The Fifth Horseman News

And I saw a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True… (Revelation 19:11)

The Fifth Horseman News – July 10, 2010

The King

Sitting in front of my monitor today I wondered what to write. After getting a bite to eat I flipped on the boob-tube to find out if the world was still here and beheld this headline: “The King has moved to Miami”. Whoa!

At the risk of turning this into another LeBron piece (gag), I do think the present hoopla over the, so called, “King” is worthy of comment.

In short, I feel sorry for LeBron, or anyone, for that matter that either foists upon themselves or has foisted upon them the lofty title of, “King”. The position has no upward mobility for goodness sake. After you’re proclaimed “King” there’s no place to go but down; is there?

Added to that bright future are the totally insane and unbalanced expectations of those that have proclaimed you “Theirs”. They really do expect the ‘world’ of you after all, the “King” eventually realizes. Talk about burden.

There is, after all, no earthly way that any MAN called “King” can do enough to be ‘kingly’ every moment, in every decision, every day, forever; is there? Let me answer that for you before you even have a chance to hesitate.

Yes, but let’s just say He doesn’t breathe the same air as you or I right now. (And no, I’m not talking about ‘Air Jordan’).

He resides in a place far far away, but is as close as a whisper. He is the only man to be rightly called “King of kings”. He came to this earth of ‘fallen kings’ and lived the only perfect life, every day, every moment, with every decision, and will continue to do so forever.

He is not beholden to Nike, Adidas, (or even UnderArmor). And has never, to my knowledge, even been seen in a pair of high top Chuck Taylor’s.

He is the one, the only, once and future King. The only “King” called Faithful and True. The fifth horseman of the Apocalypse: Jesus Christ.

He is the ONLY King I bow to. What about you?

Behold, a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace . .

Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace . . . Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. (Dan_3:17 and Jud_1:24)

The basic subject matter in this section of our meditations on growing in the grace of God pertains to the promises of God. Living by the promises of God is just another way to consider living by the grace of God. Again, our present verses speak of the ability of God. The more our understanding grows concerning what God is able to do, the more extensively will we trust in His promises.

Three young Israelites (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego) gave powerful testimony of the ability of God. King Nebuchadnezzar had ordered all the people to engage in idolatry, under threat of severe consequences. “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn . . . you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace” (Dan_3:4-6). The three young men had a bold answer, based on the ability of God. “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.” They did not bow down, so they were thrown into the blazing furnace. Yet, the Lord demonstrated His ability on their behalf. When the king looked into the furnace, he exclaimed, “Look! . . . I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” (Dan_3:25). Yes, God proved able to deliver them.

Hundreds of years later, Jude addressed God’s ability regarding two other important arenas. “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.” This aspect of God’s ability offers assurance that God can keep His people from stumbling while on earth and present them faultless when they reach heaven. We all know our own capacity to stumble spiritually into transgression or compromise. We also struggle with the condemnations of the enemy that rob us of expectation to eventually stand before our Lord in glory fully forgiven, cleansed, and transformed. Our God is able to work effectively in both arenas for all who humbly trust in Him.

Lord, how able You are! You are able to deliver us from the threatening situations of life. You are able to keep us from stumbling into sin. You are able to present us faultless before You some day in heaven. Lord, Your great ability encourages me to humbly depend upon Your many promises!
