2 Kings 11:12
“And he brought out the king’s son, put the crown on him, and gave him the Testimony; they made him king and anointed him, and they clapped their hands and said, “Long live the king!”
-As a sign of authority; kings, some queens, princes & princesses wore physical crowns in the biblical times & other monarchy’s have maintained this culture up-to date. Joash was made king in Judah during a time characterized by hostilities & deaths of kings heirs. Athaliah mother of Ahaziah saw that all her children were dead & she inherited the kingdom of Judah. She did not have the slightest idea that Jehosheba had rescued Joash from the edge of her sword. Prior to these events, Jehu had cleared off the seventy sons of king Ahab as prophesied by prophet Elijah. Despite all these odious events; God revealed Himself faithful to Joash & crowned him king in Judah by Jehoiada the priest at a tender age. Similarly; during the birth of our great Shepherd Jesus Christ; such authoritarian rulership orchestrated by one; king Herod was evidenced & he massacred many Jewish children in Bethlehem as prophesied by prophet Jeremiah. Gods’ divine salvation plan was not hindered by such human interference for Christ ultimately accomplished His mission on earth. It is through this honorable cause that we have received victory through Jesus’ works on the cross. Christ Has qualified us as His sons, clothed us with righteousness & crowned us with His loving kindness & tender mercies so that as kings & priests to God; we may reign on the earth (Rev 5:10).
We thank You Father for the gift of life & for this far that You have brought us; be glorified forever. You have revealed Yourself faithful to us always despite the challenges that we face; receive all our praise. Remember Jesus our president, deputy president, all the governors, senators, women reps, Mca’s, Ps’es, Cs’es, executive heads & all other leaders, that You may shepherd them all Father according to Your divine will. Fill us all Holy Spirit with Your wisdom, knowledge, power & understanding that we may take charge of our areas of domain for Your merciful love is everlasting. Amen
