Kingdoms and thrones are in place, their daily administrations carried out by those who live under their government. Often reins of power and societal dominance belong to those who do not know God, and have no intention of ever knowing Him. These are the power brokers among men whose true value will be measured according to Revelation 11:15: “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.”
And among God’s people there are also kingdoms and thrones in place, governments already possessed by the Lord whose Kingship has no end, whose rule is unlimited and whose power is enforced as the love of God for all men. God’s people deal in His power and are the intercessor-agents who establish heaven’s influence on earth…on earth as it is in heaven!
God gives power to His people to advance mankind, raising them to the possibilities established by His Son who died to ensure their future. Our LORD does not advance Himself—He advances men in His image who in turn exalt Him with their worship and gratitude.
The power of God is not invested in a shrine or image of someone now dead. God’s Kingdom is very much alive and the prophet Jesus is alive, evidenced by the lives of those who carry out His government on earth—power brokers of a society unlimited in God’s love, eternally vast in its reach, and perfectly aligned for the dignity of every man and for every race; His really is the kingdom, and the power and the glory. That’s our prayer.
