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 his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15
When a person looks out upon this world, it does not look as though God is winning the battle against sin as a whole. Sin appears to be getting greater and greater. It appears as though fewer and fewer people are becoming followers of Jesus. Persecution against those who follow Jesus is getting greater and greater. Promotion of sinful acts appears to be more common and acceptable.
Along with the world appearing to be worse, the church appears to be getting worse. Groups of ‘believers’ are accepting sinful acts and lifestyles as being acceptable in God’s eyes. Leaders in churches are promoting sin in the name of love.
True believers may often wonder why God is allowing all of this to happen. Some may wonder if He will win in the end.
All one needs to do is read the end of the story that is told in the bible. In the end God does pour out His great wrath upon the earth and all mankind. A lot of destruction occurs. As it comes to an end, all of heaven is shouting that the kingdom of this world now belongs to God and Jesus. Jesus will reign forever and ever.
At this time, God is being patient with mankind. He is giving everyone a chance to follow Jesus. He does not want anyone to be destroyed. Yet, that will not last forever. Those who do not follow Jesus will be destroyed in the end, and God will reign.
God is in control. He needs to be allowed to be in control of the individual’s life, so that one will not be destroyed in the end.
Focus your eyes and life upon Jesus. Serve Him with all that you are. As you serve Him, trust that He is in control and will reign in the end. Jesus is the highest king that ever was and ever will be.
Allow Jesus to reign in your life today, so that in the end you will not be destroyed. You will see difficulties and troubles, but God will bring you through to the end, because He is King. Trust His reign in your life.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will trust that God is in control; that you will know Jesus will reign in the end; and that you will not fear what God is allowing in your life today.
