“On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.” (Psalms 62:7)
“Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”” (Mark 1:14–15)
Jesus is time fulfilled. Jesus is the kingdom of God. Jesus is the gospel—the good news. He came at just the right time. Jesus, creator of time and space, breaks into finite time to restore what has been broken and lost. He, like the prophets of old, calls us to repent and believe. In fact, all the Old Testament prophets have been pointing the way to this very time. The time is at hand.
