For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. The greatest of kings of the earth Isaiah 9:6-7.
One of the words of Archbishop Benson Idahosa is “Jesus is in control but I am in charge” it was spoken in relation to a witches conference that was scheduled to take place at a venue not far from his church headquarters. The words were apt and captures the essence of the verse above. He was too sure that the government of this world spiritual and temporal was on Jesus Christ and he was appointed to take charge in the city where he lives. Many like him are taking territories and being in charge.
Jesus did not come to negotiate the throne of his father David but to establish and order it. David is a shepherd king that obtained an eternal and enduring throne. One of the greatest king that ever lived among men; prophet priest and king. The shepherds were holding vigil with the sheep knowing that from among them the greatest shepherd king is rising again to the throne to rule the world.
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” Revelation 22:16
Jesus is the son of David and the son of God; the King of kings and Lord of lords. He wins every battle, taking territories and captives in every nation. The kings of the earth are all subject to him; they tremble at his wonderful counsel.
His saints has he appointed kings and priest to reign on the earth. Those that know their identity as kings and priests will no longer live as nonentities on the earth but live and reign as a kings with him.
The presidents of nations are stooge before him the saints reign and rule. The government is upon his shoulder, he is in control, we’re in charge. His mercy extends to all that desire his rule in their lives. They are appointed kings and priest to reign with him on the earth. He is in control, we’re in charge! He was born to reign and make kings to reign with him. The knowledge of him makes and raises kings, priests from lowly shepherds.
“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders:and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”Revelation 5:10-12.
Prayer; Father, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ; the son of God and the son of David. We receive his grace that transforms us to kings and priests that we might reign with him. He is still in control and we in charge by his matchless name.
