Scripture: Revelation 5:9-10
Verses 9 and 10 say, “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.” Since reign, bas-il-yoo-o is the verb form of bos-il-yooce, the real question here is, are we the verb or are we not? Are we the action of the king or are we not? The real question Jesus is probably looking at and asking is, where is our Kingly action? Do we know how to swing a sword? Do we know how to bring a sword into the middle of our circumstance? Do we know how to bring a sword on the enemy? Do we know how to banish them? Do we know how to pray them into the grave? After twenty-five years of walking with Jesus the Judge, I can impart what has been learned through experience. Jesus drags us into aspects of ministry we would have never volunteered for. If we yield, we get to fulfill our call!
