6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel ?" 7 And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
Notice that Jesus agreed with His disciples that He will one day restore the Kingdom of Israel. However, Jesus said that the time for the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel lay in the future at an appointed time only known to the Father. It will be the time when Jesus Christ returns to this earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom of God.
The main focus of the Bible and most of the references about the Kingdom of God relate to the coming Millennial Kingdom lasting for a thousand years. There are only a few references about the Eternal Kingdom of the New Heaven and the New Earth, which is everlasting. These two phases of the Kingdom of God are distinct and separate and should not be confused with each other.
Jesus Christ makes it very clear that only a few people, during this Age, will be saved to enter the Millennial Kingdom of God as the Bride of Christ in their resurrected bodies.
