Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied,
“The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in you.”
The kingdom of God is a new earth. Life as it was originally meant to be. No more pain, suffering, or darkness of any kind. But, the power to stop all the horrible things in this world isn't going to a new place, rather it is accepting God's Spirit in our hearts. As Gandhi said, it is true we must be the change we wish to see in the world, but what he left out is that its impossible without the Lord. We are so full of flaws we can never fix this world on our own, just by being "good enough". We absolutely must have the help of our Creator. And let's be grateful that God is happy to be our helper in this!
