Jesus said the kingdom was within us, which means it is already inside us. The kingdom is an integral part of our being. It is not something external that we strive to reach. Because we, like Jesus, are now one with the Father, when we speak, we speak from a place of authority and with the creative power of God. We are speaking God’s will and His words when we speak in accordance with the Holy Spirit’s leading. God’s Word will not come back void, which means that, when we speak with His wisdom and authority, we are now co-creators with Him. We create from inside ourselves through our thoughts and words that shape our outside world. This is how the Kingdom of God advances.
The Coming of the Kingdom
Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
(Luke 17:20-21 NKJV)
