πŸ‘‘ He Shall Reign

For 2500 yearsΒ β€œdeath reigned from Adam to Moses” (Rom. 5:14).

During this period of history it was demonstrated that β€œdeath passed upon all men,” not because the Law of Moses had condemned them to death, but simply because they were the offspring of fallen Adam, and depraved by nature. Entirely apart from the Law,Β β€œsin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” (Jas. 1:15). ThusΒ β€œdeath reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had NOT sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression.”

For 1500 years, under the law,Β β€œsin… reigned unto death” (Rom. 5:20,21).

Sin had surely risen to its height during Paul’s early years. Christ had been crucified and even after His resurrection His enemies had stood by that awful deed. Israel had joined the Gentiles in declaring war on God and His anointed Son (Psa. 2:1-3) and Saul of Tarsus was the leader of the revolt. It was no longer merely a matter of sin; it was nowΒ rebellion.

For 2000 years, β€œgrace [has] reigned, through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:21).

Thus we are now living underΒ the reign of grace. As β€œDEATH REIGNED from Adam to Moses” (Rom. 5:14); as SIN REIGNED β€œunto death” after β€œthe Law entered”, so now grace abounds, THAT GRACE MIGHT REIGN β€œthrough righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20,21).

For 1000 yearsΒ the Lord Jesus Christ will reign upon this earth (Rev. 20:1-6), as King over Israel and the nations.

The kingdom will then be delivered over to the Father (I Cor. 15:24-28).

For all eternity the Father, Son and Holy SpiritΒ will reignΒ in the person of Christ (Rom. 11:36; Eph. 1:10).

Note:Β From Adam to the present day God has always been β€œon the throne”, but rather than ruling directly, hasΒ overruled in the affairs of men. source
