25th Day of Advent: Jesus is King of kings

"They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers."
Revelation 17:14
It's Christmas Eve Eve.  In two days we will be celebrating the King who was born as a baby in a dirty stable.  This year is even more special for me because I am studying Revelation at BSF.  We have seen His glory and majesty as He sits on the throne in Heaven.  I can see what He left for us, so that we could experience it forever with Him.   

There is no other King like Him.  He rules over all other kings, humans, animals: all of creation.  But He isn't a ruthless King but loving and gentle.  He is the best King we could ever ask for.  One who laid down His life to pay the price His subjects couldn't.  

So this year when you look at that manger scene, will you see the babe as a King?  The One who holds the power to open the scroll of God.  The One who had all the glory in Heaven, yet left it so that He could save you.  How will you worship Him as the days are dwindling to Christmas Day?  What words of praise will you savor these next couple of days as you reflect on His majesty and grace?

In His Love,
