The establishment of God’s government was predicted through the prophet Isaiah.
For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7
What did Jesus preach? He preached the Gospel of the Government – the Kingdom of God. He preached about HIS government which will rule and last forever.
Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God, And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel). Mark 1: 14-15
How do you become a citizen of the Kingdom of God?
Citizenship is available to all by grace through faith in receiving God’s love. When you confess “Jesus is Lord” with your mouth and believe in your heart that Christ Jesus was raised from the dead, you will be saved. The blood of Jesus Christ has washed away all your sins. You now enter into the citizenship of the government of the Kingdom of God ruled by King Jesus. You come under the authority and rule of King Jesus who pardoned all your transgressions and set you free from the bondage of sin.
You are a citizen of the Kingdom of God conferred on you by the mighty hand of Christ Jesus HIMSELF. Your citizenship is sealed with the blood of the lamb and cannot be taken away. You are a redeemed, transformed, restored and justified as a child of God HOLY and RIGHTEOUS with your citizenship in the Kingdom of God stamped in your heart and sealed for eternity. You are made Righteous and Holy in God’s image because of Christ Jesus death and resurrection.
