The Kingdom of Heaven is a gift that was prepared before the construct of time itself. It was prepared for a specific subset of people who would live at some time on Earth and could be described as “those who love Him”. The Bible says it is the Father’s pleasure to give the Kingdom to His children. So every time we receive the Kingdom we make the Father happy, we bring joy to HIS HEART. The Kingdom of Heaven is the Kingdom of light. We know quite a lot about it because Jesus couldn’t stop talking about it!

Other Kingdoms on Earth and in the Heavenlies

The other kingdoms spoken about in the Bible are one spiritual Kingdom of Darkness and Earth’s many physical kingdoms, which incidentally, are also under the jurisdiction of the spiritual Kingdom of Darkness. This is because dominion was given to Adam and he lost it to Satan when he fell.

The Kingdom of Darkness

Here are a few things we know about the Kingdom of Darkness from what the Bible says:

  • The Kingdom of Darkness wars with the Kingdom of Light.
  • The children of darkness are under the control of the Kingdom of Darkness
  • The works of the flesh are evidence of the control of the Kingdom of Darkness in a person
  • The people in darkness have seen a great light! That’s what causes them to immigrate to the Kingdom of Light
  • Satan and his Kingdom have been thoroughly and completely defeated by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the shedding of His precious Blood and His resurrection
  • The children of light defeat the Kingdom of Darkness by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony.
  • There is an army that fights for the Kingdom of Darkness and its members
