Do you have any idea of What is really a kingdom of heaven stated in these verses in the bible?
well joemer don't tell me that you do not understand this. the kingdom of heaven is in you did you find it yet?
"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again" (John 3:1-7).
To understand this Biblical term, it is necessary to understand that there are TWO BIRTHS. The "first" birth is the PHYSICAL BIRTH when you were born into this world from your mother and father. When the Bible speaks of being "born of water," it is speaking about the physical birth (NOT baptism). The "second" birth is a SPIRITUAL BIRTH, which means to be born of the "Spirit" (God's Holy Spirit). Why does a person need to be born spiritually? What is a "spiritual" birth?
The Bible teaches that man is created in the image of God. God manifests Himself to mankind in the Persons of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Likewise, mankind is composed of a body, soul, and spirit. Our body is the "tent" you could say of the soul and spirit (the body is a temporary dwelling place). Our soul is composed of the heart (to feel), the mind (to think), and the will (to decide).
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
I will bring him near and he will come close to me— for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?’ declares the LORD.
Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.
i hope that sharing this with you will have help you out.
experience and enjoy.
the kingdom of heaven may be the place where all those of the second birth hang out,

The Kingdom of Heaven is within You. When all of your intent is generated from the spirit self, and not the EGO self, you will not be challenged with resistance in your life. Heaven, is the reflection from the inner self to this outer world of response. This is the ultimate of spiritual expression. This spiritual self is all connected to everything and everyone but spiritually. Jesus was on this level. "Only through me will you know the Kingdom of Heaven". This is a state of mind very difficult to achieve. it means eradicating all sense of who you were when you born. This is Mastery of Self.

Remember when the bible was written they used different terminology, today I would say The Source is within you.
