Our hymn book includes a good number of songs that speak concerning the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST. For instance: “REJOICE THE LORD IS KING.” “CROWN HIM WITH MANY CROWNS.” “ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS’ NAME.” In addition to that, the Bible has a lot to say about the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST because in the future He will reign as KING over all the earth, and then throughout all of eternity! Jesus Christ indeed is KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! Having said that, there have always been those who have rejected the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST! The Jews rejected His KINGSHIP when He was on earth, and many refuse to recognize His KINGSHIP in our modern times. However, the Bible teaches that the time will come when EVERY ONE IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH WILL RECOGNIZE THE KINGSHIP OF CHRIST AND BOW BEFORE HIM IN HOMAGE, WORSHIP AND SUBMISSION. Today is Palm Sunday in which we look back to THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY OF CHRIST INTO JERUSALEM nearly 2000 years ago when He presented Himself as the KING OF THE JEWS! CHRIST’S KINGSHIP was rejected by most of the Jews then and consequently He was crucified on the CROSS OF CALVARY just a few days later. This morning we shall focus on what the WORD OF GOD says about CHRIST THE KING with intent that we all will submit to HIS KINGSHIP in worship, praise and service. HAVE YOU SUBMITTED TO THE KINGSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST?
