“Thy Kingdom Come”


“… For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people…”* (ISA 60:2a)

With all the many problems in this world, there are too, too many needs, too many things for which we could intercede. There’s the usual tumultous Middle East. A war between Ukraine and Russia. A possible invasion of Taiwan by China. Saints being martyred in India, Nigeria, and in many, many countries. And the children being educated in perversion. So I asked the LORD what to pray to cover the whole world, and He, in His still, “small voice”, told me, “Thy Kingdom come”.


“… one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John [the Baptist] also taught his disciples.’” (Luke 11:1b)

So Yeshua the Messiah taught them to pray an abridged version of a Jewish prayer:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

(MATT 6:9b-13)

After Christ taught this succinct prayer, the Twelve** Apostles would go out and teach the world the “Our Father”. This prayer could also be a model, a guideline for lengthier prayers, but the important thing is to remember that we are speaking to our Heavenly Dad, our Abba, so that we will not say this as a meaningless chant!

MATT 6:7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.


This is an abridged form of The Amidah, a prayer composed in the 5th century BC as 120** men of the Great Assembly sat down to arrange this composition. (Actually, when the prayer is recited, Jews stand up!) Now it is a standard form of praise with prayer and even termed “HaTefillah” or in English, “the prayer”!

This ancient prayer has the concept of “Our Father, Our King” (Avinu Malkenu) reigning over an eternal kingdom as does the LORD’s Prayer, also called “Our Father”.

Matt 6:13 …For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.


MATT 1:14 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

The Kingdom of God lives in every born-again believer in Yeshua. We are praying for more of that! That the Kingdom of God would be manifest in many hearts “for God so loved the world”! This is a story of two Kingdoms: the evil and the good.

COL 1:13 He [the LORD] has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

But the Kingdom has not come to everyone yet and so we pray:

“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

The High KING of Heaven will return and in that day, those who have not yet submitted to “the NAME-that-is-above-ever-other-name”, will now bow their knees before Him. (Isaiah 45:23; Romans 14:11) He will reign on earth with His faithful saints.

1 COR 6:2 “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?”

A 1000 years. The Prince of Peace will be ruling with His saints for the last millennia of the 7000 years.

REV 20:6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

“Thy Kingdom come” will mean no more Middle East crisis for the LORD will reign from Jerusalem.

“Thy Kingdom come” will mean no more wars, period! ***

“Thy Kingdom come” will mean no more terrorists, kidnappings, and random gun-shootings!

“Thy Kingdom come” will mean no more starvation for God provides for His people.

“Thy Kingdom come” will mean no more children being taught in wicked ways in schools.

ROM 14:17 for the kingdom of God is … righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

HalleluYAH! Can you imagine what the people of that time will enjoy? Can you also imagine what the resurrected saints will enjoy?

1COR 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

The words of Christ:
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.“ (LUKE 12:32)


אבינו מלכנו
“Our Father, Our King”

*This is the rest of this verse, so the LORD’s glory will be seen on His faithful saints!
ISA 60:1 Arise, shine; For your light has come!And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,And deep darkness the people;But the Lord will arise over you,And His glory will be seen upon you.3 The Gentiles shall come to your light,And kings to the brightness of your rising.

*** There will be this confrontation at the very, very, end of this 1000 years but the devil doesn’t have any chance of winning!
REV 20:7 When the thousand years are complete, Satan will be released from his prison, 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to assemble them for battle. Their number is like the sand of the seashore. 9 And they marched across the broad expanse of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. But fire came down from heaven and consumed them.
