Scripture: Revelation 5:8-10
In Revelation 5:8-10 we are told, “Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.” In verse 10 the word “reign” is the verb bas-il-yoo-o and what it says is that we become the action of the office of king. Our actions must reflect the biblical, judicial office of king. Mature saints are the verb, or the action, that demonstrates the Kingly Christ. What we pray, what we declare and what we decree are to be consistent with a King’s actions. Our actions become the demonstration of the Kingly Christ. Are we acting? Are we demonstrating? Are we showing? Are we proving? And are we praying covenant justice? If we are not, we should be.
