EQUIPPING ALL FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD
YES, THE LORD SITS AS KING FOREVER.
The Kingdom of God has a good King in Christ Jesus.
His reign as King cannot be overthrown nor ever end.
His Kingship places all things under His rule, including the citizens of the Kingdom of God; those that profess Christ as Savior and Lord. When one submits to a king's authority they are now under his care. We have seen many examples of kings throughout history demonstrate their kingship as one who is a tyrant. They are despised in their kingdom.
But as King, ruler of all, Jesus desires an intimate relationship between Him and His subjects. He has made it His duties to humble Himself to a lowly stature in order to gift His citizens as heirs of His Kingdom. Christ tends to the welfare of His people and seeks to restore all.
His Kingdom goes out beyond its walls to bring restoration and the fullness of life to the lost. All in the Kingdom of God are given purpose and value. Our identity as citizens is defined by our King and who He is.
