29 Apr Heaven is a Kingdom: The Reason Foolish Young Socialists Really Want Jesus
2 Samuel 7:12-13 – When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you…and I will establish his kingdom…I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
Hebrews 11:16 – …they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.
One day, the Bible says that Jesus Christ will return to the earth as King of Kings, and establish a Kingdom that will never end. Following Him into this world will be the entire Kingdom of the unseen realm with departed saints and divine beings (including angels) in His wake.
This world does not need another political party.
This world does not need another political candidate.
This world does not need another election.
This world does not need another theory of government for yet another national experiment.
What this world does need is one benevolent ruler filled with grace – funded with unlimited resources and fueled by the desire to glorify God by doing good for people.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, no one will be hungry, no one will be homeless, and no one will be helpless.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, there will be no war, no worry, and no weariness.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, there will be no sin, suffering, or shame.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, there will be no tears, trials, or troubles.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, there will be no pollution, politics, or problems.
Everyone who has been frustrated with this world, angry at their government, voted in an election, said something stupid on social media, marched in a protest, signed a petition, or shed a tear really truly wants the Second Coming of Jesus Christ whether they know it or not. This world is the problem. This means the solution has to come from another world into this world. His name is Jesus Christ.
In our day of pandemics and politics along with blame-shifting and brutal screaming, it’s kind of cute to watch younger folks think that we can lift the cure, heal the environment, give everyone everything for free and do it all without God. That is the demonic counterfeit of the Kingdom of God and the answer is not to be found on the right or the left but in the sky where one coming on the clouds of Heaven will return to take back all that is rightfully His.
What do you find most frustrating about government this week?
