"And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords." Revelation 19:16
When we think about Jesus, we mostly think about Jesus the man. The one who came and walked the earth, who humbled Himself and lived among us as one of us. We see Him as the crucified one hanging on a cross, the miracle worker, the Savior of the world. We think about Him as the one who is with us always as our friend and confidant. When we go before Him in prayer and petition, and when we call upon His name, even then this is the image we have of Him.
May I remind you that though He became a man and took away our sins, and though He is a friend who sticks close to us, and while we can share a relationship with Him, He is a King. And not just another king but the King of kings. He is seated at the right hand of majesty on high. He occupies the throne in Heaven. He is clothed in majesty and wears a crown. He holds a mighty scepter. He has a vesture that says, "King of kings and Lord of lords".
Angels bow before Him. He is to held in awe and revered. He is glorified. One day every knee will bow before Him and confess that He is Lord. It won't be the God-man Jesus we are bowing before, it will be the God-King Jesus.
We need to stop seeing Him only in His humanity and see Him in His Deity. And when we approach Him, approach Him as the King who has all dominion, all authority, and all power. He makes all the final decisions, pronounces judgment, gives decrees and does what He wills. He rules and reigns over all the universe and His ruling stands forever. This is the One we are approaching in prayer and worship.
Have a great day. He was Jesus the God-man when He walked the earth, now He is seated on the throne of Heaven as the King of kings and Lord of lords.
