Eternal Repetition

I’ve shared this before, but I suppose someone needs to hear it or remember…

Five amazing words so packed with meaning! They appear in other, similar phrases throughout the Bible but today leapt out at me once again from Luke’s gospel via the angel Gabriel who proclaimed “His kingdom will never end.” -Luke 1.33b

He was speaking of Mary’s soon-to-be reality, her miraculous pregnancy though yet a virgin, and another coming and unstoppable reality:

This child would rule and reign as King over HIS kingdom -which will never end.

Never. End.

Jesus Christ, the will of God and working of the Spirit of God will never change nor require human permission or agreement to be accomplished.

He does not even require our faith to be Who He is, do what He’ll do and ultimately fully establish His kingdom in His way and His timing.

As we make our choices and create our “kingdoms” it is as essential as it is sobering, perhaps even frightening to realize only His kingdom is unending.

I choose to live with this in mind.

Paul wisely wrote to the Christians in Corinth “For no one can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1Cor. 3.11) Why? Because no other foundation is eternal -no other foundation will last.

This is an essential thing to consider.

As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
