Master Of The Nations

“And there was given him dominion [or authority], and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages [i.e., men of all languages] should serve him:  his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom shall not be destroyed” (Daniel 7:14).

This authority, glory, and kingdom belong to Jesus Christ:  He is the one whom all nations, to cite just one word in the second clause, will serve.  Unsurprisingly, we find in Luke 4 that all nations have been turned over to the devil, who will not keep them.  He will lose them.  Readily we believe that once Jesus possesses these nations, He will not lose them:  they will always be His.

Will they ever rebel?  Not as long as the devil is out of the way.  Rebellion stays at arm’s length when, in the future, all nations will gather at The Throne of the Lord to honor Jesus’ name and no longer will people follow their evil hearts (Jeremiah 3:17, NIV).  Do understand that such people are an important element of an everlasting dominion.
