He had to fulfill the prophesies...<quoted text>
When Jesus was born he was visited by 3 wise men who followed a star that led them to him and he was anointed with lavish gifts of that time so it is said, so why wasn't Jesus confirmed as King then ?
And don't forget that there was already a King on the throne who saw the infant as a threat...You know what people are like with power
" Power corrupts and total power corrupts totally"
Why does that happen?
Because the god of this world Satan...has fallen..and e old way of ruling by domination and force has been replaced with a ruler who served and sacrificed..
Jesus showed up the religious authorities ..as not interested in truth , but desiring of control and fear of what the state of Rome might do to them...
Leading people with no real confidence in security by God.
Also Jesus showed up Pilate ..as a ruler who knew what was right but gave into pressure from a pressure group..so like politicians, not concerned with doing right but afraid of the crowd.
And lastly the people .." we have no king but Caesar '
Rejection of what makes a man a king..honesty , truth and integrity ...A man of noble heart.
for a King that dresses in finery and pomp and has a heart that has no integrity..
Seeing Jesus did not receive his authority to rule from any earthly source.
remember his disciples stood watching him disappear into the cloud.
Then Daniel tells us " In the visions of the night I saw someone like the son of man, and to the Ancient of Days he gained access, and to him was given rulership , authority that national groups tongues and languages should all serve him
Jesus was given all authority in heaven and on earth..and now he is returning..
How do we know he is returning
prophesy again Matthew 24 ..." wars and rumors of war , famines , earthquakes in one place after another, love of the greater number will cool off [ to God]..these will increase in intensity for the King is returning..
