Imagine the Kingdom here

Sunday December 16th, Isaiah 35: The desert and the parched lands will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. All the lands of the earth will become as the garden of creation, filled with lush fruits, fragrant blossoms and towering orchards. All people will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God. Sounds like the Garden of Eden, but then again, isn’t that an indication of what God wants for us anyway? We can never get there on our own, but we can get a lot closer to that God intended reality. Think of spending priorities for our nation alone. Just under 500 Billion for military expenses plus the emergency funding for Iraq plus the spending hidden in other departments and you can say 7-8 hundred billion for war. At the same time a proposed increase of 11 Billion for programs that help is threatened with veto as too much. Imagine what would happen if just one nation decided to shift half of military spending to helping in this world? Imagine what would happen if the majority of the nations decided to follow suit? Imagine!! And you may be able to get just a glimpse of what God intends for humanity, and how far we have to go to get there.
