The Kingdom of God Viv Grigg Nov 2004, rev Mar 2007 Jesus came preaching What is the Kingdom of God? What are the Seven Parables of the Kingdom?
IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THE KING INTERVENES THE KING INVADES HISTORY AS A SUFFERING SERVANT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ETERNAL, UNCHANGING (Psa 145:11-13) IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. ADAM NOAH ABRAHAM MOSES etc. DAVID IN EACH INTERVENTION THE KINGDOM PRINCIPLES ARE MADE KNOWN: SPIRITUAL, ECONOMIC, SOCIAL THROUGH GOD'S DEALINGS WITH ISRAEL IN THE LIVES OF: COMMUNITIES OF THE KING MANIFEST KINGDOM SPIRITUALITY, ECONOMICS, SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS COVENANTS OF MERCY AND JUDGEMENT IN THE LAST DAYS WILL BE THE TRIUMPHAL COMING AS THE KING OF KINGS AND AS JUDGE OF ALL THE KINGDOM WILL RULE THE KINGDOMS OF THIS EARTH It is a Kingdom Present…. And Not Yet!
Covenants - Foundations of Trust What happens when a society cannot trust each other? 7 Covenants of the scripture reflect the Kingdom – Noah (Gen 9:8-17), Abraham (2) (Gen 15:9-21; Gen 17), Sinai (Ex 19-24), Phinehas (Num 25:10-13), David (2 Sam 7:5-16), New Covenant (Jer 31-34) All covenants involve: God-Human Society Land God Humanity Land
