KING OVER ALL
All kings have derived authority; only one King, the great God of heaven, is absolute in power and righteousness. This psalm not only exalts and worships God as King, but foreshadows Jesus as the coming King.
1 TIMOTHY 6:13-15 AMP I solemnly charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and [in the presence] of Christ Jesus, who made the good confession [in His testimony] before Pontius Pilate, to keep all His precepts without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about in His own time--He who is the blessed and only Sovereign [the absolute Ruler], the King of those who reign as kings and Lord of those who rule as Lords, (emphasis mine )
He reigns over the people;
LUKE 1:32-33 AMP He will be great and eminent and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob (Israel) forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end.” (emphasis mine )
He chooses an inheritance for them;
EPHESIANS 1:11-12 AMP In Him also we have received an inheritance [a destiny--we were claimed by God as His own], having been predestined (chosen, appointed beforehand) according to the purpose of Him who works everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ [who first put our confidence in Him as our Lord and Savior] would exist to the praise of His glory.(emphasis mine)
Was exalted by God;
PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11 AMP For this reason also [because He obeyed and so completely humbled Himself], God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father. (emphasis mine)
And ascended into heaven, where he is seated once again on his holy throne.
Acts of the Apostles 2:33 NLT Now he is exalted to the place of highest honor in heaven, at God’s right hand. And the Father, as he had promised, gave him the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us, just as you see and hear today. (emphasis mine)
Through King Jesus, victory is promised for God’s people;
PSALM 47:3 AMP He subdues peoples under us And nations under our feet. (emphasis mine)
The church longs for the day when Jesus will return — a day when he will display all his glory. He will sit on his throne in all heavenly glory with all the nations gathered before him. And he will say to his people;
MATTHEW 25:34 AMP “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father [you favored of God, appointed to eternal salvation], inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
