What did Jesus mean when he spoke of the Kingdom of God?

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21)

What is in human beings?

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)

It is, therefore, life in the form of the Spirit of God that exists within man.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3)

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)

"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24)

A person lives in his environment that he exchanges information with. He lives of the created. But Jesus said that a person who lives only of the created was a dead person. To come to life, he must begin to live of God within him. This called Jesus to be born again.

We must humble ourselves and realize our smallness and let God within us influence our mind. This is done by being in stillness and silence, so that our mind and the mind of God become one through love.

But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. (Matthew 12:28)

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:22-23)

We look with the eyes and depend on how we perceive the world emotionally, vibration is created in our bodies. Either we look positive to life and create a healing soul and body, or we negatively view life and create a sick soul and body. By thinking of good thoughts about ourselves and our neighbor, we sow in the good ground and harvest a healthy mind and body.

A person can either live out ideas, thoughts, words and actions from the created or she can live out ideas, thoughts, words and actions from the creator.

It is important that the Creator's ideas, thoughts, words and actions shine through our being, so we keep ourselves and others healthy.

Desires directed toward wordly objects cause pleasure and suffering. But if a desire is directed toward God, then it gives bliss!

There is only one religion, the religion of Love;
There is only one language, the language of the Heart;
There is only one cast, the caste of Humanity;
There is only one law, the law of Karma;
There is only one God, he is Omnipresent.

- Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)

"I and my Father are one." (Johannes 10:30)

By loving everything we are one with God and doing good deeds only.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein." (Mark 10:15, Luke 18:17)

Martin Reen, Light in the dark: I would say that the bible word is about receiving the kingdom of God without reservations.
We must trust God just as a child trusts their parents in order to receive the kingdom of God.
In this way, we must be like children and have a child's trust in God who is our Father.
This trust has given every believer humanity at salvation, but it is also something we are need to live daily.
So you can summarize it all by saying that it means daring to trust on God completely. That's the way it is to be a child of God.

And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. (Luke 9:2)

"And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." (Matthew 10:38-39)

But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; (Matthew 20:26, Matthew 23:11, Mark 10:43)

To crucify your life means saying goodbye to the old man who lived alone of what is created and instead live everything from the Creator. Our mission as believers is to tell people who live from what created that she is wrong and they would live a life of peace, joy and happiness if they turn to the Creator and live for others.

Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. (Matthew 9:29)

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (Matthew 21:22)

It is by claiming that man in his proper state is loving and lacks limitations, as he is a divine person who loves her neighbor and it makes possible to heal himself and other people as well as perform miracles and signs.

- Hermes Atar Trismegistus

You can name this all-wise, intelligent Spirit God or Good, or what you will, as man must have a name for everything. Once he has named a thing, he has the power to bring it into existence. If man names anything through true reverence, worship and praise, he can and does become which he names. Thus you can see that man by choice can become God or animal. He becomes the ideal which he presents for himself to follow. With this line of thinking, it is simple to see that man is the only-begotten Son of God, or the only-begotten son of the animal. Thus, by choice, man can become evil or devil if his eye behold evil; or he becomes God; if his eyes beholds God....
