Matthew 2:2 (NIV), “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?”

This was the question asked by the Magi (wise men). Notice if you will the specific statement, “born King.” Jesus was born a King, He did not inherit this majesty from any man, nor was it passed on to Him from one generation to another, but His coronation was before time began. Even when Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate and was asked by him in John 18:37 (NIV), “‘You are a king, then!’…. Jesus answered, ‘You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born.’” If you open the doors of history, and look down the corridors of time, into the realm of eternity, you will see Jesus Christ for all time, for all eternity, crowned King of kings.
That is why we sing,
He is the King of Kings; He is the Lord of Lords,
His name is Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; O He is the King.
Here are a few verses of Scripture which declare the Kingship of Jesus:
Psalm 24:7 (NIV) King of glory.
Psalm 47:7 (NIV) King over all the earth.
Daniel 4:37 (NIV) King of heaven.
Isaiah 41:21 (KJV) King of Jacob
Matthew 2:2 (NIV) King of the Jews.
Mark 15:32 (KJV) King of Israel.
1 Timothy 1:17 (NIV) King of eternity and King of ages.
Hebrews 7:2 (NIV) King of Righteousness, King of peace.
Revelation 19:16 (INV) King of kings and Lord of lords.
Furthermore, Jesus is the King of life, your Majesty on high, your Royal Highness in every sense of the word.
Jesus, as your King, is merciful and just.
Jesus, as your King, is full of compassion.
Jesus, as your King, is full of grace and tender loving-kindness.
Jesus, as your King, gives you His signet ring and He clothes you with royal robes you don’t deserve.
Jesus, as your King, baptises you with the Holy Spirit.
Jesus, as your King, gives you His sword of the Spirit, the word of Truth and power.
Jesus, as your King, rules and reigns in power and authority.
Jesus, as your King, is strong to deliver and mighty to save.
Jesus, as your King, is powerful in battle.
Jesus, as your King, is merciful to you when you call upon Him.
Jesus, as your King, rules over sickness, death, hell and the grave.
Jesus, as your King, has lavished on you His forgiveness and pardon from sin.
Jesus, as your King, has treasures beyond compare.
Jesus, as your King, has given to you a place of honour at the wedding feast.
 
Not only is Jesus your King but He is also your High Priest, your Advocate, your Saviour and your Friend.
No one who meets Him, who spends time in the presence of King Jesus, will ever leave the same way. Just one touch from your King changes everything.
 
My friend, what an amazing, powerful verse of Scripture to bless and uplift you today, to find out, as the wise men did, that a King has been born. They asked the question in our text for today in Matthew 2:2 (NIV), “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?” Jesus Christ the Messiah was born as a King to rule and reign with love, mercy, grace, sovereignty and power, in the hearts of men. Today, will you make this King your King?
 
God bless you my friend, Matthew.
