Thy Dominion Endures

Things in this world are so temporary.     Each bit of creation  has its own life span,  whether it is the life span  of a flower,  butterfly,  tree,  human,  elephant,  tortoise, or whatever.     As we read history,  we can see  that kingdoms come and go.     The power  of earthly rulers is only  for a certain time — even though they might act  like their rule will be forever.

Earthly rulers can become extremely arrogant  and nasty  in their greed  for power over people.     The people suffer  under their oppression  and it feels like there is no end  to their ruthlessness.     But,  history has shown  that each ruler comes  to an earthly end.     And,  not a one of them gets  to take his authority  beyond his grave.     Once he dies,  he has to face  the eternal Creator,  Ruler,  and Judge  over all.

God’s kingdom is totally different  from anything  in this world.     God rules  with eternal love,  mercy,  kindness,  patience,  and pure righteousness.     It is in holiness  that God will judge everyone  who has ever lived — and all His judgments  will be righteous.     No one will be able  to object  because God judges  in truth.

The mercy of God  will see all  of His faithful children  as pure and holy,  based on their faith  in Jesus Christ — just as He promised.     They will all  be a part  of His eternal kingdom.     In Psalm 145:13,  King David praise God  and said,

Thy kingdom  is an everlasting kingdom,    
And Thy dominion endures  throughout all generations.

It will be ever so good  to live  in God’s kingdom  in blessed peace  and security forever,  without end.

Now is the time  to put our faith  in the trustworthiness  of our eternal Creator,  Sustainer,  and Redeemer — if we want  to be in His kingdom  for all of eternity.     Only the LORD God  truly rules forever.     Everything else is temporary  and will be judged  for eternity.

Putting our hope  and faith  in the free salvation we have  in Jesus Christ,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  Your kingdom and majesty are everlasting.     How good it is  to have the peace  of knowing Your love  and salvation.”

Love,
Margaret
