Kingdom (N.T.), Summary: See “Kingdom (O.T.)” Genesis 1:26-28. (See Scofield “Zechariah 12:8”) . Kingdom truth is developed in the N.T. in the following order:
(1) The promise of the kingdom to David and his seed, and described in the prophets 2 Samuel 7:8-17,; Zechariah 12:8 enters the N.T. absolutely unchanged. Luke 1:31-33. The King was born in Bethlehem; Matthew 2:1; Micah 5:2 of a virgin. ; Matthew 1:18-25; Isaiah 7:14.

(2) The kingdom announced as “at hand” (See Scofield “Matthew 4:17”) , by John the Baptist, by the King, and by the Twelve, was rejected by the Jews, first morally, See Scofield “Matthew 11:20”, and afterward officially Matthew 21:42,43 and the King, crowned with thorns, was crucified.

(3) In anticipation of His official rejection and crucifixion, the King revealed the “mysteries” of the kingdom of heaven, (See Scofield “Matthew 13:11”) to be fulfilled in the interval between His rejection and His return in glory Matthew 13:1-50.

(4) Afterward He announced His purpose to “build” His church Matthew 16:18 another “mystery” revealed through Paul which is being fulfilled contemporaneously with the mysteries of the kingdom. The “mysteries of the kingdom of heaven” and the “mystery” of the church Ephesians 3:9-11 occupy, historically, the same period, i.e, this present age.

(5) The mysteries of the kingdom will be brought to an end by “the harvest” Matthew 13:39-43,49,50 at the return of the King in glory, the church having previously been caught up to meet Him in the air 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17.

(6) Upon His return the King will restore the Davidic monarchy in His own person, re- gather dispersed Israel, establish His power over all the earth, and reign one thousand years Matthew 24:27-30; Luke 1:31-33; Acts 15:14-17; Revelation 20:1-10.

(7) The kingdom of heaven (See Scofield "Matthew 3:2") thus established under David”s divine Son, has for its object the restoration of the divine authority in the earth, which may be regarded as a revolted province of the great kingdom of God See Scofield “Matthew 6:33”. When this is done (1 Corinthians 14:24,25) the Son will deliver up the kingdom (of heaven), Matthew 3:2 to “God, even the Father,” that “God” (i.e. the triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) “may be all in all” (1 Corinthians 14:28). The eternal throne is that “of God, and of the Lamb” Revelation 22:1. The kingdom-age constitutes the seventh Dispensation, See Scofield “Ephesians 1:10”.

3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they with Christ a thousand years.
