There is a kingdom prophesied and promised in Scripture.
What is that kingdom and what does it entail? This study examines the passages of the Bible that answer those questions revealing there to be a yet future, physical, literal, earthly kingdom that will be a thousand years in duration. The Bible indicates that after the coming seven year Tribulation and prior to its inauguration Jesus Christ will have returned to earth and once it is established, He will take His seat on the throne to rule as King.
A brief history of the amillennial and postmillennial views of the kingdom is included in the study.
Of necessary inclusion are the biblical reasons that this kingdom cannot, and is not, present on the earth today. Foundational is an understanding of the unconditional and eternal promises of a land, seed and blessing made by God to Abraham.
An accurate understanding of the details of this kingdom are of critical importance because they influence not only future hope, but also one's worldview of this present life, society, culture and regard for the nation of Israel.
