Psalm 48:1 ∂ A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8 ∂ As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.


Isaiah 2: 1 ∂ The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 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.
3 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 of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 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.
5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.


These are only some out of many prophecies relating to the spiritual kingdom of God, which we as believers are a part of now. The visible church is the physical manifestation of the spiritual kingdom.

Hi cg81,

Cool. Anything about the advent of Jesus? For example I believe Zechariah 8 was when Jesus was present.

I think these are especially interesting


Zech 8
13'It will come about that just as you were a (U)curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you that you may become a (V)blessing Do not fear; let your (W)hands be strong.'

3"Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'In those days ten men from all the nations will (AQ)grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."'"
This is what Paul quotes.
Genesis 18
since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him (P)all the nations of the earth will be blessed?


Also this sealed it for me.

Mark 6
56Wherever He entered villages, or cities, or countryside, they were laying the sick in the market places, and imploring Him that they might just (BD)touch (BE)the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were being cured.
