The most earth-shaking event in the history of the world is the event of God becoming king, assuming his rightful authority and establishing his kingdom. It is the event for which Jesus taught us to pray in the Lord’s Prayer when we say, ‘Thy kingdom come.’ It is the event that Jesus preached most about—a very high proportion of Jesus’ sermons and a very high proportion of Jesus’ parables and a very high proportion of Jesus’ miracles and a very high proportion of Jesus’ exorcisms were about the kingdom of God. Listen to the first sermon in our Advent series for 2017 preached by the Rev'd Dr Jules Gomes at St Augustine's Church on December 3, 2017. Our readings are Isaiah 9:1-7, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11 and Matthew 24:36-44.
