Is it possible to find the Kingdom of God?

Updated on December 17, 2012

Is it possible to find the kingdom of God?


There are various views of God and his Kingdom. Some people belief God dwells somewhere called heaven and that we can join him if we merit it by rightful living. There are few people that have a different view of heaven in that they belief heaven is within us while some people do not believe that heaven exists.


I wonder if anyone can help us to link these biblical statements about God’s kingdom made by Jesus Christ and his followers.


1) Jesus said, search ye first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness then every other things shall be added unto you.


2) Jesus again said neither can you say it is here or there for the kingdom of God is within you.


3) It is also written in the New Testament, your body is the temple of the living God.


4) Another that is similar to the one above is that God does not live in temples made of woods.


5) Jesus also said to his followers, to you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.


Of a truth, the kingdom of God is a mystery because not everyone knows it or beliefs in it and even those that belief may not really know how and where to find it. The first comment above is powerful because it suggests that finding that kingdom adds every other thing to us. Some people see this verse as finding a state of peace in which one has the ability to live in harmony first with himself and then with his fellow man. The idea of the kingdom of God being within us is one thing most Christians do not really talk about. I realize, as one that relates with people of various religious views, that it is the mystical groups that fully exploit this verse of the bible and they claim it is the very basic source of finding that supernatural powers which are able to give man all things. Their claim can be linked back to the first biblical promise of seeking God’s Kingdom and all other things being added to it.


The idea of our body being the temple of a living God may be understood as being pure so that God can relate directly with us. This is another option some mystics use in that some of them claim to go to the temple within if they want to communicate with their God. It is interesting for us to know how we can link the statements numbered above and if it can help us to trace the mysterious Kingdom of God with its powers and which only few claim to have found. Must the mystery of finding that kingdom be left for a few? Just as Jesus said, to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God. I think if all Christians will know the mystery of finding God’s Kingdom and it powers then they can all do what the followers of Jesus Christ did after the mystery was revealed to them.
