His Glorious Title

His Glorious Title – King of Kings, Lord of Lords

The last time He was here, He was here in weakness.  His glory hidden in the frailty of a human body.  Last time He was here, He allowed men to defy Him, blaspheme Him, speak against Him, beat Him, mock Him, and ultimately nail His body in execution to a Cross.  He chose to suffer indignity and pain on that Cross.  He let the very people He was dying to save hurl abuses at Him.  He loved them!  And in a moment that causes all heaven and earth to shake, He chose to die.  Total humiliation.  Nobody realized who they were dealing with.  Nobody knew that all glory and honor was His.  Nobody knew.  His first coming was cloaked in secrecy and who could have imagined that the One hanging dead on the Cross was God incarnate?

If this passage tells us anything, it tells us that the day is coming when the secret will be out and when He comes again, it won’t be in weakness my friends, it will be in absolute power and glory.  Here He is, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
