What is biblical meaning of the phrase thy kingdom come?
It means His power, authority, will. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 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. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:9-15 (KJV) FURTHER The word kingdom means king's domain and it is a type of government with a king as it's head. Jesus was teaching us to pray for God's Kingdom to "come," that is, excercise authority over the earth, as it is in heaven, so that God's will, or purpose, will be accomplished here on the earth, as it is in heaven. In Daniel chapter 2, the Bible prophesied about that kingdom. Daniel had a dream about an immense image that pictured world rulers and governments. Then in verse 44 it says, "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite." So God's Kingdom, a real government, will "crush and put an end" to all other kingdoms that stand in opposition to his kingdom. Isaiah 9:6,7 tells us that Jesus Christ is appointed to rule that kingdom. He is the now-reigning king over God's Kingdom, and soon that kingdom will "come" and bring about God's will for the earth, as Jesus has taught us to pray for. When will that be? Jesus gave us a composite sign in Matthew 24, beginning with the 3rd verse, that includes warfare, famine, sickness, crime, a general lack of love in the world, and other things. In 2 Timothy 3: starting with the 1st verse, Paul wrote that the last days before God's Kingdom will "come" will be marked by critical times and people would have no natural affection, would be dissobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, lovers of themselves, haughty, puffed up with pride, and many other things. These indicators and more from the Bible tells us that we are now living in the time period when soon God's Kingdom will "come" as Jesus taught us to pray for. Nobody on earth knows exactly the day nor hour, but we can discern that it is close from fullfilled Bible prophecy. The gospels refer to two kingdoms (1) the kingdom of God the Son, Jesus Christ which we enter through baptism and where we remain until the Last Day when "He will deliver the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule, every authority and power" (2) The kingdom of God the Father "Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father" As it appears that the Kingdom of God the Father will not be open to us until the Last Day I presume that this is the reason for saying "Thy kingdom come"

The Lord's Prayer You're probably thinking of the King James Version of what is commonly called "the Lord's Prayer," also known in some circles as the "model pray…er." The Gospels give two slightly different versions of the phrasing. Matthew 6:9-13 renders it like this: Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Luke 11:2-4, on the other hand, uses a slightly different phrasing: And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3Give us day by day our daily bread. 4And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Why are they different? One commentary posits that these two different phrasings were actually offered on two separate occasions. Matthew places it during Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount," where He taught a large group of people on a hillside or mountainside. Luke, on the other hand, has one of His disciples asking about prayer. Another common thought is that Jesus is not mandating a rote incantation, but offers instead a "how-to" manual for prayer, using the order of the subject matter rather than the specific words. This line of thought dismisses the differences as unimportant in light of the intent. Footnotes included in several translations, including the NIV, speculate that the closing doxology of the Matthew version is included only in later transcriptions of the text, the source for which may be part of a standard Jewish prayer. How would a Christian reconcile the differences? Some would say that the differences indicate fallibility of the Bible. While that would be true if the Bible should be held to modern-day standards of literary criticism, another train of thought takes a different approach. This approach, in short, assumes that the Bible is adequately accurate for communicating those thoughts that are important, relegating certain details as unimportant. The idea here is that God makes the standard, not us. Those who choose not to believe this, though, are left with a conundrum.
To "honor your word" means that you mean what you say, you "Walk the walk and talk the talk;" it means your word is your "bond," it has value and worth in equal measure …to any tangible, material item and can be used to secure your interest in a transaction or property, i.e., "I give you my word that I will pay you for the pig by Wednesday." It is then up to you to "honor your word" by showing up on or before Wednesday and paying for the pig.
These are what is is called the hortatory subjunctive , also known as the third person imperative.
This phrase is recorded by Ezekiel, a Jewish priest and prophet recently exiled to Babylon. God's throne is shown to have wheels etc. the point seems to be that God is not bac…k in Palestine, his throne is mobile, he is God of everywhere and he is with his people even in their exile. The wheel was a perfect wheel of vapor born from a vortex [whirlwind like] riding from within a nimbus cloud. The Cherubin ride inside of this wheel and move downwards within their light. The Glory of the Lord came from within the wheel and this caused a Rainbow like aura as describerd by Ezekiel to spin on the outside of the wheel producing a wheel spinning around a wheel,spinning not in the direction it went over the heads of those who were there.These are Gods Chariots and have been described in ancient text as Ophanin.This is the wheel within a wheel, it is NOT symbolic.
A "wolf" (bad person or influence) can be let in to one's life byan unsuspecting hen; eventually the wolf will consume the hen.
I think it means that God's kingdom (Heaven) will come (To earth). Thy will be done as it is in Heaven means that the will of God will be done on earth just like Heaven. M…eaning when Heaven comes all of earth will obey God and it will be as good as Heaven, it will be perfect. Jesus prayed this to God when he was teaching the disciples how to pray, 9 "This, then, is how you should pray: "'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
When God created mankind, he made them from earth, and placed them on earth to 'cultivate and take care of it'. (Genesis 2:7)(Genesis 2:15) They had the hope of living forev…er in a paradise earth, unless they disobeyed God.(Genesis 2:16) They had everything they could ever need (Genesis 2:16-25), but chose to turn against God.(Genesis 3:1-13) Because of this, all Adam's descendants were subject to sin and death (Romans 5:12), but God's purpose for the earth and humankind had never changed.(Proverbs 2:20-22)(Psalms 115:16) He sent Jesus to buy us back from sin and death (1 John 2:1&2)(1 John 4:9&10), and open the way for faithful mankind to once again, live forever on a peaceful paradise earth, as God had originally intended.(Isaiah 55:10&11) (John 3:16)In the 'model prayer' that Jesus demonstrated above, he reminded his followers to continue praying for 'God's Kingdom to come, and for his will, once again, to be done on earth, as it is in the peaceful heavens, (Matthew 6:9&10), when he brings about those paradise conditions promised so many years ago, (Psalms 37:10,11,29)(Matthew 5:5)(Revelation 21:3&4) under God's Kingdom government. (Daniel 2:44)
It means "You want to realise your dream by hardworking" or "you want to donate your possession"

"Kingdom Come" is a phrase from the bible, specifically: "...Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done, On Earth as it is in Heaven...." The literal meaning being "I will knock you to …heaven" but the social meaning of "I will hurt you greatly"
The Lord's Prayer is open to interpretation by the individual reading it. Rather than copy a large tract of text from Wikipedia, see the related link to the article. It breaks… down each part of the prayer, and gives various interpretations of the meaning of each phrase.
