Quite a world we live in, huh? Jesus gets enthroned in 1914 and the world's gone hell in a handbasket ever since. Why in the HECK would an enthroned King allow Satan to run amok among us?
Then I had the chilling thought, we have a modern-day analogy. The States has declared victory in the war againt Iraq. They describe their current operations as "mop-up" only. It is disturbing, though, to see how chaos and death continues, even with the great might of the US trying to maintain order.
But, comparing Jesus' supposed reign since 1914 to the US portrays Jesus as a rather ineffectual King, don't you think? I'd always imagined Jesus return on his white charger, eyes blazing, sword flashing, trumpets trumpeting, to put an end to misery and pain. After all, he wasted no time putting things right the first time he visited.
