“The Kingdom of Yeshua: An Unchanging and Just Reign”
Throughout history, kingdoms have often been marked by the rise and fall of monarchs, many of whom start with noble intentions but eventually succumb to the corrupting influences of power and wealth. In contrast, the Kingdom of Yeshua (Jesus) as described in Christian theology, promises a reign that is unchanging, just, and free from human flaws such as greed and envy. This post will explore this concept and its implications.
Section 1: The Problem with Human Kingdoms
Human kingdoms, whether historical or contemporary, often face the issue of corruption. Even when a king or queen begins their reign with the intention of doing good for their people, the immense power and wealth at their disposal can lead to a distortion of judgment. This can result in a reign marked by self-interest, injustice, and, in many cases, the neglect of the very people they vowed to serve.
Section 2: The Kingdom of Yeshua: A Different Kind of Reign
In stark contrast to human kingdoms stands the Kingdom of Yeshua. As described in the New Testament, Yeshua’s Kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36). It is a spiritual kingdom where Yeshua reigns as an unchanging and just king. Unlike human rulers, Yeshua is depicted as being free from greed, envy, and the corrupting influence of power. His laws are based on love, justice, and righteousness.
Section 3: The Unchanging Nature of Yeshua
One of the key attributes of Yeshua’s reign is His unchanging nature. As stated in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” This constancy provides a stark contrast to human rulers, whose policies and priorities can shift over time or under the influence of power and wealth.
Section 4: The Just Rule of Yeshua
Yeshua’s rule is also characterized by justice. He is depicted as a king who will judge the world in righteousness (Acts 17:31). His reign promises to uphold what is right and to bring justice to those who have been oppressed. This commitment to justice, combined with His unchanging nature, positions Yeshua as the perfect king.
The Kingdom of Yeshua offers a vision of a reign marked by constancy, justice, and righteousness – qualities that human kingdoms often struggle to uphold. This Kingdom, free from the flaws of greed and envy, promises a rule that truly serves the best interests of the people. It presents a hopeful vision of a perfect king, something humanity has longed for but has never been able to achieve.
