Scripture: Revelation 1:5-6
Revelation 1:5-6 says, “And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first born from the dead, and the Ruler over the kings of the earth, to Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” We have been made both Kings and Priests. That means that we have two distinct areas of ministry to walk in. These are the same two that Jesus walked in while He was on the earth. These are the same two that are demonstrated in the book of Acts. The Kingly is the judicial side of Christ. The Priestly offers mercy and salvation. Both complement each other. Unfortunately, in the previous generation we see that the Priestly ministry has been emphasized to the detriment of the development of the Kingly. The fruit can be seen in the antichrist priorities of our ruling politicians and abominable rulings of our judges. This has to change and it has to change now! By not growing and developing the Judicial Christ we are dishonoring what Jesus died for! And we are hindering our harvest. When the church fails to develop in the Kingly, we allow wickedness to proliferate. Psalm 12:8 is the fruit of a church that refuses to develop in the Judicial side of Christ. And it says, “The wicked prowl on every side when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” The Judicial Christ confronts and stops wickedness before it can overtake a city or a nation. Knowing the Judicial Christ allows us to arrest evil before it destroys our harvest. Are we willing to honor the Judicial Christ by developing in this side of who the Lord is or will we continue to forfeit the nation?
