559 THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Every believer in Jesus Christ should recognize these words; ‘the kingdom of God is within you’.

These are Jesus’ direct words to the general public. He was in the presence of the Pharisees, probably in Jerusalem.

If you believe them, then you will understand that God’s kingdom is in all those who have accepted Jesus as their saviour (because Jesus IS the king of God’s kingdom and the only way into God’s kingdom.)

 John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

This is done in the spirit world, unseen by the human eye but evident by the fruit, which one displays in their everyday life.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Galatians 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

So, if the kingdom of God is IN YOU, should you not live and act like a child of God?

JESUS DID, and said;

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Now, I know it would be bold of us to preach to everyone we meet and say;

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Jesus was preaching to a Bible studying people, who knew God’s word well. Many of the people we will encounter will know little of God’s word and the truth of His salvation and kingdom.

That is where we, as citizens of God’s kingdom, come in. We are the experts that can tell them about, and show them, God’s truth, and His kingdom.

We may not be able to blurt out ‘repent and be saved’ but, if we have the mind of Christ, we can talk in such a way as to ‘show’ them God’s goodness and help them ‘see’ His truth.

Jesus used ‘water’ to explain the truth to the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well.

John 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

As Christians, WE HAVE THE WORDS PEOPLE NEED TO BE SAVED.

Philippians 2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

When we have the kingdom of God within US, everyone we are near means THEY ARE NEAR THE KINGDOM OF GOD, but they will not know it unless WE show and tell them about it.

Luke 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

The kingdom of God is here, on this earth and in the hearts of those, who love and serve Jesus and, when He comes, He is coming for this kingdom.

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Those who love and serve Jesus Christ are the kingdom of God. Go and tell the world; THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

YOU MAY BE THE ONLY PART OF GOD’S KINGDOM THAT SOME WILL SEE!
