King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

        “And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.  Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.  And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’  These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”  Exodus 19:3-6.  NKJV.

        In our world today and even that of what we call Christianity has withered from biblical truths in a most dramatic way.  So many people think that God is a democracy, when in all reality, God is not a democrat, but He is a KING!  And we the people have been called forth by this King to be kings under Him, thus making Jesus the King of kings.  King means supreme, sovereign, and to have absolute power.  In most of our so called governments in the land today, we have what is called Presidents, or Prime Ministers, and these people maintain these positions by a vote of the people they represent in the land in which they are leading.  This in itself is a democratic standpoint.  For the people decide who will rule over them.  But a King is not voted in place, a King is born King.  “Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?  For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”  Matthew 2:1-2.  NKJV.

        God said to Moses that he and the people will become a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.  This is the first time God revealed a small part of the puzzle in regards to Who God is to man and who man is in God.  God is King and we who are a royal priesthood called of God and born of God, (Born again) are considered a kingship.  Now what kind of king would we all be unless we had something to be king over?  Since we are kings in training does it not make sense then that we should take lessons from a true King and learn a Kingship mentality?  We already know that King means or represents sovereign or supreme.  Meaning the King of kings has to answer to no one, because He is supreme and He is sovereign.

        When a Kings word or law goes out, that law is not up for option or choice by the people.  For Kingship is not a democratic rule.  Kingship is a supreme rule, and the Kings word is law!  Since we are all mentally caught up in democratic rule it’s easy to get caught up in the delusion of what is supreme and what is delegated.  All religions are based on democracy, but Christianity is based on Kingship, supremacy, and sovereignty.  If you attempt to change the law of a king it will most likely cost you your life.

        Even though the law of the land, which is based on democratic viewpoints, is always up for grabs and can be changed at anyone’s whim, and as long as the people support the change in that particular law, but the Law of the King cannot ever be changed for it stands eternal.  There is a major difference between kingship law and the law of the land by democratic decision.  Inasmuch as people change the laws of the land by democratic decision to meet their own sin-filled desires does not change the Law of God, Who is King and Supreme over all the earth.  People like to think that God is not up-to-date.  God is not up with the times, and God doesn’t grasp what today’s world is like.  These mere childish thoughts are based on nothing more than selfish, self-centered, sin-filled viewpoints that offer nothing more than death and destruction to the people who haven’t got the intelligence of a gnat.

        There is not a generation out there who does not try to outdo the past generation before them, saying the old know nothing, and that times have changed, and with pride and arrogant filled hearts the voices of fools are heard louder and louder as each generation passes, thus allowing the rule of Satan to progress and to take precedence in a world that is not truly his own.  Yet the world is still the same and people are still people with all the same problems, except the problems are in themselves just more advanced within the lives of people.  Just because a disease has run rampant, does not change the effect of that disease for it is still just as deadly now as it was then.  And sin is the biggest and greatest disease found in the heart and life of all men.

        How can a steward say he/she is greater than their master?  And thus think they can find wisdom in this belief founded on complete foolishness?  Does the clay say to the potter, “You know nothing, what is this you have done, let me change this for you and do it right?”  Yet the jars of clay known as people are continuously telling the Potter He is not right and knows not what is happening or going on.  How foolish man is, and God makes this perfectly clear, and because God does this does not mean that He falls from Sovereignty, or from Supreme rulership, or from being KING because He doesn’t and won’t, because everything belongs to God who made it, meaning God is Lord, meaning boss and owner.

        A prime minister or president does not own the land, they only represent, govern, and/or rule the land for a short time.  But a King owns the land, meaning the king owns the birds, the trees, the bugs, the animals, and the people in that land, He owns it eternally.  Thus a King is Lord for He is supreme ruler and owner of it.  Now pay attention people; God gave to Adam the world as his own kingdom, but still under the Kingship of God the Father.  “Then God said, “Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion (kingship) over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  Genesis 1:26.  NKJV.  To have dominion of is the same as kingship or rulership of.  But just because man was given a kingship, or a dominion, does not mean that he is supreme king, because we still have the Sovereign Lord, Who is King over us, so we are delegated an authority as kings in training, under a True and Righteous King named Jesus the Christ.  Thus Jesus is called the King of kings, and Lord of lords.  Thus we are called princes, for when the King of kings is present within our dominion we humbly bow to our King and Lord.  So when the King goes back to His own Kingdom, we again by the delegated authority step up to being a kingship again.  Do you understand what is being stated here?  In time you will so please be patient.

        Satan who witnessed this very anointing under God, basically freaked out and blew a mental diode when God gave to man this dominion called earth, and gave Lucifer nothing but the confinements and promise of Hell, which is his dominion or kingship place of rule.  This is where Satan wanted to enlarge his kingdom and set out to persuade man to follow after him and to give his/her dominion to Satan himself, which we did do when we forsook the word of God and followed after a lie.  Thus the kingdom of sin and hell took precedence within the life and world of man.  “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 6:23.  NKJV.  So we gave our dominion to Satan and we were left dominionless and helpless without the help of our LORD and KING to restore what was unrightfully taken from us.

        First of all what needs to be established is a thought pattern people can relate to in regards to this matter.  Since we come from God, because we all come from God, our citizenship is first found in heaven, for that is our true place of origin, because our Father is in Heaven; thus heaven is our home and our native land.  We come from heaven and are born on earth and granted the gift of life.  So our native country is called Heaven.  God is still our Father, Lord, and God.  We are called visitors or pilgrims here on earth now, because we gave to Satan what was rightfully ours and it was to us, our Father gave dominion of the earth to.  Now since God owns with all sovereign power Heaven and earth and all things created, it was God who did not give to Satan what was not his, but entertained Satan and his elect in the crafty stunt he pulled against the sons of men under God.  Since God is a gentleman all of the time, He will not go against His own spiritual law, but God did put in plan a motion of redemption for fallen man and to restore to him what was unrightfully taken from him.

        Once we get it into our hearts and minds that God is not a democracy but a KINGSHIP rule, we will come to some major but very important facts and points of who and what we are in Christ Jesus.  Now because God did not give dominion to Satan, but to man, who in turn gave up his own dominion based on a lie, means what was done is done.  But still our citizenship is found in heaven.  So heaven is our homeland, our beginning and hopefully our end.  We are still sons of a KING, meaning we are naturally born into Godly royalty, because we are called sons of God.  God who is all royalty and natural royalty can only have children of royalty.  But not all sons will accept the royalty which is naturally granted to them, thus they themselves succumb to the lies of the devil and fall under his dominion and do this willingly and to their own destruction.

        But God still says, we are a royal priesthood, or kings in training, meaning we are princes/princesses to the KING of kings.  Just because you are in a religion does not mean that you are in the Kingdom of God, for again, the Kingdom is not a democratic rule, but a KINGSHIP rule, and Jesus is the King of kings, and the word, law, and rule of the King cannot be voted against, changed, or disregarded by popular vote because KINGSHIP is not based on democratic views, but totally on a Righteous King and His ultimate word of authority (Theocracy).

        “The LORD is King forever and ever; the nations have perished out of His land.”  Psalm 10:16.  Since God is the eternal King and will reign forever and ever, and we who are sons of the Living God; and that is those people who have called upon the great name of Jesus the Christ to be Lord, God, King, and Savior of our lives who are considered kings.  Thus Jesus Christ is King of kings, and we are those little kings.

        When Rome was the most powerful physical force on earth, it was the concept in which they used and found that was in alignment with the very kingdom of God.  Even though this force was completely ungodly, the idea of reign was set on Heavens principals.  For when Rome conquered a new land; what they would do is leave the people in that country and raise them up to be representatives of Rome.  Thus the kingdom of Rome grew with stature and power.  A delegated authority was sent into the new land from Rome to represent and to make the new land exactly like that of Rome itself.  But there was only one king, and all the representatives would appease that king.

        When Great Britain went out conquering new lands they did the very same thing as Rome did, and still to this day, many countries are in the common wealth founded from the kingship of Great Britain.  Great Britain still has a queen and soon will have a king again.  But all in all this concept of rulership and kingship is that of one that is found in Heaven and on God’s own principles.  God Himself appoints and delegates authority in the lives of those who have called upon the name of Jesus His own Son.  So where God has established YOU – You become the new kingdom under God to make where you are at Holy, Righteous, and examples of kingship founded in you through and by the KING Himself known as Holy Spirit within you.

        All things were created for the good of those who love God.  But one thing that needs to be established and understood is, the flesh was created yes, but the spirit within you was not created for it was freely given.  God is Spirit – John 4:24.  So when we who are also spirit reunite with our Father Spirit, it is this uniting of spirits that bring us to completion and to bring us purpose and meaning in this life we all have here on planet earth.  God Who is a King wants us His children to be in like manner of Him.  Our King raises kings to represent His land, to His way of life, by His own Law, which is also eternal and unchangeable.

        Kingdom always represents authority and rulership.  Thus we are being called back into the Kingdom of the living God, because at one time we were a conquered people and thus we lost our kingdom to a stronger force then we ourselves are.  This is the fall of man when Satan deceived man into giving his/her kingdom to the liar and deceiver.  Thus we were sold as slaves into sin.  In Satan’s kingdom there is no delegated authority or power, for Satan is selfish, self-centered and wants to be all powerful himself.  Thus we have the hearts of men who are filled with this very desire known as greed and for being power hungry, and who are thoughtless in account of others and could care less about anyone else but themselves.  When a king should care about His subjects and be concerned about them and their welfare.  So how can a king be a king without subjects, without land, and without something to be king over?

        The Kingdom of heaven is not up for debate, and it is not run on a democratic theory, but is firmly established on a theocratic system, and God is the ultimate and final voice and law of that system.  So unless your religion points and relates to this theocracy system, the fact is you are not part of God’s Kingdom because you are attempting to establish your own kingdom outside of God, just like Satan does.  So in all reality people - who is your King?

        Not only are we called kings, but we are also called “Ambassadors”, and appointed by the KING of kings Himself.  An ambassador is always appointed, and not voted into position.  Now to get some understanding of what an ambassador does and literally stands for, let’s search this out together.  According to the Canadian Gage Dictionary the word “Ambassador” means: “The highest ranking diplomatic representative sent by one government or ruler to another.  On a special mission.”  Now putting this into perspective concerning spiritual terms and matters we find that we are called ambassadors of Christ.  “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.  For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”  2 Corinithians 5:20-21.  NKJV.  Now since we now know that Christ is a King and has a place of rule, which is known as Heaven and earth, we can come to some conclusive facts in regards to this knowledge.  First of all we who are called of Christ are being called to return to our native land, which is heaven and to become citizens of our native home.  We all have now been incited to do the will and desire of our King in the allotted land we are now presently in.  The land in which we are now in should be our mindset of kingship and the Kingdom of Heaven which we represent should take precedence within our lives to the glory of the Living God or King.  So we are to take rulership of and to make just like the Kingdom of God the area in which we are right now!  As Ambassadors this is the call of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, which we are all naturally from.  You are where you are for a reason, and that reason is to conquer the land and to make representation of the Kingdom of Heaven right where you are.

As an ambassador to and of Christ there are certain rights that you and I are entitled to.  So since we have been called ambassadors let’s examine what that actually means.  When a government or ruler appoints an ambassador in place and is called forth to represent the country they have been called to be an ambassador for, it is the responsibility of that government or king if you will – to take responsibility of the individual who has been appointed Ambassador.  First of all, an ambassador pays no bills, all of their bills are paid for in full by their king or ruler, and all of their education is paid for and this includes all family members.  Houses, cars, food, clothes, and whatever it is the ambassador desires in life; the country in which the ambassador represents covers all those costs, so that the ambassador has no financial problems, and this is done in order that they, the ambassador can focus on the country they represent in complete fullness.  Thus Christ said to us who are His ambassadors: “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?”  Matthew 6:25.  NKJV.  And again in Matthew 6:31-34.  “Therefore do not worry, saying, what shall we eat?  Or what shall we drink?  Or what shall we wear?  For all these things the Gentiles (Commoners) seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.  Sufficient for the day is its own troubles.”  NKJV.

        As the governments who has appointed their own ambassador in place and does all these very things for them, what makes you think that you being an ambassador of Christ, Who is the most powerful and eternal King known to man will not do these very things for you?  Are you thinking that man is greater than our Heavenly King?  To be called an ambassador of Christ means we are to represent His Kingdom in the kingdom He has given to us.  Even though this kingdom allotted to man is broken up into; for safety sake let us call these areas provinces or states; the point is we have an area given by God to us to be king over and to represent in all fullness, and the very King in which we have been called by in order to bring His Kingdom to life and to light in the lives of others who are now bound in the kingdom of hell, deceit, lies and manipulation by stronghold much bigger than they are, and these lost souls do not know the way home or who cannot find their way into the righteous Kingdom of God Who is our King who longs for them to come home and to share in the riches of our Heavenly Abba Father Who loves us all more than life.  This is the very duty of kings and ambassadors under the Most Powerful King in all the earth.
