And He Shall Reign...

Daily Reading: Revelation 10-11


Scripture Focus: Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Revelation 11:15


Devotional Thought: The book of Revelation is not for the faint of heart. The events prophesied by John are terrifying, but they are meant to extend mercy to those who have yet to repent. God is giving the wicked one last chance, and he uses many of the same methods and symbolism that he used in Israel’s history to once again showcase his glory. He leaves little room for doubt in the minds of the unbelievers as to Who is in control. Yet, sadly, not all will accept this mercy and grace.


Then enters the seventh angel. He blows his trumpet, and voices from heaven proclaim, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever,” (Rev. 11:15). Finally, God will reclaim his Kingdom! He will cleanse his creation of all sin and unrighteousness, and he will reign on his throne forever. Thousands of years after the first man and woman introduced sin into God’s perfect world, he will restore it to perfection.


For thousands of years, he has shown his power and glory. He has shown his beauty, as evidenced in creation. He has shown his love, as he sent his only Son to earth to provide us with a way back to him. He has given countless opportunities to the wicked to repent, and to accept the free gift of eternal life through Jesus. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise… but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance,” (2 Peter 3:9). As believers, we anxiously await the day that the Lord reclaims the world as his own, and we pray for the unsaved to have eyes to see and hearts to believe.

Prayer: Oh Lord, how we long for the day when you make all things new again! When you come to earth to perfect it and cleanse it from sin, to dwell with us forever. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!


Psalm of the Day: Psalm 108.1-6

1 My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! 2 Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! 3 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. 4 For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! 6 That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer me!

I was meditating this morning on the coming of the Lord. God is bringing His word to pass in His way and in His timing. I believe Him! The Father desires His church to carry His message of salvation to those without the Son, Jesus. He desires His church to live each day on purpose in His ministry of reconciliation. Amen. Thank you for this devotion today. —Pastor Carla G. Pollard
