    Hey folks.

    I'm interested in viewing all the passages that teach the Kingdom is now and is found in the Church. I'm interested in looking at these passages without comment, commentary or any details given to why my brothers and sisters believe they are "Kingdom now" passages.

    Where should I start? Which passages clearly teach Kingdom now?

    Thanks guys and gals.

    Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron. Since iron crushes and smashes all things; and as the iron that shatters all these, it will crush and shatter.
    Dan 2:41 And as to that which you saw: the feet and toes, part of potters' clay and part of iron; the kingdom shall be divided. But there shall be in it the strength of the iron, because you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.
    Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle.
    Dan 2:43 And as you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mix themselves with the seed of men. But they shall not cling to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
    Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other peoples, but it shall crush and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.



    Mar 1:14 And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God,
    Mar 1:15 and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God draws near. Repent, and believe the gospel.

    Thanks Grasshopper, that's exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for.

    And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
    (Luke 17:20-21)

    Why did you post in the debate forum if you didn't want any comment or debate?

    JM --- The kingdom of heaven parables in Mt show the church in the following symbology:

    1) Mt 13 -- the mustard tree

    2) Mt 20 -- the workers hired in the 11th hour

    3) Mt 22 -- the Son's bride (near future)

    4) Mt 24 -- the house broken up (near future)

    5) Mt 25 -- the 10 virgins (near future)

    In all these, the kingdom is now but it is SPIRITUAL. Its citizens are believers but there are clearly unbelievers mixed in (going to church). These citizens do NOT have the authority to take secular gov't into their hands. The King is yet to come and their/our secular head.
