Thy kingdom come…

Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. (Matthew 24:34)

.

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:2-4)

.

I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. 

I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 

For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. 

And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. (John 5:24-27)

.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 

It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,

while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:11-13)

 we pray the words

thy kingdom come

bowing our heads in church

dressed so nicely

and hearing the music

we may

or may not

think about what we are saying

“thy kingdom come”

we smile

shake hands

leave the building

and then we

lie

cheat

steal

shout

hate

in short

completely self-serving

the only kingdom we bring is

death
