King of kings
will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is
Lord of lords and King of kings. —Revelation 17:14
Once dubbed “The King of Rock and Roll,” Elvis Presley is often called simply, “The King.” The enduring popularity of the singer from Mississippi spans
generations and cultures. More than 30 years after his death, sales of
Presley’s music, memorabilia, and licensing agreements generate
millions of dollars in annual income.
Whether the “kings” of this world are celebrities, athletes, crowned
heads, or tycoons, they come and go. Their influence may be immense and
their followers fanatically loyal, but it doesn’t last forever.
Bible, however, refers to Jesus Christ as the eternal King. Revelation
17 speaks prophetically of earthly kings who will fight to establish
their authority at the end of the ages. Biblical scholars have debated
the identities of these kings, but there is no mistake about the One
they cannot overpower: “These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb
will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and
those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful” (Rev. 17:14).
Jesus Christ the Lord is King, and He will reign forever. — David C. McCasland
The King of kings and Lord of lords,
Who reigns today within our heart,
Will one day bring His peace on earth—
A kingdom that will not depart. —Sper
There is no greater privilege than to be a subject of the King of kings.
