VerseD: Luke 23:38

There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.”
Luke 23:38, ESV

Our Lord was mocked, yet the mockers did not realize the truth they either stated or misunderstood.
Likewise, Christians receive the same treatment, but we know they are truly attacking and mocking Christ and still missing the truth of His redemptive work on that cross.

VerseD: John 12:14-15

And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written, “Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!”
John 12:14‭-‬15, ESV

DHe entered Jerusalem on a donkey, the King arriving to make His sacrifice.
When He returns, it will be on a white horse to remove His enemies.
We celebrate His coming and warn of His return!

VerseD: Psalm 24:10

Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah
Psalm 24:10, ESV

We can rest in the knowledge and hope that God is our sovereign King who controls the universe and has pardoned our sins through Christ.

VerseD: Isaiah 9:7

Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
Isaiah 9:7, ESV

God has come to us and saved us, and when He returns His Kingdom shall be the only kingdom full of His saved saints.

VerseD: Proverbs 29:4

By justice a king builds up the land, but he who exacts gifts tears it down.
Proverbs 29:4, ESV

Playing favorites, disobeying rules and laws, not setting appropriate limits: all of these can destroy a nation … or a family or business or friendship or church.

Remember: as Christians, we will one day reign with King Jesus. We are all royalty through Him.

VerseD: 1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you
1 Peter 5:6, ESV

Our Great Shepherd will give us a crown of glory (eternal life in glorified bodies) for humbly serving Him.

Do not demand authority or expect earthly rewards in this life. Merely lead others to the Shepherd King, Jesus, as a willing servant.

VerseD: Luke 19:38

saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Luke 19:38, ESV

How do we respond to the coming King? Are we as fickle as the crowd in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, shifting allegiance based on how we think Jesus should be? Or do we seek the truth of who He is?

Give Us a King…er, President

November 2, 2012

 

Just one more weekend to go…white-house-south-2007-dj

…Many of us have rested many hopes on the shoulders of one man or the other.

We assure ourselves that if only the right man is elected, then our troubles will be erased:

We will have more money.

We will enjoy more opportunities.

We will be safer and more secure.

We will be happier.

Catch the rest at The Church of No People …
