Christ prophesied: (Matthew 24:14) And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come”. Jehovah’s Witnesses fulfill this prophecy of Jesus Christ. With their preaching of the good news of the kingdom in all the inhabited earth. For a witness to all the nations. Jehovah’s Witnesses normally spend every year more than 2 billion hours to spread the messages of the Bible. In more than thousand languages. All around the world.
The fulfillment of this prophecy from Jesus Christ show also, that we are living in the last days. Shortly before Jehovah God steps in. To bring what he promised.

And millions learned to improve their family life and to benefit themselves now. And to learn to become the kind of people God wants as subjects of God’s Kingdom.

Many people, who died in the past, will come back to life (Acts 24:15). Like Jesus Christ also foretold and you and will I and you and you is is you and you will are in an and here I will and will I (John 5:28, 29) “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
