If you are referring to the prayer called the" Our Father" Jesus is saying that Gods kingdom will come when His will is done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Remember, No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born from above. No one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and spirit. Flesh makes flesh spirit makes spirit. Don ot be amazed you must all be born from above.
How about the kingdom referred to in Daniel 2:44?
Could that be the same?
Might be, or it might not. Nobody knows the exact meaning of "kingdom" anyway; for example some christians think it's going to be established here on this material earth after judgment day, and others (including me) think it exists in some other non-material plane of existence like Jesus hinted at-
"I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going" (John 8:14)
. . . PS- and as a matter of interest why is it so important for you to know precisely what "kingdom" means?
Surely it could simply mean "the place where God and Jesus are", aren't you happy with that definition?
"Those from earth who happen to be raised to heavenly life will serve as kings and priests over the earth. (See Revelation 5:10) Who do you believe will be the earthly subjects if not millions, perhaps billions, of perfect humans?"
So, what you're saying is the creator of the universe the one whose purpose cannot be denied, is incapable of maintaining Eden like conditions on earth. And, even if he could, you would not be willing to accept life in paradise as a a gift? You certainly have high standards. Is there anything else you care to teach God?
....Think of the Earth as just a "throwaway testing ground" which, after having served it's purpose is disposed of after judgement day.
You're flogging a dead horse mate.
Jesus was quite specific- "In my Father's House are many mansions... and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" (John 14:2/3)
See, that's plain enough, he's coming back to this material earth to collect his mates and whisk them off to mansions in God's kingdom ("house")..
you have said nothing so far to inspire my confidence.
Firstly if we'll all be in material bodies, what will those bodies be like, young, middleaged or old? For example if i meet my granma there, will she be in her old 80-year-old body or in her teenage body? If the latter, how will i recognise her?
I believe in a 'non-material paradise', and Matthew ch 22 about a widow who'd had seven husbands backs me up to the hilt-
Jesus was asked-"at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”
Jesus replied- "At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven" (Matt 22:23-30)
That's clear enough, we become non-material life-forms ("angels") in a non-material paradise..
You suggested earlier I might be an atheist, and that I might be either mistaken or a liar. Allegations to which I responded. "This could be fun."
Are you having fun yet?
.. . Also in the pattern is the fact that you shy away from giving direct answers to my questions, for example when I asked if you think my granma will be resurrected in a teenage body, ....
... . and when I asked if you're an atheist.
Or are you a satanist or crackpot cultist or fairy queen worshipper or what? We'd love to know.... .
You didn't understand the reference to Isaiah 35:5-7?
You say Jesus "trumps them all". I say Jesus is in agreement with them all
