A breach is simply a hole. Something is broken. In this case, the break is in the relationship between God and humanity. Think of a a bridge between humanity and God. Death/mortality and the knowledge of good and evil put a breach in that bridge. The breach does not affect God like it does humans. God is ever present but humans are not aware of it. Therefore, it is like there is no relationship at all. The gospel repairs that breach, and once it is repaired, it should then have an effect on the old waste places. Now I am referring to actual physical waste places. These waste places are most frequently found in the inner cities of America. Yes, it is the result of neglect of many generations of individuals.
This is precisely the way in which the kingdom of God should impact the world's kingdoms. Knowing that the breach has been repaired between us and the Father, should develop a love within us that makes us want to restore the streets and rebuild the old waste places. This is precisely why Jesus said in Matthew25, "I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was naked and you clothed me, I was hungry and you fed me, I was sick or in prison and you came to see about me." When asked when they did all of these things for him his reply was, "when you did it to the least of these my brothers you did it unto me." Many have tried to say that he meant fellow Jews only, however, as the last Adam, Jesus is the ultimate representative of ALL humanity and therefore, all are his brothers and sisters.
We need to proclaim that the breach has been repaired and restored!
