Text: Revelation 1:6
He hath made us kings and priest unto God and His father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
The first word in the passage above read HE HAS MADE, Jesus Himself is the one who has made us (those who have been washed from their sins Rev 1: 5). It is not something we are aspiring to be but we have been made king and priest to Serve God. So, the authority of the king is directly linked with the one who rules over the kings of the earth.
The second question we need to ask ourselves is who is a king? In the book of 1 Samuel 10: 1, a king is a captain or leader over God’s inheritance. Therefore, what is God’s inheritance? Psalm 24: 1 shows us that the inheritance of God is massive. And as such, there is no king without a kingdom.
What makes a king is his kingdom. In the inheritance of God, there is a kingdom that is carved out for you. Our kingship has something to do with our kingdom. God gives us gifts so that we can reign in our kingdom.
My question to you is, if you are a king where is your domain? When you are not ruling in your kingdom, God is not ruling there. Because you have submitted your authority to the devil. Revelation 5: 9 says our kingship is here on earth and not in heaven. Kings rule by decree in their kingdom and have the final say.
Ecclesiastes 8: 4 where the word of a king is there is power. Until you locate your kingdom you can’t rule as a king. I want you to understand that the fact you have been made a king does not guarantee that you will rule as one. Ecclesiastes 10: 5-7; there is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceeded from the ruler. Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place. I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
You can be a king and still live as a servant. Example of two kings in the bible, king Saul and David. David was a successful king while Saul failed woefully. Which one of them do you aspire to become? The choice is left to you.
