KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:37. And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Pilate wrote or, he caused to be written, this is Jesus, the King of the Jews. The Jews sharply rejected it and went on to crucify Him. Kings determine the lifestyle of their subjects. Tyrants terrorise their subjects and make a mess of their lives. Prov. 29:2 KJV “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn”.
There are indeed two different kinds of Kings that rule over men. They are Jesus or the devil. Ephesians 2:2 KJV “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: “The devil is called the Prince of the power of the air.
He expresses himself as the self will of the individual.
This is the reason most people think, they rule themselves, and it is not any devil.
What are the traits of self will? The following verse reveals the traits of self will.2Ti 3:2 KJV For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. The scriptures teach that, when men are in this state, that is what will result in the peril of the last days.2 no Timothy 3:1,2
What type of king is Jesus? Jesus is all powerful who can protect his subject from any invading powers. He is filled with love and so fills His subjects with love. He is the Prince of peace and so His subjects have an abundance of peace. He is the great healer and blesses His subjects with every good thing. He died to give His life to His subjects.
Now, I ask again, who is your king? Is it Jesus or Self will? The man who is self willed thinks he is free to do what he wants, yet he knows that he is filled with fears of all kinds, and he is ruled by passions that leaves him peace less.
Dear brother or sister, king Jesus says come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matt 11:28).Why not make that decision today. He stands at the door of your heart and gently knocks, waiting for your positive responds. Respond today.
Dear Heavenly father, I have been ruling my life, which has left me sinful. Jesus, I repent of my ways and welcome Jesus as the Lord and saviour of my life. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul.
Prov 14:12 KJV “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”.
Rev 3:20 KJV “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
