I talk about the Kingdom of God a lot on my blog (here and here) and I just want to clarify a few things about what the Kingdom of God IS NOT in this post, before I go into too much detail about what actually constitutes the Kingdom of God.
First of all, the Kingdom of God is NOT issue oriented. It is not pro-life. It is not pro-family. It is not anti-Government. These are issues our politicians insist are vital and we use to distract ourselves.
Secondly, the Kingdom of God be confused with a current, physical reality. The Kingdom is not the USA, it is not Israel or Jerusalem. It is not your church, or your state, or your hometown. These are physical places that are inherently limited by their own physical nature.
The Kingdom of God is not
- Your Church
- The USA
- US Congress
- The Body of Christ/The Bride of Christ
- A Political Party
- Any organization, political, social or other that the human race has put together on this earth.
So what is the Kingdom of God? Stay tuned 😉 but in the meantime I’d love to hear any thoughts you have about it.
