His Kingdom Will Have No End

His Kingdom Will Have No End

History is fascinating.     Since the beginning,  people have separated  from one another  to become different nations  with different kings  or rulers  of some sort.     There are countries  that existed ages ago  that no one ever heard  of these days.     Today only archeological digs can show  a little bit  about what those kingdoms  were like.     All worldly kingdoms  come and go,  fading into the dust  of time.

But,  there is one kingdom  that will never,  ever end.     It exists now  in heaven  and we can be a part of it  here on earth.     When the angel Gabriel announced  to the virgin Mary  that she was to conceive  and bear a son,  this is how he described  the eternal  King of kings  in Luke 1:30-33,

And the angel said  to her,  “Do not be afraid,  Mary;  for you have found favor  with God.     And behold,  you will conceive  in your womb,  and bear a son,  and you shall name Him Jesus.

He will be great,  and will be called  the Son  of the Most High;  and the Lord God  will give Him the throne  of His father David;  and He will reign  over the house  of Jacob forever;  and His kingdom  will have no end.”

The angel Gabriel shows  that Jesus will be the eternal King  over the house  of Jacob,  which is Israel,  but,  there is so much more  to Jesus’ kingship.     When the apostle John wrote the book  of Revelation,  this is what he saw  regarding Jesus  in Revelation 19:11-16,

And I saw heaven opened;  and behold,  a white horse,  and He who sat upon it  is called Faithful  and True;  and in righteousness  He judges  and wages war.

And His eyes are  a flame of fire,  and upon His head  are many diadems;  and He has a name written  upon Him  which no one knows  except Himself.     And He is clothed  with a robe dipped  in blood;  and His name is called  The Word of God.

And the armies  which are in heaven,  clothed in fine linen,  white and clean,  were following Him  on white horses,  and from His mouth comes  a sharp sword,  so that with it  He may smite the nations;  and He will rule them  with a rod of iron;   and He treads the wine press  of the fierce wrath  of God,  the Almighty.

And on His robe  and on His thigh  He has a name written,  “KING OF KINGS,  AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Jesus is “The Word of God” —  the “King of kings” — and the “LORD of lords”.     There is no other real ruler.     The so-called rulers  in this world  try to lord it  over the people  and demand that their heart’s desire  be done immediately.

Jesus comes quietly  and just lets our hearts  see Him.     We can accept Him  or reject Him.     No matter what we do,  it will not take away  from His kingship.     He will rule eternally  regardless of how we think  or feel  during the short life time  we are allotted.

If we are wise,  we will see His majesty,  love,  and sacrifice  on our behalf.     We will see  how He faithfully  and quietly presents us  with a view  of His grace  and mercy  —  offered freely  as a gift  of His love.     We don’t have to accept His love  or sacrifice  on our behalf.     But,  He keeps it there,  just waiting for us  to claim it  for ourselves.

He is  the one and only  real King,  and He desires  to have us  in His kingdom forever.     That’s hard to fathom  as we look at our sinful natures.     But,  the “Word of God”  is forever true  and can be trusted.     Let us give our hearts  to the “King of kings”  and begin  to enjoy His kingdom  here and now.

That’s what Christmas  is all about  —  receiving our King.     We are celebrating  the coming  of our King  into our hearts.     That is the only real reason  for a joyous Christmas celebration.

When we become a part  of Christ’s kingdom,  we will truly be free  in every sense  of the word,  no matter what is happening  around us  in this world.     Then we will say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord and King,  rule in our hearts   all our days here  on earth,  and receive us  into your eternal kingdom  to always marvel  at Your love  for us.”
