Universal Monarchy

Jesus Christ is King in the world today.  The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice!
Jesus Christ wears the crown of universal monarchy!  Nothing happens but that which Jesus permits, ordains, and overrules!

Let empires go to wreck, it is Christ who breaks them with a rod of iron and shivers them like potters' vessels. Let conflagrations burn down cities, let diseases devastate nations, let war follow war, let pestilence follow to famine, yet still Jesus rules all things well, and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are called according to His purpose!

[Charles H. Spurgeon]

2 Chronicles 20:6 ... And said, O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

Psalm 103:19 ... The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

Revelation 17:14 .. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.❤
