ESI, When our prayer for God's kingdom to come will be fully realized, at last. Amen.

L.L., That reminds me of the gospel of Mark's words:

After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!" (Mark 1)

Like you well say, it's out in the open, for all to hear and obey.

I like that idea of not coming stealthily but openly. Surely the New Jerusalem is a symbol of wide-open announcement... God has arrived!

Good thoughts here Ted. I would add that, while this may be a different sphere, it is still God's sphere. It is part of the 'very good' creation of God. But it still needs to be reconciled to God through Jesus of Nazareth. God did God's part. As ambassadors we are called to speak for Jesus and say, 'Come back to God!' This is especially true in the political realm. Our actions must not be limited to just our communities but must also look at that laws that aid the debilitating situations we find within our communities. Just like Wilberforce before us, we must speak to the 'principalities and powers' of our day. All the while knowing that the 'New Jerusalem coming down from heaven' (a poetic representation of the marriage of both spheres of God's creation) is a finishing act of God's grace, the cap-stone, if you will, to the New Creation started at the resurrection of Jesus. This is why what we do here matters.

So, while I see that this 'world' is a different sphere, it is still a redeemed sphere. It is our vocation to let it know that it has been redeemed. Every day, we are one step closer to that final consummation. And we are commissioned to help bring that about through all different venues, including, but not limited to, the political one.

Peace be with you.

+ OD
