    Where is the the Kingdom of God?

    Romans 14:17
    For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,

    "The Kingdom of God is within you."  I got that from a good source.

    Within those of us who have accepted Christ as our Savior.

    I agree with the first two answers, it is within you. You can't chase it on the outside. You can Meta-Neo (change the way you think) to allow the Fathers heart to be expressed in and thru you

    The Kingdom is where you are true to your best self and hunger for better still.   You will continue to find it by the spirit. even if it is sweet to the tongue but bitter to the belly. When you get to the point that you can place yourself on the altar without reservations then you know you are there.

    Be prepared for the scenery to constantly change.  Soon good will not be good enough. then take a step back and love the good. They aren't ready but mercy will eventually move them to see as you will.  Soon after that you will find teachers who are crazy peddling mysteries. love them but turn aside.  they will feel like fog and darkness.  Eventually you will find a master who will ask you to do and be perfect.  By then i hope you are ready.

    The Kingdom of God is within our hearts.

    According to the original Old Testament, kingdom of God will be established after the End of Days in 2874, on earth. It will be perpetual kingdom, where only the ones who follow the commandments will live. As for the pagans and idol worshipers, either they will be eliminated, or live in eternal abhorrence, depending which sins they have committed.

    Quote from original Old Testament, which wasn't edited by pagans:
    23. So he said, "The fourth beast [represents] a fourth kingdom [that] will be on the earth (Kingdom of Rome), which will be different from all the kingdoms, and it will devour the whole land and trample it and crush it.
    24. And the ten horns that [sprout] from that kingdom [represent] ten kings [that] will rise, and the last one will rise after them, and he will be different from the first (King Titus), and he will humble three kings.
    25. And he will speak words against the Most High (He converted people to his pagan God), and he will oppress the high holy ones (Jews), and he will think to change the times and the law, and they (Jews)  will be delivered into his hand until a time, two times, and half a time (An obscure term, which I researched and interpreted).
    26. And the judgment shall be established, and they will remove his dominion (Roman Empire) to be destroyed and annihilated until the end.
    27. And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under all the heavens will be given to the people of the high holy ones; its kingdom is a perpetual kingdom, and all dominions will serve and obey [it]." Book of Daniel 7/23-27

    The Kingdom of God is both on earth in a limited sense (through the Church and the Body of Christ, ie. Believers).

    In a fuller sense the Kingdom of God is also in heaven, with those that are already fully unified with God and Christ. 

    The fullness of the Kingdom of God will be realized at the second coming with the establishment of a new heaven on earth. 

    The Kingdom of God cannot be complete on earth, nor in the hearts of believers alone, because both are flawed and imperfect, and the Kingdom of God cannot be imperfect.

    As a believer in the faith, I'll be honest and say I really don't know; however, God promises us that we'll know his plan one day when we are no longer in this earth.  Metaphors are used quite frequently, especially throughout the New Testament, but it's very difficult to decipher just exactly what God really meant - anyone who says they know for certain is lying!

    The Kingdom of God is wherever He wants it to be. He's the Creator God, YHVH, and He created "all this" just for us.

    But all this, is just temporary.

    1st Corinthians chapter 15:
    Verse 42 - "So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:"

    This body, this "tent", is a temporary dwelling. God dwelling at the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant, was housed in a "tent" at the center of the camp of Israel. This prophecy of Sukkot fulfilled, was when Jesus Christ was born, and God dwelled among humankind.

    Verse 43 - "It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:"

    The body will die, according to The Law, because by The Law all die. Except for one person in all of history, only one died a sinless death. In the redeeming power of Jesus' sinless blood, as the lamb of God, we are resurrected into spiritual bodies. They are not bound by the sinful nature of these flesh bodies.

    Verse 43 - "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body."

    That should clear it up, if it wasn't clear the first time.

    Praise to God that His Kingdom is "not of this world" (John 18:36). Can you imagine trying to serve a sinless God, while in a sinful form? We just can't do it. Which is why He provided us a "way out", Just like He did for Abraham all those years ago, when God provided a ram in Isaac's place.

    God's official "way out", is our guaranteed path to victory over death itself, is very simple: Jesus Christ. That's all! If you believe, then you don't even have to worry about death. It's a peaceful feeling, but one that we should not be complacent in.

    "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." - 1st John chapter 3, verse 4.

    The Law did not die with Jesus, it was resurrected, and made into something perfect. A transgression of The Law, is still a sin. But He forgives us, and so the sin is made void, not the Law. The Law you broke is still there, and it will still be a sin to do that after you've been forgiven.

    "She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." - John chapter 8, verse 11.

    If Jesus died to abolish The Law, then we have a hard time telling people how their sins are keeping them from entering the Kingdom of God, because if there is no Law then there is no sin.

      Is someone willing to test their hypothesis by  comparing it to the old testament or is everyone going to ignore it by using their definition of the atonement which the claim not to understand as an umbrella.

    Amen, Iamsam.  Very true, the Kingdom of God is ever present to those who truly believe in the loving Words of God in Jesus, that through the many people, past and present, who have been enlightened to see God's fullness in us, remaining humble and obedient to Him who have created us all, ever respecting and ever reverent to life, ever forgiving and ever loving as God has been ever forgiving and loving, yet staying responsible and concerned as we never fear in sharing the light of Christ with others who remain in the dark, who remain blinded by evil ways that bind the ego and remain imprisoned by pride, vanity, lust and malice where the evil one laughs out loud  in revelry as we may remain bounded from these  prison walls of our sinfulness that do nothing but deceive us as they can never satisfy and fill us, rather, empty us of love, and cause us to deny what is true and noble in the crucified Christ in us all - waiting to be revealed and released in the full power of His love, mercy and grace.

    And for those who continue to see all the good things in this life as God's blessings, and yes, all but coming from His goodness, as we may remain faithful to Him and in Him alone, for in His Words lie the naked truth of our being, may we remain empowered by the Holy Spirit, and render Satan and his evil cohorts powerless, for in Jesus we may see a glimpse of God's Kingdom in us, and in this life we may feel heavenly joy and peace that the Holy Spirit brings, ever content in His loving care and protection as we hunger and thirst for righteousness, that NO PHYSICAL DEATH may HINDER US to PROCLAIM HIS GLORY ON EARTH AND IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN.

    In Matthew 5:6-7, Jesus said in his sermon among a multitude at the mount, "Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied."

    And in Matthew 5:8-11, Jesus said further from among the 8 Beatitudes, "Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

    It's in a dimension where our arms can embrace one another with love but have no value as weapons.

    It's a place that touches us here as the Holy Spirit fills us so often.

    "Behold God's dwelling is with the human race. He will dwell with them and they will be his people and God himself will always be with them {as their God}. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and their shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, {for} the old order has passed away." Revelation 21:3-4

    The kingdom of God is within you. You´re part of the kingdom of God since you were born. The object of creating the first human beings in this world was the original God´s plan to establish his kingdom in this world

    Unfortunately, the first humans in this world did not obey God´s original plan and that´s what have us all trapped in this world.

    If you look in the very deep inside of you, you should be able to find the kingdom of God.

    The Kingdom of God is somewhere behind the smiling eyes of a child.  It was built by the very spirit who chose love to be the greatest power. The streets are paved with freedom.  The walls are built with hope. The four turrets of the castle are giving, helping, healing and sharing.  Within the kingdom, kindness rules every heart without rules. Sweet bliss of joy, fills the halls.  True peace.

    The Kingdom of God is composed of His family.  His family is composed of those who spend their lives seeking not the riches of this life, but rather seek the blessings of obedience to His commandments regardless of the costs of doing so in mortality.

    The Kingdom of God is within you. It does not have a physical location, because God and creation are not physical. Only the created are physical -- made of space-time, energy and mass.

    Ego is the blindfold which makes us depend upon physical methods for perception and action. This is the "Darkness."

    Removing ego with humility, responsibility, fearlessness, confidence and love allows the true self (soul, immortal spirit, Holy Ghost) within to awaken and no longer depend upon physical methods for perception and action. This is the "Light" of Truth and the Kingdom.

    "My Kingdom is no part of this World." (John 18:36)  This is what Jesus said to the Roman ruler Pontius Pilate.
    God's Kingdom under Christ will not rule through human agencies. Jesus repeatedly referred to the Kingdom of God as "the Kingdom of the heavens." (Matthew 4:17, 5:3, 10, 19, 20). God's Kingdom therefore, is a heavenly government.
    I hope this helps you.

    The Kingdom of God is available to all of us. You have to be willing to accept it and you will then become part of it. Your life will be changed. You may not notice it at first. There will be no flashes of lightning or singing choirs of angels, but you will be part of it and as you become more comfortable being a part of that kingdom, you will learn just how much it means to you.
