14 Mar KING OF KINGS
Revelations 19:11-12, 15-16
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OG KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
The picture painted of Jesus in this passage is different from what the wise men of this world would ever imagine. Today there are all kinds of questions asked about the deity of Jesus. Men are trying to discount who Jesus is. No matter what humanity has done, it is difficult for any group of people to totally discredit Jesus.
What they have not figured out is that they are not dealing with the son of a carpenter. They are dealing with the Creator of the world and all there is in it. He is the Lord of glory, the One who holds all things by the word of His power. It is about the eternal One without beginning and end of days. His name is called KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS, and of His kingdom there is no end.
The kings of the earth come and go. They rise and fall and history even forgets them. The reason why after two thousand years Jesus is so real in the minds and hearts of men and His presence fills every available space on earth is simple. He rules all things and controls all places. You should consider yourself privileged to be His child.
1. Spend time worshipping the King of kings and Lord of lords this morning, acknowledging His sovereignty over all life.
2. Ask for humility to continually honor God and worship Him as He resides far above all principality and created power.
3. Father, please help me submit wholeheartedly to Your Lordship and Your sovereignty.
I declare that my God is above all. The world has not seen anyone of His kind and stature. My God is the King of kings and Lord of lords. I am privileged to be His child. I honor and I worship Him for the rest of my life for who He is and for what He means to me in the name of Jesus.
