::Devotional:: ‘The King of kings and Lord of lords’

October 30, 2009

One of the things that used to be very confusing to me was the anger many of the Jews had towards Jesus.  Why in the world would they pick a murder like Barabas to set free from jail while they practically begged for Jesus to be crucified?  I remember when something clicked inside one day and I realized that one of the reasons the Jews were so angry with Jesus is because as King of the Jews they expected him to come in and save the day.  They were wanting him to be the conquering king who took out all opposing nations.  They wanted a military ruler and were stirred to anger when Jesus didn’t fulfill that expectation.  He was a conquering king, he conquered death through his resurrection, and as far as a military king – oh he’s coming, just wait and see.

The scriptures teach that one day we will hear a trumpet as the Lord returns and comes to collect his people and wage war on the Antichrist and the wicked.  The battle of Armageddon.  The king who came once as a babe in a a manager will not return the same way.  The king who allowed himself to be beaten, scourged, crowned with thorns and crucified on a cross will not be as restrained this time.  No sir, when Jesus returns the next time he’s coming with the army of heaven!

What a scene that is going to be!  The armies of heaven will assemble in formation behind Jesus with almost a blinding display of holiness.

The armies of heaven, dressed in pure white linen, followed him on white horses.  Revelation 19:14

Then, mounted on his horse and leading the charge will be King Jesus.  When John saw this moment, he said he saw heaven open up and a lone white horse was standing there.

And the one sitting on the horse was named Faithful and True. For he judges fairly and then goes to war. His eyes were bright like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him, and only he knew what it meant. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. Revelation 19:11-13

From his mouth came a sharp sword, and with it he struck down the nations. He ruled them with an iron rod, and he trod the winepress of the fierce wrath of almighty God. On his robe and thigh was written this title: King of kings and Lord of lords.   Revelation 19:15-16

When Jesus returns, there will be no question of his Kingship and no doubt of his Lordship.  Both will be displayed in a glorious victory over satan and his armies.  His kingdom will come and his will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

All Hail King Jesus – The KING of kings and LORD of lords!

-Stay Rooted Col. 2:7-
