THINK ON THESE THINGS - WEDNESDAY

A KINGDOM, A KINGDOM, A KINGDOM FOR HIM, OF COURSE....Part 1
The word "Kingdom" does not carry much weight in today's society. Because of the abuse of monarchs and dictators towards their people, since time began,  us westerners do not care much for kings and kingdoms. In fact America was founded when the oppressive British Empire and King George 3 were both kicked out of here in the American War of Independence.


The popular worship song "Something About that Name" has a line in it which goes "kings and kingdoms will soon pass away..." What kings? What kingdoms? Well, in bible terms, these are words used to mean the Rulers of the countries of this perishing earthly system. 


This leads us to the final phrase in our indepth two week daily study of the LORD'S PRAYER, which the Lord Jesus gave to show us how to prayer.



Matthew 6: 8-13:
Our Father in heaven,
      Hallowed be Your name.
      Your kingdom come.
      Your will be done
      On earth as it is in heaven.
      Give us this day our daily bread.
   And forgive us our debts,
      As we forgive our debtors.
    And do not lead us into temptation,
      But deliver us from the evil one.
      For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

The Coming 1000 year Kingdom on earth is God's way of transition from this horrible fallen earthly system to the Eternal Realm.  This will happen after the coming Tribulation and the Wrath of God, on the pagan kings, leaders, presidents and dictators of this world who rejected the Lord Jesus. 

The progression from the natural to the supernatural state, of believers who have now been raised in Christ, re-establishes the ORIGINAL Order of things, when God created Adam and Eve. 

HIS IS THE KINGDOM. HIS IS THRONE.
WORSHIP CHRIST THE KING AND HIM THE KING, ALONE. 
Pray this with me:
FOR YOURS IS THE KINGDOM: Lord, You are Ruler of the Universe. At creation all the morning stars sang together and the Angels shouted for joy, even Satan before he tried to take over in Heaven.  Father, he is the prince of this world and what a sick, perverted, evil and corrupt world it is. But his time is coming. You said to my Lord “sit at My Right Hand and I shall make Your enemies a footstool” When Your Son returns in righteous power and majesty, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Thank you Father, for Your Majesty for You alone are Holy, Holy, Holy, oh Lord God Almighty. The whole world is full of Your Glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
