The Lord reigned! – He that made the world, govern it; He that called the universe into existence, upholds and presides over it, and He rules, judges, and rewards or punishes his intelligent, free, and immortal creatures, whether men or angels. The Lord Jesus reigns the providential Kingdom is interwoven with the mediatorial and administration of both, is in the hand of Christ, who is therefore both Head of His Body ( the Church ), and Head over all things to the Church.
Psalm 96: 10 ” Say among the nations The Lord reigns; indeed; the world is firmly and securely established; it shall not be moved. He will judge and rule the people with fairness. “
Let us rejoice! – The inhabitants of the world everywhere, for hereby they are honored and benefited unspeakably: they are blessed with sure protection, a wise and equitable government, holy, just, and salutary laws ( the struggle of many political geographical nations ), and an ample provision for the supply of their wants. Though billions have been made happy in Him, YET STILL THERE IS ROOM. There is a depth in His counsels, which we must not pretend to understand. But still righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne. The most resolute and daring opposition will be confound at the presence of the Lord. And the Lord Jesus will ere long come, and put an end to idol worship of every kind.
