"Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19

Hello Friends: 

     I have heard the song “King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, Glory, Hallelujah” for many years. But I don’t think I ever really internalized what it means. I sang it as a fact that I heard from a song, not a realization in my heart.
     This morning I read Revelation 1:5 and was struck by its plainness. John the Revelator wrote, “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth.”
     These days we are aware of backchannel meetings of rich power brokers whose goal is to sway the course of history. They are engaged in sort of a chess match to influence leaders and even kings to their way of thinking. I can almost see their wry smile at the power they wield over the masses, not even really caring about who might suffer as a result.
     But, on the board with these backchannel chess match pawns, is a more powerful Chessmaster. Psalm 2:1-6 explains it.
1Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth take their stand,
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and his Anointed One:
3 “Let’s tear off their chains
and throw their ropes off of us.”

4 The one enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord ridicules them.
5 Then he speaks to them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath:
6 “I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”

Until I see you next time, keep sharing Jesus with others,
