Q. Some of my believing friends are saying the Kingdom of God hasn’t come to them yet but I’m saying when you repent and accept Jesus Christ you’ve entered the Kingdom. I admit that the fullness of God hasn’t dwelt in men yet but I believe that because I’m striving to live according to the instructions of His Word from day to day, then I’m living the Kingdom life right now. Please comment on the above.
A. The Kingdom comes in two phases. First is the spiritual phase as mentioned in Luke 17:21. This is what you’re experiencing. It’s open to all believers but according to Romans 12:1-2 we have to decide to live there, as you have. Most believers are still living in the world, as your friends apparently are, and are not experiencing Kingdom life. The second phase is the physical one, which begins at the rapture/resurrection. All believers will enter that one.
