What Is The Kingdom Of God?

There is a lot of confusion concerning the Kingdom of God in the world today. Some think God's Kingdom has not come yet, some think His Kingdom will return as a physical Kingdom in Jerusalem, and some say the Kingdom of God will return to this earth and remain forever. What I would like to do tonight is to answer the question, "What Is The Kingdom Of God?" The way we will answer this question is how we try to answer all spiritual questions on our program. By going to the Bible. As we go through our study tonight, please feel free to call in with your comments or questions about the Kingdom of God or about any other Bible question you might have.

Only by repenting and being baptized into the Lord Jesus Christ can anyone have their sins forgiven (Acts 2:37-39). Then and only then will the Lord add them to His Kingdom (Acts 2:47). What about you tonight?Have you obeyed the commandments of the King? Have you been baptized for the remission of your sins? If you have not, we plead with you to read and obey the commandments of King Jesus Christ before it is too late. Please check the scriptures out for yourselves to see what God would have you to do to be granted citizenship in His Kingdom. We hope to see you next time on "Speaking the Truth in Love".
