Born into Royalty

Verse of the Month

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Messiah, the Lord."  Luke 2:11 

December 22nd – 31st  

Born into Royalty 

Scripture Reading: Luke 2:1-20 

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior was born in the flesh from the royal line of King David. He was born in the region of Judea, which is the promised land through the blessings of Abraham. Jesus is the Son of God, and King of all kings. 

"These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”  (Revelation 17:14 NKJV) 

Any which way you look at it, Jesus is of a royal bloodline in Spirit, soul and body. As God’s children, we are also born into a royal bloodline (when we accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior). We became part of the royal

priesthood and are to inherit the full blessings promised to Abraham. 

"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." 
(1 Peter 2:9 NKJV) 

If God left these promises in the flesh to only those directly born of the tribe of Judah (the line of Christ) or the Levites, only these people would be able to become kings and inherit the promises of God. I am thankful that through Jesus we are part of the royal priesthood and wait with joy to meet my royal family in Heaven. 

"The God of peace be with you." Romans 15:33
