CHAPTER 1 – WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT the REVEALED MYSTERY of the ETERNAL SPIRITUAL SUPERNATURAL KINGDOM of GOD and ITS HUMAN and ITS ANGEL INHABITANTS?

© We have to go back to before the beginning of time and place in history in Scripture…

As I study the Bible, God has shown me that we have to go back to BEFORE the beginning of time and place in history in Scripture to see the start of the principles of God that govern the eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God, the angels, mankind, and the kingdoms of the world. The eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God reveals the MYSTERY of the rule of an eternal Sovereign God over all of its creatures including man on the planet earth and all of the things including the angels and the stars of the entire universe. The word “eternal” pertains to something that is timeless i.e. it has no beginning nor end. Only God has the Sovereignty and Providence to fulfill and utilize the concept of “eternity!”
Psalms 90:2 Before the mountains were created, before the earth was formed, you are God without beginning or end. TLB
Daniel 4:3 How great are His signs! And how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion {Sovereignty over His creation} is from generation to generation. [Dan 7:13, 14; Luke 1:31-33.] AMP
Psalms 103:19-22 The Lord has established His throne {in His spiritual supernatural Kingdom} in the {third} heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all. 20 Bless the Lord, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word! 21 Bless the Lord, all you His hosts {which includes all of His angels and all of the stars in the universe}, You who serve Him, doing His will. 22 Bless the Lord, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion {creation}; Bless the Lord, O my soul! NASU
Revelation 1:8 I am {Jesus Christ/God the Son} the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty {God} (the Ruler of all). [Isa 9:6.] AMP
Isaiah 46:10 {God said} Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose, AMP
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He {God the Son} has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. AMP

God the Son/Jesus Christ is the very embodiment/personification of the eternal God and His spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God! It is because of God the Son/ Jesus Christ and His example that we learn about God. Wherever He is, there It is with Him whether in the third heaven as Eden the Garden of God or on the earth as the Garden of Eden or individually within His Saints or corporately within Christ’s Bride Church.
John 1:1-2 IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. [Isa 9:6.] 2 He {God the Son/Jesus Christ} was present originally with God. AMP
John 1:18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known]. [Prov 8:30.] AMP
1 Peter 2:21 For even to this {suffering} were you called [it is inseparable from your vocation]. For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you [His personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps. AMP
Ezekiel 28:13 You {Satan} were in Eden, the garden of God {Kingdom of God}; every precious stone was your covering {adornment}, the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and your settings and your sockets and engravings were wrought in gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared. [Gen 3:14,15; Isa 14:12-15; Matt 16:23.] AMP
Genesis 2:15 And the Lord God {God the Son} took the man {Adam} and put him in the Garden of Eden {Kingdom of God on earth at that time} to tend and guard and keep it. AMP
Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [{individually} in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you] {corporately as Christ’s Bride Church}. AMP

The Kingdom of God gives to those who are truly “Born Again” – Christ’s adopted children – righteousness, peace, joy, and God’s abundant blessing and life while the “kingdom of the world” and its “god” – Satan brings curses and eternal destruction to all unsaved sinners.
John 3:7-8 {Jesus speaking} Marvel not [do not be surprised, astonished] at My telling you, You must all be born anew (from above). 8The wind {Holy Spirit} blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. AMP
John 1:12-13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name– [Isa 56:5.] 13 Who owe their {new spiritual} birth neither to bloods {one’s so called ethnicity} nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse {sexual lust}] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father {wanting to have a family}], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP
Ephesians 1:5 For He {God the Father} foreordained us ({pre}destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—AMP
Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God {which is in you} is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. NKJV
John 10:10 The thief {Satan} comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy {ALL Make Believers and Unbelievers in his kingdom}. I {Jesus Christ and My Kingdom} came that they {My adopted children} may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). AMP

When a lost sinner is “Born Again,” they are immediately spiritually seated with God the Son/Jesus Christ on His Throne of His Kingdom with His Father in the third heaven.
Colossians 3:1 IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. [Ps 110:1.] AMP
Ephesians 2:6-7 And He {God the Father} raised us up together with Him {Jesus Christ} and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere {spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God} [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed one). 7 He {God the Father} did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus. AMP

The Kingdom of God is the eternal home for all “Born Again” created intelligence including angels and humans.
Revelation 19:10 Then I {John} fell prostrate at his feet {the angel} to worship (to pay divine honors) to him, but he [restrained me] and said, Refrain! [You must not do that!] I am [only] another servant with you and your brethren who have [accepted and hold] the testimony borne by Jesus. Worship God! For the substance (essence) of the truth revealed by Jesus is the spirit of all prophecy [the vital breath, the inspiration of all inspired preaching and interpretation of the divine will and purpose, including both mine and yours]. AMP
Revelation 22:8-9 And I, John, am he who heard and witnessed these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell prostrate before the feet of the messenger (angel) who showed them to me, to worship him. 9 But he said to me, Refrain! [You must not do that!] I am [only] a fellow servant along with yourself and with your brethren the prophets and with those who are mindful of and practice [the truths contained in] the messages of this book. Worship God! AMP {All Christians should be forth telling prophets – continually sharing their testimony for Christ with others!}

While we as Christians MUST physically live and work in the temporary humanistic secular “kingdom of the world,” we also MUST spiritually live and worship and serve God in and for the eternal spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God.” While these two kingdoms may appear to have similar characteristics and workings, they are diametrically opposed in their eternal purposes!
1 Corinthians 7:31 Those in frequent contact with the exciting things the world offers should make good use of their opportunities {continuously indulge them to their fullest} without stopping to enjoy them; for the world in its present form will soon be gone. TLB
1 John 2:16 for all these worldly things, these evil desires-the craze for sex, the ambition to buy everything that appeals to you, and the pride that comes from wealth and importance-these are not from God. They are from this evil world itself. TLB
2 Peter 1:11 Thus there will be richly and abundantly provided for you {as a child of God} entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. AMP

In the “kingdom of the world,” our physical life and work is to have an occupation, produce useful things, provide for and nurture our families i.e. the Christian husband and wife bearing fruit of their loins – their children and raising them in the confines of the physical world, but all the while bearing eternal fruit for Christ by introducing them to and nurturing them in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, Master, and living according to the Kingdom Of God in the world by the power of God the Holy Spirit through His Word. We are then to live and conduct our lives according to the Law of Christ which fulfills the Ten Commandments/God’s Law.
Psalms 127:4-5 As arrows are in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. 5 Happy, blessed, and fortunate is the man whose quiver is filled with them! They will not be put to shame when they speak with their adversaries [in gatherings] at the [city’s] gate. AMP
Acts 16:34 The jailer brought them {Paul and Silas} into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God — he and his whole family. NIV
Galatians 6:2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]. AMP
Matthew 22:37-40 And He {Jesus} replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deut 6:5.] 38 This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev 19:18.] 40 These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law {Ten Commandments} and the Prophets. AMP

In the “Kingdom of God,” our spiritual supernatural work is to bear eternal fruit – winning lost sinners to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and become spiritual children of God {brothers and sisters in Christ’s Bride Church} and to disciple/nurture them to live their physical and spiritual lives according to God’s Word and the principles of His Kingdom while living in the “kingdom(s) of the world.”
John 15:16 You did not choose Me {Jesus Christ}, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain {Meaning that YOU have eternal life with God and also the spirit of the sinner that you witnessed to who accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior now also has eternal life with God.}, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. NKJV
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise. NKJV
Daniel 12:3 And the teachers {of sanctification to those who are saved} and those who are wise {wins lost sinners to justification} shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) {through discipleship teaching and training} [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt 13:43.] AMP
