The kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven was first expressed by Jesus. But he didn’t give it a precise meaning. He expressed it in different parabolas if one catches its meaning according to one parable one can’t make it goes in compromise with another. When he says the kingdom of God is within, you understand it as something related to the spiritual progress which enables man to gain the power and authority of God. But when you know he says the kingdom of God is yeast a woman hid in three parts of flour you find it difficult to explain.
In the beginning of my experience, after reading the bible, twice I discovered a thread that can interpret the whole holy history. By knowing that the wish of the human has some unseen power to affect the circumstances I tried to apply it on the holy history. The promises of God, the prophecies, and the prayers take part in the same meaning of the wish and desire.
In the period of Abraham God promised him and his descendants to have a nation from River Nile to River Euphrates. The promise was repeated for Isaac then Jacob. I noticed that that promise started to succeed when we saw the Jews appear in relation with the Nile in the time of Joseph who became the prime minister of Egypt and enabled his tribe to settle safely at the Nile.
Then Moses started the move to make the country of Israel which became famous in the time of King Solomon. By making Israel the promise succeeded partially. Then the Jews entered a relation with the River Euphrates when the king of Babylon captured them and they lived at the Euphrates. After a short period they returned back to the origin. The matter seemed as a sine wave with positive peak at the River Nile and with negative peak at the River Euphrates.
The power of God appeared in the time of Joseph who represents the positive peak, and it appeared with Daniel, Sedrak, Meshak, and Abednego who represented the negative peak. And it appeared in the origin by different prophets.
Long period passed after that and the promise didn’t come true perfectly. Then Jesus incarnated in Israel and lived as one of them knowing what busied their minds and hoped what they hoped. Why didn’t the promise come true? Knowing the reasons behind the failure Jesus started the correction which appeared in what he did in his mission. Old Testament taught his people that any disobedience to God is sin that prevents God from rewarding by success. Sin requires punishment. Most people of the Old Testament were unable to please God so the situation was bad for them and the occupation of their land was part of the punishment.
As Jesus knew that he was Yahweh who stated the holy orders of the Old Testament he knew that he had the right to change his old orders to enable his people to deserve the promise of the Nile and Euphrates. He stressed the forgiveness and the no need to the offers of slaughters to God. And he was to hide the aim of his teachings to grant the seriousness in following him. He chose the expression Kingdom of God instead of the promise of Nile and Euphrates.
He knew that he would ascend to heaven again and become like Yahweh as a leader for his followers. So, he wanted them to have faith in him, that he was able to enable them to succeed in whatever they asked him, even when they were unable to see him. The easiness of the teachings of the New Testament opened the door for all who loved Jesus and had faith in him to do the promised kingdom of God.
By spreading the New Teaching of Christ heaven gathered a lot of spirits having the new promise. All deserved to make the promise come true. In the due time the Islamic Nation appeared to exceed the borders of Nile and Euphrates and Reached China in East and Spain in West. Since the New Testament went to other nations rather than Israel the promised kingdom became not local. Remember that Jesus said to his people the Jews, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and it will be given to another nation that can do its fruits.
Islam adopted the same stories of the bible and contained many prophecies for the future to come. This Islamic nation resembled Israel. Remember that God said to the Pharaoh, Israel is my first born son. It makes us know that God intended to get more sons like Israel. Until now we can know that God has three sons, Israel Nation, Christian Nation, and Islamic Nation. So although the three believe that the coming of Christ will be in their own land God is free to descend the Christ in any nation of them as three brothers.
Returning to the idea of the power of the promise we can understand that now the power comes from the three nations to make the kingdom come true all over the globe. All necessary tools of making this kingdom are in the hand of the humankind. Alas it can’t be done without considering the Christ, the cause who promised it and helped from behind the veil to get all tools. The UN was made as a primary preparation for it. The famous artists, scientists, politicians and players whose characters go across all boundaries were made to help the inter-nationality. The instruments of communications and transportation and means of spreading the news made the globe as a small village. What do people need then to do it?
In the end I see that humanity is in the same situation when Jesus came to Israel and found out that the promise of the Nile and Euphrates was not able to come true. So I say to myself, one day in the future it will come true and the globe will face the cosmos as one unit.
