It’s Here by Dan Axtell

Do you know what the Kingdom of God is? Many Christians are not sure. Is the Kingdom something that
is coming in the future? Is it already here? Some people say Kingdom when they mean church, others
substitute it for heaven.
Here’s a definition: The Kingdom of God is present whenever the people of God come under the rule of
God in a way that produces the peace of God.
When Jesus was asked 2000 years ago about the coming Kingdom, we read in Luke 17:20-21 that Jesus
replied, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’
or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”
The Kingdom of God is here. You are part of it. The Church is part of it. The kingdom of Satan is
operational as well. Two kingdoms in conflict. Which kingdom will you serve?
