A monarchy is a form of government in which a single person has sovereign authority and undivided rule over a nation or state. The head of a monarchy is a monarch and a male monarch is conferred the title of a king. The last song in the album, “We cry out: Worship project” by Jeremy Camp is a powerful song entitled “King Jesus”. So is Jesus The King?
It is interesting to note that in the birth of Jesus, he was referred to as a king when the wise men from the east asked, “Where is he [Jesus], who is born, KING of the Jews?” (Matthew 2:2). Also in his death, the inscription in Latin above his head, on the Cross, read INRI which stands for IESVS NAZARENVS REX IVDAEORVM, which means Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews (John 19:19). In his life and in his death, Jesus is King, but because he willingly offered to lay down his life for the Salvation of mankind, God the Father, conferred on him a name above all names; a title of the KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS which is written on his thigh (Revelation 19:16), and to this KING of kings, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess, that He [Jesus] is LORD. Jesus is The King (of kings).
Points to ponder:
A king has sovereign authority and undivided rule over his kingdom and if you and I are part of God’s kingdom, have we allowed Jesus to have Sovereign authority and undivided rule over our lives? In the presence of a King, the best posture for us to be in, is on our knees, confessing that He is Lord. Are/Am you/I before Jesus, The King.
Revelation 19:16 (KJV)
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Revelation 17:14 (KJV)
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
