Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Coffee Time with Jesus (Yeshua)
    Jesus: King of the Jews
    Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?
    For we have seen His star in the East
    and have come to worship Him.
    Matthew 2:2
    Julius Caesar had put King Herod on the throne; so when Caesar was killed, Herod was threatened and ran quickly to Rome to have the Senate appoint him as the king of the Jews. That not only put Herod over Jerusalem and the surrounding territories, but it also gave Herod authority over Jews everywhere. No wonder Herod was “troubled” (Matthew 2:3) when wise men came looking for a baby who had been born King of the Jews. No wonder Herod sent soldiers to Bethlehem to kill all babies two years and under (Matthew 2:16). Rome recognized Herod as the earthly king of the Jews, but the heavenly Father recognized Jesus as the eternal King of the Jews.
    Lord Jesus, not only do I recognize You as the King of the Jews and the King of my life, but I also recognize You as the King of the universe and the King of Heaven.
    Some men are made king because of their superior powers; others wait until their father dies before becoming king. Jesus was always King; and long before He ascends the throne of Israel in the coming millennium, He remains King of the Jews. Jesus was born with that title and lived with that title; and when He returns, all will recognize His title as King—King of the Jews. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Is He the reigning King on the throne of your heart?
    Even so, come Lord Jesus; rule my life today. Amen.
    Go Deeper: Psalm 89:1-10
    The King of the Jews wants to sit on the throne of your heart.
