The Power of the Kingdom of God

Queens Herald Church

Today’s Bible passage is from Acts 1:1-3.

In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is near—what exactly is the Kingdom of God? Identified are three options:

  • the kingdom of Israel
  • “our kingdom”
  • the Lordship of Jesus Christ
