    I can’t wait for the total defeat of Satan, sin, and death. Until then I pray for the kingdom to continually come in my life and those around me, that I can help others be spiritually awakened and be joined with us in The Kingdom of God.

    Interesting how I haven’t heard that much about the different words in Greek Kosmos and aion. World and age. Sure changes things a little.

  • In lesson 2 it’s interesting how he keeps saying people tend to think less of Moses. He gives all his reasons why and I guess I can see how it could make you think that way. I’ve never really felt that way towards Moses though.

    Also cool to see the comparison of Samuels mom and Mary.

    So we live in tension of the kingdom of God being partly here, but not fully here. We catch snapshots of it in between all courses life takes. And also to ask and strive for his kingdom in our daily lives is a part of it. Very cool to look at the 3 ways scripture talks about the Kingdom of God.

  • It’s so cool to see how God had such a bigger picture. Like in psalm 41:9 when David is talking about how his best friend who ate his bread, has now betrayed him. Then to see how Jesus was betrayed by Judas. An interesting pattern. And where the nation of Israel failed to please God, Jesus always succeeded and was perfect in every way.
