INTRODUCTION

We are about to embark on one of God’s mysteries whereby He reveals the truth of two kingdoms – one whose eternal origin is in the third heaven and the other’s temporary origin was on the earth – that is almost beyond my natural human comprehension! BUT God has revealed to me that by praying for and using the spiritual supernatural “sound mind of Jesus Christ,” I can unravel this mystery.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. NKJV
1 Corinthians 2:16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. NKJV

Click on the “Bible Study” icon, then click on #4 – The MYSTERY of HAVING the SOUND MIND of CHRIST REVEALED. God the Holy Spirit using the Scriptures from the Bible will help you to know and understand with certainty the mystery of the origins of the eternal spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God/heaven” and the kingdom(s) of the world.

The terms Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven are interchangeable when applied to God’s Kingdom as evidenced by Christ’s usage of either term in His parables.
Matthew 19:23-24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” NKJV {Compare Matthew 5:3 to Luke 6:20.}

In PART I, I will put into perspective what the Bible has to share with us about the introduction in the time and place of history of these two kingdoms. We will see the introduction of the eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God complete with Its Throne(s), It King(s) on Its Throne (s), where It was first revealed, where It is now located, and the future of those who faithfully worship and serve God. I pray that as this study continues, you will be able to discern Its time and place and history in God’s foreknown and predestined plans. Beginning in the third heaven as “Eden, the Garden of God” and then on earth as the “Garden of Eden.” I believe these two Gardens are one and the same and represent the Kingdom of God at different times and places in history!
Ezekiel 28:13 “You {Lucifer/Satan} were in Eden, the garden of God {in the third heaven}; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. NASU
Genesis 2:15 And the Lord God {God the Son after He created Adam in the Land of Nod/”home of the “kingdom(s) of the world”} took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden {the Kingdom of God was physically on earth at that time} to tend and guard and keep it. AMP

We will come to know and understand that God did NOT create any of the nations or kingdoms of the world except for one. We will also see according to His plans His creation of the nation of Israel along with the formation of God’s Chosen People – the Jews who will survive in time and place in world history to be victorious over all of the other nations of the world at Christ’s Second Coming.
Jeremiah 31:7 For thus says the Lord: Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and shout for the head {greatest – TLB} of the nations {Israel} [on account of the chosen people, Israel]. Proclaim, praise, and say, The Lord has saved His people, the remnant of Israel! AMP
Deuteronomy 26:19 If you {Israel} do {keep all of His Commandments}, he {God} will make you greater than any other nation, allowing you to receive praise, honor, and renown {among the nations}; but to attain this honor and renown you must be a holy people to the Lord your God, as he requires.” TLB

We will also see the introduction of the temporary humanistic physical “kingdom(s) of the world” – with its “god” – Satan on his throne, his titles, when it was first revealed, how it came into being, where it is located, and the future of those sinful unrepentant humans who worship and serve this kingdom and its “god.” We will see a timeline of the foreknown and predestined plans that God has for the peoples of these kingdoms in their proper time and place in history.
Genesis 3:23 Therefore the Lord God sent him {Adam and Eve} forth from the Garden of Eden {kicked them out of the Kingdom of God now temporarily located on earth} to till the ground from which he was taken {in the Land of Nod}. AMP
Ephesians 2:2 In which at one time you {a sinner now saved by God’s Grace} walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air {Satan}. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit {Satan} that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God {i.e. all sinners}]. AMP

As a Christian using the spiritual supernatural “sound mind” of Christ, I believe the Bible and God the Holy Spirit will help us to assimilate the necessary information as to Who has the Sovereignty – total rule and authority over His creation, and Who has the Providence – wisdom, destiny, care, and guidance over not only the nations, kingdoms, and tribes of people but also designates who are the leaders of these governments in their proper time and place in history.
Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the {first and second} heavens and the {third} heaven of heavens belong to the Lord your God, the earth also, with all that is in it and on it. AMP
Psalms 89:11 The heavens are Yours {O Lord}, the earth also is Yours; the world and all that is in it, You have founded them. AMP
Jeremiah 27:5 I {the Lord} have made the earth, the men, and the beasts that are upon the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I give it to whomever it seems right and suitable to Me. AMP
Romans 13:1 Obey the government, for God is the one who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. TLB
2 Chronicles 20:6 And {Jehoshaphat} said, O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven? And do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You. AMP

As we continue this study, I pray that you will see and understand God’s eternal spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God” as It is revealed for “TODAY.” You will also see the establishing of the physical and secular “kingdom(s) of the world” as they are revealed for “TODAY.” I will reveal Lucifer’s {from now on his name is Satan} sin and his temporary objective and goal of blinding the eyes and understanding of sinners of knowing Jesus Christ, His message of the Gospel, and His Kingdom that allows him to the title of the “god of this world.”
Matthew 6:9-10, 13 {Jesus said} Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven {“TODAY”}.
13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one {Satan}. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever {“TODAY”}. Amen. AMP
2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan, who is the god of this evil {kingdom(s) of the} world, has made him {the unrepentant sinner} blind, unable to see the glorious light of the Gospel that is shining upon him or to understand the amazing message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is God. TLB

What is the connection between Satan’s deception and temptation and the need for God to deliver us from Satan and his temporary humanistic earthly kingdom thus ensuring us permanent residence in God’s eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom?
2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. NIV
Acts 26:16-18 {Jesus talking to Saul/Paul on the road to Damascus} Choosing you out [selecting you for Myself] and delivering you from among this [Jewish] people and the Gentiles to whom I am sending you– [Ezek 2:1,3.] 18 To open their eyes {unsaved sinners} that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me. [Isa 42:7,16.] AMP
Mark 13:31 Heaven and {kingdom[s] of the} earth will perish and pass away, but My words will not perish or pass away {as found in the Bible}. AMP
2 Peter 1:10-11 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. NASU

And in the study for PART II, I will put these two kingdoms into their perspective in the daily lives of us as Christians – Christ’s adopted children in New Testament times and places in history.
1 John 2:15-17 Stop loving this evil {kingdom(s) of the} world {and its god – Satan} and all that it offers you, for when you love these things you show that you do not really love God; 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. 17 And this world is fading away, and these evil, forbidden things will go with it, but whoever keeps doing the will of God will live forever. TLB
Colossians 3:1-2 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.] 2 And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. AMP {Why MUST we set our minds on the Kingdom of God?}
Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, NKJV
Luke 12:30-31 All mankind scratches for its daily bread, but your heavenly Father knows your needs. 31 He will always give you all you need from day to day if you will make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. TLB
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
John 1:12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him {Jesus Christ}, 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.] AMP

As you continue with this study, follow the progression of the Scriptures as they reveal the beginning and the end result of the physical kingdoms of the world and the world’s ruler – Satan in time and place in history over these nations. These events will conclude with the shaking that God will cause to bring about his incurred judgment and his impending removal of Satan from power upon Christ’s Second Coming.
Hebrews 12:27-29 Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken — that is, of that which has been created — in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue. [Ps 102:26.] 28 Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom {the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God} that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe; 29 For our God [is indeed] a consuming fire. [Deut 4:24.] AMP
John 12:31 {Jesus speaking} Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world {kingdom(s) – Satan} shall be cast out (expelled). AMP

These events are going to have to take place for Christ to join together His adopted children living in the humanistic secular “kingdom(s) of the world” with His spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God” which will reveal His work and His and His Father’s eternal Glory.
1 John 5:19 We know [positively] that we {adopted children} are of God, and the whole world {including ALL of the kingdoms and nations of the world except for Israel} [around us] is under the power of the evil one {Satan}. AMP
Revelation 11:15 The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)! [Ps 22:28; Dan 7:13, 14, 27.] AMP
John 17:1-5 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. NKJV
