For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
When we think about the future of our planet, we worry for our children and grandchildren. What kind of world will they face in coming decades? The Bible warns that perilous times will come; but the Bible is also filled with encouragement about the future and about the coming Golden Age of Jesus Christ—the Millennium. This is when the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as waters cover the sea. This is the period when God’s people will reign with Him a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6). Satan will be bound, earthly troubles will cease, and every need will be met. There will be no want in the millennial kingdom because we’ll have all our needs fulfilled in a near-perfect world.
We don’t have to wait for the Millennium to live under the rule and reign of Jesus Christ. We can experience that now. Our hearts can be filled now with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. The principles of the kingdom can govern our lives.
Is the King at home in your heart?
There is an age coming when all earthly problems will end. One day Jesus is going to come back and set up His kingdom on this earth. But here and now, we can make Him King of our lives.
