So begins a ten-part series. Though difficult to believe at first, our truly understanding the kingdom of God can just about clarify all of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. So then, what is the kingdom? Can we define it biblically, or is the topic just too complicated? What does it mean for us today?
We are living in eternity right now. We just don’t see it yet, because the kingdom of God is not fully manifested—for now.
Yes, the kingdom is partly manifested right now, but it is seen with the eyes of faith and in visible signs like salvation of souls and bodily healings and demon expulsions and harmony in the household–all done by the power of the Spirit.
When we understand it, we can know how God is working across the planet today. And we can understand Christ’s parables that proclaim its mystery.
Eternal life and the kingdom of God belong together, and you can experience them right now.
