John preached "Repent! The Kingdom of God is at hand" (Mk1:15) Paul said he preached "Repent Jesus is coming" (Acts 19:4) Is the KoG Jesus?

Update:

Is that why Jesus said in Matthew 12:28 

"If I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then Kingdom of God is come unto you?"

    Jesus speaking:

    Luk 17:20 ¶ And when Jesus was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

    Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! >>>for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you<<<.

    Jesus was making the point that heaven is a spiritual place - not at all physical. They wouldnt "see" the kingdom of God like a country or place. Ultimately the Kingdom of God upon the earth is the worldwide Christian church. 

    Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

    I.E. SPIRITUAL

      Re: Luke 17:21 The Kingdom of God is NOT within you 

      UNTIL 

      After Jesus suffered (Luke 17:25).

      "The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing" (Heb 9:8)

    No, the Kingdom of God is not Jesus.

      The way GB wrote your NWT saying "I will not leave you BEREAVED" makes it disagree with who the Holy Spirit is in Jn 14:26.

      Your NWT says He's the "HELPER" to adhere to JW doctrine that Jesus is an archangel. If only your HELPER it debunks your belief the Holy Spirit is God's "active force!"

    where ever Jesus is, where ever a saint is, there is the church and kingdom of God. We pray the kingdom of God comes upon the earth, and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Luke 11. Matt 6. yes, when Jesus was on the earth, the KOG was here with him. Jesus said the kingdom of God is at hand...

    now step forward to our day, and the prophecy of the restoration... we have the kingdom of God on earth in its preparatory condition. sorta like John the baptist preparing the way of the Lord in his mortal ministry. something like it. Now is the day, and the time to prepare to Meet The Son of God. now is the time to have a full lamp with the oil of the Holy Ghost.

      Jesus is still "here on earth" (II Cor 5:16) or we couldn't "Hear His voice" (Jn 10:27).

      No one has the Spirit of God unless they can "demonstrate the Spirit and of Power" (I Cor 2:4).

    Jesus was never able to tell Nicodemus what the  Kingdom of God was like 

    so no Jesus isn't Kong . And further more he gave up and told Nicodemus that if he can't understand worldly things then he will never understand heavenly things .

     What kind of god goes " Oh you're too stupid to get it so good luck ?"

     Really - should Jesus of taken another try at explaining the kingdom of heaven to Nicodemus or given up .

     Meanwhile as Paul has never been to the KoG 

    other than some third person narrative as some dude he knew 14 years

     " In the body or spirit he knows Not "

    which is his way of saying he went to heaven to get all his authority as an apostle 

    sort of the same way Muhammad claims his authority 

    2 Corinthians 12/2 thru 9 . Do you find it strange 2 Corinthians would of been written around 14 years after is supposed vision on the road to Damascus ?

    Yet he stands presently as the highest authority on said Kingdom without ever trying to explain it . While Apparently Jesus never could get thru to even the most educated Pharisee of his time .

    The bible answer is Colossians 1:13.  And Jesus is the King over His kingdom, as He affirmed before Pilate, John 18:36-37. Compare Luke 1:33.

      Yes it is then!

      Jesus is the Holy Spirit (John 14:18).The Kingdom of God is the Spirit of God (Matt 12:28) and Jesus is the Spirit of God (John 14:18)!
