Welcome.
Now, we'll consider, Revelation 11:15, “The Triumph of God's Kingdom and Christ's Reign”.

Open Bible To Revelation 11:15

Let's begin, by reading Revelation 11:15.

And the seventh angel sounded; and there followed great voices in heaven, and they said, The kingdom of the world is become the kingdom of our Lord, and of his Christ: and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Now, let's learn more about, “The Triumph of God's Kingdom and Christ's Reign”.

Revelation 11:15 is a verse of victory, anticipation, and hope in the midst of apocalyptic imagery and prophetic messages. It forms part of the larger tapestry of the book of Revelation, a book that gives believers a glimpse into the end times and the ultimate triumph of God's kingdom. In this article, we will unpack the rich meaning and implications of this verse.

The Sounding of the Seventh Trumpet

The verse begins with, “The seventh angel sounded his trumpet…” This event is part of a sequence of seven trumpet blasts by seven angels in Revelation. Each trumpet announces a divine judgment or significant event in God's unfolding eschatological plan. The sounding of the seventh trumpet signifies the climax of these events.

The Proclamation of Victory

The verse continues with, “…and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign forever and ever.'” This proclamation is a triumphant announcement of the ultimate victory of God's kingdom.

The phrase “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah” emphasizes the complete and total victory of God over all earthly powers. It signifies the transition from the temporary rule of the world to the eternal rule of God.

The Eternal Reign of Christ

The proclamation ends with, “and he will reign forever and ever.” This is a declaration of the eternal reign of Christ. Unlike human rulers and kingdoms that come and go, Christ's reign is everlasting. It is a reign characterized by justice, righteousness, and peace.

Conclusion: The Hope of Believers

Revelation 11:15, despite its placement amidst complex prophetic visions, is a beacon of hope for believers. It reassures us of the ultimate victory of God's kingdom and the eternal reign of Christ. It reminds us that no matter how chaotic or challenging the world may seem, God is in control, and His victory is assured.

As we reflect on this verse, let's find comfort and hope in the assurance of God's triumph. Let's live as citizens of His kingdom, seeking to embody its values in our lives. And let's encourage one another with the promise that one day, the kingdom of the world will become the kingdom of our Lord and His Messiah, who will reign forever and ever.
