For all those grieving as Britain gears up for the coronation, here is a beautiful coronation anthem, but it is not for the man in Buckingham Palace. It begins: ‘As the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall; There is still one King reigning over all…’ Read on for the rest. It will thrill your soul. We sang it for the first time at the church we attend in England last Sunday, but I could hardly sing at all for the lump in my throat and the tears in my eyes.
‘As the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall
There is still one King reigning over all
So I will not fear for this truth remains
That my God is the Ancient of Days
None above him none before Him
All of time is in His hands
For His throne it shall remain and ever stand
All the power all the glory
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of Days
Though the dread of night overwhelms my soul
He is here with me I am not alone
His love is sure
And He knows my name
For my God is the Ancient of Days
What the future brings I will watch and wait
For the Savior King and my joy complete
Standing face to face in the presence of
The Ancient of Days

The Lord Jesus Christ really is the King of kings and His church is His bride. He is really coming back to the earth He created, first to call His Bride out, and later coming back with all of us to set up His kingdom and reign with a rod of iron on His restored planet.
It is all true and the Bible prophecies give us a sequence of events.
1 All believers in Christ, both living and dead, rise up to meet our beloved Savior in the air. 1 Thes 4:13-18; 1 Cor 15:51; John 14 and other scriptures.
2 The terrible seven years which Jesus calls The Great Tribulation unrolls. Book of Revelation chapters 6-19.
3 King Jesus returns to destroy all His enemies. Satan is bound in the Abyss, the Bottomless Pit (possibly the centre of the earth), for 1,000 years. Book of Revelation 20:1-6
4 Psalm 24 is fulfilled as the King of Glory enters Jerusalem, the true Triumphal Entry! Every knee will bow, every tongue proclaim Him Lord to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
5 His kingdom comes!
6 The topography of the earth is realigned so that Jerusalem is the highest place and the King of kings rules from there. Every mountain and hill are brought low. Isaiah 40:4, Luke 3:5
7 At the Sheep and Goat Judgement all those who rejected the Lord Jesus are sent to Hades. The sheep go into His 1,000 year kingdom. Matthew 25:31-46
8 Lord Jesus restores His earth to its original glory. The cities are gone; the animals are all herbivores again and there is true global peace as swords are beaten into plowshares. Isaiah 2:4 and many other scriptures.
9 At the end of the 1,000 years is the dreadful Great White Throne Judgement, Revelation 20, the judgement of the damned, when all those who have rejected Jesus are thrown into the Lake of Fire. Freemasons say they will be at this judgement in their little white lambskin aprons, showing their good works, and they are probably right. They need to check this out in the Bible and repent now. Their good deeds are like filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6
There is so much more, but enough for now. The King is surely coming and He told us to be watching and ready when He suddenly comes in the clouds for believers. Won’t you tell Him today that you love Him and ask Him to forgive all your sins and make you ready for when He comes?
