Jesus Christ The King (LG66)

John 10:16 "And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd."

We thank God that He sent Peter (Acts 10) to bring the Gentiles into the salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ and these 2 groups were made one by the Holy Spirit, making all believers Christians.

Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."

As Christians, we must enthrone Jesus to be our King by obeying His word as His Royal decrees, so that He can impart truth to us.

John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

When we abide (total obedience) in His word we will know the truth. And when we have truth (the revelations of the mysteries and wisdom hidden in the word of God), we with be set free from addictions, lusts, fear, worries, bondages, lies, pride, deceptions and the love of money and the things of the world.

This is a precious promise of our Lord -  'Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice'

Brethren, if we abide in His word, we will know the truth and we will have this privilege of hearing the gentle voice of our loving Father.

Meanwhile, covetous preachers, pastors and televangelists who prophesy in His name and claimed that they always see and hear from the Lord are liars and deceivers. Do not fear them nor submit to their lies, distorted truth and heresies.

1Timothy 6:13-16 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

Brethren, when we keep His words He is indeed our Lord and King. So when He dwell within us, He can set up His kingdom within us so that He is truly the King of our lives and then we will be able to hear our loving Father's gentle voice.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him."
   
Rev 19:13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
