JOHN THE REVELATOR SAW JESUS CHRIST CROWNED KING OF KINGS

THE GRANDEST MOMENT IN CHURCH HISTORY WILL BE WHEN THE DIVINE SON IS CROWNED “KING OF KINGS.” If there is one mystery in the entire Bible that is greater or more breathtaking than all the rest of truth, it is the eternal person of Jesus Christ. In Genesis chapter one, He is the going forth of all creation. We see this in these supernatural words, “And God said …” (Genesis 1:3). Seeing the mystery of those three words spoken nine times in Genesis chapter one clearly proves John’s statement, “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:3) Every time God speaks, it is in the person of the Eternal Word. The Father opened the door to Christ His Son when He said, “Let Us make man …” (Genesis 1:26). What a fabulous word God used when He said “US” in Holy Scripture to the overall revelation of the Bible.

To seek to remove the Son from the Revelation of God is to have nothing left but another religion. God Himself could not come down and redeem us because of His unapproachable Holiness, but He could send His Son in a hidden form of flesh. Preparation for this sacrifice began in the presence of the first human sin. An animal was slain by the Father to provide a blood offering and to cast a shadow toward the cross where the Son would be offered instead. A crimson cord of hope never faded until Divine blood dropped on Calvary’s hill.

In Genesis, He is the Word. In Exodus, He is Water from the Rock. In Leviticus, He is the future priest; while in Numbers, He is the sacrifice for all sin. Throughout the Bible, He never fades from the center of all Scripture. He is the mystery Word hidden in the written Word that shines time and time again throughout the First Testament. Solomon saw Him as the “Rose of Sharon and Lilly of the Valley.” (Song of Solomon 2:1) Isaiah actually saw Him as the “Son” (Isaiah 9:6) in one rare instance of the First Covenant. He was like the “Son” light of eternity waiting to shine in the brilliance of His incarnation. “And the Word was made flesh …” (John 1:14)

His coming to this earth set the world on its heels. Even as a baby in Bethlehem and Nazareth, kings tried to shake loose from His presence. Many babies died in the search for Him. When He began to preach, it turned the religious crowd of Judea into a frenzy. They could not kill Him until His time had come and then the Father planned it for them. All the terror of His presence among them had no kinship to the terror of His departure. His death split the timeframe of all ages. The entire world came to divide time by His short life and timely death.

If His life was impacting, His death was overwhelming. He did not just die; He walked through death as only God could do and left behind nothing but a whisper. Not only does He live, but every soul that belongs to Him in the redemption of His death now lives in His resurrection and cannot die. He is calling the chosen to live in His new life of holiness and He is preparing a Bride for His New Jerusalem. We often think of New Jerusalem being prepared for the Bride, but is it not better to think of the Bride being prepared for the city?

When the Eternal Son returned to His Father’s presence, the Father exalted Him. We may ask, “What can be an exalted position above Sonship, which He has eternally occupied?” Apostle Paul declared, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)

In Revelation John the Revelator saw the Lord in His post-resurrection glory. There are actually forty-one (41) descriptive words of His glory in thirteen verses of Revelation chapter one. Many beautiful descriptive words of Him are used, but one missing title that He is soon to be given is “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” This title is not really a title that represents His Father and Son relationship. He is the Father’s Only Begotten Son, High Priest of all redemption, Prince of all the kings of the earth. He sits at the Father’s right hand in all of Heaven’s glory. But, this future title is a relationship title with His Bride and His kings and priests of the Millennial reign of one thousand years. This name is a title that we the chosen company of the Sanctified that sit down with Him at the Marriage Supper will give Him. At the strategic moment in the midst of the greatest celebration of church history, all of this victorious multitude will come to sharp attention.

The Apostle Paul saw this day in the future when the greatest possible honor of human understanding would be attributed to Christ our Lord. The language reveals that this glory is future and relates to the government of the Millennial Kingdom. “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” (I Timothy 6:15-16) We are His subjects and it will be our honor to declare for all of Heaven and Earth to enjoy that He is indeed our “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” This must be one of the greatest honors of the chosen Bride of Christ. It is beautiful to know that when we are receiving our crowns, He will receive His prized crown as the King of the Millennium. He will be more than King; He will be King of Kings. He will be more than Lord; He will be Lord of Lords. All of our honor will be subject to His honor.

As soon as the Marriage Supper is complete and all the honors of that celestial event has been given; it’s time to possess the prize. The anointed Potentate moves from the Banquet Hall and He will mount the Great White Stallion. Calling His army of the rewarded saints, His kings and priests, He will descend to defeat the Armageddon army and take possession of Jerusalem and the Earth. John saw this moment himself and then showed us the thrilling drama of His descent, “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:11, 15-16)

The judgments of the seven years of Tribulation will have affected a purification of this world and we will begin a thousand years of holiness and peace. The King of Kings will reign from David’s Throne in Jerusalem and the chosen will be the joy of the whole earth. His kings and priests will rule in righteousness and all honors will be complete in Him. Serving in the Millennium is one of the highest honors offered His saints. It will be given to those chosen of the Father. Jesus said, “… but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.” (Matthew 20:23b)

    This truly uplifted me! I have been going through a tough couple of weeks, feeling like my pleas to folks around me have fallen on not just deaf ears, but on muddy rocks! I was praying this very day for the Lord to bring a restoration of my joy in Him, and you were His chosen means of dointg that. Thank you for your dogged faithfulness to the Truth!
    God bless you so “good,” you’ll fall asleep grinning!

  2. Ed Wood says:

    You know, I actually got chills when I read this article today – but they were the good kind that comes when something grand is about to happen. This is not to minimize the trials ahead, even for Christians prior to the Rapture or those who become so afterward, but to contemplate what God has ahead for those who have endured is which will be magnificent beyond imagining really stirs one’s soul.

    Along with all the great passages Pastor Joseph provided, I recommend that everyone look up Daniel 7:8-14 in which he gives us a very brief preview of what is to come, actually giving a summary of the end of Revelation 19 in two short verses.

    Won’t be long now!

  3. Karen Gray says:

    Just like Ed & Wes, I, too, got all excited after reading this inspiring message. It will be worth it all just to see Jesus & spend all eternity with Him. Mere words will not be able to describe being able to see Jesus being crowned King of Kings & Lord of Lords.
    I look forward to reading more on John the Revelator.

  4. Robert says:

    I wonder could the Rapture happen before this year ends, I will be off the net for a month or 2
    beginning in april around the 10 to 15 Moving to a different location, Google done me a disfavor
    it took away my favorites, I must have had 35, now I have only what I can remember, I can only remember about 6 and I must write them in, One of these days I wont need any of them,
    Come up hither, This earth as we have known will be over forever, The Kingdom age will be
    run Quite different, Dont you think, !!

  5. Bill Andrews says:

    Dear Pastor Chambers,
    Though I know you won’t, you could just retire after writing this commentary.
    What else could be more energizing to the true believer than this ? In a way it feels like it should be the last message given before the curtain falls and final tribulation events begin.
    I wish every soul on earth could read it. As long as there is still time please keep delivering Pastor !
    THANKS !

  6. Noreen says:

    An incredibly encouraging message. When we understand the impact of it, it is overwhelming. Praise God for His mercy on all of us. It is difficult to remain tenderhearted as our Lord wants us to be. That is part of the lesson. Christians everywhere in the world are suffering martyrdom for merely believing in Jesus and we in the USA have an opportunity to serve Him openly. Instead, people here do not count their blessings and instead blaspheme God and mock those who believe. Praise Our Lord Jesus Christ for His grace.

  7. TRUDY GAMBLE says:

    AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!! I TOO WAS NOT IN THE BEST OF SPIRITS UNTIL I READ THIS.NOTHING COMPARES TO OUR HEAVENLY HOME WITH OUR JESUS!! THERE’S NOTHING IN THIS WORLD FOR THE TRUE SAINTS THAT SATISFY OUR HEARTS AND SOULS IN THIS SIN SICK FALLEN WORLD ANY MORE!!! (LIKE) OUR LORD JESUS, IN HIS FULL POWER AND MAJESTY AND GLORY!!!! THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT FOR YOUR UNCTION IN OUR SOULS WITH THE HOLY WORD OF GOD.

  8. anna says:

    please go to —————————– to get the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Jesus said you will know the truth and the truth will set you free, Jesus said “I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life”…….

  9. Sean says:

    It’s truly a shame that for Joseph there is only one book in the Bible. Despite Jesus telling us that we have no need to worry about tomorrow, all you folks try so hard to read the mind of the Father.

  10. Ed Wood says:

    Just a note about the inference that for Pastor Joseph “that there is only one book in the Bible.”
    I think anyone who has visited this website, the fact is that Pastor Joseph often refers to many other books in his discourses is well known.

    I am personally glad to see his present series on Revelation because it is my observation that the most of organized religion in the Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic world really gives it scant attention. I’ve had people who have attended seminaries, both laity and clergy, tell me that prophecy is little covered.

  11. Ed Wood says:

    Here’s the rest of my Revelation comment:

    Since prophecy and, in particular, the book of Revelation is scarcely used to educate those attending much of the modern church today, I’m very glad we have men like Joseph Chambers to fill the vacuum!

    Carry on!

  12. jaimie says:

    Dear Pastor,

    What a wonderful tract, soon our blessed hope! I agree with a few others at this site, there seem for what ever reason to be a lot of muddy rocks.

    Sean: Is it not written; the Lord conceals a matter and it is in the heart of a King to search out such a matter. We want to know our Heavenly Fathers will, we ask in the name of his only begotten Son Jesus the Christ. Pastor Joseph shall be blessed for bringing these things to remembrance, in particular Revelation or to you the Apocalypse.

    God Bless
    jaimie

    p.s. please pray for my son Jason who is struggling thank you

  13. Rick Beltz says:

    John is NOT the revelator – Jesus Christ the Word is the one and only revelator, all through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. John is only the scribe who wrote it down. You are missing a major point here!

  14. Anthony says:

    The eternal person of Jesus Christ???? Not So!!! God became what he was not to shed His Own Blood for mankind, God will return from whence he came from to be all and all once that last enemy “death” is destroyed. Jesus will not be confounded to a body forever! He is the Almighty God, the Everlasting Father. Before Him there was no God Formed, nether shall there be after.

  15. RobiMac says:

    Bro Chambers, in your first paragraph, you said that the Father opened the door to His Son Christ when He said ‘Let us make man…’ Is this correct?

    Because the Bible says that In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d. John 1:1. I naturally assumed that Jesus, before we knew Him as Jesus, was the One who spoke those words. That’s what I always thought.
