Kingdom · Psalm 103 · Sovereignty

psalm 103… an Easter perspective… part thirteen…

Just a couple more days to go… looking for the resurrected Christ… and we’ll be through our journey of Psalm 103

What will we see today…?

The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.
Psalm 103:19
The Lord Jesus… established His throne in heaven… 
through obedience to His Father…
And being found in human form, he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted
him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under earth…
Philippians 2:8-10 ESV
His Kingdom… rules over ALL…
those in heaven… all the unseen supernatural creatures…
those on earth… all living breathing beings on planet Earth…
those under the earth… all who have already passed from life to death…
Jesus’s rule is complete… perfect… preeminent…
The Lord Jesus… established His throne in heaven…
as the Lamb of God… the perfect sacrifice…
And every priest stands daily at his service,
offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins,
he sat down at the right hand of God…
Hebrews 10:11-12 ESV
Jesus… our perfect High Priest… was also the perfect sacrifice…
Perfect obedience…
led Him to the cross…
Unmerited death…
led Him to rise from the grave…
He now sits at the right hand of God…
The Lord Jesus… established His throne in heaven…
by being… the radiance of God’s glory… and nature…
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact
imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe
by the word of his power. After making purification for sins,
he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…
Hebrews 1:3 ESV
Jesus… the Word made flesh… that we might see His power lived out…
The Lord Jesus… WILL establish His throne forever…
when He returns… and fixes all things…
And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,
“Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom
of our God and the authority of his Christ have come,
for the accuser of the brothers has been thrown down,
who accuses them day and night before our God.
Revelation 12:10 ESV
The Revelation of Jesus… given to John…
proclaims a day to come… when all things will be set right…
the accuser… the enemy… defeated…
sin… death… sorrow… sickness… gone…
“… He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and death shall be no more, neither shall there be
mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away.”
And he who was seated on the throne said,
“Behold, I am making all things new.”
Also he said, “Write this down,
for these words are trustworthy and true.”
Revelation 21:4-5 ESV
Write it down… take note… don’t forget…
even if it doesn’t look like it just yet…
His throne is firmly established…
His Kingdom rule a certainty…
its fulfillment… still to come…
Lord… I praise You for Your obedience…
Your pure perfection… Your glorious representation of the Father…
Your Word of power… Fill me with confidence in Your Kingdom to come…
assured of Your place on the throne…
