But of the Son He says, “YOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM. Hebrews 1:8
A scepter is the ultimate symbol of authority, royalty, and sovereignty. That scepter is Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He sits on the throne of Gods Kingdom that will reign forever.
Yet even though our King walked this world, the world didn’t recognize him. Many rejected him because they were expecting a Mighty Warrior like King David. They were hoping for a fierce leader who would slaughter the Romans and set the Jewish people free once again.
But our King is the Prince of Peace, he accomplished something greater than just defeating one army. Jesus defeated Satan and all his demonic forces of evil on this Earth, including sin and death. Nobody except Christ could have ever accomplished this but our Messiah, Lord and Savior.
Jesus didn’t need to use force to defeat evil, he used truth and righteousness. And the evil forces that thought they were destroying the Son of God, was just fulfilling our ransom for our sins. Never again will sin and death hold us captive because Jesus rose from the grave to reign as King of King forevermore Amen!
