Who is The King of Glory? As believers, we know him as Jesus Christ, the Son of God. In the book of Psalm, chapter twenty-four, King David asks the question, “Who is the King of Glory?” His answer, “The LORD of hosts, he is the King of Glory.”
In Psalm 24, King David declares, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Oh, today that we might give honor and glory unto God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit for their complete ownership of planet Earth and the “hosts” (you and me) therein. Man does not own planet earth, the stars, the moon, the sun, the planets, or the galaxy. All these, and so much more than our eyes can see, ALL belong to God; our Everlasting, Heavenly Father….King of Glory!
Typically, mankind respects and honors those who “own” land, buildings, and other structures. We often refer to one whom rents or leases out homes, apartments, or other structures as, “Landlords.” Did you see that? Land…Lords….Our God is the first, everlasting, and only true, authentic, bona-fide LANDLORD! He is LORD!
Yet, we tend to honor and respect earthly landlords more than we do the LANDLORD of the entire universe; God! Take Donald Trump for an example. We are all pretty familiar with who Mr. Trump is…Mr. Trump is well-known for his great wealth and economic status. Over the years of his lifetime, he has made good and sound investments that have yielded him outstanding rewards. He has invested his monies well, and because of it we know him today as a man of great wealth. But, even Mr. Trump will one day turn over all of his earthly wealth, possessions, and assets to another. Why? How? Because, Mr. Trump, as all humans, will one day face death and all the possessions and millions that he currently owns… will NOT follow him into the grave or into the next world of existence; whether that be Heaven or Hell; only he can answer that question. Sadly, all that a man might accumulate here on earth will one day cease. (For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole word, and lose his own soul. Luke 9:25 KJV).
Yet; even though we may esteem mighty men of wealth down here on earth…the earth and the fullness thereof and all that dwell therein…has been, is, and forever will be the LORD’S! Our God reigns! Our God reigns! “Who is the King of Glory?” The LORD, our LORD, strong and mighty…”(Psalm 24).
As believers called to be His witnesses, we shall never have to worry about the LORD turning over his possessions and assests…for He is an eternal; everlasting King and those of us who kneel down before Him in Faith shall never have to fear or be concerned over the continued, ever-lasting reign of our King…”Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be NO end…”(Isaiah 9:7).
Today, aren’t you glad that it is God who owns our planet and all that is therein? I know I am. Our planet and universe do not belong to a certain nationality, race, creed, or political party…it belongs to God…My life and my future are in the all mighty hand of God. All the questions of the entire universe are clearly known to my God…the King of Glory.
Won’t you join me today in Praise unto our King! Let’s Praise Him today for who He is…our King, our Everlasting Father, our Redeemer, our Salvation, our Mercy and Grace, our LORD…The King of Glory!
Remember God Loves You!
