He will reign forever . . .
Revelation 11:15 NLT
Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices shouting in heaven:
“The world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign forever and ever.”
Reflection . . .
We have much to look forward to as children of God. We are part of the Kingdom of God. It has already started. It is here among us because Christ is with us now. It is also future, something for us to look forward to as part of the Christ’s reign over all things and the New Heaven and New Earth. All things will be made new! That is so exciting!
Many passages in Revelation talk about terrible things that are going to happen and the verses preceding this one in particular. Those things are going to happen and as we need to remember, things are going to get much, much worse before they get any better. There is hope, however! Our hope is in Jesus Christ and God’s kingdom is built around Him and the work of salvation He has accomplished! It is comforting and assuring to know that no matter how bad things get, He’s got our backs and there is a Kingdom coming that we are already a part of!!
