About Kingdom of the Son of His Love Series
Who is the King of kings? Join Martha as she discovers in the scriptures Jesus as John met Him on Patmos: King!
In the grim isolation of the wilderness, Jesus was tempted by a throne on earth. Taunted with the easy way of independence, soulish power and evil compliance.
King of the World, turning cold stone into selfish bread, initiating what God didn’t begin (the parapet), and dominating nations of mankind—normal king like all others. Control of matter, dominion over man, and even…ruling over God. This was the wilderness test. It was the issue of Ruling.
No! He would not be Preposterous King of base human control, by hidden powers of evil. He had lived before the Real Potentate of Bursting Fire and Rainbowed Aura. No! He was Son of the Emerald Throne and by that home, He would live. Under the Great Father He would rule.
A throne of Heaven, Jesus chose. Not seen nor known by earth. Not acclaimed, not served, but Hidden King, waiting for those with bowed hearts who would seek Him so earnestly that He could reveal Himself…as King.
Now! He must unveil His crown and tell the secret of His reign…to a single soul who will be His hidden subject. As a King, murdered by His own subjects, as Potter crushed by His created vessels, He became the Lamb of Sacrifice for the will of His Father, whose joy was to crush Him.
And then to crown Him.
