Jesus The King-Judge

Psalm 110

1 “The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.” 2 The LORD will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”  3 Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew. 4 The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.” 5 The Lord is at Your right hand; He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath. 6 He will judge among the nations, He will fill them with corpses, He will shatter the chief men over a broad country. 7 He will drink from the brook by the wayside; Therefore He will lift up His head.

The verse that Jesus quoted about himself in Luke 20 comes from David in Psalm 110 - “The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet!”

Now that is what I call total victory. Guess what? All of Christ’s enemies (there are many) will be defeated when He returns bodily to earth one day soon. And it says of you His Christians “Your people will volunteer freely in the day of your power, in holy array…” You are there in the army of Christ, with holy battle garb on, ready to take the total victory with Christ at the head! Sin, evil, Satan, his minions, wordlings, no one can stop Him , and He is a about to make a clean sweep of it. He is the mighty Messiah, but His kingdom is not OF this world, even though it is taking over this world, one heart at a time. Jesus is our Lord, and He is our Priest Forever According to the Order of Melchizedek. As our king, He fights and delivers, as priest He atones, loves, heals and forgives. You need it all. Believe and do not doubt that today. And let that incredible hope drive everything you do. Live actively engaged in this present age in order to bring in the age to come!

In prayer today…

Thank Christ that because He is a conquering king and the Lion of Judah, you are delivered from all evil by faith in His name!
