Our Focal Scripture introduces Jesus’ parable about a certain noble man who went to a far country to receive a kingdom for himself. That man was not a king, he was simply a noble man, he belonged to an aristocratic class, he may have had a close affinity with kings and royalty, but he was not a king. He may have hung around kingship but he was not exactly a king.
Notice that this noble man went to receive a kingdom. After being an aristocrat, mingling with kingship and with royalty, he went to receive a kingdom. He went to receive what he had merely been hanging around. He went to receive a package that put him in a class he did not originally belong to. He went to possess a new possession that promoted him into kingship.
Friend, you may have been a noble man without having a kingdom, you may have hung around kingship and royalty without having any true evidence of kingship and royalty in your life; and in this season, I decree, go and receive your kingdom. Your gates shall be open to tokens of greatness and kingship. Your life will witness a new manifestation of the higher realms you have always admired. You will receive new kingdoms.
You may have started as a noble man but you will not end as a noble man. Good things may be happening on your current level, but there is a higher place, and you are getting in there. Good news may have surrounded you back to back, but a new season is beckoning where you will move from strength to strength and from glory to glory. A greater glory will overshadow your current level of glory. I hear your name in your higher level.
Don’t accept to end where you started. You may be a noble man, but you have the portion of kings.
