"Christ’s Rule on Earth Look back in your Bibles at Matthew 26:29. Matthew 26:29 (NKJV) But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” Jesus promised His disciples, that they were going to join Him in a special celebration in His Father’s Kingdom. It is a promise that Jesus is Himself waiting to partake of the cup until He has safely brought each one He has invited, to the Table. Jesus was saying: “No matter what happens, no matter how bad it gets, I am coming”. Jesus will win and His disciples will join Him safely in His future celebration of His Father’s Kingdom. My Father’s Kingdom Speaks of Victory & Security One of the big promises Jesus made was that He was going to come back and rule over the Messianic Kingdom promised to Israel all the way through the Old Testament. Listen to exactly what He said as we turn back to Matthew 19:28. Matthew 19:28 (NKJV) So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. So in Matthew 26:29, Jesus ends communion with those words about “My Father’s Kingdom”; and in Mat. 19:28 Jesus had told the disciples they were going to sit on thrones in a kingdom that was coming in the future. What exactly would Christ's disciples have understood that kingdom of His Father to be? The answer is that: Jesus Had Already Explained the Coming Kingdom We have written down for us what would have been on the minds of Christ's disciples as Jesus said those closing words of Matthew 26:29. The context of the Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is fascinating. A quick way to understand the coming Kingdom is by using the exact record of what Christ said and taught; and tracing the words that tie to this closing statement in v. 29. In other words, what is Christ's Father’s Kingdom, and what had Jesus clearly taught His disciples about that Kingdom? Just before the Lord’s Supper in Matthew 26, what did Jesus teach about in the two previous chapters? Of course, we all have seen over the past few weeks that Matthew 24 & 25 are all about Christ's Coming, the Tribulation, and giving an account for how we lived our lives. So the direct context of the Father’s Kingdom is all that teaching that Jesus had done. Jesus Preceded the Lord’s Supper with a Summary of the Future." from video introduction.
