Christ the King

Christ the King
Make no mistake that Jesus Christ is King. In modernity where God has been reduced and ignored, and Jesus has been reduced to a nice man with good ideas, it is not only extremely foolish to ignore Christ's kingship, but it is flat out wrong not to acknowledge it.

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)
The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. (Jeremiah 23:5)
 "In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." (Matthew 3:1,2).

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." (Matthew 4:17).

"Jesus said to him, 'Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.'" (Luke 9:60)

"And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14).

And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself: how then shall his kingdom stand? (Matthew 12:26)

Pilate therefore said to him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered," You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice."(John 18:37)

"The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." (Romans 14:17)

Let Jesus be the Lord over your life and work daily for the Kingdom.
