KING JESUS for the Gentile
When the Jews (as a nation) rejected Christ Jesus as their Messiah, coming King (see King Jesus for the Jews). God, the Lord Jesus called the Jewish Scourge (Saul of Tarsus) of all Jews who were becoming Christians (acts 11:26), persecuting them, putting them into jail and even putting them to death. SAUL, a Pharisee, was a leader within the Jewish Religion. After Saul’s conversion (Acts 9:1-6) he tried to reach his fellow Jews with the gospel (1 Cor 15:1-4) but his ministry was limited and the religious leaders sought to kill him, so he turned to reaching out to the gentile world (Acts 13:46). This was all God’s plan to open the way of salvation to the Gentile World.
Acts 9:15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
Acts 13:46-47 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
Paul, the apostle to the gentiles (Romans 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office) only twice mentions the Lord Jesus Christ as KING. His message to Gentiles is that we are HEIRS, JOINT HEIRS with Christ.
1 Timothy 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Yes, Christ Jesus will rule and reign here on earth from Jerusalem during the millennium. He will be King of the Jews and we, believers in His death, burial and resurrection (and ascension into heaven and soon coming again) will reign with Him as JOINT HEIRS. AMEN!
