The Signs of the Kingdom
A Sermon on Luke 17:20-21
The Coming of the Kingdom
Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed, nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.” (ESV)
A kingdom not of this world; the error of the church/state union; the kingdom will not come through the reform of the world; the kingdom; a manifestation of the power of God; the kingdom and the Church; belonging to the kingdom.
