The King is for His people. He is against the oppressor. He is a mighty Man of war. He brings prisoners into freedom.
When you are persuaded that this is the nature your King – you see the Christ in you subduing and dethroning other kingdoms and its rulers.
As emissaries of the King – you are being sent to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.Acts 26:18
You are being sent to open their eyes – blinded by legalism and religion 2 3:14
You are being sent to open the minds of unbelievers blinded by the god of this age 24:4
So that they see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
And here is the good news about Jesus Christ – that dispels darkness and brings Life:
That God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him Acts 10:38
That God reconciled the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them – by making Jesus who had no sin become sin for us. 2 5:19
In His willingness to be judged for us – Christ’s love is displayed
In His willingness to be judged for us – Christ alone holds the right to judge
For He has set a day when he will judge the world Acts 17:31
And this is the message of reconciliation He has entrusted to us.
Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, persuade others…. 2 5:11
For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all…. 2 5:14
