Kingdom Law refers to the commandments, judgments, and statutes that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. Kingdom Law is usually referred to as the Pentateuch (from the Greek) or by the Hebrew term Torah. It is our belief that these Laws were given to Israel because they were the first people or nation to be invited into God’s Kingdom. We do not believe that God intended His Kingdom Law to be only for the people and nation of Israel, but for all people and nations who would become a part of His Kingdom, as we see indicated in the Scriptures (Daniel 7:13-14), as well as in the following Midrash.
If Torah had been given in the land of Israel, Israel might have said to the nations of the world, “you have no share in it.” Therefore the Torah was given in the wilderness, i.e., in public for all to see; and everyone who wishes to receive it, let him come and receive it. [qtd. in Bible-History.com]
In addition, according to the Hebrew prophets, all nations will be following Kingdom Law (i.e., the Torah) during the time period of the coming Messianic Kingdom, such as Isaiah 2:2-4.
And it shall come to pass IN THE LAST DAYS, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us HIS WAYS, and we will walk in HIS PATHS: for out of Zion shall go forth THE LAW [Heb. TORAH], and the WORD OF THE LORD from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. [Emphasis Mine]
This is a passage that prophecies about the future Messianic kingdom. During Jesus’ coming 1,000 year reign, there will be universal peace, no more battles or war. And also during this time, THE TORAH [GOD’S LAWS] will be taught. In this passage, THE TORAH is also called “HIS WAYS,” “HIS PATHS,” and “THE WORD OF THE LORD” is used as synonyms for THE TORAH. And where will they be taught? In THE LORD’S HOUSE, another phrase for THE HOLY TEMPLE in Jerusalem.
So how could GOD’S LAWS – HIS TORAH – or THE TEMPLE SYSTEM have ended at the cross when we see it in full operation here during the Millennial reign? To have it end at the cross is in complete opposition to what we find taught here and other portions of Scripture regarding the coming Millennial reign.
Therefore, in this section, I have included articles that discuss what the Bible teaches about Kingdom Law, as well as common questions that people ask about it. If readers have a question regarding God’s Kingdom Law, please feel free to ask. I will try to answer it here in this section if I can.
