The Kingdom of God is NOW and RIGHT HERE and if you cannot SEE it then you do not know Jesus Christ and you are not born again. We read in John 3:3, Jesus spoke to a Jewish pharisee, Nicodemus, and He said to him: “Truly, truly, I say to you, UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.” 4Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” 5Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7“Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’”
Most Christians ARE NOT BORN AGAIN and that is why they cannot see the Kingdom of God. They do not KNOW Jesus Christ. They do not have the Holy Spirit because if you are born of the Spirit of God then you can SEE the Kingdom of God, you can HEAR the VOICE of Jesus, you LISTEN to Him, you FOLLOW Him, He GUIDES you and He REVEALS HIMSELF TO YOU.
We read in John 14:21, Jesus said:”He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I WILL LOVE HIM AND WILL DISCLOSE MYSELF TO HIM.” He will REVEAL Himself to you IF you FOLLOW and OBEY Him but you must FIRST BE BORN AGAIN. You must have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ IN YOU or else you CANNOT SEE THE Kingdom of God, you cannot be part of the Kingdom of God, you CANNOT ENTER the Kingdom of God, you CANNOT EXPERIENCE the Kingdom of God RIGHT NOW.
The Kingdom of God is NOW, not somewhere into the future, not somewhere when you die, then it is TOO LATE. If you are not part of the Kingdom of God right now then you are not born again, you do not know Jesus, YOU ARE LOST! You are still in your sins, you are not a child of God, YOU NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN and then you will SEE the Kingdom of God.
We read in John 14:23“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.” He is not talking about the Bible (word), He is talking about His WORD IN YOU AND ME, His Spirit IN US and us OBEYING Him. If we OBEY Him and FOLLOW Him then He will REVEAL HIMSELF TO US and Jesus and the Father will come and make their abode with us, will COME AND LIVE IN US. We will EXPERIENCE the Kingdom of God, but FIRST, Jesus Christ must be your LORD and MASTER on the THRONE of your life because Jesus Christ is KING, He is LORD. If He is not your LORD you cannot be part of His Kingdom. If you refuse to SERVE and OBEY Him then you are not of Him.
Most believers just want salvation, they don't want Jesus. They don't want to be part of the Kingdom of God and they are not, they are LOST! Have you become part of the Kingdom of God? Are you living IN His Kingdom? Are you doing His will every day? Are you serving the KING, Jesus Christ? Do you EXPERIENCE the Kingdom of God right HERE AND NOW? Has Jesus and the Father come and made their abode, their living place IN YOU? Are you part of the Kingdom of God RIGHT NOW?
May Jesus bless you.
