Can you explain what kingdom you mean? Luke 17:20-21 says that the kingdom of God is within each of us, we have received the indwelling of His Spirit, He has given us a new citizenship and when we submit to His kingship we have brought His kingdom to Earth. His rule is righteousness in our hearts.... Please forgive me if you are talking about something physical. Blessings - Jeff

Thanks, Glenn for your blog. I don't question your motives but I hate that some will take it to reinforce their condemnation on believers for believers sin. I question why some in the Church still want to reinforce His anger at sin to believers. I grew up in a church where the teaching made me never feel secure in my salvation so I constantly repented in fear of judgement not thankful for redemption. Jesus became our High Priest to cover all of it because God is merciful. Heb 2:17 The only reason to reinforce the anger of God is to remind everyone of the new covenant grace that is poured out to those that believe in Jesus. Sin is it's own punishment now and God's wrath is stored up for the Day of Judgment when every knee shall bow. It's the kindness of God that brings men to repentance. Rom. 2:4. When was that last time that you introduced yourself by telling people about all of the things that you hate and will not tolerate? Do that a lot I can guarantee that you don't have many friends unless they hate the same things. That's not a loving friendship that is a bond based on intolerance. Why would a loving God build His Church on intolerance? So yes - sin carries a punishment and God cannot stand the sight of sin because He is holy but He forsook Jesus and put all of the sin, death and disease on Jesus so that their is no more wrath for those that believe and have the Spirit living in them. Thanks again Glenn.
