i like this…
God is now creating a new reality on earth, a reality to come first among men but finally over all creation, so that the earth and the heavens are renewed.
God is creating something new.
A new history is starting.
A new world is coming to earth.
from a german dude called Blumhardt…
there’s a great bunch of free ebooks over at www.plough.com written by or about Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt. i recommend to start with these two… awakening & thy kingdom come…
When Blumhardt, a 19th-century pastor from the Black Forest, agreed to counsel a tormented woman in his parish, all hell broke loose – literally. But that was only the beginning of the drama that ensued.
…Beginning in the fall of 1841, Blumhardt was drawn into a spiritual struggle, which he referred to for the rest of his life as “the fight.” At first he tried to keep a cautious distance from it, but it soon became obvious that he would not be able to stay uninvolved.
Christians the world over pray “Thy kingdom come” daily, but do they know what they are asking for? These short selections will spark a burning expectation for this kingdom to break into this world, here and now.
