    An Everlasting Government Ruled By The King Of Kings/Our Lord Jesus Christ:

    And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. Revelation 11:15

    For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans Fourteen:17

    Principles of Christian Liberty:

    Romans Fourteen:1-23

    1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

    2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

    3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

    4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

    5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

    6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

    7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

    8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

    9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

    10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

    11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

    12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

    14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

    15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

    16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

    17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

    18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

    19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

    20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

    21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

    22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

    23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

    His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will serve and obey him. Daniel Seven:27

    Kingdom of God

    Kingdom of God, also called Kingdom Of Heaven, in Christianity, the spiritual realm over which God reigns as king, or the fulfillment on Earth of God’s will. The phrase occurs frequently in the New Testament, primarily used by Jesus Christ in the first three Gospels.

    What did Jesus say about the Kingdom of God:

    Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

    A lot of Christians seem to ignore this Romans 14 passage about Christian liberty...

    Amen, I was thinking that, The Principles of Christian Liberty would set about verse 17 of that chapter, but what are your thoughts ?

    Inherent in Fundamentalism sometimes is the sweeping assumption that my preferred customs and culture should be adopted by everyone else and so I am supposedly free to, and supposedly divinely sanctioned to, give everyone else a hard time who doesn't follow my customs.

    A while ago I even heard a Christian say: "I am a cultural imperialist". (In other words, seemingly invoking national or religious arguments to assert one's supposed superiority towards those who are different.)

    Humility and patience all round are so often crucial in defusing strife and conflict.

    In my thinking doing pleasing in His sight counts.

    It is important to note that this saying applies only to the Church Age.

    After the Second Coming of Christ there will be a literal, visible, tangible, material AND spiritual Kingdom of God on earth, with Christ as King of kings. Too many Christians either ignore this or are ignorant of it. We could go into much detail, but this is a critical component of the eternal Kingdom of God on earth.

    Are you talking about to begin with ?

    New Heaven and Earth Are Created: Rev. 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

    New Jerusalem Descends: Rev. 21: 2-8, New Jerusalem Is Described: Rev. 21: 9-22:5, Conclusion: Rev. 22:6-21

    Revelation Chapters 21-22 ,

    and Bodies of the Resurrected Dead: 1 Cor.15:35-50, Bodies of the Translated Living: 1 Cor.15:51-58

    1 Corinthians 15:35-58

    If not, then what are the details ? if you don't mind me asking.

    Love always, Walter

    Matthew 24 -- the gathering of the elect Jews to Israel
    Matthew 25 -- the judgment of the nations
    Revelation 20 -- The Millennium (see Ezekiel for details)
    More details will be found in all the Prophets.

    But Daniel sums it up thus:
    Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,
    [1] to finish the transgression,
    [2] and to make an end of sins,
    [3] and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
    [4] and to bring in everlasting righteousness,
    [5] and to seal up the vision and prophecy,
    [6] and to anoint the most Holy. (Daniel 9:24)

    I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of Man [Christ] came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of Days [the Father], and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all [1] people, [2] nations, and [3] languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (Dan 7:13,14)

    And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Rev 11:15)

    Odd, God seems to offer a family and a relationship, but most of the time we seem to want a government and to be ruled.

    The children of God are indeed within the family of God, which includes relationship within that family. God is the Father, Christ is our Brother, and all the true children of God are brothers and sisters in Christ. But that does not include all of humanity. Only those who have been born of the Spirit and washed in the blood of the Lamb are within this family.

    However that does NOT preclude the Kingdom of God, with Christ as King and all nations, kingdoms, and peoples under His divine authority. The Bible has numerous passages which speak of this.
