Who do you say I am? #11. “KING OF KINGS.”

Who do you say I am? #11. “KING OF KINGS.”

Yes, you and your spouse can aspire to British aristocracy. For a mere £2,500 (US$2775.88) you can become “The 10th Lord and Lady of Strettington.” Unfortunately, there appears to be no castle or estate attached, but you are promised that your “Title” will be officially witnessed by a third (independent) lawyer. I would say that the absence of any hereditary requirement puts you in a class beyond access to the Royal Throne (Just saying…).

King David’s Kingdom was Jesus’ by birth, and he had the claim over the Title, “King of Israel.” But later, when on trial, he told Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

This was a spiritual kingdom that had no castles or estates. Jesus had told the Pharisees that his kingdom wasn’t coming in a way that they expected. People would not say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst” (Luke 17:20). The King had arrived!

Peter reminds us of our “Title”: “Royal Priesthood.” Our priestly service is to “declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9). Unlike Israel’s priests who served God within God’s Temple in Jerusalem, we serve together as The Holy Spirit’s Temple, the church (1 Corinthians 3:17), and individually with our body as a Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Being told to teach and baptise in the name of Jesus is void of all power without this all-important message from Jesus: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18).

“He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful” (Revelation 17:14).
