One Day the Kingdom will Come

Today at 3BC, we’ll focus on Jesus’ explanation of the arrival and activity of the kingdom, as told through several parables.  But, before we get to that, we’ll proclaim together, with the prophet Isaiah, that Christ will one day reign in glory with his Father, and it will be forever and ever!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore. Isaiah 9:6-7 ESV

Then, we’ll sing together that Jesus – the one who descended from heaven and became obedient to death, the one who conquered death and who is now worshiped in heaven – will reign forever, worthy of all praise.

From the brightness of His glory
Jesus the Son of God descends
Takes on the nature of a servant
Jesus, obedient to death
The Father willed to crush Him
As a sacrifice for sin
He satisfied God’s justice
And in victory rose again

You are highly exalted
Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
You are reigning in glory
Jesus, You’re the King
Over everything
Exalted to the highest place
Given the name above all other names

The tomb is empty, Christ has risen
Jesus, the Lamb, once crucified
The angels never cease to worship
Jesus, in heaven glorified
To Him belongs the power
The wisdom, might, and strength
All glory and dominion
To the Lord of every age

Our knees will bow
Our tongues proclaim
That You are Lord of all
