I am about to destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations.

Haggai 2:22 

Lord of hosts, Almighty Lord 

Of men and angels come, 

Sweep the earth with fire and sword, 

To make thy kingdom room, 

Every other throne o’erthrow, 

That thine only may remain, 

Reign thy thousand years below, 

And then forever reign.
