Yeshua is God’s appointed king. The angel Gabriel proclaimed, “He will reign over the House of Jacob forever” (Luke 1:33). Yeshua is Israel’s eternal ruler but His rule extends beyond Israel to all the nations of the world. As Daniel saw in his vision of heavens throne room, “And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him” (Dan. 7:14).
In God’s appointed order, God’s eternal king is also a priest forever. Because he offered himself in priestly service, Yeshua restored His father’s creation mandate for all humanity to rule over the planet. Yeshua is God’s appointed ruler but wonder of wonders, he will share his rule with us.
Messianic Jewish author, Marty Shoub explores how the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Israel fit within the Creator’s original mandate to bestow the rulership of planet earth to humanity, that special creature He created in His own image and likeness. It is a true story filled with majesty and hope beyond any other. It is indeed the good news of the kingdom.
