Here's a very brief definition: The Kingdom of God is wherever God is King.
Guess what shape you will find in a diagram of the Kingdom? The triangle. The Kingdom of God is just another name for the Church!
The building of the church is the beginning of the kingdom of God, on earth. And the growth of the church is the spread of the kingdom. [As in the Stone becoming a Great Mountain.]
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 17:21)
If the body is not assembled till the head comes to its resting place, and if the temple construction doesn't start till the foundation is laid, when do you think the kingdom comes? When the King is set in place on the Holy Hill [Psalm 2]
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: . . . . (Revelation 12:10)
So now how would you define the Kingdom of God? Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost, that's another triangle.
Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy. (Psalms 132:8-9)
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Romans 14:17)
As I write this, in the summer of 2000, we are in the beginning of the third day. We read reports and prophecies that the manchild has come forth and the apostles are being gathered and that judgment is imminent. Get ready to look up for our redemption is coming. God has started to fulfill this word and confirm his covenant.
The Kingdom comes when the King comes The Kingdom comes where the King comes. That is when the King comes to his resting place in the midst of his people.
In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD. (Zephaniah 3:16-20)
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. (John 3:5-8)
