This is a study into THE HOLY BIBLE to establish the important question WHERE IS THE KINGDOM TODAY? The first question we ask is, What Kingdom? Today there are many Kingdoms, but certainly there are not so many Kingdoms as there used to be. In fact, come to think of it, there are now precious few. But which is THE Kingdom that concerns us most, above all Kingdoms ? It is, of course, the Kingdom of God because its citizens have eternal life. But when that time comes, will it be set up anew, or will it take on from an existing Kingdom which has already been set up on the earth by God? We are commanded by Jesus... “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things (ie. necessities of life) will be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) Now todays Church will tell us that the Kingdom of God is within us, and that Jesus is ruling us from within our hearts. This abstract idea of the Kingdom has been taken from a quote in Luke 17:21, where Jesus says to the Pharisees, “Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you”. The Greek word for ‘within’ is ‘ENTOS’ which means “ in the midst”, Dr Bullinger says in his Critical Lexicon... “Within your midst, within your borders or country. Certainly the Kingdom of God was not within the Pharisees individually, but within their midst, as shown by the presence of Jesus, the King, if they would have Him to reign over them.” This makes sense, because these hypocrite Jews certainly did not have the Kingdom in their hearts, and were quick to dispose of their rightful King, even after seeing His miracles and acknowledging that He had come God (John 3:1). So, they had “ THE KING ” but refused to accept His right to rule. They also had “ THE KINGDOM LAND ” of the promise within their borders. And lastly, they had the LAW OF THE KINGDOM which they refused to administer, but replaced it by the man-made ‘BOOK OF TRADITION — THE TALMUD’. So, if the KINGDOM OF GOD is not within our individual bodies, could it still be found in a physical form today, waiting in abeyance for its fulfilment King? Let us go back to the start to find out what has happened to it and where it is today.
