"He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end." Luke 1:32,33
Kings and kingdoms rise and fall, and come and go. One of the most powerful earthly kings Nebuchadnezzar was shown this in the dream of the statue that the rock hit. There is only one Kingdom and One King that shall continue forever-- the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ.
When Jesus came to earth, the people, including His disciples thought He had come to relieve them from Roman oppression and sit up His Kingdom on earth. Well, He did... but not in the same way that they thought. He set it up in those who would crown Him as King and Lord of their lives. "The kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21) His kingdom is within the heart of His followers, but one day the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our God and then every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord!
Are you one of His followers? Is His Kingdom within you? Is He the Lord and King of your life? Have you already bowed the knee of your heart to His Lordship? If you haven't done it already willingly here and now, you will do it then, but it will be too late to make Him the King of your life in a personal way. His return is soon. He will establish His Kingdom on earth. The dream that Nebuchadnezzar had is continually being fulfilled with the rise and fall of nations and kingdoms, but one day it will be completed and Jesus will reign as Lord and King over all the earth. You have the choice now to receive Him as your King or to deny Him-- which will it be?
Have a great day. The Kingdom of God is the only eternal Kingdom, are you a part of it?
