A time of refeshing is coming from the Lord. It was prophesied long ago by God’s prophets. It will come upon all the earth when the Kingdom of God appears, first for a thousand years and then on into eternity with a New Heaven and New Earth. The Jews were not wrong to expect an earthly Kingdom, for it had been promised to them, but they forgot about the spiritual nature of the Kingdom. They supposed that entrance into it could be based on being physical sons of Abraham. Instead, repentance is required to enter the Kingdom of God.
And we pray:
Lord Jesus, we wait for the coming of Your glorious Kingdom to Earth, for the time when all of the kingdoms of this world will become The Kingdom of Christ. Your rule will be perfectly righteous, and You will rule with a rod of iron and dash evil doers to pieces like a potter’s vessel (Psalm 2). But even now, rule and reign in our hearts. Help us repent of our sins and turn to You in a true and living faith. Amen.
