Our Coming King

December 14th

David, Mount Zion, and the Promise of the Kingdom

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

Daily Devotional

December 14th

In David’s vision of the crucifixion of Christ in Psalm 22, he mentioned the Kingdom. He prophesied that all nations would worship before God’s throne because of the work of Christ:

All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations (Psalm 22:27-28).

The kingdom of David would be everlasting because of the Anointed One who would be born to the genealogical line of David. Christ would come the first time to redeem us and to provide salvation to be proclaimed among all nations. As Isaiah prophesied, Christ will come the second time to sit upon the throne of David and rule over all nations:


The book of Revelation teaches us that our mouth should be singing praises to the Lamb, our eyes should be fixed on the goal of bringing Christ glory in this life, our mind should be focused on holy living, and our feet should be about spreading the Good News of the King and of His coming Kingdom.

Let us worship Him with heart, soul, and strength every minute of every day—for He is worthy.


Joy to the World!

Author: Isaac Watts

Composer: George Frederick Handel

1 Joy to the world! the Lord is come;

Let earth receive her King.

Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room,

And heav’n and nature sing,

And heav’n and nature sing,

And heav’n and heav’n and nature sing.

2 Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns;

Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

3 No more let sins and sorrows grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground;

He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found,

Far as the curse is found,

Far as, far as the curse is found.

4 He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders, and wonders of His love.
