Jesus talks about His leadership

Jesus-Coming-Trumpet-e1324351057843-300x175I think that we get pretty absorbed into the servant leadership role that we see in Jesus’ life to the point that we stop understanding the power of His meekness.

As far back in the OT, far before He entered this world, it was declared what His purpose would be here on earth and what His role would be at the end of the world.

With those two leadership job descriptions in place, we see Jesus, a glimpse of Him before He even came into our world.

We understand the job description of His life here on earth pretty well I think.  So let me tell you His leadership role at the end of the world – He is given the ruling power and glory over all nations of the world, so that all people of every language must obey Him.  His power is eternal — it will never end — His government shall never fall.

This of course is confirmed in Revelation when we are introduced to the Lion of the tribe of Judah – we know Him as the Lamb.

This is something that should all Christians everywhere who are facing persecution should know.  The end has already been written – hence the expression, we are more than conquerors.  It is only for a time as we come before the world in meekness, yet in the power of the Lion who taught us how to serve until our time has come to join with Him and rule with Him.
