Our God Reigns

Thursday, May 25, 2017

In Psalm 96:10, we read, "Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously." This verse looks forward to the millennial kingdom. When God takes his throne and manifestly reigns, the earth is at once "established," settled, placed on firm footing. Instead of the continuance of international chaos in human history, the world will be settled and efficiently managed by the Messiah.

The Lord Jesus is also God the judge, who gives sentence on the "peoples" with equity. So not only will the Lord establish international peace and stability in the future messianic kingdom, but he will also rule the world with impeccable justice. Therefore, tell the nations that Jehovah reigns! He rules the world. His power can never be overthrown. He will judge all nations fairly! May the Lord bless you this week, and remember that God loves you and so does First Baptist Church.
