A Glimpse of the Coming King

by Dick Hill

I am a fan of The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien. My favorite of the three books is The Return of the King. I am always emotionally stirred by the words from the movie version of the book spoken by the white wizard, Gandolf, when he was finally placing the crown upon the head of Aragorn, the true king of Gondor. He said, “Now come the days of the king, and may they be blessed.”

There is coming a time when the King of this entire universe, the Lord Jesus Christ, will return to this earth and be crowned King over all of His created order. This small planet, so seemingly unimportant, will become the center of our God’s amazing plan for this universe. This universal reign will commence when Christ establishes a kingdom over a redeemed earth and reigns over it for a thousand years (Revelation 20:6–9). The Lord Jesus Christ will at that time turn this kingdom over to His Father, who will transform it into a new heaven and a new earth wherein will dwell righteousness forever.

The thousand-year segment of this everlasting kingdom will allow God to finally and forever demonstrate to the human race and the angelic realm that the only political system that will ever work for man is one in which God alone rules over the hearts of men. It will not be a democracy, nor a republic, nor socialism, nor communism. It will be the kingdom ruled over by our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord’s kingdom will place on display the immense value of the second member of the Holy Trinity. It will be a time for the Christ to have His day in the sun.

Just imagine a world dominated by what is right and fair. The new world will be ruled by a perfect government, bringing true peace on earth and good will toward men. All weapons of war will be remade into instruments for growing food. No nation will dare to be aggressive against other nations, and war will be no more. The curse from the Fall will be removed and the environment will be restored to the pre-fall beauty of the Garden of Eden. Wild animals will no longer eat each other in order to survive, and small children will have no fear of any of them. This will be a world ruled by a perfect and glorious ruler.

Imagine a time when there will be no fear of deadly natural disasters or uncontrollable diseases. Envision a time when every court will deliver perfect justice for every case, when truth will be established in every conflict, and when all who deceive will be exposed and swiftly judged. Picture a world where all children from every race and nationality will be fully educated by the King. Physical deformities and social, political, and religious oppression will be no more. All forms of slavery will be abolished.

Imagine a world where length of life will be restored, and the elderly will not grow feeble or lose their hearing or sight and will not fear Alzheimer’s disease or cancer but will grow old with clarity of mind and a sound body. Imagine a world where what is appropriate and right marks every aspect of life, including relationships between people, businesses, and governments. A world where there is absolute permanent peace, and that peace is enforced. A world filled with joy and good health, so much so that people live for hundreds of years.

The days will come when there will be such a world. These will be the days of the King.

The Lord’s prayer reveals the reality of a kingdom to come such as this. Jesus prayed to the Father, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.” That powerful statement is evidence that God’s heavenly kingdom will come to earth.
