Good Words for Today: April 22

“King shall shut their mouths because of him” (Isaiah 52:15). This verse describes the reaction of the kings of the earth when they finally stand before Christ at his Second Coming. All the jabbering and boastful talk will come to an end. The majestic presence of the King of Kings will “shut the mouths” of all earthly kings. When he came the first time, they laughed at him. They hated him, rejected him, and eventually crucified him. The religious leaders teamed up with the political leaders to nail him to the cross. But much to their astonishment, he wouldn’t stay dead. He rose from the grave, rallied his disciples, gave them their marching orders, and then he returned to his Father in heaven. Meanwhile his followers began to spread the news, “He’s alive!” Two thousand years have come and gone and still the flame spreads to every corner of the earth. A day is coming when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord (see Philippians 2:9-11). If you think the kings are shocked now, just wait for that day!
