The Kingdom of God/Heaven has Already Arrived!

The Bible describes our need to be rescued from:

  1. SIN—-the power of sin.
  2. DEATH—-the penalty of sin.
  3. EVIL—-the product of sin.

When Jesus says the Kingdom of God is at hand, He’s describing the rescue mission that begins with His arrival and is reaching into the depths of humanity’s greatest challenge. The Kingdom of God is anywhere His rule and reign exists uncontested.

The refrain of Jesus’ proclamation is: THAT Kingdom reaches into our world.

But also when Jesus says, “The Kingdom of God is at hand,” He’s noting His presence. The Kingdom of God has arrived so closely you can touch it! The peace of God is within arm’s reach ! The Word of God has become flesh!
