When will God’s country (aka the kingdom) come? That was and is the big question. The Messiah (the Anointed One) would usher it in.
It has already happened, Jesus declared. Jesus is the Son of God and the Messiah. Jesus came to us over 2,000 years ago. He established God’s country. I am a citizen of God’s country right now. Nothing to look forward to from that point of view.
Of course, many have not applied for citizenship yet. God’s goal for me is to spread the good news (aka Gospel) to every one I can. There is much work to be done.
Jesus, grilled by the Pharisees on when the kingdom of God would come, answered, “The kingdom of God doesn’t come by counting the days on the calendar. Nor when someone says, ‘Look here!’ or, ‘There it is!’ And why? Because God’s kingdom is already among you.”
