Blessings to the most High God, praise and honour him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation. Praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.
May the blessings of seeking the Lord’s Kingdom fall down from the throne of God upon all who are loving and looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
"But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
The Kingdom of God is the grand subject of the greatest importance, winding its way throughout God’s word, the Bible; tying all Scripture together. God, and the Lord Jesus Christ shall judge the living and the dead when he and his kingdom shall appear. Christ himself will soon come again to this earth to judge the wicked, reward the faithful, and establish his kingdom over the whole earth!
"Seeing that all things are tending toward the kingdom to be hereafter established by Christ, that the dispensations from Adam to the present are only preparatory stages for its coming manifestation, surely it is the highest wisdom to direct special and careful attention to the kingdom itself. If it is the end which serves to explain the means employed; if it is the object for which ages have passed by and are ever to revolve; if the coming of Jesus, which is to inaugurate it, is emphatically called "the blessed hope;" if it embraces the culmination of the world’s history in ample deliverance and desired restitution; then it is utterly impossible for us to determine the true significance, the Divine course, and the development of the plan of salvation without a deep insight into that of the kingdom itself. Prophets, apostles, and Jesus himself, especially in his last testimony, continually point the eye of faith and the heart of hope to this kingdom as the bright light which can clearly illumine the past and present, and even dispel the darkness of the future. Scripture and theology, the latter in its very early and later development, teach us, if we will but receive it, that we cannot properly comprehend the Divine economy in its relation to man and the world, unless we reverently consider the manifestation of its ultimate result as exhibited in this kingdom." George N. H. Peters, The Theocratic Kingdom, Introduction.
Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, will conquer all foes, and set on the throne of David, ruling with a rod of iron, covering the earth with peace and blessed-ness that shall never end (Rev. 21:3). He desires to dwell with man and pour his divine love and goodness upon all who love him and seek his presence.
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Tim. 4:8
The kingdom and crown can be ours if we only strive for it.
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
