Many Christians have a limited view of God and His Kingdom. For centuries we have viewed His Kingdom and His Kingdom agency, the Church, from the limited perspective of our own experiences and the traditions of man. With such a narrow perspective, it is no wonder most people think there has to be something more to this than what we are currently seeing. And there is!
Prophets have always been God's covenant lawyers. Under the Old Covenant, they came as God's lawyers to prosecute his case against his covenant partner, Israel. Now, in the New Covenant, they are still God's covenant lawyers, but the covenant has changed. Instead of pointing out guilt, sin, and condemnation, the New Covenant lawyer's job is to point to the New Covenant, to declare, "You are released from shame; you are forgiven; you are free!"
