Once again I am feeling stirred and provoked to more fully understand the present day reality that the Kingdom of God already exists. The truth is there is the kingdom (realm) of the world as we see it and then there is the truth/reality that another kingdom (realm) of a spiritual reality is very much in existence.
I believe if we can truly learn to live our every day lives in the Kingdom of God we would see far more manifestations of this Kingdom.
Here is what Jesus said about the this realm of His Kingdom
Jesus tells us that in order to see the reality of this Kingdom a person has to be born again. So it can be seen.
Jesus tells us that we can actually enter this Kingdom now.
The conclusion is that there is today an actual spiritual Kingdom we can see, enter and live in. The Kingdom of God was, is and is to come.
The Kingdom was: Notice the words dominion, subdue they infer that they were to govern
In Genesis 3:23-24 God kicks Adam and Eve out of the Kingdom
The Kingdom is: See above John 3
The kingdom is to come:
More to come but for now let’s consider that we are to live our lives in our Father’s Kingdom and to see it manifesting in our every day lives. From Genesis we were to govern the Kingdom (it was taken from man), Jesus restores the Kingdom and now we must learn its reality and our power and authority that has been transferred us.
