Kingdom existed in promise. Throughout the Old Testament, the kingdom/church

existed in prophecy and promise. Isaiah said that in the last days the Lord’s

house would be established and the Word of the Lord would go forth from

Jerusalem. Paul identifies the Lord’s house as the Church. Daniel prophesied

that God’s kingdom would be established “During the time of the kings of the

fourth kingdom.” History tells us that this fourth kingdom referred to was the

Roman Empire that ruled the known world until 476 AD. He went on to write “the

God of heaven will set up another kingdom that will continue forever. It will

never be destroyed. And it will be the kind of kingdom that cannot be passed on

to another group of people. This kingdom will crush all the other kingdoms. It

will bring them to an end, but that kingdom itself will continue forever.” This

eternal kingdom is the one that was established on the day of Pentecost in Acts

2. The promise of its coming was fulfilled on that day and that same promise

tells us it will “continue throughout eternity.”
