[QTVOTD] Acknowledging ruler-ship…

“The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)!  Then the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin], who sit on their thrones before God, prostrated themselves before Him and worshiped, exclaiming, To You we give thanks, Lord God Omnipotent, [the One] Who is and [ever] was, for assuming the high sovereignty and the great power that are Yours and for beginning to reign.” Revelation 11:15-17 ->me: The witnesses have been taken up into heaven and there has been a great earthquake…the second woe has passed.  Now the seventh trumpet is blown and we see that in this God (and Jesus) permanently takes back His dominion and rule over the world.  When I surrendered my heart to Jesus there was a great earthquake in my life and He took possession and reign over my soul forever…but my body and mind are still here on earth.  If I take, as reality, the ownership of my life by my Savior to heart then my response should be no different than the 24 elders; I should fall down on my face and worship the One Who is King over my life.  Lord God Almighty, I have accepted your Son and in doing so you have assumed the high sovereignty and great power that are Yours in my life.  Help me to live here on earth in light of Your Majesty in heaven…understanding the power and magnitude of your presence.
