THE KINGDOM OF GOD, PART 2
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
The kingdom of God will come with great external pomp and glory, and Christ will come to reign, to judge, and to set up His everlasting kingdom.
Let me give you Christ's own words: "Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel" (Matthew 19:27-28). That is it. The Son of Man will come and sit in the throne of His glory. This is "the regeneration," He says, and this is the great message about the visible form of the kingdom that is to come. It means that...the Son of God will return again into this world. He will set up the judgment throne, and He will judge the whole world in righteousness.
Nature is now "red in tooth and claw," but it will not be so then: "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them" (Isaiah 11:6). This is "the generation," and it is coming....There will be a realm of glory, and He will sit upon His throne in that glory.
A Thought to Ponder
There will be a realm of glory, and He will sit upon His throne in that glory.
