Formatting the Jesus book for the publisher this week. Thought I’d share this clip on Jesus preaching that the kingdom is at hand.
Truly, none of us will really know eternal relief and feel total blessedness until the kingdom is consummated at the end of times, but in the kingdom now present, under the reign Jesus really did bring with real-world impact, this blessedness has begun, as a furious foretaste of glory to come. Some may argue that Jesus was only foretelling the kingdom’s arrival, not really heralding its arrival in himself, suggesting that when he said the kingdom was at hand, he only meant it would come someday soon. This is a bit like saying the light at dawn isn’t really sunlight.
