Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew – Deut. 32:1-2

TEXT:   MATHEW 6: 9 -13

You are a king then! Said Pilate, Jesus answered “You are right in saying I am a King in fact for this reason I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth, everyone on the side of truth listens to me “John 18:37

What is a Kingdom? A Kingdom means the dominion or rule or realm of a king.

Jesus Christ as 1 Tim 6:15 as a king thus have a kingdom called the kingdom of Light. 1 Peter 2:9

1 Cor. 15:23-25, When God’s light shines upon an individual (heart) 2 Cor 4:66 such becomes light in darkness Mt. 5:14, Isaiah 60:1 thus God’s kingdom is said to have  come Isaiah 9:2, 1 Thes 5:5

Thy kingdom come Luke 17:20-21, Rev 21:3
What exactly is the Lord saying to us with this statement, lets examine it under the following 3 phases.

THE PAST: (a)The Garden of Eden (Gen 2:3) (b) God descending in various place (Temple, Terbenacle, Mountain) on earth. Exo 3:1-5, Exo 19-20, Heb 12:22 Luk 13:28 (c) Physically in human form through Jesus Christ – Emmanuel (God with us Matt. 1:23
Thus in the past God and His Kingdom had come but mankind had failed in establishing His will by totally enthroning His Kingdom. whenever His kingdom comes, His will is reveal

THE PRESENT: The kingdom is here on earth now in the entire world but through the Holy Spirit who now lives in every believer – John 17:21 that is why Jesus Christ said in Matt 16:28 that some of his disciple will see the kingdom come before death and it happened in Matt. 17:1-5, Acts 2.

THE FUTURE: As Christians we await the fully manifestation of God’s Kingdom which is the 2nd coming of Christ to establish God’s kingdom – Matt 16:27, Jn 14:1-4, Rev 21:1-5. We thus pray for the coming of Gods kingdom
Therefore Gods kingdom comes as  God manifest to reveal His will on earth and in every situations showing our submission for HIM

His Kingdom Come and Man’s Purpose on Earth
God created man in His own image and likeness ( as a spirit being) Gen 1:27, 1 Cor. 15:45, Jn 3:5-8 and gave us a kingdom to rule as His image Heb 12:28. So God created man and placed him on earth to take dominion of this planet (Cor. 1:26), Subdue it (Conquer it/ forcefully take charge). God wants men and women all over the earth to represents Him and His purpose in everywhere they live hence man’s purpose was to harvest souls for God by dismantling   the Kingdom of darkness.

Thy Kingdom come to who? To a unique group of people that are called to be saints (i) Those who are committed to God’s purpose – Not as they will but as He will (Matt 26:39) I Cor 1:2, 2 Those 1:10, Eph 1:1
(ii) Those that live a life of love for God and others James 2:5 (iii) Those that seek and follows Him as Children. Matt 19:13-14

Nature of the Kingdom:  Everlasting (Heb 12:28, Dan 4:3) Righteousness, Peace and Joy (Rom 14:17), Celestial (John 18:36), Soverign (Ps 103:19) Dan 4:17, Powerful a Glorious Ps 63:2, Rom 1:20, Rev 19:1

Conclusion: When we pray thy kingdom come we are simply saying let your dominion on rule manifest for your will to be done.
