A Glimpse of the King

Christ the King, Lisbon
Christ the King, Lisbon

The King is coming,
all is in place.
God takes his seat,
the holy,
fiery God;

We wait
to see
what he will do?
What will happen?
What will become of the world?
Now we will see.

And then we do see,
the Son of Man,
in humanity,
crowned as God,

The king is coming
Am I ready?

The King is Coming

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14 (CEV)


Daniel wrote:

Thrones were set up
    while I was watching,
and the Eternal God
    took his place.
His clothing and his hair
    were white as snow.
His throne was a blazing fire
    with fiery wheels,
10 and flames were dashing out
    from all around him.
Countless thousands
were standing there
    to serve him.
The time of judgment began,
    and the books were opened.

13 As I continued to watch the vision that night,

I saw what looked like
    a son of man
coming with the clouds of heaven,
and he was presented
    to the Eternal God.
14 He was crowned king
    and given power and glory,
so that all people
of every nation and race
    would serve him.
He will rule forever,
and his kingdom is eternal,
    never to be destroyed.
