Your kingdom come

The coming kingdom described in Revelation 21 is indescribably good - no more death, mourning, crying or pain. A kingdom of full allegiance to God where evil is completely absent. Its physical manifestation will be as real as Jesus' resurrected body.

In contrast, the kingdom we live in today constantly wars against God's reign. The devil feeds our worldly appetites for money, power, fame and self-preservation, causing tremendous human suffering.

While we endure much darkness now, God can empower resistance to such corrosive influences. Jesus said "the Kingdom of God is found within us" (Luke 17:20-21), affirming that even today--here and now--we can experience God's presence in such a way that we can reflect limitless light and life within the decay and death that surrounds us.
