SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2
Scripture: Mark 1:1
Matthew 1:1 declares Jesus as the Son of David. Mark 1:1 says, “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” Isn’t it interesting that Matthew starts out with Jesus as the Son of David, and Mark starts out with Jesus as the Son of God. As the Son of God, He is our Savior. In Matthew, He is the Son of David, which means a Judge/Warrior. But in Mark, He is our Savior. In Matthew, He is the King and in Mark, He is the Savior. Is Jesus both King and Savior to us? If He is, then we can rapidly get ready for what is coming. No matter what comes, we can face it not only as those who are saved by the Blood, but as those who are equipped to throw five smooth stones and can change things through prayer. I am pretty sure Jesus is a Savior to many more people than He is the acknowledged Judge and King. As King David represented the Lord of Hosts and killed Goliath, can we represent the God of War? How many Goliaths have we prayed into termination? Revelation 6:8 records Jesus killing one fourth of earth’s population- can you represent Jesus during this period?
