King of Kings, Lord of Lords
The setting of the Book of Judges is at a time when there was no king in Israel. Devoid of leadership, we are told that every man did that which was right in his own eyes. The people had combined the worship of pagan gods with the worship of the Creator and because of that, things were not going well.
Today, once again, as if there is no leadership, many believers do what is right in their own eyes. Aspects of paganism have been combined with the worship of our Creator in Spirit and in Truth. People have been persuaded that we have no responsibility to the laws of God – that they have been nailed to the cross. – and while Christianity struggles the enemies of the gospel prosper.
Yes, many have failed to recognize that we are not without a King who has rules and regulations that are for our own good. Moses wrote of Him. He is the Creator we read about in the book of Genesis and He is the Elohim of Mt. Sinai who wrote His Ten Commandments in stone. He is the God of the Bible, the King of the Universe. His name is Yeshua, Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
In spite of what many would tell us, our King said that His commandments will never change. Will we do what is right in our own eyes or will we do what He says. Each of us has to make that decision.
