Is God’s kingdom on earth, or is it in heaven?
“And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19).
At the mention of the kingdom of heaven, we will imagine there will be fields of gold and walls of jade and doors of pearl, full of yearning for it.
Today's Bible verse is Matthew 13:45-46. This parable of the Lord Jesus is a warning to us. For several thousand years, numerous Christians are eager to enter the kingdom of heaven, but no one can easily enter it.
Where is the kingdom of God? The Lord Jesus clearly told us that God's kingdom is on the earth, not in heaven. God's will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Bible Verse,"The Lord Jesus said, 'Not every one that said to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 7:21).
The Lord Jesus said, “Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Mat 6:9-10).
Many Christians believe the kingdom of God is of course in heaven, but we see that God’s kingdom is on earth from the two verses above and the verse in revelation 11:15, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ.” So, is the kingdom of God in heaven or on earth?
