In Genesis 12 God told Abram (later called Abraham) to leave the land of Ur and travel to the promised land. After Abram arrived in what we now call Israel, God made a binding covenant promising Abram and his heirs they would inherit all of the land he had just traveled through.
But Abraham died before he possessed any of the land (Acts 7:5)! He had lived as an alien in the promised land. (Hebrews 11:9).
If God is true to his promises to Abraham, then Abraham must come back to life! He must be resurrected!
Galatians 3:7 says that those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. That means if you are a believer, you will inherit the promised land and partake in all of the blessings God promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
In Exodus 19:6 the Lord tells the nation of Israel “You shall be to Me a Kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”
A Kingdom requires a King. The word “Christ” literally means “Anointed King”. Jesus will return as the King and set up His Kingdom in the promised land.
This is our Hope!

While the Kingdom of God is a mainstream Christian doctrine, very few lay people understand it. To the majority of people, the afterlife is a great mystery, but the Bible clearly lays out what the hope is of those that enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ. He is the Messiah, and will return as King to set up His Kingdom. He is also our Savior and 2000 years ago He died to cleanse us all from all sins. Our Hope will explain how the Kingdom is the thread that ties all of the books of the Bible together.
This book covers:
· The importance of the covenants,
· How the conscience can interfere with your daily walk,
· How communion is to remind us of the Kingdom,
· When and how we will be judged,
· Outer Darkness
· And much more.
So many various doctrines revolve around salvation, and much of it is because the hope of the Kingdom is not understood. No matter where you stand doctrinally, this information may help you understand the Gospel more clearly.
