    An external kingdom wd be no threat to Satan, As our carnal mind is his seat the very enemy of God,thus the kingdom has to be INTERNAL, WITH IN US,thats y the good seed is sown in our hearts that Christ might be born in us,Destroying our propensity to sin, As them that are born of God cannot sin, That good seed is gonna remain with in us which is christ in us,TH SON OF MAN MEANING MANKINDS FRUIT.

    This book is the caveat or stepping stone to the book of Romans that runs through to the book of Jude and stops their and not Revelation. Why ? Because we are the church age or gentiles Kingdom of God temporary age of{ Grace-Salvation-Holy Ghost-Nine Manifestations thereof} which is the blueprint Paul set forth us all. This is where we should all be at and doing. HOPE = RESTORATION = ELIJAH.
