Revelation 6:10 ‘How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood.’
It breaks our heart when we consider the injustices of this world. Everywhere, the rich and the corrupt profit ruthlessly from the sufferings of the poor without respite.
This stands in sharp contrast with the kingdom of righteousness of our Sovereign Lord that he will establish here on earth when he returns in power and glory.
Isaiah 9:7 ‘Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness, from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.’
The whole of creation has been groaning in expectation for this time.
Romans 8:22 ‘We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in pains of childbirth right up to the present time.’
And we should set our hearts on this time too, when our King returns to establish his kingdom on this earth.
Many martyrs will fall, in the tribulation days preceding the return of Christ Jesus. But yet their blood will be avenged by the demise of the enemy and the establishment of the glorious Holy City on this earth.
Hasten the day…
