He’s the Lord of Lords and King of Kings!

God’s final word is resurrection. What the world considers failure is simply an opportunity for God.

Jesus is probably the greatest example of this truth… The bible tells that Jesus was hated for no reason!

“But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.” (John 15:25)

He had come to earth to show the world God’s love and we hated Him so much we nailed Him to a cross and killed Him! But the end of the story wasn’t death, it was resurrection.  Not only was Jesus raised from the dead but He was given “the name above all names” and made to be “Lord of Lords and King of Kings”! Think of that- despised by the world to the point of being put to death, but raised up by God to the highest place!

So God took even death and brought life out of it. But He didn’t stop there, He brought everything to the next level- He made Jesus the vehicle to give eternal life to others!

“And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father who has given them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:28-30)

Jesus brought victory out of death, beauty out of ashes and eternal life to all who would trust in Him- talk about turning apparent failure into success!

 

 

Lord of Lords and King of Kings- Lyrics

by: Mike Helms

A long, long time ago
There was a man who fell in love
With a world who had turned it’s back
On His Father and His God

A long, long time ago
There was a man who hung on a cross
Who shed His blood for all of us
A long, long time ago

A long, long time ago
You’ve heard the story all before
There came a multitude of heavenly host
And they were all praisin’ the Lord!

A long, long time ago
A little baby boy was born
But something that you may not know
Is that His star still shines today –

Lord of Lords and Kings of Kings
Name above all other names

A long, long time ago
There came a prophet sent from God
The bible tells us that his name was John
He prepared the way of the Lord

A long, long time ago he brought
A message to a dying world
He told the people that the Messiah had come
He even said look in the crowds

For the Lord of Lords and Kings of Kings
Name above all other names

A long, long time ago
There was a lamb who was sacrificed
He bore our sins and He gave His life
A long, long time ago

A long, long time ago
There was a man who would change the world
There was a cross where His hands were nailed
And love came streaming out

From the Lord of Lords and King of Kings
Name above all other names
