Emphasizing Jesus Role as Reigning King page 277 3 & 4
In ANCIENT TIMES . . .
must ACTIVIETY AND FAN FAIR was done in the CARINATION of kings, and they were given GREAT HONOR AND LOYALTY by the people
Why because a KING of a nation had ultimate POWER AND RULERSHIP.
What a KING said or WANTED done . . there were NO questions asked.
The MORE LOYALTY that the people had for their KING the greater his kingdom would become.
And If the KING also had Jehovah's DIVINE BACKING, there was nothing he could NOT ACCOMPLISH.
Although EARTHLY KINGS . . . lived and died . . .
they were also IMPERFECT and MADE MISTAKES.
But, . . . Jehovah God . .
. would though . . . .
ESTABLISH a RULERSHIP with a PERFECT KING who would live forever AND NEVER DIE.
This INFORMATION was revived to Mary the EARTHLY MOTHER of the future king.
Open your bible to Luke 1: 30 - 33. and Lets see how this was told to her.
Even BEFORE this conversation between the angel and Mary took place it had be PROPHECY years ago about this KINGSHIP.
Opens bibles to Daniel 7: 13, ; 14.
When Jesus was on EARTH and BEFORE his death . . . it was FIRMLY established by his disciples that he was the Son of God . .
. and would be the KING of God's kingdom.
That is why the people said . .
at Luke 19: 38
" BLESSED IS THE ONE COMING AS THE KING . . .IN JEHOVAH'S NAME.
Jehovah has GREAT LOVE for his son, who OFFERED HIMSELF up to die a PAINFUL AND SHAMEFUL death, on a torture stake.
This was NOT . . . JUST ANOTHER DEATH.
. . . .
God Son DIED in behalf of mankind.
So ACTIVE FAITH and BELIEF in the LIFE AND DEATH of God's Son would divide those whose would RECEIVE everlasting LIFE and those who would not.
As PREACHERS AND TEACHERS of God's word . . .it IMPORTANT That we BUILD appreciation TO THOSE WE TALK TO.
. . for what Jesus' LIFE AND RULERSHIP truly means for mankind.
And it will REFLECT in the way a person lives their lives.
To BEGIN with . .
. OUR OWN WAY OF LIFE . . .
shows whether we REALLY BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is King and we are WILLINGLY submit to his rulership.
Lets look at an EXAMPLE of what our way of life should be FREE OF :
Galatians 5: 16 - 21
Our way of life has to be FREE of the works of the FLESH. . . .
Jesus EXPECTS his subject . . . to CONQUER the will of the flesh. And not let it CONTROL YOU .
. . You can not BLAME everything you do or don't do on the Devil.
You have to LEARN to control on your actions.
Because you NO LONGER belong to yourself but you belong to Jehovah.
So . . . there are things that Jehovah REQUIRES OF US, that is son Jesus Christ said MUST HAPPEN by means of his subjects.
And that is SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS.
Why . . . BECAUSE it leads right into the DESTRUCTION of this world and brings for a new one.
Think about this . .
If you KNEW for a FACT that Next Monday . .
. would be the END of this system of things, would ANYTHING CHANGE about the way you PREACH the good new. . . . WOULD YOU PUT IN MORE TIME AND QUALITY IN YOUR MINISTRY.
If you said YES . . . you need to MAKE that change now .
. . simple because YOUR LIFE is connected with PREACHING AND TEACHING the good news to others. . . and you don't want to LOSE your life.
Is anything HOLDING YOU BACK. . . from during your best for Jehovah, in the MINISTRY.
If you want to CHANGE and you are not sure how to get it started.
Two things you should do
1.PRAY TO JEHOVAH
2.SPEAK your Book Study Conductor, and ask him for his assistance to help you accomplish more in the ministry. .
.. THAT'S WHY THE ELDER BODY IS HERE . . . FOR YOU.
Our KING Jesus Christ . . . started while on earth where we SHOULD FOCUS our attention, and what is MOST IMPORTANT.
At Matthews 6: 19 - 34
Jesus EMPHASIZED at verse 33. . . that our PRIORITY IN LIFE. . .
is first God's kingdom.
Putting the KINGDOM FIRST balance a person's life. .
Although at times we MAY FEEL that our lives are FALLING APART around us.
When we have problems at WORK, problems at school, problems with our spouse, problems with our kids, problems with money, problems, problems, problems, and what comes with those problems is PAIN AND ANXIETIES.
But putting God's kingdom first is a blessing from Jehovah and according to Proverbs 10: 22 . . .
" THE BLESSING OF JEHOVAH ---- THAT IS WHAT MAKES RICH, AND HE ADDS NO PAIN WITH IT. "
What a WONDERFUL God, Jehovah is . . . And THROUGH his Son our King.
. . many MORE BLESSING are in store.
So let us ALWAYS CONTINUE to put faith, and follower the direction of our King throughout all ETERNITY.
