Thy kingdom come

"Jesus taught that the Kingdom is not only in the distant future or a futuristic contemplation: it exists here and now. The Kingdom of Heaven will come, but it has already come. The world will be judged, but is already being judged. ‘Now is the judgment of this world’ said Christ when He proclaimed the gospel for the first time. Elsewhere He said ‘and this is judgment that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light…’ The judgment began during Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, and spread to Jerusalem, Golgotha, the Roman Empire, Europe in the Middle Ages, Russia, and into this century and beyond. The judgement will continue through human history, because history is Christian as the world keeps step with the Son of Man."
