We have the only foundation we need--Jesus Christ HIMSELF.

It was the living, mortal apostles and prophets the NT had, which formed the foundation--Jesus Christ being the "Chief Corner Stone":

Ephesians 2:20---King James Version
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

Bonnie--there is something else about the NT church foundation and Chief Corner stone that one could note:

Ephesians 2:21----King James Version
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

The kingdom of God doesnt come with observation it is within you. We are no different from Jesus at all if we have from the same Father that what he had from Him with He in you and you in Him as one as Jesus was one in Him, John 17. Same perfections in the Father Jesus had in Him to be ye threrefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect, walk as He walks in His same light just as Jesus did, same mind, same Spirit.

Be ware of anything that would set you aside and separate from that what Jesus was in the Father yourself.

I'm not sure what your point is--or how you relate it to the specifics of the thread.

It was the living, mortal apostles and prophets which formed the foundation of the NT church--Jesus Christ being the Chief Corner Stone. How does your claim preclude that observable, physical witness?

By identification with the same Spirit in me who was in Christ Jesus. Same Spirit of God who was in all of these when He came to them in an upper room as He did in Jesus in Matt 3;16. There is no other way to know God at all without that same identification be in you. He always has been that way. Same Spirit in Adam when he became like Him, Gen 3:22, same One who came to Abraham, Moses, Mary. They all had His identity no different from anyone today.
