Our Glorious King

“The blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen” (I Timothy 6:15,16).

Our King, the Almighty Sovereign Creator of all things, willingly became “sin for us, who (Himself) knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (II Corinthians 5:21). He was “put to death in the flesh, but quickened [i.e., risen from the dead] by the Spirit,” having “once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God” (I Peter 3:18). The second verse of “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” speaks of such majestic truths. Of a surety, He is a glorious King.

Lives again our glorious King, Allelujah. Where, O death, is now thy sting? Allelujah. Dying once He all doth save, Allelujah. Where thy victory O grave? Allelujah.

In that great chapter proclaiming victory over death and the grave, the apostle Paul explained our eternal triumph over death purchased by Christ’s death and resurrection. “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? . . . Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 15:54,55,57).

The nation Israel was required to offer blood sacrifices continually, but “it was not possible” that those animal sacrifices could “take away sin” (Hebrews 10:4). Thankfully, this humanly hopeless dilemma was solved when “Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many” (Hebrews 9:28), thus “having obtained eternal redemption for us” (v.12).

Our glorious King became a perfect sacrifice and even now “saves (us) to the uttermost” (Hebrews 7:25). JDM
