Day 179- Richmond, Virginia: King of Kings
Who do we consider the King of all Kings? Do we consider people such as Edward I, Henry V, Henry VIII as noble leaders who may be worthy of this prestigious title or do we consider Jesus Christ not only the King of Kings, but also one of the most impactful people to ever walk the Earth? So many questions that puzzle our minds as we continue on our Walk with God, that only our Faith can help us answer.
In Revelation, we are forewarned about what is to come in the future by the hand of the Apostle John: “The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw–that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near”. There can be no delay and our actions speak louder than our words, right? This passage leads us to the answer to our question about who is the rightful King of Kings and the Lord of Lords from whom we should serve, which also comes from Revelation:
The Rider on the White Horse
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords“. Do we believe what we have been taught and heard or do we reject the Truth as sinners who lack faith in the absence of sight? From Galatians:
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen”.
