Kings and Priests Rev. 1:6
Israel was brought out of slavery in Exodus and God said to Moses,
“You shall be to Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.”(Exodus 19:6).
Rev. 5:9 says,
“You have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.”
Just like Israel was brought out of slavery and bondage in Egypt to be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation, Christ has rescued us from the jurisdiction of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of Light. Every child of God has been delivered from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are royalty: sons and daughters of the Living God (Col. 1:13, 1Peter 2:9).
If you are a child of God you have been rescued from the kingdom of darkness and given royal citizenship in God’s Kingdom. It is a Kingdom ruled by the Lord Jesus Christ (Col. 1:13). This citizenship comes with glorious privileges. Through Christ we are heirs, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people. Christ rules and reigns over us and over this kingdom forever and ever.
Allegiance to God’s Kingdom.
The believer has allegiance to this Kingdom. Good citizenship is a virtue and obligation. The reign of Christ in the life of a believer brings obedience and “obedience,” is part of kingdom living. We show appreciation for the great work Christ has done by our obedience.
He reigns forever
To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Let all praise and honour, glory and adoration and all power be ascribed to Him for ever and ever and ever.
