Kingdom of God Jesus' Authority Jesus' Preeminence

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:15 ; Hebrews 1:8

Author: Amir Tsarfati


"Coronation fever is beginning to die down here in London. I must admit, it was quite a spectacular event. So much history. So much tradition. So much pomp. The world was drawn into this ceremony that placed a crown on the head of King Charles III. But as I watched, I couldn’t help but think of the future ..."

"A day is soon coming when there will be another coronation. When the crown is placed on the King’s head, it will not just be the symbol of His authority over one nation. Instead, this person will be crowned as King of all kings. Think of the pageantry of Charles’s coronation. Now picture in your mind what we will see as we watch our King, Jesus, take His rightful seat on His throne in Jerusalem! I can barely imagine it. And I know that whatever I see in my mind will pale against the actual event. What a day that will be!" - Amir Tsarfati

"For, At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords" (1 Timothy 6:15, NLT).

"But of the Son he says, 'Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom'" (1 Timothy 1:8, ESV).

Rejecting Jesus' Authority

Scripture: Proverbs 28:25 ; Jeremiah 17:7

Author: Shane Waldron


What should have been a routine traffic stop escalated into so much more. A 65-year-old woman named Debra Hamil was pulled over by a police officer in Oklahoma for a broken tail light. You can see on the video that the officer is respectful and cordial. But when he gives her the $80 ticket, she refuses to sign it. She doesn’t think she deserves to pay $80 for something that she can easily fix (even though she admits her tail light has been broken for six months). 

When the officer asks her to step out of the car, she swears at him, rolls up her window, and drives away. So the cop gets in his car and pursues her. He was on a mission to enforce the law. And nothing was going to keep him from accomplishing his mission.

So now we’re in a police chase. She ends up pulling over, but again she refuses to get out of the car. So he pulls her out. She kicks him. And so he tases her. Then he arrests her and takes her to jail. She is charged with assaulting a police officer, which is a felony

The police officer accomplished his mission, but he wasn’t happy about it. Debra Hamil ended up in a police chase, then she was tased, then she was arrested, and finally she was charged with a felony.  All over an $80 fine for a broken tail light. Her actions illustrate an important principle; things can only go from bad to worse when we reject authority.


Before I became a Christian, I hated the idea of a big authority figure in the sky telling me what to do. I didn’t want a God like that. Maybe that was true you, as well. And even though I am now a Christian, there are still ways I reject Jesus’ authority.  You and I reject him with every sin we commit. 

Similar to the police officer, Jesus is on a mission. But his mission involves more than just enforcing the law. Jesus is on a mission to save us from the consequences of our rebellion. We can either cooperate and reap the benefits of submitting to his will for our lives, or we can resist and make life much harder than it needs to be. 

"An arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will prosper" (Proverbs 28:25). 

"But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him" (Jeremiah 17:7). 

Why Jesus Is Better Than Santa

 Why Jesus is Better Than Santa Claus:

 Santa lives at the North Pole...
     JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh...
     JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year...
     JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies...
     JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited...
     JESUS stands at your door and knocks, and then enters your heart when invited.
You have to wait in line to see Santa...
     JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap...
     JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, what's your name?"...
     JESUS knew our name before we were born.  Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly...
     JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO...
    JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says "You better not cry"...
     JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you."
Santa's little helpers make toys...
    JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle but...
    JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree...
     JESUS became our gift and died on a tree...the cross.


We need to put Christ back in CHRISTmas; Jesus is still the reason for the season.
