About This Message

 

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star at its rising and have come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:2 (CSB)

“Rabbi,” Nathanael replied, “You are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel!”
John 1:49 (CSB)

To keep this command without fault or failure until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 God will bring this about in his own time. He is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.
1 Timothy 6:14-15 (CSB)

Then Pilate went back into the headquarters, summoned Jesus, and said to him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Are you asking this on your own, or have others told you about me?”35 “I’m not a Jew, am I?” Pilate replied. “Your own nation and the chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?”36 “My kingdom is not of this world,” said Jesus. “If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight, so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.”
John 18:33-36 (CSB)

JESUS IS KING

1. Jesus is KING over the spiritual realm

“My kingdom is not of this world,” said Jesus. “If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight, so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.”
John 18:37 (CSB)

2. Jesus is the KING over Truth

“Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”38 “What is truth?” said Pilate.
John 18:37-38 (CSB)

“It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.”
2 John 1:4 (NIV)

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
Ephesians 1:5

I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus.
1 John 2:12

Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare, and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11

3. Jesus is KING over me

Jesus replied, “I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” “What is truth?” said Pilate.
John 18:37-38 (CSB)

…He must increase, but I must decrease.
John 3:30 (ESV)
