The violence of God's Kingdom

I've been wanting for some time to share Jared Wilson's thoughts on violence of the Kingdom of God:
So that’s what the kingdom does. Its arrival is violent, cataclysmic, shaking strongholds, putting the fear of God into rulers and religious leaders. It knocks the enemy out and sets the enemy’s prisoners free. It turns the tables over in the worldly culture. It turns almost everything upside down, which is to say, in God’s view, rightside up.
Amen. I recommend Jared's whole essay.
