  Study Tools

WHAT IS A KING? IT IS THE SOVEREIGN RULER AND OWNER OF A TERRITORY AND IT'S PEOPLE. "AND HE WILL RULE AS KING" (LUKE 1:33). FIRST OF ALL, JESUS IS ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGN OF THE UNIVERSE. AS KING, HE DOES AS HE PLEASES. HE IS THE ULTIMATE RULER. IS HE YOUR RULER? DOES HE RULE YOUR HEART? DOES HE FEELS AT HOME IN YOUR HEART OR IS SELF RULING IN THE THRONE OF YOUR HEART? SOMETIMES WE ARE UNHAPPY BECAUSE WE MAKE OUR OWN DECISIONS WITHOUT CONSULTING THE INDWELLING KING JESUS. WE DO NOT REALIZE THAT WE NO LONGER ARE OUR OWN! HE OWNS US! HE SACRIFICED HIS LIFE TO MAKE US HIS FOREVER! WE ARE HIS PROPERTY! A KING IS A LORD! A LORD IS A RULER AND OWNER! MANY CALL JESUS "LORD" BUT DO THEY LET HIM RULE THEIR LIVES? JESUS DID NOT CAME TO EARTH TO ESTABLISH A RELIGION, BUT TO EXPRESS HIS SPIRITUAL KINGDOM! THIS IS THE ORGANIC KINGDOM OF CHRIST. IT IS NOT FOOD OR DRINK (IT IS NOT MATERIAL, THOUGH IT AFFECTS THE MATERIAL) BUT JOY, PEACE AND LOVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. WHEN KING JESUS RULES YOUR HEART THE RESULT IS PERFECT PEACE. WHEN HE CONTROLS YOUR LIFE, THE OUTCOME IS HEAVENLY JOY! JOY PLUS PEACE EQUALS HAPPINESS! THE KINGDOM OF KING JESUS IS THE KINGDOM OF HAPPINESS! NO WONDER PAUL SAID: REJOICE ALWAYS EVEN WHEN YOUR BODY IS IN EXTREME PAIN! THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST RESIDES WITHIN US BECAUSE THE KING IS INSIDE OF US! HE RULE US FROM WITHIN! THE MAIN CHARACTERISTIC OF HIS SPIRITUAL KINGDOM IS LOVE. LOVE IS GOD'S DELIGHT IN DOING US GOOD. IT IS ALL ABOUT THIS KINGDOM OF LOVE. THIS IS GOD'S EMPIRE OF LOVE: BECAUSE IT IS ALL ABOUT THE GLORY OF HIS LOVE DEMONSTRATED IN US AND FOR US. GOD'S GOAL IS TO GLORIFY HIS LOVE IN US! GOD MADE US VESSELS OF MERCY TO MANIFEST THE GLORY OF HIS INFINITE LOVE THROUGH US! LOVE IS THE CENTER OF THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND IT'S VERY ESSENCE. NOW, WE ARE CHILDREN OF A KING. WE ARE KINGS. HE HAS MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS FOR THE KINGDOM. AS SUCH, WE MUST FOLLOW KINGDOM PROTOCOL. WE CAN'T BEHAVE LIKE THE WORLD. WE ARE SPIRITUAL ROYALTY. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT BEING ARROGANT (THINKING THAT WE ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS) BUT LIVING UP TO WHO WE REALLY ARE: SONS OF THE MOST HIGH KING OF THE UNIVERSE. THERE MUST BE A KINGLY DIGNITY EXPRESSED THROUGH US THAT DISTINGUISHES US FROM THE WORLD. THEY MUST SEE THAT WE BELONG TO KING JESU, THAT WE ARE DIFFERENT. HOLINESS IS THE MARK OF THIS ORGANIC KINGDOM OF CHRIST. IN FACT, HOLINESS IS PART OF THE NATURE OF THIS INVISIBLE KINGDOM. HOLINESS IS THE PURITY AND TRANSCENDANCE OF GOD. WE REPRESENT THIS KINGDOM OF HOLINESS, WE REPRESENT THE KING OF EARTH! DO PEOPLE SEE THE KINGDOM LIFE IN US? AS CITIZENS OF THE HEAVENLY KINGODM WE HAVE COVENANT RIGHTS. THE KINGDOM COVENANT IS THE DIVINE INSURANCE, OUR SPIRITUAL INHERITANCE AND SPIRITUAL BENEFITS WHICH GOD GUARANTEE TO ALWAYS FULLFILL IN BY THE HOLY REPUTATION OF HIS HOLY NAME. HAVE YOU SEEM JESUS AS THE KING OF KINGS? OR IS HE JUST TO YOU ANOTHER GOOD TEACHER OR A MERE GOOD EXAMPLE? DOES HE RULE YOUR HEART COMPLETELY? ONCE YOU SURRENDER THE THRONE OF YOUR HEART TO KING JESUS, THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT IS HEAVEN ON EARTH WITHIN YOUR SOUL: PERFECT PEACE, HEAVEN'S JOY AND UNLIMITED LOVE. WORHSIP THE KING OF LOVE! MAY HE REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU AS THE ETERNAL KING, AS THE KING OF ETERNAL LIFE AS THE INDWELLING KING WHO RESIDE IN THE PALACE OF YOUR BODY! AMEN!
