WHY IS IT WHEN MOST HEAR "THE KINGDOM OF SWEDEN" THEY THINK ABOUT A REAL GOVERNMENT BUT WHEN THEY HEAR "THE KINGDOM OF GOD" THEY DREAM ABOUT STRUMMING A HARP ON CLOUD NINE?   WILL THE KINGDOM OF GOD BE A HEAVENLY RETIREMENT COMMUNITY OR A REAL POWER ON THIS EARTH?  THE EARLY [TRUE] CHRISTIANS BELIEVED IN THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST ON THIS EARTH, THE MEDIEVAL [DECEIVED] CHURCH BELIEVE GOD'S RUNNING A SOUL FACTORY.  WHO ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE: THE ORIGINAL APOSTLES OR ST. AUGUSTINE? THE HOLY BIBLE OR THE CITY OF GOD?

EVERY GOVERNMENT HAS A LEADER, SUBJECTS OR CITIZENS, A TERRITORY WHICH IT CONTROLS, AND A BODY OF LAW.  INSIDE THAT BODY OF LAW ARE ALL KINDS OF BYLAWS ESTABLISHING SUCH THINGS AS:  NATIONAL HOLIDAYS, THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE(S), MONETARY STANDARDS, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, THE FLAG, THE NATIONS' CAPITAL, EVEN THE OFFICIAL STATE BIRD ETC.  BELOW IS A CHART FOR EIGHT DISTINGUISHED KINGDOMS:
