With the world in so much turmoil today it’s good to know God is moving us to a defined and wonderful future. Most of us would like to see it get here sooner, but we need to trust that God is doing the right thing by delaying. When the time is right Jesus Christ will return and establish the promise new world. And it will be something to see. We have short description of how it will be in a prophecy found in Isaiah 9:6 & 7.
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end,
upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
The Picture is of an ever-expanding kingdom characterized by peace. Led by Jesus Christ. The Son of God given to be born as a man. That is the future. For now God is dealing with the fact we have all strayed out of bounds, we’ve sinned. That means we are not qualified to live in that wonderful kingdom. We are dead to that future. That is unless we have believed in Jesus Christ for everlasting life. It seems God’s plan is to pre-qualify everyone who will populate the New World to come. Deal with the risks of free will now once and for all. I’ll explain how He is doing that next by looking at the Apostle John’s record of Nicodemus’ meeting with Jesus Christ in John chapter 1. I’ll write about that next. In the mean time why not read it for yourself.
