Kirk: between the times

Saturday, September 30, 2017
    He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
    —Revelation 22:22 (NIV)
    We are living “between the times”—the time of Christ’s resurrection and the new age of the Spirit, and the time of fulfillment in Christ. Life in the Spirit is a pledge, a “down-payment,” on the final kingdom of shalom. In the meantime, we are to be signs of the kingdom which is, and which is coming.
    ... David Kirk (1935-2007), Quotations from Chairman Jesus, Springfield, Ill.: Templegate Publishers, 1969, p. 69 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 22:20; 2 Cor. 1:21-22; Gal. 3:14; Eph. 1:13-14; 4:30
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your return is our message and our hope.
