WHO IS THIS KING OF GLORY?

Psalm 24:7-10 “Lift up your heads, O gates!  And be lifted up, O ancient doors ,that the King of glory may come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!  Lift up your heads, O gates!  And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory!”

The thought of having a king in the United States, conjures up ideas of the American Revolution and all the blood that was shed to free our nation from the tyrannical rule of a sovereign.  In ancient days, a king would often go into battle with his people.  He would fight alongside them and would face serious injury and even death to defend them.  He wasn’t afraid to stand by his men and protect them as well as his country.  To do this he had to be physically strong and a great warrior.  He earned his people’s respect.  When he returned from war, the gates would open and he would be welcomed by cheers and honor for his bravery.

Today kings rule from the comfort of their palaces and do most of their fighting through their advisors and foreign ambassadors.  Their lives are filled with all the creature comforts befitting a king.

My King is Jesus and He was foretold in the Old Testament by the Psalmist as the King of Glory.  Jesus came to the world as a simple man, born of a lowly virgin, but His Father is the almighty God.  He proved His love for His people by waging war against sin and defeating the devil in the greatest battle of all times.  He suffered a horrendous death at my expense, but He overcame death on the third day as He came back to life.  He continues to fight for me and with me  and has defended me against all the evil that still exists in this world. 

He protects me daily with the armor of His salvation and is constantly at my side as I face adversity, fear and anxiety.  He is also with me in the good times – encouraging me, lifting me up and spurring me on.

 

 

Who is this King of glory?  He is my Lord and Savior, Jesus, Christ. 

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
