KINGS FROM YOUR LOINS

KINGS FROM YOUR LOINS
by

ANCHOR VERSE: “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father, to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:6

The Biblical significance of kingship and priesthood is exemplified through the lives of two prominent figures in Scripture: David and Melchizedek.

The significance of kingship and priesthood, as demonstrated by David and Melchizedek, points to Jesus Christ as the ultimate fulfillment of both roles. Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords, well as the eternal High Priest, who offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the redemption of humanity. Through Him, believers are now considered part of a royal priesthood, called to serve and represent God on earth 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

THE PRIVILEGES OF KINGSHIP & HEIRS TO GOD’S KINGDOM:

  1. Access to His presence. Ephesians 2:18, “For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”
  2. Authority to overcome spiritual battles. Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
  3. Promise to rule over kingdoms. James 2:5, “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?”
  4. Assurance of eternal life: Titus 3:7, “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

RESPONSIBILITIES OF KINGSHIP:

  1. Reflecting Godly Character as representative of God. Deuteronomy 7:6, “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”
  2. Leading by example. 1Peter2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
  3. Servant leadership-being mindful that we are called to serve others. Mark 10:44, “And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.”

VICTORY WAY:

As believers, we are called to a higher purpose. Revelation 1:6 reminds us that through our connection to Christ, we have been made kings and priests, with a divine mandate to serve God and bring glory to His name. We also have the authority through Jesus Christ to reign and rule in this world. By embracing our identity and living out our responsibilities, we can make a significant impact in our families, communities, and the world around us.

Prayer:

Father, I step into my divine position as a priest and a king. As I live to fulfill my divine mandate, let kings also come from my loins in Jesus name.
