The Location of the Kingdom of God

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 17:20-37.
The Pharisees asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come, but He told them that it would not come with observation (Luke 17:20). He also said, “nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you” (v. 21). Plenty of preachers predict these days that the Kingdom of God is about to arrive and they paint a picture of it in such a way that they will be able to say, “See here!” or “See there!” Yet, you can tell from the words of Jesus that something is wrong with the predictions of these preachers.
The Kingdom of God is not a material kingdom, consisting of a headquarters on earth or physical borders on the earth, rather the Kingdom of God is a matter of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. We enter the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of God enters us when we enter a certain state of mind.
Is your righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, or are you looking for those things in some happening on earth?
