Yes, I have found it, as you say. But in Reality: God's kingdom, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Father have brought me into the Kingdom through Baptism and have sustained me in it via the word of God and the sacrament of the Lord's Supper. God comes and teaches me every time in the Word. I always have access to God by faith in His Word. In His Word, He strengthens and sustains me, and I live in peace because of the promise and assurances of God's Holy Word.

Can the kingdom of God be found?

Yes, it is within you.

Once we learn to just sit in God's lap and be loved, we have found it. Knowing I don't have to do anything else. Just let myself be loved by the creator. There is where the kingdom is.

You have access to God by His Word; by which you mean the bible?

And I'd like to add, should we be searching for Christ within other people? I believe we should. But sometimes it is hard to see him in others.

Sounds like you are saying the kingdom is accessible by a ritual, and the bible is the kingdom we are to seek. It most certainly is another realm, I do not believe it is the bible, although I do believe having your eyes opened that the scriptures will aid you in finding it.

That being said, it's within His people, but also wherever the Spirit is.
That's it in a nutshell. It is within the believers and where ever the Spirit is, on earth or in heavens. Anyone who wants it, can have it (or enter it), as Jesus said it is already amongst us. Everyone is invited, but some refuse to come just like the parable of the wedding feast so clearly demonstrates.

Yes the Bible is the Word of God. This is where Jesus words are. Where else would you find Jesus speaking and know it is Jesus words.

PCCAMPS. Have you ever tried seriously studying the Bible. Some people have been convinced that it truly is the Words of God Almighty, just by their own studies of the Holy Bible.
