God’s kingdom is an everlasting kingdom! And the Lord Jesus Christ is the King of that Kingdom.
As we have been studying in the book of Daniel, we have seen how common this “everlasting kingdom” is in Daniel.
- Daniel 2:47 “The king answered and said to Daniel, “Truly your God is God of Gods and Lord of kings…”
- Daniel 4:3 “How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom…”
- Daniel 4:34 “for his dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom endures from generation to generation”
- Daniel 6:26 “for he is the living God, enduring forever; his kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion shall be to the end.”
All of those instances listed above are of worldly kings who have realized that there is a king which is greater than them. That King that is greater is Jesus. Jesus is the king on the throne of David forever (1 Kings 2:45). Jesus is the King of Kings (Rev. 19:16).
Kings reign. Kings reign over people. People bow down and worship kings. Their is a king who is reigning and will reign forever in an everlasting kingdom. That Kingdom is the Kingdom of God, and that King is King Jesus!
