On the Move [March 5, 2017] Tim Haring

People think the gospel only applies to the future.
The good news for here and now.
Last week, the take away was: The good news permeated the entire Bible from A-Z, Genesis to Revelation.

This week: The good news here and now.
Kingdom of Heaven: the kingly rule of God in the lives of people and nations. It refers to the recognition of the authority of God, rather than a definite geographical area, and begins with the ministry of Jesus Christ.[1]
– Dictionary of Bible Themes

[1] Manser, M. H. (2009). Dictionary of Bible Themes: The Accessible and Comprehensive Tool for Topical Studies. London: Martin Manser.
The kingdom of God is “already” present but “not yet” fully completed, both a present and future reality. The kingdom was inaugurated in the incarnation, life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. God’s kingdom blessings are in some measure possessed now. People presently find and enter God’s kingdom. God is now manifesting His authoritative rule in the lives of His people. God’s kingdom, however, awaits its complete realization.[1] – Peter Gentry, Kingdom of God
