A Description of the Kingdom of God, #23

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:40)

"The least of these my brethren."

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. (Isaiah 60:12)

The nations of the saved will pay tribute to the Kingdom of God.

And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. (Revelation 21:26)

The nations of the saved will be required to come up to Jerusalem and worship God, who then will be dwelling in and with His saints.

And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. (Zechariah 14:17)

Because the wicked will have been destroyed by the brightness of the Lord's coming, and the Spirit of God in the sons of God will have driven the spirit of evil from the earth, the nations of saved people left alive on the earth shall have a "will" to go up to Jerusalem to be blessed of the Lord.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:3)

Organization and care. The Kingdom of God will be organized perfectly. Nothing will remain ungoverned or uncared for.

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. (Daniel 2:44)

In the Kingdom, no individual will be overlooked or allowed to suffer harm. There will be no "sea," that is, no mass of persons who are tossed here and there like the waves of the ocean without regard for their individual identities.

Ungodly spirits and ungodly people no longer will be permitted to enter and abuse God's subjects, as happens today.

There will be nothing hurtful or destructive in all of the Kingdom. The knowledge of the Lord will cover the peoples of the earth so they no longer will be driven to and fro by every wind of doctrine. The whole world will be filled with the waters of God's Spirit.

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:9)

The spiritual and material environments. The Kingdom of God has both a spiritual and a material environment. The world today has both a spiritual and a material environment. However, the spiritual environment of the world today flows from rebellious angels and demons. Therefore the material environment is confused, corrupt, destructive—altogether under the curse of God.
