“…But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women..." Acts 8:12, NIV (italics and emphasis mine)
Unadulterated Gospel is very rare in our time, and when it is preached, we rarely hear about the Kingdom of God. When the Kingdom of God is preached, it is used inter-changeably with heaven. Jesus spoke so much about the Kingdom of God. He said, "...seek first the Kingdom and God...", (Matt 6:33), which means it can be found. He also said, "...If I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you..." (Matt 12:28).
When we believe in the Gospel, we enter into God's kingdom and like any other Kingdom; it has a King and a Domain (dominion-territory). In His Kingdom, we have not only rights and privileges but also a King, master or ruler. Most Christians love the privileges we have in the Kingdom but not the Lordship of Jesus in every aspects and areas of our lives...if Jesus is not your Lord (King and Master)? are you in the Kingdom of God?
