I realized I missed a month a while back for quotes/excerpts from some of my favorite books. I've included fiction, stuff on clothes, politics, health, and now I'm gonna do my favorite religious book, The Bible. In particular, I've narrowed the focus on quotes about the Kingdom of God:
Luke 4: 43
But he [Jesus] said to them: " I must also declare the good news of the Kingdom of God to other cities, because for this I was sent."
"In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever."
"And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come."
Matthew 6: 9, 10
"You must pray, then, this way: 'Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come.' "
Revelation 11: 15
The seventh angel blew his trumpet. And there were loud voices in heaven, saying: "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever."
Luke 4: 5 -8
So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time. Then the Devil said to him: "I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. If you, therefore, do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours." In reply Jesus said to him: "It is written, 'It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is him alone you must render sacred service.' "
Luke 1: 31 - 33
"And look! you will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus. This one will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and Jehovah God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule as King over the house of Jacob forever, and there will be no end to his Kingdom."
Isaiah 11: 1-5
A twig will grow out of the stump of Jesse, and a sprout from his roots will bear fruit. And the spirit of Jehovah will settle upon him, the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the spirit of counsel and of mightiness, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. And he will find delight in the fear of Jehovah. He will not judge by what appears to his eyes, nor reprove simply according to what his ears hear. He will judge the lowly with fairness, and with uprightness he will give reproof in behalf of the meek ones of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth and put the wicked to death with the breath of his lips. Righteousness will be the belt around his waist, and faithfulness the belt of his hips.
Daniel 7: 27
" 'And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships will serve and obey them.' "
Revelation 20: 6
Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and they will rule as kings with him for the 1,000 years.
Revelation 14: 1-5
Then I saw, and look! the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; and the sound that I heard was like singers who accompany themselves by playing on their harps. And they are singing what seems to be a new song before the four living creatures and the elders, and no one was able to master that song except the 144,000, who have been bought from the earth. These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb, and no deceit was found in their mouths; they are without blemish.
Hebrews 12: 22
But you have approached a Mount Zion and a city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, and myriads of angels...
1 Peter 2: 5, 6
you yourselves as living stones are being built up into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, in order to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it says in Scripture: "Look! I am laying in Zion a chosen stone, a precious foundation cornerstone, and no one exercising faith in it will ever be disappointed."
Luke 22: 28, 29
"However, you are the ones who have stuck with me in my trials; and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom"
Revelation 5: 9, 10
And they sing a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, for you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought people for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth."
"For the lips of a priest should safeguard knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth, because he is the messenger of Jehovah of armies."
Hebrews 5: 1; 9: 24
For every high priest taken from among men is appointed in their behalf over things relating to God, so that he may offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with hands, which is a copy of the reality, but into heaven itself, so that he now appears before God on our behalf.
1 Timothy 2: 5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus,...
Psalm 37: 9-11, 29
For the evil will be done away with, but those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth. Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, and they will not be there. But the meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.
Proverbs 2: 21, 22
For only the upright will reside in the earth, and the blameless will remain in it. As for the wicked, they will be cut off from the earth, and the treacherous will be torn away from it.
"Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth."
Luke 23: 39-43
Then one of the criminals hanging there began to speak abusively to him, saying: "You are the Christ, are you not? Save yourself and us too!" In response the other rebuked him, saying: "Do you not fear God at all, now that you have received the same judgement? And we rightly so, for we are getting back what we deserve for the things we did; but this man did nothing wrong." Then he said: "Jesus, remember me when you get into your kingdom." And he said to him: "Truly I tell you today, you will be with me in Paradise."
Isaiah 45: 18
For this is what Jehovah says, the Creator of the heavens, the true God, the One who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, who did not create it simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited: "I am Jehovah, and there is no one else."
1 Corinthians 15: 24-28
Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. For God "subjected all things under his feet." But when he says that 'all things have been subjected,' it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.
