So while there are many views of the Kingdom floating about these days, the Bible is clear: the Kingdom of God is the rule or reign of God.
It is not the church, or heaven, or moral reform, or the heart, or the future realm. It is God’s sovereignty in action against all the evil in the world! It came into the world in Christ. It is both present and future. Its arrival, however, was startling. It came as a mystery, in an unexpected form through the humble person and work of Jesus as the Suffering Servant who defeated sin, death, and Satan. It has set us free! It is the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises of redemption and the covenants of God.
