If you ask most Christians (or non-Christians) where to find the Kingdom of God, they will declare that it is somewhere in Heaven.
The idea is that Heaven is somewhere above the earth where God resides and where all those who are saved will one day arrive after a day called Judgement Day.
This is a God made in the image of the human mind (usually a white male with a beard) by those who have not been graced the revelation of the Kingdom of Heaven.
For most people, the understanding of Kingdom of Heaven is a PLACE you go to after you die if you have followed the teachings of the Christian faith and been a GOOD person.
For a Muslim, the place is Paradise. For a Buddhist, the place is Nirvana.
This understanding of Heaven as a place somewhere above is OK for those who are in kindergarten.
This idea of God in Heaven is not based on the teachings of the Master and is neither based on the teachings of all other spiritual traditions that point toward the reality of the Kingdom of Heaven.
So where to seek for the Kingdom of Heaven which is the first thing that you are instructed to do by the Master Jesus Christ?
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. – Luke 17:21
The key words within this passage are “within you.”
When you research this quotation “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you” via the internet you find the claim that a better translation of this passage is, “The Kingdom of Heaven is amidst you.”
Those promoting the idea that the Kingdom of Heaven is “amidst you” are the blind leading the blind. If the Kingdom is “amidst you” it places this Kingdom within time and space.
As anyone graced The Kingdom of Heaven experience KNOWS such experience is beyond time and space.
As the Master Jesus stated, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” John 18:36 (KJV). The Kingdom of Heaven is the world of the Timeless, the world of eternity.
If you follow this instruction “amidst you” you will seek for the Kingdom of Heaven in the outer world within time and space.
You will follow the instruction given by those who have not entered within and been graced to KNOW and be the experience of the eternal.
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. – Luke 11:52
