Jesus shall reign forever and ever

Revelation 11 :
15. Then the seventh angel sounded:
And there were loud voices in heaven, saying,
"The kingdoms of this world
have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ,
and He shall reign forever and ever!"
New King James Bible

The time being spoken of in this passage is still in the future.
And in these busy days leading up to Christmas you may wonder what is the relevance of an event that is still in the future.

This incident is important today to help us keep our perspective on our Christmas celebration.

Many of us like to get nice cuddly feelings about the Baby in the manger. But we need to keep in mind who He really is, and the real reason for His coming as a Baby in Bethlehem.

The kingdoms of this world are at present in the hands of God's enemy and ours: Satan. But the reason why Jesus was born as a human being, was to take them back from Satan. He struck the first blow when He died on the cross and came back alive from death.

But at the time of the event spoken of in Revelation chapter 11, the Lord Jesus Christ would have succeeded in completing the mission He set out to accomplish: to bring the kingdoms of the world under the rulership of Almighty God, our heavenly Father.

Then Jesus Christ shall reign as King of kings and Lord of lords forever and ever!

Father, help me today to understand the true meaning of Christmas: that it was the first assault of Your offensive against Satan.
Thank You for including me on Your side of the war, which is still in progress today.
And I look forward to the day when
The kingdoms of this world
would have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ,
and He shall reign forever and ever!
