NOTE: Three ways the Kingdom of God is described in Scripture: (1) The kingdom of God grows as the gospel is proclaimed, (2) The kingdom of God is used to describe the future millennial reign of Christ on earth, and (3) the kingdom of God is the eternal abode of heaven after He makes all things new.
Matthew 13:24-25, “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.” (The present proclamation of the Gospel)
Matthew 13:31-32, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field. Which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.” (Future earthly reign)
Matthew 13:33, “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.” (Future transformation / restoration that makes it better)
