A KING OF PEACE
So what does it look like when Jesus finally gets to be the King? The answer is in the book of Revelation.
In Revelation, we see that He elevates, honors, and rewards those who love Him. He shares everything He has and everything He is with His people.
He also wages war against those who want to destroy His people. He judges the enemy and openly executes His judgment as the Righteous Judge.
There are no insiders. There are no outsiders. There are no limits to God’s mercy and love. All His people have VIP status and total access to the King.
He rules and reigns over His people and even over the environment itself. How He rules is through peace. Peace is when Jesus had dominion – He rules and reigns over something. That – not absence of conflict – is true peace.
Jesus is unlike any King this world has ever seen. He does not reign through brute force and political manipulation. He rules and reigns through peace. He’s so good.
Do you need peace in your marriage, your family, relationships, job, health, mind, or finances? Wherever you need peace, give Jesus dominion over that place. Invite Him in to rule and reign. Make Him the King over that place and watch as all the above starts to flood your life.
They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it. – 1 Peter 3:11
While you’re at it, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for Jesus to have dominion over His holy city and His chosen people – our brothers and sisters who missed Him the first time. There is a special blessing in this, so go after it. Peace is yours if you want it. Share it with Jerusalem as the King is coming soon.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper. – Psalm 122:6

TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace is Me, ruling over your heart and your life. I Am the Prince of Peace. Give Me dominion over what troubles you and watch My Kingdom come and My will be done in that place.
