25 Bible Verses About Kingship
Today we will be dealing with 25 Bible verses about kingship. As Christian, we are from the clan of kings and priests. We are meant to live our lives like kings. The scripture makes us understand that God is the king of kings. The supreme kingmaker is our father, we should walk in the majestic of His beautiful name. However, it is rather unfortunate that we are not like that. Many believers have not keyed into the covenant of God’s kingship.
This explains why we see many believers living like paupers. Walking around like slaves in the empire built by their father. We have lost out the inheritance to ignorance and sin. Until the day the prodigal son in the scripture realized that he’s been living life even low below what the slaves of his father are living, he never made move to return home.
Even those that are not considered sons are living a more prosperous life than we that are sons of the king. It is time we returned to our father. Until you realize that you are from the generation of monarchs, your royal status will continue to stay hidden. We have compiled a list of Bible verses about Kingship.
These scriptural verses will help us understand the supremacy of God the father. His royalty as kings and our status of sons and daughters of his majesty.
