KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS —Revelation 19:16
The President of the United States has been considered a powerful leader. Other nations have powerful leaders as well, but to a large degree nations of the world have looked to the United States to give leadership. Not that the U.S. is a perfect nation, but it has done some good. It has done evil as well.
Jesus it the “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” and He is totally and completely good all the time. He is perfect and does all things perfectly. It is so unfortunately that so many people in this world see Him as a permissive grandfatherly figure who lets children get anything they want and do anything they want without any consequences. That is not he Jesus of the Bible. This first time He came, He came as the Lamb God, born among animals— meek, mild and gentle. He came to offer Himself as the sacrificial Passover Lamb for our sins on the cross. He took the penalty and punishment for every man. He tasted death for every man (Hebrews 2:9).
The next time Jesus comes He is coming as the absolutely most powerful, sovereign and just Ruler. He is coming to set things right and those who do not want anything to do with Him will get their wish… forever, but it will not be what they thought. Those who have believed and taught that when you die you die will find out they were terribly and eternally wrong. People who believed they could live like they wanted to live without any consequences will find out that there are eternal consequences. Individuals following false religious systems will find out they were deceived into eternal condemnation. All these people who have not trusted the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS will feel His eternal wrath.
But, we who know the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS will experience His goodness forever. He came the first time that we could be freed— “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 15:56-57). The next time He comes He will set all things right. No ruler, the President of the United States or any other ruler, will be able to stand against Jesus.
Rejoice you who know King Jesus. He loves us and has our best interest in mind. All things will come to light in His time. If you have not come to know Jesus, call on His Name to be able to rejoice in what He does in our life now and will do in the future!
Dear Father, I am so grateful to know that Jesus in the Sovereign over all rulers and people. It is exciting to know that He will right all wrongs one day and that I will be in that perfect place with Him and all who love Him. May I live faithfully for Him now. Even so come Lord Jesus!
