Kings Of All Kings – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 19th



(Jesus Christ Is Lord Of Lords And King Of Kings)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 6:14-15 AMPC
“…I [solemnly] charge you to keep all His precepts unsullied and flawless, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), which [appearing] will be shown forth in His own proper time by the blessed, only Sovereign (Ruler), the King of kings and the Lord of lords.”

The Lord Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords. When He was born, the Bible says, “…Wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him”” (Matthew 2:1-2). He didn’t become a king; He was born a king.

In John 18, we find His own testimony when Pilate asked Him, “Are you a king?” Jesus responded, “…You say rightly that I am a king…” (John 18:37). His response meant, “You’re right.” He spoke in the affirmative!

In fact, in the thirty-ninth verse, speaking to the Jews, Pilate confirmed Jesus’ affirmation when he said, “…Do you therefore want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” Had Jesus denied being a King, Pilate wouldn’t call Him the King of the Jews.

In Acts 2:30, speaking to an audience, Peter said, “Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him (David) that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne.”

In John 12:13, upon His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, the crowds extravagantly honoured Him and praised God for sending this King into Jerusalem. They cried out, “…Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!”

Of course, the elders of the Jews were offended and told Him to silence those who praised Him and received Him as King (Luke 19:39).

But Jesus responded, “…If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out” (Luke 19:40 NIV). Hallelujah!

The Lord Jesus is the exalted God, the immortal God, living in unapproachable light of divine glory. There’s none like Him.

He’s King and Monarch of the universe. He has all authority in heaven, in earth, and under the earth. Be unapologetic in your identity with Him, and speak boldly of Him. Glory to His Name forever!
