You are Royalty

You are Royalty

When I see Jesus, I see the King of kings, a King with kind eyes and a gentle smile, yet still the King. Everything is under His authority, when He walks into a room, everything makes room for Him. His words few, but powerful, “I am the King of kings, you are My child. You are royalty.”

I whisper back in shock, “I am royalty? Even after all the mistakes I have made?” With loving kindness He says, “Yes you are royalty.”

 

The Battlefield.

You are royalty?

Yes I am

Who are your parents?

Where do you come from?

Where is your royal robe?

Where do you live?

Where is your wealth? What is your net-worth?

Why do you look so “normal”?

 

I am royalty.

My robe is in my Father’s house.

My wealth Is where my heart is, I have given my heart to my Lord, Jesus Christ.

The earth is filled with His possessions, I lack nothing.

I may look “normal” yet even though I am in the world,  I am not of the world,

I have been adapted into the family of God through Christ.

Jesus Christ has restored me by washing me with His precious blood, He has saved me and rescued me from sin.

 

His ways are not like our ways.

He stretches His hand and says, “I am the King of kings and the Lord of lords and you are My child therefore you are royalty.”

I accept and I receive this truth from My savior. Immediately, I see a picture of Christ with a towel wrapped around His waist ready to wash the disciple’s feet. Royalty does come with the responsibility of serving others. His ways are indeed not like our ways… still, I am royalty.

God’ Heart

David, a man after God’s own heart…

But what is God’s heart? God desires to dwell with His people.

Psalm 132:8  

Arise, O LORD, and go to your resting place, You and the ark of your might.

 1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

 I will dwell among them.

I will write My laws in their hearts.

I will pour out My Spirit among all flesh.

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

 Christ wants to come and eat with you, and live in you. This is the heart of God!

The Creator of the universe wants to come have a relationship with me! The imperfect me, the misunderstood me, with all of my flaws He still waits for me to accept His invitation. An invitation of a deeper relationship with Him to know as I am known… deep calling upon deep. It amazes me every time I think of it.

What is man that You oh Lord are mindful of Him.

 Revelation 21:3

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

 Will you accept this invitation?

I accept His invitation.

Selah.

The Grand wedding and the Eternal union!

The plan:

 He gave gifts to men…

LOVE is the mandate;

The goal is the union between two lovers – the bride and the Groom! Christ and the church. Christ gave gifts to men so that the church (His bride) would be built up in preparation for an eternal union, a marriage.

 

Oh what a beautiful bride

Isn’t she lovely?! She is without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, she is holy!

0h but hang on! She looks different, has she always looked like that? What a mysterious thing! The law meets grace, the new and the old covenant culminate, and it is just beautiful! Christ did not come to do away with the law but to fulfil it.

 

Rev 21:11-14

…Her brilliance was like a very costly stone, as a stone of crystal-clear jasper. It had a great and high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names were written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. There were three gates on the east and three gates on the north and three gates on the south and three gates on the west. And the wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 

The Eternal union 

 Rev 21:3

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

 God hates divorce and this union is eternal. Malachi 2:16

 Ephesians 5:13

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”
