These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Revelation 17:14.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Love reigns. Jesus is Lord of lords and King of kings, He reigns and you reign in life through Him.

If you are reigning through Him, you will be interested to know how to reign in life. And we will get to that, but let us start with His description of reigning.

And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest. And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority make their importance felt. But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves. Luke 22:24-27.

Jesus loves you and released you from your sins by His blood and He made you a kingdom, priests unto Me who reign in life through Him. Revelation 1:5-6; Revelation 5:10. And He came to serve, and He still does. He is above all but He serves all. He is the King who shepherds My people in the path of life.

He came to seek out the lost, to do good, and to heal all those oppressed by the devil. I sent Jesus, My Word, to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions. He is your solid rock foundation, on whom you build your life if you want to reign over sin and death.

How do you build on Him as your foundation? He already told you:

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and does them, is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does NOT do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.

You build so that nothing can take you down, which is reigning as more than a conqueror, by hearing AND doing My Word.

But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. James 1:25.

You read My Word in the Bible and have revelation of it by My Spirit in you who teaches you all things and then you do it. You put it into practice. My Word tells you to forgive, then to be a doer you forgive and stop thinking about the one who offended you in unforgiveness. You will have to be severe with your thoughts and words, take them captive to the obedience of Christ, if you want to reign in life, for a king rules by decree, that is, by his word.

I made Samson, Saul, Solomon, and many others to be leaders and kings to reign over My people but they did not serve them, for even though they heard My Word they did not do it, and they all collapsed under the weight of sin and evil. Their houses were blown away by the wind of disobedience.

Through the first man, Adam, sin entered the world and as a result death. And death through the corrupted seed of Adam came to all his descendants but through the obedience of the One man, Jesus Christ, eternal life has come to all who are born again in Him. Through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, but through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous, for in His one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Jesus took on all your sins that had begun with Adam and bore them in His eternal sinless flesh in obedience to My Will to save you through Him and make you righteous with My own righteousness in Him. This is a gift that you must receive to reign or you are still in your sins and sin is master over you.

For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17.

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. I punished sin in the flesh in Him so that the requirement of the Law (the wages of sin is death and a life must be given for a life lost) is fulfilled in Him for you and there is now no condemnation for you who are in Him. You are righteous. You are established in righteousness in Him as if you had never sinned. This is by grace through faith. Grace is My divine life again available to flow into you to make you partakers of My divine nature in your humanity. And when you are filled with My life (abundance of grace) and established in righteousness you reign over all evil. You rule in the midst of your enemies. You are more than a conqueror. Why? Because you conquer evil with good.

Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. “But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:17-21.

Keep standing on the rock. It is only by putting your roots, your very foundation, into the Rock of My Word, Jesus, that you will keep the position of dominion authority I gave man from the start. You were made to reign with Me, not against Me, but with Me in the most powerful, blessed, fruitful, holy, joyful, and beautiful Kingdom there ever was, is, or will be. A place of grace where all reign.

There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:3-5.

And like Jesus, true reigning is serving. That is the only fruitful way to reign. Your gifts reach perfection in serving, in using your gifts to minister to others, that is the only way they fully develop and produce a harvest.

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11.

The Holy Spirit manifests in grace endowments, gifts that are given to each one for the benefit of all. Otherwise, reigning only for your own glory and pleasure will make you unfruitful and divide and destroy your kingdom, as it did for Saul and Solomon. They both started out in the Spirit but ended in the flesh. It should be the other way around.

When you stop serving people and instead start using them for your pleasure it is then you lose your position and destroy your own self as well, the flesh you sought to serve so hard will turn and destroy your body, your destiny, and your eternal life. If all you do is feed your flesh it will eventually devour you. The jaws of hell are never satisfied. But on the Rock the jaws of hell cannot prevail against you. For on the Rock of the revelation of Jesus Christ as your justifier is built the church, the body of Christ, and the jaws of hell shall not prevail against it. No storm can take down My church.

Consider again this Scripture and look at the word “reign.”

For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17.

First if you align your life with Adam, that is, rebellion to My Word, death will reign over you. But if you align yourself with Jesus by being born again in obedience to My Word then YOU reign in life through Him. In the Greek language in which it was first written, the word “reign” is “basileuo,” which means to be a king, to reign. It is from “basileus,” which means “king.” To reign as a king is to exercise dominion. It is an exercise of kingly power. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, you rule and reign through Him as kings and priests.

In My plan for mankind and My first words of him and over him were to take dominion over the earth, which is the Hebrew word “radah,” which means to reign, have dominion, to dominate, to tread down. Do you see why I tell you to tread upon the devil and his demons? To dominate over sin and evil? For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under the law of sin and death but under grace. Romans 6:14.

Why then is sin and death enslaving so many? Why is the devil oppressing even believers? You have abdicated your position of dominion to the devil through fear, sin, and not being established in righteousness. If you do not understand that your sins are gone by the blood of Jesus and that I have made you righteous in Him with My own righteousness which you cannot lose, you will not walk in virtue and you will be easy prey to the attacks of oppression through shame, guilt, and further sin producing further shame and guilt. You will be subject to torment.

By your words you are declared righteous and by your words you are condemned. The devil is the accuser of believers, and he will accuse you night and day that you are not righteous. He knows if you declare and receive the abundance of grace (My life in you) and the GIFT of righteousness by faith you will reign over him now and forever. You will tread him down every time.

In righteousness you will be established; you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Isaiah 54:14-15.

Declare yourself righteous with My righteousness and thank Me for that gift. Do it NOW.

For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. 2 Peter 1:8-11.

Your days of fear and oppression are over. Jesus died to set you free and break the power of sin over you. Receive that, love it, be grateful for it, and if you should sin, know that you have an advocate in Heaven, Jesus Christ the righteous one, and on earth, the Holy Spirit, your inner witness that your sins and offenses I remember no more. You overcome Satan because of the blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony. You overcome evil with good. You overcome fear with faith. And you overcome the flesh by walking in the Spirit, that is, by hearing and doing My Word.

Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. Hebrews 2:14-15.

Come share My joy for I have seated you at My right hand in Christ as kings and priests reigning with, in, and through Jesus Christ your Lord, My Son, who is KING of kings and LORD of Lords.

But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen. 1 Timothy 6:11-16.

I have made available to you in Christ Jesus abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness. Will you not receive Him and all the gifts I give you in Him? It would honor Me if you stood up and took your dominion authority upon the earth. Just remember that true reigning is serving Me and your neighbor. Then you will reign indeed and no evil will harm you.

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20.

I love you. Your names are recorded as kings and priests. Do not forget your authority. Love gives you authority and you are to exercise it in love, with love, through love, and for love. Just as I created you.

And on His robe and on His thigh, He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16.
