"The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a Rod of Iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star." – Revelation 2:26-28 (ESV)
Systematic Theology: Lesson 24, Part 18: The Doctrine of the Trinity (50:22)
Before my vacation we finished up 17 precursor sermons to studying the Doctrines of the Trinity. Our final lessons went over the relationship between God and the Nations, as well as how God subjects the nations to Christ.
In today’s sermon, I start right back in with The Subjection of the Church to Christ. He does this through his Spirit and his Word. Our subjection is not forced but free and it is organic not instantaneous.
