Psalm Twenty-Four: His Name is Jesus

Posted: October 11, 2012 in Interlude (Psalms)

I have writer’s block this morning. This doesn’t happen often. I know what I want to get to- I’m just struggling to get there. In the meantime, I’m enjoying listening to Third Day’s “King of Glory.”

 

Many of us think of this king as a babe in a manger, perhaps a boy teaching in the temple. Some think of him as a young man, wandering around Galilee and calling a band of followers to himself. Others think of the condemned rebel hanging on the cross, forsaken by God.

He is all that..but so much more. Chew on this description:

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.” Rev. 19:11-16

That is our King of Glory- His name is Jesus!
