Romans 14:17

King James Version

17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; 

but righteousness, and peace, and joy 

in the Holy Ghost.

What is the "kingdom of God"?

What does the Bible say?

More precisely, what does JESUS say?

Matthew 12:28

King James Version

28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, 

then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Mark 1:14-15

King James Version

14 Now after that John was put in prison, 

Jesus came into Galilee, 

preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

Mark 4:26-29

King James Version

26 And he said, 

So is the kingdom of God, 

as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

27 And should sleep, 

and rise night and day, 

and the seed should spring and grow up, 

he knoweth not how.

28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; 

first the blade, then the ear, 

after that the full corn in the ear.

29 But when the fruit is brought forth, 

immediately he putteth in the sickle, 

because the harvest is come.

Mark 4:30-32

King James Version

30 And he said, 

Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? 

or with what comparison shall we compare it?

31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, 

which, when it is sown in the earth, 

is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, 

and becometh greater than all herbs, 

and shooteth out great branches; 

so that the fowls of the air may lodge 

under the shadow of it.

Luke 10:9-12

King James Version

9 And heal the sick that are therein, 

and say unto them, 

The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, 

and they receive you not,

 go your ways out into the streets of the same, 

and say,

11 Even the very dust of your city, 

which cleaveth on us, 

we do wipe off against you: 

notwithstanding be ye sure of this, 

that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

12 But I say unto you, 

that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, 

than for that city.

Luke 11:20

King James Version

20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, 

no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

Luke 16:16

King James Version

16 The law and the prophets were until John: 

since that time the kingdom of God is preached, 

and every man presseth into it.

Luke 17:20-21

King James Version

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, 

when the kingdom of God should come, 

he answered them and said, 

The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, 

Lo here! or, lo there! 

for, behold, 

the kingdom of God is within you.

JESUS says the kingdom of GOD is within us.

What an amazing declaration!

Who can enter the kingdom of heaven?

That's for the next post.
