Luke 17: 20,21: Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”

John 1:1-4: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with the God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of humanity.”
