Bible Q

Will the kingdom of God be boring?

No. Life can be so fascinating and the present world can be so exciting that it is inconceivable that it will be less interesting in the kingdom.

David once wrote the following about God:

… in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Ps. 16:11)

In the kingdom, where the immortal saints will be with God’s perfect representative, Jesus, for ever (1 Thess. 4:17), there won’t be any boredom because there will ‘fullness of joy’ and ‘pleasures forevermore’. We may not understand exactly how this will develop, but we can trust God that it will be the case.

2 Replies to “Will the kingdom of God be boring?”

  1. Is God’s Kingdom a real government?

    Or is it, instead, a condition in the hearts of men?

    Luke 17:21, KJ: “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you [also TEV, Dy; but “among you,” KJ margin, NE, JB; “in the midst of you,” RS; “in your midst,” NW].” (Notice that, as shown by verse 20, Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees, whom he also denounced as hypocrites, so he could not have meant that the Kingdom was in their hearts. But the Kingdom as represented by Christ was in their midst. Thus The Emphatic Diaglott reads: “God’s royal majesty is among you.”)

    Does the Bible actually speak of God’s Kingdom as being a government?

    Isa. 9:6, 7, RS: “To us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government [also KJ, AT, Dy; “dominion,” JB, NE; “princely rule,” NW] will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’ Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end.”

  2. Those who will rule in the heavens with Jesus Christ
    according to rev. 7:6 144,00 these ones will rule as kings and priests over a great crowd of mankind on earth as you look in
    (Revelation 7:9) . . .After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which
    no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and
    tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white
    robes; and there were palm branches in their hands. Then (Revelation 7:13-17) . . . 13 And in
    response one of the elders said to me: “These who are dressed in the white
    robes, who are they and where did they come from?” 14 So right away I said to
    him: “My lord, you are the one that knows.” And he said to me: “These are the
    ones that come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes
    and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 That is why they are before
    the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in
    his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them.
    16 They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down
    upon them nor any scorching heat, 17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of
    the throne, will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of
    life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.”

    So boring? SHOULD
    THAT NEVER BE! By means of that Heavenly
    government mankind on earth will benefit.
    That’s why ones pray for it according to (Matthew 6:9-10) . . . 9 “YOU
    must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be
    sanctified. 10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven,
    also upon earth.
