“Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion,” Psalm 2:6.
From the beginning God has been redeeming creation back to Himself, back to a kingdom where His Redeemer is the preeminent monarch, King of kings and Lord of lords.
Mankind has need of a king who will guide his heart back to God. Otherwise, man does that which is right in his own eyes, and that is Satan’s playhouse.
In America, we love the idea of democracy. Democracy is wonderful as along as the nation’s leaders guide the people back to the source of all the blessings. However, in a democracy there is a possibility that Satan’s advocates can lead the nation away from God. One nation under God, without God, does not exist. Isaiah warned Israel, “O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths” (Isa. 3:12). We must pray for our leaders, but always remember that one day Jesus Christ will sit on the throne as God’s King, and those who know Him as Savior will rule and reign with Him for a thousand years.
When God’s King sets up God’s kingdom, “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. . . . I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son” (Rev. 21:4-8).
The only way to enjoy a rulership is to be the child of the ruler. Think about it (John 3:36).
