Revelation 11:15-19 ~ Your Kingdom Come

on July 27, 2014

The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever. (vs. 15b)

God is sovereign over this world, yet it is in the hands of men who dishonor, oppose and even hate Him. This world is sin-sick, rebel-ridden, and destruction-destined because of the hearts of man.

In the Lord’s prayer we are taught to say, “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”  A time is coming when evil will be eradicated for all time and God will set up an earthly kingdom where He alone will reign.  He will judge those who ignore and oppose Him in wrath and will reward all who serve Him, speak His truths, believe in Him, fear, honor and respect Him–great and small.

When His Kingdom comes–it will be in unavoidable power and fullness of glory.

We give thanks to you, LORD God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign.  The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth. (vs. 17-18)

Our Father in Heaven, holy is your name.  Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!
