King Jesus,
Hebrews 1:8, 10-12,Isiah 9:7, 40:11, Isaiah 40:11, Ezekiel 34:23, Isaiah 9:6-7, Jeremiah 23:5, Daniel 7:13-14, Jeremiah 33:15-16, Zechariah 9:9, Colossians 1:11-14

We tend to think of Jesus as our Savior, the one who rescues us from sin and gives us access to heaven. Or we see Him as a miracle-worker, the one who taught us about how to live here and now. But how often do you stop and consider Jesus as your king? The Bible is full of references to Jesus as the eternal king, so let's take a look.


Kings come and go in our world; they reign; they die or are deposed. Other leaders are elected, overthrown or installed but none last forever. Only Jesus is the king who reigns eternally...beyond the reach of time past, time present and future time. Hebrews 1:8 says,
"Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom" (ESV).
Reading on, we see just how "eternal" or timeless and unchanging King Jesus is.
"You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.
But you are the same,
and your years will have no end." (Hebrews 1:10-12, ESV).
And the prophet Isaiah described it this way:
"Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore" (Isaiah 9:7, ESV).
Why is this so important? Well, since Jesus is the King Eternal, you can trust Him to always be the one in charge. He is the king you can depend on, without change, without limitation, no matter what you experience here and now. No one can vote Him out or depose Him. Furthermore, because He will never die, you never have to worry that He will leave the kingdom to one who's less equipped to rule.


As the king, Jesus has all the rights and privileges of rule over the whole earth--and that includes you. But He's no tyrant. He's a king who saves and serves. Look through these verses and describe the characteristics He has.
Isaiah 40:11
Ezekiel 34:23
Isaiah 9:6-7
Jeremiah 23:5
Daniel 7:13-14
Jeremiah 33:15-16
Zechariah 9:9
Colossians 1:11-14

  • How do these things influence your view of Jesus as king?
  • Why would you want to live under a king like this?


If you have the opportunity to meet a king or queen, you'll quickly discover it's serious business. There are rules to follow about what to wear, how to shake hands, what you can and can't say, when you show up, etc. There's no room to be casual or careless.
  • So how do you usually approach Jesus?
  • What needs to change if you take Him seriously as king?
  • What can you do to prepare to meet with Him?
  • What sort of respect or honor do you need to show Him?
What will you do today to meet Jesus as your king?

My Comment: I pray all who read this will remember there is only one true King and He is Jesus the Christ. We can either accept Him as King or reject Him. Accept heaven as our true home or reject it. Accept God as the one true God or reject Him. We will never have more important questions  in our lives. I choose Jesus and know God is my God and heaven is my home and I am not of this world though I must live here for now and my directions are to Love God, my neighbor as myself and make disciples.
Will you be His disciple? Will you accept Jesus as your Savior? I hope and pray you will as I would love to go home and meet you and know you as my brother or my sister. I praise God for you and that you are reading this and thinking about the things of heaven. Ask and He will help you to know Him and He will guide you to all His truths.
Lord Jesus thank you for going to the cross for us for giving completely of yourself. help us to follow your example and when we are being filled with Your love we will give Your love freely to all and Your forgiveness. Thank You Abba for sending Your precious Son. Help us to love like You. In Jesus Holy Name, Amen
