This is my planet! I claim it in the name of the cross!

Check out this vintage video of Gordon Fee teaching on Eschatology:

He really starts preaching at around 4:40-5:40! SO GOOD!

Gordon Fee, in this short video clip, provides a brief master class on the effectiveness of using a historical illustration to teach a Biblical principle, namely, a lesson on D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944 that signalled the death knell of Nazi Germany in WWII, which eventually was consummated on May 8, 1945 (V-Day), eleven months later. Fee ties these events to an illustration with the Kingdom of God.

At one point during this stirring clip (about the 4:16 mark) Fee exclaims:

In the coming of Jesus, God planted his flag on this enemy turf and said “This is my planet! I claim it in the name of the cross!”
