He will reign forever and ever

I wrote about this yesterday in thinking about the mystery of God that has been accomplished. Some people have wondered: what is the mystery? To me, I think the answer is simple. God will reign as King over all of the earth. He will come again in the form of Jesus Christ to reign over his people on the earth.

And that is where the breaking of scrolls leads us. The Lamb is breaking the seals one at a time, and upon breaking the seventh seal, there are seven angels who blow their trumpets with various events that follow each of these trumpet blasts.

And then we come to the final trumpet blast. The end. The final judgment. And what happens?

The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”

Revelation 11:15

The world becomes that of the Messiah. Jesus is King already, but now we see that he defeats all of his enemies. Everything that stands in opposition to Jesus is wiped away. Destroyed forever. Instead, this kingdom of the world becomes Jesus’s Kingdom. And he will reign over this Kingdom forever.

This is the reality of the end of time that we are waiting to be accomplished. Are these times near? Only the Father knows the timing, but it certainly seems as if history is culminating and aligning with the scripture in these days. So to this I say Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus!
