God upholds all things by His word, which is powerful beyond measure (Hebrews 1:3).
By His word, the heavens and earth were formed and by His word they have been sustained ever since.
Since all things are governed by His word, and since the earth was to be governed by humanity, can you not see how devastating it is that we human beings have not submitted to His word? Because of us, creation is out of order. Because of our rebellion, there is chaos.
The good news is that He forgives us in Jesus Christ and longs for us to return to Him. To the degree that we submit to His word, the restoration of creation proceeds.
Listen to the word of God and obey it. In this way we extend His kingdom until all things have come into full subjection to Him.
The kingdom of God is not advanced by building, societies, organizations, or pledges. It is advanced as we human beings hear His word and do it.
The word of God is the word of the kingdom (Matthew 13:19). If you would regard the kingdom, regard His word (Isaiah 66:2).
