Headline Reads,” Royalty Nailed to a Cross” April 3, 33 AD sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Historically royalty has been a birth right, a God calling, or an honor bestowed by man due to the ability to lead or conquer. Kings historically have been good and evil.

Today we explore the kingship of Jesus Christ. Born a king? Called by God? He was the conqueror of all time, past present and future. He accomplished more in one week than all the other kings could have accomplished together combining their achievements and the they spent on earth.

Last week standing at the foot of this old rugged cross I asked:

When he was on that cross:

“Where were the angels that announced his birth?”

“Where were the disciples and the multitudes that he taught?”

“Where was God the Father as he was abandoned on that cross?”

Time stood still as Royalty was nailed to a cross. The nails that were meant for me pierced his hands and feet. Praise was silenced to listen to the mocks of the predators. The battle seemed lost. The victim seemed to lose the quest. I know you are probably thinking, “Well he’ll be ressurected in three days,” but let’s not fast forward until we’ve examined what was accomplished on that cross. Here lies the greatest victory in history.

Pastor Builds Life Size Cross for sermon prop.

You’ll notice the purple we have on the life size cross this morning. What does it mean?  Was he a King?  Was he a warrior? Like Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”

Galatians 1:4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

 1 Tim. 6:15   Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

The Rest of the Story

 Rev. 4:1-2  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.(2)   And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

Beyond Human Thrones

 Isaiah 6:1   In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Royalty Revealed in Daniel’s Day

Daniel 7:9  I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

Worthiness of the King  

 

This week is Bluegrass Sunday with bluegrass worship.
