Jesus Christ is the King of Kings

The LORD is king; he is robed in majesty.

"And from Jesus Christ who faithfully reveals all truth to us. He was the first to rise from death, to die no more.  He is far greater than any king in all the earth. All praise to him who always loves us and who set us free from our sins by pouring out his lifeblood for us.   He has gathered us into his Kingdom and made us priests of God his Father. Give to him everlasting glory! He rules forever! Amen!"

"See! He is arriving, surrounded by clouds; and every eye shall see hi m—  yes, and those who pierced him.  And the nations will weep in sorrow and in terror when he comes. Yes! Amen! Let it be so!"  (Revelation 1: 5-7 TLB)

Jesus Christ broke the power of death. Alleluia!

Belief in the Resurrection to new life is the ultimate test of a true Christian.  How will you describe your faith in the Resurrection?

“But as to your real  question —whether or not there is a   resurrection  —  why, even the writings of Moses himself prove this. For when he describes how God appeared to him in the burning bush, he speaks of God as ‘the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of  Jacob.’  To say that the Lord is some person’s God means that person is alive, not dead! So from God’s point of view, all men are  living.”   (Luke 20: 37 - 38 TLB)

"Jesus Christ broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News."
(2 Timothy 1:10 NLT)

All things are Your servants gracious Father!

Please note carefully the attributes of our gracious Abba Father:  He owns everything in the world.  He gives wealth, honor and power to whomever He likes.  Nobody can make it otherwise.

"Yours is the mighty power and glory and victory and majesty. Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom."

"We adore you as being in control of everything.  Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the ruler of all mankind; your hand controls power and might, and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength.  (1 Chronicles 29: 11 - 12 TLB)

Doesn’t it give you joy and peace to know this?

God feeds on thanksgiving and praise

Being thankful in all circumstances is a great sacrifice that truly honors God.

"What I want from you is your true thanks; I want your promises fulfilled.   I want you to trust me in your times of trouble, so I can rescue you and you can give me glory."  (Psalm 50: 14 - 15 TLB)

"If today you hear his voice,
harden not your hearts."  (Psalm 95: 8 RM)

Your seeds of good deeds will become a tree of life

Do not bury your talents in the ground.

"Then why didn’t you deposit the money in the bank so that I could at least get some interest on it?’" (Luke 19: 23 TLB)

"You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you."    (John 15:16 AMP)

Jesus wants to be your guest today.

Great Mercy and Radical Conversion.

"And when Jesus reached the place, He looked up and said to him, Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today. So he hurried and came down, and he received and welcomed Him joyfully."   (Luke 19:5-6 AMP)

"Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!”   Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham."   (Luke 19:8-9 NLT)
