FRIDAY, AUGUST 1
Scripture: Acts 1:4-7
Acts 1:6,7 state, “Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, ‘Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority/ex-oo-see-ah.” The government of God resident in authority/ex-oo-see-ah has two components that are very important. One is called Chronos and the other is called Kairos. Chronos refers to a set time, as measured by a calendar. Kairos is the thumbprint of what God does during that season. The times and seasons refer to two different demonstrations of Godly authority covering the beginning and end (chronos) and what God does in it (kairos). Chronos, or times, has a set beginning and a set ending. Kairos, or seasons, have no set beginning or ending. In Godly government, God can show up to do a very specific task and it lasts as long as God wills and as long as the church can manage to maintain it by staying in righteousness.
