Jesus is the Righteous Ruler We Need

“If impossible dreams are to come true, they require all the help we can get. If a task doesn’t take much effort, it probably doesn’t qualify as an impossible dream. What seemingly impossible dreams are you daring to dream?
Are you comfortable being around people who dream impossible dreams? I am. I enjoy hearing about grand schemes for making the world better. That’s one reason Christ’s kingdom message is so attractive to me. This world needs a righteous monarch who has both the wisdom to rule and the power to enforce His decisions. But it also needs someone marked by great love for all people. I believe Christ fills both those roles. “
Quote taken from a very inspiring book called “Never Too Late To Dream” by David R. Mains.

Psalm 2 speaks of God the Father placing Jesus as Ruler over all the world someday soon…

1 Why are the nations so angry?
    Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
The kings of the earth prepare for battle;
    the rulers plot together
against the Lord
    and against his anointed one.
“Let us break their chains,” they cry,
    “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”

But the one who rules in heaven laughs.
    The Lord scoffs at them.
Then in anger he rebukes them,
    terrifying them with his fierce fury.
For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne
    in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.”

The king proclaims the Lord’s decree:
“The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son.
    Today I have become your Father.
Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance,
    the whole earth as your possession.
You will break them with an iron rod
    and smash them like clay pots.’”

10 Now then, you kings, act wisely!
Be warned, you rulers of the earth!
11 Serve the Lord with reverent fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
12 Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry,
and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities—
for his anger flares up in an instant.
But what joy for all who take refuge in him!

As my friend, Hans, says after his prayers. “Come soon, Lord Jesus.”
