I had written on the subject of the Kingdom of God (KoG) as it related to the NT Church.
I believe the exegesis of the biblical texts reveal to us that the KoG is distinct from the NT Church. Moreover, the KoG is eschatological, or in other words, it awaits a future fulfillment at the return of God’s Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ who will reign over the entire earth.
Yet, in the intern, as God’s eschatological purposes are being worked out according to a divinely established time table, God is calling out by the means of the gospel a spiritual body of believers comprised of both Jews and gentiles who are united with Jesus Christ by faith. They presently live according to the principles of the coming eschatological kingdom as they submit themselves to the authority of Jesus as the rightful Lord of God’s kingdom.
