What is the Kingdom of God and how can a person become a part of it?
Anyone can run to be a part of God's new kingdom. All that is needed is a sincere desire to do God’s will and learn the ways He wants us to follow.

The term "gospel of the kingdom" simply means the "good news" of His perfect, forthcoming government.
Before the Earth, planets, and the stars were ever created, there was the Almighty God, Jehovah, who always was. Then God created His only begotten Son, the Word, and they Together created the Heavens, the Earth, and the angels.
