The Lord does whatever pleases Him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; He sends lightning with the rain, and brings out the wind from His storehouses (Psalm 135:6–7).

This is the “core” idea. I have, on several occasions, thought that the main/central theme of the Bible should be “sin,” or “covenants,” or “promises”… etc. But, as I study the Bible, I recognized that the Kingdom is the main/central theme even though the topics such as sin, covenants, promises are crucial in the biblical history. This can be noticed throughout the Bible. For example, Ps. 47:7 and Ps. 95:3 speaks of God being the King! The “King” aspect is an eternal one. God was/is King from the eternity past to eternity future.

When man sinned, that is, when sin entered the world, which once was “very good” (not perfect, but very good), the theocratic aspect of Kingdom was shattered. Will that ever be restored? Yes! When Messiah comes back, He will restore it!

How will this happen? I explained this in the episode!
