Hello there dear Robert. Thank you for these interesting remarks. They take us into so many directions. Because the Kingdom is here and it is truly all-inclusive. He is Lord of everything. So, things like maps and demographics are included in his comprehensive plan for our planet.
God would have us know, that despite the unforced will of man, it is He who determines the occupants of all the places on the map. How it can be - I cannot comprehend.
But I like this text. It has a happy ending, you see:
Acts 17:26-27 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
God put them in their place that they might seek him.
It's truly a changing world, no? People in high places are now espousing "open borders."
Let's pray that the Almighty will "re-draw the map" and that multitudes from every background and locality will unite at the foot of His Cross. And that brotherly love will prevail. And that the church would, at last, become the servant church.
