He is the King of the Universe!!!

Each night after the first lighting the prayer is:

“Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us to kindle the Chanukah light. Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who performed miracles for our forefathers in those days, at this time.”

Me-lech ha-olam is Hebrew for King of the Universe. Olam also means ‘eternal, eternity’, that means His kingdom will have no end!

The first question in the New Testament is found in the Gospel of  Matthew, Chapter 2. “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king,  behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, (2) Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in
the east, and are come to worship him.”

Both Isaiah and Luke confirm that Yeshuah’s kingdom will never end.

Isaiah 9:6 & 7 foretells, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

The Angel of God told Mary, as recoreded in Luke 1:30, “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. (31) And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (31) He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (32) And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

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

I challenge you today to pledge anew your allegiance to the one true King! Worship Him with your whole heart today! Let your light shine as an overflow of your worship to the one true King!
