Kingdom Of Heaven


The kingdom of God is distinguished from the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 3:2) in 5 respects. The Kingdom Of God is universal, including all moral intelligences willingly subject to the will of God, whether angels, the Church, or saints of the past or future dispensations [Luke 13:28-29; Heb. 12:22-23]; while the Kingdom Of Heaven is Messianic, Mediatorial, and Davidic, and has for its object the establishment of the kingdom of God in the earth [Matt. 3:2; 1 Cor. 15:24-25].

How little we know of the heaven that lies beyond, of all that wonderful region, place, locality, where are unfallen angels and the spirits of just men made perfect. But Christ taught us to pray that the laws that govern them, the reason for the things they do, the master-passion of all their activity, may become the laws, the reason, and the master-passion governing the affairs of this world of ours. And it shall finally when Christ comes back to earth.
