The Advancing Kingdom - The Lord Reigns by William Plumer

The Lord Reigns!

by William S. Plumer

"The Lord reigns! He is robed in majesty!" Psalm 93:1

"The Lord reigns! Let the nations tremble!" Psalm 99:1

Jesus Christ is--

Prince and Savior,
the great Prince,
the Prince of Life,
the Prince of Peace,
the Prince of princes,
the Prince of the kings of the earth,
a King, the King,
the King of kings and Lord of lords!
He is God over all, blessed forever!

Christ's kingdom is universal. It includes:
all worlds,
all creatures,
all causes.

Nothing in heaven, nothing in earth--is outside of it. -

His saints praise Him.
The angels adore Him.
The devils are subject to Him.
The king's heart is in His hands, and He turns it wherever He will.

His kingdom rules over all.His kingdom is supreme. Nothing can shake it. Worms cannot spit their venom so as to reach the stars in their course. Nor can puny mortals reach the person or the power of our glorious Immanuel.

Christ's kingdom is omnipotent. By His own divine efficiency He carries on His government. He upholds all things by His powerful word. He does His will in heaven and in earth. Not an empire rises or sinks,but by His will. Not a sparrow falls to the ground,without His notice.

Every change on earth is by His providence. -

He gives no account of any of His matters.
His work on His people is mighty.
He subdues them to Himself.
He reigns as their Lord and Master.
He chains their great adversary.
He subdues their iniquities.
He strips the world of its fatal fascinations
.He makes them willing in the day of His power.He leads them into all necessary truth.

"Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!"~Revelation 19:6

Jon 4:2 .....thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth thee of evil (relents of sending disaster.

Joel 2:13....And rend your hearts and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth of the evil. v14; Who knoweth if he willl return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him.

So often people boast of their hyper Calvinist conections and they seem to thrive in heir hardenss of heart, and in their bibke quotaions they forget to include that our God is a God of love, He loves the sinners in a genral sense not in a saving sence, yet God is patient and merciful to the sinner for he knows thir end, and their end is the pit and eternal suffering or torment. I've evn heard Hyper Calvinists say that god is not a God of love, maybe they got carried away at that moment, maybe they wanted to win an argment so much they forgot the mecy and the long suffering of our Lord Jesus, it's easily done, that's why i send you the bove quotations- ioan
