Kingdom of Priests: The Majesty and Grace of Jesus Christ

The Majesty and Grace of Jesus Christ

The Majesty and Grace of Jesus Christ

Majesty and Grace

In Psalm 45:1-6, it declares:

1 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.

4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

This conversation may have come from David, captain over Israel, as written in this Psalm, but David was surely speaking in the spirit (inspired) from the Word of the God, the King of kings.

Bold Claim… Yes!

I make this claim because there certainly is a conversation going on in the verses above, and this conversation is between God and God. To begin, the writer says His heart or His mind is intended on writing about something very good, a good matter.

He goes on to say, He will speak of things concerning the King. His mouth and tongue is as the pen of a writer ready to write. Beautiful literature thus far.

God begins to tell the person (He is in conversation with) that “the Person” is more beautiful than the children of men, and that grace was poured into His lips and therefore God has blessed Him for ever for His grace.

The One who is fairer than the children men is told to gird His sword from His thigh, as to prepare for war and battle. He is also called the most Mighty, full of glory, full of majesty. These are words one speaks towards Royalty, towards a King. “Your Grace, Your Majesty.”

…the Father is Speaking to the Son, Jesus Christ

God, is touching or speaking about the King, and commands the King to ride prosperously in His majesty because He is full of truth and righteousness. Still with all of this, the King has a glowing unmeasurable level of meekness.

Oh, how is it that such a powerful Being can be so soft, so gentle, courteous, indulgent, and still have the strength to do amazingly awesome things? It is clarified in verse six, because this is a conversation between God and God.

We’d accurately characterize the conversation today as the Father speaking to the Son (Jesus Christ).

He says, Your Throne, referring to the Son as God, is forever and ever; and the Sceptre of Your Kingdom is a right or a righteous sceptre. Sceptre is a staff symbolizing a ruler, who rules in sovereignty.

A “metric” ruler measures, and a King is the measure or standard of His Kingdom. Everyone has to measure up to the King. this is why the king of a land is called the ruler.

Remember what the first-man Adam was given? Dominion, which is sovereignty or sole rulership, and unfortunate to him, and us today, we lost it. The Last-Man Adam, Jesus the Messiah, did not fail, but succeeded and the sceptre was awarded to Him, and us through Him, forever and ever.

We Witnessed Jesus Christ Do Everything Adam was Empowered to Do

Everything we witness Jesus Christ accomplish and do in the earth is what Adam was empowered to do, but didn’t. This is a powerful statement, everything we witness Jesus Christ do when He visited the earth as a human, is what Adam was empowered to do also, but didn’t.

Just so we are on the same page as far as the conversation being between God and God, look at verse seven (Psalm 45).

7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

The King Jesus loves righteousness and hates evil, therefore (or because of this), “God, your God,” has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your brothers. This verse answers why Jesus the Messiah is the King of kings.

Jesus Christ is Ranked Above…

Jesus Christ has been anointed King above all the kings in the earth. God has a God, who has anointed Him King over all. This is truly powerful.

First of all, we were allowed into a conversation Jesus Christ had with the Father. How amazing and surreal is that?

Second, we know exactly why Jesus Christ, the Son, is ranked above us (as it pertains to earthly rule), it is because He loves righteousness and hates evil and succeeded in overthrowing or subduing evil and the evil one.

Bless the Mighty God in Jesus name for His Word and mercy. To His Grace and His Majesty.
