Yours Is the Kingdom
Yours Is the Kingdom is a compilation of stories taken exclusively from the Scriptures of the Holy Bible. It is a story of a king, His Kingdom, and an invitation to become a member of His royal family. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He intended for Earth to become a territory and a replica of Heaven. Jesus refers to this when He taught us to pray “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
God created man in His image to have dominion over the earth. Adam and Eve enjoyed a very special fellowship with God and His Presence was with them in the garden. Everything they needed was provided. Satan’s deception caused mankind to lose dominion. Consequently, Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden and Satan’s evil influence began to rule on earth. Yet the Lord God had a plan of redemption and restoration. His plans of triumph were ordained before the foundations of the world and prophesied throughout the Bible.
God chose the family line of Abraham to bring a Savior, Jesus, into this world. The stories of Abraham’s family recount a series of lessons in triumph and defeat, obedience and rebellion, and of promise and restoration. Jesus came to restore the dominion of the Kingdom of God to Earth. Through the pages of this book, the love of God for His creation and His desire to live among us unfolds. Jesus redeems mankind to their original relationship with the Almighty God and restores man’s place in the Garden of Eden—a place of rest, provision, and complete reliance on the Creator.
