Day 19 - Christ's kingdom will never end
Prophesied in Scripture: He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed. Daniel 7:14
Fulfilled in Scripture: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end. Luke 1:31-33
We live in a world of finites. Everything has a beginning and ending, including us. Even intangibles, like ideas, are eventually lost over time. But Jesus is not of our world. Yes, he took human form and spent time here, but his kingdom exists outside the confines of time. His perfect and benevolent reign will never end. Have you ever experienced such a moment of pure joy that you wish it could go on forever? The essence of what you felt is but the most fleeting glimpse of the fulfilling rapture we will experience when we will fully enter into the presence of our Lord. Thanks be to God for Jesus allowing our complete joy to be unending!
