  • Your friendly Preterist

    The Kingdom of God is simply where God lives in your heart and rules. Many will disagree with me, but that's okay.

  • I am thinking that the Kingdom of God is Heaven.

  • The "Kingdom of God" refers to the Christians on earth who serve him as well as the spiritual realm which is in battle all around us that we cannot see.

    Not to be confused with the "Kingdom of Heaven" The Kingdom of God is not heaven.

  • The Kingdom of God where God the Father resides on His Throne and Jesus His Son also resides.

  • It's a real Heavenly Kingdom/Government that will replace all earthly man made Governments.
    The apostle John, writing toward the close of the first century C.E., foresaw through a divine revelation the future time when Jehovah God, by means of his Son, would make a new expression of divine rulership. At that time, as in the time of David’s bringing the Ark up to Jerusalem, it would be said that Jehovah ‘has taken his great power and begun ruling as king.’ This would be the time for loud voices in heaven to proclaim: “The kingdom of the world did become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever.”—Re 11:15, 17; 1Ch 16:1, 31.

  • Kingdom of God is here on earth. Living in America under a democracy, we don't understand about Kingdom government. I m sure if Christain understood Kingdom ruling life would be better here on earth as it is in heaven.

  • There is so much to the phrase "the kingdom of God". It usually refers to God's kingdom in heaven, and those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior will spend eternity there with God when we die a physical death. When the trumpet sounds and Jesus returns for His people, those who are dead in Christ shall rise first, and those who remain will be caught up with Him in the air. When Jesus physically returns to earth, He will establish His kingdom on earth during His millennial reign. But again, "the kingdom of God" usually refers to His kingdom in heaven. Make no mistake though. He rules and reigns over everything in heaven and on earth.
