The King Of The King Of Kings
by Wayne Blank
"then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him."
Jesus Christ is coming back to rule. His first coming was a matter of Him being subject to the world. His second coming will mark a new age in which the world will be subject to Him. Jesus Christ will be an absolute King, not, for example, a mere President or Prime Minister who is chosen by, and subject to, other people. Presidents and Prime Ministers don't rule, they are merely given the task of obeying the will of those they govern (that applies even to dictators who require at least the support of their army to stay in office). King Jesus, the Christ, will be subject to the will of no man (see The Coming World Dictator), but He too will have a King. As the Messiah himself plainly stated, the Son of God is not equal to God.
"I go unto the Father: for My Father is greater than I" (John 14:28 KJV)
The entire purpose of the Christ's coming is to prepare the way for God's coming, "then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him."
"Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign, till He hath put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."
The coming of God will be the defining event of the Kingdom of God.
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the Throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful." (Revelation 21:1-5 KJV)
