Advent, Christmas and the Kingdom of God Jeff Doles ... Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. ... Again, the kingdom is like leaven that a woman works into a large batch of flour. It is a small amount, ...

CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT THE BIRTH OF A KING ~ AND THE COMING OF A KINGDOM! Advent is a time of waiting and preparation. Advent comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “coming.” In ancient Rome, the adventus was a ceremony in honor of the emperor, welcoming him into the city. The Christian season of Advent is a time of watching and welcoming that focuses on the coming of Jesus, God’s Anointed King, into the world. At Christmas, we celebrate the first coming of King Jesus, when He established the kingdom of God. But we also keep an eye toward the second coming, when He will return once again and the kingdom of God will fill all the earth. In the meantime, we live between the comings as the kingdom of God increases and multiplies. In Let Earth Receive Her King, we will explore some of the ancient promises God made to Abraham, David and the Old Testament prophets. We will also consider how the hope of Israel and the salvation of the world began to be realized two thousand years ago as we look at the Christmas story in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and taste of the rich meaning of the Incarnation in the Gospel of John and the letters of Paul. Let us together prepare our hearts and increase our expectation about what God has done at Christmas, is doing now in this present time and will do next in the world through His kingdom — and His King, Jesus the Messiah.

"Do you know anyone who experienced two World Wars in Germany and survived to talk about it? You do now! Welcome to Laughter Wasn't Rationed and the historical war memoir of Dorothea von Schwanenflügel Lawson. She will take you from the Weimar Republic to the Berlin Wall, and give you a first-hand account of her life that is full of historical facts - the perspective of an ordinary citizen not found in history books. Vintage photos accompany her journey. As a native German born during World War I, Dorothea takes us from her relatively carefree youth through the much-staged rise and fall of Hitler and his Nazi Party, World War II and the devastating postwar years, up to the beginnings of the Cold War. Through her, you will experience the air raids and intense bombing of Berlin, the ever-present hunger, the Soviet invasion and other day-to-day struggles. You will not only see the grim realities of life, but are treated to many jokes about the Third Reich that were once punishable by imprisonment or by death. You will also enjoy a small dose of German culture along the way, as well as her conversational style. Unfortunately generations die out and the experiences of real people are lost forever. Dorothea's insight is invaluable, and has been recognized by several universities that are using her book and knowledge of Europe in their history courses."--Publisher description.
