On His robe at His thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords. Revelation 19:16 New Living Translation
If you have been born again any amount of time, you have probably heard Jesus called, “The Kings of kings and the Lord of lords.” The question is do you know who these ‘kings and lords’ are that He is King and Lord over? That would be YOU and ME.
Together they will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And his called and chosen and faithful ones will be with him.” Revelation 17:14 New Living Translation
That last verse is exciting because it says when Jesus puts the final beat down on the devil we are going to be with Him. That’s right, we will be right there with Jesus. But that’s not our subject today. What I want to focus on is what does our kingship and lordship mean and afford us? It affords us the same rights and privileges and power and authority as JESUS!!! The scripture tells us that the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death in Romans 8:32. So we are free from the law of sin and death. Romans chapter 6 makes an even more defining statement.
Knowing that Christ, having been raised up from among those who are dead, no longer dies. Death over Him no longer exercises lordship. For the death He died, He died with respect to our sinful nature once for all. But the life He lives, He lives with respect to God Romans 6:9-10 Kenneth Wuest Translation
Did you see what that just said? It said death over Him no longer exercises lordship. Jesus is Lord even over death. You are a lord in and under Jesus that makes you a lord over death as well. Death no longer exercises lordship over Christ and you are in Christ so death has no lordship over you in any way, shape or form. Understand all fear has it’s root in the fear of death. When you are no longer afraid of death because of the revelation that death has no more dominion over you through Christ Jesus, it frees you on a level that you have never been freed before. Death used to reign and in unbelievers lives it still does and unfortunately in believers lives who do not know the truth that makes them free. But look at what The Word of God says.
When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. Romans 5:12 New Living Translation
Adam’s one sin brought death to every person who ever lived. But thank God the Father He did not leave us there. No through Christ Jesus He gave us back the eternal, blessed, healed and whole life that God the Father had planned for us all along. Death never was The Father’s plan. Growing old and dying was never part of The Father’s plan.
So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21 New Living Translation
Grace who is Jesus rules now. Make sure you do not allow sin and death rule over you in any way shape or form. You are to walk in the perfect will of God and accept nothing less. That will is GRACE!!!
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
