Most of the religious folks I know believe in a "Kingdom" Of God which they are aspiring to reach one day after their lives here on earth are over.They seem to believe thathis Kingdom is a physical place off afar somewhere where God is sitting in judgement over all of us. Personally I believe that he Kingdom of God is already here located in the hearts and minds of all of us just awaiting our discovery.Im almost sure that the bible states that Jesus said this kingdom was here already. I would like to share with you a paragraph from the writings of Rocco Errico who is the president and founder of the Noohra Foundation in Smyrna Georgia.
Mr. Errico states "The term kingdom in Arabic is malkutha; its root mlkh means "to counsel,advise." Thus, the kingdom of God or heaven does not mean a place or an empire, but is actually God's sovereign counsel or reigning presence in and among the people. Jesus used the expression "kingdom of God" as a symbol that pointed to the great and joyful guidance of God directing people inot genuine justice and harmony. God's reign had arrived in the midst of violence and injusticies. Jesus' mission was to open the eyes of the people to this kingdom."
