Recognizing the Sovereign Lord

God created and owns the earth. We need to acknowledge this fact in the universe.

After all man’s attempts to ignore God, and replace God with other things, God takes full control and restores the earth back to the owner, who is God.  This is the story of the book of Revelation. Sometimes when man forgets God or ignores God, bad things happen. There are many examples of this in the Old Testament. But eventually God gets all the glory.

Eventually there will be the New Jerusalem, with God fully in control. Again this is talked about much in the last book of the Bible, the conclusion of the whole Bible, the book of Revelation.   Revelation 11:15 … The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.

Maybe one of the best Bible verses on God’s sovereignty is Isaiah 6:1-3 In the year of the death of king Uzziah, I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. 2 Seraphim were standing above him….  3 And one called to the other and said, Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.
