MATTHEW 6:10_Thy kingdom come…
We have already discussed the Apostle John’s vision. Revelation 21:1 (KJV), “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” John sees something new. The former things are no more. He sees a brand new heaven and a brand new earth
Let’s gain a little more insight and read verse 4, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.“
This new world sounds very good. Perhaps more like the Garden of Eden before the only two people on the planet decided there was a better plan.
I like no more tears. I like no more death. I like no more sorrow. I like no more crying. I like no more pain.
Now check out verse 5, “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”
I like all things made new.
Jesus includes that we pray for this new kingdom to come. Thy kingdom come – this is God’s kingdom.
No wonder it will be perfect!
God Who Makes New, Praise Your great power that You will bring a new kingdom. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ knows there will be a new kingdom—He has told me!
