King of Kings!
Today’s Scripture Readings: Psalm 148:1-6 | Zechariah 12:1-13:9 | Revelation 19:1-21 | Proverbs 31:1-7
Today’s Scripture Focus: Revelation 19
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.  Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready . . .  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords (Revelation 19:6-7, 16 NIV).
In his first coming, Christ came humbly as a babe in a manger. When he comes again, he will come boldly in all his glory as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
In this, another of the great worship hymns of Revelation, all of creation worships as the King of Kings comes in his glory. Imagine what it will be like to hear all creation singing “Hallelujah” as John described it: “Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”
Since the fall of man in the garden, all of creation has been waiting in anxious anticipation of this day. The suffering and pain brought on by sin is not forgotten by God. It will be vindicated as Jesus comes in his glory. Those who have endured persecution look to this day of victory. Indeed, all of creation waits for his coming: the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
But they also celebrate the fact that the bride, the church of Jesus Christ (Christ-followers from all ages and all nations), has made herself ready. The Bride is ready. Cleansed and purified. Dressed in fine linen. Let the wedding celebration begin.
Rev. 19:7-8 (NIV) Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready,  Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”
It will be quite a celebration. Are you ready?
Lord God Almighty, you reign, Hallelujah! We worship you King of Kings and Lord of Lords and we look forward to your coming! Amen.
