KINGS OF KING
verse 4 "John to seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from seven Spirits which are before his throne;" verse 5 "And from Jesus Christ, who is faithful witness, and first begotten of dead, and prince of kings of earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,"
verse 6 "And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."
The title of this article might have been more attractive if it had read 'KING OF KINGS’. But before making a rash judgement that it is just another piece of heresy, let us proceed from a central point of common agreement. To every real Christian, Jesus Christ who is our personal Lord and Saviour deserves royal title of 'KING OF KINGS' and 'LORD OF LORDS'(1 Tim 6:15, Rev.19:16).
When we examine title 'KING OF KINGS' we easily deduce that Jesus Christ possesses a kingship and kingdom that surpasses that of any king that lived, that lives, and that will live throughout human history.
Daniel 2(KJV) verse 44 "And in days of these kings shall God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever."
verse 6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." verse 7 "Of increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of LORD of hosts will perform this."
Yet we can go further to identify another class of 'kings'-those who reign in life by Jesus Christ:
Romans 5(KJV) verse 17 "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ."
These persons begin to reign by being born into God's kingdom:
verse 3 "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see kingdom of God." verse 4 "Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter second time into his mother's womb, and be born?"
verse 5 "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of Spirit, he cannot enter into kingdom of God."
