King Jesus, Come Quickly

Re:Verse passage – John 19:17-27 (day six) 

The sign was a deterrent. Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews was more than just an opportunity to stick it to the Jewish leaders, Pilate was also conveying a message, Caesar is King, and never forget it!

Although, more subtle and less dramatic, our contemporary culture is no different in its messaging:

Jesus has no dominion here; we have no king but Caesar.

Truth is, those in power today, (whether on the right or left) would find a way to crucify him all over again. They already do. He is too much a threat to their power and control.

One day, the resurrected Jesus will subject all earthly powers and authorities under his feet. There will be no ambiguity or confusion; King Jesus will be on the throne.
