Two Kings

November 29, 2015



 Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the newborn King of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.”

~Matthew 2:1-2


“He came the first time to die; He is coming again to raise the dead. When He came the first time, they questioned whether He was King; the next time the world will know that He is King.

~Adrian Rogers


Everyone needs a King, everyone has a King but not everyone loves the KING. In the above text we have two kings: have you ever contrasted the two?

  • Herod was appointed by Rome–Jesus was anointed by God.
  • Herod was king for a time–Jesus is King for eternity.
  • Herod was king with a small k–Jesus was King of kings.
  • Herod became a king–Jesus was born a King.
  • Herod was evil–Jesus was good.
  • Herod ruled by force and fear–Jesus rules by love and grace.
  • Herod was a mad man–Jesus was the God Man.
  • Herod was a liar and murderer–Jesus was Truth and Life.

All these wonderful attributes of the KING of kings should engender love and admiration from the entire world but unfortunately not everyone loves the KING. They will bow the knee to Him when He returns.


  • I may have posted some incorrect info on Buford: Peggy said he did have a seizure but it was not a stroke. He has a UTI and was dehydrated. He was smiling when I visited him yesterday evening but he will be in DGH for 3-4 days. He was disappointed about the baptism and so was I but maybe next week. Nathan Sanford is scheduled for today.
  • TODAYS SCHEDULE: Deacons at 7:45, donuts and biscuits at 8:30, LCBS at 9:15, and worship at 10:15 with a Baptism. AWANA at 5:30 along with Visitation. Evening worship at 6:15. 
  • I tried to send a text on my new CALL NOW app but I think it did a voice mail and that was not my voice.
