The coming King!

Was there ever a time when someone, perhaps your teacher or father, asked you to do something for him while he went away somewhere? But during his absence you got involved in other things! How surprised and ashamed you were when he suddenly returned and you had not done as you had been told!

How very surprised and ashamed many will be on the day the Lord Jesus Christ returns if they haven't been doing as He told them to!

Jesus used a parable to teach us more about this great event. He told of "a man of noble birth" who went to a distant country to be officially appointed king before returning to reign. While he was away "his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, 'We don't want this man to be our king!'" 1*.

Many are saying something like that about the Lord Jesus Christ in His absence? But, He is soon to return as the great King of all kings. 2*.

While Jesus was here on earth He claimed to be equal with God, 3*. and to be the only One who could get sinners to Heaven and God. 4*. He also told in advance that He would die and rise again after three days just as the prophets had said. His death would be for our sins so that He would be able to forgive those who would put their trust in Him. 5*.

Without realilsing it, the message many are sending to God today about Jesus is - "We don't want this man to be our King!" They do not accept that Jesus is the only Priest and Saviour that He claimed to be! 6*. Instead they have chosen other priests and saviours for their souls!

How terrible for those who continue to rebel against King Jesus and His Word during His absence.

In His parable Jesus made it clear that there will be no escape for them when the King returns to judge those who refused to obey Him.

"Bring them here and kill them in front of Me," the king ordered. 7*.

Jesus, the coming King, will soon reappear and He has warned already that many people are to be destroyed at His coming! 8*.

In the parable, during the king's absence, one of his own servants had behaved in an unfaithful and selfish way. He had not cared about his master's business that he had been trusted with. I think this could be a picture of a true Christian who knows and trusts the great King and who believes He will surely return. But while waiting for the returning King he is not interested in making good use of the Gospel that he has been entrusted with. Instead of sharing the good news with others he has simply received it for himself and then hidden it away so that no one else can benefit from it! Jesus described this servant as a "wicked servant" and he was not given any "rewards" for service for his master, or entrusted with any special responsibilities in the king's kingdom. 9*.

Christian, when Jesus returns He will reward those who faithfully preached His Gospel to others. 10*.

Read about the coming King Luke chapter 19, verses 11-27.
