God does not hide things from us, but for us.My goal is that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, Colossians 2.2-3

“The time is fulfilled, the kingdom of God is at hand” Mark 1:15

Both the ‘time’ and the ‘kingdom’ assumes the whole history of Israel and its growing Messianic expectation

slide5

Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created man on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation . . . like all the things the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?

Deuteronomy 4:32-34

Power and control are not authority

  • Authority is released to those committed to kingdom expansion.
