Christianity was supposed to be about becoming like Jesus. We went in the wrong direction.

Chapter 14 - The Kingdom Today

For the last 2,000 years there has been no nation of Israel or kingdom of God on earth. Many orthodox Jews resisted the establishment of the political entity of the nation of Israel in 1948 because they felt that only the Messiah should do so. Today even those who live in the nation of Israel would acknowledge that they are not the promised kingdom of God.

There are a number of promises and prophecies for Israel that have not yet been fulfilled. Even the war described in Ezekiel 38 has not yet taken place. Some attempt to resolve this with a doctrine that says that all has been fulfilled in Christ. While succinct, it fails to explain the specific nature of many of the promises and the restoration of a remnant of Israel described in the bible.

The prayer, 'thy kingdom come' implies that there is a kingdom, that it is elsewhere, and that it is possible that it can come here. We know that Jesus is the king, that he is not on earth at present, and that he will come. Christians today are placed into the "body of Christ", which can be taken to mean that we are in his kingdom even thought the actual physical kingdom will wait until the earth experiences tribulations such as never been seen.

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. - Matthew 24:21
