The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. (Psalm 29:10)
Last week we learned that the enemy was stripped of all the power he had when Christ raised from the dead. Our song was Death Was Arrested by North Point. The Lord our God sits on His throne over the flood; when every living creature was destroyed by the flood God was seated above the waters. God is enthroned as King forever. Today our song is Only King Forever by Elevation Worship. The link to the song is https://youtu.be/7ypXUd_vGmI or search for the song and artist on YouTube. God our firm foundation; the rock and solid ground for us to build our lives upon. Nations rise and fall; strong kingdoms now are being shaken. We forever trust in His name, the name of Jesus. We trust in that name alone. Almighty God is the Only King Forever; we lift His name up higher. The only King forevermore, He is victorious. Jesus is King He will rule and reign as King over all the earth. His everlasting throne was established by King David, Jesus distant family member. God promised that his throne would be everlasting throughout all generations. Whatever God says He does so Christ will claim the throne of David and from there He will govern the earth. When Jesus came they didn’t recognize Him as king the way they envisioned their King would be. Before rejecting Him completely He was welcomed into Jerusalem by those who thought He would finally rise up and defeat Rome. They kind of missed it; but I wonder are we still missing it? Christ is still King but how many of us honor Him the way we would honor a King? When someone is subject to the king they give their life in service to Him; to fulfill His desires and not their own. I am certain I could better serve Him as I’m sure most us could. The Only King Forever asks very little of us except that we give our hearts to Him and trust that everything we ever need ultimately comes from Him.
The Lord is good to all; having compassion on everything He has created. All His works give praise to Him and if we are faithful we will extol Him. We will highly praise Him and tell others of His kingdom so they will know about His glorious and mighty deeds. His kingdom is everlasting enduring through all generations. We can trust this because He is faithful in all that He does (Psalm 145:9-13). King Nebuchadnezzar took great pleasure in telling about the signs and wonders God had done for Him. This king of Babylon saw many miraculous signs so much that he knew God’s kingdom is eternal enduring for all generations (Daniel 4:2-3). The Lord reigns forever as our God; all generations may praise the Lord because He is in control (Psalm 146:10). Our King would be born from a virgin in Bethlehem; an angel said to her that she will conceive and give birth to a son, and call him Jesus. He will be called the Son of God and claim the throne of His father David, He will remain king over Israel forever and His kingdom will have no end (Luke 1:31-33). We have been commanded to flee from all wickedness, pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness and to fight the good fight of the faith. We are to keep these commands until the appearing of Christ our Only King Forever. Our God is King of kings and Lord of lords, the ultimate Ruler forever (1 Timothy 6:14-15). When the end comes satan will wage war against Christ but the Lamb will triumph because He is King; His called, chosen and faithful followers will be with Him (Revelation 17:14). We may identify our Only King Forever by His robe and thigh, His name is on them: King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16).

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
