The Kingdom of God is real and powerful and here with us, only, it’s not yet fully realized. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, the Kingdom was put into motion. But now, much like the Israelites waiting for their Messiah, we find ourselves waiting, too. Though we can experience the Holy Spirit and the radical redemption given through Jesus, we have not yet reached the end of the story. But the New Jerusalem is coming, and the book of Revelation prepares us for the second coming of Jesus’ union with us.
