The Kingdom of God. God rules the world!
In a series of 18 lectures, we consider God’s rule
and our role in seeing His will done in all of life on
earth as it is in heaven.

The Kingdom of God.

Jesus introduced the message he was bringing to the world by describing it as “The Gospel of the Kingdom” – the good news of God’s rule on earth. In the Kingdom, we see God’s plan for lost people and a spoiled planet. The Kingdom of God provides us with a frame of reference with which to understand all of life, a truly biblical worldview.

In this series of lectures, Brian Watts leads us through the teachings of the Bible concerning God’s rule on earth. We look at the big picture. Then we try to flesh that out by looking at some specific life issues where our goal is to see the kingdom come – to see how God’s will can be done on earth as it is in heaven.

These lectures were originally given at a Bible School in India in 2005. You will hear some of the sounds of India in the background, and some of the illustrations make reference to how these principles might be understood in that culture. But our goal is to see how to apply what the Bible says concerning the Kingdom of God in every culture and in all of life.

Here is an outline of the material we will cover:

Part 1 – The Sovereign and Subjects of the Kingdom
Session #1 The Sovereignty of God
Session #2 The Submission of Man

Part 2 – The Scope and Sequence of the Kingdom
Session #3 Ruling over Time - Eschatology

Part 3 – The Spheres and Specifics of the Kingdom
Session #5 The King and I - Self Government
