People Who Understand That the Kingdom of God Transcends Organized Church

These are people who understand that “the kingdom of God” (also called “the kingdom of heaven”) was the central theme of Jesus’ teaching.  If it was the central theme of Jesus’ teaching, should it not be the central theme of our learning?

Indeed, the kingdom of God and His righteousness ought to be what we seek most!  (Matthew 6:34)  Why then is it possible to go to churches all over our country this morning and not hear about it?

The only extended description of a church service we have in the New Testament is 1 Corinthians 12-14.  (A succinct description can be found in Ephesians 5:18-21, and an even more succinct one in Colossians 3:16.)  The description you’ll find there matches what you’ll see on this video far more closely than what you’ll find in a typical church service this weekend.

The folks on this video are speaking truth (Ephesians 4:25), which is just what the prophet Zechariah said that the Lord’s people should do (Zechariah 8:16).  The kingdom of God is in our midst (Luke 17:20-21; Jeremiah 17:4-8).  Blessed are those who find it, and unblessed are those who don’t.
