INheriting the Kingdom Study

 Inheriting The Kingdom

1 Corinthians 15:50-54 KJV

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

As discussed above, the Bible discusses both the actual physical Kingdom of the Millennial Kingdom and the Spiritual Kingdom of all who will rule with Jesus Christ.

To Inherit The Kingdom is to understand and receive the MYSTERY - ultimately the GOSPEL Of GRACE. Upon Salvation Inheriting the Kingdom involves OVERCOMING and our WORKS and suffering with Christ to receive our position and rewards in our actual reigning with Jesus Christ through the Millennial reign and into the eternal state.

 As explained in the Kingdom Parables by Jesus Christ All born again saved Christians who are Raptured have automatically inherited the Kingdom.

Spiritual Kingdom regarding the Rapture and changed into our glorified Bodies. Inherit = G2816 to be an heir, to become a partaker of being a joint heir with Christ. Between this Hint and the Parables of the Kingdom of Matthew 13 we can see the Physical Kingdom INHERITANCE is the FIRST RESURRECTION - Rapture for the Church, before the Tribulation, Gathering for the Tribulation Saints and Jewish Remnant from the Tribulation and the gathering of the Old Testament Saints after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. 

During the MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST OUR INHERITANCE WILL BE DEFINITELY BASED ON OUR WORKS. SPECIFICALLY FOCUS ON THE OVERCOMERS CROWN etc. Also note that Galatians 5:19-25  and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 are fake Christians living in habitual sin; this is a salvation issue. Those left behind in the Rapture will have a second chance to overcome and be saved and inherit the kingdom.  

Note:  I’ve heard Pharisee Christians say that if a person commits one of the sins listed in Galatians 5:19-25 or 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, then they are going to hell.  This is why Inheritance is so often confused with losing salvation over committing a sin.  What Paul is talking about in Galatians 5:19-25 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 is habitual sin.  Reference Galatians uses the syntax, tense of “which do such things” verses.  DO - commit with intent , perpetuate, repeatedly. G4238

1 Corinthians uses “unrighteous shall not inherit”G94 specifically heathen and in verse 11 “such were some of you, but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

There’s also the issue of backsliders and

Those who DO NOT OVERCOME.  Their rewards will be burned at the BEMA SEAT.

For years I have been teaching on separating the understanding of Inherit vs Entering. It is a play on semantics, but ultimately ALL who are saved will Inherit the Kingdom AND our Sanctification is our actual inheritance.  Hence my study Justification is our earnest inheritance; Sanctification is how we inherit. 

Justification is our earnest Inheritance; Sanctification is how we inherit. (

To the Believers - Saints

Inheriting the Kingdom is the Mystery Revealed to Paul from Jesus Christ in that the Gentiles would be grafted into the Olive Tree of Israel - to be the Seed of Abraham through FAITH - It was counted unto Abraham as RIGHTEOUS.

Hence the Age of Grace or the Church Age which is the GOSPEL of GRACE


Ephesians 3:1-6 KJB

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

2If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

3How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

4Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

5Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

6That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

Romans 4:3-5 KJV: Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. 4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Romans 11:24

King James Version

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Galatians 3:29 KJV: "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."

Galatians 3:16 KJV: "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ."

Heir Page Oxford English Dictionary page 1284 The person who is entitled by law to succeed another in the enjoyment of property or rank upon the death of the latter.

Joint heirs = Romans 8:17

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Inherit = MYSTERY

In my extensive research going back to Genesis 15:7,8 and surprised to see several corresponding scriptures in Psalm

The MYSTERY of His Gospel given to him by Jesus Christ gives us HOPE because of the GLORY we will share with Jesus Christ - Colossians 1:27 KJB for eternity as JOINT HEIRS. Romans 8:17. 

What does joint heirs mean? See 2 Timothy 2:12, 1 Corinthians 6:14, 15:51–53, 1 Thessalonians 4:16–17, Revelation 1:6, 5:10, 12:5 19:14, 20:6.

The false teachers of today hate the Gospel of Paul they deny the Church has any part of the book of Revelation as being Raptured and Returning with Jesus to rule and reign with him. The False teachers hate that The Church is One in Israel joining the Jewish Remnant, The Tribulation Saints, and the Old Testament Saints at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.

We must understand the “mystery” given to Paul. Read Romans 16:25 and Ephesians 3:9. Read and study Galatians Chapters 3 and 4. (Essential to understand Galatians 3:29, 4:26, Romans 4:15,16).

 We understand that the Mystery is GRACE given to the Gentiles who are now grafted into the SEED of Abraham and we are now eventually ONE in Israel. 

This gives us the same promise as was given to Abraham FAITH through GRACE we are saved. The Gospel of GRACE - 1 Corinthians 15:1–4, Ephesians 2:8,9… Salvation by Faith Alone and not of works. 

This does not end with our Salvation but is only the beginning of our inheritance as joint heirs with Christ to rule and reign with Him in the Millennial Kingdom into the Eternal State. See additional scriptures. Also please watch my video with blog and associated study links above.

Prologue: I have been working on this subject for several years and have twice before posted Blogs on the subject of Inheriting the Kingdom VS Entering the Kingdom. In other words many have confused and are confounded by Inheriting the Kingdom and equate it with Salvation. I recently saw someone struggling with this and it was a great hinderance in their Christian walk of sanctification - spiritual growth.  

I am finding over and over again the Laodicean 501C3 Brick and Mortar Building operations run by apostate trained CEOs called pastors use Inheriting the Kingdom as a hammer over their feeble minded followers, continually keeping them in guilt and works based salvation, The Holy Spirit prompted me to post a new study with more ammunition in scripture and to actually REFUTE - REBUKE the notion and teaching that a backslidden or carnal Christian is not saved and will go to hell and ultimately the eternal lake of fire.

Essential Background Information:

Sadly, most do not understand the Kingdom, The Kingdom of God, The Kingdom of the Son, The Kingdom of Christ, and The Kingdom of Heaven. This goes hand in hand with a grave misunderstanding of most Christians regarding the Dispensations, namely the Kingdom Gospel and the Gospel of Grace. To further complicate the issue, most Christians have no clear understanding of Bible Eschatology that sheds even great light on the Kingdom of God.

Why is this? Today the Laodicean Church = These apostate trained CEOs called pastors with their perverted heretical doctrine and perverted bible translations are preaching another gospel, another Jesus. The PreTribulation Rapture and all Eschatology has been thrown out of the window. Dispensation is a forbidden and foreign word. Doctrines of Demons have replaced the King James Bible and solid doctrine with DOMINION THEOLOGY (kingdom now theology), New Apostolic Reformation along with the Prosperity Gospel and Christian Nationalism. All emphasis is based on building the kingdom of the antichrist. Making Christians look down on the things of this world and slowly become OF this world in the alliance of Ecumenism and Gnosticism, Eastern Mysticism which brings in the likes of SOCIAL GOSPEL, ECOTHEOLOGY, MEDITATION, GRAVE SOAKING, FORTUNE TELLING, CHRISTIAN YOGA, and of course the entire gamut of UNIVERSALISM, (the non-existence of hell and the lake of fire for unregenerated (unsaved people), the L+ AGENDA.

The reason modern apostate reprobate so-called pastors love to teach that inheriting the kingdom means salvation is eternal security gets thrown out of the window as well as the cross and the efficiency of the blood of Christ Jesus for the remission of sins. This leads to WORKS BASED salvation and always working to pay your dues including unbiblical tithing for this dispensation of GRACE and making merchandise of the sheeple. The greatest weapon of Satan is getting people to doubt - mentally not know and question their salvation. This keeps them in bondage to the SYSTEM. The Demonic so-called church accountability groups continually calling to attend service and always pay with one's time and pocket book.

Another evil prevailing in this Laodicean age is the HYPER-DISPENSATIONALIST who joins forces with the NAR and NEW AGE agenda to keep the church out of Prophecy and the Book of Revelation. SPECIFICALLY, Reigning with Jesus Christ as Kings and Priests. See my studies exposing this evil agenda including a false belief the church is NOT the Bride of Christ. For this teaching continually indoctrinates the feeble minded Christian that all prophecy including the KINGDOM of God is only for Israel and the Little Flock (the saved first members of Pentecost). See my studies exposing and debunking this heresy and why it is so evil. In my many years studying this subject I am convinced the primary reason the Laodicean church does not understand or preach the Kingdom is because of the direct connection to our prize, rewards, crowns at the BEMA Seat and how this will directly relate to our eternal position with Jesus Christ throughout the Millenial reign and into the eternal state forever. Again, they want the Christian striving unlawfully for their rewards and position in this age for the apostate church which will no doubt eventually support the antichrist.

Following is an excerpt from my study Blog:

The Millennial Kingdom Teaching: The Heart of the Matter (

To understand the kingdom in relation to the Christian We find that 1 Corinthians 3:1 divides a Christian between SPIRITUAL and CARNAL.

The Carnal Christian is saved but will not reign - activating their inheritance with Jesus Christ in a position of authority with crowns.

Simply stated, A carnal Christian is that person who continually seems to be backsliding and living a double life with one foot in the world and the other with Jesus Christ.

We know we are created in the image and after the likeness of The Godhead Genesis 1:26 KJB - being a person with a body as Jesus Christ who is the image of the invisible God and the fullness of the Godhead BODILY Colossians 1:15, 2:9 KJB - comprised of the 3 parts as BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJB.

The pagan concept of the Trinity 3 distinct gods or persons distorts creation and our tripartite (consisting of 3 parts) existence which is after the likeness of the Godhead.

See study:

Trinity is Pagan Practice of Polytheism in Mainstream Christianity #EndTimes #Apostasy (

For terms we know that the body is our flesh blood physical body. Our soul is our mind (the carnal mind is enmity against God), our will, volition, our emotions, our desire, our feelings and personality. 

The spirit of man:

whether saved or unsaved also have the spiritual faculty of communion, conscience and intuition. I will explain communion below, but we all understand conscience - knowing what is right and wrong, and intuition having that 6th sense of something not seen, example: Something doesn’t seem right about that person.

Communion of the spirit. The differences between the saved and unsaved person is in the faculty of communion. Although both saved and unsaved have the function of communion there is a major difference as follows:

As a saved person, our spirit is the function of our communion of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. An unsaved person still is born with a spirit but their spirit is unregenerated - dead and virtually inactive in relation to communion.

Instead of possessing the Holy Spirit the unsaved will be in either a dead state whereby their soul will be in command achieving often great and most noble and lofty accomplishments. Some unsaved are very active spiritually in their communion with the spiritual world under the command of Satan and the powers, principalities, rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places. This is precisely why some witches, spiritualists, mystics have supernatural abilities and can be used by familial spirits and other spiritual influences.

The Difference between the Saved Spiritual Christian and the Saved Carnal - in the flesh Christian

Spiritual Christians are reborn - regenerated with the Holy Spirit indwelling within their spirit and their spirit is controlled by the Holy Spirit and their spirit in turn rules over their SOUL which commands and disciplines the BODY. Jesus Christ and Paul were very clear that these are who inherit the Kingdom See many scriptures and analysis I provide below. With this knowledge it should be much easier to understand the difference between entering the Kingdom and inheriting the Kingdom.

A carnal Christian lives in the SOUL (emotion, desire, character, feelings, mind (the carnal mind is enmity against God). The carnal Christian’s SOUL - commands and directs their SPIRIT.

There is a book I have had in my bookshelf for years as a must read for every Christian titled, “THE SPIRITUAL MAN” by Chinese Christian Watchman Nee back in the 1920s who suffered greatly for his faith. In his book Spiritual Man Watchman goes into this in great detail throughout his book and I strongly urge my readers to get the 1968 edition as the later Revisions after his death were compromised.

Here's a quote that brings me to my point of the difference between inheritance which is synonymous with entering the kingdom or salvation and Inheriting the kingdom from Watchman Nee page 65 Part 1:


TWO KINDS OF CHRISTIANS The Apostle in 1 Corinthians 3.1 divides all Christians into two classifications. They are the spiritual and the carnal. A spiritual Christian is one in whom the Holy Spirit dwells in his spirit and controls his entire being. What is meant, then, by being carnal? The Bible employs the word "flesh" to describe the life and value of an unregenerated man. It comprises everything which issues from his sinful soul and body (Rom. 7.19). Hence a carnal Christian is one who has been born anew and has God's life, but instead of overcoming his flesh he is overcome by the flesh. We know the spirit of a fallen man is dead and he is dominated by his soul and body. A carnal Christian, therefore, is one whose spirit has been quickened, but who still follows his soul and body unto sin. If a Christian remains in a carnal condition long after experiencing new birth, he hinders God's salvation from realizing its full potential and manifestation. Only when he is growing in grace, constantly governed by the spirit, can salvation be wholly wrought in him. God has provided full salvation in Calvary for the regeneration of sinners and complete victory over the believer's old creation.

Understanding The Kingdom used in Scripture:

For a brief description, CONTEXT is the key to understanding THE KINGDOM used in scripture. To understand the Kingdom one must carefully study the context used. For example The Kingdom of God refers to the spiritual kingdom of God, and the Kingdom of Heaven refers to the actual physical kingdom of God that will be established for the 1,000 year reign of Jesus Christ on earth following the 7 year Tribulation. A few examples of Kingdom of God = Spiritual kingdom are Matthew 12:28 KJB (Kingdom Dispensation) and Romans 14:17 KJB (Dispensation of Grace). Examples of Kingdom of Heaven = physical kingdom are Matthew 4:17 (The Kingdom would have been established IF Israel would have received Jesus Christ as their true Messiah which is all part of the Kingdom Dispensation. For the Dispensation of GRACE Paul in the context of 2 Thessalonians 1:5 to refer to the physical kingdom. It is here that we need to understand Paul always uses the Kingdom of God interchangeably. He does not refer to Heaven as was in the Gospels. Also note that the Kingdom of Christ used by Paul is also interchangeable.

Matthew 13:11

“He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.”

King James Version (KJV)

Mark 4:11

“And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:”

King James Version (KJV)

Understanding the Kingdom of God - Kingdom of Heaven

THE COMING KINGDOM by Dr. Andy Woods is a wonderful book that explains in great detail the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven which are used interchangeably in scripture and in some instances the Kingdom of God is used purely in the context of the SPIRITUAL KINGDOM and the Kingdom of Heaven is used purely in the context of the coming PHYSICAL KINGDOM during the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ in which we the Saints will rule with Jesus Christ.

In each of the inherit the KIngdom scriptures below, The context is referring NOT to salvation but rather works and setting oneself as Spiritual not carnal, overcoming.

In 1 Corinthians Chapter 6:9 it is absolutely clear THE UNRIGHTEOUS shall not inherit.

1 Corinthians 6:9-13 KJB

In Galatians 5:19 again, Paul makes it clear that the WORKS of the FLESH are what is manifested.

Galatians 5:19-21 KJB

Ephesians 5 is even more clear: Paul writes in verse 1: Followers of God (this is a sanctification issue NOT a justification issue. In verse 3 Paul warns “LET IT NOT BE ONCE NAMED AMONG YOU” This is referring to those who are carnal and fallen into the habitual vice listed. In verses 6 and 7 refer to Disobedience and not being partakers with them. This is absolutely NOT a justification - salvation issue, but rather sanctification.

Ephesians 5:5-8 KJB

In Ephesians we clearly understand that Paul is addressing Christians - Believers - Saints - Those who are Saved and going to live eternally with Jesus Christ and who will inherit the Kingdom. Ephesians is obvious that a a saved person also inherits the Kingdom. And if study in more depth we find that These Saints Paul is addressing are "predestined to their inheritance and that the earnest (noun) .

Ephesians 5:13, 14 KJB: In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

earnest (n.)

"portion of something given or done in advance as a pledge," early 15c., with unetymological -t- (perhaps from influence of the other earnest), from Middle English ernes (c. 1200), "a pledge or promise;" often "a foretaste of what is to follow;" also (early 13c.) "sum of money as a pledge to secure a purchase or bind a bargain (earnest-money); from Old French erres and directly from Latin arra, probably from Phoenician or another Semitic language (compare Hebrew 'eravon "a pledge"). Sometimes in Middle English as erness, suggesting it was perceived as er "early" + -ness.

Oxford English dictionary page 825: A serious offer, a pledge commitment of a foretaste installment future, afterwards to be received in a greater abundance.

Revelation 21:7

More proof is provided in Revelation Chapter 21 verse 7. Overcomers shall inherit.

Revelation 21:7

In verse 8 of Revelation 21 we have a scripture that shows works as unto Salvation which harmonizes with the Tribulation Saints and which they must have FAITH and WORKS. False teachers love to use Revelation 21:8 and apply this to the wrong dispensation. See study on Dispensational truth - Rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15 KJB.

Here are the scriptures that harmonize with the Tribulation Saints needing works as part of their salvation:

Revelation 7:14

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Revelation 14:12

12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Revelation 21:8


And here in Revelation 22 verse 12, Jesus says, “...and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his WORK shall be.” John writes in verse14: “Blessed are they that DO his commandments, that they may have RIGHT to the Tree of Life.” Glorified bodies.

Revelation 22:15

Note Revelation 22:15 is for those who are NOT with Glorified Bodies. who will NOT reign with Jesus Christ. For the Tree of Life is for those with Glorified Bodies who will reign with Jesus Christ.

This subject has for years been a compelling subject for me personally, questioning continually this age-old debate: Does Inheriting the Kingdom of God mean the same as Salvation.

Although, I grew up in the church where I had continually been told that inheriting the kingdom is synonymous with entering the Kingdom, I could never harmonize ETERNAL SECURITY - which is solid and true Biblical doctrine (see eternal security in links below) - with one truly saved Saint falling into sin and losing their salvation - not enter the kingdom Galatians 5

Again, one of the many reasons I - many churches actually and to my long-time subscribers know how I came out of the apostate brick and mortar 501C3 institutions and have been home church and underground church both here in the United States and overseas in Asia as well.

Additional Notes to consider:

Matthew 5:17-20

King James Version

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 10:6

But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 10:7

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 21:43

Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

King James Version (KJV)

In Matt 12:24 the religious leaders accuse Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan. This is the climax of the rejection by the leadership. Jesus says this is unpardonable and in turn rejects Israel.

Matt 13 is hinge in the literary structure of the book. It is a turning point in ministry of Jesus. In Matt 13 Jesus begins talking about the mystery form of the kingdom by telling parables. We know that because in 13:10 the disciples asked Jesus why he was speaking in parables. He answers that he is revealing the mysteries of the kingdom.

Following is an excerpt from

. The Parables of Matthew 13 |

In Matt 13 we have eight parables. Six begin with the phrase, “The kingdom of heaven is like...” The first one doesn’t begin that way, but we know it is about the kingdom from its explanation in 13:19. The last one doesn’t begin that way, but it talks about a disciple of the kingdom.

1. The Sower and the Soils (13:1-23)

2. The Tares (13:24-30)

3. The Mustard Seed (13:31-32)

4. The Leaven (13:33)

5. The Hidden Treasure (13:44)

6. The Costly Pearl (13:45-46)

7. The Dragnet (13:47-50)

8. The Householder (13:52)

The Sower and the Soils (13:1-9) - The beginning of the Kingdom

Jesus ends this parable with the statement, “He who has ears, let him hear.” What does He mean? What is necessary for hearing or better -- understanding the parables? An open and receptive heart. How do we know that? He will tell us in the next section

. The Parables of Matthew 13 |

KINGDOM is the literally millennial Kingdom of God also known as the Kingdom of Heaven, example: Revelation 21:10 clearly shows us the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God are synonymous.

Revelation 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

 - However we must look at the context because:

Although they are used frequently in scripture as synonymous we find where in some instances Kingdom of Heaven refers to the Literal physical kingdom of the Millennial Kingdom whereas Kingdom of God is the ever present Spiritual Kingdom.   

However, we see in Luke 17:21 they are not. 

For a very short synopsis: USE CONTEXT and know who is talking. Example: Why Matthew uses Kingdom of Heaven and Kingdom of God 5 times 


But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

sometimes specifically to designate spiritual or physical whereas Mark, Luke, John and Paul use Kingdom of God exclusively and interchangeably. 

This is NOT an accurate statement of which most scholars I’ve found adhere to:

The reason why Matthew uses the phrase “kingdom of Heaven” more often than “kingdom of God” (which he uses only five (5) times in his gospel, although there are textual variants) is because he wrote to a Jewish audience, and the Jews did not pronounce the Tetragrammaton יַהְוֶה (Yahveh), and sometimes not even the word אֱלֹהִים (elohim).

 Mt 3:2 -  2 Chronicles: 22

And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Colossians 1:13

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 12:28

But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

King James Version (KJV)

John 8:42

“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

King James Version (KJV)

Furthermore, understanding the Spiritual Kingdom and the Connection to ENTER the Physical Kingdom stems from Luke 17:21 KJB and connecting the dots to John 3:4KJB

Luke 17:21

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

King James Version (KJV)

John 3:4

“Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Timothy 4:1

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;”

King James Version (KJV)

Note: Kingdom here in context is the actual KINGSHIP of Jesus Christ this extends to the GWTJ at the end of the Millennial Kingdom when ALL the lost will be judged.  Again note the conjunction “and” here in context is copulative (which is)  To consider cumulative (and in addition to) would make this impossible to harmonize with Revelation 1:7, Daniel 7:9, Matthew 16:27 etc.

Note: See the applicable scriptures of Kingdom (356 total kingdom in the KJB) in notes below:
