This article is a continuation of the sharing on, Seeing a Vision of God and His Universal Dominion: God is on the Throne Today! We need to see that One like the Son of Man is coming (Dan. 7:13-14), and to Him it was given authority, dominion, glory, and a kingdom!
Christ as a Man Receives the Kingdom!
God has given all the power and authority to Jesus Christ as the Son of Man – a Man is now on the throne, and a Man is the Lord of all (John 5:22, 27; Matt. 28:18)! It is not the Son of God, but the Son of Man; the Son of God already has a kingdom, but Christ as the Son of Man is qualified now to receive the kingdom! No man has received God’s kingdom but One – Christ!
In His ascension after His death and resurrection, Christ was brought to the throne of the Father and to Him was given dominion, glory, and a kingdom! Praise the Lord Jesus, the Son of Man! To a Man now belongs God’s dominion and divine glory and His eternal kingdom! We today take the lead to serve Him and sing the new song before the throne. The kingdom of the Lord is an eternal kingdom!
In God’s View there’s No Time Element
In Daniel 7:13-14 we see that right after Christ’s redemption He received the kingdom – with God, there’s no time element! Christ as the Lamb who has just been slain (Rev. 5) immediately ascended to the heavens and sat down, having accomplished redemption! Also, He is standing to take the scroll of God’s economy and open its seals (in God’s economy). Praise the Lamb, He is worthy! With us there’s a very obvious time element, and we are still waiting for the Lord to come in glory with God’s kingdom to bring it to the earth.
We See this in the New Testament Age
Daniel didn’t see the age of the church, the gap, and neither did David, Isaiah, and the other seeking ones / prophets in the Old Testament. But now we see this, in the age of the church. The age of mystery has been hidden in the ages, but it has been revealed to the holy apostles and prophets in spirit. Hallelujah, now we can see that Christ has received the kingdom (in God’s eyes) and He will soon return to bring God’s kingdom to the earth! Come, Lord Jesus!
