In Many Languages.
I love the languages. I love the diversity. I love the Kingdom of Heaven. One of the things that really fascinate me about the Kingdom of Heaven is that it is made up of folks from all over the world and of every ethnic, race, economic, and social class. This was certainly true of the church that Debi and I planted in Northern California back in 04. I still remember getting together with believers from the former Soviet Union and lifting up prayers in English, Russian, and Kazak. This was the picture we had today at our weekly prayer meeting at The Crossings. We have begun some initial conversations with a Hispanic church plant in our area about a potential partnership and some of those folks came today. We had a great time. From The Corssings, we had people from America, (Texas), Trinidad, and Honduras. We had representatives from El Salvador and Guatemala from the Hispanic church plant. Though from different nationalities, we were all the same at the throne of Christ worshiping together and interceding together. It all reminds me of what John witnessed 2000 years ago as recorded in the Book of Revelation, 7:9-10
“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.”
Wow, that’s amazing. It speaks again that the hope for unity in the world is not the UN, but the love to Christ. Yup, I really do love the Kingdom. “Slava Boga!”
