God’s Kingdom

Why All the Fuss?

Then I heard something like the voice of a vast multitude, like the sound of cascading waters, and like the rumbling of loud thunder, saying,

Hallelujah, because our Lord God, the Almighty,
reigns!
Let us be glad, rejoice, and give him glory,
because the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has prepared herself.
She was given fine linen to wear, bright and pure.

For the fine linen represents the righteous acts of the saints. Revelation 19:6 – 8 CSB

Have you ever wondered why we are so enchanted with Royal Weddings?

In my last post in this series, I discussed how everything God said and did pointed toward the coming of Jesus Christ.

Greetings Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that I will be taking a couple of weeks off to hang with my Grandson, Owen. When I return, we will continue our look at God’s Story, should it please the King. (I will, however, still be active on Twitter.)

In our last post, we discussed the fact that Jesus Christ had a very clear theology of the Kingdom of God because of the very central place it held in His ministry.  Our theology of God’s Kingdom tends to be rather shabby.
