Enjoy Kingdom Today
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb”. Isaiah 11:6a.
One of the amazing characteristics of the Kingdome of Messiah will be the total transformation. Even the wild animals will be changed. Enmity between animals will be gone. Cruelty of the wild animal will be vanished. “The Leopard shall lie down with the young goat. The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze…”
Hostility between beasts and man will also disappear. Every creature will recognize the creator and His authority. The condition of the Garden of Eden will be restored. Absolute change: humility, harmony and peace among God's creation. What a wonderful age that would be!
While God's people and even the whole creation waits for that Day, we often forget that through the Lord Jesus Christ we can experience similar transformation in the spiritual realm. Not just theoretically but in practical life.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Do not just wait for millennium to unfold to be free of bitterness and hatred! When Christ rules our heart, spiritually we are in His Kingdom! We are supposed to live by His precepts and principles. No wonder the Lord declared ‘ Kingdom of God is in you'.
True Christian life is living under the Lordship of Christ; hence a believer is able to live as if He is in His kingdom enjoying not only the blessings but even the transformations the Lord produces within him. Is there any evident changes in our life and practice even as we claim new life in Christ?
