Hope for ALL Nations

The Gospel of the Kingdom announced by Jesus is a message of hope and joy for men and women in every nation .  After his resurrection, Jesus declared, “ All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me, therefore, go and make disciples of all nations !” As the  Lord over all things , he dispatched his disciples to proclaim his sovereignty and the good news of salvation to men and women in every nation, whether Jew or Gentile, rich or poor, male or female - [ World Globe photo by  Greg Rosenke  on  Unsplash ].

Sovereign over Kings

Because of his “faithful witness,” Jesus reigns supreme over the kings of the earth and even over his vilest enemies .  At the start of  Revelation , Jesus is designated the “ ruler over the kings of the earth ,” and in the present tense. His absolute sovereignty is based on his sacrificial death and resurrection, and  NOT  on any hereditary rights, economic or military might. He is the anointed king appointed by Yahweh to reign from the “ throne of David ” - [ Photo by Artem Beliaikin on Unsplash ].
