Thought For Today: “God’s Kingdom Has Come”
Jesus said, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand.” (Mark 1:15a)
Jesus didn’t say that the Kingdom of God was about to come; instead, He said that it had come. In other words, a Kingdom is wherever the King is!
Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16), and at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven, on the earth, and even under the earth, and every tongue will confess the Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father (Philippians 2:10-11).
Reading from the scroll of Isaiah, Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” (Isaiah 61:1)
And then Jesus said, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (Luke 4:21)
Jesus said that the Kingdom of God has arrived. The day of release, pardon, renewal, and new life has arrived.
And so, the time was fulfilled and is fulfilled; the Kingdom of God has come.
So, we need to follow the King’s announcement, as Jesus went on to say, “Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:15b)
