I AM King

Rev. Doral Pulley, pastor

Scripture – “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings…(Revelation 19:16).”

Denial – “I release the erroneous thought that I AM anything less than royalty.”

Affirmation – “I AM royalty.”

In addition to Jesus, the Christ being called Lord of lords, he was also known as King of kings.  Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ described him this way, “the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and the Lord of lords (I Timothy 6:16).” Jesus, the Christ not only shows us how to be lords leading in a general way but he also teaches us how to be kings and queens with a very specific domain.  Every king has a kingdom. The word, kingdom, means the king’s domain, the place where the king rules and reigns.

Many of the Hebrew people where looking for Jesus to be a natural king to deliver them from the Roman Empire. Jesus explained to them that his kingdom was not of this world (John 18:36). His kingdom was not anything physical or temporal (meant and drink) but righteousness, peace and joy (Romans 14:17). Jesus knew that his Kingdom was the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is a system, a form of government, a way of thinking, speaking and behaving in which God is the center.  Therefore, he taught his disciples to pray, “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).”

Whether we are called kings or queens, we are all royalty. God has given each one of his children a specific area in which to rule (perfect) and reign (make a difference).  It is important for us to discover our kingdom. Is it education, dance, business, drama, politics, poetry, economics, mime, marketing, singing, care giving or playing an instrument?
