Jesus believed that Abba controls history by virtue of the conduct of human beings by their free choices.
These choices relate to active values. The active values one chooses determines one's conduct.
The active values of Jesus are tolerance, democracy and helpfulness. The root value is non-idolatry - honoring Abba alone and suffering none to take his place.
Only those who accept and live by these values are able to move history in the direction of being a bit more like heaven, as Jesus suggests in the Lord's Prayer.
