Summary: When God is called the King of kings what does it mean? It means amongst other things that all His children are kings. You are a king!
YOU ARE A KING
Yes! For as long as you are a child of God, born-again by the washing of your sins through the precious blood of the Lamb, you are a king. Something more happened that day you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour than you know. That day Jesus empowered you to be a king.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to the that believe on his name.” John 1:12
Let me explain this with these logical statements:
The child of a dog is dog
The child of a lion is lion
The child of a cow is cow
Therefore the child of God is a god.
The child of a dog can never be a lion no matter the science that is employed. The best you can have when you cross a lion and dog is lion-dog. The true offspring of any creature will always be that creatures, having the attributes of the same.
The believer is a Son of God and possesses the attribute of God. If we know God to be the King, then the believer too is a king. No wonder then He is called the Kings.
“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh, a name written, ‘King of kings, and Lord of lords’.”
Why is God called the King of kings? He is so called because He is a King having many kings (His children who are the believers) ruling and reigning with him. The second reason is because the kings of the earth are all under His authority.
My friend, you are king. You are royal. You are not to be ruled but to rule. You are not to be subjected but to subject. You are not to be exploited but to do exploit. Common! You are more than you think you are. You are a king!
Let this truth be formed in you. As a king you must possess some attributes that will enable your rule:
A. YOUR APPOINTMENT IS DIVINE
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
The king is not chosen through mere casting of votes. It is a sacred affair and due consultations are made with the supernatural realm so as to know who the crown fits.
As a matter
of fact, in the cultural
point of view, the
Ancestors must be duly consulted to appoint the right man as king.
The believer’s enthronement also passed through this stage. Due consultations were made to effect your kingship, however, not with the ancestors but the Godhead-God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
“And God said, come now, let US make man in OUR image, after OUR own likeness…” Genesis 1:26
Since the king does not get enthroned through election or balloting, he is not easily removed. In fact, under normal circumstances, if one king does not die, another one cannot be.
What this means is that the believer remains a king for as long as he is alive. And since the believer lives on in Christ, he is an everlasting king. This is why the bible says we shall reign with Christ in His father’s kingdom.
Nobody is capable of dethroning you except yourself. If you decide to abdicate your throne somebody else will occupy it. So, do not abdicate your throne. What would make a king abdicate his throne you may ask? We shall see some of those things in the next section.
