Episode 143 – God’s Perfect Timing

Timing is everything, and no one understands this better than God. When Paul writes, “In the fullness of time, God sent forth his Son,” it’s not empty language. Daniel 2 contains an ancient prophecy about how and when God would establish His everlasting kingdom. As we’ll see in this special Christmas episode, God used four different empires to pave the way for the arrival of Jesus. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a greater sense of confidence that nothing is wasted, that everything belongs, and that God’s timing isn’t just acceptable or plausible — it’s perfect. Enjoy and Merry Christmas, Everyone!
