“And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” (Luke 1:33 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible.)
The family of Jacob, or the descendants of Jacob are the same as the children of Israel. This was the name by which the ancient people of God were known, It is the same as saying that he would reign over His own church and people forever. He’s in charge. He guides them and defends them. He has given laws for them to follow.
This scripture addresses Mary when she was told she was with child. Mary had seen turmoil in her world; Kingdoms rising and falling all around. The child she would give birth to would form an everlasting kingdom.
I’m so glad I have an interest in His Kingdom. He shall reign among his people on earth until the end of time, and be their King forever. His Kingdom is the only Kingdom that will never end. How exciting to think about! You can be a part of this kingdom also.
Prayer: Thank You Lord, that You have made me a part of Your unending Kingdom. One day we will be with You forever. It’s hard for my mind to imagine being with You forever!
