✝TEXT: Revelation 11:14-19(NKJV)
11:14. The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.
11:15. Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become [the kingdoms] of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
11:16. And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God,
11:17. saying: “We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
11:18. The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”
11:19. Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
✝🗒 STUDY: Today’s text begins with an announcement: “The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.”The seventh angel sounded the trumpet and loud voices were heard in heaven declaring, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever!” It means Christ has conquered and has wrest authority from the prince of the power of the air who had charge of this world’s system. God is fulfilling His mystery concerning the world. Satan and His host have been deposed and the Lord Jesus now reigns supreme and the reign will last forever and ever. To this end, the 24 elders rejoiced, proclaiming the greatness of God’s power. They also reveal to us that while the reign of Christ will bring terror and destruction to those who had scoffed, mocked and rejected the Saviour, His servants, as well as those who fear His name, small and great, shall be rewarded.
Dear reader, Satan is the prince of the power of the earth – he calls the shot in the world’s system and causes affliction and pain for men. However, his reign will soon come to an end; the Lord Jesus will take from him what rightly belongs to Him. Again, it has not been easy for God’s servants and all who fear His name across the world to live facing challenges from the prince of the power of the air and his host. Christians are persecuted, defamed, rejected, denied rights and even killed for the sake of the cross of Christ. But nay, we rejoice for Christ presently reigns in us and He will yet reign as King over all the kingdoms of this world. Then, we will be rewarded for our love for Him. At that time, those who persecuted and rejected our Saviour will be brought under divine judgement; terror and destruction will be their lot. While the people of the world shall lament and weep, we will rejoice at Christ’s reign. We will reign with Him eternally. Let us thus be encouraged.
✝🙏PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to be patient and consistent with you so I might reign with you, Amen.
