What is the Kingdom of God?
“Jesus’ Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of heaven, refers to the reign and rule of the Father that was inaugurated in Jesus and will be completely realized once God triumphs over Satan once and for all,” Peabody explains.
“But in the meantime, as we (the church) live between Jesus’ first coming to earth and His next, we live primarily not as Brits or Americans or Australians, but as citizens of the Kingdom of God. This is our new identity, the identity that supersedes all others as the ultimate reality of our existence. It is through this lens that we learn to see our lives and the world in which we live.”
