TOPIC:JESUS, THE REIGNING KING
Opening Text: For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet (1 Corinthians 15:25).
Whenever certain things are trendy, such as a hairstyle, clothes, shoes, cars, designs or a business for example, many make comments like, "This is the reigning thing." What they’re trying to say is, "This is the vogue of the moment." I always interject when anyone makes such a statement around me, because the only One who’s reigning is Christ Jesus; and I’m reigning with Him.
Notice what our opening verse says: "For he (Christ) must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet." He’s the reigning King, and you’re reigning with Him: "For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:17). Colossians 1:13 tells us that we belong to the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. So, as a child of God you live in this spiritual kingdom where Jesus reigns.
You therefore shouldn’t accept that anything else but the Lord is reigning. He’s the only King, and we only recognize His eternal Kingdom to which we belong. He must reign over demons, devils, hell, and the grave. He must reign over sickness, disease, and infirmities. He must reign over them until they’re all subdued, and have no more voice or way to express themselves.
As long as a tumour, cancer or any kind of sickness can express itself in your body, it’s against your reign. So what do you do in such a condition? Don’t keep quiet. Refuse to accommodate sickness in the Name of Jesus. That’s how to make the Word of God reign in your life. Reject everything that’s not of God and endorse only that which is consistent with His perfect will for you.
Confession: I dwell in Zion; the Kingdom of light, and of God’s dear Son where I reign with Christ and rule by the power of the Spirit! I thank you Father, for bringing me into such a beautiful place of glory, honour and prosperity. Halleluiah!
