Kingdom existed in preparation. Christ began His personal ministry during the

days of the Roman Empire. During His personal ministry, the kingdom/church

existed in preparation. Both Jesus and John the Baptist preached that the

kingdom was “at hand” or almost there. Jesus stressed that His kingdom was a

spiritual institution and used the terms “kingdom” and “church”

interchangeably. Jesus said that His kingdom would come “with power”. After His

resurrection, He told the disciples that the power would come when the Holy

Spirit came and that they would be His witnesses beginning at Jerusalem. They

were to wait in Jerusalem until that power came, and at that time, repentance

for the remission of sins would be preached in His name. Peter did just that in

Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost.
