King Of All The Earth

"For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding" (Psalm 47:7).

This stirring psalm of praise which celebrates the reign of Christ over all the earth, finds its primary fulfillment in Christ's second coming and full reign over His Kingdom. The reader is exhorted to "sing praises unto our King" (v. 6). The reign of Christ certainly gives cause for celebration. His arrival forces the psalmist to proclaim, "O clap your hands, all ye people" (v. 1).

What has happened to make this Kingship such cause for celebration? After all, "by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible or invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him" (Colossians 1:16). He belongs on the throne. We should expect to find Him there. However, even though there is a sense in which He reigns today, the sad fact remains that another has usurped rule.

This usurper can be none other than Satan, who not only claims rule of the creation for himself, but who spoiled the original perfection of the creation which now "groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:22). He has encouraged men to accept the mindless concept of evolution, and even denies Christ recognition as Redeemer as the humanist's creed, "We will save ourselves!" boasts.

But all is not lost! Our text assures us that Christ will reclaim His Kingdom: "He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. . . . God reigneth over the heathen" (vv. 3, 8). Christ the Creator, the Redeemer, the Heir, has conquered the enemy and soon will assume His rightful throne--"the throne of His holiness" (v. 8), "greatly exalted" (v. 9). Then we shall join the redeemed of the ages, and "shout unto God with the voice of triumph" (v. 1). JDM
