King of Kings, and Lord of Lords
And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a Name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His Name is called The Word of God ( Revelation 19:11-13 ).
I am thankful today, Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords.
This portion of Scripture scares the devil to death. Not only is he scared of this Scripture, but the world is also scared of this Scripture.
These Scriptures are not talking about the rapture of the church, but talking about the literal return of Jesus to this earth, to smite the nations at Armageddon.
Satan is the God of this world at the present time, and he will not give up without a fight.
Jesus is going to come, and set up His Kingdom on the earth, and Satan is going to try to stop Him through his armies.
When Jesus splits the clouds, and comes riding upon this white horse, with all the saints of God, the nations will see Him, and become confused and confounded.
When Jesus puts His foot on the Mt. of Olives, it is going to be a wonderful time for Israel. This will be a great time for the nation of Israel, but a fearful time for the nations who know not God.
Jesus Christ is a many crowned King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. He has more
crowns and victories, than any earthly king in history.
Jesus never had an army.
He never handled a sword.
Today, He stands as the greatest conqueror, and the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Verse twelve said, Jesus had many crowns upon His head.
On His head is the crown of the King of Heaven.
His Empire is higher than the Heavens, and lower than the lowest Hell. The earth is His wide domain.
He is the great, “I AM.”
He is the everlasting Father.
He is the Jehovah God of Israel.
There is no other God, except Jesus Christ, the King of Heaven. He has the right to wear the crown of the King of Heaven.
On His head is the crown of creation.
All things were made by Him.
By His Word, He created the mountains.
By His Word, He carved the valleys.
By His Word, He created light.
By His Word, He brought forth the seas.
By His Word, He balanced the clouds.
He molded every atom.
He brightened every star.
He created all the forces.
He hung the world upon His Word.
Everything in our Universe, obeys the voice of God.
No other king can wear the crown of creation.
Jesus has a right to wear the crown of creation.
On His head is the crown of providence.
He controls the destiny of man, and the destiny of angels.
He guides His church with the power of His Spirit.
Our sinful world may be out of control, but Jesus has it under His control. He is allowing sin to grow until the harvest. At the harvest, He will burn the tares, those who refuse to live for Him.
He holds the world in His hands.
He holds the stars in His hands.
He holds the mountains in His hands.
He holds the rivers in His hands.
He holds the seas in His hands.
He holds you and me in His hands.
He has the right to wear the crown of providence.
On His head is the crown of grace.
Jesus is the giver of grace.
He is the giver of the water of life.
The grace and mercy of God is flowing today, from His throne.
He sits today, as the resurrected Christ, the Almighty God.
There is no other king, who can wear the crown of grace.
He has the right to wear the crown of grace upon His head.
Jesus laid all these crowns aside nearly two thousand years ago, and stooped to become the king of humanity. He came to this earth for crowns of redemption.
There have been kings in the past, who tried to be king of humanity.
Nebuchadnezzar tried to be king of humanity, but he failed.
Napoleon tried to be king of humanity, but he failed.
Alexander the Great tried to be king of humanity, but he failed.
Jesus Christ is the only King who has become King of humanity. He did this by dying on the cross of Calvary for the sins of the whole world.
No other earthly king can take upon himself, the crown of the king of humanity.
Jesus bore the battle scars of redemption in His body. Men of this world can boast of their battle scars, but they are not like the battle scars of Christ. He has holes in His hands, and a hole in His side. How about this for battle scars?
He has the right to wear the crowns of humanity upon His head.
He has the right to wear the crown of the conquest of death.
He has the right to wear the crown of the conquest of sin.
He has the right to wear the crown of the conquest of suffering.
He has the right to wear the crown of the conquest of sorrow.
He has the right to wear the crown of the conquest of Satan.
Jesus was crucified.
Jesus was dead.
Jesus was buried.
Jesus descended into Hell.
All this sounds like words of defeat, but He arose as the Victor over death, Hell, and the grave.
He is the only King who has ascended out of Hell.
Napoleon has not ascended out of Hell.
Alexander the Great has not ascended out of Hell.
Nero has not ascended out of Hell.
Hitler has not ascended out of Hell.
Jesus is the only King that came from Hell. He stands supreme today, as the King of Kings, and the Lord or Lords.
Upon the head of Jesus Christ are many crowns, but He is waiting for one more crown. He is waiting for the bridegroom crown.
I believe we are living in the rapture generation.
The Lord is soon to rapture His church out of this world.
He is soon to take on His bride, the church.
This is the generation that will bring back the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords.
At any moment, the trump will sound, and the dead in Christ will rise first, we which are alive and remain, will be caught up to meet them in the air, and so shall we be with Jesus.
When this happens, then will Jesus take on the bridegroom crown.
The marriage supper is ready.
All the chairs are in place.
The food is on the table.
Everything is polished and swept.
Bring in the bride!
Bring home the church!
Sound the trumpet, welcome the bride!
Where are you going prophets of God?
Where are you going Rahab?
Where are you going Paul?
Where are you going Apostles?
Where are you going saints of God?
“We are going to the mountain of God. We are going to the throne, and will cast our crowns down at the feet of Jesus, and we will crown Him as our bridegroom.”
Jesus Christ will be the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords, throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.
I have crowned Jesus, King of my life today.
Have you crowned Him, King of your life?
Revelation 3:11 says, “Behold, I come quickly; hold fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”
Saint of God, hold fast that which you have.
Hold fast the Word of God.
Hold fast the teachings of your pastor.
Hold fast your faith in God.
Hold fast the Holy Spirit.
Hold fast the Name of Jesus Christ.
Hold fast that which Christ purchased with His blood.
Let no man take your crown.
Let no devil take your crown.
Satan is out to get you. He is out to sift you as wheat. He is out to take your crown of life. He doesn’t want you to go to Heaven. He doesn’t want you to live eternally with Jesus.
Judas lost his crown.
Judas lost his mansion.
Judas lost his soul.
He sold eternal life with Jesus, for thirty dirty pieces of silver.
It was not worth it.
It was not a bargain.
It was not a wise choice.
It was a stupid thing to do.
The devil took his crown.
Hold on, saint of God. You cannot afford to give up your crown. Come to church. Pray always. Hold fast the faith. Be determined to live for Jesus in this ungodly generation.
I am not discouraged today, because the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords, is on His way.
Look out, world!
Look out, devil!
Look out, Hell!
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
God Bless you all Paster Bob
