25.9.19

His Kingdom Come

Where is Hope?

The Saviour:"Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand."

The Martyr: "Father forgive them for they know not what they do."

The Prophet: "The Kings of the earth are a vanity, the nations are as a drop in a bucket."

The Charlatan and Jester: "Make the mortal vanity and dust of empire great again. We are the greatest" wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

The Saints: "His kingdom come."

The Sinners: "All hail the wind", grasp, grasp, grasp.

The Philosopher: "Are we looking to earthly authorities and powers or above?"

The Saviour: "My kingdom is not of this world... all authority in heaven and in earth has been given to me...heaven and earth pass away, but my word is forever."

The Prophet: "Of the increase of His government there shall be no end."

There is Hope!*
