“Which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords.” 1 Timothy 6:15
When a person receives Jesus, the Bible says in Galatians 4:6-7 the Holy Spirit comes to live in his or her heart: “Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”
One also becomes a child of God and heir of God who belongs to a certain kingdom – the kingdom of God where Jesus rules as King. Not just a king of another nation, such as a Christian nation, but Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords (1 Timothy 6:15). He is ruler over the entire universe and all nations with supreme sovereignty and power.
As humans, we see with our natural eyes the things of this world; however, as children of God, Jesus wants us to see with our supernatural eyes where we can see the kingdom of God, and also live in it too on a daily basis. Jesus said in John 3:3, “Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” “
One must be born again to see the kingdom of God. To be born again means not only have you believed in Jesus’ death for the forgiveness of your sins, you also must accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, repent (or turn away) from your sins, invite and receive the Holy Spirit in your heart and ask the Holy Spirit to help you to transform your life to live a new life with Jesus. This is a lifelong process and if you ask the Holy Spirit He will help.
When you are born again, Jesus becomes King of your life. As King, He wants you to remember that He reigns on His throne at all times, in this world and in your personal life. He is in control, in good and hard times. As King, He is governing the world, and your world and you do not have to be afraid of anything. As Jesus said in John 18:36, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” Are you a child of the King of kings?
When Jesus began His preaching, His message was, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” When Jesus came on the earth this first time, He came as King for a spiritual battle. The battle He came was the battle to defeat the ultimate enemy of God, who is Satan, the devil and Jesus won this battle through his death and resurrection. Hallelujah! Are you living it out as a child of the King?
The Bible says Jesus is coming back to earth a second time, and He is coming soon: Matthew 24:30-31, “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”
Are YOU ready for Jesus’ return?
