God’s Kingdom—What Will It Mean for You?

You likely gathered from the preceding articles that God’s Kingdom means a lot to Jehovah’s Witnesses. And perhaps you were intrigued by some of the future blessings of God’s Kingdom that were discussed. At the same time, you may wonder if such promises are too good to be true.

You are wise to be cautious instead of believing everything you hear. (Proverbs 14:15) In some ways, your caution could be compared to that of the ancient Beroeans. * When they were first told about the good news of the Kingdom, the Beroeans accepted what they heard, but not simply because they wanted it to be true. Rather, they carefully examined the Scriptures “to see whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:11) In other words, the Beroeans compared the good news that they heard with what the Scriptures say. In time, they became convinced that the good news was in fact solidly based on God’s Word.

Jehovah’s Witnesses warmly invite you to do the same. By means of our free Bible study program, we offer you the opportunity to compare what Jehovah’s Witnesses believe about God’s Kingdom with what the Bible teaches.

In addition to your learning about God’s Kingdom, your study of the Bible can help you to find answers to some of life’s biggest questions.

Above all, studying the Bible will help you to “draw close to God.” (James 4:8) In turn, the closer you draw to God, the more you will see how God’s Kingdom can mean good things for you—not just now but forever. Jesus himself said in prayer to his Father: “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.”John 17:3.
