In this session, we explore with David how Christ’s reign is inexhaustible, there is always “so much more” the Father desires to give us in Jesus.
Sometimes our Redeemer King comes upon us when his glory breaks through by outpourings of the Holy Spirit in the renewal of his people – what some call “Christ Awakenings.” During these times, Jesus intensifies and accelerates our experiences of his supremacy.
Our Lord is also passionate for the consummation of all things. One day he will come “upon us” in a spectacular, bodily return, in order to triumph throughout the universe forever. Both now and later, the “increase of his Kingdom” has no end (Isaiah 9).
We wait continually for more of Christ supreme, not only “then” but “now”, as we pray “Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22).

Video 8:3 – How does Christ signal the Final Consummation right now?
"They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you. With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ." - 2 Thessalonians 1:9-12
