The Rebellion- A sinner saved by the grace of an infinite God, encouraging the body in the fight against the darkness.
About This Show
God in His perfect wisdom and Jesus in perfect obedience decided to leave us here for the time being but promised to return. Until then we are instructed to be a rebellion preparing for the Lord's final assault. Our fight is not with men but with dark spiritual forces (Eph 6:12). I know it sounds a little crazy, but God said it, not me. I hope this show glorifies God. I hope this show encourages the Body. I hope this show introduces you to the true living God if you have never met him. I will warn you though if you do meet him you will walk away different. Be blessed and enjoy!

The Rebellion Ep:6 The Children of God Part 4: Jesus the King of Kings!
Sep 1 17
This week on The Rebellion,
We are in the midst of our series the children of God. This is part four, Jesus the King of kings. So far we have established the infinite father, and we've looked at two of the roles of Jesus Christ as Savior and high priest. Last week we really drove home the idea of Him living eternally to intercede for us, as the second main role.
This will be the final roll of Jesus that we look at in this series. I understand the Jesus Christ has more than three roles in the Christian's walk but we're just going over fundamentals. We're trying to build a foundation so that as we progress past these things there are a few basic truths that we agree on. Because if we don't then it's just going to get worse from here. That being said let's get to it!
So at the beginning, I in jest said spoiler alert but in all reality that is what this role of Christ is. It gives us the ending up front. For a long-time, this was a difficult subject for me, The kingship of Christ. Maybe it's a little difficult for you.
See I have a deep-rooted, in the womb issue with authority. I don't like it. I do not like being told what to do. Not one bit, not an iota of any of my cells, and quickest way to get me to not do what you want me to do is to tell me to do it. As a red-blooded American, a patriot, a veteran, I hold my freedom and my democracy close to my heart. I don't know if anyone knows this, but 200 some-odd years ago around 1776 as a people, we put our stake in the ground we don't like kings.
As westerners, in general, it's a difficult idea to embrace because we are the literal antithesis of a monarchy. We don't like them. We don't think centralized power is a good thing. It has never worked out before!
And yet, before all of that, I am a Christian.
As a Christian, I am called to be submissive. I'm called to submit to all my authorities. Above and beyond all, I'm called to submit to the authority of Christ. Now you may be saying to yourself, man I am the best Christian ever. Last week when you were talking about struggling, I didn't even raise my hand. Maybe you are, and if that's the case I'm glad that you do not struggle.
Let me ask you a question though, have you ever broken the speed limit? Of course, I've broken the speed limit, but God never said anything about speed limits. No, but He did say obey the laws of the land. Therefore, you have usurped the authority of Christ.
Oh I know I know that's too harsh.
Did you ever speak back
