The Kingdom of God

 Question: What is the kingdom of God and when was it organized?

 Answer: The Children of Israel must have enjoyed a welcome respite from their difficult and tiring journey through the wilderness when they encamped before Mount Sinai. Upon command Moses went up into the mount to converse with God, who said to him: "...Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself." (Exodus 19:3-4)

 This message was addressed to the House of Jacob, the very House over which the Angel informed Mary that Jesus Christ would reign over forever. "And he (Jesus) shall reign over the House of Jacob, for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end." (Luke 1:33) The Children of Israel were reminded of their deliverance from Egyptian bondage and their safe journey through the wilderness. The Lord continued on, saying, that if the Children of Israel would obey His voice and keep His covenant, they would be rewarded: "...then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for the earth is mine." (Exodus 19:5)

 Having reminded Israel of their deliverance from Egypt and His willingness to constitute them a special treasure unto Him above all the other people of the earth if they would obey His voice and keep His covenant, the Lord proposed to make them His Kingdom. If they would do all He commanded, God declared: "And ye shall be unto Me A Kingdom of priests, and an holy nation..." (Exodus 19:6) Thus the Lord informed Israel they were to be above all nations and become a kingdom of administrators. But in order to function as His administrators, they were to be unto Him a Kingdom; that is His Kingdom.

 Therefore it can be clearly seen that: The birth of the Kingdom of God is clearly set forth in the nineteenth and twentieth chapters of Exodus. So the answer to the question: What is the Kingdom of God, it was/is The House of Jacob, when was it organized: At Mt. Sinai.
