The King Of All Kings Will Reign Forever
Last year in September, I spent much of the day glued to the television, watching the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. Yesterday, I watched the coronation of King Charles III, and I was drawn in by all the pageantry steeped in tradition. King Charles was crowned as King, and his son and grandsons in line for the throne were in attendance as he took the crown. As I watched the service, I couldn’t help but think how it was so different for the King of ALL kings.
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, wasn’t crowned like King Charles. King Charles was crowned with pomp and circumstance, serenaded with a chorus of children in beautiful robes. He placed his loyalty to the church, the state, and the crown, and then was anointed with Holy Olive Oil from a grove of trees that is reported to have been around in the time of Jesus.
A crown of jewels weighing five pounds was placed upon his head, and a gilded robe was placed on his shoulders. King Charles was given a sword, a royal scepter, and an orb. When the two-hour ceremony was over, he rode through the streets in a golden carriage before going to his residence in Buckingham Palace.
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, was not treated similarly. He was born in a manger, with only a few people at His birth. He was treated poorly by the people from His hometown in Nazareth, who tried to throw Him over a cliff to be rid of Him.
24 “Truly I tell you,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown. 25 I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land. 26 Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon. 27 And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed—only Naaman the Syrian.”
28 All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. 29 They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff. 30 But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way.
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, started His coronation by riding a donkey, not a horse or in a carriage.
8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, received a crown, not made of jewels, but made of thorns. He was mocked, spit on, and beaten.
29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said.
19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, did not leave in a carriage before going to a palace. Instead, He was placed in a dark, empty tomb for three days. Then, Jesus, the King of ALL kings, rose from the grave before ascending to sit on His throne on the right hand of God.
44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”’
Jesus, the King of ALL kings, will reign forever. There will be no other King after Him, no passing of the crown to another generation. He alone is the King!
To God Goes The Glory!
Have A Blessed Day!
Praise God!! Amen!
You are a great witness for our God by spreading the gospel through your emails. God’s message is shared with your followers and you are definitely an inspiration for me to strive to be a better Christian and spread God’s word.
Beautifully written! Love your comparisons. How very different they were treated, yet Jesus has the power to save us from our sins and the other has no power spiritually yet he is glorified.
God bless you for always giving God the glory!
Thank you for your post. Your comparison shows there really is no comparison. When we think about our One True King, Jesus Christ, it makes all the traditional pomp and circumstance from the last couple of days seem quite silly. God bless you.
Thanks for sharing this! I wonder what the future holds as I feel we are living in
biblical prophecy times God wins‼️
Thank you for posting these scriptures. A very real comparison only our God can give and promises to give eternal life to those who believe in him. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Blessings to you today.
Thanks so much for the $50 Amazon gift card!!! I have been following your blog for years. I was so excited to see my name. Feeling blessed.
Thank you for another great post… you seem to have a gift to write just the right thing..I thank you..
and yes..to God goes the Glory!
Amen!! My hubby and I talked about that yesterday. It’s humongous to think someday the kings and queens of this world will stand before the KING that reigns forever.
Nice parallel! Yes, Jesus Christ is the One and Only True King!!!
Thank you, for this beautiful post!
What a beautiful tribute to the King above all kings! Thankyou very much!!
Your comparison between King Jesus, Lord of All and
King Charles was outstanding.
Thank you for those words raising up The King of Kings.
Amen 🙏!! Thank you for sharing this beautiful comparison of our real King Jesus Christ!
A reminder to keep our eyes focused on the Real King….our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!! Thank you once again for a reminder and for sharing your faith with us.
Amen … we need His return so much!
Tania, this message is so beautiful and a great reminder for us to focus our eyes and hearts upon the real King, Our Lord and Savior. Thank you!
I completely agree with you.
To God goes the Glory!
Amen and Amen! To God be the Glory Forever! 💕
I love to see the clothes and make up posts but I love your Sunday posts the best.
Tania, I enjoy your daily posts and look forward to what fun and creative ways you put your clothes together, but today’s post was the most beautiful of all. No outfit is complete without our inner beauty and reminders of all that was sacrificed…my favorite John 3:16
King of kings, Lord of Lords!
To God be the glory!
Thank you for your so inspiring posts!
Amen and well said.
Praise by to God!!
Have a blessed day. Thanks for your message. I enjoy your Sunday posts.
I’m grateful I came across your post and know it is a lot of work. I felt from the beginning you were a woman of true and honest faith and the Lord is important to you and you continue to inspire me with your daily scriptures and your positive outlook in life. Praise be to God and blessings to you and your family.
Such a beautiful post. God bless you.
I love your comparison of Jesus, the True King, compared to King Charles. To God be all glory and honor!
Love this! He is our true King and He shall reign forevermore. beautiful message!
Moving analogy. Really puts things in perspective. Thank you!
Love this post. Thank you. And blessings to you and yours.
Thank you Tania for that wonderful message! I am so thankful Jesus Christ is our King!!!! Praise be to God! Have a wonderful Sunday!
Love your posts for Sundays❣️
So thrilled you’re a born again believer…have a blessed day!
What a great way to describe it!! It feels so wrong to see someone bow and pledge allegiance to another human-regardless of tradition. We should only bow to our one and only King🙏
So thought provoking. I watched yesterday too and was amazed at the pageantry! I am sadden to think how Jesus was treated. Our reality is he lives in our lives daily. For that I am thankful and thank you for reminding me of what he did for me.
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life no one comes to the Father but by me” King of All The Kings!
Amen!!! Tania Amen!!! Thank you for acknowledging the “The King Of All Kings”. I am beyond grateful for Jesus shedding his blood on the cross and saving me. Your Sunday posts keep getting better and better. Thank you for all of your encouraging words as this messed up world needs more positive in it.
