    What is God’s Kingdom?

    What makes Jesus an ideal King?—MARK 1:40-42.

    The Kingdom of God is a heavenly government. It will replace all other governments and will cause God’s will to be done in heaven and on earth. The news about God’s Kingdom is good. Soon God’s Kingdom will satisfy man’s need for good government. It will unite everyone living on earth.—Read Daniel 2:44; Matthew 6:9, 10; 24:14.

    A kingdom must have a king. Jehovah appointed his Son, Jesus Christ, to be King of His Kingdom.—Read Revelation 11:15.

    Why is Jesus the ideal King?

    God’s Son is the ideal King because he is kind and he is firm for what is right. (John 1:14) Also, he is powerful enough to help people because he will rule over the earth from heaven. After he was resurrected, he ascended to heaven and sat down to wait at Jehovah’s right hand. (Hebrews 10:12, 13) Finally, God gave him power to begin ruling.—Read Daniel 7:13, 14.

    Who will rule with Jesus?

    A group called “the holy ones” will rule with Jesus in heaven. (Daniel 7:27) The first holy ones chosen were Jesus’ faithful apostles. Jehovah has continued to select faithful men and women as holy ones until now. Like Jesus, they are resurrected with a spiritual body.—Read John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:42-44.

    How many people go to heaven? Jesus called them a “little flock.” (Luke 12:32) They will finally number 144,000. They will rule over the earth with Jesus.—Read Revelation 14:1.

    What happened when Jesus began ruling?

    God’s Kingdom began ruling in 1914. * Jesus’ first action as King was to throw Satan and his demons down to the earth. Satan became furious and began causing trouble throughout the earth. (Revelation 12:7-10, 12) Since then, mankind’s woes have severely increased. Wars, famines, epidemics, and earthquakes are all part of a “sign” that the Kingdom will soon take full charge of earth’s affairs.—Read Luke 21:7, 10, 11, 31.

    What does God’s Kingdom accomplish?

    By means of a global preaching work, God’s Kingdom is already uniting a great crowd of people from all nations. Millions of meek people are becoming subjects of Jesus. God’s Kingdom will protect them when it destroys the present wicked system of things on earth. So all who want to benefit from God’s Kingdom should learn to be obedient subjects of Jesus.—Read Revelation 7:9, 14, 16, 17.

    Subjects of God’s Kingdom in the Paradise earth

    During a period of 1,000 years, the Kingdom will accomplish God’s original purpose for mankind. The earth will become a global paradise. Finally, Jesus will hand the Kingdom back to his Father. (1 Corinthians 15:24-26) Do you know someone whom you would like to tell about God’s Kingdom?—Read Psalm 37:10, 11, 29.

    The Kingdom of God is the expression of Jehovah’s universal sovereignty toward his creatures, or the means used by him to express that sovereignty.

    This term is used particularly to designate the manifestation of God’s sovereignty through the royal government headed by his Son, Jesus Christ.

    Kingdom” may refer to the rulership of the one anointed as King or to the earthly realm ruled by that heavenly government.

    Yes you can say it's in your heart, but it's also a heavenly government, that God put in place to rule over us. Here is an article explaining what the heavenly kingdom exactly is. But in order for one to atcually believe that gods kingdom atcually exist would have to find it in their heart first to believe in it... So you are right.

    Three thousand years ago the "civilized" world was divided into Kingdoms.

    So the prophets and Bible writers had to give a Kingdom to The God of Abraham...

    It was in fashion at the time...

    The Universal Consciousness - there was no vocabulary 2000 years ago to explain this - so they called it "kingdom of god".

    “We souls are a single unit of consciousness that stems from the Creator’s consciousness. This is known as “Infinite Consciousness.” All units of consciousness are interconnected to all other types of consciousness. Everything that exists is called the “Creator” (also known as the Source). Infinite Consciousness is the universal energy that exists everywhere or “All that is.”

    Each one of us was given a divine mission – go away and explore ourselves. LEARN, GROW, AND UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN CREATED and eventually rejoin the Creator after having learnt everything that is infinitely possible to experience and having acquired the highest understanding of creation itself or “all that is.” Your path of evolution is unique to you, but you are not separate from other souls, rather your individuality is your unique story and journey to understand creation.

    Your mission is achieved by ascending your individual consciousness through each of the dimensions within the universe. To begin your mission, you had to experience a variety of intense “third density” (i.e. the physical universe) lessons on earth, including selfishness, pain, poverty, love, anger, etc. Earth is a planet to begin evolving your consciousness at the infant level, until you consciously realize this illusion and choose to stop experiencing these dense lessons and decide to continue your spiritual growth beyond this dimension.”
