David Jeremiah Devotional 16th May 2022 MESSAGE
In 1516, the English churchman, philosopher, and advisor to King Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More, coined the term utopia when he published a book by that name: Utopia. It described an imaginary island country named Utopia (“no place” in Greek) where life was lived in perfect order and balance.
Will there ever be a world where life is ordered and balanced? According to the Bible there will be. First, for a thousand years Christ will rule a kingdom on earth which is not totally problem-free, but which is ordered by His perfect rule. Then, for all eternity, the new heaven and new earth will usher in the New Jerusalem where life will be perfect—devoid of death, mourning, and pain.
Today, we see dystopia. But in the future we see the Kingdom of God—first on earth, then on the new earth. Perfection is coming for all who wait for it in Christ.
We reject as a proud, self-confident dream the notion that man can ever build a utopia on earth.
