And when one of them that sat at meat with Jesus heard those things, he said unto him, "Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God." (Luke 14:15)
Jesus had been sharing parables of the future of all mankind; talking about the resurrection of the just. How Father God would recompense all who served and labored for the kingdom of God. Pointing out the immeasurable difference between God's values and man's. Then like a bolt of lightning, it hits you; that there is a kingdom of God! The world we live in seems to manipulate, even to the extent of obscuring, the reality of the existence of another world. Jesus, time and time again, not only talked about its existence; but demonstrated the same. He showed that it could alter, change, refashion, communicate with, even create any and all physical resources in this realm.
Yes someday your eyes will see the physical kingdom of God in all its beauty. A city one half the size of the USA; its height and width being the same. God himself, along with the Lord Jesus will be among its eternal inhabitants.
Today we can experience the kingdom of God within us. A reflecting bond of the citizenship you are entitled to because your name is written in "the book of life". Can you imagine that? Sitting at a table, enjoying a meal, walking, talking, living, breathing and engaging in social habits that includes Father God, the Lord Jesus and untold numbers of brethren in a refreshing sinless society. Well, don't imagine, it's true! Praise the Lord!
