In this present day, as it was in the old times, many people do not really understand being in the KINGDOM OF GOD. Jesus clarified this “when he 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. Neither shall they say, lo here! Or, lo there! [FOR, BEHOLD, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU]” (Luke 17:20–21).

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles explained, said: “[FOR CHRIST SENT ME NOT TO BAPTIZE], but to [PREACH THE GOSPEL]: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are [SAVED] it is the [POWER OF GOD].
