Lord of All
Leonardo da Vinci took a friend to see and criticize his masterpiece, “The Last Supper.” Upon seeing the great work, the friend remarked, “The most striking thing in the picture is the cup!” The artist immediately took his brush and wiped out the cup, saying: “Nothing in my painting shall attract more attention than the face of my Master!”
The earth has known Jesus in His humiliation. The record of His life and ministry here is one of tears and the cross. His resurrection guaranteed the truth of His words and His deity. Still millions turn Him away even today.
He has ascended to heaven to prepare places for His own and to intercede for us. We shall go to be with Him at the end of life’s journey. One day He will return to take His bride to heaven. Those living at that time will not die but will be translated in a moment, caught away to heaven.
At the end of the Tribulation period, Jesus will come as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Then his full authority will be known and recognized by all. Every knee shall bow to Him and every tongue will confess that he is Lord of all. Some allow Him to be Lord of all now. They are headed for heaven but have a taste of heaven on earth. F. B. Meyer cried, “Oh for more of heaven on the way to heaven!” Then he explained that this is a prayer we can almost answer for ourselves by seeking more of Him who is Himself the heaven of heaven — the Lord Jesus.
Make Him Lord of all!
