Ruler Of The Kings Of The Earth.
Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth (Revelation 1:5 NKJV)
Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. (Philippians 3:21 NKJV)
Who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him. (1 Peter 3:22 NKJV
Everyone who worships idols is put to shame; all the gods bow down before the Lord. Psalm 97:7
Jesus Christ our redeemer is so amazingly powerful that it is mind boggling and exciting to those who have understood His great power, dominion and supremacy. He is ruler over the kings and gods of the earth. All the gods bow down before Him in great respect. They only pretend to man and deceive man. They respect Him that is why they obey Him and His anointed servants and tremble with fear. They fear, respect and must obey Jesus.
One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Acts 19:15
The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching–and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” Mark 1:7
But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” Luke 10:20
Demons, idols, powers or gods cannot stand His pure and righteous presence. They believe in God and tremble with fear. Some men refuse to believe in God and respect God but demons believe in only one God. They know that they are not gods but love to pretend to be gods in order to catch the rebellious God rejecters and haters. Only a thief can catch a thief. Satan is the examiner, tester, tempter, destroyer and adversary and he uses idols, demons or gods to do his dirty work. He is that chief thief that exists to catch smaller thieves. His own work is to catch thieves and our own work is to resist Him in the battle of truth and faith. If you refuse to put on the white garment of the word of God, he will catch you but God’s mercy triumphs over mercy if we don’t reject God’s mercy.
You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. James 2:19
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18
Everything in creation is subject to Christ and He is very high, very holy and very exalted in power, supremacy and excellence. Angels, authorities, principalities and powers have been made subject to Him and are subject to Him.
He has power to subdue all things to Himself and all authority or power in heaven and earth has been made subject to Him. All and every power belongs to Jesus and He uses them according to His purpose. Those who worship idols have never understood that there is only one God and idols are make believe and stand for things that do not exist.
So then, about eating the food offered to idols: we know that an idol stands for something that does not really exist; we know that there is only the one God. 1 Corinthians 8:4
Idols are just fantasies and imaginations created by the mind of man because man was made for worship. Immediately man rejected the Lordship of His creator man started lusting after other husbands and spirit beings to act as the male.
Man started looking for spirit providers, protectors, and healers to act as their spiritual husbands just like a woman who rejects her husband and starts molding male images and lusting after them. Our creator is our only father and husband – no one else will do and no one else can take His place and compete with Him. Not even worthless, powerless, lifeless, cunning, deceptive idols.
A spirit can transform to be male or female so even the goddesses are spirits that transform as females but they are actually the husband of their worshippers.
Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come. Romans 5:14
There is futility in idol worship because those so called gods and goddesses are not gods at all. They are just spirits operating under the canopy of death, darkness and deception to destroy man. When Adam and Eve sinned, death started ruling as the god of this world through deception. It was God that decreed that death sentence and the same God has reversed that sentence by sending Jesus to die in our place and defeat death.
Why then do people still cling to death and worship death, darkness and deception through idols? God has set us free from the worship and dominion of those weak and powerless spirits. This good news must be proclaimed and announced to the whole world. Man has been set free from the slavery, abomination, deception and wickedness of idol worship. Jesus is Lord of the living and dead.
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Revelation 1:18
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” Revelations 5:13
Every creature in heaven, on earth and under the earth sang and praised God the Father and Jesus Christ in Revelations 5:13. They gave Him glory and power but humans go and worship those disgusting creatures that know they are not gods because of spiritual laziness and quick fix . The only thing that those gods want is human blood and they will work like magic for their worshippers. It is in-fact, magic – the more you look the less you see. However, there is a day of reckoning when all men will appear before God and confess that He alone is God.
In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
There is a judgment day for those who prefer idols and human blood and sacrifice to God and the sacrifice and blood of Jesus. When you reject the sacrifice and blood of Jesus all that remains is the sacrifice and blood of humans. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins and life is in the blood. idols are quick to destroy and ask for human blood because they did no create a thing. God only demands faith in His mercy that came through the sacrifice and blood of Jesus, love, holiness and obedience.
Idols, death, gods, powers and principalities have been defeated and Jesus has the key of life, death and hell. He is the only life giver and source of life, mercy and grace. May we all embrace Him as the only life giver.
