Sermon by Pastor Marc E Simeon

Que ton règne vienne et que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel

Let thy kingdom come, let thy will be done as in heaven so upon the earth

LECTURE MATTHIEU 6 :7-10

Mt 6:7 En priant, ne multipliez pas de vaines paroles, comme les païens, qui s’imaginent qu’à force de paroles ils seront exaucés.

 8 Ne leur ressemblez pas; car votre Père sait de quoi vous avez besoin, avant que vous le lui demandiez.

 9 ¶ Voici donc comment vous devez prier: Notre Père qui es aux cieux! Que ton nom soit sanctifié;

 10 que ton règne vienne; que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.

Mt 6:7 “And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

 8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

 9 ¶ “In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.

INTRODUCTION

  • From Mathew chapter 5 to 7 we encounter the greatest sermon ever preached.
  • Jesus took time to elaborate the principles of His kingdom.
  • Just as Moses laid the foundation of God’s alliance to the Children of Israel with the law, Jesus likewise took His followers to a training camp and engraves the rules of the New Alliance in them.
  • Jesus knew that carnal men would not be able to abide by His instructions, but the Holy Spirit in the heart of the regenerate souls will enable them to live by the standard of His kingdom.
  • In Matthew 6: 9-18 Jesus gave instructions on how to pray.
  • Our prayer must not be vain repetitions.
  • Our prayer must be well constructed.
  • The first aim of our prayer ought to be to honor God and sanctify His name.
  • The second aim of our prayer is for us to line up with the precepts of God.
  • The third aim of prayer is to make our petitions known to God.
  • The fourth aim of prayer is to ask for forgiveness provided that we also forgive others.
  • Jesus taught us that our prayers must end with praise and adoration to God.
  • As we go through the Lord’s Prayer, we find this verse that demands specific attentions.

Matthieu 6 verse 10 dit : « que ton règne vienne; que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel. »

Mt 6:10 let thy kingdom come, let thy will be done as in heaven so upon the earth;

  • This verse is very significant in sorting out what’s going on in our world these days.
  • With the grace of God we will ponder on the applications of this verse in our message for today.

THE PERPLEXITY OF THE TWO KINGDOMS

  • When Pilate asked Jesus if He was truly a king, Jesus replied: “My kingdom is not of this world.”
  • Jesus’ answer to Pilate avowed that He was truly a king but in another world.
  • Then the question remains, “who is the king of this world where we live?”
  • This world where we live is not ruled by a king, but by a prince.
  • The prince of this world will be dealt with accordingly by the creator of this world.

Re 12:12 ¶ C’est pourquoi réjouissez-vous, cieux, et vous qui habitez dans les cieux. Malheur à la terre et à la mer! car le diable est descendu vers vous, animé d’une grande colère, sachant qu’il a peu de temps.

Joh 12:31 Maintenant a lieu le jugement de ce monde; maintenant le prince de ce monde sera jeté dehors.

 Joh 16:11 le jugement, parce que le prince de ce monde est jugé.

  • As children of God, we are sometimes perplexed to see how our world is running as if there is no God.
  • It seems that mankind has reached the pinnacle in his arrogance against the true and living God.
  • Different people have risen up throughout the ages and give whatsoever rational for the existence of the world while omitting God in the equation. 
  • How does God allow such to happen?
  • Why is God so soft in protecting and defending His name?
  • Why is evil so rampant?
  • We know that the whole world was created by God; then, how did we get in that mess where God seems like a stranger to this world?
  • We can all understand that this world or realm of ours was hijacked at some point.
  • The hijackers or the kidnapers have taken this world in hostage.
  • Before we go further, let us consider a recent dilemma that unfolded in our homeland Haiti.
  • 17 Missionaries from Canada and the United States were kidnapped in Haiti by gangs.
  • One may ask, why did God let something like that happen in the first place?
  • The next question is: why did two super powers like the US and Canada not getting directly involved with their powerful armies to rescue their citizens?
  • Why these rich countries couldn’t just reached to their pockets and pay the one million dollar a head ransom to these bandits and rescue these missionaries at once?
  • Is it because these lives did not matter to them? No
  • Is it because the ransom was too high? No
  • The delicateness of the situation required tact and not force.
  • If they gave the one million dollars a head ransom to these bandits, every white person or foreigners would be in danger in Haiti and the gangs would be much more empowered and emboldened.
  • If they used force, they could end up killing the very people they were trying to rescue.
  • In a corrupt country like Haiti where no one knows who to trust. It is hard to know who was behind that mess.
  • The superpowers just had to stand by while buying time in hope for a breakthrough.
  • I don’t forcibly believe the explanation of the final escape although it is possible.
  • God could just miraculously deliver them as He often did in the past, or the rest of the story could cost more lives, so an alternate version was given to what really transpired.
  • I am so glad that they are out because I too was praying for their release.
  • I personally refused to take foreign missionaries to Haiti at one time because I could not assure their safety.
  • The point is that: the long hold of the missionaries as nothing to do with the loyalty that the United States and Canada have toward their citizens.
  • Their non direct involvements saved the lives of these missionaries.
  • At the same time, the strategy they used could easily be misinterpreted as neglect or weakness.
  • With that in mind, let’s get back to our verse in question found in the Lord’s Prayer.
  • God had a big dilemma in His hand when Satan and his angels hijacked the kingdom of mankind.
  • Every since the fall of humanity, God been operated with a lot of caution because the hostage situation of mankind is so fragile.
  •  

THE RESCUE MISSION OF GOD TOWARD MANKIND

Mt 6:10 let thy kingdom come, let thy will be done as in heaven so upon the earth; (DBY)

 10 que ton règne vienne; que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel. (LSV)

  • This is Jesus showing His disciples how to pray.
  • The earth as we know it is not being governed by the principles of God, but it ought to be the yearning of every believer for the reign of God to also include the earthly realm.
  • Jesus entered this world from the back way because He first came as a rescuer.
  • The minute Satan found out that He was in the field; he sent out to destroy Him.
  • I want you to know that this world we live in is a kidnapped world, that’s why it’s not been run well.
  • Nothing is the way it was supposed to be.
  • The damages incurred by the kidnappers are so enormous that the owner of this world has declared it total lost.
  • The only mission of God on earth now is to get His own out of this mess.
  • God has a standing covenant only with the nation of Israel.
  • Israel is the only interest of the Creator God in this world.
  • 2000 years ago, He came to His own and His own received Him not.

Joh 1:11 Elle est venue chez les siens, et les siens ne l’ont point reçue.

 12 Mais à tous ceux qui l’ont reçue, à ceux qui croient en son nom, elle a donné le pouvoir de devenir enfants de Dieu,

 13 (1:12) lesquels sont nés, (1:13) non du sang, ni de la volonté de la chair, ni de la volonté de l’homme, mais de Dieu.

De 32:21 Ils ont excité ma jalousie par ce qui n’est point Dieu, Ils m’ont irrité par leurs vaines idoles; Et moi, j’exciterai leur jalousie par ce qui n’est point un peuple, Je les irriterai par une nation insensée.

  • To excite the jealousy of the Jews, God opened up the salvation that was crafted explicitly for the Jews to all who believed in Him regardless of race.
  • It is still about the Jewish people, but the investment of salvation to the gentiles has pleased God considerably because He is the Creator of the whole world.

THE MILLENNIUM KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH

  • Because of the prayers of the saints, the kingdom of God will come to earth in full strength for one thousand years.
  • God is preparing to take over the world from Satan.
  • This is a multi-facets operation that began with Christ dying on the cross to assure forgiveness and reconciliation between God and mankind.
  • Then God set out to save as many gentiles as possible in the last 2000 years.
  • The next operation in God’s agenda is the rapture of the church to close the era of the gentiles.
  • After the rapture of the Saints, the following operation of God pertaining to this world is the redemption of Israel.
  • The redemption of Israel will last for 1000 years where Christ will seat on the throne of David to rule all the nations of the earth.
  • For that to happen, Satan will be bound and thrown in prison for one thousand years, because this world cannot have two commanders in chief ruling it at the same time.

Re 20:1 ¶ Puis je vis descendre du ciel un ange, qui avait la clef de l’abîme et une grande chaîne dans sa main.

 2 Il saisit le dragon, le serpent ancien, qui est le diable et Satan, et il le lia pour mille ans.

 3 Il le jeta dans l’abîme, ferma et scella l’entrée au-dessus de lui, afin qu’il ne séduisît plus les nations, jusqu’à ce que les mille ans fussent accomplis. Après cela, il faut qu’il soit délié pour un peu de temps.

  • While Satan is the prince of this world, God remains the owner of this world.
  • God has already declared this world total loss bound for destruction.
  • God alone possesses the title of this world.
  • Picture this world as a car that had been wrecked by bandits on its way to the junkyard.
  • God only plans to remove the engine and the transmission out before sending this world to the crusher.
  • Israel is the engine and the church is the transmission; the rest is junk.

Re 6:12 Je regardai, quand il ouvrit le sixième sceau; et il y eut un grand tremblement de terre, le soleil devint noir comme un sac de crin, la lune entière devint comme du sang,

 13 et les étoiles du ciel tombèrent sur la terre, comme lorsqu’un figuier secoué par un vent violent jette ses figues vertes.

 14 Le ciel se retira comme un livre qu’on roule; et toutes les montagnes et les îles furent remuées de leurs places.

 15 Les rois de la terre, les grands, les chefs militaires, les riches, les puissants, tous les esclaves et les hommes libres, se cachèrent dans les cavernes et dans les rochers des montagnes.

 16 Et ils disaient aux montagnes et aux rochers: Tombez sur nous, et cachez-nous devant la face de celui qui est assis sur le trône, et devant la colère de l’agneau;

 17 car le grand jour de sa colère est venu, et qui peut subsister?

Re 21:1 ¶ Puis je vis un nouveau ciel et une nouvelle terre; car le premier ciel et la première terre avaient disparu, et la mer n’était plus.

 2 Et je vis descendre du ciel, d’auprès de Dieu, la ville sainte, la nouvelle Jérusalem, préparée comme une épouse qui s’est parée pour son époux.

 3 Et j’entendis du trône une forte voix qui disait: Voici le tabernacle de Dieu avec les hommes! Il habitera avec eux, et ils seront son peuple, et Dieu lui-même sera avec eux.

 4 Il essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux, et la mort ne sera plus, et il n’y aura plus ni deuil, ni cri, ni douleur, car les premières choses ont disparu.

 5 Et celui qui était assis sur le trône dit: Voici, je fais toutes choses nouvelles. Et il dit: Écris; car ces paroles sont certaines et véritables.

CONCLUSION

que ton règne vienne et que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel

let thy kingdom come, let thy will be done as in heaven so upon the earth

  • You and I must wait a little longer but we need to take courage knowing that our God is faithful and prompt.
  • His kingdom will come in due time and His ruling will be universally obeyed on earth as it is in heaven.

AMEN!
