The history of the Old Testament unpacks God's Kingdom promises one by one.
1. God's Place: The Promised Land - "To your offspring I will give this land" (Gen 12:7).
2. A Kingdom Under Human Kings - A human king to exercise this rule under God. The pinnacle of the Partial Kingdom, but it all came crashing down so quickly.
3. What did the Partial Kingdom Achieve? The partial Kingdom was a model. It revealed:
- What God is like; What His Kingdom is like; What people are like.
What should we learn from the Partial Kingdom?
- A warning against falling away
- Gratitude. Thankfulness for God's grace.
