LUKE 11:2

 

THE DISCIPLES HAD ASKED JESUS/YESHUA TO TEACH THEM HOW TO PRAY.

THIS VERSE IS TAKEN FROM WHAT IS COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE “LORD’S PRAYER.”

NOTICE HOW THE PRAYER BEGINS: FIRST, THE FATHER IS ACKNOWLEDGED, BOTH IN TERMS OF HIS ROLE/TITLE OF “FATHER,” AND SECONDLY, FOR HIS HOLINESS, HIS NAME BEING “HALLOWED,” MEANING HONOURED, REVERED, CONSECRATED. THIS IS NOT AN ASCRIPTION GIVEN CASUALLY, OR LOOSELY. IT IS NOT GIVEN TO ANY HUMAN INDIVIDUAL.

THESE STATEMENTS APPEAR SIMPLISTIC; BUT THEY EMBODY VERY SIGNIFICANT CONCEPTS, AND REALITIES.

THE FATHER IS SOMEONE TO REVERENCE AND NOT TREAT LIGHTLY. HE IS NOT SIMPLY OUR “BUDDY,” OR FRIEND. THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A “CASUAL” NOTATION. HIS POSITION, STATURE, ROLE, AND LOCATION ARE ACKNOWLEDGED, AND UNDERSCORED IN THESE FIRST TWO SHORT LITTLE LINES.

“YOUR KINGDOM COME,” INDICATES THAT OUR DESIRE IS FOR HIS KINGDOM TO COME; HOWEVER, MANY PRAY THIS, WITHOUT REALIZING THAT THAT IS WHAT IS INTENDED. TO MANY THESE ARE SIMPLY RELIGIOUS WORDS WITH LITTLE MEANING. 

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR WHEN HIS SON, JESUS/YESHUA IS COMING BACK TO EARTH TO SET UP HIS MILLENNIAL KINGDOM. HE WILL BRING THE NEW JERUSALEM  WHICH HAS BEEN PREPARED IN HEAVEN, DOWN TO THE EARTH (Rev.21:2). WHAT PEOPLE SAYING THE WORDS MAY NOT REALIZE, IS THAT BY PRAYING THE WORDS, “YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,” THEY ARE COMING INTO AGREEMENT WITH HIS PLAN, CHEERING IT ON, ESSENTIALLY, WELCOMING THE RETURN OF MESSIAH TO RULE AND REIGN ON THE EARTH.

MESSIAH’S RETURN WILL BRING JUDGMENT AND JUSTICE, ENDING ALL EVIL ON THIS EARTH, FOR HIS ULTIMATE WILL, REFERRED TO THROUGHOUT THE PROPHETS, IS FOR HIS KINGDOM TO COME, WHEN HE WILL BRING IN HIS REMNANT, AND RULE WITH AN IRON ROD/HAND (Rev.2:27; Ps.2:8,9; Ex.20:33). JUSTICE WILL PRESIDE OVER ALL, AND ALL EVIL WILL BE SQUELCHED.

THIS IS HIS WILL; IT WILL BE BROUGHT INTO EFFECT ON EARTH, AS IT IS INTENDED, FROM/BY HIS HEAVENLY HEADQUARTERS.

LET US GET IN LINE WITH HIS WILL. LET US PRAY THIS WITH ENTHUSIASM, REALIZING THE GLORY THAT WILL COME WITH HIS REIGN.
