Everyone, it seems, understood the priority of the Kingdom; Everyone except us. Abraham, Moses, Samuel, King David, the prophets, and Jesus knew it. Sadly, multitudes if believers today know little about the Kingdom, and even fewer understand their place and rights as Kingdom citizens.
Many of the Scriptures speak of and revere God as King of kings:
”I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession” (Ps. 2:6-8).
“Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates;lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty—he is the King of glory” (Ps. 24:7-10).
In these verses, King David praised and acknowledged the Lord God as the “King of glory” who will sit on His throne forever.
Psalm 45:6, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom” speaks of the throne of God, from where He “reigns over the nations” and extends a “scepter of justice.”
Although God gives man the opportunity to govern, ultimately He is the His Kingdom rules over all (Ps. 103:19).
