KING OF KINGS – LORD OF LORDS.

Throughout the entire Bible, Jesus is portrayed as the King of Kings.  The final picture God gives us regarding Jesus is in Revelation

Rev_19:16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

While He is our Shepherd and Savior, He could be neither if He were not first and foremost the KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

It took a King with Kingdom power and Kingdom righteousness to defeat all the powers of darkness and atone for our sin.

Yet, preachers and churches do not present Him as such, He will forever only be the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the earth.  He is MUCH more than that.

How can we possibly proclaim the Gospel of His kingdom if we don’t see Him as King?
Below is a discussion of what knowing Him as KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS means in practical and gospel terms.  Have we been preaching the Gospel that He told us to preach?  There is no other gospel than the gospel of the kingdom.  What we hear and preach is something less than that

Mat_4:23  And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Mat_9:35  And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Mat_24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Mar_1:14  Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mar_1:15  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel
