He is our Prophet, Priest, and King,
[Heb 1:1 ESV] Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
[Heb 1:2 ESV] but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
[Heb 1:3 ESV] He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
Jesus states where His Authority is from.
[Jhn 12:49 ESV] For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment--what to say and what to speak.
[Jhn 12:50 ESV] And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me."
A Prophet of God is commanded to Say what God gives them to say.
[Eze 33:7 ESV] "So you, son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.
[Eze 33:8 ESV] If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
[Eze 33:9 ESV] But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, that person shall die in his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.
[Col 1:15 ESV] He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
[Col 1:16 ESV] For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things were created through him and for him.
[Col 1:17 ESV] And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
[Col 1:18 ESV] And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.
[Col 1:19 ESV] For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
[Col 1:20 ESV] and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
[Heb 2:17 ESV] Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
[Heb 7:24 ESV] but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever.
[Heb 7:25 ESV] Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
[Heb 7:26 ESV] For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.
[Jer 23:5 ESV] "Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
[Jer 23:6 ESV] In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: 'The LORD is our righteousness.'
[Isa 9:6 ESV] For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
[Isa 9:7 ESV] Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
[Rev 19:16 ESV] On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
[Luk 1:32 ESV] He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,
[Luk 1:33 ESV] and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."
No other name.
[Act 4:12 ESV] And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
[Dan 7:14 ESV] And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.
All will bow to Jesus.
All will bow and confess.
[Rom 14:10 ESV] Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God;
[Rom 14:11 ESV] for it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."
[Rom 14:12 ESV] So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
It is Written:
[Isa 45:23 ESV] By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: 'To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.'
[Phl 2:9 ESV] Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
[Phl 2:10 ESV] so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
[Phl 2:11 ESV] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Is Jesus your King? Is He your Leader?
Do you know His orders and are you pushing forward to obey His Orders?
Jesus said to the religious leaders.
[Jhn 8:42 ESV] Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.
Love of Jesus is to keep His commands.
[Jhn 14:15 ESV] "If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
[Jhn 14:16 ESV] And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,
[Jhn 14:17 ESV] even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
[Jhn 14:18 ESV] "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
[Jhn 14:19 ESV] Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
[Jhn 14:20 ESV] In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
[Jhn 14:21 ESV] Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him."
Switch Your Yoke
[Mat 11:28 ESV] Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
[Mat 11:29 ESV] Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
[Mat 11:30 ESV] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
