His Kingdom Comes - Day 81
Beginning with the truth that the Lord is king over all the earth, reading of God's promise of a coming king, Christ's declaration and explanation of the Kingdom, and culminating with a glimpse towards the day when the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, when he will reign for ever and ever.
The LORD is king! Earth, be glad! Rejoice, you islands of the seas! Clouds and darkness surround him; he rules with righteousness and justice. Fire goes in front of him and burns up his enemies round him. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees it and trembles. The hills melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the nations see his glory.
