To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that “seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.”
- At its core, the kingdom of God is a direct expression of the many characteristics of the Godhead. It derives its nature from those whose kingdom it is.
- The kingdom of God is the dwelling place of God and the place from which his rule originates.
- Like God, his kingdom is eternal; without beginning and without end.
- The kingdom of God exists primarily within a spiritual realm. This realm, framed by the Godhead, can manifest itself within the physical realm.
- Interaction with the kingdom of God comes through the direct manifestation of that kingdom by the Godhead or by direct contact with members of the Godhead or their chosen representatives.
- Our current understanding of the Godhead is that it consists of Yahweh – God the Father, Yeshua – Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Redeemer of the world, and the Holy Spirit – the power of God.
- Flesh and blood, those of the physical realm, cannot inherit (possess) the kingdom of God. (Fourth Gospel 3:5-6; 1 Corinthians 15:35-50)
- Flesh and blood will dwell in Christ’s kingdom on earth where he reigns for 1000 years.
