The Lord Shall Be King

And the LORD shall be king over all the earth; in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Zechariah 14:9

Many of the prophecies found in the books of the Old Testament prophets deal with the future second coming of the Lord and His literal, earthly reign.  It’s nice sometimes to sit back and think about what a great thing that will be.  Think about the Lord Jesus Himself ruling and being the King.  He will be King over all of the Earth.  That will be a wonderful day.  There will be no more corruption in high offices because Jesus will be the King.  There will be no more lying politicians because Jesus will be King.  There will be no more unjust judgment because Jesus will be totally in charge.  What a great world that will be.

The verse also says that, in that day, there shall be one Lord.  There are many false gods and false “lords” running around today.  In fact, there are probably more people in the world today who believe in false gods than believe in the one true God.  In fact, there are many people who try to put themselves in the position of “lord.”  But not in that day.  In that day, there will be one Lord, the Lord Jesus.  Everyone will know that He is Lord.  There will be no doubts and no questions.  Can you imagine a world in which everyone knows the name of the Jesus and in which nobody questions the fact that He is indeed the Lord?

Sometimes looking around at our current world can get demoralizing.  It is then that we should stop looking around and start looking up.  Jesus is coming again!  That is our “blessed hope.”  There is coming a wonderful day!
