A king ruling over an insurmountable kingdom was predicted in the Old Testament: Psalms 2:6-7; 110:1-3; 132:11; Isaiah 9:6-7; Daniel 2:44; 7:13-14. An angel announced to Mary that the child to whom she would give birth would be the king of that kingdom (Luke 1:30-33). Jesus is King today (Acts 17:7).

 And yet, there are many who do not believe the kingdom of Christ was established during NT times, and that it exists today. They look for a kingdom that is yet to come. Who is right? "What saith the scripture?" (Galatians 4:30)


  • Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom - Matthew 4:23 (Luke 9:11); 13:10-11; 18-29

  • Jesus announced the approach of the kingdom - Matthew 4:17; 12:28.

  • Jesus identified His kingdom as His church - Matthew 16:16-19.

  • Jesus identified the nature of the kingdom - John 18:36 (Spiritual, Luke 17:20-21; Superior, Daniel 2:44; Eternal, Luke 1:33).

  • Jesus prophesied the establishment of the kingdom - Luke 12:32; Mark 9:1 (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:6-8; 2:1-4 (47).

  • Apostles proclaimed the present existence of the kingdom - Acts 20:25; Colossians 1:13; Revelation 1:9 (1 Thessalonians 2:11).

  • The kingdom is composed of those who have received remission of sins - Revelation 1:5-6; 5:9-10.

  • Our salvation depends on entering the kingdom - Luke 16:16; John 3:3-5.

  • Our daily goal must be to put the kingdom first in our lives - Matthew 6:33; Luke 9:62.

The kingdom of Christ exists today. The kingdom of Christ is the church of Christ. It is mighty and its glory is secure. We must live in Christ's kingdom NOW in order to enter the eternal kingdom (heaven) LATER (2 Peter 1:10-11). Obey the gospel call and enter the kingdom of God! (Acts 2:37-41, 47; Colossians 1:13)
