King of Kings and Lord of Lords

"These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful" (Revelation 17:14).

There is coming a time--perhaps not too far in the future--when all the kings and other rulers of the world will "have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast" (v.13), the great humanistic world system of the last days, whose Satan-possessed leader will then have power "given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations" (13:7).

Only one opponent will remain, the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, against whom "The kings of the earth . . . take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us" (Psalm 2:2-3).

So they will proceed to "make war with the Lamb," but they will lose! At the final "appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. . . . He shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords" (I Timothy 6:14-15). He, who as God's sacrificial Lamb, has taken "away the sin of the world" (John 1:29), is greater than all kings and rulers.

No longer as the submissive Lamb before His shearers (Isaiah 53:7), but as the "Word of God," out of whose once-silent mouth now "goeth a sharp sword" with which He shall "smite the nations." He will have "on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" (Revelation 19:13,15,16).

Indeed, the kings and leaders of the whole world will think they can successfully "make war with the Lamb," but He "shall overcome them." In that great day that is coming, it will be far better to be with Him, than with them! HMM
