I truely believe there are a large number of different understandings of what God Kingdom really is. I am wondering how many out there have the same understanding. What do you think God's Kingdom is and is not?

Useful. However, I wondered whether the brother wanted a sense of life's goal/purpose, of salvation/heaven, either from experience or one's interpretation. Perhaps he can help here.
manatita44- I am just looking for one's understanding or opinion of God's Kingdom based on Christ teaching of it.
PandN-I thank you for your answer
Very well written but I think that there is alot of points that you left out like having a close personal relationship with Jesus who is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords where God sees all and knows all and nothing is hidden.
Jesus’ kingdom is a heavenly kingdom (John 18:36 KJV); it does not arise from the world, but breaks in from outside the world, just as Jesus Himself came down from heaven on a mission from the Father.
Yes I agree that Jesus Kingdom does not arise from this world and breaks from outside this world but His Kingdom is also here on earth as well as in Heaven. His Kingdom is in the Heavenly dimension here on earth and many are walking in his kingdom
Jesus said before He died, "Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God. ( Mark 14:24-25). This makes it clear that the kingdom is not on earth yet.
He is here with us now and nobody will know who he is or what his name is or what it means but himself. He is here on earth now setting up his kingdom here on earth and his kingdom is here on earth now. I should know as I live in his kingdom daily.
The kingdom of God is a physical manifestation, but the invisible spiritual kingdom (grace) is the power of God that works through His bride.
Yes I agree with you as I am a part of the Bride of Christ and if you want to read more on that I have a couple books published on LuLu.com they are free and all you have to do is enter my name under search Jennifer Christopherson. Let me know.
Mystical love is the highest form of love between God and his creation.
Saint Theresa of Avila explained it as castles.
She's a hard read. But all these saints discovered the kingdom of God is within us.
Harishprasad- Thank you for your answer. Many blessings
jenchristopherson- great answer- Thank you.
Lor's- your answer reveals a lot. And I too believe the Kingdom of God is within. Jesus Christ said so Himself. But some my ask, How does that work? That's the part that is sometimes hard to explain. Thanks.
Rev- Are you aware that the very first ever GENTILE to teach on the Kingdom of God to his people is King Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon. Read the Book of Daniel. Chapter 4. Thanks for your answer.
