What Is The Kingdom Of God?

  1. The pity of Jesus Christ always results in a New Creation. Christ is not scandalized by human need and want. Rather, the Lord regards every experience of human lack as a prime opportunity to manifest God’s lavishness. From the earliest days, God has beckoned us, promising, “Come, all who are thirsty! Come, you who have no money!” The Lord delights in the dependence that our destitution evokes, and He answers it -in today’s “deserted place” with bread and fish, and in the upper room with His very Self. Trial, distress, hunger, and danger do not separate us from the love of Christ. Rather, they draw Him close to us with a love that conquers all. Blessings…

  2. the kingdom of God is when a person becomes born agian by repenting of one’s sin and changing one’s mind about sin and turning to the Lord and confessing with one’s mouth that he is your Lord and master of your life and that you believe that God the father raised him from the dead and the promise of God is that you will be saved, but the kingdom of Heaven is when the Lord will come back to take over the earth and rule it from the city of Jerusalem in the land of Israel, God bless you all

  3. The belief that the Church is a makeshift measure for the benefit of the Gentiles is unbiblical. So is the notion that the “kingdom” Jesus preached is a future restored Israel. In Matt. 4:17 Jesus said, “the kingdom of heaven is AT HAND.” In Matt. 16:13-20, when Jesus taught that He will establish His Church on the “rock” (St. Peter, Peter means rock), He told Peter, “I will give YOU (not someone in the distant future) the “keys of the kingdom of Heaven. Sacred Scripture calls the Church the “Body of Christ” (Ep 5:23, Col. 1:24), the “New Jerusalem” (Rev. 21:2), the “kingdom of Heaven” (Matt 13), the “Bride of Christ” that Jesus marries at the end of time (Rev.21:9) Jesus said “He would be with His Church ALL DAYS, until the end of time.” (Matt. 28:20) THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS THE CHURCH. The idea that the Church is merely a passing phase until the restored kingdom of Israel arrives is found nowhere in Sacred Scripture. Worse, this view contradicts clear Biblical evidence that the Kingdom of God is the Church. The OT is fulfilled in the NT. The OT priesthood is fulfilled in the priesthood of Christ. The OT sacrifices were fulfilled in the sacrifice of Calvary. Likewise, the OT Israel is fulfilled in the NT Church – the NEW Israel of God (Gal. 6:16) OT prophecies regarding Israel find their ultimate fulfillment in the CHURCH. There will be NO return to the OT Israel as God’s covenant people, since the NT Church, is the “new and eternal covenant people of God.” To equate the current nation of Israel – created in 1948 by the United Nations, a SECULAR, anti-Christian institution – with the OT “covenant” nation of Israel shows a faulty understanding of both history and Scripture. The OT Israel was established by God on Mount Sinai as part of the OT “covenant” given to Moses. That is why Israel was a “covenant” nation. The current nation of Israel has no religious significance to us as Christians. However, we DO believe the Jews are still in God’s plan, as St. Paul teaches in Rom. 11, one day they will enter “the Church” and become part of the NT chosen people. Peace.

    • To Greg M. – Irvin is likely smiling because he has brought many people to Christ and directed them to the Gospel spoken of in the Book of Acts, and has done so as Minister for over 50 years. His organization has spent over 5 million dollars creating an education and refuge center in Jerusalem for Jews, his organization is currently marketing the highest quality and scripturely correct CDs, DVDs, books and pamphlets on the market today. His organization is experiencing the highest growth rate (65%) of any currently televised Christian program. All the above is just to name a few.
      Does that make sense ?

  4. Make believe that you’re the last person on this planet. No body is here to teach, to share their thought or your comments to help some body to understand what the rules are to get to Heaven, God’s Kingdom. Let’s keep it simple, based on what Jesus said when asked ” How do I get to heaven? ” and Jesus said, “Repent and believe”
    Repent – to be sincerely sorry for all your sins. ( for example; make an examination of conscience using the Ten Commandments.) Believe in every word that Jesus made in the readings of the Gosples. YOU do the searching! Don’t play with His words. He himself said don’t add, remove or change what I have said. That’s not verbatim, but it’s really close like two coats of paint. Suggest you first stop throwing stones and polish up your own soul.

  5. Please read Luke 17:20-21.The Kingdom of God is within us. It is the transformation of the mind & heart to be in God Likeness.Yes,to be righteous, holy truth & with Love.please read-Ephesians 4:23-24.When we are transform we are transits to his Kingdom in this earth. Ready to be transfer to the New Jerusalem & New Heaven with God and his Son The King of Kings.(Revelation:21-1-26.).Amen”. These only can be possible through prayers in humble heart to God.(James 4:10).Blessed reading.

  6. BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT PREACHERS YOU WATCH ON TV TODAY THERE ARE MANY ANTICHRISTS ON THERE NOT PREACHING BIBLE TRUTH, THERE ARE NOT MANY ROADS TO HEAVEN THAT IS A LIE FROM HELL, THE BIBLE SAYS WIDE IS THE GATE AND NARROW IS THE WAY AND FEW FIND IT.

  7. My question is…what will we be doing for eternity…? It doesn’t matter where I am either on earth or in heaven…but eternity is a LONG time…so I like to find out what we will be doing. If Earth and Heaven is a perfect place, then how do we spend eternity? What are peoples idea of that? It’s obvious that Jesus will come and rule…and God rules Heaven, so, I like to wonder what wonderful things do they have for us to do?

    • We will do what our Father and Christ do; we will create and beautify. We will most definitely work, but we will love our work.
      U/s something: we will be god beings ourselves, and each of us will be infinitely more powerful than Satan ever was/is. We will be sons of the most high, and we are promised to inherit all He possesses. We will judge angels and be higher in power and might than them.
      Love and a strong and stable character are absolutely necessary or God will not give us eternal life.

      • Thank you for your comments…I guess I ask this, because in my mind I have a love for horses, and ranching, and art and living eternally in a paradise, with Christ as the ruler will be fabulous, and I can’t wait…I know that He will make our eternal life wonderful, but it’s nice to think of things that make our life bearable without Christ’s LIVE presence now…and something to look forward to. I love to dream of peace peace peace and beauty…

  8. Christ is the only way to the kingdom of God.Jn 14:6. But some christians still think that by the service they render to God,they can qualify for the kingdom of God.

  9. I believe that the the Kingdom of God is here within us, and we Christians are the ones that have ability to reveal God’s will on this Earth. We dont have to wait for God to come back to establish this Kingdom, but it is already in existence right now. The mystery of the kingdom hve been revealed to those that have been born again of the Spirit.

    • we have the spiritual kingdom within us but one day that kingdom will be physically brought to earth and we will rule and reign with him amen

  10. I get sick to my stomach with nervousness about not having been filled with the Holy Spirit yet. I had backslide for quite a while and had never spoken in tounges then either. I’ve repented and have been baptized in Jesus’ name but I have never spoken in tounges which is the evidence of being infilled with the Holy Ghost so that means I have not been born again. I feel like I’ve sincerely repented and the Holy Ghost is a gift from God, meaning no one has to work for it; it is given freely. I know that I have to work on strengthening my faith and praise God more instead up being reserved and clamming up at church when I am normally a very outgoing, outspoken person. And I know that I need to strengthen my faith and get rid of any doubts that I admittedly experience from time to time. I’m just gonna continue to seek and live for God and pray about it.

    • It’s really sad that some believe they’re not saved because they lack certain spiritual gifts. If you believe Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose the third day, you are saved. Paul said not all speak in tongues. Do you not believe him?

      Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? 1 Corinthians 12:29-30

      … Not everyone speaks in tongues.

      • want it more than you want anything in this world fasting is good to and most important telling the lord you want and except his wonderful gift, i received it back in the 80′s. i find a lot of people that want it are afraid to get it, because they dont know what is happening, i can tell you its nothing to be afraid of, all you feel mostly is a slight tightening of the tongue and or jaw, and when the holy ghost comes in the most peace,love,joy, pure happiness you have ever known in your entire life,

      • The bridge to what you are seeking is praise! Allow yourself to forget yourself and become absorbed in His presence–He will draw close to you as you praise and inhabit your praise. Don’t seek for the gift of tongues. Relax into His loving arms–a comforting, safe place to be! He is a gentleman. King David was an example of praise that God loved. Read praise Scripture. Observe saints worshiping, sit or stand where you can hear them and you will soon feel His presence inhabit their praise! Hope this helps! <3

    • It is my hope to comfort you, Tina, and I’m praying for you too. If you’ll put God first in your life, He will put you first and also if you will try to read His Word, every day, I think you will become amazed at how He will guide you, and you will know you’re on the right path. May God Bless you….in Jesus Name, Amen!

    • The bible never said with the evidence of speaking in tongues that is mans addition you are saved by grace it is the gift of God. We accept what Christ did at calvary, the gospel of the kingdom is the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ resulting in entering the kingdom of God. Also the Spirit gave them utterance.

    • Keep praying and seeking God. As you stated, it is a gift from Him. Also, if you are not connected to a Bible believing church, then please do so. We can help get you connected if you need help finding a church. Please call our office at 1-800-363-8463, and ask our operator to help you find a church that is close to you. God bless.

  11. The Kingdom of God does & has always existed….as does God! It is certain this Kingdom of God refers to the Creation by God of worldly abodes for his children! The Urantia Book refers to a master universe and 7 super universes in existence as the whole of the creation by God. The Lucifer Rebellion which occurred involved 3 star systems of which Lucifer was the sovereign of one……this was a rebellion from the ruler of the local universe which is one of several comprising one of the super universes……Earth along with it’s star system is about to be readmitted into the Kingdom of God which means Revelation is in full swing to rid the world of evil doers by the forces of God which will battle the forces of the Red Dragon (Armegaddon), Judgement Day, Rapture, is all true …..their space crafts fill the night skies in the northwest & around the world even in the daytime are seen allot now! These are the end times…..Blessed are those who names are written in the book of life that they might be saved from the second & final death in the fiery lake of the bottomless pit!

  12. The “Kingdom of God” will occur when King Jesus returns to Jerusalem again :
    Born again Believers in Jesus Christ are also in the Kingdom of Heaven in this age and will return with Jesus Christ;

    • The Kingdom of God was born when Jesus was crucified. The Church is the Kingdom of God, so therefore, the Kingdom of God is already her and She is within us. Since God gave us free will, we can choose to be a member or not. Remember, Satan may be the “prince” of this world, but God is the King. He always was, is and will always be. AND, Jesus promised that the “gates of Hell” will not prevail against Her. Considering all the tribulations and scandals the Church has been through, people can’t believe She still stands. The answer to that is: We don’t leave Jesus because of Judas!! Hence, the “gates of Hell” will NOT prevail against Her. God bless.

  13. My heart aches that so many believers have not been taught the Kingdom of God message. What happened to bible study in our churches? Why aren’t we talking about end time events. I was blessed that at my former church my pastor taught us about end time events. We studied Thessalonians about the rapture and many books of Revelations. I am grieving for those that are not being taught truth, but at the same this points to the return of Christ. God has been showing me and making me revisit His basic truths about Christian living. For this season of my life, this is what the Lord has spoken to me to share with others… these are paraphrased1) don’t put new wine in old wineskins 2) narrow is the gate 3) trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight and 4) we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, that God prepared in advance for us to do…I’ve been walking with lord for 19 years, but was introduced to him about 30 years ago. I am reborn again, filled with the Holy Spirit, and doing good works. But, this is about maturity. When God brought these verses to me, Kingdom living and doing is what stands out. Accepting the gospel truth should bring about new wineskins, we are to enter in the narrow gate — beware of false teaching and false prophets, we are in a time of counterfeit Christianity. We have to know what differentiates God’s kingdom from religions and counterfeit Christianity. We have trust in God and submit all to Him. He will make out paths straight — once again, narrow is the gate. Then, we can do the work that God has ordained in advance for us to do. We are then fruitful obeying the Lord and going and doing what He says as we have built a foundation and are on the straight path maturing each day in Christ. We are to be disciples and make disciples preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. I agree with all I read above and I pray that I witness AND make disciples based on the foundational TRUTH of God’s Word not with words that teach self reliance and self gratitude, many want selfish needs fulfilled and met by the church. Oh Lord, I cry out, let us deny ourselves and live for you. Let it begin with me and let me spread it to others…the Kingdom of God is at hand.

  14. And of course, whithin being born again, and the baptism of water – then fire.But one should not look at these as like a list to check off, for there can be other ways of “not” achieving eternal life, such as not being able to forgive and even let go of trespasses of one’s self and others .Forgiveness is important and with that, the love of God can have the compassion and mercy needed. Casting away any hatred within ones self and earnestly meaning it is important, that includes the want of vengence and conflict. How can one earnestly forgive if revenge or vengence/conflict is on ones mind??? Then there is doing works, with faith, and that will build up grace . Basically – be like Jesus, not just for a time, but in all understanding throughout ones life…-.

  15. Thank you so much, I love the word of God, I am filled with the Holy Ghost, and very day I give thanks unto my Lord Jesus for the gift. Acts 2:38

  16. Help me understand…ref john 3..Jesus szaid unless u r born again you can not see or enter kingdom of God. So my how is it.that those who make it alive out.of battle of Armageddon be able to live in the kindom of God? If I’m understanding correctly the “kingdom of God dvd”. Thanks for response and help with clearity. In Christ.Nell

      • Thank you…so are you saying, that there will be no need for them to have been “born again”
        the way they would have had to be before this(Armageddon) took place. The repentance,baptism, received Holy Ghost…born again experience, is obsolete at that time?

        • Throughout all of the different dispensations, God has always had a plan of salvation that was coupled with belief and faith. For Adam and Eve, it was tending to the garden, walking with God, and not eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. For Noah, it was believing that the rain was coming and to get onto the ark. From Moses until Jesus, it was belief in and following the law. So, all this is saying is that there will be a form of salvation that everyone will have to go through during the 1,000 year reign of Christ; We just don’t know what it is yet.

  17. Jesus is the truth, I am the life, the way and truth..We must obey his word, John 3:3 we must be born again of the water and spirit to see the kingdom of heaven.
    The name of the father son and holy ghost is Jesus, The Lord is one. I am so thankful, Jesus has revealed the truth to me…God bless you, In Jesus Name.

    • The name of the Father,Son and Holy Ghost is NOT Jesus. They are 3 seperate members of the Godhead and they are ONE GOD. Blessed Trinity.

      • Yes, the Bible says that there is one God. But not one god-head comprised of three separate deities. The Bible is clear on this fact. Bible says that there is none besides Him: Isaiah 44:6,8; Isaiah 45:5,6,21; Isaiah 47:8,10; Hosea 13:4; Zephaniah 2:15. Bible says that there is none with Him, Deuteronomy 32:39. The Bible says that there is none like Him, 2 Samuel 7:22 and Deuteronomy 46:9. The Bible also says that the Father will become the Son. So God Himself came down in flesh to become our savior. God bless.

  18. The Bible mentions “heaven” in the New Testament 277 times, so I don’t think the Kingdom of God is the same as the place called Heaven. Again, I wouldn’t argue the point, but to me, I think the best understanding I have of the Kingdom of God is found in Ephesians 3:15, “Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” There is a FAMILY in Heaven. I think the Kingdom of God is the family of God. That is my humble opinion. One must be born-again to enter into the family of God. Jesus said the Kingdom of God is within us, i.e., the saved… we are part of God’s family. That’s how I look at it.
    The Greek word for “kingdom” refers to God’s authority. Satan is the god of this sinful world; but God reigns Supreme! To be a part of God’s Kingdom, one must obey God’s Word. Those who have been born-again have entered into God’s Kingdom already. Every believer already has eternal life. A kingdom must have a King. Jesus is our King. To be a part of God’s Kingdom means that we are on His side, we have been washed in the blood of the Lamb, we are part of the family in Heaven.
    If one reads the various Scriptures in the Bible, it seems that the Kingdom of God has several applications and meanings in a broader sense. For example: Luke 22:18 says, “For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.” This Scripture teaches that the Kingdom of God is a future coming event. Yet, Jesus said in Luke 17:21 that “the kingdom of God is within you.” So there seems to be some confusion. I think the answer is clearly that the term, Kingdom of God, has several applications in the Bible; but it all comes down to being part of God’s family, i.e., a child of God.
    I think it is safe to say in general terms that the Kingdom of God refers to God’s rule, power and sovereignty as King. We are His family, heirs with Christ to the Kingdom, and present citizens of Heaven. We are strangers and pilgrims passing through this temporal life.

    • I agree with you to a point…So where will there be hope of eternal life? here on earth with Jesus as ruler? or will there be two places that we could be looking at…Such as…those that don’t go with the rapture up to heaven will stay on earth and face what’s to come, and those that don’t die will then be residents on this ‘heaven on Earth?” I believe this could happen…For I like the idea that once ‘born again’ we are in our hearts residing with Jesus and waiting for his coming, with the hope that we will receive eternal life…SOMEWHERE…here on earth or as Jesus so said to the robber next to him as he was being crucified…”And indeed, we have been condemned justly, for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man has done nothing criminal.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 He replied to him, “Amen I say to you today you will be with me in Paradise.” 23:39-43

    • Thank you Gilbert! That did help to shine a bit more light on this subject. I had that thought myself.
      Wondering if the kingdom of God and heaven are considered to different places for different period…like maybe heaven is where we will reside after the millennium; whether it (heaven) be here on earth or in the heavens above.
      Thanks again

  19. I believe that since Jesus said many times that the kingdom of God was at hand. I believe that Jesus(God with us) is the kingdom of God. Believing in him and walking after him is the kingdom. How he wants us to teach our fellow man as he has treated us. Mankind Loving and helping each other and giving praise to God. As it will be when the new Jerusalem comes.

  20. The word for ‘within’ can also be translated “in the midst of.” The kingdom was among them because Jesus was there near them of course and He is the way to the kingdom. This lines up better with other verses that show the kindom of God is a literal kingdom that will be establishe by Christ on earth.
    Rev 11:15 says “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
    So Christ will rule on earth. Furthermore, Rev 5:10, “And have made us king and priests to our God;
    And we shall reign on the earth,” shows that the saints will rule the earth with Christ.

  21. The Kingdom of God is not a geographical location but it is the rule/reign of Jesus in our lives. It is allowing the will of Jesus to be done in our lives. ‘And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you’ (Luke 17:20-21).

    • then where did Jesus go after he left the Tomb? all eyes saw him raise up to heaven to be with his Father. and He also stated that when the time is here for his rule, ALL will see Him descend…so, where is he descending from? …..Heaven, which to me is an obvious answer.

      So, I believe that there are two places. One, which is heaven, where God will reside and rule the angles and the 144,000 and whomever is raptured up there, and Jesus will reign down on earth, with those that are left.

      We will then spend 1000 years getting the earth into a paradise, for those then that make it thru the 2nd ‘trial’ where we then will live here on earth for eternity.

      Yes, I believe the “Kingdom of God is within you, but I wonder if that Jesus used this phrase as a sample that one must have the LOVE of the Lord within you in order to live eternally with either Him or his Father in heaven, it’s like one saying to someone, “I love you with all my heart” and then proving it thru their actions…One has the YEARNING to be with Jesus and His Father in their heart, with no, ands’, ifs, or buts, and this to me is the meaning of “Kingdom of Heaven.”

  22. the end of the world the begining of new world in holines with God.Death is a transformation into enternity,whether death or life.You decide that now through the life you live on earth.The kingdom of God is at hand!!!!

  23. Kingdom of god is inside you ………..We are the hands and feet of jesus christ …….We have the choice to overcome evil with good and make a difference here and now ……..When jesus disciples asked him teach us how you pray …………First we pay respect of course to God “our Father who art in heaven Hallowed be your name ………Your kingdom on earth as it is in heaven…………. See Heaven has never ending grace and love what more does it need ……Jesus simply said Let your kingdom your grace your mercy your love your forgiveness ……. that’s in heaven Come on Earth just as it is in heaven Now !!!!!! Earth needs Grace forgivenes mercy kindness …God gave us freewill to choose Good or Evil and we as believers have a duty (faith without works is dead (No action) It’s your actions that show belief faith works in christ here now !! We are to act on a situation just as Jesus did ………Heal others ….overcome evil with good …………Instead most of us including me destroy others by temptation…………. In the beginning god bestowed blessings to Adam and Eve Mankind…………That same blessings happened when God came born as a Man .His teachings taught us I’m not going to do everything for you………..I will help and provide and bless you ………But it’s mankind’s duty to continue good over evil …..I showed you jesus taught but gave the disciples power to perform miracles and baptize and “Spread the Good News ………Jesus died for all mankind sins All…. Mankind we have a choice of obedience by Actions ….. Not just words and No action………. Jesus is God and he is coming back to teach us once again and he will rule here on earth for 1000 years then we will have one last Battle with Evil before it is destroyed forever and then all things are New ….New Heaven on Earth……….. See when you overcome evil from your pasts and Repent Turn from old ways …You are New And after Jesus teaches us again we will be transformed meaning New those that choose to Obey ……….. God loves us ……We turn against him all of us ….. He paid the price ……The wage of Sin is death……..But jesus said not all will die before my return ……..God never changes …………We do .We have that freewill to change our ways with help prayer and guidance……But Do we ? Instead Mankind rebels against God throughout Biblical History……..And it’s happening even Now Today ……..So God is gonna say enough and return to Teach us once again ……….. Are you ready for the truth ?

    • The kingdom of God will be established on earth with Christ ruling. That is precisely what the Preacher explained with bible quotes. It is awesome. The thing to do is to go out in obedience and proclaim it while also teaching those who do not know, how to make it to be part of that glorious time.

  24. Shalom!
    God`s mesage to this world is the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven, they are the same. The church are “the called out” of this world, but still in this world. The true believers represent as ambassadors the Kingdom, which is in them, if Jesus Christ is their King and Lord. They not only proclaim the Kingdom to come, but also manifest it by their deeds. Their blessed hope is the return of their King and the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth, where joy, peace and rightessness reigns.
    God bless! Benjamin

  25. when Jesus spoke to the Pharisees and said: “the kingdom of God is within you,” He was NOT saying that there was any such thing within the hearts of those demanding self-righteous hypocrites… the better translation would be: “the kingdom of God is among you.” Jesus is the King of the Kingdom of God… they were looking at the Kingdom when they saw Jesus!

  26. You did not speak, either have you written this messages… let me tell you what you deed.

    You Open your mount and the voice of the lord came forth. you lay your hand on the keyboard, and the lord God type through you.

    He truly lives in you. continue to open your mount and the lord God will continue to voice out through you. in Jesus name Amen.

  27. You are right on and I can understand the prophecies, even the symbols of the nations as I had figured most of them over the years of reading the bible. The feet mingled with clay seems to me represents fragility. Clay is not strong, will not hold up under a storm (wind and rain and floods), such as some churches and incorrect doctrine. My thoughts today. You are so very annointed.

  28. WE AS CHRISTIANS HAVE THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.WE HAVE THE SAME AUTHORITY LIKE ADAM HAD AND JESUS HAS.WE HAVE AUTHORITY FOR PROSPERITY,HEALTH,AND OVER THE ENEMY.WHAT EVER WE BIND ON EARTH IS BOUND IN HEAVEN, AND WHATEVER WE LOOSE IN THE EARTH WILL BE LOOSE IN HEAVEN. IF WE AS CHRISTIANS LEARN HOW THE KINGDOM OF GOD OPERATES, WE WOULD NOT HAVE ANY HUNGRY PEOPLE OR POVERTY. OUR DESTINY AND ASSIGNMENT IS TO FORWARD THE KINGDOM OF GOD UNTIL WE GO TO BE WITH OUR LORD.

    • The church can’t fix the worlds problems. Jesus said “in this life ye will have troubles’. We can’t fix poverty and famine Jesus said “the poor you will have with you always’. Until God takes the church out and sets up his throne these problems will exist.

      God Bless Nick

  29. The Kingdom of God is written in God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation (O.T.to N.T.)and will be found when you search diligently and with your whole heart.
    The Kingdom of God was ratified by Jesus Christ, His Only Begotten Son when He walked and taught in this earth.
    The Kingdom of God is sealed in each person who accepts God through Christ Jesus, by His Blessed Holy Spirit who teaches and guides us in all truth-The kingdom of God. For the Kingdom of God is within us. May each reader be Blessed by God.

  30. The Kingdom of God within us is peace,joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. Thanks to your awesome website that reveals the truth about the Kingdom of God. God is with you.

  31. John 18:36:

    “My Kingdom is not of this (Greek) kosmos (this world)… but NOW (Greek nun: “of this present time”) my Kingdom is not from here”

    Revelation 11:15:

    “And the seventh angel sounded. And there were great voices in Heaven, saying, The kingdoms of (Greek) kosmos (this world) have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. And He will reign forever and ever.”

    Luke 21:24:

    “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, UNTIL the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”

    Galatians 4:25:

    “For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which NOW (Greek nun: “of this present time”) is, and is in bondage with her children.”

    He was not going to restore the Kingdom to Israel at that time: Acts 1:6-8 – they had forgotten that 42 days earlier He had told them that “this gospel OF THE KINGDOM (Matthew 24:14) shall first be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, and (only) then shall the end come.”

  32. Now also remember when jesus told the pharisees the kingdom is near,, Jesus said you won’t see it here or there, because the kingdom of God is Inside Us… First look and find the kingdom And then you can take the plank out of your own eye and help remove that speck of sawdust in your brothers eye….

  33. The Kingdom is wherever the King is; now seated at the right hand of His Father. We are the Church, the bride, the body of Christ. Our relationship with Him is not King/Subject We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ and we will someday reign with Him when He returns to this earth to establish his Kingdom.

  34. I have to apologize for not understanding what Jesus was doing because blood atonement was used during the time of Moses. Jesus’ father is the God of Moses, and Jesus is more than just a man.

    • For He(God) made Him(Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him(Jesus)2cor 5:21
      Jesus was the final ultimate sacrifice fo all the sins of the world-ever.
      I encourage you to read the book of Hebrews. It will sshed a lot of light on this matter.

  35. Thank God for the Gospel! Keep spreading the the Gospel of Christ. In this day and time in the midst of all the destruction that’s going, we need to hear the “Good News of Christ.”
    Many are perishing without Him!

    God Bless You!

  36. I AM REALLY BLESSED TODAY ON YOUR TEACHINGS ON THE KINGDOM OF GOD.IN FACT I HAVE REALLY LEARNT A LOT.PREVIOUSLY I WAS CONTEMPLATING ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.I HAVE LEARNT THAT THEY ARE THE SAME.GOD BLESS YOU!

  37. I don’t believe the kingdom is yet to come. I believe it is and always has been. I believe we have constant access to that kingdom, through Christ, our king and priest.

    • The KOG is futuristic Kingdom brother for JESUS himself said plainly in Joh 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
      At present there is two kingdoms in this world now-LIGHT and Darkness,do you remember the gospel message is the KOG is near REPENT believe the GOOD NEWS

  38. I am very happy to learn that others believe that the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of heaven are synonymous. God has only one Kingdom. The Scriptures found in:Mt. 11:12-13 and in Luke 16:16 both address the same messenger, John. The time was the same, the man the same, the message the same, and the kingdom the same.
