The Spiritual Nature of the Kingdom
Resuming the discussion of the nature of God's kingdom this session addresses pivotal passages. Acts 15:13-17 demonstrate that the kingdom promises pertain to the church, not some future period after Christ's Second Coming. This means that Jesus is presently reigning, and that we are presently in the millenium. Emphasis is placed on what Jesus said about the nature of the kingdom in the Gospel accounts. The kingdom of God is internal in many respects. It is a spiritual kingdom, operating right now.
