Determining Your Citizenship

Jesus came as King of kings and Lord of lords, ruler over all. Being in relationship with Jesus means joining His kingdom, putting us under His rule and authority. This requires obedience to His commands on our part. It is not the same as a democracy.

A democracy is headed by elected leaders who can be changed based on their popularity with people.

A democracy allows participation by members of that democracy in the decision-making process. The people can change the rules.

The leadership in a democracy represents the people.

A king rules on the basis of His birth and is king for life.

A kingdom is ruled by a king who gives decrees and expects obedience. Approval by the people is not involved.

In a kingdom the people represent the king.

Which domain are you a citizen of?

Revelation 19:16
On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
