The Bible uses the term Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven. While many believe these are one and the same, I believe they are in fact two different. The Kingdom of Heaven will be established on this Earth after the Tribulation when Christ sets up his Kingdom on this Earth. It is of the Kingdom of God, but not the same. The Kingodm of God is the entire spiritual realm, both Heavenly and Earthly.

So, the term "kingdom of God" has different meanings, just like a word can have more than one definition (even opposite meanings, like in the case of "citation", which can mean recognition with praise, OR a fine).

The kingdom of God IN us would be the "righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit" (in Romans 14:17) which we have now in the Holy Spirit.

Kingdom of God is God's will and ways carried out on Earth. His people(believers,born again, saved) people who carries out the work of God through multiple ministries and churches. Not denominations but all the true churches of God who are committed to the priniciples and commands of God. Our focus should be evangelizing,discipleship,reaching out to the poor and needy. Doing whatever we can to continue God's work until Jesus makes His return.

Yes it is within you!
Jesus said this in the Bible!
Luke 17:21
Neither shall they say, `Lo, it is here!' or `Lo, it is there!' For behold, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU."
The Kingdom of God has to be received by you!
# Luke 18:17
Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein."
John 3:5
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

Those who claim the Kingdom is within them or it is here now have contridicts this scripture:

1 Cor 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

So

If you say your incorruptible have some one pinch you and ask yourself if you feel it.

The kingdom of God will be established when its King returns to the earth and establishes it.

"The Kingdom of God is NOT a matter of eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit"
Romans 14:17

Our corruption and mortality may not INHERIT but it will be swallowed up by HIS incorruption and immortality. This is, to wit, the redemption of the body.

So when this incorruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory." It is true that our flesh and blood does not INHERIT incorruption or immortality but HIS flesh and blood did inherit it. This is why we are told to eat HIS flesh and HIS blood. You are what you eat.

That same chapter in 1 Corinthians says, "Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For THIS CORRUPTIBLE must put on incorruption, and THIS MORTAL must put on immortality

Jesus told His disciples that the Kingdom of God was within them. The kingdom is now and future. It is already established within us because Jesus is already king in the heavens, where we are seated with Him (Eph.2:2,5,6). It is also future as there is to be a visible manifestation (Christ head and body) of the kingdom that is already present within. There will be a people who will walk in the fullness of all that God has completed in Christ and that walk will be in the earth.
