1 Chronicles 17:13-14
I will be his father and he shall be My son; and I will not take My lovingkindness away from him, as I took it from him who was before you. But I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom forever, and his throne shall be established forever.
Jesus is the Son of God, and He is settled in God’s house—on the right hand of God, the Father. At the appointed time, He will come to rule the world forever and ever. Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord. Those who made their confession before His Coming will rule with Him in the new Jerusalem. Those who rejected Him will come to recognize His Lordship, but they will know it from a distance, in torment in the lake of fire. We can’t put off the decision for Christ; we do not know the hour or the day of Jesus’ return, so we must be ready now.
Thank You, Lord, that where we spend eternity doesn’t depend on whim or chance, but upon our deliberate decision. I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I endeavor to walk in His way. Forgive me when I fall short and clothe me in His righteousness so that I spend eternity with You. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
