Phil.3:10 “I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead…” (emphasis added).
We start today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is that every eyewitness of Jesus’ resurrection held on to their testimony until death. The twelve gave their lives for the testimony that Jesus is alive. When I think about Thomas, ‘doubting Thomas’, I am totally blown away. When the other disciples told Thomas that they had seen Jesus, Thomas said, ‘I will not believe until I see Him with my own eyes and touch Him. You can say anything you want to say.’ Thomas saw and touched the living Jesus and this same Thomas died in India; he was impaled. Thomas was told to deny Christ, he refused saying, ‘I cannot deny the One I have seen and touched. Thomas did not deny Jesus because he experienced the resurrected Christ. I pray that you will experience the living Christ in the Name of Jesus, because Jesus is alive! I want you to proclaim it out loud that Jesus is alive! Jesus is alive and well. To get up, to arise and shine and be all that God has called you to be, you must know the living Jesus, that Jesus Christ is alive. Again, I pray that you will indeed know Him and experience the power of His resurrection.
Secondly, to get up, to arise and shine and be all that God has called you to be, you must know that Jesus is King, the King Jesus. Phil.2:8-11 “he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (emphasis added). This portion of scripture describes everything that happened at good Friday and highlights the fact that Jesus’ jurisdiction knows no bounds. For you to come into resurrection power, you must know that Jesus Christ is King.
Rev.17:14 “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.” (NIV, emphasis added). Before this, the ten kings that came into power (how be it briefly), pulled all their forces together and joined forces with the Antichrist to wage war against the Lamb. However, scripture states that “…the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings…” All the kings of the earth can join their hands together, but they will fail when they come against Jesus because He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. I pray that every force that joins hands together in your life, every force that gathers against you and against your destiny will fail in the Name of Jesus. Why? It is because Jesus is King of kings and Jesus is Lord of lords. It is such an awesome privilege to be called by His Name. I want you to say it aloud wherever you are, say ‘Jesus is King!’
Prayer [song]: You are the King of kings, Lord of lords, everlasting King. Saviour, Redeemer, soon coming King. You are awesome… Awesome is Your Name. Amen!
