Calvin: Christ’s Present Reign Is Hidden Under The Cross

The appearance of Christ and his kingdom mean the same thing; for although he now reigns in heaven and earth, yet hitherto his reign is not clearly manifested, but, on the contrary, is obscurely hidden under the cross, and is violently assailed by enemies. His kingdom will therefore be established at that time when, having vanquished his enemies, and either removed or reduced to nothing every opposing power, he shall display his majesty.
John Calvin | Commentaries On The Epistles to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1948), 252.
