PARSING THE ELEMENTS OF THE KINGDOM

THE PEOPLE WHICH SAT IN DARKNESS

In Matthew 4:16 there is a passage beginning with the phrase “The people which sat in darkness…” Throughout the scriptures darkness is a metaphorical term signifying ignorance or lack of understanding. In contrast, light and the term ‘walking in light’ are terms for a state of understanding. It is a place where we may dwell if we are willing to examine scripture, meditate upon its meanings and advance to a greater or more perfect state of understanding.

Often mankind wonders just exactly how Yahuwah used to speak to His prophets. We all know He sometime spoke to them in dreams. In the case of Adam, we suppose that He spoke directly as a man would speak to a man. Primarily, we believe, He taught them through inspiration. This inspiration was often gleaned from the study of the physical world in which they dwelled.

Doctrine, as it is called, is a term Bible students use as a term for a principal, generally accepted by those with which they agree, to be absolute truth. Any true doctrine expressed by the New Scriptures (those between the little blank page in the middle of your Bible and ending at the maps) can be set forth as truth only if it can be found as a principal taught in the Old Scriptures (those preceding the little blank page.) Just as we are taught that any condemned person must have his guilt established by two or more witnesses, any doctrine must be supported by both the witness of the Old Scriptures and the New. In fact, most doctrines have their very roots in the book of Genesis, the book of beginnings. So it is with the doctrine of the kingdom of heaven.

Mankind, just as the day, began in darkness. As with the day, light entered a little at a time. In the beginning, there was a taste of what would through time grow into a greater understanding. The first suggestion of a kingdom, as with any doctrine, was small and seemingly insignificant at first. Then as time progressed, God ever patient and longsuffering, with mankind, would reveal a bit more of His truth. It would seem as we get ever closer to what we believe to be the end of time as we know it, we would clearly understand the scriptures and exactly what God has sought to teach us throughout time. Still many things remain hidden to us until they are fully revealed and shine directly into our face. Then and only then the ‘aha’ moment arrives and says ‘this is that of which the prophets spoke!’

The first vestiges of the kingdom are expressed in the very first chapter of the Bible. While they are not openly called the elements of, or the principal of, a kingdom, the elements are there.

THE KING

The very first verse in the Holy Scriptures supposes the existence of a being most of creation calls God. The word God is not a name. It is a descriptive term which designates the subject of that term to be the superior being of all creation regardless of who you understand that being to be. The Hebrew word, translated God in the King James Version of the Bible is Elohiym.

page1image28104

Elohiym is a plural word indicating more than one member of a group or family later recognized singularly as Yahuwah or in some cases shortened to Yah. (See the article Hallelu-who? by this author) The account given by the KJV of the Scriptures testifies of creation in a sequence of events that has later been substantiated by science to be accurate and necessary in its order for life to have survived.

Yet throughout the scriptures we find neither commandment, nor instruction by the prophets, mandating referring to Yahuwah as
king. Certainly there is no preoccupation by either
the God of creation, or his prophets with calling

Yahuwah king. In fact, it is interesting to note the
closest thing to Him actually being referred to as
king, is the account given in the book of I Samuel,
chapter eight. In the account recorded there Israel
chooses to reject the reign of Yahuwah over their nation. Still by right of both design and creation, the very architect of creation itself entitles the artist to the right of king. The scriptures constantly reinforce this truth by showing the sovereignty, might and authority of Yahuwah. To say otherwise would be to imply that He is a usurper riding rough shod over the realm and authority of another.

THE REALM

In the Genesis account of creation, having understood the right of the king, we find the initial concept of the other elements of the kingdom. On the third day earth, being the dominion or realm, was created. On the sixth day of creation, the subjects were created, both male and female. (Gen 1:26) Regardless of whether or not this man was one in the same as the man addressed in the second chapter of Genesis, we find a couple of things worthy of note when we look at the scriptures.

THE SUBJECTS

Firstly, the man ‘created’ on day six of creation was in the image of the Elohiym that created him. Image means image. It means this man resembled the God (Elohiym) that created him. Literally, it means this man was an idol or representation of God. This man looked like, or had the attributes, of those things God wishes us to understand Him to be. Now we know God is a spirit, (John 4:24) and in the literal sense spirits have no hands, ears, facial features, etc. They are ethereal beings without physical substance as we know it. Yet this King, who created the subjects on the sixth day, wished the image to express attributes the creator enjoyed. This creator not actually having an ear made of flesh, created an ear on the ‘idol’ to give expression and knowledge to the ‘created’ that the said creator had the ability to hear man’s cries. He put within the face of man, an eye to show that the King he served had the ability to see! Consider the following:

“The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, Yahuwah hath made even both of them.” – Prov 20:12 “He that planted the ear shall he not hear? he that formed the eye shall he not see?” Ps 94:9 “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.” Job 42:5

Certainly we miss the point if we believe God created an ear on man to show that He has a physical ear. That’s earthly! It is the heavenly counterpart He wishes us to see and understand! It

page2image29024 page2image29616 page2image30040 page2image30800

“And Yahuwah said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.” – I Sam 8:7

page2image33856

is about His abilities and not His looks. Again this is but another illustration of how all creation testifies and speaks to the essence and being of the Almighty.

THE LAW

Secondly, considering the ‘man’ (subject) God created, we find the creation of ‘law’. While this first expression of law is not codified like the ‘book of the law’ given later in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, it certainly is the first example of law and instruction issued from the king of the realm to the subject of the realm. It is also a clear allocation of authority and definition of man’s role in the parameters of God’s kingdom. It is man’s authority over the kingdom with the express approval of the king creator of the same.

At this point in time, the law of the kingdom was simple. It was direct and consisted of a few direct commands from God to man.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall

be for meat.

And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.” – Gen 1:28-30

Finally, we find the man of Genesis 1 given a realm or dominion of his own. This realm encompassed the entire world and the creation living within it.

So at this early point in time, we already see the work of the Almighty. Slowly and simply the suggestion of things yet to come are expressed in the creation week. His creation of the realm and subjects are made manifest as well as the simplified expression of His laws and what He wishes His kingdom to be. The goal is peace, joy, tranquility and life in abundance. The laws, simple and forthright; multiply, replenish and subdue. Restrictions are non-existent, until later found to be necessary. The subjects of the benevolent monarchy are blessed and given everything possibly needed for their joy and survival. So we find from the very first week of creation, all elements necessary for the existence of a kingdom.

THE KINGDOM BEGINNINGS

The beginning of man’s sojourn upon earth is similar to kindergarten in which we enroll our children. The lessons are simple. The commands are few and forthright. The basics are taught and it is mankind’s responsibility to contemplate the things God has given. It is his duty to understand the basics and obey the laws. In the beginning, man as a child, is given the leeway and authority to govern and take dominion over creation as he sees fit. From that day the

page3image26960

interaction between Yahuwah and his surrogate, mankind, begins to play out in a great theme destined to fulfill the dreams of all creation throughout the ages. It is the Shangri La of Hilton; it is the Valhalla of Norse mythology; and the Kingdom of heaven to the aware Israelite Christian.

The Bible story we will now begin to explore will show the tragedy of failure and hope of the future. It will reveal the interaction of mankind and the Almighty. It will show how Yahuwah attempts to give man the essence of wisdom he needs to succeed in his dominion. As the education of mankind progresses, the laws are expanded upon. The secrets of success are revealed to him. Inherent in man’s nature, just as with our own children, he often rebels and fails. At times they are punished and corrected and at others led, blessed are rewarded. Later Yahuwah, through the scriptures, expands upon the ideals and principals of the kingdom. Like a light that moves down a path, we find the scriptures continually giving us more and more clues to what we should expect in the ultimate restoration of all things, the blessing of His servants and the wedding gift to His Son and his Son’s bride.
