Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, My servants would fight to prevent My arrest by the Jews. But now My kingdom is from another place.""I have prepared a kingdom for you, everlasting and full of peace, kept for you in heaven. The kingdom is the King, My Son Jesus Christ! Apart from Him there is no kingdom!
- John 18:36
"Therefore I tell you that if any prophet declares the establishment of 'the kingdom' on earth prior to my Son's return, that prophet prophesies falsely—from ignorance, from error, or from a lying spirit. I prepare the kingdom for you, kept in heaven until the proper time; I do not need anyone to 'establish the kingdom' or prepare the earth for My Son's return. On earth you are to pray for My Son to be enthroned in hearts, not in politics. Until the fulfillment of all things, My kingdom is not 'here or there' but is within you, for My Son and I make our home in you.
"I do not want you to be confused: If you are fighting to 'establish the kingdom' on earth, then you are serving the beast. For the desire of the beast is the restoration of the earthly kingdom and the persecution of My people whose home is in heaven."
